Lauren and Phil’s
Dartmoor Engagement Shoot


This was my first engagement shoot of the 2019 season and WOW did it blow my mind! Lauren, Phil and I took a hike up Dartmoor one Sunday morning in late February – we were blessed with beautiful light, weather that decided to behave, and outstanding views across the beautiful Devonshire moors.


As I spend a lot of my free time hiking up hills or mountains in search of epic views, I love nothing more than heading off on an adventure with my clients in search of jaw-dropping backdrops and beautiful light. Dartmoor has so much to variety to offer from forestry that feels like you’re lost in the wilderness to dramatic and ever changing skyscapes. I am incredibly inspired by this area of outstanding natural beauty and shooting out in the wilds is my favourite way to spend a few hours.


Like most couples, Lauren and Phil were a little apprehensive about having their photographs taken. After a few bad jokes from myself and a little gentle direction these two quickly learnt to focus on each other and forget I was there. I love nothing more than capturing the natural connection between newly-engaged couples and the love between these two is palpable.


The time leading up to your wedding is one of the most precious, happy times of your lives. I truly believe you should invest in capturing memories of that wonderful time. If you’re on the fence about whether or not you’d like an engagement shoot, you should definitely check out my blog about why I think it’s a good idea here.


Afterwards we’d finished, Lauren, Phil and I went for lunch in a local cafe and had a good old natter about all their wedding plans.
