St Katherine Docks

If you want a picture on a waterfront, then this is the perfect location for you. St Katherine Docks feels much like a sanctuary from the crowds and main attractions, while still being in Central London. It is central London’s only marina, and makes for a very unique couples photoshoot. St Katherine Docks are surrounded by old buildings and restaurants making it both a historic and vibrant London location for your couples photography.


Covent Garden

Lovers of London’s West End know all about Covent Garden. The former fruit, veg, and flower market now is home to a variety of unique stalls, shops and restaurants, but is nevertheless very energetic and beautiful. The piazza makes a great place for a photoshoot, but bear in mind that it will likely be very crowded.


Somerset House

Somerset House is a beautiful Neoclassical building that functions as one of London’s art centres. It has a great location on the south side of the Strand overlooking the River Thames. The Georgian quadrangle is a great London location for couple’s photography.


Richmond Park

If you prefer less of a city feel and want a location that is more inspired by nature, choose Richmond Park for your photoshoot. It’s London’s largest Royal Park and it’s full of foliage, lakes and deer. What could be more charming?

St Dunstan in-the-East

St Dunstan-in-the-East is one of London’s best-kept secrets. It’s a parish church halfway between London Bridge and the Tower of London in the City of London. The twist is that the church was largely destroyed in the Second World War and is now overrun with greenery, making the ruins look like something out of a fairy-tale – a perfect couples photo session spot! 


Kew Gardens 

Kew Gardens is a botanical garden in Kew that houses the world’s largest and most diverse botanical collection. This truly is one of the best spots in London for scenery, greenery and architecture. There are many wonderful spots for photography including the glass greenhouses, the lake, Japanese gardens and the Chinese pagoda. 


South Bank

South Bank is one of London’s best-known areas and is a great site if you want grand pictures featuring iconic landmarks such as London Eye, Big Ben, Tate Modern, and the famous bridges. You can even walk along the promenade for riverside photographs.


Fulham Palace 

Fulham Palace house and gardens are located in Fulham, right by the River Thames, and is another hidden gem of London. The botanic garden at Fulham Palace is 13 acres of beautiful plants, rare trees and also has a walled garden which makes for perfect romantic couples photos.
