Lucy Turnbull Photography » Happy and unaffected reportage wedding photography from a world-class tea drinker covering UK, Europe and further afield.


Engagement shoot. E-shoot. Pre-wedding shoot.

Lots of names and lots of ways to describe it. None of which really fit. None really work.

It’s good because it means I’ve evolved – am evolving – and what I do isn’t as easy, as simple, as plopping two people in front of the camera and pressing the big shiny button.

It’s about us getting to know each other and finding each other’s groove.

It’s also about me padding along behind whilst I try to get an idea of what makes you tick as a couple. It’s not about getting perfect poses and making something glossy to make you the envy of your friends (necessarily).

It’s about the two of you.

Who you are now.

Right now – before you do the great big wedding thing.

It’ll be fun. (I promise)



“Hi Lucy!!
Thanks so much for your sterling effort on Monday! It was ace to meet you and do some shots in kennall vale! Although we were a bit nervous we think it turned out great. Chris seems comfortable with you which makes me really happy and feel easier.
I loved the four pictures you put on facebook!!

Thanks for making us look so groovy!!!”

Holly and Chris


“Lucy we can’t thank you enough. You’ve managed to take photos we didn’t even know you were taking. We knew the photos on your site were what we we wanted but we never dreamt you would be so bang on. Until today we had one family photo that all three of us like – Izzy was 8 weeks old in that one so we were well over due. Thanks to you we now have lots to choose from. What more can we say. You seem to know us better than we know ourselves.

Thank you again and we cannot wait until the big day”.

  • Jenny Moorcroft - Hi,

    I was wondering if you could give me some information/prices about a short engagement shoot in Polzeath on the18th/19th October.

    Apologies, I know it’s a little late notice, just wondering if it was feasible.

    Thank you,
