So this meeting started very strangely indeed. I get an email as normal for a wedding photographer, I go through the motions as normal. This includes me suggesting meeting up to grab a drink, I also add that I will be down Colchester soon so I don’t mind traveling. Well, it turns out that these two lovely peeps are currently living in Australia! So as it happens, I did mind traveling that far for a coffee. Skype calls are the best though! They save a flight too. How exciting that I work in such an amazing industry. One that allows me to meet such great people. Shout out to Sam and Louise for the shout out to these two! Big Love!

A+S had to come to England to arrange their wedding in native Essex, so I headed down to meet them, grab lunch then shoot a portrait sesh. I hadn’t been to Colchester before but I was happy to arrive to find a gorgeous town, rich in history with a gorgeous castle, a huge water tower and a superb pub, The Tree Wise Monkeys, where we ate. After some awesome food and a good chat, we had a stroll around the town and ended up in Castle Park. A beauty of a park with plenty to do and a great big Castle in it too. Now, I should have been all over that castle but something far more exciting had caught my eye! As a Trex fan, I spotted the boating lake and wanted nothing more than to ‘Ride a White Swan’. A+S were keen and the rest is history. Great shoot with great peeps!!
