Story

This shot was taken towards the end of an elopement shoot in the stunning New Forest, on the south coast of the UK. It is a magical place and I love shooting there. Every time I do, I want to make sure that the forest plan a big part in the image. In this particular case, however, I did not pre visualise this image at all. It was pure chance. A happy accident. As we where walking form one location to the next, I was busy scouting ahead of my couple for the next location, when I turned around and saw them framed and backlight in wonderful light by century old trees. It inspired me to take this photograph.

Andrea Verenini

Photographer United Kingdom Canon R6 50mm f1.2
Hey everyone, my name is Andrea. I’m a Wedding and Fashion Photographer. Italian. Based in the UK but working worldwide. I am easy going, my images may be dramatic but I definitely am not! In 2021 I was the recipient of the highly coveted Rangefinder ‘Rf30 Rising Star’ Award which was a dream come true (and it still feels like a dream). I am on a never ending searching for unique couples to frame in breathtaking light and stunning scenery around the world. I would love to tell you photography was always my passion since an early age, but it would not be true. I came to photography slowly and in my late 20s. In my previous life I was an Architect and later a Design and Architecture Editor for a small online magazine. My useless possession is a PhD in Urban Regeneration which is currently used as a doorstop… and a pretty lousy one at that. My only regret? Probably not finding photography sooner but then again, better late than never! When not travelling and working, I can be found obsessing over the latest crime-docuseries next to a Margherita pizza and a good Old Fashioned on the rocks. Aside from shooting for clients, my other passion is transmitting my endless love for photography through education and mentorships to the next generation of shooters.
