London Engagement Photographer
A crisp and fresh January Sunday morning. Wapping High St is deserted. Parking, free and easy. I call my clients Charlotte and Marcus and they soon emerge from their stunning warehouse apartment. Their London engagement photographer ready armed with camera and light back-pack.
I love these shoots. Nothing too planned. Nothing rigid. Just a stroll along the riverside, stopping when light and location come together and offer up the ingredients to create something. That something can be powerful. A captured moment of closeness. Of feeling. Of love.
We chat about their wedding plans, their love of the city of London and how it enriches their lives. I involve them in the photography. Do they feel comfortable? Do the poses feel natural and reflect them as a couple?
The light this time of year is so diffused and soft. Like 8pm on a late August evening. As we pass Tower Bridge, we get the break I was hoping for. Just a few minutes of embracing warmth and golden light.
A quick cappuccino to stave off the cold. A slow walk through St Katherine docks and head back to the historic cobbled roads in Wapping.
We chose Simon as the photographer for our wedding photos as we love his use of light and natural style of photos. It was fantastic to get the chance to do an engagement photo shoot with him as we were able to get to know him before our big day. Simon’s approach is brilliant, he put us totally at ease and helped us to relax and just enjoy having our photos taken together. The informal style of going for a walk was really fun and we had a great time. Having engagement photos done in our local area was really special and will provide cherished memories in years to come. We now cannot wait to have photos taken by Simon on our wedding day!
