It’s been a quiet winter away from the wedding season and I’ve missed it. It was excited to dust off my camera and head to London for a few consultations and some engagement sessions in the City. First up, Laura and Henry. We started in their beautiful home and then headed out in to Hampstead to see what we could find. I love the spontaneity of these shoots. Pick pretty place at right time of day and see what happens. Love getting to know people too. As most of my friends will know I’m more of an observer than a big talker. But I find these shoots provide a great opportunity to get to know people on a slightly deeper level. I think that’s kind of necessary when photographing two people in love and that’s why I enjoy doing them.
I really enjoyed this session and here are a handful of my favourites.
(Okay, so check out the first shot. Probably my favourite photograph of the year so far. Just for fun I asked Laura and Henry to throw these playing cards in to the air. I had a vision, and whilst it didn’t totally work out we did get this photograph which I absolutely LOVE. If you look close enough you’ll see that the Ace of Hearts has somehow separated itself from the pack and is at a great angle to the camera. No photoshop trickery – hand on heart.)
