Sheila and Peter are getting married later this month, so we set up a pre-wedding portrait shoot or engagement shoot near London Eye. They very much like the London landmark – so we started their portraits there and progressed along the south bank for some casual photographs of the two of them. Both work in a jewellers, so a photograph of Sheila’s ring was a must.
I’ve finished editing Liz & Craig’s engagement portraits from Brighton and here are my remaining favourites. I hope these portraits will help them keep the Brighton vibe until their wedding there in September next year. I especially like the deckchair ones because Liz and Craig said they imagined being an old couple one day, holding hands on the pier.
Yesterday’s engagement portraits with London couple Craig and Liz were in Brighton – one of their favourite places and somewhere they steal away when they can.Â They wanted to show the fun in their relationship – hence meeting on Brighton Pier. Here is a preview of three – more to come next week when all the portraits have been edited.
Here is a full blog of Ruth and Bruce’s London engagement portraits on the South Bank.Â What was especially fun with the shoot was the randomness that strangers can create in portraits.Â Much of the time, strangers are very polite and will wait for you to take a photograph before they walk in between you and the subjects, which can be lovely, and sometimes it’s just fun if they don’t see what’s going on and just want to whizz by on their scooter.
One of the locations featured in these portraits is an absolute fave for Bruce and he was very excited when we were there. If you think you might know which location and perhaps why, do please post in the comments – I’d love to hear from you.
Ruth and Bruce are getting married in nine weeks, so we spent a few hours yesterday afternoon on their central London engagement portraits. Our meandering took us past the restaurant where they had one of their first dates and where Bruce proposed. I’ll post a selection of their images later in the week, but for now, here is a single from their session.
Amy and Rob had a London portrait shoot today, capturing a number of the city’s landmarks on Valentine’s Day weekend.Â They’re getting married in Houston in November and have become platinum frequent fliers staying in touch in the past two years while Rob has worked for an American firm, helping to set up its London base. We went from the South Bank Centre to St Paul’s Cathedral and on to Scott’s, where they had a dinner reservation. This is one of the last of the day, taken about three minutes before they went into dinner and the heavens opened with an icy downpour … talk about timing!
