Megan and Chris's Couple Shoot is So Cute, it's right up our alley!
Megan and Chris were the lucky winners of our Valentine's Day Competition back in February and after lots of organising behind the scenes, we finally set a date and hit the Virgin Money Lounge Bowling Alley in Sheffield! A huge thank you to the guys and gals at Virgin Money for making this happen, you can check out their wonderful Virgin Money Lounge here.
Megan and Chris are secondary school sweethearts and they had me totally bowled over on Friday whilst I captured their relationship on camera. They met aged fifteen and decided to become 'official' aged sixteen - they've been together ever since and are still going strong over 2 years later, adorable!
The entire shoot was a strike to perfection, I loved photographing Megan and Chris on Friday and it's kept me smiling all weekend. The couple also received a complimentary bottle of prosecco, luxury handmade chocolate from Bullion and a print from their shoot as part of their Valentine's Day prize.
Let's get to know this wonderful couple and find out more about why they came to meet...
How did you meet?
Chris and I met aged fifteen at school, we started secondary school together aged twelve but I'm not sure Chris even knew I existed until our GCSE years - haha! We started dating aged sixteen as I loved Chris's blonde hair and blue eyes, we just got on really well!
Tell me about your first date?
We went to Hollywood Bowl for our first date - hence the photoshoot location! It's something we've both always enjoyed and thought it was the perfect way to get to know each other a little better - it's quite a wacky first date activity!
What's your favourite thing to do together? (Keep it PC please ;-))
We love going out for nice meals and enjoying good food - who doesn't?
Do you have any hobbies or fun facts?
We love bowling - of course! We also enjoy shopping, watching Hell's Kitchen and dog walking, we regularly workout together at our local gym too! Our dogs are from the same litter (they're sisters)! We got them last summer and they get on really well too.
It also took me around a month to get a word out of Chris - he was quite shy, but now I can't keep him quiet!
What's your best holiday or adventure together?
We went on our first holiday together to Greece last year and loved every minute, we can't decide where to go next!
How did you spend Valentine's Day after finding out you'd won the couples shoot competition?
We went to our favourite local Indian restaurant - Viraaj, for a good curry! It tasted even better knowing we'd got the couples shoot to look forward to! Thanks Nelly!
Thanks for sparing a minute to read all about Megan and Chris's wonderful relationship and couple's shoot. Keep your eyes peeled for more competitions coming soon, and, if you know any couples who would like a romantic photoshoot, share this post with them!
