When Ariana & Alex asked me to be their Cambridge engagement photographer at Darwin college, I was over the moon! Firstly, Darwin was one of the few colleges to have eluded me for all those years. Since arriving in Cambridge some 17 years ago, I had never ever visited or shot photos in that college. And so the opportunity for me to get a peak was too strong to resist! Alex had proposed to Ariana a few months back, on the back lawn of the college. And he had hidden a bottle of champagne down the set of steps to the river to celebrate. That particular area of the college reminded me of a secret garden: secluded, mysterious & unique.
All in all the various settings at Darwin were amazing. I always feel very privileged to be a Cambridge engagement photographer in such beauty and timeless scenery. There were bridges leading to small islands, balconies, the little steps down the river, a spiral staircase and many punts! So many lovely locations for amazing engagement portraits! The couple loved their images, and my head is still full of souvenirs. I hope to be back there very soon!
