Swanage Beach Engagement Photographs

Before embarking for Rich and Lou’s Swanage beach engagement photographs we popped into see them at home to talk through their wedding day plans.

Dorset Wedding Planning with Photographers

Tucked away in the Corfe countryside Rich and Lou’s countryside cottage is a wonderful sight to behold. Surrounded with bright flowers, plants and the sounds of nature they excitedly told us of their dream wedding at St Edwards Church in Corfe and at Rollington Barn. Both of which we know well, as Rollington Barn is one of our favourite venues at Purbeck Arts Week.

We couldn’t help ourselves, we had to take some engagement photographs of the happy couple at home in their garden. Where else is a couple going to be more relaxed than in their own gorgeous garden.Engagement photographs couple laughing in cottage garden Engagement photographs with rusty shed roofIt helped that we got on like a house on fire. Rich and Lou are such a fun-loving couple who share our passions for travel, surfing and the great outdoors. They even seemed to understand my obsession with rusty, textured surfaces such as that of their shed roof!

As time flowed too freely we decided to head to the sea for their Swanage beach engagement photographs. Bunson their lovely dog agreed.swanage beach engagement photographs with dog swanage beach engagement photographs panoramicThere are many different techniques we employ to aid a couple relax during their first time in front of the camera. With Rich and Lou the distraction of Bunson and his stick was enough to focus on something other than the camera.swanage beach engagement photographs dog on the beach swanage beach engagement photographs reflection swanage beach engagement photographs looking out to seaAfter a dip in the sea Rich and Lou were happy kissing and cuddling on the shore line. Bunson was happy to keep running up and down in search of the now elusive stick.swanage beach engagement photographs kissing by the sea swanage beach engagement photographs couple swanage beach engagement photographs dogRich and Lou requested that we climb up Whitecliff, the hill behind our offices. It provides spectacular views across Swanage bay.

Up on Nine Barrow Down the view doubled to include Poole harbour in the other direction. We stopped by a signpost for some more engagement photographs of the happy couple.groom and dog with sign post ovelooking poole harbour Engagement photographs couple with bridal path sign Countryside engagement photographs couple with dog and seaThe curve of the peak provided a false perspective, giving the images a ‘curve of the earth feel’.
