Engagement photoshoot abroad (here in London)

First of all, happy Valentines day all! I thought I would share same photos from one of my last sessions today to celebrate the day of love. Melissa and Jay live both in the United States but they decided to have their engagement photoshoot abroad (here in London).

As it is natural, this engagement session asked for a London landmark as a background and some other London’s typical and cool urban furniture, such as our very photogenic telephone boxes.

The connection with both Melissa and Jay was immediate and it was sooo easy and such a pleasure to work with them.

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…

Marylebone Town Hall wedding: Emily&Ben

I really love central London weddings as Emily and Ben’s! There are multiple backgrounds to use, and the environment of busy streets full of londoners and  tourists is a great opportunity for photos. People looking at the bride and the groom, sometimes even congratulating them as they walk by cause reactions and smiles on them which I love to capture. The day started early in the morning at the Civil Service Club, where Emily got ready and where the wedding reception took place later on the day. A routemaster bus was waiting outside to take her as well as her parents, bridesmaid and close relatives to Marylebone Town hall, where the civil ceremony took place.I traveled with them on the bus and I quickly went inside to the Purple Room where Ben and their guests were waiting for the arrival of the bride to take some shots.This has been my second wedding at Marylebone Town Hall and both have been in the Purple Room. It is a beautiful and elegant room with good lighting, I love taking pictures in there. The whole building, inside and outside makes a beautiful background for wedding photos.After a beautiful ceremony and taking some group photos outside on the steps, we all got on the bus again to go to the Civil Service Club, very close to the river . Emily and Ben were not interested in dedicating a lot of their time posing for photos, so we just went for a few minutes to Embankment bridge and took some very natural and unposed photos from there with some of London’s highlights in the background.After that, they went back to their guests and enjoy their day.
