Sarah & Al's Wedding at Braintree Town Hall

 Essex Wedding Photography. It was actually about two years ago when I was the wedding photographer for Sarah & Al’s amazing Essex wedding. The wedding took place at the very beautiful Braintree Town Hall, which is fast becoming one of my favourite wedding venues. When I arrived I met up with Al to take some portrait photos using the beautiful natural light and the features of the wonderful central staircase. When Sarah arrived with her

Location Portraits Braintree.

Location Portraits Braintree with Jeff. This series of portraits were actually shot a couple of years back at Andrewsfield airfield near Great Dunmow. Jeff is actually a good friend of mine, a fellow photographer and a very keen cyclist, perhaps even more so now than he was then. He wanted some action shots of him with his bike, so off we set to have some fun. It’s great to take portrait photographs of someone whilst

New Born Baby Photography

New born photography Photographing baby Jude Perhaps one of the best times to photograph new born babies is when they are five to ten days old in any event I prefer it to be within the first two weeks of birth. At this age, they are more likely to curl up in “womb-like” poses; they stay asleep longer, don’t mind being unclothed, and usually have their feeding schedules set to at least every two hours.

Hampton Court Wedding Photography

Tasha & Karim’s Wedding at The Thames Motor Yacht Club. Ok I have to say upfront this was one of my all-time favourite weddings to photograph. It was also one where I felt a bit more under pressure to do a fantastic job, the reason? Tasha (Natasha) is my Goddaughter and her parents Kev & Julie are very good friends. In fact Kev and I have known each other for over thirty five years having

Beautiful Eyes - Image of the Week

Baby Blue Eyes. Image of the week.   I don’t really need to say too much about this image, I think it speaks for itself. This baby girl has absolutely gorgeous blue eyes that just look straight at you. She also looks very cute wrapped up in her little red towel. The photograph was taken during a bridal prep shoot for a wedding I photographed. The little girl’s mum was one of the bridesmaids and

Shelly & Steve's Reid Rooms Wedding

Summer Wedding at The Reid Rooms, Margaret Roding. A beautiful British summers day, and I really mean that, not like so many August days of late which can be a bit flat or overcast or in some cases belting down with rain, this one really was beautiful. August last year the sun was shining and the weather calm. A brilliant day for Shelly and Steve who were getting married at The Reid Rooms in Margaret

Baddow Park Wedding

Tanya & Gareth’s Wedding at Baddow Park.   Nulli Secundus (Second to None) They say absence makes the heart grow fonder and I think that is definitely the case with Tanya & Gareth. Gareth is a soldier serving with the Coldstream Guards, when they first came to see me to enquire about wedding photography they had to wait for a convenient time when Gareth was at home on leave before they could do so. I

Wedding at Braxted Park - Image of the Week

Young Boy and his Grandad at Braxted Park. This was another image taken whilst assisting photographer Andy Griffin photographing a wedding at Braxted Park last summer. Why have chosen it as my image of the week?  Well I don’t think that requires too much explanation, I think the image it speaks for itself in volumes. What the relationship is between the little boy and the older man I don’t really know but I suspect that
