Engagement photographer London
Early on a September Sunday morning. Warm sunlight breaking through and illuminating some of London’s stunning landmarks. A great opportunity for an enagement photographer London. Ally and Mark had been patient and waited for the right weekend, light wise and this was just the perfect conditions.
I met the guys at St Pauls. I know the area well as I have photographed weddings there before. These London engagement photographer sessions are approached in a slightly different way to weddings. I keep things very informal. We just go for a stroll and stop where the light is working well and hopefully create something unique and creatively strong.
St Pauls has a wonderful rustic feel to the stonework. We avoided the obvious areas and used some of the gardens and side doors. The sun was well postioned for us to use the Millenium Bridge. It’s the first time I’ve used this location as an engagement photographer in London. The modern structure works really well and I don’t mind people in the background, picking out the couple with a shallow depth of field.
We had a stroll around the outside of The Tate with Ally and Mark, chatting about their Christmas wedding that I will be photographing at Hylands House in Chelmsford, Essex. Ally is a musician and has an idea for a family groupshot set around a grand piano. I’m looking forward to this one!
I seem to be an engagement photographer in London on a more regular basis. These shoots are just great fun to be a part of. I really like the informality and discovering new locations. There also seems to be a growing interest from overseas clients, with a number of American couples contacting me for London engagement photography.
Mark and Ally, I hope you enjoy the pictures and one will make the lounge wall. See you at Christmas!
