Surprise Marriage Proposal Engagement Shoot at Sunset

This adorable couple has completely stolen my heart this afternoon. On a beautiful day at Mayfield Lavender Field, on what bride-to-be Dima thought was a normal couples portrait session, groom-to-be Nady completely surprised his now fiance with not only a gorgeous floral installation but an off the chart adorable surprise marriage proposal too. It’s not very often this magical moment in a couples history is captured so it’s especially nice to be able to share this wonderful moment with you today.

Dirty Dancing Lake Lift Engagement Shoot {Abi & Wesley}

Like babies we’re not supposed to have favourites, but this Dirty Dancing lake lift engagement shoot by ALifeLessOrdinary Photography has definitely got to be up there with one of my all time favourite features. So innovative and so personal to this gorgeous couple, is what makes it so special. Not to mention the gorgeous colour saturation and edit of Gavin’s captures.

If there is one message that is clear from this pre wedding shoot it is to do whatever makes you happy, be that a lake lift, a stroll, or posed portraits. As your love will truly shine through and the memories will be there to treasure forever.

Annaquia & Andy

This engagement shoot couldn’t fill me with more joy. The lovely Katie Ingram Photography was able to capture the pure unadulterated love and happiness of her dear friends engagement, in what I can only describe as stunning portraits.

Heading to the Peak District and enjoying the gorgeous woodland, as well as being blessed with that breathtaking golden light. Not to mention a couple of dreams.

I’ve fallen hard for all of the bride and groom to be pictures, but the one of them on the log holds a special place in my heart, probably because it reminded me of the scene from Dirty Dancing.

Enjoy all the fabulous Friday feels lovely ones.

Dan & Michael

Would you just look at this gorgeous pair. They may not have been keen to begin with to have an engagement shoot, but the fabulous Carrie Lavers Photography won them over with her artistic style and ability to put them at ease.

The results are absolutely amazing and the love radiates from the page, just like all the gorgeous golden hour portraits captured.

Jenny & Fanis

Jenny and Fanis are just completely adorable, so stylish and their photoshoot turned into an actual wedding proposal, so I couldn’t resist sharing their beautiful images with you. I’m a sucker for a love story, especially one that takes place in the sunshine 😉 Fanis managed to surprise Jenny with the ring while they were enjoying have their photographs taken by good friends, Laura and Tommy at Lato Photography. It’s such a special moment to have captured on film. Good job Jenny was looking gorgeous in a chic black ensemble complete with floral crown.

Whether you’re having an engagement shoot or not, I think we can all enjoy the gorgeousness of Santorini and revel in Jenny and Fanis’ lovely images…let’s dive in shall we? Apologies in advance for the wanderlust and wardrobe envy viewing this post will cause!

How To Ace Your Engagement Shoot…

Engagement shoots. They tend to divide opinion and have often been subject to mockery. Having your photograph taken can be a squirm inducing experience and isn’t one we tend to enjoy. BUT, get the right photographer, and suddenly you’ve got gallery wall worthy images of you and your love. Something to truly treasure for the rest of time.

We feature engagement shoots here on RMW quite frequently as lots of the photographers we work with offer them to their couples as part of their photography package. But how do you look as effortless and loved up as the people you see here on RMW? Well listen up as I’m about to share all of their secrets…

Megan & James

Gione Da Silva

Gione Da Silva

You may know the very talented Gione Da Silva as the master of wedding videography, but he’s also rather good at stills, as these stunning images of Megan and James show. Gione has captured the light, the natural beauty of the forest and the couple’s chemistry to perfection – with no one component outdoing the rest. The ultimate balance strived for by photographers.
h
The duo look like Old Hollywood movie stars, which just adds to the drama of the images. They also happen to be getting married in just a few days time, on All Hallows Eve. We reckon they are the ideal pair to style a Halloween wedding to perfection, let’s keep our fingers crossed we get to see it! But in the mean time, here’s their gorgeously golden pre wedding shoot…

Ceri & Andrew

Ceri and Andrew are just the loveliest couple – I’m basing this purely on these gorgeous images from Irene Yap, along with Ceri’s words of course, but anyone who describes their other half as ‘the kindest man I’d ever met’ is clearly a lady who knows what’s important in life.

Irene’s work is always dreamy but there’s something extra special about these images. Whether it’s the golden late afternoon sunlight, or the loving vibe radiating from Ceri and Andrew, I don’t know, I’ll let you decide…

Andrew & Scott

When you look at wedding photography every single day, you really start to get an idea of what it takes to be an excellent photographer. And Jason Mark Harris is most definitely one of them. I always find his imagery emotive, visually stunning and very thoughtful – but somehow this gorgeous Icelandic pre-wedding shoot has managed to top everything I’ve ever seen from him before. I know – big words indeed, but it’s true. These images of Andrew and Scott truly gave me a lump in my throat and made my heart swell.

Perhaps it’s the combination of the stunning scenery, the simplicity of the shoot and the ease of presence that just radiates from the couple? Whatever it is, it takes some skill to really capture all of these things in the single click of a camera. We’ll be sharing Andrew & Scott’s wedding with you all at some point soon, but for now, let’s just revel in the beauty of these images…and celebrate the fact that these long-term lovers can now have a proper wedding day, just like the millions of lovers that have gone before them.
