It's always a pleasure to get to know couples a few weeks or months before their big day on an engagement or pre-wedding shoot. Not only does it help us get to know each other before the wedding - but it also gets them used to being in front of the camera. As it happens, I knew Andy and Gen before so it was such a joy to get to photograph them shortly after they got engaged.
I've found that engagement photography is such a great bonus for couples because, as I mentioned, it gets them used to being in front of the camera - but more than that - it gives them some perfect, more casual photos, to go alongside their formal looks on the Big Day.
It was such a lovely late-afternoon stroll through Bramber Castle ruins and around the grounds in Steyning. Thanks for the opportunity to do this pre-wedding shoot, guys and I absolutely cannot wait to get your wedding photography to complete the set at your highly-anticipated wedding next week.
As one of Field Place's recommended photographers, I was overjoyed to hear that the venue was the national winner at the 2020 Wedding Industry Awards. It's such an incredible privilege to photograph weddings at this gorgeous venue. The lovely staff and breath-taking scenery all contribute to so many of my favourite Big Day's to have photographed here.
It's an honour to have also been used in the advertising materials and promotional adverts that are being used to promote such a prestigious and award-winning venue. I can highly recommend it as a fantastic venue for weddings on the South Coast. It's no surprise it won the 2020 Wedding Industry Award as best in the country.
Here are some of the highlights from weddings I have been a part of, that were hosted at Field Place.
It's always a joy to get to capture family moments - and that's especially true with the arrival of a newborn. So it was such a lovely experience to photograph Dan and Sam both before and after the arrival of their gorgeous newborn baby girl.
Telling both sides of the story, and both shoots taking place at Warren Hill, just a few weeks apart - it was amazing to see how much of a life-changing experience a newborn baby can bring to a family. The two shoots, when put together, told the perfect story of progression from a couple of two - to a family of three.
I was so excited to capture the story amongst an atmosphere of a lush autumnal forest, surrounding such a precious and gorgeous family. Thank-you Dan and Sam for letting me capture those moments with you.
