A few months ago I shared a few photos from Kirsten & Dan's pre-wedding woodland photography shoot. And this week I'm super excited to be heading off to photograph their relaxed wedding on the Greek Island of Skiathos
Kirsten & Dan are having a destination wedding in Greece in August, and guess what - I'm the lucky lady that gets to be their wedding photographer. In March we went for a little wander in the woods for their engagement shoot and they even brought along their cute pooch Reggie
Zara & Stuart's Quirky DIY Spring Wedding at Blackfriars Priory Gloucester. Think Daffodils, hot cross buns and some awesome moves on the dance floor. After some Easter Wedding Inspiration? Look no further!
I often like to share my travel tales with others - what better place to do it than my blog. In January I went to Iceland for a few days with my other half, Damon. I can certainly see why it is a popular elopement destination. I would love to shoot a wedding there! World famous for its geothermal landscape, one of the greatest things about visiting here is its uniqueness, I can tell you there is no landscape quite like it.
Considering having an unplugged wedding? What's that you say?! To put it simply it's where you ask your mates that for just one day, they get off their phones and other electronic devices that take photos or record video during your wedding. Here are some benefits to having an unplugged ceremony. . .
Last week I volunteered once again as event photographer for local group Kings Heath Action for Refugees (KHAR). KHAR is a community group working with individuals, schools and other groups to respond to the refugee crisis in Europe.
So your planning your 2017 or 2018 wedding? 2019 if you are super organised (my hats off to you)! Are you looking for your perfect wedding photographer to suit your natural and relaxed wedding? I'm a creative documentary wedding photographer based in Birmingham in the West Midlands and that means I'm in the perfect spot to travel all over the UK and to Europe for Destination Weddings.
So what is documentary wedding photography exactly? Otherwise known as photojournalism or reportage photography, documentary photography essentially does what it says on the tin - it documents your day, just as it was. A truthful account, with nothing forced posed or orchestrated. That's me!
First off let me be clear, I love Pinterest. I'm constantly using it for home decor ideas, photography inspiration to hair styles. When it comes to planning your wedding day it can be really handy too. As a wedding photographer though I always give a word of warning to couples planning their big day and are big Pinterest lovers - take what you see with a pinch of salt. Find out why here. . .
Thinking that you may need a second photographer included in your photography package? Two is better than one right? The answer totally depends on you, the size of your wedding and what you want covered, and what is possible with the time and venue(s). I usually work alone but I'm always happy to add a second shooter onto any of my wedding photography packages.
Choosing a photographer is one of the most important wedding details. The day you’ve waited for will be over before you know it, and after the day the only thing you’ll have is the memories and your photographs to enjoy forever, not forgetting your lovely other half of course! In the digital age we live in it often feels like there is a never-ending list of options. This means that selecting a photographer can be a bit overwhelming, so how can you choose?
People often ask me what I LOVE to photograph most, and honestly my answer is always the same: people. They are why photographing weddings is the best thing ever to me, there's so much to shoot and no two are the same, even at the same venue. I love all weddings, no matter what kind. That said, I do have a wedding bucket list of sorts - here's a few off the top of my head. . .
I want to tell you a story, one image - one big wedding. Why you say? Simple, every image is important. Each and every one of the little moments I photograph that make up a couples wedding day. The bits in between are just as important as the 'I do's', the speeches and the first dance. Whether it's a simple detail or something as simple as a hug that passed by in an instant.
Last week another photographer said I should think about investment into a photography festival, specifically SNAP Photography Festival. I'd already heard about it and was already convinced how UTTERLY AMAZING it would be to go. . .
