Engagement Shoot! Alex and Sian in Glamorgan

July 19th, 2010

Back in the win­ter I met up with Alex and Sian to talk about wed­ding photography.
They want­ed to book me after Sian had found me on the WPJA. I find that a good sign as all my cou­ples who find me through the WPJA know what stan­dard and style of pic­tures to expect.

They booked me for an engage­ment shoot.
If you’ve met me, you know that I wax lyri­cal about how great these shoots are.
I real­ly do my best to help you relax in front of the cam­era and if that means act­ing like a clown then so be it.
When your wed­ding day comes around, you feel com­fort­able with me as a per­son, but you’ll also have a nice col­lec­tion of non-wed­ding pictures!

We drove to the area where the wed­ding would be, had a look at the church and Sian’s par­en­t’s house where the recep­tion would be held.
On our way to The Vale of Glam­or­gan, the sky looked dread­ful but I had remem­bered that Alex, like me is obsessed by clouds so we enjoyed cloud spot­ting and thor­ough­ly enjoyed it, no mat­ter how bor­ing and nerdy that may of sounded.

Enjoy this lit­tle hand­ful of pictures.
Also, keep a look out for Alex and Sian’s wed­ding on here very soon.
It may of been my favorite wed­ding of the year so far! It was amazing!

Aren’t they a fan­tas­tic look­ing couple?
Both of them are doc­tors from the very hos­pi­tal I was born at. True story!

I real­ly enjoyed Alex and Sian’s com­pa­ny, we had loads of fun!

I thought I’d try some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent and shoot in a field of bar­ley. You know, ’cause I’ve nev­er done it before. Ever

Thank you Alex and Sian.
We had loads of fun did­n’t we?

I can’t wait to blog their wed­ding pic­tures. I’ve been des­per­ate to from the beginning!

Take care and have a good week.

    My favourite? It’s tricky — but the 5th one down is great — the angle of the cloud just makes it stand right out.

    I guess I’m a bit of a cloud spot­ter too.

    What a beau­ti­ful cou­ple!! I LOVE that ring shot in the filed- it looks like it’s flow­ing, like a riv­er! Fantastic!

    now i’m going to have that song in my head — …“upon the fields of bar­ley…” they ARE a super cute cou­ple! :) from the very first shot one can tell how com­fort­able they are with you. fan­tas­tic vari­ety of shots here.

    Gor­geous pho­tos all around. Pho­tos #3,4,5 are brilliant!!

    Incred­i­ble shoot — If I had an eye half as good as yours I’d be a hap­py man.

    That’s a great shoot — I can’t pick a favourite, but the sil­hou­ette shots stand out espe­cial­ly the reflect­ed one in the water which I had to stare at for a while to work out :)

    So warm and lovely…great shots!

    Love that pool reflec­tion shot — so cool, the rip­ples make it just perfect.

  9. Becky Young July 27th, 2010 at 3:34 pm

    Love these! #3 and the shot of her hand are my favorites, great job!

    Hi Joseph, Sian has just shown me the wed­ding pho­tos (I was one of the brides­maids). They are unbe­liev­ably good and total­ly sum up an incrred­i­ble day. Excel­lent work, put them on the blog ASAP please x
