Engagement Shoot

It still feels like a bit of an ‘American thing’ to have an engagement shoot to some, but I love them!

Unlike a wedding, we get to choose the weather, and during this shoot the weather was truly epic! May I introduce the amazing Suz and Andy to you! Suz is also a photographer, in fact her and her partner photographed my wedding, nearly 14 years ago! Now it’s her turn and I was completely honoured to be shooting her big day!! I’d not met Andy, so the engagement shoot is a great way for us all to spend some time together, and get use to the way I shoot.

Suz picked out an awesome location for the beginning part of the shoot. A bakery and coffee shop, names Bakers in Bolton. If you’ve not been and your close, it’s a must! According to Suz and Andy, brunch there is great…and I can vouch for the cakes and coffee!!

As we were shooting in the cafe we could see the sun was still out so we made a dash for ‘golden hour’ and we were blessed! We found a lovely hill side (traditionally boggy…well it is England!), Andy pulled the car over and we jumped out! Suz and I know what a gift this light is and we made full use of it for sure!

So here are just a few tasters of what we got up to! I can’t wait to see these two get married in only a couple of weeks, they are literally ‘made for each other’ and I can’t wait to document their moment!!

Andrea and Mark’s engagment shoot

Engagement shoots are still thought as ‘an American’ thing…but I love them!!

They give my clients time to settle in front of the camera before their big day. I also get to spend time with them, seeing how they interact with each other and ensuring I capture their ‘best side’. So when Andrea and Mark booked one with me I was so pleased!!

Mark proposed to Andrea on the Clent Hills, so this was the beautiful location for our shoot. Andrea and Mark had watched my video on how to prepare for the shoot (click here to see it!) so they came fully prepared.

The weather was perfect, a slight lazy sun creating a beautiful haze! It did get a little chilly, so a lush blanket came in handy half way through!! It was a great day, I can’t wait for their wedding day in a few weeks time!!

These guys love for each other is so genuine that when I turned my back to take a pic, they were still embracing each other! So awesome!! So here is a grab shot I took, I love the ‘realness’ of it… surrounded by our prop bags, they’re having a moment!!… Don’t forget if you’d like a shoot get in touch: lucy@smithimaging.co.uk or visit www.smithimaging.co.uk for more images
