Comics, cake and books are some of my favorite things and also this geeky couple’s who wanted to capture the things they love in their engagement shoot with the fabulous Sarah Wayte Photography.
From the photographer, Sarah Wayte Photography:
“Lilly and James (yes, really!) are self-confessed geeks. Lilly is absolutely crazy about Harry Potter (and I have everything crossed that their first born is going to be named Harry!!) and adores books and bookstores while James is a huge comic book fan, Batman being his favourite with some seriously cool Batman ink on his arm. They came up with the idea for their shoot based on lots of things that they love.”
“First off, they chose to have the shoot in Southend where they both spent a lot of time early on in their relationship (and Lilly’s family is from that neck of the woods). They told me about this amazing coffee shop on the High Street called Utopia which has loads of funky, mismatched and battered seating (including airplane seats!) and loads of quirky decor. It also sells the most incredible hot chocolate and their cakes are to die for So we started our shoot there, over cake and coffee before heading to Ace Comics just a short walk away. This spot is one of James’ favourite places and he perused the aisles looking for some new comics before we got some great shots there.”
“After stopping at a fab wall (I love a wall) for a few outdoor shots, we headed round the corner to Waterstones where Lil and I could sniff the books and get some more photographs. We finished up by taking a stroll down to the seafront for ice-cream, getting some photos overlooking Adventure Island (the ferris wheel in the background is where Lil and Jim shared their first kiss!) and then heading on to the sand for a cuddle in the cold.”
