Imagine heading to the beach at sunset with your soul mate, only to happen upon the most perfect setting. Live music, candlelight, a glass of bubbles and a perfect ring. SO romantic.
Luckily for us photographers Travers & Brown were there to capture the whole thing.
Yusuf tells us all about the proposal;
“I met Roshni through mutual friends and were friends for a while before we got into a relationship.With the proposal, I knew I wanted to do something really special for her and it was really important that we could capture it as well so we would always have the memory to look back on. I think it’s very easy to sometimes forget what was said or how things happened especially when you are in the moment so I thought it would be really nice for Roshni to have some beautiful pictures and footage of that day to always look back on and one day share with our children!
I chose cornwall because I wanted to take her as close to abroad as I could without leaving the country, and when I found Watergate Bay online it seemed perfect. It was pretty difficult trying to organise everything without Roshni finding out, but luckily she had no idea. I told Roshni that I had to go down to Cornwall for a business meeting and we could make it into a trip away at the same time, so she had no idea.
I knew exactly how I wanted it to look like and was lucky enough to find Elle from Inspire Hire, who helped bring everyone together. I didn’t have a chance to check that everything was in place before heading down to the beach, I fully trusted Elle and she didn’t disappoint, it was just as I envisaged it.
I convinced Roshni to go for a sunset walk on the beach. I’m not entirely sure when she realised something was up but maybe it was the sofa, the singer or the photographer hiding behind the rock anyway it was a total surprise and when I finally got down on one knee and asked her to marry me, she said yes. As for plans for the wedding..we are already married! We planned our wedding in 8 weeks and got married on Nov 30th at Belvoir Castle!”
A little romance for you this Wednesday afternoon in the form of a super sweet engagement shoot.
Aly and Jack headed to Leadenhall Market and St Dunstan’s in London for their loved up images. They chose the locations as they are local for the couple and some of the spots are in the Harry Potter films (my fav!). These two have so much style (I am totally coveting Aly’s polka dot shirt) and a lot of love.
Thanks to Alice Boagey for sharing these lovely images today.
On September 27th my fiancé Jack and I met Alice at Leadenhall Market in the city. We chose this particular spot because we live in the East End and Jack, indulging me a bit, knew that parts of the Harry Potter films were shot here and I’m a huge fan :-) We wanted a location that had character and was off the beaten path from more traditional London locations.
Take one super glam couple who are head over heels in love, place them in an incredible location and these are the results you get.
Avi and Justin headed to the breathtaking sand dunes in Utah dressed in their finest attire for their engagement shoot. I love these intimate and romantic portraits.
Thanks so much to Tyler Rye Photography for sharing these wonderful shots today, here is what he had to say about the shoot;
“This couple wanted to shoot their engagement at the sand dunes near Nephi Utah. We got there just before a big storm rolled in. The storm made the sand dunes look beautiful and the sunset was simply amazing!”
Those of you that are newly engaged may be interested in having an engagement shoot. It’s not only a great way of getting to know your photographer and relaxing in front of the lens, but it’s super fun too. And you get some lovely snaps to treasure for years to come of course.
Linzi and Dan won their wedding photography on WWW in our recent competition with Babb Photo. In a few weeks I have their gorgeous nuptials to feature (eekk), but this afternoon I am sharing their sweet Spitalfields Market engagement.
Thanks so very much to Alice at Babb Photo for providing these lovely images today.
Linzi; “Dan and I chose Spitalfields market as the location for our engagement shoot as it is where we had our first date 3 1/2 years ago. (It nearly didn’t happen though as Dan was an hour late for our first date! ) We felt that having some photos of where it all started was fitting with us beginning another chapter of our lives together.”
It’s always a pleasure to share a set of honest and natural images.
This week we are in Barcelona for this intimate engagement shoot of hipster cool couple Zoe and Mads. I adore their style, their emotion and the whole feel of this lovely shoot. What a setting.
Thanks so much to Jesus Caballero for sharing these remarkable shots today, here is what he had to say about the shoot;
“I would like to send you an engagement session in Barcelona, Spain, this last May.
I am a wedding photographer based in Lisbon, but I photograph in Barcelona and London normally (I have a lot of good friends!)
In this session, I photographed to Zoe and Mads. Zoe is a nice Canadian girl, and Mads is a crazy and funny Danish musician. Zoe was visiting Mads in May in Barcelona, and they decided to move to Canada after spring.
We decided to do a different session in a scenic and historic place, the lookout Bunker of Carmel, from the Spanish civil war. From here, you can see all the city, Barcelona, the mountains and the sea, it is an amazing place. This place it is the favourite of Mads and he liked to meet there with family and friends to enjoy the sunset. In fact, when we were there, we met with some Mads´s friends with families visiting this historic point.
I photographed them in a natural and non interfere way, just to enjoy the moment!”
