To finish the working week, WWW real bride Katy is here to share her wonderful engagement shoot with us. They decided to stay local in South London for their shoot and I just adore these loving happy images :-) Thanks so very much to the utterly brilliant Emma Case for sharing her photographs today XOXO Lou
We had our engagement shoot just 3 weeks before our wedding, on what ended up being an extremely sunny day, and it was so much fun.
Because we were having our wedding near our parents in a countryside setting, we wanted to have our engagement photos around where we live in South London, to capture a bit of us in our normal environment. So Emma and Pete came to our flat and we headed up to the Tooting Bec lido, which is not far from us and we love it.
We had some photos around the lido and then spent some time on the common nearby. It was very relaxed, Emma and Pete are so very lovely it felt like we’d known them for ages after about 5 minutes, and they somehow made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. They captured us being ‘us’ but made us look a lot better than normal while they were at it, and we really couldn’t be happier with the photos.
With just 3 weeks til the wedding it was great practice for the day – I would highly recommend any couple have an engagement shoot just to get used to being in front of the camera. And it was great to spend the time with Emma and Pete as we got to know each other better and they then had a real feel for us and the wedding day!
Charing and Pony reside in Hong Kong and decided to head to London for their sweet engagement session.
They popped by the uber pretty Peggy Porschen Parlour for tea and cake, followed by a park picnic and row on the lake. So simple, so romantic. Perfect.
Thanks so much to Sofia Plana for sharing her lovely images today.
“We meet 10 years ago, we were colleagues (in the first company upon graduation) and friends, 2 years later we started our love story and it’s the 8th anniversary.”
If you are planning on having a love shoot, you are just going to adore these inspirational images today.
Taking inspiration from the great outdoors; Kelly Brown Photographer and Rock Paper Square got together to create this shoot with real couple Jon and Shell. I adore the cosy blankets, rustic attire and woodland setting. Dreamy.
“Always ready for an adventure, Kelly Brown Photographer and Rock Paper Square teamed up to create this fun outdoor, camping shoot inspired by the beauty of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. They took real life (and in love!) couple, Jon and Shell, out to the remote Sidney Spit Island for a day of hiking, picnicking, music making and camping. The whole island was theirs for the day, to get lost in love and explore the beauty of nature and each other.”
We’re getting super dreamy this afternoon with Kyla and Keith’s beach and woodland engagement shoot. I adore Kyla’s beautiful words about their love story and just know you guys will too.
Time to get lost in these stunning images….
Thanks so so much to Natalie J Weddings for sharing her photographs with us today.
“A true-love story that started unlike the romantic stories that have come before (trust me)…
Our souls meet beyond time and space, it was a moment of recollection, a remembering of a connection beyond our physicality.
Brought together by a chance meeting years before, yet to ripen, we waited several years to ready ourselves for our potential that was yet to be realised.”
Perhaps this morning you are having a lazy Saturday morning lie in with your loved one? Well I think this is the perfect, relaxed and dreamy viewing to ease you into the weekend :-)
Valentina and Federico headed to Giardino Lilla, nestled in the beautiful Italian countryside for their gorgeous engagement session. Think informal cool attire, hazy light and romance…
Thanks so much to Serena Cevenini for sharing her images today, here is what she had to say about the shoot;
“I discovered “Il giardino lilla” browsing on the internet and I immediately knew I had to go there with one of my couples. Giardino Lilla is a lavender field farm run by a beautiful family that one day decided to change their lifestyle and import a piece of Provence here in Italy.Valentina and Federico were the perfect couple for this session, they wanted to shoot their engagement in the nature, together with their super cute Labrador dog. Valentina totally nailed the session with her outfit and her straw hat, she really looked like a beautiful French girl – not to mention her gorgeous engagement ring. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding that will take place in a old house in the country, with a dog friendly area, of course.”
