We had our engagement shoot with Stuart and we’re thrilled with the results. He and his girlfriend Han put us at ease and they were both really patient with us.

I quite freely talk about how I love photographing with adventurous couples. When I floated the idea of jumping in the sea for Stella and Steve’s engagement shoot, I honestly wasn’t expecting much.

Come on now, who wants to get in the sea in England?

But when I saw Stella’s reaction, I knew this was going to be an awesome shoot. The only slight problem? I bought the wrong underwater housing. One emergency Amazon Prime delivery later I was ready to shoot, armed with my new underwater housing that didn’t inspire as much confidence as the first one.

We warmed up with a little walk along the beach huts, stopping and snapping as we went. Han and I kept out of the way as much as possible and let Stella and Steve just enjoy their time together.

“You can splash each other if you want” led to all out war. It was awesome.

Thanks guys – it was a pleasure photographing with you both!

I'm getting married too!
