Our first job of 2018, and here it is. An engagement shoot with the brilliant Lara & Denzil on the Southbank in London. They told us they'd be camera shy but we didn't believe it for a minute and I think the pictures speak for themselves - they had a great time posing for the camera and went away with some beautiful photos to cherish forever. They must have loved it as they left us the most lovely review - scroll to the bottom to take a look.
Blessed with a beautifully clear winters day and bright blue skies, it was the perfect setting for capturing this great couple on a leisurely walk along the Thames, passing by some of London's most iconic scenes as a backdrop for the pictures.
Lara and Denzil are getting married back home in New Zealand so sadly we won't be there for the big day (we wish we could have been!) but we can tell their wedding is going to be amazing, so we wish them all the best.
Take a look at some of our favourite shots from the shoot below. Enjoy!
"Not used to being in front of the camera, we had some pre-shoot jitters, which were quickly eradicated the minute we met James and Danielle on the morning of our engagement shoot. They took what was a loose brief – natural, relaxed – and applied their creative abilities and “seeing eye” to produce a set of stunning images, which captured the essence of our relationship so well.
"James was very attentive and thorough, and made us feel so comfortable with some gentle direction here and there. He came up with some great suggestions for photo locations around Central London, which proved to be a beautiful backdrop for the images. Along with getting some much-needed practice ahead of the wedding, we now own a collection of images which we will treasure forever. We whole-heartedly recommend James and Danielle, who delivered way beyond our expectations."
