Let’s head for the city I said to Mike & Ines, we’ll get something cool and a bit different. There are lots of unusual space around the Waterloo area of the city. We only had a very short amount of time anyway, and we were very unlucky with the weather, so the most important thing for me to do was capture the heartwarming dynamic it’s clear that Mike & Ines have. They are such a great couple to be around, so much fun and honest. We headed out into the rain and moved around real quick, this actually worked well for Mike & Ines because they have so much energy.
We headed into the Surrey wilderness on a beautiful evening with the most chilled couple I have ever met. Justin and Alice made it clear to me from the when we first met that stuffy stereo typical wedding photography was not their thing. The thought of standing, and fake smiling on demand made makes them cringe, great I said, I couldn’t agree more, we’ll do a Pre Wedding Shoot and I will show you it doesn’t need to be that way.
So late in the evening we went for a walk in some perfect evening light, in the wild, within 15 minutes of London!
Not far from where I live there is some glorious countryside. I have ridden through these forests for years on mountain bikes. Usually just focusing on the trail to think about the photographic potential. This Autumn everything looked so glorious it was time to give my backyard the attention it deserves.
For Sarah & Rob this place was home for them. They are both the type who seek out this environment, often with Marty the French Pug, who unfortunately could not join because of the cold.
It’s only weeks before Sarah & Rob are wed. They are clearly soulmates & made for each other….
