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.

A few weeks back, I had a fun shoot with Kate, Rich and Bindi the Leonberger. Kate breeds dogs, and also runs a dog grooming business, so it was nice to have one of her babies along for the shoot. It did mean that Bindi’s brother Harli, their mum Kimba, Luna and Khan, all Leonbergers, Tilly, Tara, Tinker and Nemo the four Shih tzu’s and Bella the Bernese Mountain Dog all had to stay at home. I’m really not sure Chester could have handled that many doggies at once.
It was great to meet Kate and Rich, as they’d booked me via email. When I saw them walking up with Bindi, I remember thinking, that is one BIG dog. It turns out that Bindi is only 8 months old, so really still a pup, Kate and Rich had recently discovered that Bindi was a littler nervous when at a show by herself. They were using the shoot as a chance to get her out to a busy city, so she could get used to people.
Kate and Rich are getting married at Plas Isaf in Corwen, which looks like a fab place for their big day.
We had a lot of fun during the ehsoot, it’s clear that Kate and Rich’s North Wales Wedding is going to be lots of fun to photograph, even if Kate did start the day a little camera shy.
A few weeks back, I had a wonderful afternoon with Julia and Paul, who had come up from that there fancy London, to see family and have their engagement shoot. They decided on Tatton Park, which is always a wonderful place to visit, and a fantastic place to photograph.
I will be photographing their wedding in a few months time, in Alsager, then Nantwich, and I’m really looking forward to it.
I really enjoy eShoots, as they are nice and relaxed, they allow me to get to know the couple, and they get to see how I work. This really helps nervous models, to relax in front of the camera. It also means that I can capture more natural shots on their wedding day, as they are not worried about the guy with the camera wandering around snapping away.
Anyway, onto the images from the day. I hope you enjoy.
Today, I had the pleasure of meeting up with Julia and Paul, for a pre wedding shoot. We had a nice wander around Tatton Park, and took some pictures of them. Here is one of my favourites from the day.
Wowsers, this post has been difficult to get to you guys. Some lovely person decided to HACK my webserver!!!! so it’s been a slow process sorting everything and testing, and tweaking settings (Thank You Geo for doing this!)
The other Saturday I met up with Alison and Matthew for their Eshoot (also known as a Pre Wedding Shoot). Alison and Matthew decided on Ness Gardens as the location, after the Sun over the past week, this overcast day almost felt like a let down, until you realise that us photographers love natures Softbox, the sky becomes this beautiful giant soft light, meaning no harsh shadows, no squinting.
We took a little walk around the gardens, just chatting to start with as I find this helps people relax, especially if their not used to being in front of the camera – in fact Alison is used to being behind the camera, and we generally don’t do as well on the other side of the lens, but Alison nailed it!
Alison and Matthew were a bit nervous, although, there really was no need. People sometimes forget, that photographers really want you to look good, unless you have a daft personality, we don’t want you to look daft. This makes us look bad
We got chatting about how they met at a local pub, Matthew watching football, seeing Alison and suddenly forgetting anything else, and about how romantic Matt, proposed in the Lake District. These guys really are a sweet couple, who fit so well together.
I’m pretty sure this is going to be a fun wedding!
This was also my first couple shoot with the new camera….oh my, I LOVE IT!
