Anika & Matt | Engaged

From my first chat with Anika and Matt over a glass of wine last summer, I knew I would love to count them as my clients. They were relaxed and open, and both have a very natural warmth together. It was wonderful to see that chemistry very evident during their engagement shoot. Anika and Matt decided to bring their bikes along as they often go for rides through St James’ Park, which is where we began the shoot. I’m so pleased they did. It was a great “prop”, personal to them and gave some variety to the shots.

I will be celebrating my sixth wedding anniversary at their wedding in June. I can’t think of any better way to celebrate than at the wedding of two very lovely people.

    Oh Jodie.... amazing...!!!! I can't even find the right words. Every couple looks so happy and beautiful in front of your lens. Love the bikes and Royal Wedding setting too :)

  • Gorgeous Jodie! Love the spring light and colours in these... so pretty and clean!

  • Just got back from walking these exact streets and makes me so nostalgic to look at these - love the deckchairs and shadowy bikes. Great London theme running through the whole thing and I do like that balcony ;-) As always, a lovely pre-wedding shoot which will be a wonderful memory for the couple to keep xx

    Thanks Jodie for your kind words and these beautiful pictures. Before the shoot we thought we’d be camera-shy but you really made us feel at ease and we came away flushed with romance and happiness! You've captured "us" and we can't wait for the big day.
