Portrait Engagement Photoshoot

Portrait photoshoots for couples who have just got engaged are great fun. They can be the perfect way to remember and document your special life event. I met with Yazmie & Rob in Slapton, Devon. This is the beach where Rob proposed in the winter. GEORGE PROPOSED TO MADDIE ON A DORSET BEACH. We had planned to meet at 19:30, to hopefully catch a sunset, as a low light can make a set of photos really pop. What we did arrive at was a potential thunderstorm. This worked well. Thick clouds during the evening really helped my cameras expose the colours of the environment.

For portrait photos like this with couples, a little planning with outfits goes a long way. Rob & Yaz read my brief via Instagram DM’s well, and they nailed it! The posing of the photos themselves was new to them, so I was there to help. For this photoshoot, I wanted to try giving directions to keep them busy, as opposed to just standing still. I asked them to hold hands and lift their arms up and down, like a little dance.  I also asked Rob to give Yaz a piggyback, on the stones as I knew this would be tricky. The objective of this was to create laughter and responses, giving me a moment to photograph quickly.

We did this for about 50 minutes, and I captured about 1200 images in total. This gives me lots to work with for their gallery. I was also assisted by Eloise on the day who was taking photos with a short zoom lens from the side. Some of those photos are on this blog. I am so pleased with the outcome of this portrait shoot, as a photographer, I learned a lot about posing for couples. Big congrats to Yaz & Rob!
