A Romantic couple photoshoot in Eynsford
I’ve been shooting a lot of urban engagement shoots recently, but every now and then a request lands in my inbox for a rural romantic couple photoshoot to celebrate a couple’s love, rather than a particular special occasion or because they have just got engaged. This was one of these times, and when Joaquin contacted me to arrange this couple’s shoot as a surprise for his girlfriend Sarah, I felt very excited.
Both Sarah and Joaquin love the outdoors and Joaquin wanted to make it a big feature of their shoot. The tiny little village of Eynsford in Kent seemed the perfect place and we decided to meet one late summer afternoon and take a stroll together to the ruins of Eynsford castle, the River Darent and the hay bales on the field overlooking the Eynsford viaduct. Arriving at the station, I picked them up and we soon overcame Sarah’s initial nervousness. I’m sure the short nip to the pub for a sneaky pint and glass of wine helped too 🙂
Joaquin hails from far away Venezuela and is a keen cyclist, while Sarah is an NHS nurse and very much an English rose. How stunning does she look in her dress? I just love the way it brings out her green emerald eyes and golden hair and it was obvious that Joaquin noticed it too. 🙂
With the golden late afternoon sun shining on us, the summer warmth allowed us to have a wonderful relaxed afternoon together and Joaquin and Sarah took my advice and made a day and evening of it, staying in the area and enjoying a lovely dinner after our shoot. It was blissful, one of those rare summer days that seem to last forever. Towards the end of the shoot, the sky changed and a big front of clouds pulled in, which made the breathtaking views over the Kent countryside even more dramatic.
I just can’t resist the beauty of their romantic couple shoot and hope you like it too. I would love to hear your views, or if you would like to book your very own romantic couple photoshoot, get in touch and let’s do it!
