Love in the mist – Laura and Jamie’s engagement photo shoot in the New Forest

As a wedding photographer in the New Forest I am used to photographing in many conditions. Sun, cloud, rain even snow but thick fog in March was the last thing I expected when I woke up in the morning for this engagement photo shoot. As I approached the setting for this shoot, the beautiful East Close Boutique Hotel, two words sprang to mind – Creativity and Atmospheric. I wanted to try something a little different and give the photo shoot a dream like effect as the thick fog would give such a beautiful ‘cloud like’ back drop for these photographs.

Jamie and Laura, one of my wedding couples for this year, are getting married at East Close Hotel in May. Jamie was the best man, and Laura was a guest, at Scott and Gemma’s wedding at Audleys Wood Hotel and Spa in December and so it was lovely to meet up with them again.  Both Jamie and Laura are such lovely people and I am really looking forward to photographing their wedding day.  There is so much love between them and that really shows in the collection of photographs from this engagement photo shoot.  I loved taking a step back and photographing them be themselves, showing the wonderful bond between one another. Their love for one another coupled with the setting made for some really stunning photography.

Engagement photo shoots are the perfect way to celebrate such a special time in a couples life. A time that can pass by so quickly as the planning of the wedding takes over. All of the wedding packages that I offer include a complimentary engagement shoot as I feel it is important to remember this special time and have photographs that represent the love between you as a couple. I also include a framed 7×5″ picture to remember the occasion as so often photographs can sit on your computer that should really be shown off. Primarily I photograph in Hampshire and Surrey however I do photograph weddings across the UK and internationally too.

Please take a look at the couples section of by blog for more of my engagement shoots too If you are getting married and are still yet to find your wedding photographer please contact me with your date and wedding venue to check on my availability via my contact page, it would be lovely to hear from you.
