Ah bring back the warm sunny weather, although in short supply this year! Take me back to Tom and Claire’s engagement shoot at Whitstable at the end of August. I first met with Tom and Claire in the spring when we discussed their plans for their wedding at The Old Kent Barn next year and they had a look at various sample albums. Roll on to August and we met again after they had returned from a trip to Italy – so refreshed and sun-kissed, we met near the huts at Tankerton.
Tom and Claire soon relaxed into the shoot, even though it was pretty busy down at the coast with folk wanting to make the most of the good weather and no doubt were waiting for a sunset. The light was just beautiful that evening and although initially sunglasses were required, the light gave options for back lighting and creating some interesting silhouettes. It was a little windy but thankfully it was blowing in the right direction for the light. Tom and Claire were such good company and needed little direction, particularly once they fully relaxed into their Whitstable engagement shoot!
Here are a few of my favourite images from the evening.
