Preview photographs from Jonathan & Georgina's wedding in East Sussex. A church ceremony at St Mary's Church in Warbleton and the wedding reception at Michelham Priory. This beautiful field backed onto the church grounds, where we stopped for a couple of shots just after the ceremony, before heading out of the church with some obligatory confetti!

We then left the church and stopped off at the Bride's parents house for a quick photo by the lake on our way to Michelham Priory in a 1947 Bentley.

Finally, towards the end of the day, when the light started to get really good, we found a small wildflower garden with some beautiful backlighting from the sunshine.  0009_Preview_Jonathan_&_Georgina_Wedding_Michelham_Priory_East_Sussex0009_Preview_Jonathan_&_Georgina_Wedding_Michelham_Priory_East_SussexMichelham Priory Wedding, Jonathan & Georgia, East Sussex

The buttercups in the field were in full bloom giving a warm tone to the long grass of the meadow.

One year on, and the crop rotation has changed so that this year, the sweeping landscape of Sussex and the South Downs is complemented by the rape crop in these photographs. I love Sussex Weddings, and photographing at Fitzleroi barn again was such a pleasure!

My techniques for engagement photo shoots http://www.pbweddingphotography.com/blog/2018/3/my-techniques-for-engagement-photo-shoots 0059_Aaron_&_Vicky_Engagement_Shoot_Stanmer_Park_Ditchling_Beacon_Sussex0059_Aaron_&_Vicky_Engagement_Shoot_Stanmer_Park_Ditchling_Beacon_SussexAaron & Vicky Engagement Photo Shoot, Stanmer Park & Ditchling Beacon, Brighton, Sussex Here are a few tips on how I get great engagement photos when shooting couples on various engagement photoshoots in Sussex. These ideas will help other wedding photographers with tips on how to shoot the engagement photos but also help couples understand the process of how to get great engagement photos.

The Warm-up Exercise

0014_Rob_&_Harriet_Engagement_Shoot_Goring_Beach_Worthing_Sussex0014_Rob_&_Harriet_Engagement_Shoot_Goring_Beach_Worthing_SussexRob & Harriet Engagement Photo Shoot, Goring Beach, Worthing, Sussex

When I start the photo shoot, I will begin by just asking the couple to walk in a reasonably beautiful location that has some form of interesting background, and ask them to walk towards and away from me just to get them warmed up. This process isn’t necessarily for good photographs but more for the sole purpose of getting used to posing and interacting together in front of the camera. I usually find that the first photographs that I take aren’t very interesting; the aim of these first few minutes is to relax the couple in front of the camera.

 

Posing

0029_Paul_&_Sophie_Engagement_Shoot_Greenwich_Park_London0029_Paul_&_Sophie_Engagement_Shoot_Greenwich_Park_LondonPaul & Sophie Engagement Shoot, Greenwich Park, London

When scoping out opportunities for good photographs, I look for a location that I feel will look interesting as a background (shot using a shallow depth of field). I will simply ask a couple to stand in the location and I ask them to just look at each other to begin with, not at the camera. This strategy is designed to get them to start interacting together and I photograph them from a considerable distance away, using a telephoto lens. By doing this I hope that and they will start to forget that they are being photographed by me, as I have moved quite far away from them. Also having them look at each other can usually provoke them into interacting physically to show intimacy, which looks great on camera but also I tend to find that couples can start to giggle at this point at how unusual it feels to be photographed professionally.

0017_Rob_&_Naomi_Engagement_Shoot_Greenwich_Park_London0017_Rob_&_Naomi_Engagement_Shoot_Greenwich_Park_London

I’ll sometimes ask them to look at me, asking them to pose in some way, and occasionally directing then in terms of how are they stand together, but the majority of photographs are genuinely natural, where the couple look at each other and now feel quite relaxed in front of the camera.

 

Lighting & Composition

0018_Aaron_&_Vicky_Engagement_Shoot_Stanmer_Park_Ditchling_Beacon_Sussex0018_Aaron_&_Vicky_Engagement_Shoot_Stanmer_Park_Ditchling_Beacon_SussexAaron & Vicky Engagement Photo Shoot, Stanmer Park & Ditchling Beacon, Brighton, Sussex

I am always looking for visual ways to separate the subject from the background - one composition technique that I can find works is called” figure to ground” - and one of the best ways of doing this is through a mixture of lighting and composition. Using either a light or a dark background can produce a contrast that is aesthetically pleasing, creating silhouettes or high key imagery but neutral backgrounds are also useful because they will not distract from the main subject in the photograph.

