I am really excited to share these images and what can I say, Connar and Melissa are legends. Such a fun pair to work with on this couples shoot I photographed earlier this year.
We started off in Tentsmuir Forest just a short drive into the countryside from Dundee city centre. They brought their A-game and were really up for trying things and going the extra mile to get the best possible shots we could. Whether it was tightrope walking on logs across ponds, going for those jumps on the beach or just generally clowning around, I think it really paid off for the pictures. The photographs we got were genuinely fun and just as much fun to take.
I think we really managed to capture the happy playfulness that they have together as a couple and at the same time get some really beautiful and romantic moments with the two of them.
After getting our fill of the forest we then headed off to the beach to grab some more shots. It’s great to get in a couple different locations and I love shooting on the beach as it seams to bring out the big kid in people. It gives you so much space and freedom to try things you normally wouldn’t do in a relaxed and natural way. Must be all that sea air.
So if your thinking of having a couples or engagement shoot, I would highly recommend having a think about the type of images you want to capture, as well as the location and outfit choices you make. I am always happy to give couples tips and suggestions as to what to bring to a photo session like this. At the end of the day each one of these things goes along way in helping with the finished product. Not to mention making sure you try to have a blast at the same time. Definitely some of my favourite from this last year.
