Engagement: Kathrine and Lewis

I've been really looking forward to photographing Kathrine and Lewis for their engagement. We have had quite a wait as Lewis has been at sea for about the last six months!

We met up at Foster Gardens on a lovely sunny afternoon. Too sunny in fact, so the first job was to find some nice shady areas to work in. A bench under the trees was perfect as it also allowed them to relax and get used to being photographed.

It didn't take long before we were getting some lovely photos of them together.

Next we headed over to the pergolas. I think the stone supports make for an interesting background without being distracting. For these close-up shots I decided to use a minimal depth of field to really focus on either Lewis or Kathrine.

Then I had to increate the depth for this shot of the two of them, but not so much that the background became distracting.

The pond was in direct sunlight, so I decided to have Kathrine and Lewis sit at the edge with their backs to the sun so they were not squinting too badly.

We finished up with a splash of colour from the flower beds.

Really looking forward to the wedding, which is just about a month away now. I'm sure it will be a great day.

More soon!
