Today I am thrilled to share this colourful and fun North Greenwich engagement shoot.
Images were captured by Paola De Paola Photography.
Paola De Paola is a creative, fun, but totally unobtrusive London wedding and same-sex photographer.
She has always been a passionate artist. After her degree in Fine Art, she worked as a professional photographer for music magazines and record companies.
She consequently moved to work for Getty Images as a high-end digital retoucher, more precisely for Contour Celebrities by Getty images.
During this time Paola was able to build a very deep understanding of the photographic industry.
Fifteen years experience with Getty UK has proved invaluable. As a natural progression Paola De Paola Weddings was born.
Paola says of the couple and their shoot…
“I met Becca and Laurent for our shoot at North Greenwich station.”
“I must admit, this is a part of London I am not very familiar with.”
“In the late 1990s, a massive regeneration scheme was put in place to bring to life this neglected part of the city.”
“Nowadays everybody knows the O2, formerly the Millennium Dome, so it’s no longer a shabby area…”
“Becca and Laurent as a couple are relaxed and very synergistic.”
“In a few hours spent together we managed to achieve an enormous variety of images from painted murals, in the local ecology Park, Yachts in the marina, and urban landscape.
“From North Greenwich station we followed the Olympian way along the river Thames.”
“The area is buzzing with excitement, new innovative and very creative developments are taking place.”
It was a crisp day in February, sunny but fresh. Walking along the river was energising and we made the most of our time rain-free.”
“We stopped at the Yacht Club, located between the Millennium Dome and the Thames barrier.2”
“This place is over 100 years old, and full of character and boats of course.”
“Our session ended up with a drink and a chat.”
“What a wonderful day! Spent with a beautiful and relaxed couple, who were soon to be wed at Brixton East 1871 without a doubt one of my favourite urban wedding venue in South London.”
