Thoughts from the photographer
So this is part one of a two day pre-wedding photoshoot – day one was in London and day two was in Paris. The couple is from Hong Kong – Abe and Kenny. I remember Abe contacted me about three months before the shoot to arrange everything. Photographing them was nice and easy as they were very photogenic – you know, sometimes men are stiff, but this was not the case with Kenny.
We started by Westminster Abbey and Big Ben, then I took them to Primrose Hill to see the panorama of London. It was followed by a short night shoot in the rain – this is a nice example where the rain actually helps, it makes beautiful reflections and adds the magic to the photos – people are often concerned about the rain, but I love it.
