Steph & Andy | Engagement Shoot ~ South Bank

I first met Steph when I spoke at a seminar at a studio in the Lake District last year.  She is in the throes of setting up her own photography business and is getting married to Andy in Cheshire next month.  I was speaking at the seminar about setting up my business and began the talk with a slideshow of images from various beautiful weddings.  Afterwards, as I was chatting to all the photographers who’d attended, Steph approached and asked if I would be interested in photographing her own wedding this summer.  It is such a fantastic compliment when a photographer asks you to capture their wedding, and just shows that you can never predict where new clients will appear from!  Since meeting Steph, I’ve come to think of her as a good friend and love catching up on all things photographic.  Being a fan of a shoot I staged on the South Bank at the start of the year, Steph and Andy decided to use the location for their own engagement shoot.  As Steph is a photographer (check out her blog here), I thought it was quite fitting that we found a montage of images by Rankin to use as a backdrop.

I love the South Bank as it’s always an exciting place to shoot and no two shoots are ever the same.  I cannot wait to photograph Steph and Andy’s wedding next month, and I just know Steph is going to make an absolutely stunning bride.  From what they were telling me, it sounds like it’s going to be a wedding with lots of gorgeous details to capture, as well as the love and chemistry between them both.  Love my job!
