The best thing about moving to a new town, or country is meeting new people. If you can find a group of people that are as crazy and passionate as you are then I think your winning. So far I’ve met and had the of pleasure working with so many lovely florists, makeup artists, hair stylists, photographers and videographers in Hawkes Bay. This styled shoot was no exception, It was a collaboration of ideas from Myself, Makeup artist Bernadette and Florist Jackie all of which are based in Central Hawke’s Bay.
Massive thank you to our beautiful model Emma her beautiful (brown) horse Hank and loaned (white) horse Marama .
I have been busy meeting lots of my 2016 couples for mini pre wedding shoots recently. I wanted to share this particular one with you. . . .
Rachel & Thomas met me at the Deer Park near Milnthorpe a few weeks back. We knew the weather looked pretty miserable (actually this was one of the wettest pre wedding shoots I’ve done in a while!). But Rachel & Thomas didn’t mind, so we grabbed our wellies and went for a wander. These guys were so much fun, this shoot reminded me that whatever the weather, it is the people that make the photographs!
Amy contacted me a few weeks ago to see if we could do a couple of ‘bump’ photographs before the imminent arrival of their baby girl. We headed to Ruskin’s View, Kirkby Lonsdale, the same place where I shot their Wedding photographs two years before. It was heavy rain on the day that we arrange this but I’m so glad we didn’t postpone as baby Tessa arrived just hours after this shoot! Continue reading
Well what can I say. . . 2015 has been a pretty epic year for me. Weddings, Press and Commercial projects, they all made for an exciting, albeit chaotic year. I have had the pleasure of photographing in some beautiful venues across Cumbria, Lancashire, Yorkshire, Cheshire and beyond. Meeting some lovely couples and families along the way. I passed my NQJ in Photojournalism with distinction and was nominated for O2 North West Images of the year award.
I just want to say a massive thank you to everyone I have met and photographed over the past year.
Some weeks ago I met Hattie & Dan at Devils Bridge in Kirkby Lonsdale for a mini pre wedding shoot. I first met Dan a three years ago when I photographed his sisters wedding. It was the middle of October, I had him balanced on a chair in the garden holding the wedding dress so I could get a good shot of it!. . . I think he’s forgiven me. Super excited about their wedding in the next few weeks. Continue reading
I met up with Rachael and Andrew a few weeks before their wedding for a pre-wedding shoot. The weather was gorgeous so we wandered along the coast at Silverdale. It didn’t take long to see how happy these guys are together and at ease in front of the camera. I can’t wait to blog their wedding at The Wild Boar, Crook. Continue reading
Morning all, I’m up doing a spot of early morning wediting so thought I would stop and share some portraits I took of Holly recently. I wanted some really natural images so we had a wonder around the lanes and fields near Kirkby Lonsdale. Heres the result. Continue reading
Hazel & Ed are getting married tomorrow! A little while ago we met up for their engagement shoot. Hazel had a selection of places in mind that were symbolic to them. We started off at Mellor trig point where they used to hang out, then off to their old school gates and finally to Gisburn to find an archway where they had their very first kiss.
