Inspiration

Durdle Door Bay was where Olly & Heidi got engaged, so naturally, it was the best spot for their engagement photos. They stood overlooking the coast with their puppy Rosie, before paddling in the sea on the beach. They trekked to the highest point, overlooking the Jurassic coastline and Durdle Door itself. We think you will agree, it was absolutely stunning.


Durdle Door Bay engagement Shoot inspiration. One of Dorset's most photographed and iconic landmarks.

We revisited Durdle Door to capture our engagement photos in the exact spot of the proposal. Every step of the way Grace encouraged us to enjoy the moment. She captured beautifully natural shots whilst we explored the cliff-top footpaths that overlook the channel.

Olly & Heidi

Olly, Heidi and Rosie the spaniel met me at Durdle Door. The couple walked me along the route Olly took when he was about to ask Heidi to marry him, and we got to photographing! The weather was so changeable that day, we had glorious skies, then clouds rolled in, and then sunny skies again, but I loved it! High up on the cliffs it was so windy, and I was just living for the atmosphere it was creating whilst I was shooting! After our walk along the cliffs, we made the descent to Durdle Door itself, which is so impressive! If you haven’t been to this area in Dorset before, I urge you to check it out! we got the most wonderful photos! Of course, I made sure to get their spaniel Rosie in the photos too, and I think she enjoyed being the center of attention!

The perfect backdrop for Olly to drop to one knee and pop the question and fun to revisit for the engagement photoshoot.

Our engagement shoot was so much fun and the stunning photos speak for themselves. Grace is amazing! It's just like a day out with one of your best friends…
