Commercial shoot for Tingdene

Recent posts

Pets!

In the UK we are a nation of animal-lovers, and as such I get a lot people booking me for a photoshoot -  not for them - but for their beloved pet!



And why not?!  We spend a lot of time with them so why not have a few professional photos of them looking their best?

I have photographed many different animals, from rabbits up to horse, and can do studio shoots (for the smaller ones!) or come to your home or another location for an outdoor photoshoot.





Get in touch through the website to enquire about booking a place for your pet.

Wedding at Rise Hall - Jemima and Garreth

One of this summer's highlights was photographing the wedding of Jemima and Garreth.  I had already done a family shoot with them and their twin babies, plus I had photographed her sister's wedding the year before, so they knew me well and how easy-going and relaxed I made them feel - important if you are already  bit nervous about having your photo taken!

I got there as hair and makeup were being done, and the rooms they had for their preparations were spacious, beautiful and had lovely light from the windows, which makes things that little bit easier!

I managed to track down groom Garreth for a quick set of portraits before he was whisked away to see the registrar, then on to the ceremony room, with the adjoining doors opened up to increase the capacity, and it was still standing room only at the back!

We were tightly packed at the front as well, so was shoulder-to-shoulder with videographer Sam from Blink Video during the ceremony.  Then we were let out into the main room fo…

Helen and Andrew's wedding album

I enjoyed photographing this wedding so much!  Such a chilled-out lovely couple - lots of smiles and always up for a few more photos here and there throughout their special day, in July this year at Tickton Grange.  And now I can present them with their finished wedding album by Graphistudio, all the way from Italy!





They chose a light blue leatherette for the cover (a first for me!) which went with their colour scheme.  With dozens of colours to choose from, even in the standard ranges, it is a hard decision to make! 


As well as adding the USB of all the digital images from the day, they got the canvas, which is included in my top wedding packages.



They chose one of my favourites (though I have many from that day) - a silhouette shot from later in the afternoon.


Louise and Josh - Pre-wedding / engagement photoshoot

We are building up to summer wedding season, so have been meeting up with the couples who are getting married soon.  I first met Josh and Louise when I was photographing her friend's wedding back in early 2017.  In fact she was a bridesmaid, so she had chance to see me at work from the bridal preparations through to the evening.


Like most couples, they were a little bit camera-shy, but we soon got into the swing of things, exploring the different garden areas of Willerby Manor Hotel on a sunny Sunday morning.





We talked about the things they liked and things to watch out for (we all know we pull funny faces sometimes!) and had some fun, in fact the shoot lasted longer than usual - we were having such a great time!

May was such a busy month for making albums!  Some of my wedding clients have been unusually keen to get their photos all laid out and printed.  Normally most people take a while to relax and think of anything but weddings, but just lately they've been on it (and why not?)!
Rachael and Danny were married at Hallmark hotel in Ferriby at the end of April and had their online  photos to view within a week (my usual target!) but they'd chosen their album selection within a month!
They went for a landscape format 30x20cm book (part of my standard wedding photography packages) finished in a smooth light brown "cappuccino" colour faux leather.
