A Captivating Connection

If you’re in the mood for some swoons and sighs this fine day, then you definitely came to the right place. Theo and Ishie’s engagement shoot by Jon Lau of Lauhaus.co is brimming with all the best stuff: a couple that’s just perfectly natural in front of the camera, the most stunning storybook scenery as backdrop, and an easy, comfortable vibe to every single thing! Warm, enchanting, quietly poetic and absolutely fuss-free — it’s difficult to pick just one good thing to say about today’s engagement shoot, so why not have a look for yourselves and let the magic tug on your heartstrings?

Whispered Sonnet

I’m simply elated to feature today a wedding photographed by an artist I truly admire, Nirav Patel, who creates nothing short of visual poetry. Jay and Beverly’s special day in a quaint house in Hampstead has everything I look for in a wedding — beautiful, thoughtful, unpretentious, and filled with details made with love. It was truly a celebration of the love between two individuals. The genuine intimacy between the couple and their nearest and dearest can be felt through the photos, and the typical British weather only but added to the coziness. This is not your bouncing around, screaming at the top of my lungs kind of happiness, but rather a deep, solid, and quiet joyfulness that springs from within. I would suggest you grab a cup of hot tea and take some time to soak in all the photos.
