Best of 2013

December 30, 2013

It’s that time again! My 2013 round-up of some of my favourite wedding photos, engagement photos, and other pictures I’ve taken this year! It’s a pretty big post… turns out I had a lot more favourites than I thought. Which, of course, is good, and I can’t complain!

Thanks to all the wonderful people in these photos who made my job really easy this year, by just turning up and being fantastic clients from the get-go! My photos wouldn’t be half as good if you didn’t look so awesome in them. :-) And I wouldn’t have had nearly as much fun as I did in 2013 if you all weren’t so damn fun to work with! So here’s to continuing friendships and hoping that my 2014 couples are just as lovely!

And some of my previous roundups:

A Victorian Engagement in Highgate {Madeleine & Edward}

December 5, 2013

Madeleine and Edward are two wonderful, creative individuals who do things their way. With their love of Victoriana and Steampunk, their wedding next year at Kew Bridge Steam Museum and Strawberry Hill House is going to be centred around that style (eeek! So excited!), and of course their engagement shoot had to fit in with the theme! Not that it required much dressing up on their part, as they pointed out, because this is how they like to dress anyway. I love the whole Victorian feel, so I was thrilled, and even more so when they suggested doing part of the shoot in the Highgate cemetery, which is one of the most beautiful in North London. Of course, we were nearly rained out, but we fought back bravely (and had some coffee to wait it out), and in the end we got some gorgeous autumny shots. Even Edward’s cello and Madeleine’s huge book of Chaucer survived!

Engagement in Epping Forest, North London {Isla & Lauren}

June 26, 2013

Lauren and Isla are getting married in July in London, so they suggested Epping Forest as a contrast for their pre-wedding session. It was the windiest of windy days, threatening rain the entire time, but I freaking love big black clouds in my photos, so I embraced it all! :-)

I love pre-wedding photo shoots.  It’s such a good opportunity to get to know each other, and for the couple to get comfortable in front of the camera, and with the way I work (which is minimal direction, trying to keep everything as natural as possible). My biggest aim with all my couple shoots is to capture smiles and love and happiness, and I think I totally succeeded with Lauren and Isla! We also ended up chatting on the walk and the train back into central London, and discovered that we have all sorts of things in common, which is always fantastic. Lauren and I both used to work in bookshops, and we had more stories than we could ever share about crazy customers! Isla is as obsessed with Smash as I am, and we all love The Princess Bride, discovering that we even attended the same Quote-Along event at the Prince Charles Theatre in London last year! And they’re using some of the music in their wedding, which is brilliant, and will make me teary. :-)
