I lost count of how many times Lucy and I had tried to arrange their engagement shoot but with this disastrous summer I was really keen to hang in there until we had a beautiful evening. We had a great location picked out; the canal near their home in Islington and I knew that given the right day it would look fabulous. We hadn't even met by the time I knocked on their door last night but when Lucy opened the door looking utterly gorgeous and floaty in a beautiful summer dress I sighed happily at the prospect of shooting this very lovely couple. This perfect evening made me even more jealous of my American wedding photographer friends who take this amazing light for granted every day! Hopefully they will be lucky again on their wedding day in September on the banks of Loch Lomond.
