Engagement photoshoot Pergola Gardens London

Engagement shoot at the Pergola Gardens 

 

Lockdown or not, nothing stopped us from creating these romantic, full of love images for Sonia and David at the Pergola Gardens in London. The engagement shoot is part of the package they have for their wedding photography in December. 

 

A collection of images here that give a tester on how we work together and get the feel of what you expect from myself and vice versa.  


FAQs on Family Outdoor photography session

Where will we take our family portraits?

I love working on a location, nature has so much to offer. I love taking seasonal images. Autumn, Winter, Spring, Summer! such beautiful colors and flowers. I will set up a skype call and we will discuss this beforehand and select a location that you love. I tend to work mostly outdoors and in natural light, as it will give us a great variety of backdrops on nature we can use.

What should we wear?

Oh!  you need to be just as comfortable as you can With little kids running around actively and getting dirty in mud you plan the outfits that you are happy to be walking around in. We do tend to stop and have one outfit change as this helps add more color to the shoot. I will also send you a Pinterest board to give you an idea of what to wear depending on the season we are in

What locations do you cover?

I travel up to a 50-mile radius from my place HA1, and have shot at places like Gunnersbury park, Painshill Park, Regents Park, Bushy Park Holland park, and many more! 

We are looking for a mixture of candid and posed family photos. Can you do both?

Of course, I love the documentary style and capturing the images in a natural way. You cannot fake a natural smile! with kids, natural emotions are best captured when they are not aware of it.  I take some posed images too, so if you have any poses in mind I am happy to incorporate. 

When will our photos be ready, and how many will we receive?

The process takes up to  3 weeks, I edit the best 50 of the gallery and send over the link for you to choose from the batch. You can either choose 10, 20, or all. my packages are on the Family Prices page that will help you choose the best price for you.

Can we bring along the family pet?

Oh, I love pets, Dogs, Cats, Bunnies, please bring them as long as it is safe for them! 


Small Intimate wedding at the Old Marylebone Town Hall London

As the times are changing and evolving, there has been increased in Many couples booking small weddings until summer next year and have another reception next year in 2021. I have so many couples who have changed their plans this year.

This does not have to stop you and your family from marking your wedding in 2020. This Small Intimate wedding at the Old Marylebone Town Hall London proved we can still celebrate love in a smaller scale and then next year we can have a big celebration.

 

Birhan opted for Old Marylebone town hall with her intimate groups of people who attended the ceremony. Iowas in the awe of how beautiful the day went. We also had enough time to walk around the area and have some couples shots for the portrait session. I never miss an opportunity to capture some group shots too, we also were able to try out the social distancing group shot on the stairs of the Town Hall.


Couples shoot in North London

Bhav and Kirk got married in August 2010, so it was just fitting we turn the time back and went back to their wedding venue to get some anniversary photos. I went to their wedding and it was so amazing. We absolutely got smashed and danced till the early hours.

I have known Bhav for more than 12 years now and during this time she got married and now lives with her husband and her two gorgeous girls in North London.

 

When Bhav messaged me she would like to gift a photoshoot to her husband I was so excited and of course, was happy to capture this moment. With the social distancing in place, we were mostly shooting from afar. I have some images to show you here, please enjoy them and leave a comment if you wish too xx


Engagement Party Ruislip London

Suren and Ria’s engagement party at the Venue 5 in Ruislip, London

 

Suren and Rai booked me where they wanted to capture some natural shots of the event. Of course, Indian ceremonies are very lenghty and pricise. So many details to consider when you are photographing the day. I was at the venue from the morning and then in the evening for the engagement party.

 

Here the two families came together and celebrate the engagement of Suren and Ria. I love how everyone was in such a joyous mood all day that it flew by so fast.

Here are some portraits of Suren and Ria that we were able to snap just before they evening party.


Alternative wedding at the Shenley club, Radlett, Hertfordshire

Wedding at the Shenley Cricket club , Radlett, Hertfordshire

 

Where did the day start?

At the Hilton Hotel Watford. I joined Sarah and her bridesmaids at the bridal room at 8:30 am to capture the moments before the wedding ceremony and the bridal getting ready. The main reason was that Austin, their son was going to come and visit early before all busy day and wish his parents good luck. I love these moments as these are some moments that the couples will remember through the photographs.

 

Sarah then started getting ready for her 1 pm ceremony with her bridesmaids. The laughter in the room was uncontrollable. I really loved the moment when the bridesmaids had the first look at Sarah in her wedding dress.

 

Sarah’s Dad surprised her with the wedding car he hired for the day which was absolutely royal!.

 

The Ceremony

The ceremony was at the Shenley cricket club, amongst their close friends and family. Sarah rocked her wedding dress with a black diamante silk belt and her personalised Converses which matched with Sam’s too. the dress was from David Bridal.

The Reception.

Sarah and Sam danced on Digital Bath by Deftones for their first dance. It was so electric. The reception also had the Gaming consoles and a wrestling theme through the venue. Did is mention they are a big Game of Thrones fans? They even had their tables named after the game of Thrones houses.

 

Sarah and Sam’s wedding was so much fun, it had a chilled out vibes and lots of laughter.

When it’s raining we are not very happy but what if it snows. It was such a romantic day and we absolutely loved having the shoot in the snow. The grounds were all-white matching the theme of the day, Reds, Whites and Blacks. Surely this was planned!

Peckham engagement shoot

This adorable couple is so gorgeous and had me swooning over these images since I took them. It was a beautiful sunny day in Peckham, London and we decided to take a stroll through the spring blossoms. Bride to be Kennedy who wore a checkered dungaree and groom to be Datham in his double denim look looked ever so trendy and hip. Kenndey’s hair is absolutely to die for and this is one of my favorite pre-wedding shoots so far.
