Lauren first contacted me during Summer last year to see if I was available for a London Couple Shoot in late November 2012. They were planning to spend the weekend in London (they live in Scotland) and wanted some photos to capture their love for this gorgeous town and each other! So on a chilly but sunny day in November we met on Westminster Bridge and explored some of their favourite spots in London. I knew from our ‘walk & chat’ that they had been together for quite some time (8 years if I remember correctly) and it showed…they are so adorable together – lots of hugs & kisses throughout the afternoon. From Westminster Bridge we strolled along South Bank and through the German Christmas market, all the way to the Hard Rock Cafe – one of their favourite haunts when visiting London. We then enjoyed the festive Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park and then decided to end off the shoot in a quieter spot, away from the bustling Hyde Park Christmas crowd…and that’s when it happened!
I asked Lauren to stand amongst the branches of a beautiful tree and close her eyes – enjoying the sunlight on her face. Whilst I was snapping away, I felt a tap on my shoulder. I looked over at Kevin who in a split second had knelt down on one knee in front of Lauren – asking her to be his wife!!! Needless to say Lauren’s expression when she opened her eyes, was priceless and thankfully I was there to capture every moment. This was even more special since I had no idea he was planning to propose and yes I had goosebumps while capturing this epic moment shared between them.
A big congratulations to Lauren & Kevin again and thank you for letting me be a part of your romantic proposal story.
If you’re stopping by, leave some love for these two lovebirds! :-)
[Lauren’s make-up was done by the very fabulous Katy.]
This photo make me laugh – Kevin loves squirrels and this one insisted on being in the shot!
This was the moment before Kevin proposed to Lauren…her eyes are closed and she is blissfully unaware of what is about to happen!
And here it is! Kevin asks Lauren to be his wife and I (shakily) take some photos!
She said yes!
And they will live happily ever after….the beginning! :-)
