You know when you meet someone and you just know you’re going to get along famously? Ladies and gentleman, let me introduce you to Shimmee and Jason…

A little backstory for you. I recently ran a promotion via Facebook asking for couples to take part in some pre-wedding photography sessions, to give me a chance to add some fantastic images to my portfolio (and as an excuse to experiment and play around with a few ideas). Shortly after selecting and emailing the successful couples, Shimmee called me up and exclaimed how excited she was that she’d been selected along with her hubby-to-be Jason.

To be honest, I’ve received a fair few emails from excited couples which is always a buzz (and exactly my intention – my pre-wedding sessions are supposed to be exciting and lots of fun), but I’ve never had anyone call me up before. It was a fabulous surprise, and set the tone for the pre-wedding session itself…

I met Shimmee and Jason outside of Westminster Station on a warm Saturday evening. Those of you who know Westminster Station (and London stations in general) know how busy they can be. Especially on a Saturday evening in the summer. Yes, there were people everywhere, but this didn’t deter us as we battled our way through the crowds onto Westminster Bridge and beyond…

Shimmee and Jason were amazing and an absolute joy to photograph. We had loads of laughs, they were open to all of my ideas (even the off-the-wall ones!), and together we captured loads of great photos together. Here are some of the best ones from our jaunt around Central London:
