New Forest Engagement Photography – Bluebell Season in Hampshire

Engagement Photography in the New Forest

The New Forest is always impressing me with every change of season. It’s a photographer’s dreams to live in such a unique area. In May we are spoiled with the blooming of Bluebells which can create the most beautiful scene for doing spring Engagement photos. You don’t have to venture far to find bluebells, but if you want to find fields of them, like this, you need to have a bit of local knowledge and some pre scouting. It was about a 20 minute walk from where we parked to arriving at the area where these photos were taken. There was some people around, but hardly any when you consider it was a hot and sunny bank holiday weekend in the New Forest.

The Shoot

I love days like this day in the Forest. The days when you can feel summer approaching. It was unseasonably hot for the beginning of May. I was a bit worried about the time of day, as the sun was right up in the sky. I knew we’d be under trees, but dappled light can be a nightmare sometimes. Mike and Julie were so easy going and really up for anything. Having natural photos was really important to them (as it always is to me), so I tried to keep my posing and direction minimal with an organic flow. Normally for engagement sessions I try to do 2 locations. One which is in a natural setting, like the forest, and one with some architecture. But on this day, surrounded by all these beautiful bluebells, and having almost the entire forest to ourselves, the forest location was plenty.

 

Bluebell season will be back again before we know it. If you’re wanting to do an engagement session or love shoot in the New Forest, get in touch.

It's so easy to get caught up in the planning of the wedding and start to lose sight of the real importance and reason for it: Because you want to be together, for the rest of your lives. Everything else about the day should take a back seat to that number one reason. For these two, it took a way back seat. Actually, those things didn't even exist when they got married. It wasn't about the big celebration and gathering of family and friends, it was just about being together. Fast forward to now, and they've decided to have a little celebration in honor of the vows they took several years ago.We got together on an early morning to get to k ...

London Engagement Photography :: Kerry & Jonas
I met Kerry the first night I arrived in China, after a long Chinese dinner and a ride on the back of a motorbike, through the busy streets of Fuyang, with a South African guy I had met just a few hours previously. (In case you think that's not the best decision I've ever made, I can promise you that it's not the worst.)She's been an easy person to keep up with, because every once in a while, we find ourselves in the same corner of the world again. This time, it was in London, and she had just gotten engaged to Jonas. She's American, he's German and they have such an amazing outlook on life, and this world. Eliot and I had an awesome day ...

You know when you see someone you haven't seen in ages, the conversation just flows and you feel like you'll never get caught up on everything that's happened since the last time you spoke? That's what happened with this girl, because I haven't seen her since.....*yikes* high school? We were next door neighbors growing up, and were always at one another house. Mostly I hung out at her house as I kind of liked her whole family. So when she contacted me to shoot her wedding, I was ecstatic. There's nothing like reconnecting with old pals, and learning what's been happening in their life. But most of all, how cool is it to meet the person they'v ...
