Autumn Romantic Sunrise Engagement photos at Trafalgar Square and St James Park, London// Chien + Peng

January 14, 2020

Back in May last year, Chien + Peng became my FIRST EVER wedding clients when they got married in Chelsea (you can see their blog post here). We decided to take their engagement photos after the wedding as the weather would be much better and we could include the seasonal autumnal colours. Who knew that by then, my art would’ve grown so much and so had my experience with shooting weddings.

When we saw each other again it felt like being reunited with my close friends, no joke. Chien + Peng will always have a special place in my heart for believing in me from the start and showing how much they care about + love my business. Our morning together was beautiful. I’m so glad they agreed on shooting our session together at 7:30am on a Saturday morning. The sunrise was perfect and crisp, and there were no tourists around! Trafalgar Square looked beautiful in the morning light and we even managed to venture around towards Charing Cross and St James Park to catch more of London’s seasonal backdrops (I mean…peep that red ivy wall).

What you don’t see from this gallery is how the heavens opened straight after we wrapped up and the massive downpour that came with it. The clear blue skies literally went to gloom for the rest of the day – WHAT THE HECK. We decided to head to Pret together and caught up on life over breakfast. Chien + Peng had their big ‘official’ wedding in Malaysia in December and I’m so excited for them as they embark on married life!

Chien + Peng, I’m SO grateful for you guys and your love for my work. I can’t wait to catch up again sooooon.

A few words from Chien + Peng:

“We had an amazing experience with Heather. From beginning through to the end, she was approachable, supportive and attentive. She made the day of the photoshoot itself very relaxing, we felt in safe hands and it was like having a close friend there with you. Her experience and professionalism shines through, allowing you to relax and have the best day of your lives. We got our first round of photos through today and couldn’t be more happier with the results, she is talented and genuinely loves what she does! If you’re thinking about booking her for your big day, do it – you won’t be disappointed!”
