Botanical, summer Engagement photos at Kew Gardens, London with adventurous travelling couple// Bao-Y + Klodian

October 8, 2020

Bao-Y and Klodian have been together for 11 years, since meeting when they were so-called “babies” at the club! Klodian got down on one knee after dinner one evening at home, as his original plan to propose in Austria couldn’t go ahead because of lockdown. Butttt it was the sweetest and most intimate moment that they could share together, and love was certainly not cancelled!

These two are such a fun-loving, free-spirited, adventurous couple who loves to travel. They’ve been to so many beautiful places (one of their favourite pictures together was of them riding a camel!) and wants to head to Brazil next. They’re even holding a destination wedding in Portugal as an ode to their love for travelling!

But back in the UK, when they’re not chilling with family or enjoying the home that they built, they love hanging out at Kew Gardens – which is why we picked this spot for their engagement photos. We went around the Mediterranean Garden and took some of my most favourite Kew Garden couple photos in the greenhouse next to the Temperate House. We then stopped by the Lake and Sackler Crossing before ending with some fun and relaxed photos in the afternoon light in the woods. They wanted natural, unposed and non-awkward couples photos together in a beautiful nature setting – and that’s exactly what we created together!

Thank you for such an amazing time together and entrusting me to capture your engagement, Bao-Y + Klodian!

Here’s some kind words from them:

“We found Heather as our engagement photographer after scrolling through endless photographers on google and we were immediately attracted to her photos because they are very natural, non-cheesy / non-awkward. We’re not models and haven’t really shot outdoors before but Heather is super fun to hang out with and made us feel at ease + helped us find the right movements that looked great & natural on photos. We actually shot way longer than the package indicated + got way more pictures and have received loads of compliments. I’d highly recommend Heather to anyone considering natural looking engagement photos!”
