Harry and Claire – Engagement Photographs at Wye Valley Viewpoint

Having engagement photographs taken is  a wonderful way to get to know your photographers and get some beautiful photographs at the same time.
Harry and Claire visited the Totally WOW wedding fair at the Nightyard in Bridge. They were newly engaged and found that the wedding fair was a great source of inspiration. A little while after they contacted us to chat about their wedding and they decided we were the photographers for them.

We included an engagement shoot with their package. They decided to have their shoot at the Wye Valley Viewpoint, also known as the Devils Kneading Trough as this is where Harry proposed. We had originally planned for this shoot for May, but torrential rain and Harry hurting his knee while playing tennis pushed it to a very very hot day in July.
We met at the top of the viewpoint and was greeted with amazing panoramic views over Kent and the coast, an amazing place to spend a quiet afternoon. With the sun being still very high in the sky and absolutely no clouds in the sky, we took a walk and found a little grove with some trees. With some open shade at last we took some wonderful engagement photographs. We made the most of the shade then took a walk to the viewpoint. An amazing spot perfect for proposing to a loved one, we just had to get some photographs on this point and also on the cute little bench. With the viewpoint being so high, it makes for some spectacular engagement photographs.
With the heat being almost unbearable we took a walk to find some shade, we happened to come across a little carpark by a open meadow. With a cute rustic gate a wonderful light behind them we took some of my favourite engagement photographs of the session. It just goes to show that even a car park can look amazing with a little imagination. We cant wait to shoot their wedding at Bilsington Priory in October.
