It’s a sunny Saturday in late July and I’m waiting at a lovely cafe in Dunlop Bridge for a lovely newly engaged couple to arrive for their engagement shoot. I’ve never photographed here before but it is a gorgeous location, the kind you imagine in a small Lancashire village, green leafy trees, a slowly flowing stream, old brick built buildings with cyclists and walkers enjoying their day.
Anna and Nigel arrive slightly nervous just like most couples not sure what to expect as it’s not every day you get your photos taken. We head to the first location and talk about their wedding plans. I love hearing about different couples day’s, that every wedding isn’t the same.
Dunlop Bridge has a beautiful stream and fields the perfect location to do a couples shoot. Romantic scenery and a wonderful couple always help. Anna and Nigel relax into the shoot and we get some great photos. It’s so exciting to mark a part of someone's lives with photos, to remember and to share with their family and future generations it’s one of my favourite, if not my favourite part of taking photos.
I can’t wait to photograph their wedding in February, but for now here are some of my favourite photos from the day.
