This weekend, we had a great time with Alex, Darren and the fabulous Lydia on their pre wedding shoot. The ceremony will be at the luxurious 60 Hope Street in a few weeks and we used the area around there for the shoot.
We all had a laugh and Lydia was the star of the show and also a great photographer's assistant! We got some beautiful pictures of this lovely family. They are shot mostly with the ambient light and a few with the ambient mixed with flash. We hope you enjoy this selection.......
