Patrick & Elliot Love Shoot
 

It was such an honour to work with amazing couple Patrick and Elliot back in the summer.  Such fun and lovely guys, we shot around locations local to their home in East London.

It's always important to me to get to know my clients before our shoot, and a privelage to hear all about their love story.

Spending that time together first also really helps my clients to get into an open place, feel comfortable with me and the camera, so that the portraits we create together are natural, unfiltered and real.  Aah, what a joy!!

I'd love to share Patricks thoughts on the shoot after our time together - his words are so touching and his message is pefect:

It's ironic that as a model agent who encourages others to jump in front of the camera and look great, I have never been comfortable doing the same. I rarely even take selfies and stand at the back when it comes to group pictures.

My boyfriend on the other hand loves a picture. So it was a bit of a tough decision when We decided to be shot by Becky. We had only ever met once and now We were to display our personal relationship story and emotions for her to capture. 

I was nervous that morning, and more so because I wanted to do my best and ensure the images were great. Becky was really warm and friendly on arrival and straight away wiped away my worries because we spent the first part of the shoot chatting about various things.

Her skill of getting my boyfriend and I to talk about how we first met and rediscover why we have been together for 13 years was so great. We got caught up in the love and adventure and most of all the comfort of working with someone who cared about us just as much as we cared for each other.

The toughest challenge was subtle public display of affection when shooting outside as people walked by, as a gay couple this will always be a scary thing but Becky kept it natural and was always full of encouragement. 

In the end we were so relaxed we didn't want the shoot to end. It was such a cool experience and we would recommend it to anyone.

Thanks Becky 

If you know that you'd love to have some photographs like this with your partner, but feel unsure about the experience, know that what we'll create together is a safe space for you to relax and be yourself, and it's always so much fun! You'll come away with special photographs to cherish for a lifetime.

Fleur & Miguel Love Shoot
 

It was such a joy to work with gorgeous couple Fleur and Miguel back in June! Two of the nicest people you could meet, I loved capturing some special moments with them at one of my favourite settings local to us in Buckinghamshire.

I went to college with Fleur, so it was great to reconnect and hear about whats happened in her world since that time, to meet lovely Miguel and hear about their love story so far!

The weather was a bit crazy on the day of our shoot, and after waiting a little while for some torrential rain to pass we headed into this beautiful location and the sun came out for us! Yay!

I'm thrilled with what we created together, hope you enjoy the images! Thanks Fleur and Miguel!

All images captured on 35mm Portra 400 processed by the UK Film Lab.

Mel and Nick - Springtime Engagement Session

It was wonderful to spend some time with beautiful Mel and Nick for their Engagement shoot in the Spring, get excited about their Wedding and creating some joyful images of this special time!

I LOVE engagement shoots with my Wedding clients, it's the perfect time to catch up, find out how their plans are coming together and reconnect... But one of the most amazing things about Engagement sessions is that it can really settle any nerves around being in front of the camera, and puts them at ease before their Wedding. Heres a quick video I made in the car after this shoot!

Anna & Rob Engagement Session

Say hello to my wonderful August bride and groom! I am so excited to be covering Anna and Robs wedding later this month at the stunning Loseley Park, Surrey. It was so much fun spending this time with them at their wedding venue earlier this summer, getting to know them better and taking some photos before the big day. I can't wait, it's going to be so beautiful!

Vicky & Ben | Engagement Photography in Wokingham

It seems fitting to share this gorgeous engagement session I did last month with you, on Valentines day! Let me introduce you to Vicky and Ben. I first met Vicky about two years ago at a networking meeting, she's a sports therapist at her company Ocean Sports Therapy. I was thrilled to hear about her engagement when she got in touch with me a year later, and enquired about wedding photography.

They are such a fun and lovely couple and are getting married in Oxford in April. I am so looking forward to capturing their special day.

We did this engagement session a frosty January afternoon at the California Country Park in Wokingham, a few minutes drive from where they live, the sun was shining and it was a really fun shoot!

It was so lovely to spend some time with them before the wedding, catch up again and hear how all their plans are going, before Vicky headed off for the bridesmaid dress fitting!
