Last week I met up with a couple in Penzance in Cornwall full of international stories, the groom to be is British and the bride to be a Singaporean, they had travelled to the UK from their home in Singapore to visit some family and friends and also see some sites in Europe, including trips to London & Paris. Their wedding is later next year in Bali, and although I don’t have the pleasure of travelling with them to tie the knot, they got in touch with me to capture some pictures of them both in and around the seaside cornish town of Penzance, where the groom now has some strong connections.
Sometimes it can be tricky to photograph people intimately that you have only just met, and whilst a large part of resolving this is down to me, it is of course a two way street and it must be said that when people are as genuinely happy together and easy going as this pair, the pictures just follow naturally.
So a little bit more than a pre shoot, a change of cloths to include the bridal dress and two locations near Penzance and after a quick introduction we set about shooting some pics around the area. We were blessed with some lovely weather and I had a good couple of hours with this pair who I hope will stay in touch. :)
