Oh. My. God. My face is absolutely aching from laughing and smiling looking back at this epic blackpool engagement shoot!! We had THE BEST time in Blackpool- the Vegas of the North!! Jenny & Chris were amazing- such an incredibly fun, relaxed and adventurous couple, they were willing to try ANYTHING, from jumping and hair-shaking to piggybacks running down Blackpool beach! We had an absolute ball, and were even lucky enough to have perfect weather, no rain and brilliant sunshine- I came away with a red nose to prove it! We trundled round Blackpool seeking out fab, fun little spots to shoot. You know me and my love of colourful street art, so I was right at home amongst the bright backdrops! I loved incorporating nostalgic seaside, graffiti backdrops and even fairground rides.
I LOVE the shots with the seagulls- I think people must have thought we were mental, lying on the floor, chucking bread as THOUSANDS of seagulls descended! It was a bit like a horror film!! Jennie and Chris ROCKED it though.
This super-fun blackpool engagement shoot was part of the Level Up! Workshop with Zo & Liam from ZT Photography, and they were amazing- so much fun and so helpful. Thank you so much to Zo & Liam- I’ll be back for more in the future! Thanks also to the sponsors for the day, digitalab and The Watermelon Design, the The Layton Rakes for coffee and brekkie on the morning, and Bella Italia for the yummy pizza lunch (photography fuel!).
If you are a fun, creative (and maybe a little bit mad) couple looking to inject some fun and adventure into your engagement shoot or wedding day, or are planning your Best Day Ever in sunny Blackpool, I would bloody love to work with you! Colour, craziness and chaos with a little hat-tip to tradition is totally my bag- I love couples who love to laugh, love and party, and are planning a day that’s a little bit different- in fact, the more different the better. If that sounds like you, holler at me here and let’s get planning!
