Friday 31st October was the day that I met up with Nicola and Oli at Cannock Chase Forest. To most people that day would mean Halloween, to Nicola . . . yes it was Halloween but it was also her birthday and now in addition . . .  also the day of her engagement shoot! Didn’t know any of this until half way through the shoot when we got chatting about whether Halloween was important to her and why she had a love of pumpkins? Oli returned from his van with tools and very impressively carved their wedding date into a pumpkin. So all in all a very happy birthday for Nicola which was spent driving around the forest looking for interesting places to photograph, with her husband to be, a photographer in tow and all things  trick and treaty in the van.  Autumn is a gorgeous time of year for a photographer; the rich autumnal colours, so vibrant with oranges, reds and browns made for wonderful surroundings. We met at Cannock Chase because of their love of the outdoors and cycling; perfect choice for them. However, I did discover the things that Oli loves most in the world were his bike, his van, and Nicola! I made sure there was a great combination of all of them!

You have both photographed brilliantly and were so much fun to be with. I’m honoured that I got to spend your birthday with you Nicola and even more privileged to be capturing your big day for you both in May next year. Looking forward to it :)) xx
