Jenny and Mike’s Just Us Shoot
Jenny and Mike’s Just Us shoot last September was possibly one of my favourites of the year. The pair had decided they wanted their shoot at a place that meant something to them, so they settled on the Cornish coastal village of Looe, where Mike used to holiday as a child, and where they go to celebrate the new year.
Because Looe is east facing, I tentatively suggested a sunrise shoot, in the hope we might catch some gorgeous morning light. The problem was, this meant a 6am meet up. Anyone who knows me will know I’m not a morning person (it’s a bit of a joke in my family, avoid talking to Becky until she’s been awake for at least an hour!), but for Jenny and Mike this actually meant a 3am start! I could hardly believe it when they enthusiastically agreed, but actually it was perfect, because aside from a few local fishermen, we were the only ones about.
We started at the harbour with some silhouette shots of the pair against a sunrise sky, before heading up the coastal path towards Talland Bay. Despite a little rain, we had a fab time getting to know each other a little better.
Mike told me all about his almost disastrous proposal, he’d arranged exclusive access to the aquarium where they’d had their first date. He was halfway through the proposal when a security alarm started going off, for what felt like forever! Of course, Jenny didn’t care and the rest, as they say, is history.
Jenny and Mike are tying the knot at Upton Barn this spring, and having got to know them a little better on their Just Us shoot, I really can’t wait to be a part of their special day.
