Were Nat and Judy always the people you had in mind for Russ and Lina? She was someone who I'd wanted to work with for years.Nat is someone who I was introduced to through my managers, and the second we sat down together I was like, "Oh my God, this is the perfect guy." That one was a little harder for me, just because ... Especially last year, when we had six weeks to get up and running and I needed all the help I could get. Did you just want to shake up the story a little bit?There's a lot of Russ and Lina coming together in a more romantic way this season. He went to rehab and is trying to rebuild his life, and he's doing it in so many hilariously awful ways.What else can you tell viewers about the coming season? In one episode, he becomes committed to trying to get a webcam girl off the cam.Another thing we're focusing on is adult friendships. The greatest compliment I ever get is when people say it feels like you have hidden cameras in our house. When I was a kid and I would go to the movies, there were so many different ways in which you're wowed.When you're so focused on family and career, how much time do you have to still be friends with people, especially when those friends can be emotionally draining? We just had this fight, or we need to be having this fight but aren't having it yet. But the one that impressed me the most was when I recognized an emotion or connected with an emotion that I saw on screen. When I hear that people are connecting with the emotions of the show, all I ever want to do is give that back.
Writing for Nat is so delightful because he's such a naturally funny guy. Where we started the series, Russ was in crisis, and kind of mirroring my own experience was projecting his own insecurities and dissatisfaction with where he was in his life onto his relationship. What I wanted to do this season was have Russ in a little bit better place and have Lina become a little bit more untethered and Russ have to deal with that.I'm a huge romantic comedy fan, so we have a couple of big episodes like that this season.There's one where they become paranoid that a guy living in their guest house might be a murderer and they play hooky from their jobs to investigate him.)We’re proud to be recognised by our peers, and to date we have five Fearless Photographer awards and seven Masters of Wedding Photography UK awards between us, and we scooped the top Wedding Photographer award at the 2016 Four Counties Wedding Awards.
