Teaguen + Keith Pre shoot - Minster Lovell-1046

Minster Lovell Engagement photos, Teaguen & Keith

A few weeks back I was In Oxfordshire doing some Minster Lovell engagement photos with the lovely Teaguen and Keith. 

Minster Lovell ruins are pretty close to where they live and they suggested it might be a great place to meet up for the pre wedding shoot.

I’m going to call this shoot, the attack of the dreaded Blandford Flies……..Because that’s pretty much what happened to me.  Whilst wading through undergrowth in shorts trying to get some nice shots of Teaguen and Keith, I started to realise my legs were becoming itchy as hell.  Like the true trooper that I am, I just continued with the job in hand and apart from resisting the urge to itch my legs off, tried to forget about it.

It wasn’t until I got home that I realised something wasn’t right.  Both my legs from the knees down had swollen up and were covered in nasty looking bites.  A trip to the doctors the next morning diagnosed the attack as Blandford Fly, which I must admit, I didn’t even know was a thing.

So moral of the story, Don’t wear shorts and go wading through undergrowth :)

Back to the shoot.  It was lovely to meet up with Teaguen and Keith again as it seemed like forever since we had met in a pub in the depths of winter to see if they would like to book me for their wedding.

I really enjoy these “getting to know each other” experiences with couples. I believe they really help illuminate any anxieties they may have. After all not many people enjoy having their photo taken.

As I write this post, their wedding is tomorrow and i’m super excited as its going to be a fab day i’m sure.
