  • Angie & Martin

  • When Angie and Martin said they were getting married everyone was thirilled for them.

  • Laura and Ross

  • Congratulations to Laura and Ross on their engagment! We decided to meet for the shoot at one of their favourite locations in Northumberland - Bolam Lake. It was a rather cold and blustery day but Laura and Ross braved the conditions. It wasn't too much of a problem, just a few red noses! [...]
