A few weeks back I got to do a couple shoot in Dublin with J+A, aka Jonny and Alanna. It was a sleepy Sunday morning in Dublin city, so was perfect for wandering around different parts of the city. Jonny and Alanna had come to me with a few different locations they wanted to explore, but when we met up on the Sunday morning they were up for anything and anywhere, which was amazing to have a couple so open to ideas!
That’s what I love about couple shoots, the freedom with locations and ideas it brings, you can go anywhere for a shoot, there really is no limits. It is a great way to get comfortable in front of a camera and for me as a photographer to observe how a couple interact with each other and get to know them better.
Jonny and Alanna lived in Canada for a number of years but decided to return home as they both love Dublin city and wanted to be closer to friends and family, so it meant a lot to them to have a series of photographs from around this beautiful city. Alanna braved the cold in the most beautiful yellow dress which just popped against the different backgrounds around the city and came well prepared with her flats for the walking! We really had so much fun on this shoot, strolling around the streets and chatting along, the time flew in and luckily the rain stayed away. J+A were complete naturals in front of the camera and an absolute pleasure to photograph. Their wedding is in November and I’m sure it will be a beautiful day for this lovely couple.
