Norwich Engagement shoot

I’m not even sure how this came about really. A Norwich Engagement shoot of massive proportions. Becky and Tommy booked me a while back and as we chatted over a beer we briefly discussed ‘Pre-wedding’ shoots. I mentioned that they usually take place somewhere that means something to them and they could call me up to book it in anytime. After another beer, we parted and I awaited their call.

We met up for a wedding chat at The Unthank and the ‘pre-wedding’ shoot was mentioned. They told me that they loved the beach but as they were going to have their Wedding day next to the beach they felt that they wanted something different for their Pre-Wedding shoot. We talked some more about wedding plans and ordered another beer when suddenly It dawned on us that we all loved this pub! That was that then. Pub Crawl Photoshoot! We booked an evening and I plotted a route, taking in some of Becky and Tommy’s favourite drinking spots.

The evening was warm and we started in the pub we had met in previously, The Unthank Arms. The next stop was The York for an unexpected game of ping pong and a view into what was to come after stumbling into a party full of people a little worse for wear. We strolled to the William and Florence for cocktails and got some cheesy chips for the walk to the Black horse. We arrived and got straight into the outdoor Jenga in what is a belting beer garden!

A surprise meeting of photographers happened at The Black Horse, this was in the form of James Powell. A superb photographer who I am looking forward to working with later this month. He blazed in sporting a corker of a shirt! Flamingos I think? Anyway, we supped up and stumbled up the road to our final stop. This final stop was Becky and Tommy’s home ground. The Temple, a brilliant pub, a proper pub. We ended the night with pool table antics, huge laughs and of course Tequilas!

Fun times ahead! Get in touch and let’s create something awesome!

Lake District Engagement

Well, what can I say about this?

A little bit of backstory. I grew up in Lancashire and spent heaps of time in the Lake District with my family. I moved to Norfolk when I was a child and always looked back to the hills. They somehow make me feel peaceful and safe. Odd, I know, but nevertheless, this place is the one for me. No desert islands, no hot sunny beaches. Give me the fells and the lakes and the rivers any day.

I return to the Lake District as often as I can and with a set of books passed down to me by my late Grandfather, I explore. I made sure my wife loved the fells before I proposed to her. We climbed to the top of Helvellyn via Striding edge where I got down on one knee. Even our Son is named after my favourite mountain there. When my wedding competition winners, Bella and Dexter said they wanted to shoot their pre-wedding session in the Lakes I was stoked! Like ‘Dream come true’ stoked.

A Lake District Engagement shoot.

Enough of my ramblings, on with the shoot. Bella and Dexter met me in Langdale, a little piece of history and heaven wrapped up in one valley. History because of climbers and Everest and more on that here. Heaven because, well, you’ll see below and also in my next post. Bella and Dexter met me in the Old Dungeon Ghyll climber bar. We chatted through their wedding, had some lovely beer and sorted a route to walk for their photos.

After beers and lot of laughs/wedding chat, we hopped in my car and made our way up a small pass to Blea Tarn. This is a gorgeous spot, a small, wild Tarn flanked by fells with a very famous view. We parked up and made for the water. There and back again with a wander on the hills and that was that. I wish I could shoot up here more, it’s a home from home and an incredible place to be and I am beyond grateful my job allows me such adventures.

I am not an academic man and my writing skills are ropey at best so I will leave you with the photos. If you want to read a thorough and infinitely more charming account of this place, Wainwright is your man. In the meantime, enjoy the view.

Fun times ahead! Get in touch and let’s create something awesome!
