Oxford Engagement Photographer | Lucy & AJ

incredible couples portrait - shot into the sun and surrounded by the booked of green leaves


“Hi Alex, These look amazing. Thank you so much.”


I love pre wedding shoots. They often give me time to shoot at a much slower pace than I’m afforded at weddings, where often the best light for portraits passes whilst other things are happening and the allocated portrait time is sometimes much tighter than is ideal – as little as 5 minutes sometimes!

I really do think that portrait time should be viewed as a couples quiet 20 minutes or so to themselves, a special little moment away from the wedding party to just enjoy a special bit of time together and catch their breath. On Lucy and AJ’s shoot we had the most delicious light and so we just took our time and made the most of it as we strolled around the grounds of Worcester College in Oxford. It was such a perfect summer evening which would have been a waste to rush through – the shoot was much more enjoyable and we got some great frames as a result!

I’ve been looking forward to their wedding for a fair while now and after our little shoot, all the more so. These two are such lovely people and an absolute pleasure to be in the company of! Roll on the wedding next month! Can’t wait!

James - Lovely work Alex, especially love the last five images in your blog post! The four black & whites are so good and suits the mood of the photographs.

Great job

Robin Horton - A well written intro to a lovely group of images Alex, you used the superb light to its fullest advantage.

Kim - Not sure why I’ve only just seen these now Alex but lovely lovely work! I especially like the last B&W frame and the one in the netting area – feel like I should probably know the technical description for this location but ‘netting area’ will do! Good good stuff!
