Hengistbury Head Engagement Shoot

I absolutely loved this Hengistbury Head Engagement Shoot! Jess & Ben are lovely friends of mine so when they asked me to photograph their wedding I was thrilled. I know Jess is going to make such a stunning bride and Ben is a military man so will be looking super handsome in his finery.
For their shoot we took a walk to one of my favourite locations, Hengistbury Head which offers a lovely variety of woodland, cliffs and beach. I always think an engagement shoot is a really good way for a couple to get used to being in front of the camera and get to know me and the way I work. It didn’t take long for Jess and Ben to start giggling their heads off and sharing such sweet tender moments, they are so clearly madly in love and I can’t wait to photograph their wedding next month.
Oh and another thing, Ben proposed to Jess just before they jumped out of a plane to do a skydive, how awesome is that! Definitely one of the most original ways to pop the question!

Of course, this Hengistbury Head Engagement Shoot was the perfect chance to shoot some medium format film, thank you to Carmencita Film Lab for the brilliant scans! And for any fellow film lovers, this was shot on my Mamiya 645 using fui400h 🙂
