Wedding Photography Engagement Session

An Engagement Shoot

Sara & Karl at Freshwater East, Pembrokeshire, West Wales

Hey guys, David Purslow here from www.davidpurslow.com – Wedding and Portrait photographer covering the whole of the UK.

About a month ago (I am a little behind as its full on wedding season at the moment) I had the great pleasure of meeting up with Sara and Karl for their pre wedding engagement shoot.  We arranged to meet at Freshwater East, a stunning photo location on the west coast of Wales.

The whole shoot lasted around an hour but we CRANKED out some seriously good photos (at least in my humble opinion)

The purpose of the shoot was to put together a guest signing book (If you have not seen one of these then check out my albums page by clicking here)

Below is a selection of some of the pages from the shoot.

The beach was not as empty as it looks, I airbrushed a lot of people and dogs off the beach – I love the feel of Sara and Karl’s engagement album it could easily be any beach in the world.

Hope you like,

The idea is simple, plenty of white space for guests to write messages of love to the happy couple.

Enjoy,

New Product ! – Framed Collage Prints

Hi everyone,

Just a very quickie today,  I had a fabulous wedding on Saturday and will be posting pictures in a few days, then Yesterday I was at the Wedding Fayre at the Hotel Plas Hyfryd in Narberth where I unveiled my latest offering.

I chose the Plas to unveil it as the pictures were from last weekend (10 days ago now) wedding of Barry and Becci, Barry runs the Plas so it seemed the perfect wedding to use for the show piece.

As you can see, this version if the later of the two I will be offering.  The Finished size of this piece is 51 inches by 41 inches and the photo is 30 inches by 40 inches.  This version has 65 photos in it.

I will also be offering a smaller version with 50 photos, this version will be 20×30 inch print in a 30 x 40 inch frame when finished.

There will be a selection of contemporary and traditional frames available and all are printed, mounted and framed by a professional framer not by me 🙂 – its too much work for me to do that.

The 20×30 inch mounted print (30×40) inch frame will cost £495.00

Late availability wedding photography

July Wedding Photography

Late Availability

Today Nikki and took the decision to cancel our 3 week holiday to The United States.  Since Soukie is turning 1 this months, we had booked up to make a surprise visit to the States for the most of July and drop in a  our friends from over there.

We had closed availability to the whole of July however due to the Volcano in Iceland and the travel chaos it has caused and the reports on the news this this could be going on all year we thought it best to stay over here this year and go visiting next year.  I would feel really really bad if we got stranded in the States as August is my busiest month of weddings and letting down couples is not worth the risk.

What this means is that if your suddenly stuck for a wedding photographer for July and think its too late to find one, I have lots of late availability wedding photography dates open in July.

I have also been redoing my website over from top to bottom – you can see my whole new website by visiting my site at www.davidpurslow.com

I specialize in Wedding photography for Birmingham, wedding photography in Worcestershire, Wedding photography in Gloucestershire and wedding photography in the West Midlands.

Before our move to the Midlands in February this year we had lived in Pembrokeshire West Wales and as such we have lots of places to stay so we love photographing wedding in Pembrokeshire.

Please visit my website for more details, complete price information, to check availability or to view my portfolio.

Take care,

Ciao

Sami & Matt’s Engagment Shoot

Sami & Matt’s Engagement Session

A Fun Family Day at the Beach !

Hi there guys, dp here from David Purslow Photography – if you post via a search engine then can I highly recommend you visit my wedding photography website located at www.davidpurslow.com

A little while back I had the pleasure of shooting (in the nicest possible way) Sami and Matt’s engagement session – I am sure Sami will jump up and down when she reads that her wedding is very fast approaching.    Sami and Matt seem to have booked me as their wedding photographer years ago, I am not sure if it was in 2009 or 2008 but it was a very long time indeed.  The reason I say this is when they booked me I was not offering signing books……

Whats a signing book – well its a beautiful wedding album that is printed on fine art paper that you can write on, the basic idea is you put together a collection of nice romantic photos from your engagement session into a presentation with lots of white space around the pages and then people can write you a message in the white space.

I have one I use as a demo album and I get brides who’s weddings I have shot to write in them or couples who have booked me to pop a few words in there as to why they picked me to be their wedding photographer.  In this picture you can see what Sami and Matt wrote in my book after their engagement session.

If you want to see more pictures of my album styles just click on the photo above !

So back to Sami & Matts engagement session.

Well as I was saying I shot their engagement session and their wedding is fast approaching.  We finalized the signing book album design and I wanted to share it with you.

Signing books make for a GREAT talking piece but more than that they make for a FANTASTIC keep sake and a totally unique memory of your wedding day.  Just imagine lots of pages filled with comments from all your friends, family and loved ones.

So here it is – I cant show you the cover as currently its somewhere over the Atlantic on its way over to  – bet Sami is jumping up and down again 🙂

*** How to use the Slide show ***

  1. Click the play button – then a little menu pops up at the bottom of the slide show
  2. If you do nothing the show will start in about  a second or so – but for the full effect – at any time, just put your mouse over the slide show and……
  3. Click the icon second from the right hand side to view in FULL SCREEN MODE !!!!
  4. Pressing escape will bring you right back down to earth

….

I hope you enjoyed.

I recently moved to the West Midlands area and now provide wedding photography for Birmingham, Worcester, Solihull, Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Kidderminster and pretty much anywhere in the West Midlands.

I still shoot wedding in Pembrokeshire, West Wales and dont charge any extra for traveling !

Ciao

Storybook Album Cover – Martin and Keyleigh

Storybook Wedding Album Front Cover

A simple and elegant design

Hey guys, dp here from www.davidpurslow.com – Wedding and Portrait Photography for Birmingham, The West Midlands, Worcestershire and West Wales !!!

Just wanted to share this cover with you.

This is the cover of a beautiful wedding album that is off to the printers today.  The album is a story book wedding album and the cover will be a spectacular acrylic cover and will shine and be stunning.

The wedding was actually shot in West Wales for good friends of mine and it was great to see the whole family again – I think I have another wedding coming up in the same family in the next 12 months 🙂

The cover photo is one of the favorites of Martin and Keyleigh so it took a little designing to get it right, I like full page covers but since the album is a portrait album that opens up into a beautiful landscape album and the photo the guys chose was a landscape I could not do the full wrap.

Here is the cover, cant wait to see the finished album, its going to look amazing

I should have put a border on the picture for the web as the green (picked from the grass) colour fades to white as it cascades across the front of the album but on my background it kind of gets lost 🙁

Anyway hope you like it.

Ciao
