London engagement shoot with Ellen and Kieren
London engagement shoot in the City with Ellen and Kieren. Engagement shoots in London are great fun because there’s literally so many locations to choose from! Ellen and Kieren were keen to have an engagement shoot so they could get used to being photographed ahead of their wedding, and to help them feel at ease. So we headed off into the City as it’s so quiet there on weekends, and wandered around St Dustan’s church and Leadenhall market. Leadenhall is usually crazy busy on weekdays but is super quiet save for tourists at weekends. It has a very Harry Potter vibe, so naturally, I love it!
I love engagement shoots because it’s a great opportunity to just chat and hang out with each other, as well as get used to being photographed. We had a great time talking about the wedding plans and Ellen later left me a fab review: “Sarah recommended having an engagement shoot, and I am so glad she did! After the shoot we both had a much better idea of what we liked and what looked good, and her tips as to how to be comfortable and get fun, happy photos were spot on.” From this, they already knew what to expect on their wedding day, which is exactly why I like to offer complimentary shoots to my couples.
I’ll be blogging Ellen and Kieren’s super fun Islington town hall and Oyster shed wedding soon!
