Casual Summer Garden Engagement: Victoria & Simon

Victoria and Simon are getting marred in just a few months at the fantastic Mill at Ballydugan. So last summer we ventured out for their love shoot. They wanted something casual and laid back so when Simon’s mums friend offered her garden as a location we all jumped at the chance. It had been a glorious summer day when we headed down to just outside Ballynahinch for this evening shoot. We have done a few shoots in the past where people had brought their dogs so Vikki asked if we minded if their little Lhasa Apso dog Bella came along? which of course was no problem at all. At this point we had been talking about getting a dog ourselves but couldn’t decide on a breed, Well we met little Bella and had a chat about how calm and quiet she is and that was our minds made up, a few weeks later Little Glyn was part of our family and the rest is history). Anyhow, here are some of my favourite shots from their shoot…
