It is such a gift to get to meet people, complete strangers, and to end up being a small part of their story, even for a very short time. Photographing this amazing couple at Pergola and Hill Gardens in Hampstead Heath, on a beautiful Summer evening, could not have been more perfect.
They are absolute goofs but also the kind of couple you turn your heads for, on the street. The whole package, I’d say.
Daniel came all the way from Texas (yes, hat and all) and this beautiful English girl stole his heart. That’s pretty much how the story goes. Although long distance relationships aren’t the easiest, their love grew stronger, he propose ( probably on a horse? ) and they’re getting married this Winter in London, where they’ll also start their life as a family.
It’s been such a treat to meet them for their engagement shoot and hang out a bit. We walked (and walked) ’till we found this hidden treasure in Hampstead Heath and just laughed our hearts out. You can pretty much see why if you scroll down a bit.
We can not wait for their wedding day, as their love story continues. The English girl marries the Texan guy, hat and boots on (we hope) and they live happily ever after. It’s going to be a pretty awesome party, y’all (in the worse Texan accent, I’m afraid).
