A Sunny Southend Evening Engagement Shoot - with a bit of Love Actually!


These guys met at their first jobs, while they were both at College. Stacey then met Joe's family (unintentionally) on their first date.  Stacey knew Joe was the one when they went on a date to Thorpe Park and had never laughed so much or had so much fun.   They will be saying "I do" on Thursday, exactly 5 years to the day that Joe proposed, and 9 years to the day that they first met! It is going to be a very special day. 

We met up with Stacey and Joe recently for their engagement shoot in Rochford on a beautiful sunny evening. We took off exploring the countryside, getting to know each other better and hearing all about their wedding plans (as well as the stag and hen do's!).  It was lovely to see the special trinket boxes that Joe had given to Stacey when he proposed, and to play out a few scenes from one of their favourite movies - Love Actually - for some fun photos. 

We loved spending time with these guys And seeing the special connection that they have. We can't wait to be their Essex Wedding Photographers at The Oysterfleet Hotel later this week.
