A Spring Engagement Shoot – Tamara and Nick’s Pre Wedding Photography
Although Tamara and Nick are getting hitched in Surrey at Busbridge Lakes, they wanted to have a London engagement photography shoot. To me this was thrilling. Being predominantly a Surrey wedding photographer does not mean that as a business I am limited to just the surrounding areas. The couple chose to have a Greenwich Park engagement shoot on a chilly morning in Spring. Finding places that are important to you as a couple is something that as a wedding photographer I encourage. Places hold special meanings to us as people which I think is important to incorporate.
Relaxed London Engagement Photography in Greenwich Park
Tamara and Nick chose this Royal Park for their engagement shoot together. The space held a special place in their hearts and was somewhere they both wanted to remember together. Since chatting they said they would have found anywhere else to have the shoot hard to pick. That is the beauty of memories, some stick out completely. Similar to a previous couple that I had the pleasure of photographing. Amy and Ruth could think of no where else but Cusworth Hall for their engagement shoot together. There are sometimes venues or places that mean an incredible amount to a couple.
To say that I am looking forward to photographing Tamara and Nick’s wedding is an understatement. Their wedding venue is a particular favourite of mine and I cannot wait to get back there. Tamara is Russian and some of the wedding traditions that she has been describing to me sound incredible. Learning about other cultures and traditions is a wonderful experience. Being present at so many ceremonies and marriages holds immense responsibility and honour.
On the morning of the shoot, all three of us met at the gates of Greenwich Park. Tamara and Nick were slightly nervous – as we all are sometimes – about having their photograph taken. As I have said before, engagement shoots are the perfect opportunity to blow away those cobwebs of doubt. We walked, chatted and took some relaxed couples portraits. Hopefully, by the end of the shoot both Tamara and Nick felt more comfortable in front of the camera. It is always wonderful when couples relay back their first impressions and Tamara’s was just that. She emailed me and said:
“Thanks so much for the photos! It was the best surprise to receive so many photos and am so glad Nick and I picked you as our photographer!”
