Earlier this month, I met the lovely Emily and Marisol in Shoreditch for a photo shoot! They’re in a long distance relationship, between America and England. Whilst they were together for the Summer on a trip to London, I offered to capture some memories for them in one of my favourite places.
I had never done a couple’s shoot before, so this was totally new territory for me. I was so nervous before meeting them, because I often lack confidence in myself, but I’m so happy with how these images turned out. For a first shoot, I think it went pretty well!
It was so lovely to spend a day with these guys, after having followed their story on Twitter for a long time. We shot whilst I took them on a tour around my favourite spots in Shoreditch, from vibrant vintage markets to locations with the best street art. I really like the vibrancy of these images, because it reflects their relationship so well – they’re known for their bright and beautiful relationship online!
I’ve gotten a lot of feedback on these images from other photographers and I can’t wait to improve with each shoot in the future. In future shoots, I’d like to plan locations more to fit with outfits, and pay more attention to lighting and shadows.
