Lydia & David.....Rock The Frock

After a really busy few weeks including the National Photography Awards in Newcastle which Jane & I were very kindly invited by Spicer Hallfield the UK largest album manufacturer & even though I was unlucky this time my good friend Paul Wilkinson from buckinghamshire who we were with was awarded Parent & Child photographer of the year.
Anyway gave me some new ideas for next years awards & this brings me on to the Eagerly awaited Rock The Frock with Dave & Lydia.I have been waiting to use this location for a wedding shoot for years & as soon as Lydia said she was up for something different I knew I had just the place.

Hope you like have posted my faves for you.

Thanks to you both for braving the elements.Great shots & alot of interest in the images already.D.

Wedding Ideas Magazine

We have had the honour of one of our weddings being published in the latest edition of Wedding Ideas Magazine. Its Mark & Elaine’s great wedding that was held at Wrightington Hotel earlier in the year.I was a bit like a kid with a new toy when I found out.YIPEE!!! ahem sorry!

Baby Ella.....Gorgeous!!!

By far the majority of the portraits I shoot are in the studio & I suppose this is what many people seem to think a professional portrait session is like but its such a shame more people dont go for a more creative option like location portraits.Yes its more work for myself but the images are truly stunning & different.I had the privilege recently of shooting Baby Ella for her first Pro photo sitting & decided to shoot at her home.I love this type of shoot because when you choose the locations for the shoot the parents always look at me & politely say Yeah,no problem but in the back of their mind & with the look on their faces you know they dont quite see what I see but never the less trust my decision.I shot loads of beautiful images on this shoot but the 2 below are going into the awards next year.Hope you like.

Talking of awards both Jane & myself are off to Newcastle this weekend for the National Professional Photography awards,my regular viewers will remember my recent success at the North West awards & this put us in the Nationals so fingers crossed again.

Steve & Louise's Wedding (revisited....)

Its always the best part of my job to finally show the Bride & Groom their finished wedding album.Steve & Louise were married in May with the images posted on the blog & the finished album arrived for collection so I thought Id show it (off!!) to you.For our future Bride & Grooms the album is our Celebration Book with the images both full page & behind overlays

Thanks for the privilege of being at your wedding.I love the front cover,its one of my favourite images of the year.

The Big Match!!

They say love conquers all & this must be the case when Rebecca & Marc decided to marry on the same day as the Liverpool V Man Utd game(Marc being a LFC fanatic) but this day had everything, a result for Marc’s beloved Liverpool,a personal letter from Colleen Rooney to Rebecca, sunshine & the Liverpool Utd match referee meeting & greeting them.
