‘BIG’ 2 DAYS | HAZLEWOOD CASTLE | JUNE 2013

‘BIG’ 2 DAYS | HAZLEWOOD CASTLE | JUNE 2013

‘BIG 2 DAYS’ | HAZLEWOOD CASTLE | JUNE 2013

Over the last few months I have been very lucky to train & learn from some great photographers @ weddings & photo shoots.

This photo shoot was something slightly different!

Arranged by the ‘main’ photographer & a model agency, we, as photographers where given the option of a number of different shoots we could choose

throughout the day.

Some of these where more training sessions with the main photographer, but in the main, we where sent off in our own little groups of around 3/4

photographers, shown the areas & told we had free reign!

This was obviously a little nerve wrecking, but was so much fun & I feel I learnt more from this day than perhaps the ‘staged’ photo shoots.

Anyway below are some of the images from the day!

The first selection of image we’re with Miss Harrogate, Olivia, in what can only be described as really harsh sunlight – although it sounds great, sunlight

is the hardest weather to deal with! 😉

 We then ventured inside, which was SO warm!!, but we were this time photographing the lovely Jess, in a bridal boudoir setting! 😉

The final shoot of the day came after tea, it was a bridal shoot with Viv, in York centre. I decided to assist in this shoot, so didn’t manage to take too many images, but here’s 1 outside York Minster

The next day started with something a bit ‘new’ to me, the chance to do a little fashion like shoot in the grounds, again of Hazlewood Caste. This is something I was looking forward to, and actually really enjoyed.

The shots came thick & fast, the next one was a bride & groom shoot with Emily & Luke, who worked so well together, it made the shoot very easy! – Well easier anyway! 😉

Becky & Gary | Preston | May 24th 2013

Becky & Gary | Preston | May 24th 2013

BECKY & GARY | PRESTON | MAY 24TH 2013

Becky & Gary’s wedding was a lovely quiet affair, organised 3/4 months before the actual wedding date – they only got engaged on Dec 31st 2012!

This meant only close family & friends and of course, myself, were lucky enough to be part of this wonderful day!

The day started at Becky’s house – I arrived earlier so as not to miss the wedding car arriving, but also to sneak in a few bridal prep shots beforehand!

The ceremony was a lovely little affair @ Preston Registry Office, which overlooks the beautiful grounds of Avenham Park, where we made our way

for some group shots after.

Unfortunately we had been slightly mislead as to the number of steps down to the park, so, as not every one could make it, we were keen to move onto

the reception venue.

The sun was shining bright when everyone arrived, so before the speeches began we finished off the group shots in a beautiful little wooded area near

the reception venue.

The whole day was lovely from start to finish and I was pleased I was asked to be part of the day.

Below are some of my favourites from the day.

Bridal | Boudoir Photoshoot | Pammy & Abbie | Hazlewood Castle | May 2013

Bridal | Boudoir Photoshoot | Pammy & Abbie | Hazlewood Castle | May 2013

BRIDAL | BOUDOIR PHOTOSHOOT | PAMMY & ABBIE | HAZLEWOOD CASTLE, YORK | MAY 2013

The other day I was heading down the M62 to a photoshoot at Hazlewood Castle, York, in pouring rain, thinking well this is definitely going to be a

‘indoor’ shoot today!

Now luckily we had a bridal boudoir session planned for the morning, so everything was ok ’til lunch anyway!

As you can see from the images below the ‘bride’ certainly looks stunning in this boudoir shoot.

(*For anymore information regarding a bridal boudoir session please contact me).

Anyway, after lunch, the rain left, the sun came out & as it’s May & the flowers are actually blooming, it left us with numerous places to visit with

beautiful vibrant colours!!

I was lucky enough to go back to Hazlewood a few weeks later to capture some more images incorporating the wonderful colours that are throughout the beautiful grounds.

London Photoshoot | April 2013

LONDON PHOTOSHOOT | APRIL 2013

I’ve been very lucky over the past few months to have photographed, trained & learnt from many great wedding photographers.

However, of all the places I’ve been to I must admit, although not a ‘city’ fan I loved photographing in & the images produced from London the other

month.

London has a wealth of beautiful & amazing places to photograph, and with a bride & groom its all the better!

Here are a few of my favourites from a few very long & late days in the capital.

Maria & Rick | St John The Baptist Church | Bretherton | The Villa | Wrea Green | March 21st 2013

Maria & Rick | St John The Baptist Church | Bretherton | The Villa | Wrea Green | March 21st 2013

MARIA & RICK | ST JOHN THE BAPTIST CHURCH | BRETHERTON | THE VILLA | WREA GREEN | MARCH 21ST 2013

 

I was lucky enough to photograph the wedding of Maria & Rick a few weeks ago.

As I already knew the couple I was very honoured that they asked me to do so.

The wedding ceremony was at a lovely little church on the outskirts of Leyland, St John the Baptist church in Bretherton.

The reception was held in Wrea Green at The Villa.

Both venues complemented the couple brilliantly, helped even more by the gorgeous vintage style dress Maria was wearing on the day, and all

finishing with something a little different, in the form of break-dancers after the last dance!

Below are some of the images from this wonderful, if a little windy, day!

URBAN PHOTOSHOOT | LEEDS | OCTOBER 2012

My second photo shoot was a pshoot with Chris Chambers (& haven’t left his courses alone since! ha ).

I was interested in how to photograph weddings in all environments, which is initially what drew me to the course.

It was an early start in Leeds city centre for a urban wedding bride & groom photo shoot & I must say I enjoyed every minute!

Here’s a few to start from a building near the train station – went for some portraits of the ‘bride’ & ‘groom’ in this location.

Then headed off to numerous locations in Leeds to shoot some more urban style wedding photoshoot ideas! 😉

I travelled down to Coleshill for a 3 day training course, with “The Trained Eye” in September.

2 days were spent on marketing & editing, in a classroom, but the day everyone was waiting for was the photoshoot day, which included 2 venues in &

around the Coleshill area.
