Couple Shoot

A few weeks ago Warren and I had an engagement shoot with Anneli Marinovich. She is super talented and has been featured in many international wedding magazines - (In fact, since booking an engagement shoot with her - every UK Wedding Magazine that I browse through I keep stumbling on her awesome photos and poking Warren in the ribs with "LOOK! LOOK! ANNELI'S PICTURES! LOOK!"  - Warren loves it when I do this).

We had our engagement shoot on Southbank in London - on the bridge overlooking Big Ben and the London Eye. Anneli was SO easy and fun to be around (very nb for a photographer) and when we first met her at Waterloo Station nearby she said: "Before we do anything - let's get a drink"

Me to Warren: I like her already.

The whole afternoon was loads of fun and it was sadly over before we knew it! (Even Warren was having such a good time - that he couldn't believe we had already been snapping pics for three hours - we just wanted it to go on and on!) Here are a few of Anneli's awesome snaps from the day  - It's a bit of Warren/Che overload for indieBerries - but eh.... one for the grandkids.

(And yes, I even changed my blog layout to make space for bigger pictures. 
How very nerdish of me. lols)

In Korea where I was teaching for three and a half years there is a famous bridge near Seoul Tower where lovers attach locks to symbolise their commitment to each other. These "Locks of Love" I think were started in Europe - probably Paris. Anyway, I love the idea of it - and Warren and I decided to hook up a little lock to  Hungerford Bridge. There are only about three or four other locks on the bridge - so ours is one of the first few. We even had ours engraved - 'cause we're hectic like that.

Next we popped over to the park on the riverside to have a little picnic.

We popped some Moet.
We drank some Moet.
We had some good nosh.
We smooched.

We wrote letters to each other to be opened at the picnic.

Warren is doing a hectic ab-workout in this picture.
- You can't even tell.
Thank you so much for the gorgeous pics Anneli! It was such a fun day with you and I can definitely recommend you as an AMAZING wedding photographer! Anneli has written a very good blog post on engagement shoots in general which you can read here
(Warren: aaah... Now i see... engagement shoots are for you to see how NOT to smile at your wedding. got it.) Anneli also has more pictures from our engagement shoot up on her blog here

Soooo..... what do you think of our engagement pics?!

Michelle Ramsay said...

Sometimes I look at couples photography and cringe, because it looks fake and unnatural. Che, these photos scream happiness and true love. Your attention was on your man, not the camera. I love these pics and can tell that you are going to be exceptionally happy one day. ;) Thanks for sharing. (You made me remind my boy why I love him so much by looking at these pictures).
