Last year I met this amazing couple whilst on holiday in Mexico with my fella. Having bumped into Rob and Lauren a few times (mainly at the pool bar!) we decided to go in search of some sea turtles together at nearby Akumal Bay. This was the first of a number of adventures together that holiday; getting caught in a tropical rainstorm, visiting Chichen Itza, swimming in a huge underground Cenote, partying in Coco Bongo’s and jumping off a catamaran in what can only be described as a life-nappy! It was inevitable that we were all to stay in touch once back home in the UK and have since met up regularly for meals out, weekend visits and to generally have a good old laugh.
I was therefore very touched when Lauren phoned me up about a secret project (more on that later!) and asked me to photograph some natural portraits of them at Rob’s family farm in Macclesfield, Cheshire. We met up in June 2012 on a gorgeous yet slightly overcast day, perfect conditions for natural light location photography!!! We had a fabulous time exploring the farm, that one day, Rob may well inherit. It really is a beautiful place with rustic barns, rolling hills and staggered reservoirs. We were occasionally joined by the farm Labrador, who at one point dug up soil which covered Rob and Lauren whilst they sat under a beautiful old oak tree, we couldn’t stop laughing!
I absolutely love the images I was able to capture for them that day and hope you do too? I adore photographing people in the great outdoors and letting their personalities and relationships shine, and somewhere so personal just melts my heart. I like to imagine these two sitting under that same old oak tree together when they are old and grey and very, very happy still.
