Diep and Dzung wedding banquet

Diep and Dzung started the celebrations for their wedding before the ceremony. Why have only one wedding day when you can have several? 

I met with the bride and groom at a Holliday Inn in East London where they were getting ready. Some of the groom's closest relatives were there to help and Alicia Vu was doing Hair and Make up. 

The party headed to Regent's Park, North London for a photoshoot and then to the amazing Yi-Ban for a most sumptuous banquet. 

Mr and Mrs Smith — A wedding in central London

Petra and Jeremy got married in the stylish York & Albany, a Gordon Ramsay pub in trendy Camden, North London.
Soon after our arrival at the location, I started photographing Petra getting ready while the second shooter covered the groom. 

The ceremony followed in a private but beautiful room with seats just for a few family members while other guests waited (and partied) in the pub downstairs!
After the ceremony, the bride and groom joined all the guests for an afternoon and evening of pure joy. 

 

Pat + Rui = Love

I just sent the photos to the bride. She tells me that she's emotional and she can't stop looking at them. And this is why I love my job! 
Pat and Rui got married in a *beautiful* sunny day in December and I flew to Lisbon to do the photos. If you've never been to Lisbon before, this is what the Winter there looks like.
The photos shown here were taken after the ceremony, on a stroll down Avenida da Liberdade, one of the main avenues in Lisbon. 
I have to thank the couple for being so amazing and for trusting me entirely. It was a very special day that I got to share with them. I am very honoured!

J + J — Wedding shoot

Everytime I think London has shown  me everything, I discover new people and new cultures.
Two weeks ago I partnered up with Alicia's Bridal to shoot this young and traditional asian wedding.
I know I keep saying this, but being among happy families just fills my heart with joy. I love family shoots and celebrations and this one was a lot of fun all through out the day.
J. and J. are such a cute couple, I wish them all the luck in the world!!

Lauren's Bat Mitzvah

I love my job so much! 
I was recently asked to cover a Bat Mitzvah in London. 
When I first met with Lauren's family, we had a chat about the meaning and importance of this celebration in a teenager's life. I was also asked about what kind of photography I really liked to do and I was given the chance to roam almost freely. I followed the brief of course, covered every important moment like the Hora and the Hamotzi. More importantly, I wanted to portray Lauren's happiness while having the party of her life.
The way I see it, Family Photography is most precious. The moments are made to last and the photos will be cherished for a long time.

The photos I'm showing here are the ones that make me most proud and take me back to this amazing party. 

Today, Lauren's father sent me an email that reminded me again how much I love my job.

It said: " (...) Everything looks fabulous.  I think you did a great job capturing the essence of the event.  Thank you so much for your hard work and putting up with the chaos."

Maternity photo shoot with two lovely moms-to-be.

A couple of weeks ago, I met A. and M.  for this maternity photoshoot. They are sisters-in-law and they are both (very) pregnant! After doing some shots at home, including some "photo-booth" pics, we went out to enjoy that amazing golden Sunday!

The dads joined us shortly after and the photoshoot continued in a very relaxed and informal pace.  They are such a young and beautiful family, I wish them all the best!! 

 

When the sun shines in London

On an unbelievably sunny day in London I knocked on the door of the M family.

I was greeted with a big smile by both Mum and the baby. We had a chat before the shoot and as I held the baby in my arms he smiled at me. I knew then that the shoot was going to be amazing! The Dad joined the shoot not that long after we started and later we went out to do some more photos outside. 

This gorgeous baby was mesmerised by the sound of the camera shutter. He loved the photo shoot and behaved so well!! 
It was an absolute delight to meet the M family and to capture their love and happiness!

If you’d like to book a photo shoot for you and your family, I’d love to hear from you.
Just send me a message and I will contact you shortly after.
