Essex wedding photography: garden engagement shoot


We love a garden engagement shoot, having photographs taken in surroundings that mean a lot to you just add that extra sparkle and feeling to your images.  So when Dannii and James chose a family garden for their engagement shoot I was thrilled!  These, two are such an awesome couple, there was no end of giggles and jokes as we wondered around the lovely garden setting.

Dannii and James got married at That Amazing Place in August, and we can’t wait to show you their gorgeous wedding images, but for now just sit back and take a look through some of the images from their garden engagement shoot.

A garden engagement shoot is perfect if you have cute areas to sit, beautiful backdrops such as shabby walls, luscious greenery or even wide open space where we can capture the sun setting at the end of the shoot.  Think about the seasons when planning your garden engagement shoot as it will really impact the mood and feel of your images, be it the bright full blooms of summer, soft pastels of spring blossom, the warm and rustic feel of autumnal leaves or if we’re lucky enough for snow, then the magical sparkle of winter.

Either way, we would love to hear about your ideas for an engagement shoot, and remember, if you’ve booked your wedding photography with us then our collections include a complimentary engagement shoot.  So don’t hesitate in contacting us today!

Until next time,
