Newquay engagement shoot – Ben & Morwenna
I met Ben & Morwenna for their Newquay engagement shoot at Fistral beach on a beautiful sunny day which made a change from the horrible storms we’ve been having these last few months.
This location worked perfectly as it’s a stone’s throw from their chosen wedding venue, The Atlantic Hotel and Ben & Morwenna were keen to get some beach photographs on their wedding day.
Fistral Beach is one of the most popular beaches in the UK and is best known for its surf and golden sand. The beach is situated between Towan Head and Pentire Point, meaning that from the Headland Hotel or the Atlantic Hotel there are stunning sea view across the Atlantic.
We started the session, talking about the wedding day and the kind of photographs Ben & Morwenna would like. The way I photograph engagement sessions is to put the couple in a place with an attractive background, good light on the faces, and then let the couple be themselves.
I love the series of photographs of them both sitting talking to each other with the sand dune as the backdrop. The colour of the sand, Morwenna’s hair, and her mint jumper, I think works perfectly.
We used the time well, and moved to a few different locations that would bring us back to the car park for everyone to enjoy an ice cream. :-)
As usual here is a selection of some of my favorites from Ben & Morwenna’s Newquay Engagement shoot. Please feel free to share on social media, or leave a comment.
