I loved this Christmas couples photography session so much. And it actually produced one of my favourite images of 2022! The couples portrait, from a session in Covent Garden, is the first one below. This lovely couple were on holiday in London just before Christmas. And we got a fantastic selection of photographs of them wandering around Covent Garden. They were such a great couple and I thought the colourful, cobbled street matched their fun personalities (and colourful clothes) perfectly!
I know Covent Garden really well and it’s one of my favourite locations for my London photography sessions. It’s full of charm and quirky side streets, and so many interesting backgrounds.
Christmas couples photography in Neals Yard
We began our London couples photography session in Neals Yard, a colourful little courtyard full of restaurants and cafés. It’s fairly tucked away, and is often a lovely surprise for the families or couples I’m photographing.
After this we made our way along Shelton Street to another of my favourite backdrops in Covent Garden, a bright yellow shop called Grosvenor Prints. As well as providing a wonderfully fun background, the shop is also one of the few remaining shops dealing in antique books and prints.
Fun portraits with red telephone boxes!
We then found a row of red telephone boxes which looked great in some more couples portraits. After this we took several photos alongside the magnificent columns of the Royal Opera House and we then made our way to the Apple Market in the heart of Covent Garden. Here you can find a wide range of market stalls, offering unique handmade crafts and goods. You can also find some distinctive green columns, which look great in family and couples portraits.
A festive couples photography session
We ended this wonderful London couples photography session with a festive feel. The beautifully decorated Christmas trees next to the market provided a perfect Christmassy background, and we also found a lovely shop nearby decorated with candy canes and a bright red sleigh. I enjoyed spending time with this lovely couple so much and was really happy with the variety of images from our session.
