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 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.

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.

Engagement photography slideshow

A couple of weeks ago I created my first video (slideshow) on Youtube with some of my wedding pictures.

Today I’ve done the same thing with a selection of my engagement sessions. I am posting both videos as for me  it is really cool to see them both, engagements followed by weddings, as some of the couples on these engagement photos are later on the wedding video as husband and wife.

I haven’t been very original with the music on the videos I am afraid. It is the same song in both videos, but I fell in love with it from the very first moment I heard “The Lotus Flower” by Isisip and I hope you like it as much as I do.

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…

Engagement photoshoot in Southampton

Yesterday I was back from Southampton where I was photographing Kerri and Daniel’s wedding when I realized I hadn’t blogged any of their engagement photoshoot yet. I am so looking forward to blog some photos of the wedding too, but that will have to wait a little!

Engagement photoshoot Stevenage

A few weeks ago I took a trip to Stevenage since I had to do some research. I am shooting a wedding on August there and I went to see both the church and the reception venue. Even though when I do engagement photoshoots the couples come to London, I thought that once I was there why not take the photos in Stevenage. They’ve got a huge beautiful park with lakes, so I met Gina and her fiance at the Church and after talking to the vicar we headed to the park. They were really natural and relaxed, so working with them was great, they even brought a bottle of prosecco to make a toast!

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.
