Back out with Lisa (www.lisawebbphotography.co.uk) again to see this beautiful couple get married on the Welsh border. These guys had some great little quirks for the guests like a doughnut stand, ice cream, and beautiful room design. A few choice images below the cut but head over to Lisa's website to see much more of the day!
George and Mai were married a few weeks ago and I did some second shooting for Lisa Webb Photography. Lisa has built a huge business in Shropshire and covers all over the country, check her stuff out as she does some ridiculously cool weddings, more pics under the cut!
This wedding was ridiculously fun, I don't really have much else to say about that one. So much stuff went on I've struggled to cut down this wedding into a reasonably sized highlight post. I know I've missed so many great images, so many awesome candids, I'm actually gutted to press the post button!
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!
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.
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!
I'd never heard of Compton Verney before Laura and Mark invited me along for their engagement shoot and I was absolutely blown away. Considering it's located only a few miles from my home town and contains some of Britain's most expensive and historical art pieces I figured I should know about it. Either way, the visit made me ridiculously excited to shoot this wedding. Laura and Mark informed me there would be only 11 of their nearest and dearest attending in a room, surrounded by art, which has never been used as a wedding venue until their date. In a word, honoured.
On the day, the conditions couldn't have been more perfect and it produced some my favourite, ever, wedding photographs. An absolutely memorable day for me with a wonderful couple.
To Stevenage! A strange coincidence that I who two couples back-to-back called Dave and Lisa at different ends of the country. For this Dave and Lisa it's all about the details, especially as Lisa owns her own bespoke order wedding service and she didn't disappoint! Lisa has some amazing ideas and a great eye for detail (you'll see below).
I really loved David and Lisa's input, it helped me take on some great new wedding photography challenges. If you happen to read the blog posts regularly you might see some subtle differences and different types of wedding photographs I may not normally take.
Whoo hoo! We've moved into September of last year and what a wedding I've got for you today!
Priti and Chris had their wedding day at Heath House in Tean on a beautiful sunny day, perfect for wedding photography. Personally, the image above is one of my favourite EVER. I love the chairs and how they were stacked out. Sometimes it just comes down to a little bit of luck and, boom, an awesome wedding photograph.
A very very long day, I think I had to catch a flight that evening to a wedding in Spain too. But it was well worth sticking around until the end to get some crazy party shots, and a pretty spectacular first (and second) dance.
Thanks so much for the Heath house, their staff and catering for being so helpful on the day. Also, a huge shout goes to Wayne The Staffordshire toastmaster, I've seen many toastmasters in my short career but none as good and helpful as this guy.
Remember, we're still booking for 2015, lots of couples have taken up our new wedding photography offer - We now have at least one wedding booked for each month next year! This is quite unbelievable to have this level of booking a year ahead and thank you so much to all of the couples who have been to the studio recently :)
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!
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.
Wedding photography form Rose and Ghaleb's day below!
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 :)
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.
