Chelsea baby portraits | Thea

Almost five years ago exactly, I was photographing Patrick on his first birthday. Now he’s running around with a Nintendo game … and it was his sister Thea’s turn this week on HER first birthday in Chelsea. What’s amazing is how similar they look at the same age. Here are a few from their session which are going into a feature album with one selected as a large wall portrait.

London engagement portraits | Amy & Rob | A single

Amy and Rob had a London portrait shoot today, capturing a number of the city’s landmarks on Valentine’s Day weekend.  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!

Westminster Register Office | London Wedding

I quite often photograph London midweek Westminster Register Office weddings with the couple and a few guests, loving the innate intimacy. It also means that we can do some portraits – especially if the couple is about to move to Canada and wants to capture the London-ness of their ceremony, with black cabs, red post boxes and double-decker buses … and did I mention rain and umbrellas? Here are some photographs from Sheri and Dan’s day.

Islington Register Office wedding | Yu-wei and Richard Pt 2

I posted two photographs from Yu-wei and Richard’s Islington Register Office wedding last month which were going to be put on display at their overseas celebrations. I wanted to share some more from the day, now that they are edited. Yu-wei and Richard had a small celebration with family at Islington Register Office then we spent an hour or so on an Islington walkabout portrait session.
They both saw each other beforehand, allowing us time for some portraits at Islington Town Hall.

Yu-wei had the most wonderful vintage style wedding dress that suited her so incredibly well.  Her bag was a vintage item that she already had in her wardrobe – it went beautifully.

Then their families arrived and it was time for the ceremony, followed by congratulations and then we left on our portrait walkabout session.
