Surrey Family Shoot – Sarah & Daniel Epsom Downs Shoot – Sneak Peeks

Sarah, Daniel and Baby Maiya Family Shoot on Epsom Downs, Surrey – Sneak Peek

As much as I love photographing weddings, when I get a booking for a family shoot, I get really excited and when includes a beautiful baby it is even better. 

When we were discussing where to shoot, we decided that Epsom Downs was a great place, with the backdrop of either the grandstand or the downs that go on for miles, we knew it would be perfect. 

But the day belonged to the gorgeous Maiya, so I thought I would make this preview about her….

Berkshire Engagement Shoot – Katrina & Dominic – “A Month Today”

“A month today” !!!!

With 4 weeks to go until Katrina & Dominic’s wedding day, a notification on Facebook came up from Katrina with the quote “A Month Today”. So I thought this would be a great time to post the pictures from their Engagement Shoot a couple of weeks ago.

For the engagement shoot, we decided that I would travel to their beautiful cottage in the country village of Cookham in Berkshire, and what a spectacular view that caught my eye once I left the A4. Travelling up the winding road through the hills was amazing and I knew this was going to be a great shoot. 

Once I parked up and caught my breath from the gorgeous view, we decided that we would have a walk down the hillside towards the River Thames and maybe, just maybe, try some of the local beverages at the riverside drinking hole. 

Katrina & Dominic were amazing, not just for their photos, but being so cool when I stopped every 5 mins to comment on how beautiful the view was and how lucky they are to live and bring up their daughter here.

It was a beautiful summer late afternoon and the stroll down to the river was wonderful even the tricky slope we had to overcome to get to the bottom. Katrina & Dominic were so relaxed and we could have chatted all evening about their lives, how they got together, and what the plans are for their wedding day. 

So 28 days and counting, can’t wait…

Also on this shoot, I used my Mamiya Medium Format Camera to take a few images, and these are some of the scans I received back from UK Film Lab . Really happy with the results, and hopefully Katrina and Dominic are pleased xxx

‘Team Campbell’ got married at Oaks Farm – Sneak Peek

What a day I had yesterday!! I really laughed, I nearly cried, and I definitely did get wet in the torrential rain. But nothing was going to make Kelleigh & Jason’s big day be a washout.

“Thank you for all your hard work, Jay. J and I loved having you. Can’t wait to see the pictures.”

Once I got this message, I just had to ask if I could show a few sneak peek before they go on their Honeymoon, and Kelleigh was happy for me to

So here you are, a preview of  ‘Team Campbell’s’ Wedding.

London Engagement Shoot – A walk around Dulwich Park with Kelleigh & Jason

London Engagement Shoot – A walk around Dulwich Park with Kelleigh & Jason

Really can’t believe that 18 months has gone since I first met Kelleigh & Jason to discuss their wedding. With less than two weeks until their big day at Oaks Farm, Shirley in Surrey, we decided to meet up for a chat, a walk and of course some photos. We decided to meet up last Sunday in the gorgeous Dulwich Park, taking advantage of the beautiful surroundings, and we couldn’t resist a few shots and nice cup of tea, across the road in Dulwich Picture Gallery’s Gardens. Got to say, every time I meet up with these two, it is great. They were so relaxed and so easy to get on with and the best thing was that are really excited about me shooting their wedding (ok I added that bit in)!!!

For the second time, I shot Film alongside Digital. I really am loving using this method, and am getting more and more comfortable with shooting Portraiture on Film. Look out for the scans once I get them back from the Photography Labs.

Got to say thank you to Anneka for assisting me and cannot wait to work with you again on Kelleigh & Jason wedding day.

Berkshire Engagement Shoot – Sneak Peek

Berkshire Engagement Shoot – Sneak Peek My country walk with Katrina & Dominic

I have been very busy lately, so I haven’t had the chance to write about and show off the amazing things I have been up to.

 

So I thought I would share a sneak peek of a couple of Engagement/Pre Wedding Photo Shoots I have done in the last week.

 

The first sneak peek is from last week, where I travelled to the Berkshire Village of Cookham, which is situated close to the towns of Maidenhead and Marlow. Cookham Dean was where I met Katrina & Dominic, who are getting married in September in their local Church. When I say the country setting for us meeting and going for a walk & photo shoot was picturesque, that statement doesn’t do it justice. I  was in awe in the beauty of the Berkshire countryside, it was just like a postcard with the River Thames running right beside the village.  Really can’t wait to share some more images, but for now, here are a couple of images of the lovely couple.

Look forward to sharing more with you plus the scan of the films I shot alongside my digital.
