I love engagement shoots, it’s a lovely chilled out way to spend a hour or two having a laugh while creating something together.
I met Jess and James at The Ship and Mitre in Liverpool, it was a special place for them as that is where they had their first date, the place where the story of Jess and James really began, so it seemed fitting to start the shoot there. After a catch up and drink in bar we made our way out to explore the city and see which bits of the beautiful urban Landscape we could incorporate into the shoot. We were spoilt for choice! Finding wonderful Liverpudlian street art along our way, including a piece by the anonymous graffiti artist Banksy and of course it would be rude to not incorporate the infamous Liver Buildings into a photo or two. As we made our way to The Docks and the sun grew lower in the sky we stumbled upon a small fair ground, so made use of the bright and playful backgrounds before grabbing another sneaky drink from one of the sea front bars. We then took it upon ourselves to hunt down the prettiest Lamb Banana we could find, ending the evening shoot by taking some snaps as the Seagulls flew low over our heads while sun shone across water and then making our way home.
Jess and James were such a pleasure to shoot, they booked the engagement shoot as they thought that they might be nervous in front of the camera on their wedding day, but turned out to be complete naturals. Complete naturals at just being themselves with each other, making each other laugh, having nice little snuggles together and just being in love. It was beautiful to capture them doing just that. I’m really looking forward to shooting their wedding next month, it’s going to be an absolute belter!
