A few weeks ago Tim and I had an engagement photo shoot! I didn't know what to expect but we absolutely loved the day! We chose to take some pictures in Leysdown in Kent for a few reasons.
One being that we love being by the sea. Our best times are spent on the coast, we got engaged in the middle of the sea and we plan to get married on a beach. Leysdown is also a really special place for me, it's where my mum used to take me, my nan and my grandad on sunny days throughout my childhood. It was a way of having the memory of my mum involved in our pictures and that was really important to me.
Because I have such a strong nostalgic connection to Leysdown, we tend to go there quite regularly. It's only 20 minutes or so down the road from us and it's always good fun. A bit of arcade action, most usually air hockey and a go on the dance machine, followed by a stroll along the sea with an ice cream in tow. My perfect day!
We had such a fun day taking these photos. I want to say a massive thank you to Jim Drew from J Drew Photography for not only the beautiful shots but also for making us feel so at ease on the day. We were concerned being a popular place on a sunny day in the middle of the school holidays, taking photos might seem a bit awkward and draw unwanted attention. However we needn't have worried, we were able to simply enjoy ourselves playing the arcade games and being on the beach at the location whilst Jim snapped away capturing great moments. I highly recommend him for any photography work you may need.
I've popped some of my favourite pictures below and we're so happy to have these memories.
