The city of London is bursting with fantastic sights, iconic landmarks, and oodles of character. It’s no wonder that visitors from around the world make a special effort to have pictures from London. Jialin and Qingrong are one of a growing number of couples from China and the US having their pre-wedding images in London. Nothing could dim this young couple’s enthusiasm, not even the rain which was present for most of the shoot. They were just so happy to be together that their excitement shines through in every image. London is an incredibly photogenic city, and a brilliant choice for a session or honeymoon. The mix of landmarks caters for all tastes. Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament have overlooked the River Thames for hundreds of years and give a sense of importance as a backdrop, while the Millennium Bridge lends images a modern vibe. Including iconic features like a red telephone box, or a London street sign, give a taste of London without detracting from the happy couple. This modern couple preferred the colour and energy of Piccadilly Circus, with the neon lights, red buses, and vibrancy that typifies the spirit of London. The more romantic shoots were taken walking along The Embankment and beside the Thames, with the London Eye and Big Ben in the background.
We made the most of the London weather with a bright Union Jack umbrella, and a more muted Burberry one. Both patterns are synonymous with Britain and were the perfect frame for capturing romantic moments.
I wish Jialin and Qingrong every happiness as they embark on the next chapter of their London love story. Congratulations!
