James & Jo Netley Country Park Engagement Shoot

Netley Country Park Engagement Shoot

Recently I had the pleasure of meeting James & Jo for their Netley Country Park Engagement Shoot. It was a crazy windy day with a real chill in the air from the sea breeze and high winds so our plans of taking photos on the seafront part of Netley Country Park were a bit hindered but despite the high winds, we were still able to get some lovely photos and we found a slightly more covered area with trees and a forest look to it which took out some of the wind. It was so nice to actually meet James and Jo in person as we met initially via FaceTime when we did our consultation before they chose to book with me, because of how far away they live. It just happened that James was taking his son to a football match in Southampton that day, so we were able to tie it in with their engagement shoot whilst they were in the area. They told me that they were particularly nervous and anxious about having their photos taken as it’s not something their used to or really enjoy but they got into it really quickly and seemed to find the shoot really enjoyable as I helped them relax through my personable nature and relaxed approach, allowing them to be themselves to capture natural shots. It was for that reason that it was a great idea that they had the engagement shoot as it gave them an insight as to how it will be on the day and hopefully made them feel more comfortable with having their photos taken as well as a great chance to get to know eachother.

I can’t wait to photograph James and Jo’s special day at the beautiful Southend Barns in August and meeting all of their lovely family and friends! 🙂

If you are thinking about having an engagement session at Netley Country Park, it offers a wide variety of backdrops for the photos, it was just unfortunate that the day we took these photos, it was super windy so we couldn’t make the most of the location and go down to the beach or take photos by the The Chapel/Heritage Centre as that was covered in scaffolding for refurbishment. Here is a link to Royal Victoria Country Park for you to see what it has to offer – http://www3.hants.gov.uk/rvcp
