Stunning London Engagement Photos - Ksenia & Iain

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!

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!

Hampshire Engagement Photography, Andover - C & L

Spring Engagement Photography

Catherine and Luke's engagement photography session was a spring dream, I am so excited to photograph their wedding next year! This was my first engagement photography session within my current home town of Andover so I was super stoked to be able to showcase some of the beauty Andover has to offer! Andover countryside is a gift of woodland, water, wildlife and lets not forget those beautiful rapeseed oil fields which is the perfect place to get some beautiful private photos. Everywhere we went seemed such an underused place, but benefited us! This is a small selection of Catherine and Lukes engagement photography photos, but ones I really love. Seeing the current weather reminded me of this, as it's one of my favourite engagement photography shoots I've done this year.

Andover Engagement Photos

It was a slightly chilly but the sun still shining on this late afternoon just before the clocks went back when me Luke and Catherine headed out. The gorgeous spring colours really came through, and how amazing do Catherine and Luke look in complementary colours? They really put lots of effort in to what they wore and braved the cold when they took their coats off! It truly was the perfect day for some engagement photography, and I hope Catherine and Luke really enjoyed the results because of the effort they had put in. I'm sure to be blogging their wedding over the spring months next year, so keep checking back for a sneaky peak!

Some people worry that they're not 'photogenic', lack confidence, have been engaged for a long time already, or don't know where to go. On all counts, there's no need to worry. My job and my talent is to make everyone photogenic (including a successful shoot with the in-laws!) there's no need to worry, we go somewhere which means something to you and have a walk. I take photos when you're comfortable, and then it comes to your wedding day, there's no stress. These sessions are simply a chance to get some gorgeous photos with whoever you want, wherever and whenever. Imagine what you would like framed on your walls, and we can create it.

Rooksbury Mill Nature Reserve

I can't end this beautiful set of images without mentioning Catherines favourite place to go growing up in Andover, Rooksbury Mill Lakes! I had no idea these lakes where here, in fact I had trouble finding them all together. If you're ever in the area this beautiful nature reserve is a must see, I mean just scroll towards the end of this blog post to see how stunning these lakes look as the sun goes down, and the beautiful Catherine and Luke just make them even more stunning. Of course, these engagement photography shoots can be done separately to your wedding or even if your not engaged to be married! They're a wonderful opportunity to have photographs of loved ones out and about and having fun. So, if you are interested in a similar shoot, get in touch! Memories like these make a wonderful birthday present or Christmas presents (ah I said it, Christmas! 6 months to go folks!) to everyone in the family. Here's another couples shoot from the spring, on another gorgeous brisk, sunny day!

Get in touch to find out my availability for your wedding or couple shoot, whether your Hampshire bound, or anywhere else I would love to hear from you!

London Engagement | Emily & Andy

Richmond Park Wedding Photographer

Emily & Andy

Another engagement session from me! If your every wondering is a engagement shoot worth it? Well it's a big ole yes from me. It's a chance for my couples to get used to the camera and kinda like a mini pre run of their big day so it is always worth doing. Also I haven't been on a engagement shoot yet where I haven't had a good laugh with my couple. Anyway this isn't a sales pitch so please see below a few of my favourite frames from Emily and Andy's engagement session in Richmond park. These guys were so much fun and truly in love as Andy gave up the chance to watch his beloved Chelsea play live in the cup final, Andy your putting us all too shame! You may notice my photos start to be a bit more vibrant as I've decided to add more punchy colours to my edits and might of started a little bit of an obsession with black and white frames too. Anyway enough of me going please see below. Richmond Park Wedding Photographer

Hertfordshire Engagement | Claudia & Terry

Spring engagement shoot

Claudia and Terry's Hertfordshire engagement shoot was a spring dream come true. Who would of guessed that this gem of a location existed in the heart of Hertfordshire? Dockley woods is one of the most popular places to see such a dense oray of bluebells in the country, these woods really are a gift of colour, woodland and peacefulness. This is a small selection of photographs, but ones I really love. Seeing such amazing colours always reminds me of these bluebells and I am yet to see a better spot for such beauty for a Hertfordshire engagement shoot.

It was a gorgeous hot sunny spring Sunday afternoon with the sunshine beating through the forest canopy. The park was closing but we managed to talk the national trust steward to lets us in for some photos as long as we where quick. So with time against us we quickly did a big loop around this beautiful setting, with the colours from the bluebells popping around every corner. I get a lot of my couples ask " is a engagement shoot really necessary" to which I reply of course!

This is a chance for just the three of us to go for a walk in a location of your choice and allow you both to get comfortable around me and the scary camera. Everyone who I have photographed have always complimented me on the time we have together which I hold close to my heart as for me it's all about connections and a couple in love is the biggest connection you will find and this is a pleasure to capture.My shoots have no limits to how many photos I take, there simply a chance to get some great photographs with whoever you want, wherever you want. I often tell my couple to think of a photo of what they would like to be framed on the wall and we can go create that photo.

Dockley Woods National Trust

These shoots can be arranged separate to your wedding day or if you just wanted some photos of your partner and your not engaged. They are a wonderful opportunity to have some fun and get some stunning photographs in a relaxed comfortable environment. So if you are interested in a similar shoot, get in touch! Bring the kids, the grandparents or the dogs?! I have availability over the next couple of months as we head towards the wedding season. Memories like these also make great presents for friends and family, why not treat a loved one or surpise the other half. Here's a link to another spring engagement shoot I captured near the coast of Eastbourne, a similar gorgeous sunny day.

Guildford Engagement | Annie & Tim

Guildford Engagement Photography

Last weekend I had the pleasure of meeting up with Annie & Tim for their pre wedding engagement shoot. A lot of photographers like to dictate where they take there couples, I however don't like to do this. I want my couples to be in a familiar comfortable environment, as I feel when my couples are relaxed I can truly get some great shots. From a photographer's point of view I also feel that by doing this, it pushes my creativeness as I have never been to the location before so it's all very new. On this engagement shoot Annie & Tim took me too their favourite running spot within Hatchlands park, and what a great park and a first for me to do some guildford engagement photography. These two are such a lovely couple and we had a blast taking photos and telling jokes along the way. We even risked it all and jumped into a field with bulls running around to get some fun photos, don't worry the bulls didn't mind us and we were all prepared to run for the hills! I cannot wait to photograph their wedding later in the year. Anyway here are a few of my favourite photos from our time together. Guildford Wedding Photographer.
