My Favourite Time of Year
As Autumn draws in, and there is a beautiful crisp chill in the air, I take some deep breaths and breathe in my favourite season! For me, Autumn brings happiness. A fresh start, the season of something new. Perhaps it is memories of starting school and freshly sharpened pencils, a new term and new teachers. New beginnings. Now it is my wedding season drawing to a close. The mountain of editing subsiding, and making plans for my family break with my two favourite boys at our favourite cottage on the Dorset coast.
Autumn is also a wonderful time for engagement shoots. The leaves start to change colour and a fresh carpet of crunchy autumn loveliness covers the ground. There is a gorgeous chill in the air, which makes cuddling all the more comforting. And the light! Oh my, the light is wonderful.
Then winter is around the corner, and the trees become something else. Again, the light is wonderful in early evening as the sun falls low in the sky. Another special time for engagement shoots. Get your coats on, wrap up warm and come for a stroll with me and my camera. All you 2017 wedding couples that are booked in. Get your diaries out, and lets pencil it in!
Below are a selection of some of my Autumn-Winter engagement shoots. Actually, technically speaking I think Emily and Martin’s was in March. But the other two were October and November. In fact, Sam and Jake (at the bottom of the post) joined me at my cottage in Dorset for a shoot on the coastline on a very wet and blustery day. It was so much fun!
