An Extraordinary English Garden Wedding

Ladies and gentleman I would like to welcome you to Daisy and Phil’s extraordinary English garden wedding.  In fact there’s almost a secret garden aspect to this wedding.  Tucked away in the heart of Berkshire, after a series of long, wending lanes you arrive at an impossibly magical spot for …

my kind of image: wedding editorial

This week’s image is a little different in that it’s wedding editorial.  For anyone following my work it’s probably fairly apparent that, while I do see myself as a wedding photojournalist, I’m not a purist.  I think there’s a danger that as soon as you label something you define and …

An Impossibly Glamorous St Tropez Wedding

Even by the Cote d’Azur’s standards this St Tropez wedding has to be up there with the most glamorous its seen.  Certainly it’s pretty much the most glamorous I’ve seen.  This was a meeting of super happy Swedes on Viktoria’s side, all thrumming with that particular Scandinavian health, and crazily …

St Tropez Wedding — Sneak Peek

This weekend I had the huge pleasure of shooting Viktoria and Troy’s St Tropez wedding.  To say the day was stylish, glamorous and beautiful is a flat out crazy understatement.  It was head-spinningly stylish.  Gawpingly cartoon-eyes-popping-out-of-your-head-on-stalks glamorous.  Jaw thunked on the ground beautiful.  But at the same time you’d be …

Two London Weddings, One Couple | Al & Jesse

Today’s blog brings you two London weddings for the price of one.  That’s the reason there’s a fair number of images to pour through — because there were two ceremonies, two bridal preps and two dresses.  That maybe makes it sound a little ostentatious, but actually it was anything but.  …

my kind of image: alternative children’s photography

I suppose this week’s photo and discussion is a little more subjective and abstract than the previous My Kind of Image entries, and is more about image making.  I’ve titled this post Alternative Children’s Photography, but it’s perhaps that only in a loosely defined way itself.  Would you even classify …

My Kind of Image: The Groomsmen

So for this week’s image I thought I’d feature a groomsmen shot I took recently at a wedding at Orleans House Gallery in Twickenham.  The reason I’m looking at it here today is that, in terms of documentary wedding photography, group shots are tricky.  The very fact of getting people …

Destination Wedding Photography | Kalkan, Turkey

There’s something about destination wedding photography that gives the brain a bit of a spring clean.  It’s the different food, different sights, new surroundings.  Maybe the physical act of flying to the wedding.  Of course the sun and sea part doesn’t hurt either.  Another thing, fundamentally, as a photographer, is …

my kind of image: father of the bride

There are some photos that are just all about the moment, and this is one of them.  The father of the bride seeing his daughter in her wedding dress for the first time. I’ve included the next two shots to show you the embrace and because it’s important as a …
