Contemporary Children's Photography - Introducing Evan

Its always nice to photograph children, I love the fact of will they or won't they??? and at the end of the shoot they alway deliver the shots that we want, as was the case with Evan when he came in for his portrait. As a parent we all want photographs of our kids laughing, smiling and generally looking happy but as a photographer I LOVE images that make you think... whats he thinking? as your drawn into the image with Evans piercing eyes. Saying that he's probably thinking... who is this idiot behind the camera. We offer Studio & Location portraits, Interested? then get in touch. D&J xx

Briars Hall Wedding Photography - Stuart & Laura

Briars Hall Wedding Photography - Stuart & Laura's Wedding 

One of the joys of being a Wedding Photographer is I am blessed to meet some wonderful people in this industry & Laura is one of these people. Laura for years has organised weddings and it was a privilege to capture all the fun & love at her wedding. Our coverage started when a rather calm Groom Stuart arrived at Briars Hall with his Bestman & family but when he saw Laura for the first time a few tears were shed. Laura looked radiant and enjoyed for once being the bride and as she has done for countless others the day ran like clockwork, even the weather was on our side with a lovely sunny day. Great speeches ended our coverage of a fabulous wedding and it was great to see Stuart & Laura laughing with their families & friends, south a wonderful day for a wonderful couple Thanks again to Stuart & Laura for their fab hospitality and allowing us to be their Briars Hall Wedding Photographer. If you would like details regarding our Wedding Photography services then please get in touch. D&J xx

Lumley Castle Wedding Photography - Martin & Jane

Lumley Castle Wedding Photography - Martin & Jane's Wedding 

I have to say I am so glad Martin & Jane booked us as their Lumley Castle Wedding Photographers, it really is a stunning Durham Wedding Venue.We arrived the evening before and had a stroll around the castle with Martin & Jane it was obvious that their wedding was going to be special and it really was. The weather had been iffy to say the least but on the wedding day it was dry, bit err windy but dry:). Jane joined Jane (so many Jane's) as she was getting ready & I grabbed a few shots of a rather calm Martin & his best man before the ceremony in the stunning waterford room. As the guests chatted we managed to grab a few shots in & around the castle, this venue has wonderful lighting you can really get some great atmospheric shots. The meal was served in the sumptuous Barons Hall a wonderful setting for a wedding. Dad gave a very emotional speech as did Martin & his best man... ok his best man just destroyed Martin but it was emotional :). Lumley Castle is as stunning at night as it is during the day & we were lucky the weather held off so we could get some shots around the castle all lit up. I love first dances and a really nice touch is when Jane had a dance with her Dad, who by now had relaxed and really enjoyed himself and if that wasn't enough a serenade by Janes Brother just to add that little bit more emotion into a wonderfully emotional,fun wedding. This really was a great day and as we left for our 3 1/2 hour journey home we had a smile on our face and some great images to share with you....... enjoy

From Martin & Jane.... Thank you so much for capturing our special day. You were both brilliant & helped us stay calm and relaxed.

Thanks again for everything, Martin & Jane We LOVE Lumley Castle and if you need an experienced Lumley Castle Wedding photographer then please get in touch, we would love to photograph a wedding at
