engagements and couples

natalie + ify • couple shoot

I don't think I've smiled so much whilst editing...EVER. Hanging out with these two was a total joy. Their smiles are infectious and their chat is hysterical... sometimes I think 'is this really my job?!' I'm one lucky lady.

Can't wait to share their wedding day with you next week... look out for it!

So I feel these images require words. You know when you get something in your head and it won't go away. This shoot was one of those things. I'm a lover of lots of American photographers who's regular shooting locations are places like Death Valley, Nevada or the Appalachian Mountains... you know the type of grand American landscapes that just blow you away? I've had road trips through these places and felt totally in awe. Since becoming a wedding photographer I've often thought 'if only I could shoot there...' Then. I took a trip to Glencoe. I had passed through here many a time in my 'pre-wedding-photography' days, and yeah I suppose I thought it was pretty amazing but this time I saw something really different. I saw how glorious sunshine can turn into mean moody skies in a matter of minutes. I saw the clouds come in and the rain create a mistiness that felt almost eerie. It was just spectacular. Come in Lisa & Stewart. Lisa and Stewart are one of the loveliest couples. Due to get married this July they wanted a pre-wed shoot but we had yet to confirm the location. With this idea in my head I decided to put it to them. It would mean a 2 hour drive EACH WAY! and a whole load of their time. But thankfully they were up for it and totally trusted me. So with lots of great chat and chocolate munching we headed up to Glencoe in the glorious sunshine one Sunday evening. This is the result. I feel really proud of these photos. I've taken a few risks in them and not stuck to what's expected of me. I kinda like it.
