What is an Engagement Photographer in London?

A London engagement photographer is a professional photographer based in London, who specializes in couples photography. In this case, the couple happens to be engaged, but not yet married. Most of London based engagement photographers work with both local clients as well as travelers. So whether you are living in the London area or anywhere else and you’re traveling to London while engaged, it’s a great idea to take engagement pictures and remember this time of your lives. If you come from Asian or South Asian cultures, you’d think of hiring a pre wedding photographer in London for your “engagement” photos.

We had the best time celebrating our engagement and doing a photo session with The Now Time.


Proposal Photographer vs Engagement Photographer

I’d like to make a quick distinction. If you are a gentleman, looking to propose to your girlfriend in London and have a photographer capture your London engagement, then you might be looking for a London proposal photographer. On this page, we’ll refer to an engagement photographer as the artist who works with couples already engaged, as opposed to a proposal photographer, who captures the moment of engagement: the marriage proposal itself.

Is London a Great City for Engagement Photos?

With its iconic landmarks, the unique blend of old and new architecture, and dreamy, hazy weather, this city is the perfect place to capture the start of your love story.

You can have incredible photos all over the city, whether you’re at famous sites like Big Ben and Buckingham Palace or off-the-beaten-path spots like Shoreditch and Greenwich.

Your London engagement photographer will go with you for a casual walk in your favorite place in town, in the neighborhood you first met. Or, if you travel from overseas we’ll help you spot some outstanding urban backdrops which combine urban street setting with London greenery.

London Engagement Photography Inspiration

Hire a London Engagement Photographer

When hiring a photographer to take your engagement pictures in London, think about the following things:

  • The style of the engagement photos. Do you prefer dark and moody? Perhaps bright and airy? What about candid vs posed style? Choose the artist based on your personal preferences.
  • The experience. You’ll notice that there is a compromise to be made between experience and price. As more experienced photographers will come at a higher price point. If you want to be sure that you get memorable engagement photos in London, go for an experienced photographer.
  • The personality of the engagement photographer. This aspect is huge. If you don’t connect with your photographer, chances are that your engagement pictures turn out awkward. Choose a friendly photographer, or a fun photographer that are easy going and will make you feel relaxed and confident. This will help you look beautiful in your London engagement photos.
  • Read the photography reviews about your photographer. Read as many as possible to see what other real customers had to say about each photographer. This can help you make your choice of hiring an engagement photographer in London fast.
  • The budget. We’ll develop engagement photography packages below on this page. But remember that packages vary depending on the time spent on taking photos and whether the engagement shoot requires transportation or not.

Truly wonderful photographers to work with. Extremely talented. My fiancé and I are so happy with our engagement pictures.

What is the Best Time to take Engagement Photos in London?

The best time to take engagement pictures in London is at sunrise. From the photography point of view, the best times of the day in terms of flattering light are: early in the morning and late in the afternoon. But, the problem with busy touristy cities, such as London, is that there are crowds everywhere in the afternoon. This is why we suggest that you hire your engagement photographer London, to take your photos as early in the morning as possible.

What to Wear for my London Engagement Photos?

Choosing your outfits for your engagement photos is huge topic. The best engagement outfits make you look elegant, they need to adapt to your body type and ideally, they should fit your partners outfit as well as the eventual props. We have put together a full guide about what to wear to a photoshoot, to help you choose the best outfit for your engagement pictures.

What outfit do you recommend?

We suggest that you wear anything that you love, that makes you feel good, and that you feel comfortable in. As we’ll be walking quite a bit, comfortable shoes are a good idea between shots!

Can I wear more outfits?

You can choose as many outfits as you wish. You only need to consider that we’ll be moving between locations, so more outfits might require renting a car, finding parking spots and places where to change. It is, though, possible to hire an assistant who’ll watch for your belongings and provide help with keeping areas uncluttered from tourists.

What is the best time of day for our photo shoot?

As the city is one of the most visited places in the world where the streets can get sometimes very crowded, besides having the best light of the day, early mornings or late afternoons are the ideal times of day for an engagement photo shoot.

How do we book?

You can easily book online and safely pay by card. We’ll soon get in touch and plan in detail your shoot, so when we’ll meet you’ll only have to enjoy your time in London.

What if it rains?

London weather is famously unpredictable, so even if the forecast predicts good weather, it’s wise to be prepared for rain. Bringing an umbrella is recommended. For couples, rain can actually add a touch of intimacy and romance to the photoshoot, making them even more special.

This is our first photo shoot together

Our experienced engagement photographer will help you look natural and at ease in front of the camera. You’ll feel like just hanging out taking photos, as the whole shoot would be spontaneous and dynamic and not directed and unnatural.

How do you deliver THE PHOTOS?

All the edited pictures will be delivered through an online gallery that is password protected. The images do not have any watermarks, are high quality and ready to post on your social media profiles.
