Sophie and Patrick
I always love capturing London engagement photography and I always love working with couples like Sophie and Patrick. We met up on a hot day in June in London’s famous Royal Regents Park.
I always recommend couples book an engagement shoot. You would say that I hear you cry, but hear me out. Engagement shoots are a great way for the two of you to get used to being photographed before your wedding day. And I can give you tips and advice on how to relax in front of the camera.
Many of my couples go on to use the images from the engagement shoot in their wedding stationery.
Natural London engagement photography
My photographic style is always natural and authentic so I wanted Sophie and Patrick to have fun and just forget about the camera. This approach allowed me to capture Sophie and Patrick as they actually are, interacting with each other in an effortless and natural way. Nothing posed or forced, but as you can see, looking their absolute best!
On the day I met up with Sophie and Patrick and given the location and the heat of the day we did the only sensible thing and got ourselves an ice cream. We then sat down for a chat. I find getting to know my couples a little before the shoot starts really helps them to relax and gives them a chance to talk about their expectations from the shoot and air any anxieties they may have about being photographed.
Creative Regents Park engagement photography
Once refreshed, we walked through Queen Mary’s Garden and into the hidden Japanese Garden Island to start the shoot. Regents Park’s Japanese Garden Island is one of London’s well-kept secrets. It has a secret waterfall and beautiful plants that make the perfect backdrop in engagement shoot images. I got some lovely images of Sophie and Patrick on a pretty bridge overlooking the gardens.
After walking back through Queen Mary’s world-famous Rose Garden with its record breaking 12,000 roses, we took a walk along the lake and stopped to take some romantic portrait images of Sophie and Patrick in the low hanging trees. They were amongst my favourites on the day. Here, take a look!
Beautiful engagement photography in London
We then moved into an area of the park with tall grasses and got some fun images. Sophie and Patrick were up for making it fun and the images I got really captured their easy going and fun-loving natures.
There’s a saying that couples who play together, stay together. So, I don’t think anyone needs to worry about these two!
I loved the hour spent with Sophie and Patrick shooting their Regents Park engagement photography. It was so easy and laid back it just felt like meeting up with friends for an ice cream, a chat and a walk.
