Engagement Shoot - Southsea, Portsmouth
This shoot was a great celebration of a local couple's love of where they live - Southsea is an eclectic mixture of beach-life, quirky shops and a classic seaside pier. This is a place for people who don't like to follow the grain in life and that is certainly how I would sum up the fantastic couple that are Alex and Andrea.
This outgoing couple were married at the beautiful Winchester Great Hall on New Year's Eve 2016. They (in a very non-traditional wedding photography way!) had their beautiful service before the actual engagement shoot. The pure reason for this was lack of time prior to the big day itself, however I feel the post-wedding engagement shoot truly lent itself to the laid-back photographs you see on this post.
Looking at the photographs themselves, you'd be mistaken to think they had been taken on a beautiful Summers day - surprisingly this shoot took place on a drizzly day at the beginning of March. Luckily for us, as we arrived the grey and sombre clouds cleared, leaving a beautiful blue sky and glowing sunlight.
