Our couples continually amaze us with how bloody cool they are!

Get this… Fran & Dave LOVE Devon. They escape there whenever they can and get up early to go surfing before taking their dog running on the beach. So it made perfect sense to do their engagement shoot somewhere that means so much to them. And I’m more than happy to head to the beach as often as I can.

The bit where Fran & Dave win bonus points is here… They rented a farmhouse in Devon which has several bedrooms so they asked me if I’d like to bring Evelyne and the boys down to Devon and stay over with them at the farmhouse. And that’s exactly what we did. How cool is that?!

We took photos, went out for meals, took a few more photos, flew a kite on the beach, drank some wine and took more photos as the sun fell in the sky…. Dave even gave Elliott a quick guitar lesson!

I love my job.

Can’t wait for Fran & Dave’s wedding at Birtsmorton Court in a couple of weeks. They’re having a guest book made up from these photos :)

    These images are absolutely stunning – all of them – but I particularly like the jumping one, and the silhouette at the end… inspirational :)

    Awesome – I grew up and spent the first 18 years of my life just a short drive from Saunton. A lovely part of the world and a fantastic place for some engagement shots (as seen here!)
