London Engagement Photo Session – Tower Bridge, London

For this amazing london engagement photos session I travelled back to the big smoke, in fact tower bridge! Everyone knows this famous iconic bridge, so myself Ksenia & Iain decided to not follow the crowd and head to the famous bridge but instead totally wing it and see what we could find elsewhere. Sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of a big city, so every now and then it’s great to explore new surroundings. Whilst wandering around, I said to Ksenia & Iain how normally everytime I go to tower bridge I see a chinese bride in a wedding dress with a whole crew of photographers and light guys. And as if by magic we turned a corner just of the underpass of tower bridge and bam! A chinese bride and groom placed precariously on the wall with Tower bridge in the background. Hats off to the chinese as being on a high wall with a wedding dress and a sheer drop into the thames on the other side takes some cahooners!

Engagement photographer in London

With every couple I always ask for them to pick a place special to them or somewhere they would love to explore. I don’t like to put ideas into people’s heads but rather feed me ideas. This means the resulting photographs become the best representation to them. Ksenia & Iain originally wanted to have the engagement session around their home in Bermondsey as they both loved the vintage feel brickwork of the houses in the street they lived. This is when I remembered that all around tower bridge is gorgeous originally brick work of the same style. With Tower bridge only being 10 minutes from Bermondsey it was a perfect decision for them.

Lillibrooke Manor Wedding

Ksenia & Iain are getting married towards the end of June at Lillibrooke Manor, near Maidenhead in Berkshire. When Ksenia initially got in touch, she gave such a description of how amazing the day sounded. When the words ‘summer boho and barn’ are mentioned in the same sentence…. I mean, you know you’re onto a winner. I cannot wait to shoot and blog their wedding. Engaged to be married? Are you looking for a photographer who will put you at ease? Please don’t hesitate to get in touch here! An engagement session is a great way to settle those pre wedding jitters of having your photo taken. If this is you then I would love for you to drop me a line and give me the opportunity to settle those nerves and capture some great photos!
