Chaz & Donminique’s Durham Engagement shoot
A few weeks ago, I was contacted by an awesome couple who are over in the UK while Chaz is studying in Durham. They are from the amazing New York City and are getting married over there later this year. With Durham being such a stunning place, they wanted to capture their love over here before they travel back to NYC.
We started in the university halls – possibly the most stunning set of university halls in the UK. Durham Castle is a massive change from my student digs – the 60’s built Goodricke College in York. Construction on the building started in 1072 no less! It’s all a very stunning place. As it goes, the university have just announced that there are more spaces that can be used for civil ceremonies, which means more weddings and more cool photo opportunities!
There are so many little places with amazing light in the main courtyard – we just had to utilise them. We got some funny looks from the passing workmen, but as ever the images are what makes it worth while… I don’t mind getting funny looks for lying on the ground and hiding in the trees!
From there, we carried on to the super iconic Durham Cathedral, built in 1093! We didn’t get to go inside and the roof is currently getting a little TLC but it’s still a great backdrop for images.
We carried on to some of my more secret locations around the area that have cracking floors, walls and the odd notice board for some creative shooting.
As you can tell, this pair loved the walk and just being in each other’s company. I know they love the photos and I hope you do too. I’m still waiting for my invite to shoot over in NYC!
Would you like to see more engagement shoots up on the blog? I don’t share them as much as I should do! Comment down below and let me know.
Have a great week!
