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 photography in a colorful London spot

Let me introduce you to Laura and Danny, a very sweet and beautiful couple. They are getting married in a few months and I will be there with them on their big day too. I cannot wait!

We had their engagement photography session three weeks ago in one of my favorite spots in London: Neil’s Yard. I have known Neil’s Yard for a few years, and I still don’t know why I hadn’t had an engagement photography session until this day there, what a charming and photogenic place!

The day was perfect, sunny but not too much and we were there soon enough to avoid too many tourists (as it is very close to Covent Garden) and the alley and courtyard is quite small.

All business in the courtyard are really nice and each of them make their color contribution to the beautiful color mayhem.

After being shooting in Neil’s yard, we walked down to the river and we took the chance to take a few photos in front of the Savoy Hotel, which was a very special place for them, and as it happens it is a special place for me too.

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.

London engagement photoshoot: Michael & Susan

Michael, Susan and me had been planning their engagement photoshoot for a long time. Everytime we fixed a date it was pouring on the day, and we kept postponing it, three times in total. Finally, the 26th of May was a beautiful sunny morning. I also met Susan for the first time on the day, since she couldn’t come to the meeting when they book my services for their wedding on July. They were all dressed up and looking great.

London engagement photoshoot: Emily & Ben

I met Ben and Emily in Peckham Rye for their engagement photoshoot there. They chose the place, this was an special location for them as they used to live there and this photoshoot was a bit different for me. I normally know the locations I am shooting at,  I go to see them beforehand, but it was not possible in this case, as the location was too far away from me. This was not a problem though, it was great to see something with fresh eyes and I was surprised at how beautiful this park is. Right before starting the session the friendliest dog in the world came to us to say hello.

London engagement photoshoot: Katie & Thomas

Katie and Thomas are getting married at the London Zoo on July and I cannot wait to photograph their wedding. They are incredibly friendly and so easy to work with!Some other people are more camera-shy or find it difficult to behave naturally in front of one and it takes a while to relax, but that was not the case with them.  They were literally talking to each other, playing and laughing and I was doing my thing, and from that naturalness came these photos

Islington Engagement shoot

Marnie and James are getting married on April in Islington and a couple of weeks ago we met for their engagement shoot. We had the photoshoot in the same area they are going to get married where I found this beautiful and incredibly photogenic little street which is called Camden passage, with beautiful, colorful little shops. The first stop was in this cute cafe called “Milky Way” full of vintage decorations and pastel colors, which I loved:
