London Engagement Photography :: Kerry & Jonas

Engagement

I met Kerry the first night I arrived in China, after a long Chinese dinner and a ride on the back of a motorbike, through the busy streets of Fuyang, with a South African guy I had met just a few hours previously. (In case you think that’s not the best decision I’ve ever made, I can promise you that it’s not the worst.)

She’s been an easy person to keep up with, because every once in a while, we find ourselves in the same corner of the world again. This time, it was in London, and she had just gotten engaged to Jonas. She’s American, he’s German and they have such an amazing outlook on life, and this world. Eliot and I had an awesome day with them, touring around London, eating at the best Chinese restaurant I’ve been to outside of China, chatting about all their travels, their plans for the future, and commiserating a bit on the bureaucratic hassles that go along with marrying someone from another country.

It felt so good being able to do this shoot. Once again, I feel so lucky that I have been able to travel and meet these kinds of people. People who are doing incredible things, and meeting other awesome people, and then they introduce you to them. And it seems to just keep getting better.

Cheers to you guys. XX

Dear Ashley,I loved this article and I was so overwhelmed by the love that shines through these photos and your description of their flat... I just couldn`t help myself and I have booked the first flight available to London. Could you intercede in my behalf and see if I can book one night in June at their flat and perhaps if I take them out to dinner they can cook me breakfast?. I will also be bringing with me a little Colombian rebel who speaks some Chinese. Please confirm. Great photos. Great comments on wonderful people.

Maui Engagement Photography – Aaron and Maria
Christmas 2013 we were lucky enough to spend it in Maui with my family again this year. It turned into being the year of Hawaiian engagements, as we celebrated one of my cousins getting engaged this past summer, and two more got engaged before we left the islands. There was a lot of celebrating. My cousin Aaron is one of the funniest guys you've ever met, and his fiance Maria is the sweetest of all ::

Southampton Engagement Photographer :: Chris & Dyana
I ♥ this couple. I had such an amazing afternoon with them, photographing their e-sesh. I pitched the idea of doing their engagement session in an antique/thrift shop a few weeks before. To my delight, Dyana and Chris loved the idea, and scouted out the cutest little shop in all the land.These two sweeties are so in love, and spending an afternoon getting to know them, and hear their stories, is why I love engagement sessions. Whenever I meet couples, it's always kinda/sorta like an interview (from both sides). They have tons of questions for me, and I try to find out as much as I can about them in the space of...about an hour. So the con ...

Autumn New Forest Engagement Photography
You wouldn't know it by looking at these photos, but this shoot nearly got rained out. The day before is when we'd originally scheduled it, and it poured rain from dawn to dusk. We quickly scheduled it for the following day and managed to capture that sweet autumnal glow.I love setting up for engagement shoots. Scouting unique locations is my specialty, and in this area there is no shortage of magnificent backdrops. A broken wall, or a glimmering tree line can completely transform a photograph from your usual portrait into vibrant scene.Meg and Matt were good sports about trekking through forest and fields as well as hopping over a fe ...
