London Engagement Photos

Locations: St Paul’s Church in Covent Garden; the back streets of Aldwych; St Paul’s Cathedral in The City

Being an engagement photographer in London means being prepared for all weather conditions and as you can see, a rainy day couldn’t put a dampener on Laura and Johnathan’s London engagement session.  Actually, you can see how umbrellas can make such great props.

We met up in Covent Garden and hung out in one of my favourite places, the churchyard of St Paul’s.  It’s a lovely quiet enclave right in the heart of a busy tourist area.  The green space, quaint buildings and lack of crowd made it a perfect place to start our shoot, giving them the chance to hang out and be themselves, and for me to step back and observe.

Of course, portrait photography is ‘posed’, but for me, it’s the moments in between that make the image.  As you can see, there were plenty of those.
