South Wales beach engagement shoot
Anna & Mark at Llantwit Major beach
We are so blessed to live by such stunning beaches and rugged landscapes in South Wales. Anna & Mark have this beautiful backdrop almost on their doorstep and this beach is a regular favourite of theirs so it was an obvious choice for this engagement portrait shoot. As I soon discovered this turned out to not really be an engagement shoot at all, but a ‘just married’ shoot. Sadly Mark’s mother passed away recently and so they made the decision to bring the legal wedding forward so that she could be a part of the celebrations. I’m sure she really appreciated getting to see them married and the original wedding party will go ahead as planned in July, so they are spreading the celebrations out.
I really enjoyed hanging out with these two. They are so natural and easy with each other that they made my job easy! There was a lot of laughter during this fun shoot and it was lovely getting to know them both better as we explored this rugged coastline. All of my full day packages include an engagement portrait shoot as it’s a great chance for us to hang out before the wedding day and have a bit of a practice run. You can see the sort of shots I like to take and how I work, and I can see how you are with each other and how you are in front of the camera. Many people feel nervous at the beginning of the shoot but quickly relax and are really enjoying it by the end.
Coming from an art background I always aim to capture a feeling or mood in my photography that will take you back to how you felt in that moment. I hope Anna & Mark will look back on these photographs in years to come and remember how they felt at the start of their married lives and remember all the special times they walked along this beach. I’m looking forward to the wedding party in July 🙂
