I loved this recent London graduation photography session so much! Not only was this talented student celebrating her graduation from a top London University, but her parents were also celebrating a special wedding anniversary. I couldn’t wait to capture double the amount of joy with this lovely family.
We met up one afternoon at University College London on Gower Street. The front of this impressive building provided the perfect backdrop for the graduation portraits. There were also some stone stairs which looked great when the family sat down on them chatting. The steps also featured in one of my favourite images of the session. The one where this lovely student walked gracefully down them, looking every inch the graduate in her gown.
Fun London graduation photography
I also really love the photo where she throws her mortar board high up into the air. And although you can’t see it, this clever young lady managed to catch it. Pretty impressive actually!
As well as getting lots of natural portraits of this university student on her own, we also got a huge variety of the family all together. The parents were obviously hugely proud of their daughter, which I tried to capture in the images. And of course, we didn’t forget the other celebration going on – the parents’ wedding anniversary. I love the photo of the two of them, heads together, sitting on the steps.
London graduation photographer at Waterstones!
We then strolled to a nearby Waterstones, where this charming student had spent many hours during her time at university. It was lovely to use it as a backdrop for some fun walking shots, with her gown casually draped over her arm. I hope in years to come these images will remind her of some of her favourite days studying.
It was such a pleasure to photograph this lovely family and I was overjoyed to hear how happy they were with their graduation and anniversary photographs. I really hope you enjoy seeing them too.
