I love it when couples chose a meaningful location for their pre-wedding couples session, and that’s exactly what Fiona (Fi) and Adam did by taking me to Alnmouth Bay on the Northumberland Coast.Read More
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.Read More
I photographed Noor and Callum’s wedding at The Alnwick Garden in Northumberland last year but I photographed their engagement session after the wedding.
Both Noor and Callum have hectic schedules and live outside of Newcastle, so trying to find a time to shoot when they were both free, and in the North East, while I was available was tricky. After pencilling in a few dates that we subsequently had to cancel we simply ran out of time to squeeze in the session before their wedding.
Undeterred we booked in a post-wedding session this January.Read More
Angela and Dave joined me at Tynemouth Priory the coast just outside of Newcastle for their pre-wedding session. The air was crisp as the sun started to go down and we hoped for an interesting sunset.Read More
I’d far rather discover a new location for a couples session as I think it helps put them at ease and it gets my creative brain whirring. Izzy and Rob chose the Havannah Nature reserve, which is where they walk their dog. Eze became the star of the show, photobombing our shots and posing like a boss!Read More
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. Tynemouth Outdoor Pool can be found hewed out of the cliff face above Tynemouth Longsands and is a prominent local landmark for all the wrong reasons.Read More
When I put a call out asking for newly engaged couples to experiment with an alternative couples shoot in the Ouseburn area of Newcastle I couldn't have gotten a more perfect couple than Harry and Stacie.
I knew the shoot would go well when they rocked up to the Quayside in Doc Martins, a leather jacket, a Harrington jacket and a nose ring.
They got it.Read More
I'm always equally excited and nervous when I am photographing photographers. Jessica and Matthew are talented photographers in their own right, working at Jessica Holloway Photography, so I pulled out all the creative stops for their forest hike engagement session. We did Brenizer shots, used manual lenses, smoke bombs, prisms and even brought along the dog!Read More
