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;

I don't really remember the last time I used my [impossible to use] lensbaby! Interesting and controversial results...

I love how the light from Jasmines face is reflecting onto Luke's.

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! =)
