Last week we met up with Pip and Chis to create their Old Harry Rocks engagement photographs. We previously got together in Wareham to talk over their big plans for a wedding day at Harman’s cross village hall. They decided that organising Old Harry Rocks engagement photographs would not only provide them with some lovely images but help dispel any nerves they had about having their photographs taken.
Studland, Dorset Woodland Engagement Photographs
On a sunny summer’s Wednesday afternoon we travelled barely a minute down the road from our office to the Bankes Arms in Studland. We found ourselves heading off along the south west coastal path to nearby garlic woods.
Whenever we meet Pip and Christopher they always seem to be in such a great mood, today was no different. In the summer sun shine they couldn’t keep their hands of each other, merrily walking along hand in hand. We aren’t sure if we have seen an engaged couple laugh and kiss quite as much as these two love birds at their Old Harry Rocks engagement photographs.
We wound through the dense woodland, emerging onto the field overlooking Bournemouth’s coast line. Of course we had to pause at the kissing gate on the edge of the woods as Pip and Christopher carried out a romantic tradition. Yet more kissing!
Engagement Photographs At Old Harry Rocks
High up on Ballard Down the epic vista warranted a panoramic photograph. Christopher then revealed that this idyllic field of yellow flowers was the exact location of his marriage proposal! Romance levels had hit maximum.
Walking nearer the edge of the coast the white of the chalk cliffs contrasted the deep blue sea below. We dodged the many tourists, capturing the lovely couple together from both near and far. Nearing the cliff edge would not help anyone with a fear of heights. But this was the perfect location for these Old Harry Rocks engagement photographs.
Throughout the shoot, the guys relaxed into the swing of having their photographs taken. The perfect preparation for their wedding day. We meandered back down the hill to the car park, parting in the still shining sun. The next time we see them we know they will yet again be in a good mood, on their wedding morning.
