Found in the Lake District, Wasdale is by far one of the most beautiful locations for an engagement session I have ever photographed.
Helen & James are based in the Lake District and I had been desperate to photograph around the Lake District for a long old time. It seemed completely perfect (and spoiler alert, it was).
Helen had initially mentioned to me that they might like to bring one of their dogs along for their session and I was immediately all for it, so when we finally met up and three dogs appeared, I couldn't have been more in love. Bringing pets along to a session can really help to make it a completely unique experience and it definitely did for this shoot. Capturing their joy in chasing after three young and excitable dogs was so much fun, even if I was doing my best not to get splashed!
Wasdale is a huge location, surrounded by mountains, including Scafell Pike. The vastness of the location felt like it matched James and Helen's relationship. Their relationship is full of fun, laughter, adventure, and the occasional face lick after a kiss. They are such a joy to be around.
I was completely blown away by Wasdale, and capturing Helen & James's relationship there was such an honour and was just as beautiful as I hoped it would be. I imagine that it would be incredible at sunrise and sunset and would adore to shoot there again.
