Barry’s Amusement’s Portrush Funfair Engagement Shoot: Natasha & Mark
We first spoke to Natasha on the phone when she called the studio a couple of years ago to check our availability. “Are you free on my date in May 2015?” she keenly asked. So Graham checked the diary and broke the news to her that he wasn’t free on her date. The usual joker that Graham is then made a joke about “but I am free the following week if you change your date” – to which Natasha said, “Okay, let me call the venue” and the rest is history! It isn’t every day that a bride changes her wedding day, just to get the photographer she wants! So for Natasha to do just that to book us for her wedding day really is something very special to us.
Natasha and Mark are a lovely couple and an awful lot of fun, so when Natasha suggested having their engagement photographs taken in Barry’s Amusements in Portrush we jumped at the chance! We are big kids at heart and nothing sounded more better than a Funfair Engagement Shoot! Don’t even get Graham started on the dodgems!
The people at Barry’s were great sports too! They even opened up early to let us in for some lovely intimate shots on our own.They even lent us the teddy!
Once the doors at Barry’s opened and the crowds started to arrive, we headed out onto the Beach. While down there Natasha and Mark were fabulous sports. Heading into the ice cold water for us to get some great shots of them paddling.
Here are our favourites from the shoot.
