When I met Richard & Maria a few months ago, their wedding in Portugal sounded too good to be true. Getting hired to photograph their wedding is certainly one of the highlights of my business year. When they suggested Richmond Park as the site of their engagement session, my heart did a happy dance.
Richard & Maria are a gorgeous couple who are clearly very much in love. Maria is Swedish and just as sparkly as can be. While shooting, she told me about when she was telling her friends about Richard and how he is her “cliff”, although she got the saying wrong and meant to say rock. I thought that was just adorable. Richard has a Portugese background and with his olive skin, it was very hard to get Maria to make him blush!
Richard & Maria ooze love for eachother and photographing them was a real joy. I simply cannot wait until the end of this month when we head to Portugal to photograph their amazing day!
Thank you to Hayley Barnard for the fantastic video pieces in Richard & Maria’s Love Movie. This is the first time I’ve incorporated video into a session – I hope you all love it!
