A back to nature, woodland engagement shoot – Ruth & Liz, with Hannah Timm Photography

Published by Claire Gould on

This time last year, we were all feeling more than a little lost. 12 months on, and I’m feeling positive about the summer. It really feels as though weddings will be back to normal before we know it! So I’m excited, and happy, and looking forward to a fresh start very soon. Which brings me to today’s lovely, loved-up, outdoorsy engagement shoot. Ruth and Liz are our gorgeous couple who are hoping for a sunny wedding in their field with their horses in Cornwall!

These two met 15 years ago, parted ways and then got back together a couple of years back. This photo shoot was to celebrate their engagement – and I love how it captures them as a couple: not posed, just natural, in their element and wonderfully, infectiously happy together! (Also – fur babies on engagement shoots is a must. Just saying…)

Whenever I share an engagement shoot I’m bursting to say: do this. Just book one. Now. They’re a brilliant way to get to know your photographer, to relax in front of the camera (so it won’t be such a big deal at your wedding) and to get gorgeous, real life memories captured forever.

Thanks to Ruth & Liz for rocking your pre-wedding photo session, and to lovely Hannah Timm Photography for sharing these beautiful images with us.

Have a great weekend!“english

“We met each other about 15 years ago back in our home town in Devon. After briefly dating back then, we both went our separate ways and got back in contact with each other in 2018.

We found our shoot with Hannah so much fun! Despite both of us hating having our photos taken, Hannah made us feel so at ease! She has a wonderful way of capturing the moments that are the most special between you as a couple.

Our wedding will be just a lovely relaxed affair with all our special friends and family who are a constant support to us as a couple. We are both already really excited to see what Hannah photographs on the day!”
