I am such a big fan of the ocean, the great outdoors and landscapes with sweeping views. I adore shooting adventure elopements and intimate weddings in the wild. When Nofar and Jonny told me they were looking for a Dorset elopement photographer to capture some wedding photos of them and asked me to do it, I was thrilled.
Engagement photos on Jurassic Coast
I first met this beautiful couple last Autumn, when they had me photograph their engagement on Jurassic Coast. They wanted a session somewhere in the countryside and ideally by the sea.
Since Jonny grew up in Dorset, we chose to visit the picturesque Jurrasic Coast. We connected straight away when we met and had a great time despite the wet and cold weather on the day.
Nofar and Jonny loved the images we captured that day and I was so excited when they got in touch again this summer.
Intimate coastal elopement in Dorset
They told me that they were planning an intimate elopement with just the two of them. Over the winter they got legally married back in Nofar’s native Israel. They held a big wedding there for their families and now they wanted to celebrate an intimate day together.
With fond memories of their engagement session, Nofar and Jonny planned a similarly adventurous day. We went back to the Jurassic Coast, which offers stunning views of white cliffs, beach coves and the sea.
To avoid the crowds, we decided to aim for a sunrise elopement. The weather forecast was predicting a hot, sunny day but when we arrived, the fog was so thick that we barely saw any sun until an hour or so later.
Throughout the shoot, the fog was moving in and out, one minute so thick we could barely see and the next all but gone. While contributing to the chill factor, this meant that we were able to capture a variety of images.
Below you can see some of my favourites from the day.
