Helen and Stuart’s wedding isn’t until September 2018 but we thought we’d fit in a couple of engagement shoots well before their big day. Nine times out of ten my couples, Helen and Stuart included, say to me they don’t like being photographed. It’s pretty usual to feel this way though. I mean how many of us sign up to Storm Modelling Agency and hit the Catwalk? Very few. Most folks just don’t have that kind of confidence or feel that photogenic. So a week after Helen and Stuart’s shoot when the postie delivered a beautiful card, with a huge grass munching cow on the front, saying, ‘ To our dearest, greatest photographer YVONNE! (EVER!) Thank you so much for the engagement shoot pics, you’ve done a great job of making us look not too bad!!!’ (By the way Helen and Stuart said this not the grass munching cow) it made me feel really happy to know that once again I’ve created images that folks love when the idea of the shoot had felt rather daunting.

Here are the highlights from their shoot, featuring the awesome Millie, the teeny poodle I got to hug while taking pictures because she can’t see and was crying for mama and papa, and Chewy and BB the looney tune crazy dive bombers. It was a lovely day, with lovely weather, in a lovely location, with a lovely couple and their lovely dogs.
