This goes back a few weeks now. So I’d better post this before the weather goes all nice and this starts looking out of place. Gemma hates having her photo taken…so this was a quick, ‘getting to know you’ session to kind of ease her over the ‘trauma’ of it all. I think it worked. You’ll see more of Gemma and Pete in early May.
A few weeks back I got the chance to meet up again with Alex and Simon. Their civil partnership is coming up in June at Eltham Palace. A wonderful venue I can’t wait to get back to. These guys have a real eye for detail so I can’t wait to see what they come up with in styling the wedding. I’m guessing there may be a few more ‘details’ than normal with this one.
There are some more on my Facebook Business Page.
A wee frolic through the wildes of Liss last night. Something a bit different to come on this one later on (like next week most likely).
You knew it would happen. After nearly two weeks of sunshine and warm weather, the day of my latest (pr)e-shoot and it rains….A LOT! Nevermind, when life deals you a lemon, make lemonade…then add a bit of Southern Comfort to it and you’re mint. It seemed to do little damped the spirits (geddit) of Mills and Ben. Here are few of me faves.
All in all its just another brick in the wall
Crown and Anchor
Scully and Mulder
OAP Friday (revisited)
Hallway du Vin
Another quick client meeting. This time with Lorna and Charlie who booked me from Singapore. After we dispensed with the details I offered them one of 15 minute turbo sessions. Just a laugh and chance to see what I get up to on a wedding day. Most clients get worried about this (although champagne often quells any concerns) but its nice to say “that’s it guys…nothing more complex than that”. So, with all of us dressed for a day at the beach we buzzed through 3 locations in 15 minutes chatting along the way.
OK…strictly speaking this ISN’T engagement photography. A proper engagement shoot would be about 1.5 to 2 hours…so 12 minutes hardly constitutes an engagement session. But 12 minutes is what we had and 12 minutes is what we did. It was kind of cool to see what we could get in a limited time span…especially considering they had only just met me for the first time. Normally, on a wedding day, both bride and groom are used to be photographed either through preparations or the ceremony or etc etc. So to turn up, how you doing and shoot is pretty daunting.
BTW, this was shot at a new venue (well, 3 years old) called Cherkley Court. Sorry, the building isn’t 3 years old…its really old, but its in its third season as a wedding and events venues. Pretty sweet!
The sun was at it worst…directly overhead…but I got some stuff I was pleased with.
Couldn’t decide which one I liked best…so here are two. Amazed at how much brighter the reflection is compared to the actual subjects
What was funny about this room is that its just a passage way. The coordinator thought I was made to use it…but there was a viewing going on in the rest of the house. So Lin…whatcha reckon?
