Curbar Edge Derbyshire Engagement Shoot - Hannah & Tom

This isn't usually what I do. I'm not the sort of photographer who spends a lot of time on portraits. They disrupt weddings to much (in my personal opionion) whilst a newlywed couple should be enjoying the time spent with family.

And I don't actively persuade people to book an engagement shoot. Sometimes I'll suggest it if the couple are really nervous, but I see it as something completely separate to wedding photography.

But at the same time, I wanted to push myself out of my comfort zone... to do something different.

So I ran an engagement shoot competition to see what would happen. In the end I was so overwhelmed by the response that I ended up picking three couples to work with. This is just one of them.

Curbar Edge is a beautiful location overlooking Derbyshire's Peak District

Being a very peaky area, it's just one of several locations that does this! Hannah & Tom were such a great easygoing couple to work with. The weather was windy, a little bit rainy, with the occasional ray of beautiful evening light (and even a rainbow). We worked through loads of ideas and the whole shoot was great fun.
