Natasha + Hanks Indie Inspired Engagement Shoot Wed, 06 Jul 2011 05:00:35 +0000

Todays offering is by the uber talented Nikita Gross Photography who submitted to me via Two Bright Lights. I’ve been sitting on these images for a couple of weeks now, itching to get them published on the blog – they are uh-mazing! Not only does this session have the most fantastic back story {I love it when there’s a reason for having an E-shoot in a particular place, so personal} but the photography is to-die-for. Check out the incredible way Nikita has captured this super cute couple…

Here’s what Nikita had to say – “Natasha and Hank met at a Turbling concert at the Southgate House in Newport KY. They continued to go there for Indie shows.

They wanted to take their engagement photos their since it has been so significant in their relationship. The Southgate House is a historic house turned music venue built during the war of 1812. Some photos were also taken at the Cincinnati Public Library.”

Oh I love, love – how’s about you? The lighting is beautiful – thanks so much for sharing Nikita.

With Love, Boho Bride xx

Stunning Seaside Engagement Shoot to Warm The Cockles of your Heart Mon, 31 Jan 2011 06:30:24 +0000

It’s freeezing down here in Devon and although I love our beautiful beaches…I’m so happy to tucked up in our snug little cottage! With our stunning shores in mind, I thought I’d warm your cockles with this dreamy seaside engagement shoot, captured by the oh-so-lovely Norfolk  based photographer Katherine Ashdown. Here’s what Kathy had to say…

“This has to be one of my fave E shoots of the summer, gorgeous, fun couple – so obviously in love, woodland, beach, beach huts, blue skies, surf…and ice cream, perfect!

Louise and Chris decided to go to the beautiful Wells Beach to mirror the location Chris proposed (if slightly cooler)… Barbados! We had a fantastic time wandering on the beach on a stunning summers day, with every possible colour beach hut as the backdrop! Then we finished the shoot with the only possible way of finishing a beach shoot…with ice creams!”

I just love the natural styling of this shoot – simple and beautiful…and such a gorgeous couple too! Thanks so much for sharing Kathy xx

Victoria and Nat’s Norfolk Coast Engagement Shoot Thu, 25 Nov 2010 07:00:04 +0000

It was a real treat to see this gorgeous engagment shoot pop up in my inbox the other day. The rain was torrential outside and yet, when I first glanced at these pictures I was immediately immersed in the beautiful surrounding of the Norfolk Coast.

I adore the way that Johanna Garlike of Summer Love Photography has captured the light. It makes me feel really calm, like she’s bottled up the essence of the coast on a crisp, wintry day. And what a beautiful couple…

“This is my first year of wedding photography after 3 years of location and portraits and i am falling in love with weddings more and more each time ive been lucky enough to photograph a couples happy and wonderful day!

I had completed lots of ‘couple’ portraits over the last few years but this was my first ‘official’ engagement shoot – i was sooo excited and especially so as they had requested for it to be at Hunstanton on the Norfolk Coast. One of my favourite places and a place i have been going to since a child on family day trips! Turns out it was also somewhere that Victoria and Nat came to both as children and now also as a couple.

Victoria and Nat currently live in Bedford but spend alot of time in Hunstanton and love its seaside charm. We all spoke passionatly about the vast beach, the beach huts, the sand dunes, the beautiful orange cliffs and finding starfish and crabs in the rock pools!

The original day to take the photographs – the weather was not on our side – torrential rain, grey clouds and freezing cold – luckily we all had the space to put it off until the next day and wow! what a good move – it was a beautiful October day, lovely blue skies, warm sunshine and a nice feel to the day.

Taking photographs of Victoria and Nat was a dream – it was so clear how much they adored each other – subtle little looks, holding hands, Nat brushing Victoria’s hair out of her eyes, smiles and sneaky kisses and cuddles! Sometimes it felt as though i was imposing on their own moments and that’s what I’ve aimed to capture with their engagement portrait.

Victoria & Nat are tying the knot in Lapland with close family and then plan to celebrate their wedding with their friends and family here in the UK - I am really looking forward and feel honoured to share and photograph their winter wedding celebrations in Bedford at the Swan Hotel - Fingers crossed for the white stuff!”
