An Engagement Session in London Town

Last Saturday saw me going to London to meet Amanda and Ankit whose wedding I am shooting later this year.

We met near their house and they welcomed me in with a nice cup of tea and cuddles from Avi, their beautiful fur baby… I still regret not getting him into my bag!

Amanda and Ankit are having a small wedding in London in April before they jet off to India where they will have a bigger affair!  I only wish I was coming to that one as well!

You can really see the love between these two and I really cannot wait to their big day!

Here are some images we took.

Two Thousand and Fifteen

 

What an incredible year it was.

One of growth,  hard work and discovery.  All this lead me to start the year with a brand new blog.

I did 2 super inspirational workshops. The first back in June with the super talented Steve Gerrard.

It taught me  the importance of networking and I met some amazing photographers. I also took some of my favourite ever images on his hands on session.1.jpg  In late November I attended a workshop in Sussex with the incredible Jo Brown.

I learnt about finding my true theme and to translate that into my images. I also learnt it is ok that my work isn’t for everyone. To accept my style won’t suit every bride around and to be braver.  I came out feeling refreshed and inspired which is just what I needed!

It was also a year of travelling! I feel like I’ve been all over the shop and so incredibly grateful for it. I  went to Vegas for the first time ever in October and it was magical. It has since become one of my favourite places ever. I thought it woould be slightly seedy and just not for me, but it is dreamy. The light, the sights, all it has to offer aside of the gambling. If you haven’t been I absolutely recommend it. I would go there tomorrow if I could!!!

 

As if that wasn’t already incredible, I was then lucky enough to be taken to NYC for my birthday. It was amazing, the weather was lovely, and we did a hell of a lot in 2 days; as a result my legs and feet were almost dead for 2 days, but man it was worth it.

 

November saw me getting involved in a styled shoot for the wonderful Doily Days.

It was for their special issue which will be published in March, so I can’t share too many photos, but it was a fab day. Once again I got to meet some very talented people from the wedding industry and got to get creative, which is something I can’t get enough of.  You may spot to lovely Kelly from Truly Quirky Wedding Venues

 

On Halloween I shot what it is likely to be my most favourite couple’s shoot I have ever done. They won the competition I was running on the wedding fair I did in September with Quaint Queer Weird.

We took some smoke bombs to the woods and the results were lush!

 

It wasn’t all about weddings and couples in 2015,  I also had the privilege to shoot some wonderful families.

I love that the families who pick me let me do my thing, they don’t mind that what I suggest may make no sense at the time as they trust me to deliver some beautiful memories.

 

Here are some of my favourites.

I seriously can’t wait to see what 2016 has in store for me and all my clients past and new!
