How to describe Lauren and Nathaniel? First things first – trusting! Shortly after they got engaged, Lauren asked me if I’d take a nice photo of her and Nathaniel, and I came back with a counter offer of a full photo shoot. I’d been considering branching out and offering photography as well as videography, and who better to act as guinea pigs than two of my closest friends who just got engaged? Next thing we knew I had dragged them to Castlewellan Forest Park, where we picked blackberries off the bushes and ate them while walking along.
It took me a while to get into the swing of things – this was my first ever engagement shoot after all, but by the end I had relaxed and was having great craic! It’s hard not to have fun with these two, for every nice pretty photo you see here, there’s two more where they were pulling silly faces and messing around. I don’t think I’ve ever had so much fun on a shoot before!
I’m so excited for these guys getting married next year – they suit each other so well and are a delight to be around. I won’t be taking photos at the wedding though – too busy being a bridesmaid! Thanks Lauren and Nathaniel for such a great shoot!
