Grant was 19 and Lauren was 17 when they first met in Weymouth through a mutual friend. Grant was picking up his photos from his disposable camera from Download festival and Lauren was shopping with her friend. Grant asked for Lauren’s number and after a lot of texting using up ridiculous amounts of phone credit, they decided to date and they went from there.
They decided to go to some spots in and around Weymouth that they’ve spent a lot of time together at for their engagement shoot with me. Which comprised of utilising the local area and activities that they’ve done so many times together over the last 10 years.
Saving for a house and being so young when they first met meant that they spent most of their time around Weymouth and Portland. They've spent a lot of time together in Lodmoor Nature Reserve as it was so close to where Grant lived and they could be out and about together on their bikes and longboards. They love animals so they used to walk around the nature reserve, spending time watching and feeding the ducks.
Grant and Lauren love ice cream and you’re spoilt for choice in Weymouth! So they were keen to capture photos of them with an ice cream on the harbour before we headed to one of the many amusement arcades and the Chesil beach in Portland.
