Alex & Audrey's same sex Brighton engagement shoot
It's 9pm and I'm on the train going back home after a meeting with Alex and Audrey in the South Bank. They found me through google, searching for "same sex wedding photographer in London". They are such a lovely couple that time past by very quickly and without noticing two hours went by. They had just returned from a holiday in Italy so we had much to talk about. Their excitement for food and people that they'd met was still very tangible. "Thank you for meeting us today, it was a great pleasure to talk to you. We had a chat and we'd really love if you could be our wedding photographer. Your style and personality really clicked with ours."
About the wedding, well yes, no longer civil partnership, but wedding now. In fact, since the end of March 2014, same sex couples can legally be wed. Alex and Audrey decided to have their ceremony and reception at Location 18. A very versatile venue that from Monday to Friday is a photographic film studio, and on weekends is a wedding venue. Ah, I love London, it's so creative and fun.
...A few months later we met up again in sunny Brighton. Oh, what a wonderful day out. Sun, food, drinks, seaside and many photographs. Why an engagement shoot in Brighton? Because it's such a vibrant, exciting. lively, creative, buzzing place and when the sun is out it is absolutely amazing. It really felt like being on holiday for the day. We ate al fresco. We walked on the beach. We had ice-cream and so much fun. It really felt like being with old friends. I truly enjoyed this engagement shoot, full of energy, love, big smiles and feelings. You can definitely detect the energy in the pictures, a strong, deep, and tender one. A little magic captured with a click. Really looking forward to the wedding day now...
