But I digress…I’ve talked before about how I started out as a family photographer, but that wedding photography is where my heart is. I’m always on the look out for opportunities to shoot with others, make links and get some primo shooting experience. A styled shoot ticks so many boxes! When I saw that Jo and Jenny from The Alternatives had put together a double shoot in a single day at Jervaulx Abbey, I just knew I had to be there. I’ll blog part two (a Grecian Gardens theme – S W O O N) next week, but first, let me tell you all about part one.
Rory And BeckyBoth the couples modelling for us during the shoot day are real couples. Rory and Becky here hail from Derbyshire too (all the best folks do, duck). They have no modelling experience, like most people who are getting married and I thought they just oozed cool from the moment I met them. Their connection as a couple was incredible. How many couples do you know who could gaze lovingly at each other for a whole day?! During a normal wedding I like to whisk the happy couple off for 20 minutes to nail their couples portraits, so this was such a treat.
Kickass SuppliersThis shoot wouldn’t have been possible without this amazing team of inspiring vendors. They’re all super duper friendly and talented. All links are clicky, so if you’re looking for that certain something for your wedding I’m sure they’d love to hear from you.
