I've been trying to write this blog post for weeks.
It's been so hard to find the words to accompany this editorial, simply because these are some of my favourite images for a while. I definitely love what I've been producing for the past 12 months or so, but sometimes everything in a day is just so perfect, it leaves me feel giddy inside for days. This shoot was one of those. Ione and I had wanted to go back to Caerhays Castle for a shoot ever since we shot there last year. So, when the day finally came and we were faced with torrential rain, it broke our hearts a little bit. But we powered on through, and shot in my home studio (those images are coming soon!) and rearranged our shoot for another day.
I'm so glad that we did.
After producing and shooting a lot of very big editorials with large teams, we had a craving for something a bit simpler: just Ione, a model, and myself. You may recognise Elisha, our model for this shoot, from some images I did with her in November last year!
When the shoot day arrived, it was sunny, warm, and as you can see, the flowers were out in full force in the gardens. I don't think I've ever been so happy in my entire life!
These images come with no real concept, no real story, and no real ambition. They're just us creating, and have a tun of fun whilst doing it. I truly hope that you love these images as much as I do!
On a totally seperate note, I'm currently taking books for commercial photoshoots for August onwards, so if you're a brand or business looking to have new imagery captured for your brand, get in touch! I'd love to hear from you.
