12 weeks Capturing Love – Morning Preparations

It has been 12 weeks since my first wedding of 2014, and I have just realised I haven’t wrote a post in just as long. 9 weddings, a pearl anniversary, several new born babies, many family portraits, a few makeovers, lots of gorgeous new couples and families booked in, a cat walk and just the other day a university ball (with a second to follow). It’s fair to say I have been busy without much down time, and now that I have a few hours break in my schedule I want to share a few of those stunning moments that I have captured, while trying to answer some of the questions I have been asked over the last few months too, this post will be on morning preparations.

Most recently I received an email from a student who is going to be shooting his sister’s wedding down south this summer, his sister wants morning photos doing of the preparations too and he is nervous about how to shoot it. Now I love this part of the story, as it sets the tone for the whole day to come.

You never know what to expect, the most relaxed bride at a consultation may be in a mad panic on the day over some detail that isn’t right, or on the other hand they may be so relaxed that it becomes a challenge to get that sense of excitement into the shots. My advice is quite simple; start with the smaller shots, the detail shots, the shoes, set the scene of this story!

While you’re doing this everyone will get use to the sound of the camera and my presence, and this will lead to you being able to capture some great natural shots throughout the day.

There will always be certain things happening from hair and make-up to the flowers being delivered, but what you have to remember is everything is building up to getting the dress/suit on and the ceremony.

I focus on brides and grooms, straight, gay or lesbian, and love being able to start a story at the morning preparations as it really does set the scene for the day to come. My next post will be on this weekends wedding with Emily & Mikey who are getting married at the Brandon Hall, than I will be doing a follow up post to this on ceremonies.

Hope you have been able to take something from this post and don’t forget to like the face book page 🙂

Thankyou 2013, Welcome 2014

Yesterday I finished going through all of the lovely photos I caught from the two pre wedding sessions I had over the weekend, and it got me thinking about how much I have changed in the last few years.

Photography has always been a passion and I am so lucky that I get to do it as my job, but what I love about photographs is how I get to capture a single moment forever. I don’t think you get to appreciate true worth of a moment until it becomes a memory, and I feel like being able to capture that in a photograph is my gift. I feel honoured that I get to work with and find friends with the amazing couples and kindest of families that I capture through photographs.

It’s been nearly three months since I updated the blog (I get lost in the love and life of everyone that I work with) and have realised that I needed to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who booked me in 2013 before letting that year pass by without a mention – not forgetting all those who have recommended and supported me either!!! Lots of Love…

2014 is shaping up to look like yet another great year – just over two weeks in and have had a lovely new born session plus started a few of my pre wedding sessions for some of my 2014 couples getting ready to tie the knot. I will never get bored of this job, FACT!!! I learn something new every day, and try out new things all the time, I mean come on, not to sound cheesy but I get to create memories in photographs that will get cherished forever – FOREVER – appreciate that word!!! The idea of that was scary at the start of this journey, a good scary though! The type of scary that pushes you to new levels and makes you always want to do your best!

I am a photographer of life, I will capture your love, your family, the most important day of your life, and I will print it, frame it (even hang it if you ask!). I love knowing that those moments, memories, will be cherished forever because of how I have captured that fleeting moment in time.

I have added a few of the images I have took so far in 2014 for you to enjoy, I simply love them all and I hope you do too.

Self Portraits l Get Ready to Save the Dates!!!

On Saturday just gone I spent the day photographing beautiful babies, families and couples… before I packed away however I shouted Dav to the studio and we decided to have a play with save the date ideas… Now we have until 2014 to work out our save the dates, so we had fun playing with all of the Fun Booth Props and this is what we came up with… Our ‘Get Ready to Save the Dates’ – and I love them… however this just means that our actual save the dates need to be 10 times better than this… so watch this space… January we will reveal all xus

Busy October l Babies l Dreamers l Weddings

October is nearly at an end, just over a week to go, and I am almost counting down the days… I will be back to being a photographer full time… what could be better…

Don’t get me wrong this charity wedding fayre is great fun in organising, I have learnt loads of new things and met lots of incredible people on this journey, but 8weeks to do it, its safe to say I have missed the odd night off.

Saturday just gone I had a 100% photography day, and I loved it! I had so much fun with all the babies and families (and a newly engaged couple – congratulations again and I look forward to photographing your wedding), I got to try out my new baby props, and loved them, it was so refreshing to have that break.

This Saturday I have the wedding of the beautiful Claire to photograph, as she marries the love of her life Karl. Than Sunday its THE DAY!!! The Dreamers Wedding Fayre for Macmillan Cancer Support at the Holiday Inn Coventry South has arrived. Its 11am to 3pm so don’t miss it, we have lots of different and unique stands from wedding specialists, literally this isn’t the normal type of wedding fayre, this is pure variety, come and check it out. We have managed to get thousands of pounds of prizes donated to us for a raffle like no other – come and try your luck – you may be leaving with a holiday for up to 6 or a great activity day that will wow every stag.

It is going to be a great day, and if your getting married, newly engaged, or just love love, come along, their is something for everyone. Right, November will be here soon and I will be back updating my work and news more often, have a sneaky peak at these baby pics though from the weekend…

September Weddings

  So I have been chaotic busy with wedding fayre planning the last month, but that’s not to say I haven’t enjoyed some beautiful weddings in the last month. And I just want to share some of those teasers quickly, as they have been totally different to previous weddings, with different styles and one of a kind characters. View these sample pics below and let me know what you think 🙂
