I met up with Sarah and Richard at London’s Southbank on a gorgeous May Day bank holiday for their engagement shoot. It felt like a very long time since I had first met them last year at the Manor House Hotel near Guildford in Surrey where they are having their wedding reception, after their service at St John’s Church in Old Malden. It was wonderful to catch up with them again and find out how all of the planning was going.
I find these engagement shoots are a great chance for us to really get to know each other and means that on the wedding day, you’re not having a stranger turn up to record those precious memories for you.
I really love the area around the Southbank for engagement shoots. There are so many wonderful locations there, so even on a really busy day like this one, you can still find quiet spots to take photographs.
I’m now looking forward to August for Sarah and Richard’s big day.
