ENGAGED…..Janinne & Ola Kingston Engagement Session

By julietlemon July 9 2012 - 11.43 PM

Two weeks ago we were in London with a super lovely couple photographing them on their engagement.  We were halfway along the Hungerford Bridge where we had temporarily stopped to photograph them with the beautiful vista of London in the background when a lady approached us.

> “Excuse me, are you a professional photographer?”

– {clutching a canon D5 with 70-200 f.2.8 mkII attached} “Yes”

> “I’m getting married in a few weeks in Richmond, do you photograph weddings?”

– “Yes I do photograph weddings and I know Richmond very well”

> “Please can you give me your business card so I can see your website and I may be in touch…………………….”

Clearly you can work out the rest considering you’re looking at the photographs of the engagement shoot we did  on Sunday with the lovely lady, Janinne and her fiancé Ola.  How amazing to think that this is a result of meeting on a bridge!

So, introducing the soon-to-be-married Jannine & Ola who are both absolutely gorgeous.  We caught up in the riverside town of Kingston in Surrey – thankfully we managed to time our rendez-vous once the morning deluge had occurred and we were graced with sunshine and blue skies.

Kingston was absolutely buzzing that day; people hollering from the banks cheering on the rowers competing in the regatta, there were carnival antics along the cobbled streets lined with market stalls, a marching jazz band, the cast of a theatre production all in colourful African clothes, capoeira displays, syncronized prancing cyclists, face painting, ice creams, live music, rodent like actors and one scary skeleton so it was an incredible setting for their engagement shoot.

It was an absolute please photographing the happy couple who were so relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera.  Can’t wait to photograph their wedding, with the Nigerian and South American twists it really is going to be incredible!

Enjoy x
