With Valentines day fast approaching and lots of romance in the air, I thought it would be a good opportunity to share with you a lovely story of a shoot we did last week, for a very brave and thoughtful guy called Jeremy and his lovely girlfriend Tabitha. We first had the pleasure of meeting Jeremy and Tabitha when delivering a consignment of frames to some friends and long time clients of ours, Chris & Dale, which incidentally Jeremy got the job of hanging.
So a few weeks later we were excited to hear of his plans to surprise Tabitha next time they were up in the North East. His little scheme was planned to perfection, Tabitha’s Dad had been asked, the ring had been purchased from Tiffany’s (What more could a girl want?), Dale had helped to organise the picnic basket, complete with treats and champagne, flowers and lanterns. So where did we fit in? ….. Our brief was to collect all the goodies from Dale, set up the romantic scene and hide in the forest at Osmotherley. What we hadn’t all bargained for was a very cold day, complete with wind and rain, which was rather naive of us considering this was Britain in January. Never mind always up for a challenge we wrapped up warm, camera’s charged and off we went into the forest, to lie in wait for the poor/lucky unsuspecting Tabitha.
Undeterred by the atrocious weather Jeremy heroically did the deed, down on one knee he went and produced the ring leaving Tabitha totally speechless. After capturing the moment we left them to enjoy their champagne and for Tabitha to take in the whole scenario. Once all our goodies were deposited back in the car, we wandered along to take a more few photos, before heading off to Brompton to fill Chris and Dale in on the afternoons fun. After drying out, giving Tabitha chance to take in the occasion and Jeremy’s blood pressure to return to normal we ventured around the farm to get a few more shots to mark this wonderful day. Certainly not your everyday shoot!
