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.
If you love these photos and would like to work with me on your engagement photos then contact me to find out my prices. Book me for your wedding and I’ll include the engagement photos as part of your wedding package.
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.
