Beach Engagement Photographs in Studland with Amanda & Mike

I first met Mike and Amanda and as I meet many of our clients, at another wedding! You may remember Mike as one of the groomsmen and Amanda as ‘the lady in red’ (!) from Alex and James’ Sopley Mill wedding photographs. As they had already witnessed how we work at a wedding and seen the beautiful documentary wedding photography we produce we were keen to impress with some beach engagement photographs in Studland, Dorset.
We met in the sun drenched garden of the Bankes Arms overlooking the azure sea with Harry’s Rocks in the background and talked of their fantastic wedding plans.

The choice of the small Purbeck stone St Nicholas’ Church followed by the grandeur and views of Studland Bay House wedding venue had us very excited for their wedding in October this year.

Photographs on a Dorset Beach

I know from experience that Amanda and Mike are both fabulous in front of the camera so we walked down to Middle Beach. Away from the weekend crowds we used the yellow and red sandstone as an unusual backdrop for some beach engagement photographs.

After a stroll up and down the shoreline headed down to the National Trust’s famous Studland beach.

The wooden boardwalk across the salt marsh also provided a cracking location for some beach engagement photographs of the fun-loving couple. There are very few places in the UK where you can stroll from this type of nature reserve environment through large white sand dunes onto a beautiful beach. We are truly blessed to be able to live and create beach engagement photographs in this part of the world.

In the dunes we suggested one of our famous ‘clone the bride’ shots, which Mike quickly turned into a ‘clone the groom’ shot! Climbing and running down sand dunes is a fair sign that a couple are relaxed in front of the camera and in the full sun we captured some beautiful beach engagement photographs of the pair.

An old red phone box is not often seen amongst sand dunes in many beach engagement photographs. Mike soon made the mistake of going inside, only to be locked in by his fiancé!

We can’t wait to see Mike and Amanda again for their big day in Studland. You can see their Studland Bay House Wedding Photographs here
