I’m over the moon to share this amazing Thurstaston Beach engagement shoot with you. Personally, I think it looks more like Hawaii but I’m happy to say Thurstaston is a bit closer. We were a bit concerned about the weather as it rained earlier in the day but the forecast was dry for the evening. […]

Some photographers like to manage very carefully what their clients wear. I’m much more relaxed about it but try to give some ideas just to help you out if you’re worried about it. So, these are my guidelines. This is what I want my couples to know and think about before their shoot.

Last summer I met up with Donna and Andy in Derbyshire for a Matlock Bath engagement photoshoot. This lovely couple are super sweet and totally chilled out. They didn’t mind where we went for the shoot and I always try to make it straightforward for my clients so we went for Matlock Bath as its about halfway between us. Andy also quite likes his fish so we thought we could check out the aquarium while we were there.

Back in July I met up with Lisa and Tom in Liverpool for their engagement session ahead of their September wedding. It was a gorgeous evening and these two are so fun to photograph. They are the sort of couple that you never have to encourage to smile as they are always laughing their heads off and having a great time. Honestly they are that cute together!

CJ and Jeremy are the cutest couple. They were married this June in Singapore but I caught up with them in Leeds for their engagement shoot back in March. They met at Leeds university where CJ studied law and Jeremy medicine. It seemed perfect to have their Leeds engagement shoot in the city that will always be special to them.

The weather doesn’t always co-operate in this country. In this case it was particularly difficult with sunshine before and after our shoot but wind and rain during. Typical! However, Vicky and Ben were fantastic and did a wonderful job of smiling through the cold raindrops.

So maybe the title should read an engagement shoot in Cheshire that features a cat or two, but I couldn’t resist.

These two are so gorgeous and their wedding was to die for. I can’t wait to show it to you but first I thought I had better take you back to June and share their pre-wedding shoot. We met on a super hot day at the Palm House in Sefton Park.
