Greenwich London Engagement Shoot | Holly + Simon

Greenwich London Engagement Shoot | Holly + Simon

The lovely Holly and Simon met me at a pub by the train station in Greenwich at the start of their engagement shoot, because A. It was raining far too hard to go out and shoot and B. They wanted a quick drink to steady their nerves! It can be a little daunting to be photographed together in a public place but I’m always down for starting with a chat over some drinks/coffees/teas/whatevers.

Apart from driving you into the pub, the other great thing about rain is that it clears the streets. We had a normally very busy part of London pretty much to ourselves, apart from the odd hardcore sightseer. It’s so lovely around Greenwich and the river and you soon find some cute places for photos.


When you smile I see STARS IN THE SKY, when you smile I see sunrise. And I know you’ve been thinking of me and I know how you want it to be …

Brighton Engagement Shoot | Tien + Kenzo

Can we come down to Brighton for our Engagement Shoot? Well of course! I love it when folk come down to my home town for these. I don’t think I will ever run out of places to shoot. Tien and Kenzo are probably two of the busiest people you will ever meet so they love to make the most of any days off that they get together.

We met for coffee and they told me that they completely clash on style. Kenzo would love everything to be minimal and Tien loves junk and antique shops. So we had a wander around the North Laines in Brighton. Part designer shops, part crazy old bric a brac shops – so everyone was pretty happy! Also how pretty are Tien’s pink boots!?


They say, oh my god, I see the way you shine. TAKE YOUR HAND, my dear and place them both in mine …


Kings Cross St Pancras Engagement Shoot | Charlotte + Will

Kings Cross St Pancras Engagement Shoot | Charlotte + Will

Do you have a favourite London Train station? I do for sure, it’s London St Pancras. I cannot tell you how much I adore it, it’s the city’s most romantic station. And it bloody well knows it! There’s a giant statue of a couple snogging for a start, then the incredible Tracey Emin light sculpture that says “I Want My Time With You”. I love that you can get on a train in the morning that will take you into the heart of Paris by lunchtime.

The light is incredible in there thanks to the amazing glass roof and then there are the dark little nooks and crannies of the Renaissance Hotel. It was made for lovers, not business meetings. So when Charlotte and Will suggested meeting there for their engagement shoot, I was very excited. We loved shooting there and finished up by shooting in the sister station Kings Cross so we could get a picture surrounded by moving people with my couple standing still in the middle.


If you rise or if you fall, you can hand it all to someone who believes in you and cares for you and SHARES THAT TIME with you. I need and I want and I love my time with you …


Brighton Pier Engagement Shoot | Jen + Pip

Brighton Pier Engagement Shoot | Jen + Pip

Jen and Pip decided to make a proper break out of it for their engagement shoot in sunny Brighton and took some time away from both wedding planning and parenthood by booking into a hotel for a couple of nights. We met for drinks and chatted about how they met at school and how life was now with a young baby.

Then we took a stroll along the beach and onto the pier. It’s such a fun and colourful place and though it’s always busy, you can usually find some little nooks and crannies away from the crowd. Are you planning your engagement shoot? Come to my home town and we can have some seaside fun!


And they said that when we grew up, we’d GET MARRIED and never split up …


Brighton Engagement Shoot | Lucy + Jacob

Brighton Engagement Shoot | Lucy + Jacob

Lucy and Jacob were planning their London wedding but live in Brighton so we decided to do their engagement shoot around the seafront. First of all we met at their favourite place to get coffee in the North Laines and then wandered down to the beach stopping when something caught our eye.

There’s always something fresh to shoot in Brighton and this pair were so crazy in love with each other that it was super easy to shoot them. I’ve now shot their wedding (I’m that fast at blogging!) and if you pick up a copy of the latest Rock n Roll Bride magazine you can see a lovely feature on it.

Brighton Engagement Shoot | Amanda + Rob

Brighton Engagement Shoot | Amanda + Rob

Brighton is such a lovely place for an engagement shoot. I never run out of ideas and new spots to shoot in. Amanda and Rob fancied a day out down here so we met up to wander around. They have spent many happy days here before wandering around the Lanes, chilling in a pub and having a mocha in their favourite shop Snoopers Paradise.

So that is exactly what we did for their engagement shoot and it was lovely hanging out with them. For me, it’s lovely to get to know people a little and to see how they fit together ahead of the wedding day. For the couple, it’s good to take some time out of the wedding planning and this pair stayed down for some dinner to make the most of the day.


Wouldn’t it be nice if we could wake up in the morning when the day is new, and after having spent the DAY TOGETHER, hold each other close the whole night through …
