An engagement shoot. Simples.
Firstly, a happy new year to one and all – I hope you all enjoyed ending 2012 and beginning 2013 as much as we did. As you know, my folks were over, which was utterly amazing. I am working on a video on that one. But truth be told I have a horrible cold so wanted to share some pictures from a ‘save the date shoot’ I did with the wonderful Dan and Kelly a few days back.
Dan is our best friend Ally’s brother, and he proposed to the utterly beautiful Kelly shortly after they were last here in Barbados on holiday. They very kindly did a shoot with James while he was here doing some training with my studio staff at the time. They loved the shoot so much (and Dan saw a real opportunity) that he suggested doing another one while they were here, in exchange for being excused from some of the dance classes Kelly had lined up for them prior to the big day.
And so the date was set, and we headed out to a few spots. We had a great time showing Dan and Kelly around the north of the island, and despite it being very overcast, we still got some lovely stuff.
As you can see, the clear blue skies associated with Barbados are very much absent here. Recently, the weather has been utterly atrocious out here on the rock, but I love the dramatic pictures the clouds paint…although I do understand it is not to everyone’s taste.
We started off at the Animal Flower Caves, and after that headed to Heywoods beach. This is where we used to live and was the first time Sian and I had been anywhere near the old resort for some time. It is very sad to see all the old pools emptied out and doors boarded over, but we were here for the beach which, thankfully, was as glorious and deserted as ever.
Being that we have been having such dump weather lately, we do normally get blessed with some interesting cloud formations and sunsets – thankfully today was no exception.
And to finish off? How about one of those salsa-esque dips you have got yourself excused from Dan?!
Thanks a million guys – you were a blast, hope you like the piccies!
Thanks ever so much Revjoe 🙂 xxx
Lovely as usual…
PS: The pic of the beach is so sharp I can feel the texture of that sand under my feet..
Haha, thanks Will 🙂
Yes indeed, f8 with my 24-70 is a wonderful place to be…so, so sharp 😉
Lovely Ferg, but what’s an egagement?
Hope your cold gets better soon and Happy New Year to you both.x
Haha, well spotted Mick…an ‘egagement’ (pronounced ee-gagement) is what the youngsters do nowadays – gone are the well planned, thought out romantic gestures of booking a holiday, getting down on one knee and proposing in the sunset – far from it. Now you just send an email saying “Fancy getting married love?” hence an ‘egagement’.
Or it could have just been an inexcusable typo 😉 x
