Wedding in La rioja

In 2012 my cousin married her childhood sweetheart in a lovely ceremony which, because of the rain, took place in a barn. The ceremony was charming, the lunch delicious and the dancing stupendous.

Unfortunately, we did not have much of a chance to take outdoor photographs for the book I was to put together and so, a few months later, they came to London  (with the wedding outfits in their suitcase) for us to do a session at one of the most beautiful locations of London: Hampstead Heath .

It was a lot of fun, but should this  thought ever cross your mind, there are some lessons to be learnt from our experience:

  1. Avoid those days when the temperature reaches 30 degree celsius. The best of the British summer is that this should not be difficult… unless you are us.
  2. Make sure that the backdrops you plan to use are not covered with scaffoldings… Although to be fair, I doubt there are many people who have a photo of the bride in front to a building site.
  3. It would be wise to drive a car to  location, This will allow you to either come prepared from home or to leave your change of outfit in… carrying your camera and other bits as well as a suitcase through the Heath , under scorching sun, is simply silly.

These were also in my Behance, hence the posting after five years!
