We love an engagement shoot and we love this one of Carly and Joel, captured by Sarah Wayte Photography on Hunstanton Beach in Norfolk. Sarah the photographer who is based in East Hanningfield, Chelmsford, Essex, told us about the day.
“I’m Sarah, a wedding and portrait photographer based in Essex. I approach my photography from an emotional viewpoint preferring to capture genuine and natural interactions, where my ultimate goal is to remind the subject of the photo about how they were feeling when it was taken. This all means that I approach a shoot as I would a meeting with friends, very naturally with lots of fun, smiles and laughter. And I’m not averse to squealing excitedly when I get a shot I love as well!
This engagement session, with the gorgeous Carly and Joel, took place on a grey day on Hunstanton Beach in Norfolk last summer. It was one of those typical English days with overcast skies and some light rain but when I got up there, I knew I didn’t need to worry as these two stunners totally outshone their surroundings and were complete naturals in front of the camera! We started off pretty close to the shore because the tide was about to start heading in so I knew we wouldn’t have much time. In working to get them comfortable in front of the camera, I totally forgot about the tide so it was a good job I had my hubby along with me for the afternoon or we would have been making one very embarrassed call to coastguard!
Carly & Joel totally rocked their shoot, going all with the games I had for them to play, sharing little moments with each other and telling me all about their wedding plans. All in all, it was a great afternoon as we slowly made our way up the beach and towards the cute beach huts behind the dunes and, after we all finally said goodbye, we grabbed a portion of chips as every good beach-goer should before heading back home.”
