Beccie & Chris are a wonderful couple, Beccie is a Cumbria based graphic designer, whose work you can see here. Chris, on the other hand, is a lecturer, who used to work at Whinlatter Forest keeping an eye on all the grounds and the trees, and man… He loves a tree!
They have been together for 18 years and have been married for nearly 10 years, true childhood sweethearts! It wasn’t love at first sight mind, although they were in the same form in their first year of secondary school. As Chris was a “farmer type” and Beccie was deemed a “townie” ended up having their own Romeo and Juliet story. Needless to say, the hostility didn’t last long and slowly their friendship and the relationship grew.
As always we walked and talked a little as not to jump right into the shoot, it’s a great way to calm everyone down find out what they like and don’t like and to get a sense of who they are as a couple. Without doing this these photos just wouldn’t represent the awesome couple that they are. We went through the 5 basic poses that are in every magazine ever and how to smash them out of the park.
From there we let Chris tell us his old stomping ground and we started our adventure! The results are below, and I just adore them! Anyway, check out the photos below and If you would like to have a couples portrait session with myself, or even have me photograph your big day, then please do get in touch.
