Engagement shoot with dog

                    Engagement shoot with dog at Battersea Park

Today I wanted to share just a few pictures from one of my last engagement shoots, an engagement shoot with dog.

I was very excited since the moment I received the request for this engagement photoshoot…everyone who knows me well know I am such a dog lover. I was very much looking forward to this photo session.

Instead of photographing the couple by themselves, their dog joined the photoshoot for most of the photos. A wonderful addition to the session, a great memory for them and…people are so much more relaxed when having dogs around! It makes camera-shy people feel much more at ease in front of the camera. If you have a dog, I totally recommend the dog joining for any photo sessions you are planning!

Winter engagement session

It has been a few weeks since this winter engagement session in north London.

It was a wintery day with a lot of mud in the park, but I am lucky that my clients are usually very cooperative and they are happy to do what I think works best for the photos. Even if that means to get their shoes a bit dirty! Photos can be boring if you stick to do only what is comfortable! Sometimes you need a bit more, specially if it is winter and you would like to go to the park for your engagement pictures.

We all got dirty shoes at the end of the shoot, but we were all happy with the result, which is the most important thing.

I photographed their wedding only last week at the Renaissance hotel in Kings Cross and it was such an amazing and perfect day in such a beautiful wedding venue. I cannot wait to blog some of the photos in the next weeks.

Engagement session in Camden

I met Christie a long time ago, we both worked together a few years back.

Even though we took different paths, she thought about me when she and Tom got engaged and asked me to be their photographer for their big day.

Around a month before their wedding in Norfolk, we had an engagement session in Camden and around, and these are some of the photos of the day. We chose a colorful street in that London area and their favorite park as location for their engagement session.

It was so much fun working with them, I could’t have asked for a more natural and lively couple in front of the camera!

Central London engagement shoot

This lovely engagement shoot happened a couple of months ago in central London. I cannot believe it has taken me this long to post some photos!

Jeannie and Tak are from Malasya, but live here, and I was lucky to be the photographer they chose for their engagement shoot in London. For them it was not only important to capture them and their feelings for each other, but they wanted something with a very british and London taste to it. They were also wearing the same outfits they will be wearing on their wedding day, which I love.

The day started early in the morning in the Royal Albert Hall and we had a black cab all the time with us to take us from one place to the other. These are all the places we visit: The Royal Albert Hall, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, Aldmiral Arch, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, Millenium Bridge and St. Paul’s and Tower Bridge.

They were three great and intense hours and as usual, the time flew by.

This is a selection of photos of the day.

London engagement shoot: Julia and Mark in London bridge and HMS Belfast

Today I have the pleasure to feature Julia and Mark’s engagement shoot in London Bridge and the HMS Belfast on my blog.

The location was chosen by them, since they got engaged in front of this ship museum. This was a very special place for them as you can imagine. We took a good number of photos with the HMS Belfast in the background, and the great thing is that Southbank is such a good location for photos that it is really easy to find nice spots everywhere around.

This was one cold day on April, specially chilly when on the bridge! But they had the chance of wearing the same clothes as they were wearing when they got engaged. With the choice of same location and same clothes than on the day of their engagement , I hope that they could go back to the day itself and these photos help to preserve a precious moment in their lives.

London engagement shoot: Claire and Richard

Claire, Richard and me met the last week of February for their engagement shoot.

We met in Embankment, a lovely place from where you can walk easily to many London highlights and some lovely and quiet gardens around too. Claire was looking amazing in a coat that used to belong to her mum and red lipstick.

It was a very chilly day, specially when on the bridge! and there was quite a bit of walking involved too…they were great and the cold didn’t affect them at all.

I cannot wait to photograph their wedding in a month…

London engagement photoshoot: Jennie & Alex

I had this engagement photoshoot with Jennie and Alex the 1st of July. I had been in Regent’s Park recently with another couple but this time I was surprised to see the park so changed! The park was at its best, full of blooming roses and colours…just beautiful!
Jennie is American and Alex french, and it was her suggestion to bring both flags plus an UK one to use them as props for the shoot. I don’t use props very often as I tend to focus more on the couple, but I loved the flags in this occasion as it was a prop that made complete sense for the two of them.
