We”¦ve had the pleasure of knowing Eva for a little while now and every time we see Eva, the first thing that strikes you is that she”¦s always so well put together. She”¦s tough, astute, elegant and beautiful; it”¦s easy to believe that this blushing bride holds high standards for herself and those around her.
A love for Thai kickboxing brought Thomas and Eva together. They met at the local centre and it only seemed appropriate to shoot a set of pre-wedding portraits in the place that started it all. Thomas was unwell during our shoot and was fairly quiet, but he definitely perked up when we arrived at the boxing centre ”V it was obvious that the sport and the centre were important to both Thomas and Eva.
Aside from kickboxing ”V and of course, Thomas ”V Eva”¦s other great love is shoes. As in many, many shoes. We”¦ve had couples who bring things to the shoot that illustrate their hobbies and interests. When we arrived to shoot at Eva”¦s house, she made a great suggestion of including as many pairs of high-heeled shoes as possible ”V creating a rather unique twist on the traditional pre-wedding portrait.
We also took advantage of their swimming pool to take a few photos; even though Eva was a little embarrassed, we caught the light at sunset and created some fantastic portraits of which we think Eva and Thomas should be proud.

We are always on the lookout for new and special locations to shoot pre-wedding portraits, and one of the places that we discovered when we were in Shanghai with Yvonne and Tom was, in actual fact, Tom”¦s house. Based on our previous experiences of Shanghai, we would never have believed that such a modern, beautiful house would be situated here.
Designed by Tom himself, the house definitely had the feel of an interior design showroom with a Tom Dixon mirror ball and a Carl Hansen & Son wishbone chair”K”K, and yet still exuded the wonderfully warm feeling of a home for a newly wedded couple. However, despite being enamored by the amazing house, for these portraits we focused less on the environment around us and more on the facial expressions of the happy couple in their lovely home.
As mentioned in our previous post, the unexpected rain ”„showered”¦ us with fantastic opportunities to create some very sweet photographs.
