I never expected 2020 to turn out like it did. This week I was planning to meet family in Croatia for a well deserved holiday. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I can imagine that right now I would be exploring Dubrovnik with my dad, little sister and my son. But I'm here in Oxford and actually, everything has been ok, despite learning that I am not a very good home schooler!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One thing that I really miss is my work. Unfortunately, most of my couples have had to postpone or cancel their weddings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Some have been able to postpone to another date later in the year while others are waiting in limbo, not knowing if they will be able to get married as planned. This leaves me with a huge gap in my calendar at a time when I am usually busy shooting and editing weddings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So this summer I have decided to offer a variety of photography. including couple shoots. It's a great way to add a little romance into your life, even if you aren't planning a wedding. All my couple's shoots take place outdoors and I will be at safe distance at all times. Get in touch to book!

Do you want to hear something rather romantic? This lovely pair, Marissa and Jared, celebrate their anniversary each year with a photoshoot. And not just any photoshoot, oh no, they make sure they’re always in a different, and very exciting, location. So not only are they celebrating their relationship, but they’re exploring the world as well. I love that idea!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Check out the blog to see more photos from the shoot!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A few summers ago they were in Cuba for their shoot and, more recently, I met up with them for a stroll around Oxford.
Just a little reminder- if you are planning a 2021 wedding, don't delay in booking your vendors. Many of my couples have had to postpone their weddings to prime summer dates next year- so if you like a vendor make sure you book them asap- 2021 is going to be a very busy year and dates are filling up fast!
