Today, I had a great time shooting the pre wedding shoot for Ste and Claire. I’m shooting their wedding later this year. I’ve got a quick sneak for you, this is the location of their first kiss together. There is some disagreement about who made the first moveThis is in Runcorn, Cheshire, where Ste and Claire met and live. We also headed to Carden Park, where the wedding will be.

Well 2011, it’s now behind us. It was a year with ups and downs…I chose to shoot a few less weddings this year as we moved house (which happened later than we hoped), but I also ended up with 4 cancelled weddings
On the happy side, I did make some amazing new friends in 2011, and caught up with some old ones.I also Photographed some fantastic weddings. I truly, am blessed to be able to do what I do. At the end of 2011, I also managed to find some space to set up my studio gear – so expect to see quite a bit more of that over the next few months.

Hey guys, I’ve not posted much of late as I have been letting the review and competition run it’s course.
A bit of information has been going round lately from iCAN (nowt to do with the folks at Apple I don’t think), regarding photography and photographers.
It appears that trading standards have been getting a number of complaints lately regarding photography, which is a shame as we all then get tarred with the same brush as it were.
I pride myself with being honest with people, and not hiding pricing or charges from people, and I know this sometimes makes me appear to be more expensive than some other people, and it has lost me some work…..but I can sleep at night
Anyway here is the message…pass it round to people, make sure they don’t fall for it.
iCAN MESSAGE FOR MEMBERS
After a number of recent complaints Warrington & Halton Trading Standards service are warning residents to show caution when dealing with photographic studios or people offering photo shoots. The complaints that have been received range from people who have been hit by unexpected charges, through to those who are unhappy with the service that has been provided. Trading Standards would like to offer the following advice:
Don’t be tempted to do business with photographic studios who call you out of the blue. If you are considering having photos taken, be sure to shop around and seek recommendations from friends and relatives.
Make sure that you know who you are dealing with and do not pass on your bank details unless you are convinced of the legitimacy of who you are dealing with.
Be fully aware of any terms and conditions that are attached to agreements for a shoot. Trading Standards have information about people who have cancelled appointments only to find that amounts of money have been removed from their bank accounts at a later stage.
Confirm what any photographs will cost before the shoot. Some consumers have expressed shock at the amount of money that they have been expected to part with for photographs. This seems to particularly be the case where the initial shoot has been offered for free, or at a reduced rate.
Warrington & Halton Trading Standards would urge consumers to exercise the usual caution when dealing with photographic companies as they would with other traders. If you have any concerns please call Consumer Direct on 08454 04 05 06.
And to leave you on a good note, he is a picture of Josh doing some creative work the other morning.
Meet Louise and Issac
Louise and Issac are getting married July 11th at Carden Hall. In the heart of the Cheshire countryside, it makes the perfect venue for weddings, and makes life pretty easy for the photographer.
I met up with them today so we could have a walk round the venue, and photograph their engagement shoot.
We had a walk round the hotel and found air hockey
Issac is a wee bit competitive – I think Louise looks more than a little scared to be playing against him.
We then went on a little walk round the grounds of the hotel, looks like there are so many awesome places to shoot.
I told you Issac was competitive right?
