For London couples, the Barbican is a fantastic location for an engagement photoshoot session. Ade and Maja are a gorgeous same sex couple with a real love for London, so an inner city photoshoot was definitely perfect. We chose two locations that would in which to have the engagement photoshoot – St Dunsten in the East and the Barbican. Both locations are stunning! The lines, the textures and the light all lend to thousands of opportunities for some fun, relaxed engagement photos!
Ade and Maja were due to get married in June this year, 2020 – but of course the world paused and celebrations were put on hold and their wedding has been postponed But their love hasn’t! Now we are looking forward to next year when they will be having the most fantastic queer wedding with a theme of drag queens and kings and I am so excited to be a part of their wedding day shenanigans.
The city was snuggled under cloud cover on the day of our photoshoot, we met at St Dunsten in the East just after an Autumnal shower – my favourite. You know that kind of light where there’s just been a shower and the pavements are glittering under a warm soft light, that – perfect right?!
London engagement photoshoots are so special to me, London is where I met my partner and memories of exploring the city together are so precious to me. And so it was extra lovely for me to not only just take some snaps of these two, but watch as they explored new bits of the city and spent some quality time together.
We played with the stunning greenery and gorgeous windows around the old church then wandered through the streets over to the Barbican – and took some opportunities to snap some fun shots along the way. The Barbican is definitely one of my coveted places to photograph.
It was such a pleasure to photograph the love between these two and tell a story of their life in London. To book your own engagement photoshoot drop me a line here.
