Engagement Shoot! Yvonne and Matt in the New Forest

November 6th, 2009

So take a guess where Yvonne and Matt met me?
Yup, they also are friends of Deb­by and Craig from ear­li­er this year!
If good mon­ey man­age­ment were a skill of mine, good­ness me, I’d be a mil­lion­aire because of them…and also per­haps the lot­tery which I don’t play!

Matt is a pro­fes­sion­al bow­man so he ends up trav­el­ling all over the world as part of a boat rac­ing team. Yvonne also works in same indus­try so she gets to trav­el to some pret­ty incred­i­ble loca­tions some­times too.

So we met Yvonne and Matt in Mat­t’s home town of Lyming­ton. We were pret­ty late as some incon­sid­er­ate per­son decid­ed to let their van catch fire on the M4 and by the time we arrived the light was fad­ing very very fast and we were left with very lit­tle light to play with!

It was yet anoth­er shoot where I strug­gled on a tech­ni­cal lev­el, but I learnt from it, so there’s a sil­ver lin­ing behind every cloud!!
Yvonne and Matt were great com­pa­ny, and I can’t wait to shoot their wed­ding this weekend!
I’ll tell you more about them both when I blog their wed­ding pictures.
I’ll also tell you how many wed­ding rings Matt has.
I’ll give you a clue; it’s not one.

Enjoy these pic­tures, and keep an eye out for their wed­ding pic­tures pret­ty soon!

Because these two are such a darned good look­ing cou­ple, I can’t actu­al­ly show you their faces, instead, you’ll see reeds.
Ok, you twist­ed my arm! Here’s Yvonne!

…and Matt. I real­ly love these col­ors. They look so cool, yet also so warm!

These are all Mat­t’s Boats…I think
Laugh­ing so much your legs give way. It’s the only way to laugh!
Can you say “Cheese”? All the best with liv­ing this one down Matt!
We used all dif­fer­ent types of light on this shoot; shop win­dows, ambi­ent light, and off cam­era strobes.
And in this case, we end­ed up in the mid­dle of the New For­est on Hal­loween (which did­n’t scare me in the slight­est, hon­est!) Jess held up the strobe to light their faces and the leaves, whilst Matt and Yvon­ne’s car gave us some nice ambi­ent which cre­at­ed a nice warm halo around them! Cool!
Than­ks for being so much fun and hos­pitable guys! I’m real­ly look­ing for­ward to shoot­ing for you at the weekend!
