After a few month of chatting to these guys as they travelled around South America it was great to have them back in the country and finally meet up on a delightfully ‘Yorkshire’ day for their Leeds pre-wedding photography session. By ‘Yorkshire’ I obviously mean grey and drizzly which I’m sure had novelty value for them if nothing else! By ‘pre-wedding photography session’ I obviously mean a couple of beers and a wander round town getting to know each other a bit so it’s all a little more relaxed come the wedding.I actually really enjoy having something challenging like a rainy day to work with, it’s good for the creativity! Johnny used to live in Leeds, but left ten years ago, which coincidentally is around the time I arrived here – at least I think it’s a coincidence! It was interesting seeing how it had changed since he’d left.Spent a fun afternoon ducking in and out of doorways and carparks trying not to get too soggy, I love how the photos came out, particularly the window lit ones towards the end of the set, taken in the Trinity Kitchen food court hidden behind a taco van so the security guards didn’t kick us out haha, I love finding little patches of light in places where you’re not really supposed to be taking photos, keeps me on my toes!Really looking forward to their wedding in Cracoe, which they have now assured me is in Yorkshire and not Poland, which I’m pretty pleased about! Will be the first wedding I’ve shot where the celebrants are all four of the couple’s brothers, sounds like it’s going to be a right laugh!I’m fairly certain not very many people at all read all the way to the end of these, and my Google-juice-expert friend says I have to write three hundred words, which thanks to this paragraph I’ve now done. If you’re still reading do comment and let me know!If you’re interested in having a Leeds pre-wedding session with me (rain or shine!) then get in touch!
Charlie and Chris drove for two hours to hang out in a car park with me.I reckon it was time well spent!Can you believe there are people who don’t even have a favourite car park?!
Had a lovely wander around Leeds with these guys, despite the completely bipolar weather we’re having at the moment! They’ve been married for years which goes to show couple sessions shouldn’t just be a prenuptial thing! Lots of love and laughter, making my job almost too easy!
Spent a beautifully sunny Sunday in Leeds with these three, started in the Belgrave then took a wander up past the arena to the university and back. Had a lot of fun with them, excited to be shooting their wedding next week!
Spent a great weekend in London, got to hang out with a load of photographer friends, saw the Radical Eye exhibition at Tate Modern, and met up with Leigh and Emmerson ahead of their wedding, for a wander round the south bank and a beer or three.
