Okay, so For this one I’m gonna let you in on a little secret.
I’m an absolute sucker for a good love story.
There’s something about a good love story that takes me back to being a spotty thirteen year old, watching Romcoms and longing to meet the girl who later becomes my wife.
I’m a sucker for it. An absolute fucking sucker.
The story of Hollie & Dorian is one of my favourites. The best thing is, it’s only really just getting going.
Hollie works as a full time carer, whilst Dorian is an engineer in the Royal Navy. The two of them spend most of their time like passing ships (excuse the pun) with Dorian away at see for months and Hollie often working long night shifts. Though when the time comes and these two align, it’s the smaller things in life that these two enjoy. Whether it’s nights in listening to Hollie’s father’s vinyl collection and a bottle of wine or simply playing “Beach Bingo”, where the two of them search for old trinkets washed up along the shore, you can rest assured that these two are content just having one another around… Their pooch diesel would definitely agree.
We met up on Remembrance day to pay our respects and then spent a few hours by the sea with the dog.
This was my first shoot after attending the Dare Experience and it felt great to have such an awesome pair to create with. I think the images speak for themselves.
