Game of Thrones Bridal Shoot

Winter might not be coming, but this Bridal Shoot will get you in the mood for the new series of Game of Thrones

Depending on how much you are fan of Game of Thrones you have only have wait a few hours or just under 24 hours before watching the most anticipated new series of this thrilling TV Show. The HBO series has everything that makes it one of the best shows made for TV, in my mind and quite a few others, I believe.

So it was fitting that the very popular wedding blog, “Want That Wedding”, decided to share a Bridal shoot that I was honoured to plan and photographed last summer. I won’t go into too much details as Sonia Collett from Want That Wedding wrote up a great piece, and you can also read what Erin Balfour the styling co-ordinator & joint planner of this Bridal shoot and myself had to say about planning it.

Please click on the link, even if you are not a Game of Thrones fan, because you will love it. From the stunning dresses provided by Heart Aflutter Bridal, the amazing creative hair styling from Love Hair by Louise to the breathtaking cake from French made. All this set-up in the spectacular venue of Blackfriars in Gloucester.

 

Just a few images from the day, but more on the blog from Want That Wedding.

Cody’s Bump to Baby – 14 weeks; The first shoot of the series.

It is such a pleasure to be able to offer Fine Art Maternity Photography and capture such a precious time in a woman’s life

I was very excited when I was approach by Cody to shoot her at different stages of her maternity. We scheduled the first of our Bump to Baby photo shoots together when Cody was 14 weeks. We felt this was good time as Cody’s bump was just started to show.

Surrey Fine Art Wedding Photography – Rachael & Terry’s Farleigh Golf Club Wedding

What a great wedding;

A few months ago Terry got in touch with me asking if I was free to shoot his and Rachael’s big day. Without hesitation I said yes.

I have known Rachael & Terry for over 10 years now, since both our sons have played in the same football team or against each other over the years.

After being together for 20 years and three children later, they decided it was the right time to tie the knot.

So over a week ago, Rachael & Terry got married.

It was such a beautiful day at Farleigh Golf Club with the weather playing ball after a few days of torrential  rain. With family and friends joining in the celebration, it was truly a great wedding…

I thought it would be great to show a sneak peek of the wonderful day.

Manchester Fine Art Engagement Photography – Ammaarah & Hamza

Manchester Surprise Marriage Proposal – Hamza proposes to Ammaarah

I was contacted by Hamza, as he had planned a romantic shopping and dinner trip to Manchester for his beautiful girlfriend Ammaarah. But what she didnt know, was that he was also planning to surprise her with a marriage proposal at the famous Manchester restaurant Rosso over lunch.

We discussed the plan on how and where I would photograph them in the restaurant and also the signal for me when he was ready to pop the question. With the cake ordered that would hold the gorgeous ring, and the table booked, the day was set for a very romantic marriage proposal.

I arrived at the restaurant early to speak to the manager, who showed me where the couple will be seated and the best place at the bar for me to get the best angle to photograph the couple from, but would also be discreet enough that they wouldn’t see me before the big moment.

It was very exciting shooting this surprise wedding proposal, and when they brought out the cake with the ring, and when Ammaarah notice what was happening, the look on her face was priceless!!

After the special moment and Ammaarah saying yes, we took a short walk to Manchester City Centre for a quick couple shoot before I left Hamza & Ammaarah to continue with their celebration.

Congrats to Hamza & Ammaarah, they were such a great couple, I am so glad that I played a part in your precious moment and  got photograph this special day.

Wishing them all the luck in the world and look forward to the announcement of their wedding.

Berkshire Fine Art Wedding – Katrina & Dominic

Katrina & Dominic’s Berkshire Fine Art Wedding

I was approached by Katrina as a fellow photographer, who was unavailable, recommended me. I was pleased to say that I was free and that would love photograph their small, beautiful Berkshire Wedding.

After meeting up for their Pre-Wedding/Engagement shoot, where we discuss the big day, I knew it was going to be a wonderful occasion and a lot to look forward to.

Fast forward to a day in the middle of the month of September, I met up with my Assistant for the day, Lucie. We headed up into the beautiful hills above the village of Cookham for Katrina’s Bridal prep. Even though Lucie had to call the AA due to her breaking the handle of her car seat and couldn’t get it back into a driving position, that didn’t stop it from being a splendid day. The weather was gorgeous and everything from the ceremony in the small local church to the reception held by the River Thames in Marlow was just perfect for Katrina, Dominic and all their guest.

It was a truly wonderful day and a joy to be part of…

Thanks again to Lucie Watson, for being a great help on the day.

