I love it when I come home from an Engagement session and I’m still smiling. It sounds cheesy, I know. But ask Jim he’ll vouch for the smiling for no reasons and the conversation about them that will follow. It was so funny when he said that, and she said, then we all laughed…….etc etc. When I came back from meeting Rob and Amy the above scenario strongly played out.
As we wandered through the streets of Saltaire and into the park it became apparent fast that Robert and Amy are the perfect for each other. They smile together from start to finish, laugh together and are in love. Amy is the sister of Jodi, who was one of my first brides,and I am SO excited about their wedding this year not just because of them, but I get to see her fabulous family again!
Rob and Amy, thank you for being so relaxed, so much fun – so you. I can’t wait for you wedding this year. x
It didn’t take them anytime getting relaxed in front of the camera. Amy decided to have a wedding day hair trail for the shoot, so she could see how it would be. Such a fabulous idea – and it looked gorgeous!
Amy – you are stunning. This is happy.
I’ll end with this picture – because no other image would be better! Rob and Amy, thank you for such a fun time. So looking forward to the wedding. x
When you have your own place you want some pictures up.Right?We never really had too many pictures for the house that were that great and that weren’t taken at arms length. So, I contacted a friend and arranged to have some taken – of me and Jim. To be honest it was quite daunting, and we both felt completely daft. But, at the end when I was handed the images I loved them and one still adorns my wall now. So when you get in front of my lens, it ok. I’ve been there, and all I want to do is get you both relaxed, have some fun and give you some fabulous new pictures for your wall.
Its getting to the time of year where a lot of clients that are booked for weddings later in the year are starting to have their engagements sessions. I love engagement sessions. It’s where I can get to meet my clients on a different level and have some fun with them. 99% of all the clients I have will have had an engagement session with me before hand.
To me, when you feel good you look great and a way to feel good is to be comfortable. Clothing can have a massive impact into how you feel. One of the reasons I think that brides look so fabulous on their wedding day is a mixture of marrying their love, being happy and feeling great! They are wearing a dress that makes them feel like a million dollars!If wearing heels make you feel great – pop a pair on. If your nails painted give you a bit of omph – get the paint on. If rocking your converse is where it’s at – get them on! You feel better in a dress? You get the picture – look fabulous, by making yourself feel fabulous. If youR having a makeup trail or a hair trail, why not sync it with the date of your engagement session, see how it looks on the photos. I had a makeup artist to my make up for my pictures and it made me feel so much more confident.
There is a good chance your going to have these pictures for a long time. You don’t have to wear clothes that are matching, but compliment each other. I hope this helps a little bit. Happy Wednesday xx
Their story reminds me that love at fist sight exists. When Stuart was home visiting his parents, he accompanied them on a shopping trip.On this particular trip they went to Laura Ashley and his mum decided to purchase. When they got to the counter, thats when he saw her. But unlike the movies, music didn’t start to play, ending with him declaring his love and them falling into each others arms. It was much better.
Stuart didn’t say anything at that particular moment, but he was already forming a plan. When he got home he decided to write a letter. He wrote to the head office and told them about the fabulous customer service he experienced in the shop by a certain girl, with the hope that maybe, just maybe it would find its way to her. And it did. Gemma received the email and saw it had the senders details on, so she emailed him to thank you. And the rest they say is history. Only is this case its just the begging, because Stuart and Gemma have a fabulous winter wedding planned, that I am thrilled to be apart of.
Happy Monday x
Some nights out are Ok, some are fab, and some are the kind you meet the man your one day going to marry.Katie experienced the latter. On a night out with friends she saw Morgan, she approached him, they talked and went their separate ways. A few months later fate had them meet again. This time Morgan approached Katie, they talked, but since have not gone their separate ways. They are living life together, and will next week seal their love with I DO!
I met Morgan and Katie for the engagement session at the stables where Katie keeps Rimmy. We were keeping our fingers crossed for nice weather and it didn’t disappoint. Being at the stables we were able to get Rimmy in a few shots as well, who wasn’t t0o keen to be photographed, but then warmed up for a couple (with the promise of an apple).
When you get around Morgan and Katie, you can see why they are together. Why they are getting married. They melt into one another with ease, their laughter comes naturally and they take darn good photographs! I am SO excited to be documenting their wedding in one week, I know its going to be phenomenal ;-) x
Happy Friday x
