Engagements photos for a cool couple

June is a beautiful time of year on the Isle of Man and on a sunny day, there is no better place than the sandy beaches of Ballaugh. I have done quite a few late evening beach engagement photos so I fancied trying out the morning light.

We met in a busy and (for those that don’t know this is a crazy motorbike race that happens every year on the Isle of Man) morning at around 9:30am. Ballaugh beach is on the west coast of the Isle of Man so we got some lovely soft light shining over the grassy banks towards the sea. I love working with couples who are after something a bit different. Photos that are both romantic but fun and a bit editorial at the same time.

The Engagement Photos ended up with a cool Cali vibe

Who would have thought that they were taken on an Island located in the North of the British Isles? It is amazing what you can create with the right lighting and choice of location.

This engagement photo for cool couple Rachel & Ryan has an vintage 35mm film feel and I love it
Beautiful morning light coming from the grassy banks
There is a definite Cali feel in these photos

I love showing the couple having fun together
I also love creating cool and different shots. This one of Ryan looking out to sea has such a cool vibe
I do also love a different arty shot. I just had to edit this one in black and white.

Edited this very editorial shot in black and white. It has to be one of my favourites.
We found some beautiful flowers lining the beach we had to use them in a beach shot
I love Rachels white Dr Martins in this photo

For the Camera Geeks…What lens did I use for this shoot?

The majority of images were shot on my Sony GM 35mm prime lens. It is such a fast and reliable lens. It makes shooting fast movements really easy. The 35mm focal is also great at making things look very vintage-like which I love. I also took a few shots from my Sigma 85mm Art lens. I love using the 85mm for any detail shots.
