John and Kerry like to go on lots of dog walks around Dorset and West Bay was one of the first places they went on a dog walk. They enjoy the stunning views of West Bay and around Bridport as well as the atmosphere of the town on a busy day. Johns dad recommended an old ruin near to West Bay where he had undertaken some photography work himself. He thought it would be an ideal location to finish off the shoot with great views across the coast and stunning sunsets and I had to agree!
Ed and Emily met a few years ago at the Village Gym in Bournemouth over a treadmill! Ed thought Emily was a keen runner but she was only training for a 10k, never to run that far again! Their shared love of work (gym), reward (wine) led to a happy few years of training, wining and dining. Emily always loved Exbury Gardens as a child so thought it would be a great place for their engagement shoot
Chris and Ameys perfect weekend includes a long country walk exploring the New Forest followed by a lazy pub lunch, washed down by several drinks along the way! The idea of their engagement shoot was to do a mini pub crawl and dog walk, exploring some of their favourite spots in the Forest. This is a tradition they hope to continue for many years to come.
Simon and Holly had their engagement shoot at Redclyffe Yacht Club as Holly's dad is a member there and Holly has a lot of memories there as well as regularly visiting Wareham. It was a cold and windy day but we braved it.
Jamie and Zoe, first met at Hamble Primary school in Hampshire and both lived in Hamble too as well as spending their summers down on Hamble Quay. Jamie then moved to Warsash and they both went to different secondary schools. 4 years ago, Zoe moved to Warsash and they got back in contact together and started dating. They would go to Warsash on walks along the sea front and so wanted to do the same for their engagement shoot and to include the Hamble-Warsash pink ferry as it connects the places where they both lived and met.
Richard and Leanda love their coffee and on a cold and rainy day, that worked out very well to start off at Boston Tea Party in Salisbury with lunch and a coffee followed by a short trip around Salisbury and then to Old Sarum just before it started to tip it down again
Andrew and Stephanie met through family and friends in Bournemouth whilst Stephanie was visiting from The States. She made a lasting impression on Andrew which resulted in them staying firmly in touch. In January 2016, they visited Dallas Texas where Andrew proposed and Steph packed up and moved permanently to England. They picked Bishops Waltham and The Palace Ruins for their engagement shoot because of the ties Stephanie had there during her childhood visits to England and it was the last place her and her mum visited before her mums passing. Steph wanted to share that special place with her soon to be husband.
