Emily and Chris love walking their huskies in farmland near where they live, so when they said they wanted to get their beautiful dogs involved in the shoot it was something I couldn’t say no to!
I’m very much a dog, rather than cat, person but nothing could prepare me for just how beautiful their huskies were, and so very strong as well! It was quite important for me to get to know them a little as Emily and Chris wanted to have some shots with them on the wedding day too. It was a little chilly, but the farm buildings made for some lovely backdrops, and Emily and Chris’ smiles certainly warmed the day up as well. Their wedding at the stunning Down Hall will be featured very soon!
Alice and Luke contacted me in the summer before their October wedding so we were able to take full advantage of the lovely summer evening light and chose to go to Lee Valley for their engagement shoot.
They were a lovely couple to shoot and their little sense of craziness was something I really warmed to making their engagement shoot a complete joy. We found a great little bridge, stunning fields and an oversized chair to use as our backdrops on the shoot. Don’t get confused next year when you see Alice again on my blog – she isn’t getting married again, her two sister has just booked me to shoot her wedding in October :)
Charlotte and Paul wanted to have their engagement shoot close to home and chose Crystal Palace park as their location. It’s somewhere I wanted to shoot for a long time so I was please it was top of their list!
I knew there was an overgrown ruin from when the park was used to house the actual Crystal Palace in the 1800s and by chance the gate to the ruined area was unlocked when we got there – perfect! – I love shooting where I’m not supposed to ;) Charlotte and Paul were great to shoot as you can see from their easy and relaxed look! The ruins, the great steps and, as you’d expect from me, the wall of a public toilet, all added up to make a great set of images.
