A spring pre-wedding session in Newcastle with Rachel and Adam

A pre-wedding session is a great time to show of a bit of your personality and your passions. Don't think that you have to pick an iconic location for your couples session. I can capture exciting photographs anywhere and an unusual location can result in unique photographs.

A sunset engagement shoot at the coast with Jessica and Christopher

Using a ruined and rusting outdoor swimming pool as a backdrop for an engagement shoot is an unusual idea, which is why I suggested it as a location to Jessica and Christopher.

A gritty urban couples shoot with Gail & Steve

I photographed Gail and Steve in the Ouseburn area of Newcastle, where I thought that the graffiti would match their urban cool. While drinking in the Cluny there last autumn I mentally filed the area away as one to suggest for my pre-wedding couple shoots. I had photographed a lot of couples in remote rural locations on the Northumberland Coast and Kielder Forest for example, and I wanted to experiment in a more gritty, urban style.
