Well, they tell us that now is the traditional time after Christmas and heading through New Year that those of us in the wedding world call “Engagement Season.” So here’s a recent Alexandra Palace engagement shoot landing on the blog.

Apparently now is the time the vast majority of couples pop the big question to each other and then providing the answer is positive (!!!) planning for the big day begins in earnest.

M and J live in Buckinghamshire and it’s very near their homes in Bletchley they are getting married, with a wedding reception to follow in Milton Keynes. J is English and M is Brazilian and bizarrely as I (David) found on on the shoot, J and I used to work in the same company many moons ago. Small world 🙂

And that’s one of the great things about engagement shoots: everyone gets to know each other a bit better. It certainly helps some couples relax a little ahead of the big day to find out how friendly and relaxed we are.

Having said that, it’s only about thirty percent of couples that take up our offer of a complimentary engagement shoot that comes as standard in our Elegance and Platinum Plus packages, both found here: Pricing – Creative London Wedding Photographers Big Day Weddings (

If you’ve seen any of our other engagement shoot blog posts you will know that it is David that pretty much does all of these on his own, unless of course it’s a longer and more involved shoot say in central London with a couple that may have flown in just for the experience. Yes people really do that! A quick look on Google will tell you how happy people are with us 🙂

What’s great about Alexandra Palace engagements shoots, apart from the fact we used to live right next to it, and our children went to school nearby in Muswell Hill, is the variety the building and surrounding park offer.

It has water, woodland, views, gardens, interesting architecture, and plenty of characters wandering around too. The thing is knowing what works visually and what doesn’t, getting people relaxed and understanding light and camera technique to get the best out of an engagement shoot. And on top of that being able to do it with energy, a smile, gentle direction, and guaranteed results every time.

Things is when it’s your career, when you love what you do, when you always want to create something fresh and engaging: it’s a pleasure.

Barnet Wedding Photographer? London Wedding Photographer? UK Wedding Photographers? Thinking about this we answered first with a “yes”, and then a few seconds later an equally impassioned “no”! We have worked everywhere this wedding season from local north London and Hertfordshire wedding venues, to central London, home counties, far away counties, and France….Oui!

In todays global online village, its only right that someone searching for recommended or just great wedding photography should be able to ask the question: “Are you free for my wedding day?” Wherever a person is in the world. Long gone now are the days of only being able to walk down the local high street to the portrait studio shop front, popping in and speaking to one of the very few real choices you may have had in your area for your big day. Well that’s what we vaguely remember when we were kids…Though wedding photography is not like shopping for a best price on Amazon, it’s of course about quality that has real and enduring value over time. There’s nothing wrong with shopping for that quality, and looking as far a field as necessary. We’ve spent so much travelling through the global village of wedding photography recently that it has been hard to update this blog and post on socials as much as we would like. It is secondary to working on images and meeting new couples 🙂
