Rob & Rebecca are getting married at The Daffodil Hotel Grasmere Cumbria in five weeks time so we all met up for a pre wedding photoshoot. We met Rebecca about three years ago when we photographed the wedding of her sister, MaryBeth, to Julian. So it was wonderful to hear from the family again now it is Rebecca’s turn! Like many couples they had a certain level of nervous expectation of wedding photography so we think this pre wedding phtoshoot really helped. In fact Rebecca sent the following email ‘Photos are amazing! Thank you, we really love them. Need to get them up on the laptop to have a proper look but very impressed, thank you so much.’Read More»
Chris and Sharon opted for a pre-wedding photography shoot in Manchester so we arranged to meet them in the really cool Hilton Hotel on Deansgate. It is many years since we have been into this part of Manchester and much has changed so it was a case of walking down streets and looking for great places to photograph. Quite a change from taking wedding and pre wedding photographs in the Lake District!Read More»
This photoshoot at Linthwaite Hotel Windermere Cumbria was a commercial project for the Hotel to advertise their new Hot Tub bedroom. I have only included one of those images as the Linthwaite Hotel will be using some on their own website and brochures. Whilst we were there though we took the opportunity to produce some images for Louise, our model, for use in her own portfolio. This was the first time she has taken part in a professional photoshoot and she was a star!Read More»
This is just a small selection from the family portrait photoshoot we did with the Stevenson family a little while ago. They did not want anything too formal, just a record of enjoying themselves whilst they were all together in one place. I don’t know whether it is me but it seems that families are forgetting to get these moments recorded as they all grow up, and that is a real shame. When a family has a pictorial record of all of their members growing up through each stage of their life it is priceless. None of us can go back in time can we! The days of all sitting or standing in a row and saying ‘cheese’ have gone. We have the ability today to capture moments. So this shoot was done for the Mum of the three sisters and they presented her with a lovely Photobook at the end of it. We all live in a world surrounded by technology but I think it is a good thing occasionally to remember that the ‘older’ things, like family albums, can bring hours of fun and satisfaction.Read More»
