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.

Happy Friday! One week from today and I will be on my way to Europe for 4 months. Today is also the last shoot I'm doing before leaving. It happens to be my favorite kind too. Can you guess? Definitely ending things on a high note.This is a proposal I shot a few weeks back for a friend of mine. Proposal turned mini e-sesh. It was a complete surprise and I was posing like I was just taking a photo of the sunset. Very fun to be a part of. Here is Andrew and Hannah ::

Stockholm Engagement Photography – Alexis and Magnus
Wow, I'm a bit embarrassed. I have probably sat down to start a blog, a dozen time since my last post. Even now as I write this, I'm wondering if it will actually make it to being published and killing my 3 months of silence in this space. I'll try to rationalize it in another post, this one is meant for much greater things.The last stop on our European road-trip was Sweden. I am in love with Sweden. Such a beautiful and amazing place, and I'm lucky enough to have a cousin who lives in Stockholm with her fiancé. Let me just say, exploring a new city while doing an engagement session, has to be one of the best ways to see it. (Remember thi ...

Southampton Engagement Photography – Kevin and Jess
This couple strikes a personal cord, because well, Kevin and Jess are good friends. I've known Kevin as long as I've known Eliot, and he even came all the way out to Oregon for our wedding. Jess is his beautiful fiance, and they met while working together on super yachts (yes the big ones, and no, not cruise ships). I was giddy when they called and asked me to do their engagement photos. It's exciting to have a little part in someones wedding experience, especially when they're good friends. They came from the east coast of Florida to spend the weekend, we'd love for them to move to the west coast. We spent an afternoon getting these:...
