For my next ‘In the Life’ instalment, I thought it was only fair I brought you Corinne Evans! After a year and a half shooting together we’ve produced images for Animal, My Protein, Northcore and C-Skins as well as the beautiful Azura Bay (see our shoot here)!
When you’re an athlete, fitness becomes an essential and key aspect of your lifestyle which means you need to get out, keep fit and maintain a healthy and balanced diet. A day in the life of Corinne will regularly include a coastal run and/or yoga ON TOP of the work out she naturally gets from surfing. Arm and core strength is super important so an all round workout keeps her in tip top condition!
Once her workout is complete, it’s time for a surf check, pit stop back at the car then off to chase those waves! Packed with a warm change of clothes, flask and beauty products to protect those gorgeous locks we headed back to the coast! I honestly can’t think of better way to make a living and I’ll be joining Corinne again soon for another day of coastal walks, surfing and camp fire cooking!
To purchase Corinnes My Protein outfit or any Northcore products, just follow the links above! I’d happily buy that surf board just to look at! (all the heart eye emojis)
Having previously worked alongside Animal I was super happy to received an email asking if I could shoot their Autumn/Winter 2016 active range! After discussing locations, mood boards and the vibe Animal wanted to achieve I then met up with their latest team member/model Philly Lewis; who teaches yoga, surfs and is also a photographer!
Renowned for their surf/skate and ski apparel, Animal wanted their new active capsule to portray an athletic lifestyle that could be adopted by anyone; so with this in mind we approached the idea that I would capture the collection in both an urban and coastal environment.
Philly and I had such a great day shooting across Truro, Perranporth and Newquay as she switched between each outfit to provide a variety of product and lifestyle shots.
As well as information about yoga classes, head over to Wild & Free to find out were Philly and Alan Stokes (also sponsored by Animal) are next hosting their surf and yoga retreats!
Thanks again to Animal & Philly for a lush day,
Only a few weeks ago on a sunny Friday in Falmouth I had the absolute pleasure of capturing Kerry & Andrews wedding at the Greenbank Hotel. We had one of the most relaxed mornings EVER while Kerry sat and had her hair and make up done with family and friends popping in and out of the room as well as us all taking a trip down to the ceremony room to have a peek at the decorating and styling coming together.
Once all the guests had moved from the bar to their seats it was time for Kerry to walk down the aisle accompanied by her two boys. Waiting for her, was a nervous and emotional but very happy husband-to-be Andrew. After a beautifully intimate ceremony, it was time to head back downstairs to enjoy drinks and canapés whilst soaking up the sun between the terrace and lounge.
The wedding breakfast was held in the same room as the ceremony where the sun continued to flood in through the balcony windows that over looked the stunning estuary leading to the River Fal. I can completely see why Kerry & Andrew chose to celebrate their wedding here, as well as being only a stones throw away from where she grew up.
With the sun setting behind the river and the light drawing in, it was time to welcome the evening guests and witness their first dance as husband and wife; what a perfect end to their beautiful, heart warming and special day. I honestly don’t think I stopped smiling throughout, it was infectious as you can see from the way Kerry looked below.
Kerry & Andrew, here’s to a fabulous future as the new Mr & Mrs Burt, I wish you and your gorgeous children a lifetime of health and happiness.
All my best,
Who knew a wet wedding could become one of your all time favourites.
When you have a stunning couple, combined with your love of people and the dramatic cornish coastline you can’t really go wrong can you?! …and these two NAILED it!
I arrived at Ludgvan church on the Saturday and eagerly awaited the arrival of the beautiful Bride Maria having not previously met! I usually always meet my couples before the wedding to chat through plans and put them at ease with what to expect so it was a tad different for me to have the Bride pull up outside the church and not know who was going to step out of the car. But just look. I absolutely love the shot I grabbed super quick as the car stopped with her gorgeous little face peeping through the window gap.
Following a beautiful ceremony with one of Maria’s bridesmaids even singing during the signing of the marriage certificates we all began to make our way over to Sennen cove after a few drinks from the fishing ‘ice box’ and some classic cornish cream teas.
Down pour number 1.
After only a little wait, Maria, Quentin and their wedding party all popped on a pair of wellies and marched down to the beach with me, completely unfazed by the drizzle - couples like this ALWAYS win in my eyes but what we managed to capture was an even bigger win. The stormy, misty seas created the most stunning backdrop and almost felt quite fitting with Quentin’s fishing background.
Luckily, the Bride and Groom could stay dry under the roof of the rustic styled bar while I snapped away but there were a lot of umbrellas flying around trying to get people in and out before the wedding breakfast!
Once we were done, the wedding party gathered in most cosy and quirky restaurant sat on the coast over looking the dramatic skies and seas below. With the beachy/fishing theme running throughout with named shells for each guest you could see how important the Cornish coast was to the Bride & Groom. Styling and colours really make a wedding unique and this wedding certainly had all the boxes ticked.
Maria & Quentin, thank you both SO much for having me at your super special day, I’m glad to hear you had a fabulous honeymoon! Here’s to the rest of your lives together as you embark on your latest adventure as husband and wife!
A few months ago my lovely friend Abi from A Country Lady forwarded me a super exciting email asking if I could photograph the content that would run alongside her interview with Barbour for their #BarbourLife blog! Who was I to turn THAT down! So having arranged a date and made a plan to follow their brief we spent the day shooting at her yard then across the moors of the North coast to capture a real feel for what it means to be a country lady living in Cornwall. With 80% of Cornwalls’ perimiter being made up of coastline, we weren’t spoilt for choice but something about the north coast is always pretty spectacular, plus, this was a stone’s throw away so very much a favourite local spot for Abi.
It’s always so much fun documenting shoots like this and I absolutely love what we captured. To see the full interview, just head over to A Country Ladys’ feature on Barbour here.
