Sophie and Ben’s Shoeburyness Engagement Shoot

Shoeburyness Engagement Shoot

Technically speaking this was not actually an engagement shoot as we shot it after the wedding, the couple were so busy on the run-up to their wedding that they couldn’t fit it in but I wanted to make sure they got the shoot so we planned it in a month or so after they got married.

Coastal Essex Engagement Shoot Locations

Shoeburyness Beach was actually a new location for me, Sophie and Ben had requested it and it’s always nice to shoot somewhere new so I was looking forward to seeing what we could capture. If you are looking for a coastal location for an engagement shoot its a really good choice, the weather was quite grey and overcast on the day so I brought in a bit of off-camera flash to give the images a bit of pop. I thought these conditions would look good in black and white so kept that in mind when choosing some of the locations for images.

Essex Wedding Photographer

I know I say it a lot but as an Essex Wedding Photographer we really are lucky to live in such a scenic county, we have some amazing locations throughout the county which allows for a real abundance of choice when selecting a location for your Essex engagement shoot. Sophie and Ben’s Shoeburyness Engagement Shoot location choice worked really well and I’ll be adding it to the list of suggestions I give to my couples.

Engagement Shoots

Engagement shoots are a great way to get some professional photographs while at the same time getting used to being photographed which helps alleviates any nerves before the big day. I currently include them as standard with my full day wedding collection as they are a lot of fun to shoot and the feedback from my couples is that they are very beneficial.
