Peel Tower, Holcombe, Ramsbottom Couples Shoot with Beth & Simon.
I recently had the pleasure of doing a couples shoot for Simon and Beth in Ramsbottom, Lancashire at Peel Tower which is at the top of Holcombe Hill.
Ah Peel Tower....I absolutely love this landmark!! The reason being; it brings back memories of my childhood, driving past each Saturday afternoon to get back home to Helmshore from visiting my gran! It's a well known landmark in the local area and is often referred to as; 'Holcombe Hill' or 'Peel Tower.' Either way, its a lovely walk to the top where you will be greeted with magnificent views across Ramsbottom and the Rossendale Valley, and it was home to my latest couple's shoot with Beth, Simon and their two furry friends, Tia and Max!!
Picture the scene.....It was an idyllic day, bright sunshine and blue skies. Perfect conditions for a couple's shoot in the early evening. So, we headed up the hill all five of us....what I didn't expect when we reached the very top was how cold it actually was!! The wind was blowing in all directions, not great when you've freshly washed and straightened your hair for a shoot!! Windy it was, but when the sun is setting, and you have a beautiful couple, gorgeous views, you just can not beat it!!
As a documentary style wedding photographer I like to capture all the details as they happen during any shoot; family, newborn, couples. So I was more than happy to snap away and take some lovely pictures of Tia and Max as they explored the heathers alongside Beth and Simon. Beth and Simon are such a lovely couple and they relaxed well into their shoot, which you can definitely see from the final photos!!
