Amy and Matt are a super nice couple and such a pleasure to be around. It's not just the two of them - they have a gorgeous little girl. She is cheeky and giggly, and looooves the camera! She was properly posing for me like a little model and seemed to be very interested in what I was doing.
We decided to have their pre-wedding aka family photoshoot locally to where we live, and went to pick your own farm. Amy and Matt are getting married in September and are planning a DIY vintage inspired wedding. Amy is very creative and crafting a lot of things for the wedding. I can't wait to see everything she comes up with!

I think the next couple of photos are my favourite of them...

I decided to blog their family photos in black and white. I don't really know why, maybe it's because most of my own family pictures are in black&white, so it kind of makes them timeless I think

How cute are they all together?! Guys, I'm looking forward to seeing the three of you on the wedding day, and I'm sure it will be a beautiful!

Hope everyone enjoyed the sunshine over the weekend and managed to recharge for the week ahead)) On Saturday I photographed a beautiful and very personal wedding in central London. I have so many kind words to say about it, but I'll save them for the full post in a couple of weeks ;-) All I can say for now - it was fantastic and very emotional! I wish I was a guest at a wedding like this.

I haven't blogged in a while. Please, forgive me, my lovely readers! Wedding season is in full swing. I promise to blog several sneak previews in the next few days though ;-)
For now I'd just to share some kind words about Exhibit Emotions Photography)) As a photographer I'm blessed with lovely couples I meet and photograph. Most of the time we have similar personalities and we get friendly, so when I work with them I always want to do my best, as if I help out my best friends. Ariel and Pete are one of those couples. Very warm and welcoming people, and it was such a pleasure to work with them)) Here is what Ariel wrote about me for the feature on Rock My Wedding blog:

"It took a few days to fall upon Dasha’s website Exhibit Emotions.  As soon as I read her story about how she met her husband, I knew she would understand our international wedding plight.  Plus her photos were beautiful and she had done an Art Deco-inspired shoot I could stare at for hours.  When I contacted her and presented my idea, she immediately responded that she would love to do an “I do, re-do” shoot.  I loved that.  It was exactly what we were thinking, without the actual “I do” renewal (or the big white dress).  She went out of her way to meet with me a few days before the shoot and spent, like, five hours in the blazing sun with us, waiting for the light to get ‘just right.’  Obviously, she nailed it!  She made us feel very comfortable, although we don’t have too much trouble hamming it up.  And to top it off, she saved the day.  When I realized I was too late to buy a bouquet and a bit upset, she spotted a gorgeous lavender bush and, after taking some great shots with it in the foreground, picked a bunch of it for me.  Perfect. 
When we got the photos from her (an unbelievable week later) she had managed to make it look like we had Greenwich all to ourselves.  There were hundreds of people roaming the streets and green spaces but in these photos it is just us two celebrating each other and our marriage.  In that way, I guess it was an “I do” renewal, or maybe just a reminder."

 Thank you so much, Ariel! It was a pleasure ;)

I'm very excited to share these images with you today! Ariel got in touch with me about 2 weeks ago about a photoshoot for hers and Pete's first wedding anniversary. I liked how enthusiastic she was about this idea, and it really made me look forward to meeting both of them. Ariel and Pete live in Greenwich, and it's one of their most favourite places in London, so the choice of location was obvious and brilliant. We went to the Thames at the lowest tide, Royal Naval College, and spent a couple of hours wandering around quiet streets. Greenwich has a lot to offer! I think it was one of the hottest summer days, but the sun was shining and we got to take some photos in that magical golden hour. Ariel is a geographer and blogger, make sure you check out her blog ArielGraphy. I love her style of writing - so effortless))

Ariel and Pete love traveling, and they brought a vintage suitcase with them. 

Dance like no one is watching...

Some lavender love

Yellow shoes?! Yes, please! Girl after my own heart :)

Ariel and Pete, congratulations on your first wedding anniversary once again!
