Pre- Wedding Photoshoot with Laura & Jeremy – Whitstable West Beach
It is not often that we have the opportunity to plan a pre-wedding photoshoot at the beach in the UK, so when Jeremy emailed me asking if we can do so, it was a no-brainer. A couple’s photoshoot at the beach in the midst of summer during a heatwave can be very challenging, but we were up for the challenge. We decided on this occasion that we would catch the golden hour for the best possible light and effects. Shooting at the beach in broad daylight is not a good idea due to the harsh light casting unpleasant shadows on the face and also because of the tendency to squint.
We started the photoshoot around 7:30pm, which left us with just about an hour before sunset. Light was golden and soft though harsher than expected. The beach was empty allowing us plenty of room and shoot without interruptions. The beach huts served as great props and the low tide added more depth to the images. Here are just a few of the images of the day.
