GORGEOUS GREENWICH LONDON COUPLES ENGAGEMENT PHOTOSHOOT
This very lovely London pre-wedding shoot has a very special purpose. On the surface it looks like your average London couples engagement shoot. Smiling faces, couple walking hand in hand around Greenwich. But behind the images, lurks a very familiar story. Sarah and Tim are from the US and had planned on a Spring London engagement shoot with a wedding in September back home in New York. But then Corona happened, and like many others their plans changed.
First post-Corona-Virus engagement shoot
After postponing our shoot dates together to comply with government guidelines, we finally met on a sunny September morning. Coincidentally it was the morning of what should have been their wedding. Which gave extra meaning to this London pre-wedding shoot. We met in Greenwich Park and chatted a little about how different life was at this current moment. It was important to acknowledge that in the space where warm greeting hugs were, there were little waves and elbow grazes!
Choosing Greenwich as a location was very special to the couple. Having a London couples engagement shoot was important to them both. They only lived a short walk away and had spent much of their lockdown time walking around the park with their dog. Before a shoot I always like to ask couples to pick a location that has a particular meaning for them (if they have a place.) This gives the engagement shoot an extra layer of intimacy, as it is a place where you have a connection. It was the perfect setting. The right mix of Summer ending and Autumn appearing. A bright crisp morning with warm sunshine plus a whole lot of love and laughter thrown in too!
It Just Goes To Show That Corona Cannot CANCEL Love
Thank you for looking through Sarah and Tim’s London couples engagement shoot
Photographing couples in love is such a passion of mine. I especially love a London pre-wedding shoot and get very excited when photographing anywhere around town. Take for example Siobhan and Amy’s Southbank engagement shoot or Anoushka and Laurie’s South Farm wedding.
In a previous blog post I discussed what the Schitt’s Creek wedding could teach us about postponed Covid weddings – in light of this postponed wedding London couples engagement shoot it might be just what you are looking for?
