Simon & Que’s Engagement Photoshoot, West Sussex

Simon & Que first contacted me on recommendation from a mutual friend. I instantly loved Que’s ‘posh’ use of the English language in his emails, something that has become a source of constant amusement between the boys and I, and I knew I was going to love them both from the get-go.

On Sunday 6th April we met at Wakehurst Place in West Sussex for their engagement photoshoot. I always include a ‘pre-wedding’ shoot in my package as I think it really helps my couples to get a feel for my working style and a chance to get used to the camera. In addition we always wind up with some lovely, informal pictures of the pair in question, these are often used as part of the wedding day by way of a guest book or signing frame.

We started with some pictures in the grounds of the house at Wakehurst. I had the boys perch on some steps and we just had a bit of a joke to get them feeling relaxed. Relaxed people = much better photos! Simon is not a huge one for ‘public displays of affection’ so we kept things casual with hand holding, hugs and lots of smiles and laughter.

Our shoot took part in the latter part of the day so the grounds were quiet and we had almost all the areas we visited to ourselves!

We found some quieter, more private areas, including the walled garden where the boys created some beautiful pictures with very little direction, they are naturals and so very photogenic! We also strolled down to one of the lakes and I got some snaps of them on one of the lovely bridges that they have there.

As the light faded we headed indoors where I had use of one the grand drawing rooms. We finished off the shoot with some indoor pictures and captured one of my favourites of the day! The below picture (the last shot) of them holding hands was actually made into an engraved piece of art as a wedding gift from one of their guests and looks beautiful!

We now cannot wait to photograph their big day in August 🙂
