Late Summer Sea Spray

When Georgie contacted me to ask if I would put together a bespoke shoot as a birthday present for her Mamma of course I said yes! I absolutely love taking photographs for people and although I hadn't done a shoot like this before, I am always up for a new venture. 
We decided to meet up at big Godrevy on Cornwalls north coast during the golden hour and couldn't have been more fortunate with the beautiful hazy weather. They brought a picnic with goodies and drinks and we got comfy in the dunes whilst I bustled around them and snapped photographs. 
I try to keep shoots as natural and fun as possible so that the smiles in the photographs are real so I followed them about the beach and we all got in the sea for a paddle, avoiding splashes from those rogue waves. Georgie and Diana were a delight to shoot, they were fun and up for anything and came fully prepared with glorious hats! 
What a beautiful idea for a present, a mother daughter shoot with a bundle of lovely images to take away and keep forever. I think I shall definitely put together a solid package and make this a thing! I had lots of fun :)

Isaac & Hannah's Engagement, Coverack Cornwall

George and I were so thrilled when Hannah and Isaac contacted us regarding photographing their local September wedding next year. George went to school with them and we were so happy when we found out they had got engaged as they were teenhood sweethearts and one of the loveliest couples we knew. 
We drove to the village next door to us, Coverack for their engagement photo's and chatted on the terrace of a tiny cafe on the sea front about their exciting plans for next year and watching the bluey green hues in the bay and listening to the gulls. I love my job. 
Coverack is one of my favourite villages and absolutely stunning, so we were spoiled with photo opportunities but couldn't do everything because there was so much! We walked up to picturesque Chynalls point past all the colourful cottages to snap away in the misty glow of the summer afternoon and capture the amazing bond between these two incredible people. 
Hannah and Isaac were delightfully adventurous and we all got splashed by sea spray and rogue waves! Even with soaked jeans and teeshirts, they kept on smiling and we didn't notice the hours slipping by :) 
It was an absolute honour to photograph this lovely couple and especially at our shared home of the Lizard Peninsula. It's not often we get to photograph an engagement so close to home! I'm really grateful for the opportunity in my life to capture the love between people, especially people we know and have seen grow together!
