Gloriously Golden Sunset Engagement Photographs At Danes Dyke Bridlington
I’m getting into full swing now with engagement shoots nearly every weekend for the next 3 months. Whilst the light is golden its a great time to get out to the cliff tops, lakes and forests and capture some special, intimate and exciting moments for my couples before their big day. For Rhiannon and Dan, they would be preparing for their big day at Rowley Manor in Yorkshire.
This weekend it was Rhiannon and Dan who joined me up at Danes Dyke near Bridlington. It was a little breezier than anticipated and there was some mist rolling off the sea but the sun did not disappoint. Beautiful golden rays bathed us light as the sun was making the last journey of the day. I always try to time my pre-wedding and engagement photo sessions an hour before sunset as this is the best time to get that soft warm light.
Both Rhiannon and Dan were a little nervous at first but after just 5 minutes they were naturals! My style involves very little posing, more of a prompt such as ‘give him a cuddle’ and I’ll capture the spontaneous emotions that unfold. We had a little walk from the car park up to the cliff tops. And if you’ve been to Danes Dyke who’ll know how hard that ‘little’ walk is. The cliff tops provide a beautiful view of Bridlington to the south and north up along the coast to Flamborough. The mist hampered the view a little but made for some atmospheric shots. Another reason why I love shooting outdoors, you just never know what conditions you’re going to be met with!
Anyway, that’s enough from me – you want to see some photos…
