A Shoreditch pre-wedding photo shoot by bob Owen Photography.
Earlier in the year, (you remember, when it was warm and sunny), I met up with Gary and Kelly in Shoreditch for a pre-wedding shoot. I don’t always do these types of shoot as they don’t always sit comfortably with documentary photography, but for the right couple and in the right location, they can be a positive boost in getting better images on their wedding day.
Gary and Kelly had met as teenagers and had caught the bus many times from this stop while they were going out. It marked a point in their lives and was very important to them. It’s not a glamorous location, and Hackney’s not that pretty, but for a place that has such significance in a relationship, I say it’s the perfect place for a few photographs and a terrific reminder of an earlier part of their lives.
I always prefer to shoot in locations that are significant to people and I’m sure the residents of Hackney didn’t even notice me lying on the pavement!
Here are a few images from a great day out.
