Roger got in touch to arrange photography of their civil partnership in Bournemouth, Dorset. They live in London, but Roger’s family are based in Dorset, so they booked the civil partnership ceremony at Bournemouth Town Hall.
Both Rob and Roger have never had any professional photos taken before and were rather apprehensive about having their photo taken. So I offered a complimentary couple shoot so they could get some practice before the big day. We met up for a coffee before the shoot, Rob has a great sense of humour and is the more mischievous partner. We spent some time chatting and getting to know each other before we had a nice walk through Bournemouth gardens.
After spending about an hour photographing and chatting, they were more comfortable about having their photo taken and I was able to get some nice natural shots capturing their individual personalties and love for one another. Very much looking forward to photographing their civil partnership.
Here are a few of the photos from the shoot:
