I love Camden. I love colour. I love Love That Smile Photography. So really, this engagement shoot is like a perfect storm of all three! I may have pounced on this one!!
Rhia and Dean met on a Sunday night out in a local bar whilst they were out with their sets of friends. Rhia says,
I’d been drinking absinthe with my friend, while Dean was in the process of drinking a whole bottle of rosé in one go, which got my attention!! Our group of friends got talking, and Dean took my number. He tried acting cool, saying he didn’t give his number out, only to call me two minutes after he left to make sure I got home all right, even though I was still in the bar and could see him through the window!
Rhia took Dean to Mexico for his 30th birthday, where, she tells me, “he proposed to me aged 29 years and 364 days.” After dinner, Dean got down on one knee outside the restaurant to ask the question, and Rhia said yes before having a clear view of the ring…
Luckily I loved it – if by ‘loved it’ you mean changed it for a different one. Still, it’s the thought that counts!
We chose to do an engagement shoot so we could have some lovely photos of us to display in our house. Even though we’d been together for seven years, we didn’t have many photos of the two of us together.
We wanted an urban setting for the shoot that had vibrant backdrops to make the images really stand out. Camden was a good choice because of the diversity of all of the things around, such as the canal, markets and historical buildings. We loved the iconic photograph facing the Camden Lock bridge!
