There’s nothing quite like a London engagement shoot as there’s so much variety to inspire the photographer. So, I was very excited to meet Nandini and Josh at the Park Lane Hotel, the venue for their Hindu wedding a few weeks later, to discuss the details of their wedding day and afterwards to spend a little time around the hotel on their engagement shoot. In the end, we didn’t need to venture more than a few hundred yards from the hotel to find some interesting doorways, an amazing billboard and the tranquility of Green Park. Towards the end we were joined by a few family members and managed to squeeze in a few extra photos with them for a thoroughly enjoyable engagement shoot.
After their London engagement photoshoot Nandini and Josh still have plenty to look forward to with a Mehndi party at the Park Tower Hotel, a wedding at the Park Lane Hotel and a second wedding ceremony in Canberra for friends and family who were unable to travel over from Australia.
An engagement shoot is a great way for you to get to know your photographer ahead of your wedding day and allay any worries you might have about being photographed. Of course, I can also find out more about you too and catch up on how your wedding plans are coming together! After all, it’s usually the first time that a couple will have spent time with a professional photographer. It always amazes me to see the natural inhibitions that people have disappear after I show them a few of the shots on the back of the camera.
It’s so nice to see the couple use the photos from the session to personalise their wedding invitations, for a signing frame or even post them to social media as the excitement builds up to the big day. If you would like a photographer who would love to capture all the love, emotion and passion of your big day then don’t hesitate to drop me a message below to see if I might be lucky enough to be the one to do it!
