A little while ago I posted on my Facebook page a small offer looking for couples who wanted to have a post-wedding portrait session in the Lake District. Several couples replied who were up for the adventure. Alex & Ash were one of those couples!
I had previously hiked up Raven Crag a few weeks before, even took a gorgeous landscape of the crag, and all I could think about was how amazing the area would be for a Post Wedding Portrait Session. On the day of the shoot, the weather was horrible! and sadly we didn't head up the crag itself as it was covered in the cloud and the rain was horrible, but in the dry areas, we managed to capture some amazing portraits which included the crag in the background... Which might even be better than being on top of it!
"We met 6 years ago at Pizza express. Ash was a chef and I was a waitress. I won ash over by baking him cookies every Monday night that we worked together because the way to his heart was through his stomach.. with chocolate."
"We got engaged on our one year anniversary and had our son 6 months after this. After that life got busy and we could never justify spending so much on a wedding. So we finally tied the knot 4 years after getting engaged in August last year. We wanted to keep costs down and make the day special to us so we didn’t tell anyone and got hitched at the registry office in Carlisle. Then we had a party in November at the Halston for all our friends and family to celebrate with us."
"We never got many pictures outside on our wedding day because it was pouring down the whole day so when we saw Josh asking if anyone wanted to get adventurous in the Lake District in their wedding gear we jumped at the chance. I’ve followed Josh’s page for a while and always loved his photos so I was really excited to go out with him. It was such a fun day and the pictures are so beautiful and worth the aching legs and hips the day after"
If you would like a Post Wedding Portrait Session, Or for myself to photograph your Elopement or Wedding. Then please do get in touch and let’s go for an adventure!
Good to see you getting some access to the back side of Thirlmere, it’s been a source of frustration to me how long that road was (is?) closed.
