Fun engagement shoot in Leicester with Pia & Angus

A few weeks ago I went to Leicester to meet Pia & Angus and photograph their engagement shoot around The University of Leicester. This was my first visit to Leicester and also my first time to met Pia and Angus.

New places and challenges are always intriguing as I think it takes your creativity up to another level. Pia and Angus are a super cute couple who met while studying at the University of Leicester where they decided to stay and start their life together.

Photographs around the Leicester University

On our way to the University, we stopped at the Jone’s cafe bistro which is just a short walk from their house to take some photographs.  Jone’s cafe bistro is a place where Angus proposed and I was told it was a very romantic proposal. Even though it was mid-morning on Saturday and the cafe was very busy we managed to find a quiet corner for a few photographs with some champagne and strawberries.

Getting to know couples

Metting couples for a very first time and hearing about them, how they met and how engagement happened get me excited. Also, I was excited to see the University campus and look for attractive spots for the engagement photography.After a short stop at the cafe, we walked further down the road into Victoria Park to take some more photographs and then to our final destination, the University. It is a small campus, but it has really nice spots for taking photos. We were quite lucky with the sunny and warm weather on the day, maybe a bit too sunny for Angus’s liking.

Pia and Angus were so natural, relaxed and funny that it was an absolute joy to photograph them. I and Sergio are looking forward to photographing their wedding in Leicester in September!

Here are some of my favourite of their session. If you are looking for a Leicester wedding photographer click here.
