Whenever I see a new message from Carrie or Amanda, I light up. I absolutely love these two to bits!

This winter, Amanda contacted me on Facebook asking if I would consider coming up from Harrogate to do a family shoot. At first I was a little confused as to who she meant by ‘family’. When she informed me that it would her, Carrie and Tilly… the dog… I was both amused and excited.

Since photographing their crazy festival wedding in September, we’ve got on like a house on fire. Perhaps a ‘barn on fire’ would be more appropriate, following a certain smoke bomb incident.

It was so lovely to catch up with the two of them after the wedding. Carrie and Amanda live on the most beautiful farm just north of Durham, so we took Tilly for an evening walk across the fields for the shoot. We even set off smoke bombs that we had left over from the wedding!

Carrie and Amanda are two of the most colourful people I’ve had the pleasure to photograph (especially Carrie with her pink hair!). It’s always a guaranteed fun time whenever I see them them.
