I first met Louise and Ben for a consultation meeting that turned into a few glasses of wine. After that I knew I wanted to shoot their wedding and were delighted when they asked me to do so!
Of course, I already knew I would like them as Ben works at one of the architecture firms from where I have shot many a wedding now! All of these weddings have had delightful, fun couples and I wasn’t surprised Louise and Ben shared a similar outlook on the world! We met at Hackney Wick and walked around the Olympic site in London’s East End for a great urban engagement shoot. There’s a lot of interesting backdrops to use around the area and, sharing a similar sense of humour, the expressions in the photos are great too!
I don’t know if it’s just luck, but pretty much all of my couples are always so down to earth and easy to shoot. Gab and Matt are no exception and their engagement shoot on Blackheath was adorable and blessed with awesome early evening light as we shot against the London skyline.
Although I’ve now moved to Edinburgh, Blackheath was my final destination in London and I’d never had a chance to shoot there, so I was delighted when Gab and Matt said it was somewhere they’d be happy to have theirs around. It’s a special little place with lots of hidden wild areas, and with Greenwich Park a short walk away we managed to get some shots with the iconic skyline in the distance. As you can see from the shots, I love combining a bit of urban (usually council estates!) and greenery like in the park. In the end though, it’s always about the expression and I think Gab and Matt gave me lots of great ones to work with!
Rob and Georgia aren’t getting married yet but were interested in having a shoot with them and their son, so although it’s not something I usually do, I was persuaded to head down to Hampstead and shoot the three of them! It was a lovely sunny morning and all three were naturals in front of the camera and it’s always an exciting challenge shooting children for me!