0019_Rob_&_Harriet_Engagement_Shoot_Goring_Beach_Worthing_Sussex0019_Rob_&_Harriet_Engagement_Shoot_Goring_Beach_Worthing_SussexRob & Harriet Engagement Photo Shoot, Goring Beach, Worthing, Sussex

Personally, I always tend to prefer using some degree of backlighting as I enjoy the glow from the light falling on the subject from behind and the atmosphere that this creates in the picture. I particularly find it flattering on female subjects because it can highlight the colour and length of their hair quite beautifully.

 

There is something to be said for flat lighting, usually created either by shade or clouds in the sky. I also look for natural reflectors such as lightly coloured ground, to help soften the hard lighting from strong sunlight. Soft lighting is usually quite flattering and doesn’t create any hard shadows on the subjects face.

0124_Rob_&_Naomi_Engagement_Shoot_Greenwich_Park_London0124_Rob_&_Naomi_Engagement_Shoot_Greenwich_Park_London

Aside from the background, I usually look for something in the photograph to create a sense of narrative or to help my subject feel more comfortable in front of the camera. Footpaths are great because the couple can walk away and towards me as I mentioned earlier but they also act as a compositional tool to lead your eye into the photograph. I also use walls and fences as composition all leading lines.

 

Another great photographic tool are trees or walls that the subject can lean against. I have found that by asking the male to lean their back against something and then asking a female to lean into the male creates a natural and relaxed intimacy.

 

Location

I always suggest to couples that the location of a shoot should be somewhere that is personal to them. The photo shoot, although an activity in itself and something that I think most of my couples quite enjoy in the end, I want the shoots to look like a nice day out, perhaps a romantic date spent in their favourite place. I think the ideal outcome of a photo shoot is a couple of hours spent in each other’s company where the photographs show what a great time often they share in this location.

My second photographer, Gosia, also worked with me to capture the Groom, Chirs, getting ready at the Eight Bells pub just opposite the church. Chris wore his military uniform for the ceremony before changing into a morning suit for the reception. The wedding guests arrived at the pub beforehand, whilst the best man tweaked his speech over a pint.

A few shots of Alice, the Bride, getting into her dress and off we went to the church, riding in style in this stunning 1934 Royal Blue Wolseley County Saloon. The wedding ceremony was heartwarming and the Bride's brother sang a rendition of Ave Maria whilst they signed the register.

A bit of confetti, or rather a LOT of confetti, and we took the wedding car to Staplefield village green for some photos in the countryside, just near the reception venue.

Alice loves tea, so the wedding favours were little test tubes of different tea varieties and the tables were laid along a tea theme, with teapots holding flowers and teacups with candles inside.

It rained for a little when we first arrived so we shot some group photographs indoors before the sun came out to give us some beautiful light over the grounds of Slaugham Place for some more portraits of the Bride & Groom.

We caught a few photos in Golden Hour light, where the sun gets low in the sky and all the ruins of Slaugham and leave on the trees glow as light illuminates their edges.

Then finally, some speeches, a few 'toasts', a Photo-booth and some dancing with a ceilidh band! We also went out for a final shot amongst the ruins as a mist set in and we set up some flashes around the bride and groom to illuminate everything in this beautiful atmosphere.

The wedding had a vintage/country floral theme, with blush pinks, powder blues and ivory colours. Sam had two best men, each holding the rings above, which were presented in these beautiful cases. A white London cab picked Laura up from they home in Brighton and when we arrived, an acoustic guitarist played whilst Laura walked down the aisle.

It was moments after this photo, that the heavens opened and we got some great photos in the rain! We had to do our group photos under the canopy of an open barn, with vintage, lace bunting decorating the background.

The reception was decorated with gypsophila in tall lily vases and roses in other vintage glasses. The wedding favours were small sticks of Brighton rock, a homage to their hometown, and the wedding cake was a three-tiered naked sponge cake that was decorated with fresh flowers and a wooden cut-out of their names was placed on top.

A flurry hit the south-western area of London in time for us to get a couple of snaps before it subsided again only an hour later!

Argh, probably for the best though as we needed to get to the reception venue at the Bingham Hotel. The gardens of the hotel overlook the River Thames and I love using my Sigma 24-35 fast lens to capture shots like this.

A few shots from yesterday's wedding at Pangdean Barn in Pyecombe, just outside Brighton. The barn is right in the heart of the South Downs and there's a small chalk track that we drove up onto in the evening to get the shot above at Golden Hour.

