Lucy and Jono, Wedding photography Staffordshire

Over the next few months we're going to be seeing a lot of changes in the way we work. Myself and Lisa, have been working hard to match our styles and put out a brand new product. We'll be changing the way we're doing things so keep an eye out!

We're starting with the announcement of our 2017 wedding photography package!

Wedding photography in Staffordshire package and pricing 2017

We've officially stopped taking bookings for 2016! Now we're looking forward to wedding photography in 2017. We've already had a few dates booked in 2017 but there's still plenty available. We've worked extremely hard this year to refine our style and deliver an exceptional wedding photography experience.

Katie and Stephen, Wedding Photography, Palms Hill, Shropshire

It's august! I'm making a little change this month from my usual schedule. I tend to, if I can, post one wedding per month and post them in chronological order. The thing is, I'm attending a considerable amount more weddings than I can post at the moment and most of the weddings I blog each month are almost exactly a year old! Yep, I'm an entire year behind with my wedding blog :(

A lot happens in a year. I play with different equipment, I learn new things, tastes change, so I wanted to show where I am at right now. The style has changed quite subtly from this time last year. The images are a little more warm, the posing is different now and I use a lot less flash.

Katie and Stephen married last month. They blessed me with the opportunity to photograph their wedding ceremony at Palms Hill in Shropshire - a beautiful and exclusive wedding ceremony venue which only caters for a select few weddings per year.

These guys are pretty awesome. I first met them on their engagement shoot. They were so easy going and brilliant to photograph I knew their wedding was going to be brilliant. They had some great ideas and made their wedding ceremony very personal to them.

We had lots of laughter on the day and produced some great images together without using a single flash, a feat I've been trying to achieve for a few months now.

So this is hot off the press! As I'm writing, Katie and Stephen have only seen the slideshow and we're still waiting for the full package to be finished off. I won't be actually posting the blog until they've received it though. I just wanted to show off, right now, what my wedding photography looks like. I've posted this one alongside Mary and Tom's wedding which you can find by clicking here.

Next month, I think I've got one of my favourite weddings ever to show off. For now, here's what I think is the best wedding I've ever photographed. I've also included a slideshow at the bottom of every image from my camera at Katie and Stephens wedding in a film strip style timelapse :)

It's got everything in there, heavily over exposed, under exposed and even some of the outtakes if you can spot them!

Sophia Wilson Studio Day, 19th September 2015

It's time for the announcement of our September studio day! This time we have another local returning modelling legend Sophia Wilson! Sophia made her return to modelling a few months back. She has a great, confident style of posing for some great portraits and fashion images!

Baby Aubi, Baby photo shoots from Briscoe Photography

This weekend we had the coolest little man in. A baby so cool he grew his own natural mohawk. Baby Aubi and his equally awesome parents came in for a photoshoot. Here's a few of the highlights :)

Mary and Tom, Photography second shooter

A few days ago a good photography friend of mine asked me to head south and help him out at a wedding. I love second shooting. I don't get to do it very often but it's a nice break and a chance to look at things from a different perspective. All the pressure goes away and it gives me a great chance to have a play with a new style. I wanted to pop a few from Mary and Tom's wedding on to the blog to show the style I've been leaning toward recently.

Heather Marie Sellers Studio day, 1st August 2015

After a while off modelling Heather has returned to the world and graced us with her presence at the studio! Now known as Vivian Blue on purpleport and has come back more mature and an excellent posing style!

Rachel and John, Keele Hall Wedding photography

Whew! it is hot!!!
We've been lucky over the past weekend where I had my first two rain free weddings of the year! It's taken until July, but it's finally happened. Hopefully this amazing weather keeps up for the next weddings this month!

We also had amazing weather for Rachel and John's wedding last year! I'm going to start wishing all the brides and grooms a happy anniversary when I post because I seem to be getting round to posting weddings to the blog almost exactly a year behind now, so Happy anniversary John and Rachel!

