Ashdown Forest Engagement Photoshoot – Amy & Tara

A beautiful summer Saturday evening in West Sussex was the setting for Amy & Tara’s Ashdown Forest engagement photoshoot. The girls met when they were studying at university and have been inseparable ever since, this was the first time I had met them in person, after several emails and immediately their love & chemistry shone!

Tara is originally from the Forest of Dean so Ashdown was a perfect spot for their photos, combining a taste of home and a nod to the area which they now call home together.

As always, my aim is to ensure my clients feel at ease before I start snapping away so we spent a few minutes chatting and I talked the girls through my ideas for the session. We started with a selection of shots with them both, and we had timed it to catch the beautiful end of the day golden sunshine.

The photoshoot was broken up with chatter and laughter, mostly between the girls (!) who only had to look at each other before bursting into fits of giggles, I absolutely LOVED their energy!

After a few portraits of each of them we moved to a different part of the woods to get some more candid & natural shots. My lifestyle-documentary style lends itself very nicely to taking a step back and capturing what’s going on around me, so I asked the girls to just do their thing, which I appreciate is easier said than done when you know there’s a photographer looming! They did amazingly though and I think the end results are gorgeous.

I am SO excited to photograph their wedding next year and can’t wait to work with them in the build up to their big day.