Surrey & London Wedding Photography – Brick Lane Styled Shoot

Alternative Bridal Styled Shoot – A walk down and around Brick Lane, Shoreditch

Last Sunday (8th March 2015), I joined up with a few photography friends and hit the famous Brick Lane in East London. We organise a Bridal Styled Shoot along the  vibrate, colourful and diverse street in Shoreditch.

This shoot, was very much different for me, as the alternative theme was far from my usual style of elegant and contemporary. But saying that, it was great to work on something like this and add my own usual taste to it.

Thanks to the real Rock & Roll Model Couple, Sally & Reece. They really brought the shoot to life with their cool style and attitude.

Surrey Wedding Photography – London & a 24mm Tilt/Shift Lens

My short walk along the River Thames in London shooting on with a 24mm Tilt/Shift Lens

The first thing I have to say is about this post, is that it isn’t a real technical review of a lens. It is just my view of my use of the lens over a weekend and what I liked and disliked about using it.

As a Surrey Wedding Photographer, I am always looking to learn new techniques and try out equipment that can improve me. Now you will always hear that it is not about the equipment and having the latest, most expensive lens or camera will not make you the best photographer in the world, but some techniques need specialist equipment  to achieve a specific look.

For a walk around London, I decided to rent a Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II from Lens Locker who are based in Twickenham London. I have rented from Lens Locker for a few years now and can’t speak highly enough of them. Even when it comes to a last minute emergency, I always feel that I can call on them for a next day pick-up of a lens or some other equipment.

The Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L is, for the people who don’t know, is a Tilt/Shift Lens, which is a specialist lens mostly used for architectural, landscape and product photography. But over the years, I have seen it been used more and more in portrait and also Wedding photography. The most popular use in recent years has been for the Toy town look you see use in TV programmes like Location, Location, Location.

I decided that with a few Portrait shoots coming up in some great locations in and around London, I would rent the lens to see what I could create and if it would fit into my style of working.

What a lens it is! I am not really a fan of wide angle lens, but I thought I would give it a go too see if I could, again, fit it into my style of working. Using as a normal lens without the Tilt/Shift mechanism, was great, but putting it to it full use was the best fun. Even though it is Manual focusing, that didn’t put me off and actually, it made me stop and really think about the shot I wanted to achieve. I just love using the Tilt mechanism and I know that it has been done to death, but creating the miniature look was great fun and it is something I would love to do more of.

Anyway enough waffle, here are some shots from the weekend. All images were taken using my trustee Canon 5D MarkII, the Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II and my old non-branded Tripod.

Surrey Fine Art Wedding Photography – Kelleigh & Jason’s Oaks Farm Wedding

Team Campbell’s Wedding was always going to be a big occasion. Kelleigh & Jason started planning their wedding with over 18 months to go, but from my first meeting with the couple, you can tell that Kelleigh was a lady that didn’t leave anything to chance. She had booked Oaks Farm in the Hills of Shirley, Surrey as her best friend got married there previously and next on her list was a photographer. When we met, I know this an old cliche, but we hit it off straight away. Both Jason & Kelleigh were so outgoing and  bubbly, we just started talking about everything and what was supposed to be a brief meeting turned into a couple of drinks and old friends chatting away. After the meeting, they had no hesitation in booking me.

Fast forward 18 months, we met up for their engagement shoot which turned out to be a wonderful walk around Dulwich Park in South London which you can read all about here.

So on to the big day; it started with the sun shining and contagious excitement in the air. Even though rain was forecast for later on in the day, this wasn’t going to spoil the mood of the day. And that statement stayed true, it was a wonderful day from start to finish. I’m going to bring out the old cliches, but it has to be said; we laughed, cried and laughed even more.

Jason & Kelleigh Campbell are truly a wonderful couple and it was pleasure being part of their day.

Surrey Fine Art Wedding Photography – Sophie & Lee’s Newland Corner Engagement Shoot

Sneak Peek of Sophie & Lee Engagement Shoot at Newlines Corner, Surrey

So today was fun, I met up with Sophie, Lee and my new best friend Teddy. Sophie contacted me about me being their Surrey Wedding Photographer a few weeks ago. After she saw the images from a previous wedding I shot at The Mansion (Leatherhead Registry Office), she was so pleased that I was free on her wedding day to shoot it.

We decided to meet up in the gorgeous and stunning Newland Corner based within the beautiful Surrey Hills.

Anyway here is a sneak peek of today for you to enjoy. More to follow once the films are developed and I get the scans back.
