Brianna + Mayo are from Atlanta and are lovers of the city!! It was Mayo's first time in London and their first trip to Europe together as a couple. I had a brief phone call with Brianna before they flew over and we went through what her dream shoot would look like. At the end of the call, I asked her if they had any special quirks and she couldn't think of any. It was at our session that I quickly discovered their ADORABLE quirk - they loved to gently tap each other's noses and say BOOP! Yeah I died a little inside.
These lovebirds met online and have been together for 2 years before Mayo popped the question with the most beautiful ring and a freakin helicopter ride. I had such a blast getting to know these two - they're so bubbly and fun to hang out with (come on, Brianna gave Mayo a piggy back and fell straight to the floor and they laughed so hard), AND they love Ed Sheeran.
I always love when my couples are committed to making their photos ace by agreeing to meet me at sunrise (which happened to be at 7:30am on a Monday morning). Brianna + Mayo were total champs and we created the coolest 'serious faces' photos in front of the London Eye, totally cool enough to be on a magazine cover.
Here's what Brianna + Mayo said about our session together!:
"Heather took our engagement photos a few weeks ago and it was an amazing experience. My fiancee and I found Heather on Instagram!
We were visiting London from Atlanta, Georgia USA and had a crazy idea to take engagement photos while we were on vacation! Heather made our vision come to life and so much more.
She was super easy to work with and listened to our ideas. She sent us the gallery in a timely manner and gave us over 200 edited photos!!!! We are having such a hard time choosing our favorites because soooo many are amazing!
Thank you again for your fabulous work and helping us capture our time in London!"
Thank you SO much for choosing me to take your engagement photos Brianna + Mayo! I'm so glad our paths crossed and I hope you had a magical time watching the Arsenal game after our shoot ;)
