Ruth & Linval’s Crystal Palace Engagement Shoot

I’m sat amongst lens cleaners and battery chargers getting ready for a wedding tomorrow, and it’s made me reminisce all the way back to January to Ruth & Linval’s Crystal Palace engagement shoot. It was possibly the coldest day of the year (surely it was, guys?) and despite the fear of my fingers freezing and snapping off with every snap of my camera, the awesome Ruth & Linval totally nailed their engagement shoot!

There is a small bit of history here. I have known Ruth since I was 11 or 12 as she went to school with my sister. Not only that, but her youngest sister Jenni is now a good friend of mine and a close drinking buddy. When Ruth and Linval got engaged, it was an absolutely pleasure to be asked to photograph their weddingfor them.

The pair first met when Linval began coaching the rugby team Ruth belonged to. However, it was at sister Jenni’s birthday bbq in 2009 over róse tequila and burger buns that the pair got together. Linval popped the question  on Christmas day morning at their home in 2014 and the rest is history.

I had an absolute blast with the two of them during their Crystal Palace engagement shoot and I personally think they brought good luck to my year with awesome couples and weddings. They happily cosiest up to each other, either from love or warmth and made the morning a blast.

So, I wanted to share them with you all, while I return to charging and cleaning for tomorrow’s big day….

See you tomorrow Ruth & Linval. When you say ‘I do’ and celebrate with friends and family!
