Top 3 Tips for choosing your London Vacation Photographer

Feb 13, 2023 | Family Photography

As a London vacation photographer, I recently had the pleasure of photographing this wonderful family during their visit to London. Lauren and Brad actually spent their honeymoon here over nine years ago, and this was the first time they visited London with their beautiful little daughters.

Kensington Gardens makes for a perfect family photoshoot location all year round, and this pleasant November morning certainly didn’t disappoint either. We moved between the main Broad Walk, up towards the Round Pond and Kensington Palace itself, before making our final stop at a typical Kensington street with its distinctive red brick houses.

As their London vacation photographer, I took a mix of lifestyle family photos as well as slightly more posed images so the family has a lovely collection to document their time in London.

Are you planning a vacation to London and looking to capture the memories with professional photography? Read on for 3 tips to find the perfect fit.

# 1 Pick a London vacation photographer whose style you love

Get a sense of your photographer’s style by looking through their portfolio and social media. Only you know what what type and style of photos you will love. Are you after more candid lifestyle shots, or are you looking for traditional posed images? Have a look at this blog post to read about two main styles of family photography.

# 2 Consider the location

London is a city with endless photo opportunities. Ensure your photographer is familiar with your chosen location. For my lifestyle images, I love the calm nature of London’s parks – in addition to Kensington Gardens, I often shoot in Battersea Park, Hampstead Heath or Holland Park and their charming surrounding streets. I will guide you to the best spots and make the most of our time together.

# 3 Choose a London vacation photographer whose personality clicks with your family

The photos are all about you, but it’s important to click with the person behind the lens as well. How does your photographer make you feel? I will do my best to get to know you before and during our shoot, ensuring you have a smooth and memorable experience throughout. As a mother to two young children and being a London family photographer, I am experienced in photographing all ages and will make it fun for your children.
