I love all my photography sessions for so many different reasons, but I particularly loved this Engagement Shoot in Merton, London for an extra special reason, which you’ll find out about later. The engagement shoot is a great chance for the couple to relax and get comfortable in front of the camera and it’s also an ideal opportunity to chat about all the details for the upcoming wedding day. I also really enjoy finding out more about how they first met, how they fell in love and how the proposal happened. Call me an old romantic but I was delighted when this future bride and groom chose the location for their engagement shoot to be in the exact spot where Matthew had proposed to Faye. The actual moment took place in a bandstand in a park in Merton and we wasted no time in going back to that lovely spot where the wedding day story began.
We spent a wonderful afternoon wandering around their local park, picking out their favourite places and taking some lovely portrait photographs as they told me how it all began. Some of the best shots are taken when the couple just focus on themselves and forget I am around so I like to remain as discreet as possible, adding a little direction here and there, so we get to try lots of different situations that may come up on their big day. Strangely enough, it’s not just about the photographs themselves, it’s all about getting to know each other and capturing a few tender or amusing images as they enjoy the time together. I can’t wait to capture the romance of their big day soon. They are getting married in nearby Wimbledon and after spending a couple of hours with the lovely couple I just know it’s going to best day!
