After photographing Jas and Tani's Proposal in Harborne a week or so before, they joined me in a foray around my favourite part of town - The Jewellery Quarter. There's a new place to discover every time I set out with my camera. There also seems to be a new pub every time too, not that I'm complaining. Jas and Tani are also big fans of Jewellery Quarter and the grimy, industrial backdrop juxtaposed perfectly against this gorgeous pair. We took an amble down to the canal with
During our initial meeting, Lisa and Steve explained to me that they were after some really relaxed, candid photography on their wedding day and weren't too keen on any formal, posed photographs. After hearing this, I knew we'd be a good fit and I felt confident that I would be able to use my soft, documentary approach to its fullest. On the day of the wedding, I met Lisa in one of The Ardens hotel rooms, whereby I was greeted by a merry bridal party, all whizzing around with
I get excited by all of my work. I love what I do, I'm so lucky. What makes it really nice is when a couple really 'get' what you do and enjoy the ride with you. I shot Laura and Adams Birmingham wedding with the very talented Darren Gair Photography. He blew me away with his contribution, as always. Infact, it was Adam saying 'You two are the dogs b****cks' whilst we were working on their couples portraits at The Plough and Harrow that gave that extra reassurance that it was
Last weekend I had my first wedding fayre of the Autumn. I came away feeling exhilarated and even more enthusiastic about wedding photography than I was before. This was because of the connection that I shared with those few people that stopped by for a chat.
Not everybody was interested. Infact a good chunk of people passed me by. I just wasn't what they were looking for and that was absolutely fine.
I've come to realise that its those whom REALLY looked at my photos, t
Recently, I wrote to you about the importance of printing your photos, if you missed it you can catch the blog post here. You will know that all of my photography packages come with permission to print and an online gallery, should you wish to order your prints through me. However, I just wanted to share these wonderful extras with you.
Over the last year, I have invested more time than I probably should have scouring the world wide web to find the right wedding album desi
On the 15th and 16th September I had the opportunity to photograph Randy Fenoli's one off visit to the UK at New Hall, Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham. The event was organised by The Wedding Bells of Four Oaks and I had the pleasure of working with Nicola from Daffodil Waves Photography, documenting his talk with both brides and other wedding industry professionals.
Randy's TV programme 'Say Yes to The Dress' is huge in the States and currently airs on Sky's TLC over here. It
At the beginning of August, I had an amazing opportunity to photograph with Simon Brettell for Ellie and Jack's Italian themed wedding. The wedding took place at Birmingham Register Office and then a second ceremony and reception at The Bond Company, Digbeth. I started off with Jack, his groomsmen and his cat at their home in Yardley Wood, then met up with Ellie and the rest of their wedding party at Birmingham Register Office. I sensed from the get go that this was going to
Sarah and Chris' intimate wedding took place in the beautiful Slaughters Country Inn over in the Cotswolds. Theirs was one of the most emotional ceremonies I have ever had the pleasure to witness. I managed to hold back my tears for the ceremony (a few escaped) and had a lovely time with their close family and friends enjoying the afternoon sunshine in the hotel grounds. Sarah's beautiful dress was made by Annasul-Y from Grafton Manor Bridal and the delicious nude cake was cr
What a beautiful wedding. Love and friendship at every corner. Laughter, tears, celebration and style pouring out at the Birmingham REP. Being such an international affair, the selection of friends and family each bought not only a selection of languages, but also the gift of love from around the world - what an amazing mix. When we initially met to discuss wedding photos, the couple just wanted candid photos. No posing, just lots of happines and joy. I knew we would be a goo
