PORTUGAL PRE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Rob, those photos are just incredible! 😁❤️ my god I’m a model!!! 😂😂 we are soooo pleased!!!

I love engagement photography. It’s an amazing way to get to know each other before the wedding day, have some pre-wedding fun and for a couple to get comfortable in front of the camera. Lee had been a bit nervous about the shoot but as you’ll see below, he did just fine! Jordan, on the other hand is not exactly the shy and retiring type!

This shoot was extra special as the beach was the same beach where Lee and Jordan got engaged, it was perfect! I also got to join Jordan, Lee, their friends and family for a pre-wedding meal, looking out on the beach, after our shoot. The very next day, I was there to capture their wedding.

It was an amazing beach engagement session in Praia da Oura, in the Algarve. Their love, their outlook on life and their energy are infectious and this made the shoot so easy. They have a chemistry that I can’t put into words, a true bond but if you know them, you’ll know precisely what I mean!

With the weather forecast for the wedding day looking less than ideal, I wanted to make the most of the good weather while we had it and, so we spent a beautiful evening wandering the beach and around the hotel grounds. I like to do as little posing as possible on these shoots, offering a little direction here and there, otherwise it’s really just about capturing some smiles, some laughter and a little of that chemistry they got going on. I might love these two a little bit – enjoy!
