London engagement portraits | Ruth & Bruce

Here is a full blog of Ruth and Bruce’s London engagement portraits on the South Bank.  What was especially fun with the shoot was the randomness that strangers can create in portraits.  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.London engagement portraits - South Bank Centre

London engagement portraits | Ruth and Bruce | A single

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.
