Relaxed Fun loving Portrait Photography in the Studio.

Once again the plan was to start in the studio and then venture out and do some cool outdoor lifestyle portraits. Once again though we were beaten by the weather. It had been fine earlier on in the morning but when we came to going out it was cold, dull and miserable, and it was pouring down.

However we had great fun in the studio and got some excellent shots. Although I always have lots of ideas about what images I want to take I always work closely with the client and think it’s important to let them influence the way the session goes, after all they know what they want. Lucy in particular was very keen to get involved and came up with some excellent ideas.

The shoot comprised of some individual shots, some brother & sister and husband & wife shots and some whole family groups shots – something to suit everyone.

Postproduction gave me a chance to stylize some of the images further and to show some of the great finishes that can be had.

Studio & Location Portraits in Halstead Essex.

Tabith is Jane and Dominic’s first child and they decided the time was right to get some professional portrait taken of her. Jane wanted some nice straight forward simple photographs but also wanted some of Tabitha in a fairy dress for possible use on Christmas cards.

So some bright high key studio shots with a white background seemed to be the ideal setting. These were all shot in my home portrait studio in Gosfield.

Although Tabitha was keen to put on her outfits she was not always so keen to step into the lime light and pose for the camera, however, a little bit of encouragement from mum and a little bit twisting, turning and laying on the floor from me seems to have done the trick and I think we have got some really beautiful photographs. Tabitha looks so sweet in all of her outfits but especially in her fairy costume.

As Tabith apeared to have so much energy Jane and I agreed to head off to nearby Broaks Wood and take some location portraits in a beautiful naturl enviroment.

I have shown a selection of images below. I know both Jane and Dominic were delighted with them, hope you like them too, feel free to comment.

Halstead Essex – Annual Remembrance Service & Parade

On Sunday 8th November I was commissioned by the Newsquest Media Group to photograph the Remembrance Parade in Halstead Essex. The images produced were to be used in local papers within the Braintree / Halstead district.

Being an ex serviceman and having served in campaigns in both Dhofar (Oman) and Northern Ireland I am used to attending such parades and in recent years have attended in an official capacity as president of the Rotary Club of Halstead. I feel it is important that we pay due respect and take time to remember those that have given their life in the service of their country. For this reason it was also important for me to capture meaningful images which told the story and captured the emotion of the day.

Essex Wedding Photography Stoke by Nayland

I was fortunate enough recently to accompany Braintree photographer Jeff Turnbull on a wedding shoot at Stoke by Nayland. The bride and groom on this occasion were Sally & Steven who were a really lovely couple and a pleasure to photograph.

Although I am a wedding photographer myself there is always something you can learn from other photographers, especially those whose images and work ethos you admire. Assisting Jeff therefore was both an education and a pleasure. I witnessed the relaxed and effective way he communicates with people and some of the very artistic and creative ways in which he combines the use of light and composition to produce some most stunning images.

Not only is Jeff one of Essex’s most creative and sought after photographers he also runs a number of courses where he imparts his skills to others. To view his images and chose a course to suit you visit his web site at www.jeffturnbull.com

Although most of my day was involved with assisting Jeff directly I did manage to take a few photo’s myself, here is a small selection of images below.

Samantha & Paul’s Wedding at Henley on Thames

Find out more about Wedding and Portrait Photography on my main website www.tonysalephotography.co.uk

Civil Wedding ceremony

I felt very privileged to have been recently commissioned to photograph Samantha and Paul’s wedding. They are a fantastic couple that were great fun to work with and it really was a pleasure to share this great day with them. The wedding ceremony was a civil ceremony at The Red Lion Hotel, a very plush hotel in the beautiful Oxfordshire village of Henley on Thames.

When I set off for Henley on the morning of the wedding it was absolutely tipping down and there seemed little prospect of it clearing up. Planning for all eventualities I had wisely packed my portable lighting kit in the car and so turned my thought’s to plan ‘B’ the wet weather plan. I much prefer to shoot wedding photographs outside in natural light and will always look for a sheltered area if I can. If not then having good quality reliable kit is essential.

As it turned out luck was on our side and the rain miraculously stopped and the skies cleared about twenty minutes before the ceremony began.

Husband & Wife Studio Portrait Photography.

I have photographed Jimmy on a previous occasion and he was extremely pleased with the final images. So pleased that he subsequently commissioned me to photograph him again this time together with his wife Lori.

They opted for studio shots as they like the semi formal bright clean finished look….and apart from that it was very cold and wet outside!

Jimmy and Lori are Sri Lanken and during the shoot Lori wore some traditional dress. She is wearing a ‘Sarong Kabaya’ – (photo’s with the peach sari) and also a ‘Sri Lanken – Sinhalese Redha-Huttey’ – (photo wearing red & gold).
