A Brighton Engagement Shoot
Shoshana & Grant
Hello winter, remember summer?
Planning a wedding is a busy time for anyone, and it can be easy to forget that, while everyone wants photos of their big day, a lovely set of engagement photos can convey a real sense of excitement at what lies ahead.
Shoshana and Grant live in London and asked to have their engagement shoot in Brighton. You can be quite spoilt in this city. Brighton is a spectacular location, offering some great backdrops, the sea acting as a canvas to he pier with its attractions and amusements.
But it wasn’t all seaside-based – we went and used the local graffiti as an intimidating wrap around backdrop and then we drove to a local apple orchard for some shots amongst the long grass on a gorgeously sunny day, making for some genuinely romantic images.
Pre wedding shoots are a great way to remember that you love each other while forgetting all the stree associated with the planning side of things.
The sea and sky provided restful blue backgrounds for some photos, offering a nice contrast to the fun and brightly coloured, busier images of things like the funfair ride and helter skelter.
You can see from the eye contact and smiles between them that this is a young couple very much in love, who can’t wait to tie the knot and spend the rest of their lives together. With her long red hair catching the light, broad smile and pretty summer dress, Shoshana looks every inch the radiant bride to be.
I think I’ve managed to get a nice range of images for this shoot, including ones of them sitting, standing, literally jumping for joy on the pier, (thanks to the lady who runs the Trampoline ride) and generally looking relaxed and glad to be together!
Genuinely, the smiles and laughter of this shoot were very natural as they should always be.
A lovely couple – and doing their Brighton engagement shoot made me look forward to covering their wedding even more!
