Engagement – Lydia and Mike in Rilla Mill Cornwall

Today was the first of many engagement photo shoots booked in for this year. Lydia and Mike chose a walk in the beautiful Cornish countryside – an ancient woodland near Bodmin Moor – for their photo shoot. It was a fun day, despite being a little freezing!

Why have an engagement shoot? It’s a great opportunity for us to get to know you as a couple and how you photograph and for you to get to know our shooting style. It’s a chance to take some amazing photos of you both, to practice and experiment in front of the camera. This will make you more comfortable in front of the camera so there are no surprises on the big day.

Welcome to my blog :-)

Hello
This is my very first post and I wanted to say hello to all my lovely new friends and followers of Liberty Pearl Photography.

My name is Amber and this is my company Liberty Pearl Photography.

I just wanted to tell you a few things about myself….

As you can see from the photograph I have a beautiful daughter Liberty Pearl. She is my beautiful little angel and my inspiration for starting this venture. I have been a photographer for 16 years and a wedding and portrait photographer for eight years.

I started out shooting music and nature photography (strange combination I know) but when Liberty came along photo shoots until 5am in night clubs didn’t really suit my new way of life; I decided to steer my portfolio of work towards family portraits and weddings.

I love being creative and found that wedding and portrait photography was a new exciting challenge for me. I was put off wedding photography because it seemed so dull, staged, and formal. So if you want that type of wedding photography you are in the wrong place.

I am a nature lover and after studying Photography at Plymouth College of Art I changed direction completely and studied Conservation Biology at University in Bristol, consequently you will always find a connection to nature and the beautiful world around us in my images.
I live in South Devon, I am surrounded by beautiful landscapes from woodland to beaches to moorland it’s just spectacular.
I hope you enjoy my website, I cannot wait to meet you.

P.S.
Natural light makes me smile……..I love baking and making things……….I love telling a little story with my photos….
