Barbican Estate Engagement : Chloe & Stan

When Chloe & Stan told me they quite fancied a traipse through the Brutalist architecture of the Barbican Estate to shoot their engagement photos, I was like “Damn Right!“. This is a warm, fun, creative couple who work in the music industry and have strong ideas about who they are. I was going to enjoy this shoot.

We met at Barbican’s Cinema Cafe on a wet Tuesday evening. We had a coffee, chatted and laughed about the details of their upcoming wedding, before taking a stroll through the grey, flowery high-rise concrete blocks. Concrete. SO much concrete… The look of the estate polarises opinion as to it’s design, but I love it, and on this wet evening it looked like a hopeful wasteland, with these two bringing their smiles & cheering it up.
