Roberta first contacted me back in August to arrange an Engagement Shoot for her and her fiancee Giuseppe. They are tying the knot in December in Italy and the wedding sounds like it is going to be amazing! With Roberta living in Italy and Giu living in London, the idea was to have a London Engagement Shoot to mark all the lovely times they’ve spent together in Notting Hill and strolled around Portobello Market during Roberta’s visits to London. I thought it was really romantic to have their couple shoot in London, and more so since Giu is moving back to Italy this month and it was Roberta’s last visit to London (for a while). We ended off the shoot in true Italian style with an Espresso at a nearby cafe – perfect!
Roberta & Giuseppe – Vi auguro tutto l’amore, la felicità e risate nel mondo per la vostra vita insieme come Mr & Mrs Contartese! (I wish you all the love, happiness and laughter in the world for your lives together as Mr & Mrs Contartese!)
Here are a few of my favourite shots from our afternoon together exploring Portobello Market and Notting Hill. I’m sure you will agree that Roberta is a real Italian beauty and their love for each other is as clear as day! Enjoy!
