A couple of months ago I got a call from John asking if I was available to do a photoshoot as a birthday gift for his wife. We had a conversation about the photoshoot he had in mind and he told me that he wanted to surprise his wife, because they had been discussing about booking a photographer for a while. He described how they laughed at how the only photographs they have of each other were dodgy selfies taken on their camera phone, and the only professional photographs they have were from their wedding day that was eight years ago.
With that in mind, he wanted to book a professional photoshoot so they could have some beautiful new photographs that would reflect where they are in life now. What a wonderful gesture for your partner for her birthday, right?
I met the lovely Lindsay and John the following week outside the Red Lion Inn in Grantchester. The couple had brought along their two chocolate labradors for a walk in Grantchester Meadows, which was the beautiful location for their shoot. John had mentioned that it was their favourite place to visit and take the dogs for a walk. I could understand why with the gentle, meandering river Cam and open fields, it was a peaceful setting that provided a beautiful place for a relaxing photoshoot.
With the touch of autumn still around us and its colours lingering on, I captured Lindsay and John as they walked their dogs followed by a few formal portraits under the colourful canopy of autumn leaves. We returned to the Red Lion for drinks and to rest our feet after a lovely end to the shoot.
