Southend-on-Sea is pretty much home to me. I grew up in Rayleigh just a few miles away and visited the beach regularly as a child. When I met my wife we lived together in a flat on the seafront and saw the sea every single day. I love the sea. But whilst the beach and the seafront is what Southend is known for, there’s more to the town than you initially might think. In recent years modern and bold architecture has started to blend with the old victorian brickwork in the town. And this is side of Southend I wanted to use for Sonya and Lee’s pre-wedding engagement shoot.
Sonya and Lee were absolutely awesome to photograph, it was a fun and relaxed morning. Hearing more about their wedding plans was exciting. To say I can’t wait for their wedding is an understatement. I just know it’s going to be amazing. Here are a few of my favourites from their shoot.
