All I can really remember from this shoot is how soggy my feet were! Richard and Diane suggested we travel to a park they like to go to in Redditch for their engagement shoot. It rained, pretty hard, but it cleared for a bit allowing us to get out there and get some great shots for to celebrate their engagement. I decided to go a little more hipster on this one. The rustic style suits the weather and Richard and Diane said they really liked autumn colours. We went for a poorly equipped hike across muddy trails and up a very slippery hill to get to some really beautiful spots hidden in the trees :)
A circus performer by trade, Eve is a well published and highly sought after agency represented model working regularly at top events across the UK.
Eve popped into the studio so we could show off what we can achieve in a short amount of time. As with Danielle I wanted to produce a strong image set in under 45 minutes. It's a real testament to a models skill when you can take a small, simple and quick lighting set up and create some really strong images. Eve is another exceptional model with great awareness and has an excellent connection with the camera.
Wedding season has finally come to a close, end of October. Just a few weddings left to edit (and one or two dotted wedding dates up until Christmas) then I'll be ready to concentrate on the studio for the winter!
I'll be starting my wedding campaign again in January with the wedding photography season set to recommence in March next year! I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all 25 brides and grooms who are already booked in for 2014 and I can't wait to see all of your wonderful and unique wedding days!
For today's blog we continue with the Summer! I was so humbled when Lauren and Geoff asked me to travel down to Somerset, right onto the fields of the infamous Glastonbury festival to photograph their truly amazing rustic wedding. Bunting and pastel colours galore AND SUN!!!
I'm starting to miss the sun now we're in Autumn. Unlike last year, I've been very lucky with a lot of sunny weddings along with stunning couples making it so easy to photograph weddings. Lauren and Geoff's stunning farm location just made it that more special.
We hit a record for the studio when Danielle brought her family in for a family portrait in our Stoke-on-trent studio. In the short space of time our studio had been open we've had many varying requests but we weren't sure how many we could fit into one photograph!
So when faced with 16, we were beginning to wonder if we had tested the boundaries too far. We popped everyone in a saw we even had a little room to spare for a few more creating this really cute family portrait!
