Worcestershire Glamour Make over / Boudoir Shoot Feedback

Hello there,

Very quick post today as its Mothers day and I am running to the store to get Mrs P something nice to cook for dinner.

Yesterday I had a fabulous make over shoot and got some fantastic feedback from Miss T – this coincided with some more feedback from a couple of boudoir shoots – so thought I would share a few with you.

Hey Dp


I had a great time, and am amazed by the pics

I am more than happy for you to put the top photo on your blog – I will show the clothed one at work too, I am sure that there are some girls who will be interested.

Thank you again for yesterday, it was a fabulous experience and I can’t wait to see the rest of the shots on Friday!

I have had my first Boudoir photo shoot with David and it really was fantastic, i was a little nervous at first but david made me feel so comfortable with his friendly and happy personality i soon felt at ease. David is a perfectionist with everything from the lighting to positioning of the model and he will get the best shots he can making you just look fantastic.
Hair and makeup was done by the lovely gemma, we discussed hair and makeup ideas before the shoot so i knew what to expect on the day and also having input with my ideas was really great to. I have now received all of my photos from the shoot and i just can not believe just how great they all are i am very happy, with thanks to david.


Photo of the Week – March 18th 2012

Hello there,

This weeks photo of the week comes from a wedding I shot last summer, the wedding took place at the Amazing Gosfield Hall in Essex and was the wedding of Alex and Lisa.

The couple had wanted some of my off camera flash images, ones where you create a little bit of magic by mixing flash light with sun light and take a photo that normally would not be captured.

I have also included another one from when the bridesmaids walked down the aisle just because I love the lighting on that one also, often those kinds of photos are overlooked but so important.

Hampton Manor Wedding Photography

Warwickshire Wedding Photography

Hello there,

For one reason or another I have had a bit of a lost day, site issues and total lost of communications with the outside world let me working on images and albums – I am currently putting the finishing touches to a spectacular wedding album from a wedding at Hampton Manor, and that reminded me that I also worked with another photographer at a wedding just before Christmas.  I was second shooting (its what we photographers call it when your just helping out really)  for a good friend and great photographer called Paul Goode – I was lighting assistance for this one, with it being a winter wedding and my penchant for off camera flash lighting etc I was there just in case Paul needed any help – I had a rare weekend off so just went along for a bit of a relax really – its funny but when not shooting weddings for clients, lots of photographers will go along with other photographer just to pratice something they cant really do at a paid wedding – if it works out well the couple get some great photos, if not, they were not really expecting them.

My goals for the day were to

1.  Assist Paul however he needed em.

2.  Pratice Panorama’s – this is where you take several photos and join them together to make one seamless photo

3.  Just shoot some funky off camera flash / video light images with the B&G

4.  Pratice shooting in general in LOW light conditions.

So here is what I got.

This is a 6 shot Panno – if you look carefully you can see 3 walls in the room – this is one of the dining rooms in the Hotel

The hotel has the most amazing light in reception, well just behind the reception, finding something to do with it and a couple so the couple dont look miniscule in photo was a bit of a challange but I had been waiting a long time for this and had it planned out.

The couple had beautiful candles all over the place, I collected a whole bunch and used them to light this shot – I added a bit of video light just to lift the details a bit but love this one

and while we are talking about black and white images,

I snapped these two shots seconds apart, I did this while Paul was setting up for a photo, I just used the window light coming in, for the bride I wanted it nice and soft but for the groom I wanted something a little more edgy

and here is a shot taken during the wedding itself, if this does not mean anything to you dont worry but it was VERY dark – this shot was taken at ISO 5000, 1/30th second @ F2.8  I was standing at the back of the room using a very long zoom lens to get up close and personal.  When Paul and I were discussing who would stand where, as it was his wedding I let him choose but secretly wanted the back of the room – I have shot enough weddings to know if your by yourself, the place to be is the back of the room – so when Paul said he would go up front I was jumping for joy on the inside 🙂

and last but not least, a couple of shots of the venue itself, this is a back view of the venue

Oxwich Bay Wedding Photography – Engagement Session Kay and Andi

Hey there,

In a few weeks I will be shooting what sounds like an amazing wedding which will end with a mini fish and chip supper on the beach at the fabulous Oxwich Bay Hotel on The Gower in West Wales.

Several weeks ago I popped down there to meet up with Kay and Andi for a day on the beach – in the shelter it was a fabulous day, hot even but as we got close to the coast it was pretty windy hence the windswept look !

We parked over a mile away and hiked thru sand dunes and over rocks to the coast – this gave me lots of time to really get to know Kay and Andi and talk thru their wedding day so we have everything planned for the big day itself.

Here are a few photos from the day.
