Rob & Elizabeth: A Chester Engagement Shoot


I've said this before but I LOVE love.  And one of the best parts of this job is spending time with so much joy on a regular basis, with couples and family who just radiate their adoration for each other.  Rob & Elizabeth embody this joy so perfectly and I spent a gorgeous grey afternoon wandering around the beautiful Roman walls of Chester with them, doing my damndest to bottle it to the very best of my ability. 

They initially got in touch with me about photographing their April 2017 King Street Townhouse Wedding in November of this year by way of my mentor Jonny Draper.  Jonny thought we would be a great fit and I was so eager to shoot at this stunningly chic new wedding venue in Manchester city centre.  So when we had our Skype date and got on so well, I knew it was meant to be!

We met up in front of the famed Chester Grosvenor Hotel righ tin the heart of city and, after a quick drink, Elizabeth took us on a mini walking tour of her amazing home city.  We explored the Roman Ampitheatre and walked up to the clock, we found little parks and cathedral ruins and walked along the river.  In the 2 hours we hung out, there was an easy comfortability and I was so inspired by this beautiful couple's relaxed excitement about each other.  Rob kept things light with some pretty terrible jokes and Elizabeth filled me in on their unbelievable wedding plans and by the end of the meeting, I felt like I'd known them for years.  I am so so excited to photograph these two in just a few short months, here's a peek at what we got up to! Enjoy! x
