South Downs Engagement Shoot

“The photos look amazing, we love them! Thank you!  Thank you so much for taking the time to come round the other evening, I feel really confident you are the perfect photographer for us”!

Engagement Photoshoot on the South Downs

I love it when a couple decides to book me for their wedding photography after their engagement shoot!  I met Catherine and Pip via one of my FB promos where they were keen to have a fun engagement shoot along with Catherine’s beautiful horse Christina and their gorgeous pooch Willow.  All to take place at Christina’s stables on the South Downs.  I didn’t need any persuading – an engagement photo shoot with a lovely couple, plus horse plus dog plus beautiful vistas of the South Downs!  I was in!  Being a big-time dog lover it was a no brainer.  I was, however, thinking gee-gees could be a whole different ball game on an engagement shoot!

Horse and Dog on an Engagement Shoot!

Having never photographed or really been around horses much at all I was a teenie bit apprehensive.  (Horses are actually quite big when you get up close)!  I had nothing at all to worry about as Christina was lovely to photograph very friendly and very well behaved.   Catherine and Pip are an awesome couple who look so great together.

Lovely Couple

Catherine and Pip recently got engaged in the New Forest on Catherine’s birthday!  “We got engaged in the New Forest on my birthday, our dog was there to witness the moment when her dad got down on one knee”

We were so lucky with such a gorgeous beautiful early Spring morning for their engagement shoot.  If anything it was too warm for little Willow!  We met at New Farm Barn, Portslade (so close to Brighton).  Pip showed me around the farm and stables whilst Catherine did finishing touches on Christina’s mane and polished her hooves!  We then headed out to the South Downs and played in the fields for a while!  Then back to the stables for some more shots.  By then it was time to leave Christina and go for some couple only shots in the fields overlooking farm.

I can’t wait to shoot Catherine & Pip’s wedding in October!
