London Engagement in the heart of Belgravia

 

Happy Valentines day all you loved up couples out there! Gosh I sound just like a San Fransisco radio station early in the morning. The Fine Cheese Co. in Belgravia  will be the the best decision to photograph your London Engagement shoot. Not only is it cheesy (no pun of course) but full of atmosphere. 

 

The most romantic outdoor cafe in London

 

I met Azi & Tiva a couple of months ago and knew from the first moment it would be a joy to photograph them. Azi loved the cream luxurious feels of Belgravia for an Engagement shoot in London. She also liked the idea to start the session off at a cute street cafe. Who will say no to red wine? It definitely get’s everyone in the mood. The sun was just setting on a hot sunny day in the city. The cafe was perfectly shadowed for the purest light a girl could ask for. Instantly Tiva had the charm, giving Azi sweet kisses and just being in the moment with her. She giggled away and I got camera ready! Afterwards we took a little stroll around the corner and discovered the most incredible crescent that complimented their outfits so beautifully.

Being a London Photographer can be challenging, planning your shoots around busy periods in the city. Shooting in Lush neighbourhoods has become such a safe haven as it’s quiet enough to let the shoot flow in it’s own right without any disruptions! 

 

That’s all the romance for one day!

Are you ready for some romance in the air London lovers? Be prepared for a whole lot of hearts skipping a beat. Caila and Nick are all the way from the big apple. Yes, New York City! I am super blessed to be able to meet such gorgeous personalities but also to be able to capture them as a truly devoted London Couple Photographer. How lucky am I?

 

ABOUT THE SESSION

Dear London…Wake up with us.

 

 

Little miss sunshine (Caila Quinn) got up at the crack of dawn with her man (he must be in love) just to enjoy the centre of London, Buckingham Palace tourist free! Oh and to catch some gorgeous rays of course, among other things like…you know, kisses. As soon as I saw them approaching around the corner with coffees in hand, I knew this will be a session close to my heart. We started the shoot chatting all things life and gosh, I got instantly distracted by the gorgeous sight of St James. Victorian buildings with massive doorways with the sun shining through the little corners. Mid conversation I started to snap away! The chemistry is just electrifying between Caila and Nick, no seriously…Saying they are cute is an understatement.

Living in London as a wedding photographer, I do see it in another light. Everything has a different look and feel to it and my aim is to bring it alive through my camera. With that comes spontaneous location choosing to keep things fresh and also to keep inspiring yourself with the unknown. I’ve actually never had a couple session in St James / Buckingham Palace area but seeing Caila’s personality on instagram I had a feeling she would just connect with it! You can’t get a more London feel with a NYC twist can you?! If your looking for a couple photographer in London, please get in touch here fore more details. Would love to capture your story!

Destination Wedding Photographer | Prague Engagement 

 

Based as a London photographer, I am spoiled for choice but we do love to venture out! We travelled to the most beautiful historical city for a weekend to photograph a spectacular destination Wedding in the heart of Prague. Have I told you lately how happy I am to be a Wedding photographer? I brings out the very best in me! We woke up at 5 am the next morning to catch the sunrise for this elegant couple session. We were so inspired by the historical nature of the old Charles bridge, iconic to say the least! Our couple shoot started in the cutest pebbled street right next to the bridge. My eyes caught the most bold and beautiful staircase leading to the 14th century bridge. Don’t you just love it when one location gives you so much to work with?

 

Prague’s gothic nature enhanced the boldness of this look

 

I have to admit it, I am a fan of angles, capturing motion and natural light. We were blessed with all that and more, and by more I mean this sleek little black number by Needle and ThreadI loved every detail and flow of this evening dress. The gothic nature of Prague definitely enhanced the boldness of this look.

How to choose your location to match your couple

 

The most important task whilst planning your couple’s engagement shoot in my opinion! London is filled with the most incredible architecture and landscapes that it could really be overwhelming knowing what style and vibe is yours as a couple. Being a London photographer I roam these vibrant streets to find bright and airy spots on a weekly basis. Honestly not only for my inspiration but also for my piece of mind. I had the pleasure to photograph this super chic and stylish South Kensington Engagement with my fabulously romantic couple, Michelle and Jordan. 

 

South Kensington is a heavenly place to set the tone for a London engagement shoot

 

Meeting Michelle, I knew she spoke my language. Interests such as travel and Fashion l knew I was in for a treat. We met at South Kensington and made our way to the stunning Onslow Square. For those who haven’t been, you are missing out on the purest white heavenly place. I had a feeling a location thats neutral and simplistic would fit their personalities all too well. The best part is how quiet the area is, the perfect opportunity to get comfortable with each other and of course for them to feel at ease with me.    

Hope this feeds all London couples some Valentines day romance and a potential Valentines gift idea for a special someone. For bookings get in touch.

DUBAI INSPIRED COUPLE SHOOT IN CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA 

 

I’ve had this photography dream to be a Dubai photographer and to shoot a couple in a chic simplistic setting surrounded by nature. Our trip to South Africa could not be completed without a Dubai inspired session in Hout bay, Cape Town.

This is one special location! We drove up to the coast passing the most picturesque fisherman’s town of Hout bay. As soon as Chris and Nadia made their stunning appearance I could just feel the attraction they have for each other. Both of them smiling ear to ear I knew they would be so comfortable in front of my lens and be as playful as little loved up kids. Chris is a DJ and also the most creative photographer/videographer and travels all over the world with his stunning Nadia that’s his muse! For anyone that’s experienced shooting another photographer can be daunting but in this case everything just faded perfectly into place.

 

DUBAI PHOTOGRAPHER | 28 June – 8 July 

 

Style for a shoot is always a must in my books. We went for a chic and minimal look to showcase the very best emotion between the two. You can never go wrong with a classic black and white. My favourite time to shoot is sunset as the dunes are the brightest of whites it can overpower the couple and we all know I am all for the soft romantic feels. A connection is so important, I like to step back and just let my couple interact and feel the moment of them just being there, together. Normally during this time true emotion will show and that’s when I come in! Can you spot the moment in this gallery? For me it’s when he comfortably hugs her and her smile gives it all away… 

Get inspired by Chris and Nadia’s outlook on life and creativity on their instagram profiles below.

ELEGANT ENGAGEMENT SHOOT IN SINGAPORE

 

There’s a time and place for everything they say, this was definitely the place for a elegant engagement shoot in Singapore. We were so excited to photograph Ben and Samantha just before they get married at the stunning Chijmes

I just love meeting people and getting right down to business! Haha, as soon as I saw their lovely gazes towards each other I just knew this will be a breeze. We walked towards my favourite spots that we scouted before to be a bit more prepared. It can be daunting in a city that’s the unknown. We found perfect locations actually in the same area when they’re getting married. It made me feel like this shoot will be extra special as it will mean something to them.

Singapore is one of my favourite cities that I have ever visited (other than London) It’s just so modern but also Victorian at the same time. I’m always in search of my style, what would fit my brand best? City scape or Europe feels… Well that one was easy! The dream for my engagement sessions is to bring warmth and calmness to my couples, even if your walking across a busy street. Believe me, you are walking to a cute secluded location that you will adore!

 

See my five top location in London for the perfect couple shoot here.