The apples add a nice feature for photographic composition and an additional splash of colour.

They speckle this photo as small blobs of light to give it a magical atmosphere.

A full CTO lighting gel on one flash helped balance the colours. Using flash allowed me to keep the colour and exposure in the sky and to use the light from the sun as a key light for some drama in this photo and the one at the top of this post.

A few photos from Chris & Alice's wedding at St Mary Magdalene's Church in Bolney and Slaugham Place, both in West Sussex. After the church service, we stopped off at Staplefield for a couple of photos with the 1934 Wolseley 21/60 County Saloon they had hired for the day.

After an initial summer shower of rain, it brightened up for us to take advantage of the breath-taking ruins of Slaugham Place and the bridge over the moat.

This shot was taken right at the end of the moat using a long focal length, 200mm, to maximise the reflections and light to produce these great colours. 0008_Preview_Chris_&_Alice_Wedding_Slaugham_Place_West_Sussex0008_Preview_Chris_&_Alice_Wedding_Slaugham_Place_West_SussexChris & Alice Wedding, Slaugham Place, Sussex

We didn't quite catch a full golden hour as the sun would have disappeared behind the tall trees in the west, so we started shooting a couple of portraits in evening light by the arches. 0011_Preview_Chris_&_Alice_Wedding_Slaugham_Place_West_Sussex0011_Preview_Chris_&_Alice_Wedding_Slaugham_Place_West_SussexChris & Alice Wedding, Slaugham Place, Sussex

Finally, Gosia (My assistant) and I, had a play around with some flashes at night with the arches, placing a flash behind Chris & Alice and a flash either side of the ruins. A light fog had started rolling in to create this misty atmosphere! 0013_Preview_Chris_&_Alice_Wedding_Slaugham_Place_West_Sussex0013_Preview_Chris_&_Alice_Wedding_Slaugham_Place_West_SussexChris & Alice Wedding, Slaugham Place, Sussex

The weather was pretty wet, with light drizzle to heavy showers from afternoon to evening. It was hard work, but we got some great shots in spite of the rain, and it was really interesting to work with. This shot uses the classic technique of backlighting to illuminate the rain.

Rain provides a great texture to the images, defining a wonderful ambience of frozen droplets in the air, like a still snowy morning.

The light was beautiful coming through the leafy trees and there were hops decorating the archway that Naomi & Rob got married under. There was also a beautiful pond and summer house just ahead, it was a truly stunning setting for a ceremony and so beautifully peaceful.

The light was quite flat, so I tried out a couple of different techniques to use the landscape to my advantage. This shot involved being much closer than I usually shoot and photographing using a soft depth of field and a wide lens.

Using long grass and this gate (below) added another element of interest as well as the large tree in the background.  0006_Preview_Christopher_&_Julia_Wedding_House_on_the_Brooks_Hardham_West_Sussex0006_Preview_Christopher_&_Julia_Wedding_House_on_the_Brooks_Hardham_West_SussexChristopher & Julia Wedding, House on the Brooks, Hardham, West Sussex

Just towards the end of golden hour, the sun poked through the clouds to give us a nice sunset to enjoy for a whole 2 minutes. This was probably the only good shot I got before it disappeared again (though I haven't checked all the images yet). When looking for light, you have to be really quick and it can change so quickly (even on calm, cloudy days)!

Using an off camera flash and white umbrella to expose Chris & Julia, I underexposed the sky heavily and pushed it a little bit in Lightroom to emphasise those subtle colours in the sky.

The Lambretta moped is owned by the Father of the Bride and featured in a few photos just after the ceremony, before we set off around the farm fields for some more countryside photographs.

I liked this photo as I hadn't shot the field and country lane in this way before. I'd refrained from shooting this with previous couples as it didn't interest me as much as some of the other locations but I think the leading line of the country lane works well.

I just can't get enough of long summer grass as an element of interest in summer wedding photography.

We couldn't quite catch the sun before it went down for some golden hour pictures, but instead we used the colours in the sky and a couple of flashes for this sunset picture.

The décor was quite classic, lots of flowers / candles / fairy lights and a stunning 5ft laminated LOVE sign. They had also supplied wedding favours of mini limoncello bottles and there were two wedding cakes: one 4 tier white/silver/grey, bold and ruffles & another 5 tier cheese cake decorated with green flowers.

There were lots of evening antics in the Photo-booth, which you can check out here and some great music from the live band (even the Groom got a turn with the microphone!) to inspire some eclectic dancing! We also had a bit of fun playing with the lighting around the pond and fountain in the garden after dark.
