A Portland Beach engagement shoot

Sarah and Dylan Engagement-103

Do you feel nervous about the idea of someone taking your picture? What about having a one hour engagement shoot, just the two of you? If the answer is yes, I promise you are not the only one who feels like this!

I have the best time hanging out with my clients and getting to know them on pre-wedding shoots. It’s a time for you to spend an hour with your special one and have some beautiful images which capture your love and personality. The style of photography which I use throughout all my sessions whether it be couple shoots, engagement shoots or weddings is natural and relaxed.

Sarah and Dylan flew all the way over from Auckland in New Zealand for their shoot! I love New Zealand!! I was fortunate enough to spend a month out there about 10 years ago – I’d love to go again. I am capturing their wedding day in a couple of months at the beautiful venue in Portland Bill, The Penn Castle, an incredible venue which has a stunning view of the sea!

We chatted about their plans, their lives and passions, how they met and had a great couple of hours. It’s important to me to capture you, I don’t pose you into a position that feels awkward and isn’t natural to you. I guide my couples, give them actions and things to talk about that brings out relaxed and natural moments.

I think you will agree they look gorgeous! If you are worried about having your photograph taken, please get in touch – I want to assure people it’s not some cheesy shoot where you are going to look awkward. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Love Charlotte
