George & Sophie: Lewes - Couple Session
Sophie & George
Over the Sussex Downs - Couple Session
Photography, above all, for me was always a way of capturing life around me and the stories of people I know. It's deeply personal. So it was a joy and an honour to capture the gentle and strong connection between George and Sophie. Whilst I haven't known them for very long, I certainly feel they are now my extended family. George is my boyfriend John's little brother. The brothers have a very loving relationship and looking at these photographs over with John was such a compliment. I could see a joy in his face, as he kept pointing out moments between the two "That's such a George expression!", "He loves her so much & you can see it so well", and "He's making her laugh, he's just doing what George does." And it was so true. I'm so glad I could capture those two in their natural state together. I love these people and it was so much fun doing this session with them. Sophie was quite nervous beforehand and it was so sweet watching George do such a wonderful job at making her laugh, relax and have a fun with it. As a photographer, I care deeply about my clients feeling relaxed and comfortable around me. Not only because it makes for the best photographs, but also because I want people to have an day of adventure and to be able to look back at their photographs and remember what a lovely time they had. I take it upon myself to make it the most easy, relaxed and pleasant experience. It's my job to remind people that I'm there to find and preserve the most natural moments between them, their most beautiful selves. These two made it a breeze - there were giggles and smiles all over.
This was a truly beautiful day. We ambled up above the cliffs overlooking the town of Lewes, which sits surrounded by the South Downs National Park. Around us were little woodlands and a golf course (yes, there's a golf course on top of the cliffs!). We walked around, watched the sunset and I got them to roll around the grass. What's not to love? Scroll down and enjoy these two beautiful people and their sweet love.
Thank you, George and Sophie, for our little adventure!
