Jo & Ali wanted to do their engagement shoot in Leamington Spa in locations that were special to them. We visited the park they used to sit in, the porch of the house where they first lived together and a cosy café they loved to visit. They’re both huge rugby fans so we made sure to incorporate this into their photos. They also wanted a Christmas feel so we used mistletoe, a Christmas tree and they even changed into (tasteful) Christmas jumpers! A prewed shoot is a great way to get used to being photographed and relax in front of the camera – and gives beautifully romantic, natural images which can be used for invitations or if you plan a Christmas engagement shoot then even Christmas cards.

They braved the cold for some photos in the park, then wrapped up warm for cozy snuggled up photos together before a stop to warm up with hot chocolate in a beautiful little café with hams and garlic hanging in the windows. Then it was time for winter woolies, Christmas trees and mistletoe for the ultimate Christmas enagement photos.
