I love photographing flowers, either growing wild, or growing in formal gardens or informal gardens or even occasionally photographing them in the studio. In fact you may have seen my post a few weeks back of some daffodils which were photographed in my studio, have a look now if you didn’t see them.

This year we had some beautiful pink roses growing in our garden at home and I decided to pick a few and give then the studio treatment. I have included a selection of pictures below and just for something different I have decided to add a number of poems / quotes about the colour pink and / or pink roses.

Flower of Love

The rose is a flower of love. The world has acclaimed it for centuries. Pink roses are for love hopeful and expectant. White roses are for love dead or forsaken, but the red roses, ah the red roses are for love triumphant.

The pink dawn

Slow buds the pink dawn like a rose from out night’s gray and cloudy sheath; softly and still it grows and grows, Petal by petal, leaf by leaf.

The Rose Beyond The Wall

A rose once grew where all could see,
sheltered beside a garden wall,
and as the days passed swiftly by,
it spread its branches, straight and tall…
One day, a beam of light shone through
a crevice that had opened wide
the rose bent gently toward its warmth
then passed beyond to the other side
Now, you who deeply feel its loss,
be comforted – the rose blooms there-
its beauty even greater now, nurtured by
God’s own loving care.

I love photographing wedding.

I love photographing weddings and I love photographing weddings in Braintree, it was a real pleasure therefore to photograph the wedding of Heather and Andy at St Mary’s Church in Bocking followed by a reception at The White Hart Hotel in Braintree.

Heather and Andy have know each other since childhood but have spent most of their lives living apart in fact Heather spent many years living in America where she had her two wonderful children Charlotte, who was the maid of honour and Thomas who gave the bride (his mum) away.

They live in Golders Green in North London where Andy works as a Park Ranger. He also has a great passion for fungi and runs a number of walks, forays and workshops. He has a great website to and you can find lots of details and photographs here, www.fungitobewith.org

I started the day taking some bridal prep photographs of Heather at the White Hart, the room she was in had this wonderful four poster bed and some beautiful light coming in through the window, it was perfect for capturing some gorgeous portraits, Heather really did look stunning.

I then met the boys, Andy and his brother Archie, who was also the Best Man, at St Mary’s Church and captured some portraits and fun shots of the two of them before the guests arrived.

Although it had been threatening rain in the morning it turned out to be a beautiful, warm bright day. The ceremony was tearful, poignant and romantic and the reception was full of love, fun and great humour.

Heather and Andy really are such a lovely couple, I thoroughly enjoyed my time with them and I wish a long and happy life together.

If you are planning an Essex Wedding in 2012, and would like to discuss your Wedding Photography then please do not hesitate to contact me.

A selection of some of my favourite images from the day can be seen below. Please do leave a comment if you can.

The Bride Arrives With Her Son & Daughter

Here are some very kind words from Heather & Andy shorty after receiving their wedding photos.

My husband Andy and I were thrilled with our choice of using Tony Sale as our wedding photographer. Tony’s manner was very professional and he gave us lots of direction prior to the big day telling us what to expect and making sure we came up with our list of desire photos. He fulfilled our list to the letter and the quality of the photographs was incredible. He also managed a busy schedule from the various locations and was calm and respectful of our guests. I would highly recommend Tony for any photography engagement.

My wife (Kate) and I have been trying desperately to get some Olympic event tickets for both the Olympics and the Para Olympics but with no joy whatsoever. Well not in our price range anyway, we were set on getting tickets for events in the Olympic Stadium because it was really there that we wanted to experience the Olympic atmosphere. We did apply online for two tickets priced at £150 each which to our surprise seemed to be accepted however when we clicked the confirm and pay button it came back asking for £3000! We checked several times the tickets were definitely showing at £150 each but when it came to pay were £1500 each. Needless to say we didn’t buy them. I am just a poor photographer after all.

Anyway, although we couldn’t get tickets for the stadium we decided we did want to go up and look around the Olympic Park, luckily we did manage to get tickets for that and last Tuesday we went up with our two sons Robert and Nicholas to look around.

We actually got tickets for the 4.00 PM to 9.00 Pm slot which I thought was a great as I’m a big fan of low light photography and it knew it would start to get dark before we left. We had a thouroughly enjoyable time and were very impressed with the park, it’s huge, very interesting and very well designed.

I do have to mention as well, the camera I took with me was my Nikon D7000, I didn’t take a tripod as I thought there may be problems using it in the park (turns out quite a few people did have tripods and were allowed to use them). Anyway because I didn’t have one and had to hand hold my camera I was forced really t o use a high ISO. The night time shots here were taken with the ISO set between 2500 and 5000 and I have to say I’m pretty impressed with the results. Shutter speeds were between 1/20 sec and 1/80 sec.

See what you think?
