Char + Mark Snow Day

Feeling inspired by the beautiful landscape of the recent winter snow that layered our soil, you may have seen that I was searching for a couple to shoot and play with in this winter wonderland. Char and Mark where the perfect couple and we couldn't have been more happy they wanted to work with us too! 

But mother nature is her own wild woman and on our arranged winter snow fun day shoot, the sun decided to creep out and the snow began to melt! But, as the in all good show business, we simply said snow "The Show must go on" and we prevailed. 

We found our own little patch and began to work our magic, Char and Mark where excellent bravo bravo! Singing loving songs to each other, getting damp feet (Char you need Dr Martens) lots of embracing, kissing and giggling. Our little dog Bonnie on the other hand was not a fan of the damp day, patiently waiting getting wee cold paws so decided to do some excellent photo bombing to make sure she wasn't forgotten. 

Well here is my almost snow has all gone snowy couples shoot.

Hope you enjoyed the snow as much as we all. x

Pregnancy and a Happy Birthday.

I am writing this as a little happy birthday to one of my dearest and most beautiful Mumma friends. Whom I studied this wonderful thing called photography with many many moons ago it feels like. I was so honoured that she did my maternity shoot when I was pregnant with Boye last year... and honestly I have never felt so beautiful than when I saw these pictures she did of me.

So you can imagine that I was over the moon when she asked.. well more like I begged and pleaded and said I would not be her friend if she did not let me do some for her. She already has  little Ettie and is about to have number two. I had so much fun doing these images for her and it helps that her house is so cool. This is about the 4th maternity shoot I have had the chance to do and I have to say I really love doing them seeing these women just glowing is the best thing ever.

Let me know what you think of my work and if it is something I should do a bit more of? always love feed back. Or what you think about Maternity shoots... yeah or nay?

From marriage to Family.

Alexis and Joel ask me to photograph their wedding back in 2011 which was ruddy brilliant. Since then they have had two little babies and I love that they ask me back to photograph there little growing family. 

I do not often do family portraits or maternity but when I am asked by a couple I love I can hardly say no. I had so much fun photographing them we got to go into the woods in Sweden on a warm autumn afternoon and hang out with there wee ones. I really really love working with natural light and I love that every country has its own light. Its like getting a whole new pot of paints to work with.

Any ways have a look and let me know what you think.

Ruth & Sam

So here is the wedding of the sweetest little couple. I posted there engagement shoot a while ago and I decided it was high time to finally post there beautiful wedding. Andy and I loved meeting them on there engagement shoot and we where really looking forward to capturing there wedding day and we new it was going to be easy and breezy and lovely because that is exactly what these two where like.

I feel really very lucky and overwhelmed when people select me and andy as there photographers. I know it is such a massive decision for a couple to make and a long list of things you need to look for as a bride and groom. You need to find: someone who you get on with. Someone that you trust. Someone that has the style that suits your wedding. Someone that you can afford. Someone that you know will fit in to your wedding day. Someone that is me... hee hee. Even when i get the dreaded 'oh we found a different photographer' I am always so happy for the couple that they found someone that will really work for them. I mean your photographs are all you have left as your memory at the end of the day, so take time and makes sure you pick right.

 check out Ruth and Sam's wedding day to help you decided I am the photographer for you.

I love to cry at weddings

This has to hands down be the most emotional wedding Andy and I have ever shot. There was so many tears of complete happiness and love, I feel so honoured to have got to document Teresa and Martin wedding day. There out door ceremony in the middle of a family neighbours field was breathe taking. They had friends camping, bridges built, Marquees put up, hogs roasting, cakes made by friends and family and a cheese board cake.

The first time I met these two we just clicked instantly and I got super excited for there wedding. Everything the described they where going to do happened and it was magical. so chilled and relaxed and full of family and friends that you could clearly see meant the world to them.

I hope that you can see all of this in the images of there wedding below So happy to finally get around to sharing these.   

Hello you two cuties.

Another couple, another engagement shoot and another set of super cute pictures !

Sometimes I think “man, are these shoots worth doing?”. It can be a lot of trouble trying to find a time that fits around both the clients and my own work schedule, especially as I work most weekends shooting weddings. But,once I find a time that works for everyone, I get to capture a set of images like the ones from my fun day with Ruth and Sam, and it all becomes so worth it! Not just because the couple are happy with their images, but because I get to spend time with them. We have so much fun and both the couple and my self become even more excited for their wedding day. 

I initially started doing these shoots so on their wedding day the couple would be comfortable with me and Andy following them around with big cameras strapped to our faces. It’s now become more than that. It helps me to build up a friendship and  trust between us and the couple, ultimately leading to better photos.

Well here is Ruth and Sam's day out in Oxford. Let me know what you think! Stay in touch, whether it be for wedding inspiration cause your a massive fan of my photography skills or you just love everything pretty - I have lots of lovely lovely weddings coming your way!

First London Wedding

After living in London for the past 5 years I finally got to photograph my first wedding in the big city! Even better, the wedding was in my very own borough of Hackney, just a hop, skip and a jump away in the lovely, ever trendy, Stoke Newington. I was so excited to do this wedding.

 I never got the chance to meet with either the bride or groom prior to the big day, but through our exchanges of emails I knew they would be lovely. Andy and Sarah gave Andy and I free range with the photos and were up for anything we threw at them. The day was so chilled. Starting with a beautiful Town Hall ceremony and a quick walk around the corner to the reception in "The Londesborough" pub. Their wedding had a country feeling, but with the magic of the big city mixed in. 

Andy and I were so happy we got to meet this lovely couple, even more so when we found out Andy (the groom) was an extremely talented fashion photographer. Their wedding was full of photographers! I'm not going to lie, we did pee ourselves a little bit, being surround by such talented photographers, but you just have to get on with it. We were both so honoured that such a talented man had trusted us with his special day. 

I would just like to thank Andy and Sarah for being the perfect Bride and Groom and for being so much fun to photograph and to also congratulate them on the exciting news they shared - that they were expecting ! So congratulations to Mr & Mrs Eaton on becoming Newly Wed's and (soon to be) Superb Parents!
