Couple eclipsed by sunshine

Top of my list of photo shoots to show you in e-shoot week is Lee and Hayley’s Manchester engagement shoot by Chris Hanley Photography. Chris takes the concept of an e-shoot and runs with it, creating images which you’ll treasure as much as you do your wedding photography.

Lee and Hayley chose a master photographer and have an exceptional engagement album to treasure – and these are some favourites from the day.
