It is always such a joy to capture two people in love. I really like to capture the excitement of proposals and new engagements just as much as couples who want some special images of their travels together or their anniversary. I always focus on creating an experience that feels relaxed, like friends hanging out, so images that I capture are natural and authentic.
Most couples say to me that they are nervous ahead of having their photos taken and let’s be honest, it’s not an everyday thing to be out somewhere with a photographer with you. But, I work in a way that puts you at ease, we’ll chat, you’ll spend time talking about shared memories and plans for the future and that is where the good stuff happens, the giggles, the knowing smiles and the natural moments, and that’s what I love to capture.
It’s also this that makes our time together more of a wonderful experience, that is about more than just photographs being taken. Its about having some time together to press pause and reflect on your lives together, as well as having some beautiful photographs to take home too.
What time of day is best?
I love to shoot in the couple of hours ahead of sunset, as the light changes so rapidly it can really help to add an extra dimension to your images. If we’re in a city, we can see the street lights come on and the city start to sparkle. I love the idea of shooting at sunrise too, such different light, and often areas are super quiet at this time of the day too.
What should we wear?
This is completely up to you, this is your shoot and the images you will have to look back on. Some couples decide to dress up for their shoot, others choose a more relaxed and casual look. Some couples would like to change outfits midway through the shoot. This is something I am more than happy with but it’s worth thinking through as depending on the location, the flow of the shoot and our mobility with additional bags can limit what we can do
What if the weather is bad?
Because the British weather is what it is i’m are also totally flexible, so if you need to alter dates due to illness or the weather that’s fine, i’m are happy to re-arrange.
What happens after the shoot?
- I hand pick just a few previews for you to see some of the beautiful moments we have experienced together and get excited about the whole collection and these are shared on my social media.
- One of the things I pride myself on is speed of service and your whole collection is edited within 7-10 working days and is shared via your online gallery that you can download images from.
- Images are delivered in high resolution, and you have a licence to print, share and upload your images.
Whats the cost?
The cost of a couple shoot is £150 for one hour and includes 50+ images. These images are yours to keep and come with print licence. All images will be uploaded to you own password protected gallery. From your gallery you can download your images or if you wish arrange prints directly from your gallery.
