Jack and Laura’s Just Us
Dartmoor Engagement Photographer
It was a beautiful May evening when I met up with Laura and Jack for their Engagement Shoot at Fingle Bridge and Castle Drogo in Dartmoor, Devon.
This lovely couple booked me to be their Dartmoor Wedding Photographer back when I first met them in October at a Wedding Show in Exeter. Like me, Laura grew up on a farm, so their wedding will take place on the family farm in June.
With only a few weeks to go, there’s still a little work to be done on the farm to get it looking less agricultural and more matrimonial, but I was super excited to hear all about their plans for the big day!
We were totally blessed with some glorious Dartmoor views, a beautiful sunset and were even joined for a short while by some adorable Dartmoor ponies!
Feeling a little nervous in front of the camera at first, after a bit of a chat and a giggle about farmers notorious time-keeping, Jack and Laura soon relaxed into it and we got some truly stunning photographs. Here’s a few of my favourites…
Why I love Dartmoor
There’s nothing quite like getting short of breath as you take a hike up the rugged moorland of Dartmoor. With rewarding views over Devon and Cornwall, the climb up Haytor is one of my absolute favourites, followed of course, by a trip to a cosy, country pub!
I’d never been to Fingle Glen before my shoot with Jack and Laura but when I arrived I was warmly greeted by a friendly, cosy pub and a humpback bridge that looked like it had come straight out of Hobbiton
. There was a carpet of bluebells lining the floor as we climbed up through the woodland. After a final steep climb up, we were treated with epic views over this incredible county, a gorgeous sunset and of course, grazing Dartmoor ponies.
With it’s rugged, varied landscape, it’s unpredictable weather and it’s jaw-dropping views, Dartmoor is one of my absolute favourite places to shoot.
