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 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.

Bridal Shoot on black and white film

After a week waiting for my black and white images from the lab, I finally got them and I can share some of them here.

These are from a session I had with Angela.  If you have visited my blog recently, I posted some of the color images taken with an AE-1 Canon film camera and a roll of Fuji Pro 400 last week. If you haven’t seen those images, you can do by clicking here.

The black and white images on this post were taken with a Praktica camera using a Kodak T-Max 400 roll.

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.

Lavender themed wedding shoot

After more than a year, it was about time to publish a few more pictures from this beautiful photoshoot that Rosie Hardy organized for a group of photographers at Mayfield Lavender Farm in South London.

You can see a set of these photos, the first ones to be edited,  here. But today, with a little bit of free time on my hands, I discovered many more from the shoot that I thought they deserved a space on my blog too. So I have been editing to get this resuts…I hope you like 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…

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:

Album cover photography: Abbaphonic

It has been a while since my last post. These photos here were also taken a while ago. To be more specific, it was a job I did at the end of September for a design studio who was doing the design album cover for the last album of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
This album features Abba’s greatest hits with an orchestral twist. West End singers Ria Jones and Mary Carewe put their wonderful voices.
It was an important day for me and very exciting, since I am normally used to be involved in more intimate photoshoots, only me and the model/client normally(as I trained as a makeup artist before, I normally help also with that). But there was a lot of people involved in this, since apart from the two singers, me and Maria (who was my assistant for the day), people from the design studio and from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra marketing department were present during the shoot, and a makeup artist, of course.
Time went by really quickly and it was a pleasure to work with everyone, specially with the two singers, Ria and Mary, they were really nice and easy to work with.
I am waiting to receive some copies of the cd and enjoy it!
The two first photos are the original ones I took, the design of the cd has been done for the design studio which hired my services, Oink creative Ltd.