It was a beautiful day at Keele Hall, one of my more regular wedding photography venues with both John and Rachel looking absolutely awesome! These guys really thought about their guests with the sweet cart, and casino keeping everything going but also, check out the retro arcade games which seemed to be as entertaining for the adults as it was for the kids!

I've had lots of bookings for 2016 coming in over the past few days, even a couple for 2017. For more information on booking wedding photography for 2016 click the link, and to take a look at my rather out of date wedding photography portfolio click the link too. Hopefully, when I find some time between the weddings and the studio I'll be able to up load all of my new stuff!

There's about 70 pics below, take a look!

Jo Louise Studio Day, 19th July 2015

One of the model world power houses is coming to town on July 19th. There are 10 photographer places available for this date, and they're going to go fast!

I'll let Jo's portfolio do the talking:

My first portrait. Lookin' goooooood!

Kate brought her family into the studio for a family portrait and this little one's first portrait. It's safe to say he nailed it. Future Hollywood star here. Here's a couple of highlights!

11 June 2015

Briscoe Photography proudly announces the first studio evening!

Luna is no stranger to the studio and we're so happy that we've managed to arrange her own studio evening. The studio evening is a new concept in the studio where we will arrange 3 quick fire rounds for 6 photographers to grab some strong portfolio additions quickly.

We'll make three set ups over three hours with 3 different costume changes. Each photographer gets 8-10 minutes per set up using it how they want. It's a great challenge to get some great stuff using the latest sets in the studio.

Studio family portraits at Briscoe photography, Stoke on trent

Sonia and her family popped in between the communion and their party for some quick family portraits. It's not so often the entire family come together and while they were all dressed up they chose the photography studio to pop in and get a few family snaps :D

The shoot didn't last very long at all and we had loads of fun! We also set a new record in the studio by squeezing in 15 people on to the new infinity curve. The most we've had in so far, I even think we could have fitted on a few more children!

4 June 2015

Kate and Jamie, wedding photography Staffordshire

It seems like June has finally arrived! I know this because I'm finally able to sit outside and upload images to the blog in the sun. All moved into the new flat and back to work with new wedding deliveries and happy brides and grooms!

I would have been around this time last year I attended my good Friend Kate and her husbands wedding, that was a hot day! Best of all, was the ridiculously cool falconry expert with fast and expensive birds on show!

I can't spend too much time typing, I have to get back to editing, check out the rest of the day below :)

20 May 2015

Tom and Becky, Wedding photography, Drayton Manor Park, Staffordshire wedding photography

A bit of a late one this month. Plenty of things going on, the studio is full, we're on the fourth wedding of the official wedding photography season with a few more to come and I've had lot of time taken up with a new house move with a new office set up which is going to make life more comfortable when editing :)

It means Becky and Toms wedding might not be up for long before the next one is added but I really wanted to get it up because there are some really interesting photographs in there :D

7 May 2015

Katie and Steve, Engagement, Palms Hill Wedding photography Shropshire

The other day I travelled to Palms Hill in Shropshire to have a scou/engagment shoot of an awesome little venue. I love these little known venues, often owned and run by the residents of the house they put their heart and soul into making wedding days special. They also tend to only hold a few weddings per year making it all that more special.

Palms hill looks like one of these venues and while I didn't get to meet the owners yet, the grounds look amazing and I can't wait to take some wedding photographs. It looks like one of those wedding venues where I could turn up to and create different photographs time and time again!

Here's a few from our quick engagement photography shoot with Katie and Steve.

6 May 2015

Jo Evans Studio day, 21st June 2015

She's back! We've waited a whole year to get Jo back in the studio and can't wait to see her work her stuff on the new set ups!

Popular Suicide girl Jo has been busy over the year working for some of the top UK modelling sites and she's back for one day only to do what she does best!

