aly + james: sunshine in wapping court + this charming london, england engagement session

Weddings & Engagement
September 18, 2017

before i jumped on a plane from croatia to go visit + shoot with these two, the weather told me it was a 90% chance of rain. well, the sun came out. funny thing is, these two shine so bright that the sun wasn’t even necessary.

london is a posh + sophisticated town, something i’ve taken notice of ever since visiting as a child. its a city that embraces its past and builds upon it in such a refined way that you would think it was always meant to be.

it was such a treat to shoot these two gems. in our initial meetings we instantly bonded on performing + the theater + musical chit-chat. when we met in person little changed. we gabbed the whole afternoon.

these two are characters through + through + their love story is as infectious as they come.
