Sam + Rachel Engagement Shoot

Jon Brown

As a photographer, taking engagements photos are a real highlight. You have the opportunity to get lots of creative, informal, romantic, silly, memorable pictures.  

I had the privilege of doing an engagement shoot with Sam and Rachel last month. The location was Highfields Park, next to the University of Nottingham, where the couple both studied (as did I)!

We walked around the beautiful little lake, and then ventured out on a little row boat for a bit of fun! These guys are such a great couple and were up for having some fun! This was epitomised when Sam did something that I have certainly never seen before (see final photo).

Sam's surname is 'Young'. When he proposed he said to Rachel, 'How do you feel about being Forever Young?".

Decided to take a photo based on this legendary line!

Sam arrived and said to me, "This is an engagement *shoot* right?" [proceeds to pull something out of his bag] "Well I've bought some Nerf guns!"

I decided to get a little creative and make this photo into something that looked it was from a comedy action movie.
