Behind the camera, an engagement shoot.


Once upon a time, long before I started modeling, yours truly wanted to be a photographer. It started when I was fifteen and whiled away my afternoons getting lost on Deviantart, then getting frustrated with the family point and shoot when it wouldn't do as I wanted. For my sixteenth birthday I finally got an SLR (the same one I use today!) and whilst it's fairly basic and outdated, it's seen me through the past four years faithfully.

I studied photography at A Level, however I didn't pursue it any further. Nowadays the only photography I really do is for my blog posts, so when Shannon of Daisy Rain asked me to do her engagement shoot, it was a tempting offer. I was a little worried that I was too rusty to be trusted with something so important and special to them, however Shannon had faith in me and I tried my hardest to bring their vision to life. Considering I haven't been too hot with my photography for the past couple of years, I must admit I'm quite pleased with the final photos.

This is really just a taster, but I was so excited to share! Now that Shannon's given me the green light, I wanted to post a few of my favourites. Aren't they a sweet couple, and how beautiful is her ring?

Congratulations, Shannon and Jack, and thank you for trusting me with your engagement shoot!

  3. You've taken some wonderful photos of them both, think they'll be dead proud of them, it's a shame you didn't choose to carry it on!
    I was in York today and I went into Yumi, and it was so strange to see posters of you, as I absolutely love your blog :) xxx

  5. Haha, that is exactly my story (and probably the story of half of all teenage girls too, but anyway). I became obsessed with the idea of becoming a photographer at 15 and got an slr for my 16th birthday! I studied photography in senior high school too, but now only use photography in my blog. Haha
    These photos are awesome though, you do have a talent :)
