A Lake District Engagement

Best Engagement photography Lake District, Cumbria

This was a dream of a shoot for me. I love beautiful places and so when Joss and Alex asked me if I’d travel up to the Lake District for their engagement shoot, I was super excited. Joss had already done much of the hard work for me and had scouted a couple of great locations that had everything you could want. We were to explore the banks of the lake by rowboat, and would stop off wherever we fancied. There’s really nothing as peaceful and relaxing as drifting across a beautifully still lake without a breath of wind in the air and no one else in sight. I’m so envious that Joss and Alex get to enjoy this beautiful place every day. I’m definitely coming back as soon as I can.

We had a great afternoon together and enjoyed it so much that we decided it would be pretty amazing to watch the sunrise the next morning from one of the hills overlooking the lake. Words can’t really describe how pretty it was. Undoubtably well worth missing a bit of sleep for and hiking up a hill in the dark! Joss and Alex, thanks – you were amazing! I can’t wait for your wedding in 2015!
