Hello! Sorry for the radio silence. Wedding season happened so blogging didn’t.
I moved from Birmingham to Brighton over a year ago + now it’s hard to imagine living anywhere else. So I was beyond excited when Amie + Jam agreed to travel from the little town next to my old hometown to shoot with me in (my new hometown of…) Brighton. They’d never ever been to Brighton before (!!) so they spent the day checking out the ice cream + watching the World Cup final before we met up. It was so awesome to hear the familiar Black Country twang at the beach!
I absolutely love doing Brighton couples photoshoots a few weeks before the wedding. Spending a couple of hours with the people I’ll be photographing makes it such a breeze to create portraits with genuine energy on the wedding day… not to mention grabbing a few non-drunken-selfies in the process.
Amie + Jam are getting married at the amazing Dewsall Court. I don’t know why I wrote that in the future tense. I’ve actually already photographed Amie + Jam’s wedding but blogging is basically a full-time job so you’ll have to give my time traveling sentences. Anyway… it was absolutely amazing + I can’t wait to share those photos with you soon.
In the meantime, here’s my first engagement session in Brighton since moving here + a few words from Amie + Jam on their engagement shoot:
“We’ve just sat down and looked at them and they are honestly AMAZING, I really don’t understand how you’ve taken two very awkward people who don’t like touching and made it look like we actually like each other haha… we are incredibly grateful and you are seriously talented, can’t wait for you to be part of the day with us in a couple of weeks – we’re going to have the best time!”
Amie + Jam.
Fun. Relaxed. Unposed.
