I arrived at their home to get some shots of Anna and their two daughters getting ready and was so inspired by being in the midst of little signs of family life, the felt tip calendar with days crossed off up until the wedding. All those everyday things you find in a house with children. I wanted to tell that part of the day from their daughters' perspectives and I waited patiently to get the black and white shot with the youngest peeking round the door. It turned out to be well worth it as Tom and Anna told me after seeing their preview images:
"We both said the shot of Evie looking around the door is worth the price of all your work...we will treasure that for the rest of our lives."
I may have done a little dance at my computer when I read those words.
When Tom and Anna first told me they were getting married at The Deck, part of The National Theatre in London I had to catch my breath a bit. London is such a beautiful city and The Deck had one of the best views of the skyline I've seen. It was gorgeous in the daytime but truly came into its own when night fell… all the twinkling lights on the Thames.
That's all the words I'll give you for now… let's have a look at the photos, hey?
