Thomas & Caroline engagement shoot

T-C pre 25con

It was a real pleasure to photograph the engagement shoot for Thomas & Caroline. Their infectious smiles, the gentle Sussex countryside and their love for one another was a wonderful mix for lovely photos. Their wedding at the superb Cowdray Park is coming up soon……

I offer engagement shoots to any couples at a location of your choice. Alternatively I can find a scenic spot for you; a trip to the seaside, a country walk or picnic in the park, whatever you might prefer. The shoot time usually lasts about an hour with different backdrops for light and mood. I like to keep things relaxed and easy for natural shots with your personalities coming through. It is an opportunity to hang out and get some nice shots  – you can make into invite cards etc. Its also nice to get to know you a bit more before your wedding day.

No time to linger though, work to be done and all that…..must come back again sometime though….!!
