This Spring Summer, I am opening up my calendar for a very limited number of Engagement Shoots filled with Light , Love and Joy...

You take your pick;

The perfect backdrop to highlight the Love you have for one another. 

If this excites you, then Hurry to reserve your spots!

 

Especially for the Cherry Blossom sessions because these will only be in bloom for the next two weeks.

Came House Headshots-29.jpg

Hi, my name is Desiree & I'm a Fine Art Wedding Photographer. 

Very down to earth, with a heart warming friendly personality. 

I'm very camera shy, which is why you will find me behind the camera. That also means that I truly understand your pain if you happen to be camera shy yourself, so I always make sure that I'm directing you in very natural ways, further honing your camera confidence. 

FAQ

We are camera shy...

I work with camera shy couples all the time. To help you relax and feel more comfortable with me, I include a face to face zoom call where we'll get to know each other and talk about everything engagement shoot. I have also developed a pdf guide to help you prepare mentally for your shoot and be more comfortable with the idea of being photographed. On the day, I will help direct you the whole way through and ease you into the shoot very naturally. I have a repertoire of fun playful candid prompts as well as timeless natural prompts to help us create a beautiful collection filled with authentic emotions. 

 

 

 

How do I make a Booking? 

You can start by booking a zero obligations consultaiton. It's a nice way to get to know each other and see if we are the right fit. Following the consultaiton your booking can be secured against a £150 non refundable deposit to cover the cost of permit fees and entry tickets and the reminder would only be due 3 days before the shoot. 

What if we select a date and the flowers are not in bloom yet? 

We will stay in contact and shift your date according to the flowering times. 

How soon can we know our date? 

For all flowering shoots, a tentative date will be booked in temporarily and then reconfirmed as soon as each respective farm opens up to the public, or flowers are coming into bloom.  For this reason you will need to have a level of flexibility, as most flowering periods only last for about 10 to 14days.  This is excluding Richmond Park and the Beach shoot.  For the latter locations, the date you choose will be your actual shoot date, unless we encounter bad weather. The time might always change slightly depending on weather conditions and times are always confirmed the day before the shoot (as we will get the best weather forecast). 

What if I cannot be flexible with my dates? 

Then, the two best locations for you are Richmond Park and the Beach shoot in West Wittering Chichester or Camber Sands in East Sussex . 

We have a location significant to us, can we hold the shoot there? 

I want every experience to be bespoke to you, so yes of course.  I highly recommend that you book a consultation first so that I can better advise you. 

What if I need to cancel?

Once you book, I will need to make arrangements to secure a permit or a pass for the location we are photographing at. For this reason, you can choose to cancel however the a percentage of the deposit will be non refundable (depending on the location). Transfers will be considered on a case by case basis, however any costs lost in relation to permit fees, entry tickets or travel, will be deducted from the transferring sum and any new permit fees required will be charged extra. 

What shall we wear?

I will send you a guide to help you prepare for your shoot including all my tips on finding the right outfit for you. 

Can we linger in the flower fields and or pick flowers before or after the shoot?

Yes, all within the guidelines of each respective farm.  An entry ticket will be included for the two of you, so you can enter and stay at your leisure during the farm's opening hours. Each location will have their own policy for picking flowers, and some will sell them separately.  Most also have cafe's where you'll be able to sit and have a cup of coffee.
