 Engagement Portrait Photography.

A few days ago I did a pre wedding photo shoot with Jo and James, a delightful couple, who live in Herne Hill in London. The shoot took place in a nearby park, Clare Country Park in Suffolk, and although the weather was a bit dull and somewhat on the cold side we all had great fun and a really fantastic time.

A pre wedding photo shoot is a great opportunity for the bride and groom and the photographer to get to know each other and to get used to working with each other before the ‘big day’. It also gives the couple a chance to relax and enjoy the pleasure of being photographed in a completely stress free environment. Jo and James both said that they totally enjoyed the afternoon and that they both now felt much more at ease about being photographed on the wedding day.

In addition, Jo and James will now chose one of the photographs from the shoot to be made into a framed ‘photo board’ which will be on display at the wedding reception, all of the guests will be invited to sign the board and leave their comments and best wishes.

 Location Portrait Photography Essex.

For this portrait shoot with Rob and Emma we went off in to the countryside about 8.00PM in the evening. I wanted to make the most of the late evening sun (although actually there wasn’t a lot of it) but I also wanted to add some drama to the shots with some discerning use of off camera lighting.

For the most part the off camera lighting was carefully blended with the ambient light to produce a nice soft natural effect. But at other times I allowed the off camera lighting to dominate and overpower some of the ambient light to produce what I think is a more dramatic outcome.

The whole shoot was a fun event and I think the location, combined with creative posing and lighting gave the session a very ‘fashion portrait’ type feel.

Finally, I must add a big thanks to my son Nick for his support and help with the lighting, “thanks Nick”.

Essex Wedding Photography.

Emma & James

I was recently involved in photographing Emma and James’ wedding, which I have to say was a real pleasure, they are a delightful couple. Emma looked stunning and James and the guys really looked the part in their kilts. James is from Scotland and actually has his own tartan.

It was great to take some photographs of James and his mates beforehand they were a great bunch of lads and were clearly up for a laugh. As I say they really looked the part in their kilts and of course boys being boys had to have their fun pulling up each other kilts, or even occasionally their own!

The ceremony took place in the quiet and secluded, ‘All Saints Church’ in Rayne followed by a reception at High Barn in Great Bardfield. Although the day started off with some sunshine it unfortunately turned out quite cold and windy but of course none of that was going to ruin the day.

Sadly I can’t remember his name but one of James’ friends is a very accomplished pianist and played some fantastic pieces during the drinks reception. He really was first class.
