London Bride – A Portrait Of by Caught The Light Photography

Aisle Style

Once upon a time a very camera shy, and self critical blogger was asked by an incredibly lovely and talented photographer [whom she’d admired for quite some time] to perhaps have some fun with a little portrait session. The coy blogger who, having been useless on a previous photoshoot and wasn’t too keen on or good at posing, realised she would have been crazy to say no, so she said yes. And thank goodness she did.

The blogger was awkward as she strolled around the Barbican in a short summer dress. But as the sun shone brightly the lady with the lense captured her every move and also more importantly, her personality. The blogger found herself laughing and smiling because amazingly she had started to enjoy herself. This was unexpected. As were the quite pretty results of this very sunny day.
Chloe at Caught The Light Photography you are one clever, patient and wonderful lady. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I would also like to thank everyone who left the most incredibly generous comments, especially those over on Caught the Light’s blog post. Tenielle, you especially made my day year. Kate Winslet?!

I urge anyone who is awkward or fearful of the camera to book Chlo√©.  She even took the big, looming and scary black lense hood off the camera for me. Now that’s a pro. And not that I’m superficial or anything, but I also got sent the prettiest DVD wrapped up with a ribbon with my photos as the cover and insert. It’s the little things…

    You look stunning in these photos, really natural. And I LOVE your dress. Can I be cheeky and ask where you got it from?!

  • London Bride

    Hi all, I was very lucky to be able to wear one of the only few 'summer' dresses I own as they don't get much of an outing in this country! It's a couple of years old from Topshop I'm afraid so not currently in the shops. Next time maybe I'll treat myself and buy something new for the occasion :)
