Megan and Chris are getting married in March and they decided an engagement session was the perfect way to get used to the camera. The met at a university in Norway and they wanted to reflect this in their session. The Christmas tree in the middle of Trafalgar Square is a gift to the British people by the Norwegians each year so it provided the perfect symbolic location.
The shoot took place on a cold day in December just before sunset. We got some beautiful pictures by the fountain and some with Big Ben in the background…the light was just perfect. I love shooting in winter because the sun is a bit softer and lower in the sky and the fairy lights on the Christmas tree created a beautiful, sparkly backdrop. Megan liked the idea of getting some nighttime portraits while the Christmas lights were still up so we went to St James’s Park to capture the twinkly lights.
Megan and Chris were so comfortable in front of the camera and I can’t wait to photograph their wedding in March.
