Photoshoot! Jasmine and Luke in Shropshire

May 27th, 2009

This is fun…Almost every time I do an engage­ment shoot, it’s bet­ter than the pre­vi­ous one!
This one just blew the oth­er engage­ment shoots out of the window…Wow!!

Jas­mine and Luke have a house in a real life toy-town called Lud­low.  They put Jess and Myself up for the night and they were the per­fect hosts.
We spent the day look­ing around antique shops [it’s just how we roll]… then we start­ed shoot­ing in late afternoon.

We walked to the very spot where Luke pro­posed to Jas­mine by carv­ing “Will You Mar­ry Me?” into a tree. Very romantic!

Per­son­al­ly, It’s not the sort of thing I would do, but only because I’d prob­a­bly spell it wrong because I’d be stress­ing over what style of typog­ra­phy to use!
She said YES of course, which was a very good move as Luke is thee gen­tle­man and they make an awe­some couple.

We were blessed with beau­ti­ful light which only got bet­ter and better.
One thing that I only noticed whilst I was edit­ing these pic­tures, is that Jas­mines skin takes to light very well.

There were allot of rape seed fields in the area which I was keen to shoot in, but we just could­n’t find one bathed in light, and that was eas­i­ly acces­si­ble, and then I spot­ted a beau­ti­ful field of bar­ley which …well, just look for your­self at the pictures;

You two! Me and Jess had such an awe­some week­end, and I think that this ^ field was the per­fect end!
Thank you Mr Farmer for let­ting us shoot in your field with­out your permission.

Remem­ber, you can have a shoot just like this one, and see­ing as I said at the begin­ning that each time I do an engage­ment shoot, it gets bet­ter and bet­ter, it might be a good idea to book one! =)
