London really is the city that keeps on giving.
It always amazes me how you can live in a major city and always discover something new about it. This is exactly what happened when I recently photographed Hannah and Dominic’s engagement session in Central London. I’ve been to St James’s Park many times, but I discovered a new area of the park just behind Downing Street that I hadn’t seen before. It was here we managed to capture some gorgeous photographs in front of the fountain, just as the sun set behind Hannah and Dom and bathed them in glorious soft light…
Of course, there are many other fabulous locations in Central London to see, and we managed to include a few of these in the photos too. It wasn’t the warmest evening if truth be told, and being a Saturday evening meant there were a few (i.e. thousands!) of Londoners and tourists strolling about. We were also carrying lots of gear including a rather large flash, so I’m grateful we managed to avoid hitting anyone on the head with it on the packed Westminster Bridge! Thankfully I had my good friend and assistant Matt from Salt Photography to help me lug all the kit around the streets of London.
Most of all I’d like to thank Hannah and Dominic for being absolutely brilliant sports, and putting up with us while while we visited different locations. The final shot of this series was touch and go to be honest – I’d had the idea in my head for a while of capturing light trails while illuminating a couple, and thanks to Hannah and Dom’s patience I finally managed to pull it off…thanks guys!
