AJ & Antoinette Pre-Wedding Shoot in Richmond Park - London Wedding Photography

June 23, 2015  •  1 Comment

Richmond Park is amazing. It's like a little haven of green grass, fresh air and the sound of nature, but right in the heart of London. Plus, there are deer! Before I met up with the wonderful AJ and Antoinette I had a bit of a wander around the park, getting my shoes muddy and my brain inspired with my motivational playlist on. Getting totally lost in my music and my sunshine, whilst taking a few sample photos, I turned around and found myself face to face with a doe. Stunned, and not knowing what to do, my artistic instincts took over and I very slowly raised my camera, whilst taking careful steps backwards and fired off a couple of shots. The deer wasn't spooked at all and hung around for a few more seconds before mooching off, bored and looking for a fern to chew on. Not expecting to witness one of the park's famous residents up so close, I was a little stunned at this little interaction, but my alarm rang warning me to make my way to our meeting point so I wasn't alone with my thoughts for long...

I met my lovely couple for the evening after both of us had gotten lost in the wide open spaces. He told me they were near a tree, I said I was near a bush and it all went downhill fairly quickly from there. Luckily, due to the wonders of technology and Google Maps we managed to find each other. I knew roughly where I wanted to go and we made our way leisurely through the forests and thickets within the park, finding opportunities for photos everywhere and taking advantage of the beautiful light filtering through the trees, and the shadows and tones they created. I loved shooting somewhere that had shade and light, thick trees and sparse bushes - it really made for a varied and exciting shoot. Not to mention the fact that AJ and Antoinette needed absolutely no encouragement or posing tips from me, they both had a natural spark and we managed to emerge with a great mix of traditional and contemporary photographs, as well as ones that were just these two having a laugh together!
