An urban, photojournalist look portrait session in the gritty East London – what a great Christmas gift! ♥♥

I loved Sini’s idea for a Christmas present, when she contacted me back in November. Having recently moved together to London with her partner, she wanted me to find an area that have that certain London atmosphere to it, but devoid of the typical iconic tourist look. The idea was a photojournalist style couple’s portrait session. On a day in late January, the big day came along. And after Sini’s makeover in the morning, I met with her and Niko, and their big bag of outfits – gotta say that I love a portrait shoot with some thought to what to wear – and we headed down the funky and old fashion alley ways around Shoreditch in East London, and Tower bridge. Here is some of the photography from their East London shoot…

As the sun was setting we headed down to Hammersmith bridge, to get some shots with a bit of a quirky background…

A small part of us did wish for a bit of rain – well maybe not really – but just so that Laura and Will could have some use for the umbrellas they brought with them. That’s not to say that we didn’t use the umbrellas anyway…

Featured today on Whimsical wonderland wedding blog!

Yes, I am allowed to post two blog- blurbs on one and the same day.;)Actually, it’s kind of fitting that I do two posts at once after the long winter break, to kick start the year.

This weekend I was featured on the Whimsical wonderland weddings – very pleased since it just happens to be one of my favorite bridal blogs – so I had to mention it! I love the whole idea of a blog giving inspiration to couples who want to have something with personality and a bit “whimsical” for their day. (Yes more whimsical weddings over here please…) And I love the fact that I always find inspiring posts on this bridal blog.

So this weekend just gone, Whimsical wonderland Weddings featured a pre wedding portrait session, which I shot out in the forest of Barnes in Wandsworth SW London – on an absolutely gorgeous autumn’s day…

Head over to the Whimsical blog to see more from this gorgeous autumn day shoot!
