Ladybird’s Launch Party at Heist Bank

Ladybird’s Launch Party at Heist Bank Paddington Central

Ladybird’s Launch Party at Heist Bank (an amazing bar in Paddington) was such a great evening. As you know, I am full of praise for Emma Soulsby and have worked with her a few times, including shooting her lookbook a few months ago (blog post coming very soon). She is so talented and creates some of the most amazing arrangements for weddings and other events, so when Emma announced that she was opening a small store in the new development of Paddington Central, I knew I would have to shoot this new venture of hers.

Ladybird Flowers was taking her love of flowers and plants to another level and selling unique arrangements and potted plants that I have never seen in a conventional florist before. Sharing a space in the new bar; Heist Bank, the partnership between them just go together like Pizza-Beer-Flowers.

It was a wonderful night and want to congratulate Emma, Ladybird Flowers & Heist Bank on their new businesses and wish them every success in the future

Just a few images as promise from the wonderful night, but I would suggest that if you are ever in the area, I would definitely give it a visit. Have a beer or two, eat a pizza (the Smoked sausage, fried potatoes, sage, and chilli ones looks and smells amazing) and make sure you buy a flower or plant or both

London Fine Art Engagement Photography – Millie & Steven’s Proposal

I love a marriage proposal shoot, but this one involved an undercover mission to rival any!  This London Fine Art Engagement Photography shoot for Millie & Steven’s Proposal contained everything as if  it was from a romantic, and dramatic movie. But this was the real deal.

It all started when Steven got in touch on the day that he was going to propose with this creative plan about how and where he wanted to propose to the beautiful Millie.

Steven & Millie, who love to travel,  write a letter to each other whilst on their journey about their traveling experiences. So the plan was that Steven was going to write a letter about London, but with a twist. In this letter, Steven was going to ask Millie for her hand is marriage.

Fast forward to the evening of the special day; it started with Steven taking Millie out for dinner,  whilst I had the important assignment of picking up the extra special letter from their hotel. I was to place the letter on the steps of the statue of Eros in Piccadilly Circus, Central London. As legends go, it is said that if you propose under the statue on the stroke of midnight, it would bring you eternal luck in your marriage. So there I was at 11:30, in the pouring rain (and I mean it was pouring), setting myself up in the right position so that I wouldn’t be noticed by Millie taking pictures of her and also keeping an eye on the letter so that no one would accidentally pick it up.

Around 11:50, not knowing what Steven or Millie looked like, I noticed a couple approach the theatre next to the statue and pointing at it. I quickly understood that this was the couple, when they started to walk towards, and pointing at, the letter. I moved back into my “tourist taking pictures of the Billboards'” position and started shooting away, firstly capturing Millie reading the letter and then… Well, I will let my images tell the rest of the story.

Despite the pouring rain, which I think added to the drama, it was a moment not to be missed. To see Steven go down on one knee and the reaction of Millie was amazing. Congrats Millie & Steven, you make a wonderful couple xxx

Surrey Fine Art Wedding – Sophie & Lee’s Leatherhead & West Horsley Wedding

What was it about Sophie & Lee’s Surrey Fine Art wedding that made it one of the most special I have photographed? I believe it was that from the first time I spoke to Sophie, she was all about the photos. When a couple come to me and they talk about how important their photographs are and how much they want captured, I know that we are going to be a perfect fit.

After the initial chat to discuss their wedding ceremony at The Mansion in Leatherhead, Surrey, and then their reception at a converted barn in the village of West Horsley, Surrey, we met up at Newland Corner, just outside Guildford, Surrey for their Engagement Shoot which you can have a look at here. As you can see from the post, we hit it off straight away.

It was an early start at Sophie & Lee’s home in the lovely little village of Bramley, near Guildford, for bridal prep. It was a gorgeous morning and when I arrived to start documenting the day, I knew it was going to be a wonderful day. After the ceremony at The Mansion, Leatherhead, we moved to a quaint little pub, with its converted barn in the village of West Horsley, Surrey for their reception. I can truly say I had a great time, everyone was full of laughter, happiness and genuine love for the special couple. From the reaction and review from the couple; and also their friends & family, I definitely captured  that and I believe you will see it also in the pictures below…

 

Enjoy

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.

London Fine Art Lifestyle Maternity Photography – Cody’s Bump to Baby shoot @ 14 weeks

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.

We decided to shoot at her beautiful flat that she shares with her husband near the beautiful Holland Park in London. It was a great choice as the weather on the 1st Day of February was amazing, it was a bright sunny afternoon which bask the flat with wonderful natural light, which fitted so well in the nature of the shoot.

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.

Finally these two shots show off the Shift mechanism when use for architectural photography, which was amazing as using the Tilt mechanism.

Look out for my latest photo shoot with Cody where I used the lens for Portrait with some great results.
