Lyndsay & Tom’s Poole Harbour Engagement Photos

Poole Harbour engagement photographs

We met Lindsay & Tom for their Poole Harbour engagement photographs at Sandbanks Hotel wedding venue in Dorset. As we have mentioned in previous posts we recommend taking advantage of our engagement photos hoots.

Lyndsay was a natural in front of the camera, she is completely comfortable being photographed.  As we discovered during these Poole Harbour engagement photographs Tom has his reservations!

So in order to distract him a little we caught up on their wedding plans over a couple of drinks in the warm sun.

Lynndsay and Tom have chosen Stockbridge Farm Barn as their wedding venue. This is great for us as we love working at such a stunning medieval barn wedding venue. One of the major advantages of Stockbridge is the scope that is available for personalising the venue to suit the wedding. Tom and Lyndsay are taking this one step further and are actually incorporating the structure of the venue into their wedding day theme.

We can’t wait to see how the ‘wooden’ theme looks. Tom is an experienced tree surgeon so there are exciting plans afoot for handmade wooden wedding furniture and decor. The plans will work so wonderfully well with the impressive wooden structures of the medieval barn.

We rarely ‘pose’ a couple. We believe that it is impossible to capture people’s natural emotions and expressions when they are feeling uncomfortable. So the most we will ‘compose’ at a pre-wedding shoot is to ask a couple to go for a walk, sit or stand together. The rest is simply what happens when they are in this situation as you can see in these Poole Harbour engagement photographs.

So after a quick walk around the harbour shoreline overlooking Tom was obviously a lot more relaxed about the proceedings. We popped over to Sandbanks Hotel’s beach to compose one of our ‘clone the bride’ and couple photos. This fit in perfectly with Lindsay & Tom’s infectious fun loving nature.
