London Engagement Photography – Relaxed London engagement shoot at Holland Park

May 20, 2016

Laidback engagement shoot at Holland Park

Many of the couples who choose to book a shoot before their wedding do so because they are a little nervous about having their photos taken. The idea being that by the time you have had the engagement shoot, you will feel much less daunted about having photos taken all day at your wedding. This is something that definitely works and certainly helps. My approach to an engagement shoot is relaxed, friendly and easy-going. It’s a chance to wander, chat, find out about the two of you and take some photos as we go. There is no pressure and I can guarantee that by the end of the session you will be much more relaxed about having your photo taken.

Millie & Dan weren’t the most nervous couple I have photographed, but they both said they were a little unsure about having photos taken. They wanted a London engagement shoot at Holland Park and were looking for a ‘pretty’ urban feel to the photos, rather than gritty urban. Their wedding is being held in Surrey, with their ceremony at a pretty countryside church and reception at Fetcham Park, so they felt that having photos that capture some part of London for their engagement shoot would be a nice contrast to the green, countryside feels their wedding photos will have.

We met early on a Sunday morning and were lucky to have a gorgeous sunny day. I was definitely a little in love with Millie’s choice of outfit (I really want those sparkly, sequinned pumps!). I always advise my couples to wear something that is comfortable, but also makes you feel great and captures your personality. Our first stop was Holland Park Mews, a pretty street with a grand archway at the entrance, this made a great spot for a few photos. As it was so quiet (the joys of a Sunday morning shoot) we then wandered around the streets and into Holland Park, chatting and capturing photos as we went. A little greenery, some beautiful buildings, a little brickwork, a red post box and some London bikes made for some great photos.

It was a pleasure to spend the time with Millie & Dan and I can’t wait for their wedding in July.
