Many of my clients live quite far from me and on occasion we have never actually met in person by the time they book.  This is another reason I love shooting engagement sessions, they’re a really good opportunity to not only take some portraits, but to start to get to know each other before the wedding.

I travelled to London for the day recently for 2 sessions and a meeting with another client, all 3 of whom I hadn’t met, so it was a great day out !

Richard proposed to Ailsa on the steps of St Pauls … one of my favourite locations in London, so that’s where we hung out for most of the session.  Of course, a trip across the Millenium Bridge had to be done !!  Ailsa was presented with a Cartier box, so you can imagine she spent a lot of time looking at the word on the box before Richard had to ask “so, do you like the ring, then” LOL

We had a real mixed bag of weather on the day, between showers, dark moody skies, then glorious sunshine, we certainly knew we were in London in summer !!

So, a few faves from the session … they are now married and so the wedding photos will follow … enjoy !
