This Engagement Shoot is very near to my heart as I’ve known gorgeous Monica (a fellow South African who I met in London) for around 6 years. When she messaged me to let me know that she had met the man of her dreams and that they were tying the knot in August in South Africa this year, I was over the moon happy for her! Currently, Kevin (originally from Texas) lives in China and Mon lives in Kiev so they decided to fly to London to spend some time together and to have a very special Engagement Shoot in the heart of London.
I absolutely loved doing this Engagement Shoot – capturing how happy and in love they are and how excited they are about their wedding day was amazing. They both looked fabulous – Kevin’s hat was super cool and Mon’s skinny jeans & heels ensemble with her gorgeous engagement ring, to die for! Nothing beats seeing a friend meet ‘the one’ and watching how her face lights up everytime he smiles at her or takes her hand…it’s so special. Mon & Kevin, thank you so much for sharing your love story with me. I wish you nothing but butterflies for your wedding in South Africa later this year.
Here are a few of my favourites from our afternoon together in London – we started in St. James Park, strolled past Big Ben and then jumped into a cab to finish off our shoot on the Tattershell on Embankment, with the London Eye in the background. Perfection!
