Emily & Steve – A Digbeth Engagement Shoot

The beauty of being a wedding photographer in Birmingham is that we don’t have to look far for those gritty urban backdrops that a lot of our clients love, especially for their engagement session.

Our studio is based at The Custard Factory in Digbeth, just outside the city centre, and we can just head out in any direction and stumble upon all the stuff I love – colours, textures, lines, angles, natural frames and character.

Emily & Steve get married next week at Moxhull Hall and opted for the urban shoot for their engagement shoot. We explored the backstreets of Digbeth as the light was fading. I’m sure they won’t mind me saying that they’re not super-comfortable having their photo taken, but that’s a good reason why we do the engagement shoot. Hopefully, they’ll love their photos and realise that making photos isn’t anything to stress about and can actually be fun, but ultimately I hope clients will trust me to make the best possible photos on their wedding day. Come next Thursday, I’ll be ready to rock it 🙂

Here are a few of my faves from the e-shoot…
