Our Dogs Portraits – Oxfordshire Pet Portraits Photography

My second post during the Lockdown of 2020 is about 2 Sprockers & a Great Dane x Labrador. These 3 Bitches are probably the best dogs in the world and deserve a few amazing images to show off to my audience.

Around the small village of Benson, South Oxfordshire, where we live, we have some great countryside where we can walk for miles and the dogs run, using all up all their energy. In and out of streams, chasing birds and generally just getting pretty dirty. But before all the fun, they were models for a few minutes and what great models they were.

Check out my 21 favourite images from the shoot.

London Maternity Portrait Photography – Sarah’s Battersea Park Maternity Shoot

At the time of writing this, Sarah has given birth to a beautiful baby girl called Genevieve. I want to send the biggest congratulations and I am so glad we got a chance to do your London Maternity Photography session and you received the images in time before your wonderful bundle of joy enter the world xxx

London Maternity Photography Shoot at Battersea Park with Sarah

It was such a pleasure to photograph Sarah for her London Maternity Photography session on a beautiful sunny day in Battersea Park South West London. With the River Thames running past the park with views of Chelsea Bridge to the East and Albert Bridge to the West, it is such a picturesque place to have a Photo Shoot. 

Sarah got in contact with me when she was 38 weeks, so it was literally a couple of weeks before her baby girl was due. We decided to meet by the Peace Pagoda next to the River, on a gorgeous summer day in May, where we could get stunning shots of Chelsea Embankment and the Bridges as backdrops. Also, the Peace Pagoda is such an iconic place in Battersea Park alongside the Zoo and bandstand that we had to get images with Sarah there.

The morning was gorgeous; the sun was shining with a cool breeze and it was just a perfect peaceful day for a London Maternity Photography session. We started out taking portraits next to the River changing the view from Chelsea Bridge, Albert Bridge and Chelsea Embankment. We then move a small garden with the Peace Pagoda in the background, before then moving to the Peace Pagoda itself.

We chatted quite a lot through the session, finding out that she had two other girls, move from USA 8 years ago with her husband and, also was in the middle of moving house!

We moved the session towards the centre of Battersea Park taking in the long grass and some of the other beauties in the park including Russell Page Garden.

After a quick outfit change we went to the famous Bandstand for a few iconic images and then finally ending the session next to the Fountains (which decided to stop when we wanted them in the background)

It was such a pleasurable photoshoot and look forward to doing more of these sessions in the future.

Below is some of my favourite images from Sarah’s London Maternity Photography session.

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.

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.
