Couple Photos in Vivary Park Taunton with Samuel and Alice

One day I will always remember is how I met Samuel and Alice. I was out for the day just getting some air, and taking photos. Learning how to use my camera. While out, was approached by a couple about my age. They had noticed me and my camera in the park. I was asked if would simply take a photo of them both. Now when you ask an at the time new and aspiring photographer for a photo, you get a photo! And you still will! My day evolved into taking COUPLE PHOTOS  in Vivary Park!

An impromptu and unplanned photo shoot…

I asked Alice and Samuel to follow me. We walked over to a hedged area, this was my chosen backdrop. Now because I had said yes to this, I was on the spot! I had never taken photos of a couple before so I was winging it. Asking them to stand close and put their arms around each other, I lifted my camera and started to click. Now by this time, they where both giggling and laughing in hysterics. They couldn’t believe what was happening. This simple photo they had asked for, was now a couple shoot! The fact that it was so impromptu was what made it work! I didn’t even have to try!

Alice and Samuel spent for minutes giggling and laughing, and I spent 4 minutes to taking 40 images that I will never delete. I sent them a handful of these images via FACEBOOK and they absolutely loved them! It really taught me that you don’t need to really plan a shoot with loads of detail, although they are good, but the most random situations can lead to the best results!

But wait…… There is more!!!

Lets fast forward time 6 months. Alice sends me an email to CONTACT ME about a very important situation! Something that came out of the blue, and yet was so exciting! Alice and Samuel had got engaged and wanted to hire me for their WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY! I could not believe what I was reading! I replied in a heartbeat saying yes! Samuel somwhere along the line had dropped to one knee and asked Alice to marry him! Who would have known bumping into a pair of love birds in a local park would have led to this?!

Alice and Samuel Get Married…

Alice and Samuel hired me half day, and the wedding took place just outside of Oxford. I remember driving up that morning. It was raining, and foggy. The m5 and m4 was so gloomy. On arrival I met with Samuel and his family, or the boys! Samuel & Alice had planned to see each other before the ceremony. To see the look on their faces again like this took me back to being in that park. They hadn’t changed one bit. Still laughing, still giggling like a couple who only met last week. It really is mad how things can come out of nowhere. Congratulations Samuel & Alice!
