Laughter-Filled Couple Session | Cudmore Grove Beach, Mersea | Katrina and Jim | Grace Elizabeth, Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding And Lifestyle Photographer


I am not quite sure you’ll ever find another couple who laugh their way through their couple session quite as much as Katrina and Jim did here. These two were so much fun that even my cheeks hurt from smiling and laughing so much when we finished their photos and got back to the car park.

Katrina and Jim reached out to me to book in a couple session to celebrate getting back together, which I thought this was the sweetest idea. Photos can often be a wonderful reminder of what we truly have, and their value grows in time, so for Katrina and Jim to book a session with me at such a pivotal time in their relationship meant a lot. They had the most amazing chemistry as a couple, and quite literally spent the entire shoot giggling away and sharing their lives with me, so much so that by the end it really just felt like I’d met up with two friends for a couple of hours and taken their portraits.

We headed to Cudmore Grove and chatted our time away as we photographed and walked along the beach. Katrina asked if she could get her sleeve tattoo in a few photos, which she got in memory of her sailor grandfather, and I immediately recognised the style. I found out that they both had almost all of their tattoos done by the family who run Black Valley Tattoo in Halstead, which is somewhere three of my clients have been now and also where I know Steph Black from (since she is part of my Meet The Maker series), and it’s pretty amazing that we all have these intertwined connections! It was really cool that they just opened up to me, it’s really something I appreciate, because it means I can take photos that truly represent who you are. 

We also found a washed up broomstick (as one does!), which these two theatre performers just had to use, hence it’s little cameo. Honestly they both absolutely had me in stitches!

So thank you, Katrina and Jim, for being bundles of fun and just letting me photograph you on a rather blustery Sunday afternoon. You were the best (and I must meet you for a cuppa soon!)