Rachael and Alistair, Engagement shoot, Staffordshire wedding photography

Yesterday we went for a little adventure to a place I haven't been before. I met up with Rachael and Alistair for a lovely engagement shoot. We had a chat about their wedding coming up later in the year and managed to get some lovely images just before the rain came in :)

It sounds like it's going to be a wonderful day, bring on wedding season.

Rose and Ghaleb, Sandon Hall, Wedding Photography Staffordshire

Happy Easter everyone! It's been so busy at the studio with our kitchen now refurbished and our new infinity curve have made the studio a great place to take and have photographs taken.

This month we've got Rose and Ghaleb on the blog with the wedding at Sandon Hall. I love going to Sandon Hall and this was the first wedding I photographed here after the hall itself was redecorated :D

In a summer which was ridiculously hot it was interesting to have quite a bit of rain, dodging dark clouds and using the amazing window light and features inside.

I've had a cancellation on August 1st 2015 which has opened up 2015 booking again. Remember, if you've looking to book a wedding photographer for late 2015 or 2016 get in touch and check out the 2016 wedding package here.

Jenny O'Sullivan Studio day, 9th May 2015

The may studio day is ready to go!

The popular Jenny O'Sullivan is coming to the studio and there are 10 places up for grabs. I say 10 places, but since I typed that last sentence roughly half the spaces have been grabbed!

I'll provide updates on the facebook and purpleport event as soon as I've worked out how many we have left :)

If you haven't seen Jenny before, check out her portfolio here!

4 March 2015

Emma and Tom, wedding photography, Haughton Hall Hotel

Wow! who knew I was going to be this busy in what is essentially the 'off season'. I'm still not in the busy wedding photography season yet but the weddings have already started to happen for 2015! We're also having a refurb of the studio with new kitchen facilities and hopefully a new studio area soon once we've decided what features we would like to add.

I wold like to say a big thank you to all of my customers who have essentially booked out the entire 2015 season and a few more couples still booking some late dates still. My focus is now on 2016 recently releasing the 2016 wedding photography package which includes 2 photographers as standard for the entire day! I'll keep my focus here until March when wedding season goes full throttle.

Skye and Mark, Shropshire Wedding photography

Happy new year everyone! Life as a wedding photographer doesn't seem to stop as I was right back to it on the 4th at an amazing wedding. Things are looking good to have a small(ish) break soon so I can update my website, put in the new wedding photography package and hopefully make some nice new refurbishments on the studio :D

My editing schedule has actually reduced significantly now. Only a few hours ago finishing the photographs from my last wedding. It means for the first time in around 9 months I'm actually up to date!!!!!! (until the weekend).

I had only one night of partying over Christmas and it became apparent I am not used to it. A combination of an intolerance to alcohol and food, the freezing cold weather and a hectic, never ending schedule has got me pretty run down with flu at the moment. Hopefully I'll be getting over it tomorrow ready for events this weekend. Looking through Skye and Marks sun-blessed wedding I'm feeling a little better already.

Skye and Mark had their wedding in Shropshire with their reception at a lovely little restaurant in the middle of Shrewsbury. This meant we had an amazing opportunity to explore a historical and interesting town where we found some cool colours to play with.

Skye and Marks wedding sparked a slight change in the editing style last year. I know I changed my editing style on this wedding because the action I created for it is still called "Skyemark". It has a lot more teal tones and a little more push in the whites while moving away form fades. The style stays pretty similar to this right up until December this year.

I've recently found the beauty and ease of lightroom 5 and for the lower light of the winter months I'm trying lightroom with a little bit of a dim curves fade and no colour tones. I may add a little colour to future edits but at the moment I'm loving the fade style of photographic editing in wedding photography.

Enough of the photography geek talk. To see some pretty photographs of a really pretty couple, take a look at these guys below. I've gone a bit crazy with the highlights. Usually I'd only show around 50 images from a wedding normally but as it's the new year I think there's around 100.

Hope you like!
