Engagement Shoot! Chris and Victoria in Ashton Court, Bristol

September 29th, 2009

I love this job!
On Sat­ur­day, I met up with Chris and Vic­to­ria for their pre-wed­ding engage­ment shoot. Chris was the best man for Craig, from Deb­by and Craig, the cou­ple who by far have giv­en me more refer­alls than any­one else on earth! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

I did­n’t realise how fun­ny Chris was!
This is a fun­ny guy right here but he’s also a super nice per­son too! He had me gig­gling like a school girl!
Vic­to­ria.… Well I think she just tries to tol­er­ates it, and humors him with a lit­tle laugh every now and then, hop­ing that he does­n’t notice the sigh and roll of the eyes!

We had loads of fun shoot­ing at Ash­ton Court which I know quite well as I’ve done allot of fam­i­ly shoots for a com­pa­ny I’ve done free­lanc­ing for.
It’s a beau­ti­ful estate full of ancient trees and amaz­ing architecture.

On these shoots, I get the kids to climb inside big hol­low trees and climb up them too.
Try­ing to remem­ber that Chris and Vic­to­ria are no longer small peo­ple I made no sug­ges­tion that they should climb up any.…oh wait, they’re already up a tree!

Chris and Vic­to­ria are get­ting mar­ried next year so i’m real­ly look­ing for­ward to shoot­ing their wed­ding! It sounds like they’ve got loads of lit­tle treats up their sleeves!

Enjoy these pic­tures and remem­ber to keep an eye out for their wed­ding in March.

Ash­ton Court is very famous for its annu­al Bris­tol Bal­lon Fes­ti­val, but when I saw a hot air bal­loon peek over that wall^ Chris thought I was on drugs.

    Great series of images. Love the blur on the last one. Tilt&Shift or post production?

    Awe­some pics! I am one of the brides­maids and you could say the Cil­la Black behind these two get­ting togeth­er so nat­u­ral­ly I think they look great as a cou­ple any­way. Think you have done a wicked job and I ook for­ward to meet­ing you in March.

    Awe­some pics guys!!! Love the bot­tom one and the one of you both sat in the long grass the most. Oh, and Chris’s ‘blue steel’ pose..legendary!

    Love the pic’s! Real­ly good qual­i­ty pho­tographs. I am Vic­to­ri­a’s moth­er and look for­ward to meet­ing you on the wed­ding day in March

    Jospeh…thaks so much for shoot­ing us, the results are real­ly impres­sive. Vic always looks beau­ti­ful, but fair play on work­ing the mag­ic on me too! (the cam­era NEVER lies, yes?) We agree, the long grass one is great. We can’t wait to look at the wed­ding pho­tos, hope­ful­ly on a beach some­where with a cock­tail in hand! By the way (Ross), the “Blue Steel” look does­nt come easy, it takes prac­tice, and then more practice.
