3 tips to help you rock your engagement shoot

Most of us haven't had a professional photo taken since school and unless this is just my teenage self coming back to haunt me, it wasn't the most exciting or comfortable experience. It's therefore only natural to be a tiny bit anxious as you edge to your wedding day, and hoping your photographer doesn't insist on putting everyone in height order before taking the group shots.

Holland Park Engagement Session Preview: Stephen and Ee Laine

I just wanted to share a little preview of Stephen and Ee Laine's engagement shoot.

We met at Holland Parkin West London, a park I haven't visited often and when I do, I wonder why I don't. It has peacocks who know how to shake a tail feather!

Portpatrick Engagement Shoot: Gemma and George

The gorgeous village of Portpatrick in Dumfries and Galloway, south-west Scotland, was the location of Gemma and George's engagement shoot.

The weather wasn't always on our side, but we didn't let that stop us.

Looking forward to their wedding in September, but for now, here are a few from Friday's shoot.

Sneak Peek: Suzanne and Graham's Southbank Engagement

I can't wait to shoot Suzanne and Graham's wedding this Friday. We had such a great time at the weekend shooting their engagement session, especially as summer has finally reached London!

Though Suzanne and I went to school together, we haven't seen each other in years, so it was great when she got in touch a few months ago about her wedding. I don't think we stopped laughing the whole time, well maybe when we were eating ice cream, but just for a couple of seconds!

Cannizaro Park Engagement Shoot: Letitia and León

I am a bit behind with my blogging, please forgive me….I seem to have let myself be overwhelmed with workload but I am slowly going to get back on track!

I am really excited to share this engagement shoot with you. Letitia and I met while travelling through Central America back in 2008. Fast forward a few years and here we are, a few months before her wedding to León.

Whitworth Park, Manchester Engagement Shoot

A few weeks ago I travelled up to Manchester to photograph Leila and Gareth's engagement. They met in Manchester while at uni so it seemed like a very good place for their shoot, so full of memories.

We had such a great afternoon with no rain - a real rarity for Manchester. It was a rather grey day in Manchester you 're having such a good time, who cares?!

Thanks to Leila and Gareth, for being brilliant, for being silly and for such a great day. Can't wait for your wedding next month!


South Bank Engagement Shoot: Hayley & Aaron!

Back in January I exhibited at my first wedding fair, The Alternative Wedding Fair at the Piccadilly Institute. During the fair, I ran a competition, along with my co-exhibitor Postscript Events, for one lucky couple to win an engagement shoot by me and on the day wedding coordination by Postscript Events.

Sneak Peek: Hayley and Aaron's Engagement Shoot - South Bank, London

I can't believe what a fun couple Hayley and Aaron were. Also - how cute do they look together?! After a week of very uncertain weather, it was a lovely sunny day in London, perfect for a fun day along the South Bank. Here are a few photos from their engagement session yesterday. I will be blogging more photos soon, so don't forget to pop back!

Hattie and Oli's Engagement Shoot - Battersea Park

I first met Hattie and Oli a few months ago after my brother referred them to me. We met for coffee, well peppermint tea for me as coffee makes me want to sleep - yes I know that is weird, we all have our quirks - and hit it off straight away.
