INSPIRATION - An Eco Friendly Boho Beach Engagement and Elopement Shoot at Ogmore Beach, Captured by Leesha Williams Photography and Chloe Mary Photo

23rd August 2019


Leesha Williams Eco Beach Elopement with Coop Couture dressI'm delighted to feature this exquisite styled engagement and elopement shoot, jointly conceptualised and captured by Leesha Williams Photography and Chloe Mary Photo. In a regular wedding context, having a lead and a second photographer results in a more full coverage of the day - both sets of preparations, for example; and whilst the lead is undertaking couple portraits, the second will be present for the guest shots. In this instance, Leesha and Chloe have each captured the shoot with a slightly different eye, and have each applied their own unique edit to their images (which with a conventional lead/second arrangement, they would defer to the former's style). 

Leesha explains the concept of the shoot:

"We wanted to create a boho beach elopement with minimal color palette based around stone elements (beiges and greys to recreate the beach) and the surroundings of the shoot. We wanted to strip back the shoot to the bare essentials and heavily feature the couple and the boho vibe. Having the male model use his own suit was to show couples don't have to splash the cash on unnessecary items when they may already have them and to be eco-conscious about items you may not be able to re-use. Our MUA created a gorgeously natural and glowy makeup look to pair with the minimal styling we wanted to go for which allowed for the models freckles and natural beauty to shine through.

To complement the eco-friendly theme, the outfit we used consisted of three pieces which was a short dress, large over skirt and cropped beaded top. With these three items we managed to create three separate looks and the bride could keep all three items and repurpose them for different outfits afterwards."

So let's get straight to these beautiful images (Chloe Mary Photos as watermarked - all others by Leesha Williams Photography).
