Real Couples // A Fashionable Brick Lane Engagement: Chrissy + Sam

Chrissy and Sam initially met through friends in 2014, but at the start it was a slow burn. They had no further contact until four months later when Sam found Chrissy on Facebook. He was about to be a groomsman for his friend and the night before the wedding he stayed up chatting on the phone all night with Chrissy, such that he overslept and was late for duty the next day. Since then they have been inseparable.

Real Couples // London Jewel Tone Wedding on a Chilly Day: Megan + Sarah

We met in Vegas! (Although not as sensationally as one’s imagination could paint.) We both work for the same company and met at a project Christmas Party nearly five years ago. Needless to say, we hit it off immediately. Unfortunately, it would be another two years before we found ourselves working together again, and our friendship and eventual relationship blossomed from there.

{un}convention profile // Meet Laura Babb of SNAP Photography Festival

The lack of diversity, the lack of inclusivity and the bullshit (am I allowed to say that?!) propensity to revere some vendors as rock stars, while wholly ignoring the fact that we are all service providers with (what should be) the same aim of doing a brilliant job for our couples, is something that needs to change, and I feel that {un}convention, along with events like SNAP, which also aim to educate and support people in these areas, are a really brilliant first step towards change.

Real Couples // A Geeky Engagement Session: Lilly + James

Real Couples // A Geeky Engagement Session: Lilly + James

Lilly and James (yes, really!!) are self-confessed geeks with a love of all things Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Batman, Star Wars, and just about everything else in between. They wanted an engagement session that really reflected who they are, so they opted to do it in Southend-on-Sea, a little English seaside town where Lilly grew up and both she and James spent a lot of time together early on in their relationship. They chose to start at an amazing coffee shop they know called Utopia. It's full of quirky furniture, interesting decor, and the food and coffee is pretty damn good, too. After working their way through a slice of raspberry cake and relaxing a bit more in front of my camera, we strolled over to James' favourite place, the local comic book store, where he could wander around and choose a few of his favourite graphic novels to take home with him. Then, for Lilly, we headed to a bookstore just around the corner where we mooched around opening and sniffing all the new books (aaah!). Finally, we finished by wandering down to the seafront, buying ice creams, and getting a few final shots on the shore.
