Sam and Claire - Engagement Shoot, Porth Nobla, Anglesey / by Dorian Knightley

Sam and Claire wanted a special album of photos to mark their engagement. Anglesey is a spiritual home to them as Sam's family have a house on the island and they visit it often.

I can see why.

I've never visited anywhere so wild and beautiful. It's like stepping into another world. It wasn't exactly beach weather but the mist and clouds just made the pictures more special and otherworldly. From old, ramshackle farmhouses and cottages to stunning, wild beaches. You can see the mountains of Snowdonia in the distance. We decided on a beach near Rhosneigr, which is a very popular holiday spot for surfers. Porth Nobla is a mile or so down the coast from Rhosneigr and less busy. In fact, we were almost the only people there. The sea itself was rough and wild, you could taste the salt in the air. Sam and Claire faced the wind and sea spray like champs and we managed to get some very beautiful pictures.
