Stephanie & Shay’s engagement shoot took place at Virginia Waters in Surrey. It was the perfect winters day with rich blue sky’s and crisp cold fresh air. I arrived just that little bit earlier with enough time to grab a nice hot cup of coffee whilst waiting for the couple to arrive. It wasn’t long before they joined me.

We must of spent the first hour just talking over a coffee about christmas and my New York trip “Boy what a trip” with me getting rather excited explaining the best places to go and eat! I got to be a bit of an expert after walking around New York for 4 days.

It was time to start and just outside the entrance to Virginia Waters is an amazing featured wall that we used as a backdrop before heading over to the lake. The lake was screaming to be photographed for the blues and greens bouncing full of life, just adding a bit of creative flash in to light the couple.

We then made our way into the woods, using natural light poking through the trees for a more dark mood vintage look. Stephanie & Shay were very relaxed throughout the shoot.

At the end of the shoot we sat down as I printed a mini instax print from my small printer in my bag for the couple as a keepsake from the day. I do believe it went down well as the couple were amazed!
