When the alarm clock went off at 6am, I was cursing myself for having suggested another dawn shoot on a Sunday! However, it was totally worth the early start to meet up with Kim and Adam for their pre-wedding shoot around the streets of York. After all, there aren’t many times when you get The Shambles to yourself.
So it was that without a tourist in sight we took a tour of York’s historic sights, starting at the city’s most famous street with it’s overhanging timber-framed buildings. We then moved onto the Minster and got some shots in front of what must be the best doors in Yorkshire, before finishing at the city walls (once we’d found a gate that was open!) and a chance to take the chill off in the early morning sunshine.
The other advantage of an early morning shoot is that after all that hard work, there is only one way to finish a pre-wedding shoot and that’s with with a nice cup of Yorkshire tea and a bacon buttie!
I really enjoyed getting to know Kim and Adam. They are so easy going and up for everything I suggested, which makes my job so easy and such a pleasure. I hope they enjoyed the shoot as much as I did.
I came away from meeting these guys with a bounce in my step and feeling totally re-energized for the day ahead - Sunday lie-ins are over-rated!
