Last weekend I made the journey up to Dublin to do my first engagement shoot of the year. Both Roisin and Phil are from Dublin and we decided to use the nearby Phoenix Park as a beautiful open space to capture their time together. Roisin and Phil also brought their adorable 4 year old daughter Mia, who bravely handled with the bitterly cold weather for mid March!
Phoenix Park is known as one of the largest one of the largest enclosed recreational spaces within any European capital city and that gave us plenty of room to make the engagement shoot as intimate as possible.
We spent a few hours wandering around various locations within the park, all with a very relaxed pace for shooting the images. As with anyone who has had a portrait session with me, I always allow time for everyone to get comfortable in front of the camera. It can be unnerving at first but I was happy to get some lovely shots of this young couple.
Both Roisin and Phil had intended to get married this year but had to postpone the wedding till next year. I think we can all forget how much planning can go into a wedding and it rapidly catch up on you! I had a great time photographing them both and their lovely daughter and I wish them all the best in their future together :) An engagement session is a memorable way of capturing intimate images of you and your partner without the pressure of your wedding day schedule. If you think you would appreciate an engagement session in a relaxed environment, why don't you contact me here and we can start to plan a memorable shoot together.
