Bridal Photo Shoot

In between the many weddings I've got at the moment, on Tuesday I had the opportunity to get my creative juices going with a photo shoot for new Tewksbury based wedding events company; Poppy's Events. Here's the collection of photos.

Thanks to all the suppliers who were involved. Caley Soul Make Up, Darcy and Eliza Vintage Hire, The Greenway Spa and Hotel and model, Wave Marie Baldwin.

Wedding Fever

Hello again everyone! It's been a while since my last blog, but I've done 7 more weddings over this last month or so and they're keeping me rather busy, (and quiet!) on the old blog front! 

Here's a snippet of shots from them. To check out more photos from all of these weddings simply click on 'Latest' and start scrolling.

Enjoy, oh, and if you don't hear from me for a while it's because I've got 35 weddings to photograph this year, the majority of which are coming up in the next two months!



Michelle & Roger's Pre-Wedding Shoot

Michelle and Roger recently contacted me about photographing their wedding. They'd looked at lots of different photographers but I was their favourite - they liked the fact my formal shots, although posed, still contained a lovely element of fun. They booked an engagement photo shoot with me prior to confirming me as their wedding photographer.

I suggested Crickley Hill Country Park. The beautiful views would make a stunning backdrop, plus there are very few people up there so nice empty backgrounds too.

Michelle and Roger are the first to admit they are not comfortable in front of the camera. However, like all my pre-wedding shoots, I kept things relaxed and informal, letting them take things at their own pace and posing in positions they felt comfortable in.

I got the photos back to them within a matter of days and they booked me within hours of seeing them!

I'm so looking forward to photographing their wedding next June. It's going to be great to work together.


Engagement Shoot @ Pittville Park, Cheltenham

It was an early start last Sunday as I made my way to Pittville Park to meet Rebecca & James for their engagement shoot.

The early start was my suggestion. Pittville Park can get really busy, especially on a beautiful morning like it was last Sunday. And it paid off, we got lots of lovely photos with beautiful empty backgrounds, free from all the bustle of park life. By mid morning Rebecca in particular noticed how much busier it was and was thankful they had pulled themselves out of bed!

Pittville Park is a great place for a photo shoot. It's very big with lots of different places to go. The hour and a half we had together flew by. We started at the iconic Pittville Pump Rooms then took a stroll down to the children's playground. It was deserted, (we walked back this way at the end of the shoot and you couldn't move for all the children.)

We paused briefly at the bridge over the lake before heading round to the stepping stones and more play equipment. We followed the winding path round to the waterfalls before taking a slow walk back, stopping every now and then for a photo opportunity.

Rebecca and James are to marry this July, watch this space for photos from their wedding!

The last of 2014's weddings!

It's been a while since I wrote my last blog, but I've been super busy. In October I was preparing the grand opening of my new photography studio, which took place in November. I've had lots of weddings in the run up to Christmas, including two over the Christmas weekend.

So I thought it time I posted a few snaps from the last three or four weddings from 2014, I hope you like them.

My first wedding for 2015 falls on Valentines day, gonna be a lot of love in the air!
