Smoke Bomb Forest Shoot • Charlotte + Sam


I had so much fun a few weeks back with Charlotte and Sam for their smoke bomb forest engagement shoot.

They travelled down to meet me as I knew of a lovely forest, out of the way, that would be perfect for the shoot.

Charlotte had seen some shoots with smoke bombs and wanted to try them out for their shoot. So I did some research and spoke to other photographers who had used them before.  There’s some health and safely issues around these so I bought my husband along with me to be ‘fire and safety’ officer for the day. We had gloves and water and a safe place to put the used smoke bombs.

We had a LOT OF fun and I love the results!

After the woods we headed up to Winchester to a great spot with some wonderful old buildings and lots of colourful graffiti, and some more smoke bombs.

I love engagement shoots, it’s such a fun way to spend a few hours and it really does help us get to know each other, and for you to feel more relaxed about being photographed on your wedding day … or even just for fun if you’re already married !!

I love scrabble, a glass of red wine, music, buttons, string ~ all the beautiful paper, old books, wooden boxes, rainbows, junk shops, birds, Thai food, sunlight through trees, shapes, patterns ~ the world is a visual feast ~ and my world is in pictures.

In both my art and my photography I want to create something that has a lasting meaning.
