I’m really pleased to announce an additional service I’ll be offering to couples this year at no additional cost. Your own online wedding photography gallery.
I was standing in a beautiful little churchyard a couple of weeks ago, having found a lovely spot for a bride and groom portrait. While the bride and groom positioned themselves a guest came up and took a picture of them and then said to me:
“I hope you don’t mind. At the last wedding I took a photo and the wedding photographer told me off!”
When you need new images for your website and you’ve just completed a gruelling mountain bike challenge in South Africa but have no photos what do you do? This was the dilemma faced by local bike shop owner Paul.
As I’ve mentioned before on my website, asides from wedding photography my other passion in life is cycling both as a rider and coach. For the last five years or so my cycle club have asked me to photograph their major cycle race.
JJ Fox in St. James London is the UK’s oldest cigar shop and needed interior photos for their publicity material. So back in December I spent the day in their shop photographing both their interiors and artefacts.
At Old Billingsgate
A couple of weeks ago I was asked to photograph the Christmas party for a large national chain of estate agents at the historic Old Billingsgate Market.
Joking aside, couples are very generous and often want to include the wedding photographer in their sit down meal. Although it may sound ungrateful my preference is not to eat with your wedding guests, let me explain why: Read More
Laura and Tom had already released balloons with their guests, you can see their wedding photos here. They hung on to a few balloons and brought them with them for their portraits. We had always planned to take a photo on the bridge as the couple loved the Sudbury Meadows. After taking their photos I spotted they had let go of the balloons, I love taking photos of the bride and groom within a landscape and the balloons just finish it off.
At The Mill Hotel, Sudbury Suffolk
At the end of the summer I photographed the fabulous Laura and Tom’s peacock themed wedding at The Mill Hotel, Sudbury Suffolk. The day centred around the venue, with family photos and confetti in front of the hotel. Read More
On Friday 31st July I joined the team from the Magic Moments charity to make the long journey north to Fort William, our base for the night before climbing the first of the three peaks, Ben Nevis the next afternoon. We reached the bitterly cold summit still with patches of snow, then quickly made our descent as darkness began to fall. Driving through the night we reached Wasdale in the Lake District at around five in the morning. Bleary eyed we climbed Scafell Pike much lower than Ben Nevis but still arduous, fatigue was beginning to be felt but we made the summit together. Finally the drive to Snowdon in Wales with most of us sleeping except for essential refuelling at a motorway service station. Finally the ascent of Snowdon on a beautiful, warm early Sunday evening. Despite the fatigue I think at this point we all knew we would succeed and although feeling plenty of aches and pains spirits where high. Just as the sun set we reached our final summit. Before head torches on and one final descent.
