Colourful Digbeth Same-Sex Engagement Shoot- Birmingham Engagement Shoot

Birmingham is a bloody fantastic place for a Birmingham Engagement Shoot, especially around Digbeth. I met Jo and Heidi at The Custard Factory and had a fab afternoon graffiti hunting. Most of the time pre-wedding shoots or engagement shoots happen in green fields with tall trees and blossoming flowers… and there’s nothing wrong with that! But not for this lovely pair. Jo and Heidi wanted urban cool- so we hit the streets of Digbeth in Birmingham. It rained like cats and dogs all day, but did it dampen our spirits? Did it heck! You know what, it was awesome!

Digbeth- The perfect spot for a Birmingham Engagement Shoot

There’s so many cool backdrops to use in Digbeth- we were absolutely spoilt for choice. We got on like a house on fire and laughed all afternoon- We met up in one of their favourite coffee shops, and chatted about their wedding plans, before running round in the rain looking for awesome street art. I absolutely adored all of the colour and life in Digbeth, it really was the perfect place for a Birmingham engagement shoot.

Putting the world to rights…

Next, we made a pit stop for amazing craft beer at Dig Brew Co., where we sampled some amazing beers, and chatted for hours, putting the world to rights! I love it when meeting a couple feels like an afternoon with old friends. These awesome women were the winners of my free engagement shoot competition at The Unwedding Show in Birmingham in February, and I couldn’t have hoped for lovelier winners!

Fancy booking a Birmingham Engagement Shoot?

If you’re thinking of having an Engagement Shoot, my advice would be to just go for it! They’re a great way for us to get to know each other before your wedding and for you to get comfortable in front of my camera, plus you get some awesome photos, and get to spend an afternoon having a cuddle and a giggle together! I always think it’s nice to go somewhere you like to hangout, so Digbeth was perfect for Heidi and Jo. Where do you fancy for yours? Let me know in the comments!

If you’d like to book a shoot, or talk about your wedding plans, don’t forget you can contact me here. I can’t wait to hear from you!
