Paris Pre Wedding Photography

Destination Engagement Photography in Paris France

The second part of Jacky and Queenie's amazing three-country pre wedding shoot took place in Paris, France and we could not have asked for a nicer day. Paris is such an amazing place for destination pre wedding photography as there are so many incredible places to photograph in such a short space.

We started at the Eiffel Tower before strolling along the river to the Notre Dame before finishing at the Louvre. It was the perfect setting for this romantic pre wedding session and a great warm up for the Queenie and Jackie's wedding which I was lucky enough to photograph in Toronto Canada.

Here are a few images from this sunny destination engagement session in Paris.

London Pre Wedding Photography

Rachel and Edward's pre wedding photography trip to Europe was a pretty epic event and I was lucky enough to work with them on both their pre wedding photography in Paris as well as their engagement photo shoot in London.

The couple were married back home in Hong Kong in November and I was honoured to be asked to capture their wedding day in Hong Kong. It was amazing to see lots of my London and Paris pre wedding photographs decorating their wedding venue and there are lots of amazing wedding day images from Hong Kong coming soon.

Pre wedding photography is such an important part of many asian weddings and I love working with couples flying over from Asia. It's a great chance for the couple to get some amazing images in far away locations to display on their wedding day and to cherish forever. 

You can see some of the amazing Paris pre wedding images on my previous post and here are a few images from Rachel and Edwards London Engagement shoot.

Paris Pre Wedding Photography in France

I love working with so many international couples and pre wedding photography is always so much fun! Edward and Rachel flew over from Hong Kong for their pre wedding photography session and I was lucky enough to work with them in Paris and London to capture their engagement photographs as well as flying over to Hong Kong to tell their amazing wedding day story.

Paris is such an amazing place for a pre wedding engagement session and even one of the wettest days of the summer did not stop us having an amazing time. We started the day at the jardins du trocadéro which has amazing views over the iconic  Eiffel Tower before crossing the Seine river and moving down towards Notre-Dame de Paris and spending some time along the river and the lock bridges where thousands of couples put their initials on locks and lock them to the bridge. We ended the day at the Pompidou Centre and the Louvre which was the perfect location to end this Paris pre wedding session.

Here are a few images from this beautiful engagement session in Paris.

Destination Engagement Photography in Iceland

Pre Wedding Engagement Photography in Vik Iceland

The last day of Randy and Corene's pre wedding photography shoot in Iceland was filled with lots more driving, exploring and stunning scenery. We began the long drive back towards Reykjavik with stops by the dramatic waterfall at Skogafoss and the beautiful black sand beaches of Vik.

Skogafoss is one of the biggest waterfalls in Iceland and the flat terrain leading up to the waterfall makes it a perfect backdrop for pre wedding and engagement photographs. I have previously photographed weddings at Skogafoss in Iceland so knew the treat that we were in for and the waterfall did not disappoint. 

The black sand beach at Vik is consistently named as one of the top 10 beaches on earth and the volcanic black rock that creates the dark sand is one of the most unique and impressive locations for pre wedding photography. We had so much fun here and despite a rogue wave putting me knee deep in icy cold water we managed to spend a few hours exploring the area and capturing beautiful images of this amazing couple.

If you haven't seen the images from the first couple of days then you can check out some of the pre wedding photographs from Jokulsarlon Ice Lagoon here

Pre Wedding Engagement Photography in Jokulsarlon Iceland

After the amazing first day of pre wedding photography in Iceland with Randy and Corene there was still lots to explore so we drove over 600km on the second day to visit the amazing Ice Lagoon at Jokulsarlon and it was definitely worth the long journey.

I have photographed weddings in Iceland before and at Jokulsarlon but it never fails to blow me away. This is one of the most amazing natural wonders in Iceland and was formed when the Vatnajokull glacier started to retreat and giant icebergs began to fall off into the remaining lagoon.

The journey to the Jokulsarlon ice lagoon may have been a long one but it is definitely not dull and there are plenty of amazing locations that we stopped off at to take photographs. Iceland is one of those places where it is best to give yourself much longer that you think you need as there is always an amazing backdrop for lots of pre wedding photographs.

Here are some of the images from day 2 of this Iceland pre wedding photography session.
