Engagement Photos On Portland Bill, Dorset
The journey of being a photographer is endless and unpredictable. Two big reasons that push me to keep going. Up until very recently I had only taken PHOTOS OF A WEDDING PROPOSAL once, and now they seem to be coming in fast! Stu is a good friend of mine, who called me up for the challenge to shoot this special surprise moment! I had known that this day was coming for a while. Daisy was oblivious to this moment, and to the fact she would have a set of engagement photos to go with it!
Set the scene…
Due to the lockdown the UK was recently put into, the couple shoot had been delayed, and Stu was getting (understandably) impatient. During this weekend I had planned a camping trip in Dorset, and thought that Portland just off of Weymouth would be the best place for it to happen. The Lighthouse and rugged coast during a sundown would be a winner. Ive shot here many times so I was confident it would all fall into place.
How did we pull it off…
Daisy was told by Stu that we had just met up on a bank holiday to HANG OUT AND GET SOME PHOTOS. Little did she know what was about to happen. Telling Stu and Daisy to stand near the waters edge casually, I shouted “Omg look at the seal”! It was so good even my partner Sophie fell for it. In fact, I nearly fell for it! Daisy looking away out to sea, Stu was down, down on that knee and proud! By now me and Sophie (who had my second camera) had stepped back and were clicking away as fast as we could not wanting to miss a second.
From here the mood was set and the photos were coming in fast! I never thought 3 years ago when first meeting Stu, that this would be happening. The journey is endless and unpredictable and I’m so happy for them both.
