Maternity Shoot

This is an area I have little experience in but was a wonderful opportunity to try very different posing. I not everyday I have to show off a bump! I also thought it was really important to show off just how beautiful she looked. Hopefully you think it has been achieved!

Black and White Model.

I think most people know me as a wedding photographer but I actually started out as a landscape photographer specializing in mountain photography before somehow, and I can’t really remember how I started working with models and dancers so it was lovely to go back to my roots so to speak and do a model portfolio shoot. I’ll upload a few more from this lovely shoot later but for now thought I’d add one of my favourites.

Black and White is really stunning for beauty photography. For those of a technical understanding  this was shot with a couple of flashguns (speedlights) and an 85mm lens at F 1.8. It produces a lovely shallow depth and a really creamy appearance to the skin.

Enjoy the photography.

Just one from a stunning North Wales Wedding

I really love this wedding photograph taken in North Wales at the beautiful Christ Church in Mostyn. It was taken on a very cold January morning with frost still on the path just as the bride and groom are leaving the gates of the church. The lens used was an ultra wide fish eye and shows the characteristic distortion of such a wide lens.

It is not a lens really recommended for wedding photography and needs to be used sparingly but can produce really unique images. It always on me at a wedding!Church, Wedding, North Wales, Photography, Artistic, Painting,

 

I think it looks like a painting with the stunning winters sky and the golden sunshine trying to break through even the grave stones look perfect!

I wonder if the wonderful Eric and Osian will hang it on the wall? Problem for them is they have a few to choose from. It such a pleasure delivering the images on the wedding day that they will treasure and their kids kids will admire.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog.

How better to leave your wedding ceremony than by horse and carriage? And Eccleston Village is such a beautiful backdrop to the mighty animals.

Katrina and Lee’s Wedding Photography at the Grosvenor Pulford in Cheshire

Back in August I had the pleasure of shooting the magnificent wedding of Katrina and Lee. They got married at the wonderful Pulford Church which is the last Church in Cheshire before crossing over into Wales. And the reception was just a hop skip and a jump away at the award winning and amazing Grosvenor Pulford Hotel and Spa.

I’ll start the blog with a few ‘fine art’ wedding photographs before starting in Chronological ¬†order of the day. And what a day it was. Enjoy and please feel free to leave comments.

Lets start with a stunning bride in a beautiful Church. Black and White has a certain dynamic that I love in Wedding Photography.

 

Church, Wedding, Photography, Pulford.

Pulford Church is one of the few establishments in Cheshire that will not allow any photography during the service, as luck would have it the Vicar does not mind photography after the service so we get to record the stunning interior of this magnificent building.

I think this is my favourite in the church, the beautiful Katrina in her stunning dress. The window light is gorgeous.

The stunning Katrina against a beautiful summer evening sky. The reflection in the water of the stunning oriental gardens of the Grosvenor Pulford just finish off the photograph perfectly.
