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!

    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.
