I couldn’t wait to get home and edit this set! I was invited to capture the celebration of a recent engagement by a young Kenyan couple living in Luton.
They chose a wonderful coffee shop in Luton called ‘Chai and Chapati’, complete with flower wall and neon lights! The choice was particularly relevant to the couple because drinking Chai Tea is a tradition in Kenya.
The fiancée had been busy preparing for the shoot by creating a Pinterest Board filled with beautiful pictures featuring couples enjoying coffee and each other’s company in quaint coffee shops. Bringing a ready made ‘mood board’ is super helpful for photographers so if you are looking to prepare for an upcoming shoot, I highly recommend putting one together – I can guarantee your photographer will thank you!
With the visual mood in mind and the stunning location sorted, we got to work. The couple didn’t need much direction, they were clearly effortlessly in love and the shots I was getting displayed that plainly. The staff at Chai and Chapati were incredibly accommodating; allowing us to take photos, moving tables and even giving suggestions!
I have included a handful of shots from the session below. If the images match what you have in mind, please do not hesitate to reach out and we can discuss how WE can organise your dream engagement photography session!
