LGBT Engagement Shoot in London

Charles and Clément’s Pre Wedding shoot in Greenwich Park

I always love capturing engagement photography in London.  Charles and Clément chose Greenwich Park for their spring time engagement shoot.  The park is familiar ground for these two as Charles used to teach music at Trinity Laban at the Old Naval College, that sits on the park and enjoys stunning views across it.

I always love capturing Green Park engagement photography because I love the park’s mix of nature and urban, with views of the Thames and of course the majestic architecture of the Old Naval College.  Add to that the optimism that early spring brings to nature and you have everything you need for a fantastic location for London engagement photography.   

We met on a clear day in March, had a quick catch up and then just headed off for a walk to see where it would take us.  For engagement photography, I like to capture my couples as they would normally be.  In this case, a couple just walking through a park and enjoying one another’s company.   I like the images to look natural, almost paparazzi style.  But of course, with my couples looking their casual best.

Charles and Clément, though not used to being photographed, threw themselves into it and were really fun and so easy going to work with.    Which I think reflects in the images I got. 

I always recommend couples book an engagement shoot.  Engagement shoots are a great way for the two of you to get used to being photographed by me before your wedding day.  And I can give you tips and advice on how to relax in front of the camera.  It’s a chance to get any minor anxieties or concerns about being photographed out of the way before the wedding.   We then headed up to the Old Naval College and took some really lovely images of Charles and Clément on the impressive colonnades.  And the images of them on the path with the Old Naval College as the backdrop were my favourites of the day.

Many of my couples go on to use the images from the engagement shoot in their wedding stationery. 

We then headed to the riverside and got some great images of Charles and Clément with Greenwich and Canary Wharf as a backdrop.  We ended with a sit down in the gardens and I captured a romantic portrait image of the two of them.  It was perfect image to end the shoot with.   

I loved capturing Charles and Cléments romantic LGBT engagement shoot in London.  They were great company and a dream to work with.  Working with these guys and looking at these images, has made me look forward to capturing their wedding at Pembroke Lodge in August even more!
