When Joey and Eric travelled all the way from Hong Kong to London to have their engagement photos taken they weren't banking on days and days of relentless rain to give their pictures that authentic British look. Both Joey and I spent the days leading up to their shoot obsessively refreshing the weather forecast, hoping for a break in the constant drizzle and as if by divine intervention, we got it; at 2pm as we were due to meet in a car park in Hampstead, the rain stopped. Miraculously, it stayed stopped until ten minutes before the end of our shoot two days later.
Joey and Eric lived in London many years ago and they wanted to revisit some of their favourite places - Tower Bridge, Southbank, Westminster and Trafalgar Square, as well as to discover some new spots that they didn't know. To that end we spent our first day together in Hampstead, first at the beautiful and otherworldly Hill Gardens and Pergola, a well hidden gem just a little west of Hampstead Heath. The Heath is where we headed afterwards, to take some photos with London's spectacular backdrop behind us.
The next day posed unforeseen challenges as every few minutes we were stopped by someone who wanted their photograph taken with Joey and Eric in their amazing Chinese wedding outfits! But despite the admiring hoards we managed to find a few quiet spots to take some pictures and we ended the day in the bustling Trafalgar Square.
