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.

Awesome pictures! I've known Jonas and Kerry for a while now and they are indeed wonderful human beings and a great couple, and this photos couldn't show it better.

Southampton Engagement Photographer – Mike and Sue
So a while back I was taking a Portrait Photography class and was in desperate need for some models to pose for me. It was a very "traditional portrait" studio class (nothing like what I ever wanted to do or do now, but nevertheless a good learning experience). Mike and Sue graciously agreed to help me out and sit for me while I took awkward, overly posed photos of them ("yes, it's very important you tilt your head exactly that way, otherwise I might fail" kind of stuff). As you can imagine, those photos never and will never surface on the web. It's to protect all three of us, I promise.But I was really happy when got engaged and asked me ...

Southampton Engagement Photographer :: Em and John
Something I never really considered all that much before I got married was, the family I'd be becoming a part of. But I have to say, as far as in laws go I couldn't have hand chosen better ones. Emily is Eliot's cousin and one of the sweetest people you'd ever meet. Her and John came to our wedding so many of my friends and family now know who she is. Whenever I would tell someone I was going to England to photograph her wedding, I would in some form or another get, "Oh sweet Emily?" So Em, just so you know, you were a hit.A few days before the wedding we decided to do a little mini session ::35mm B&WHolga cross proces ...

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 ...
