While many couples celebrate big occasions such as their wedding, they often forget about the day they get engaged. I’m a London based photographer who can help you record this important moment in your life, producing memorable images that you can keep and treasure for many years to come.
You don’t have to settle on a static shot of yourself and your loved one in a studio setting presenting the obligatory ring. One of the great pleasures of being an engagement photographer in London is that there are plenty of brilliant locations you can choose from. A more candid, journalistic approach undoubtedly produces images that stick in the mind and bring a smile to the face.
As a photographer, my job is not only to take eye-catching images but to make sure we get the right tone. You might want to go back to the place where you first met and take some pictures there. You may have a favourite location that means something to you or perhaps you’re planning on having an engagement party that you want to record. Inviting a professional engagement photographer along can be the icing on the cake.
Creating Atmospheric Engagement Photos
They say a picture paints a thousand words and you’ll want a series of images that say something about your love for each other. This is difficult to achieve when you are sat, carefully posed, even for the most exceptional photographer. Using the journalistic approach and getting you to relax in comfortable settings is much better at getting images which stick in the mind.
It takes a lot of experience to see the right moment, when the light is just right and the affection between a couple shines through. I work by putting my clients at ease and talking through the types of images they want. That could be a classy black and white shot of you walking down a cobbled street together or a candid moment caught as you enjoy a drink together at a local London café.
Finding the Right Engagement Photographer in London
It can be difficult to find the right person to follow you around and take photos. Many will simply stand you in a street or in one set location and snap away. I prefer to look at all the different angles and settings that can produce great and memorable images.
That doesn’t mean I’ll always be stood in front of you snapping away. I might see an opportunity for a shot from the bridge above or an office window or how the local environment can be used to create an image that has some greater resonance. I’ll also talk through locations with you beforehand, helping you to find the best place for a photo shoot and one that ultimately means a lot to you.
