I spent the evening with the lovely Tim and Ah-Lai for their engagement shoot in Southwark Park earlier this year. The weather had looked a bit touch and go as I jumped on the train to take me to London, with huge black clouds rolling into the skies over Kings Cross, but as I emerged from the underground south of the river and walked towards our meeting point, the clouds cleared and I was greeted with some beautiful sunshine!
Tim and Ah-Lai got in touch with me way back in March this year, to find out about photography for their wedding at the beautiful Milling Barn in Hertfordshire. I was delighted when they booked me to capture their big day in 2017. We met for their engagement shoot in Southwark Park, near Ah-Lai’s flat. I love it when my couples suggest a location for their engagement shoot that means something to them, and for these two it was the very spot where Tim proposed, in the rose gardens 🙂
I enjoyed our wander about and Tim and Ah-Lai were very relaxed and chilled out in front of the camera. We did get a bit rained on towards the end of the shoot, but that was more than made up for by the stunning evening light and rainbow just as we left the park! I was even treated to a crisp gin and tonic afterwards!
I had a great time with this lovely couple and it was great to hear all about their story – how they met and how they got engaged – I can’t wait to document the next chapter for them next year!
