Lifestyle couple shoot: Before noon with Nkima and Ricky


I’m excited to share this shoot with you today because sometimes a gorgeous romantic shoot doesn’t need to be light and airy (which of course we love)….. sometimes it just has to be in black and white.  If you’re a couple who love a chilled Sunday morning with breakfast in bed, browsing the newspapers and generally just relaxing whilst the world outside bustles by then this shoot is definitely for you.  I mean, what’s better than cosying up with your significant other with a steamy cup of coffee amongst luxurious bedding!

These two are so dreamy and this shoot encapsulates the love and affection they have for each other whilst looking like they’ve stepped from the pages of a luxe editorial magazine!

Far too often we are go go go and sometimes all you need is to stop, slow down and to enjoy a relaxing Sunday morning, which as the mornings are getting darker and colder, staying indoors is very appealing!

We love capturing couples however best represents them, be it at home chilling out on a weekend or as we previously saw this week, taking a walk along the beach.  Not only is a lifestyle couple shoot perfect to have images of the two of you that aren’t selfies taken on a night out (you know the ones!) but if you’ve booked us for your wedding then your complimentary engagement shoot that comes with our collections gives you the opportunity to see just how easy and fun it really is in front of the camera and nothing to be nervous about.

So what are you waiting for? We would love to hear from you to plan an epic lifestyle couple shoot just for you!

Until next time,
