Christ Church Meadow, Oxford | Engagement shoot.

Christ Church Meadow, Oxford | Engagement shoot.

Sarah and Ali are due to get married at the very lovely Lains Barn in Oxfordshire later this year. I first made contact with them both via Skype as it wasnt possible to meet in person, so it was exciting to meet with them in person at the very lovely Christ Church meadows on a gloriously sunny day! As well as taking in the lovely views along the river we also took a slight detour and captured a few photographs down by the Oxford University boats houses. Finishing up with a coffee and a chat in the Queen’s Lane Coffee house.

If you are the shy type and not particularly comfortable in front of the camera then an engagement shoot is perfect for helping to calm any anxiety before the day. I make the shoot as relaxed as possible and direct any shots as much as necessary, and even crack the odd joke (not necessarily funny) or make a fool of myself (more funny) to raise a bit of a natural smile from you both. And once all this is over I’ll treat you to a coffee at one of my favourite coffee houses :)

I love doing engagement shoots around Oxford city centre. The architecture is superb and the opportunities for create backdrops and lighting are in abundance! We also took a walk to the Jericho area of Oxford to steal a few images outside the Rickety Press where Louise and David first met.
