We’ve been trying to arrange an engagement shoot with Lydia and Ian for a few months now – but thanks to weather and other commitments weren’t able to find a date that worked for everyone until last Sunday – which was lucky as the wedding is only a week away!
But I was glad we managed it as I always find an engagement shoot is a great way for me to get to know a couple and for them to get some practice being photographed – it makes it easier for everyone on the wedding day if e’ve worked together before.
I like to keep this kind of shoot as simple as I can – we just wandered into Lydia & Ian’s local park, which is a wetland reserve on the site of the old railway sidings in their home town of Lewes, East Sussex.
I was very happy with the location – I wish it was a bit closer to home as I would definitely like to shoot there again! And Lydia and Ian were naturals in front of the camera – as was Clarrie their beagle pup who came along as well.
We wandered around and found several different shooting locations, as you will see from the photos below. I’m very much looking forward to their wedding next weekend – it’ll be fun!
