A Spring Wedding at The Belfry Hotel

A spring wedding at The Belfry Hotel, just, the perfect location! Eespite the poor weather leading up to the wedding day, the sun came out and shone, at what appeared to be, its most glorious!  This was a special day for Shane and Georgia and a wonderful day for family and friends.

Swallows Nest Barn Wedding

Swallows Nest Barn Wedding

Tom and Ewa had a Swallows Nest Barn wedding in the summer of this year. Coming out of months of lockdown this was the ideal venue.  A rustic barn with exposed beams and good ventilation held the civil ceremony and wedding breakfast.  Adjacent to this, there is an attractive, south-facing walled courtyard, with mature olive trees scattered about, which gave the guests a great backdrop to talk and interact.

Male Portraits – Shaun Lakha

Male Portraits – Shaun Lakha

Shooting male portraits requires a different approach to shooting women.  Shaun and I had a great time shooting this session in the studio a few months ago and captured some great images. Although the lighting setups are almost identical there are key posing rules to remember that make male portraits visually pop and impress.  I detail a few of these male posing tips here in this post.

A Spring Wedding at the New Cobden Hotel – Robert and Jackie

A spring wedding in April for Robert and Jackie came together wonderfully despite it being a month of showers and gales. 

My day began capturing the groom’s arrival at the Kingdom Hall along with his greeting guests and family.  Whatever warmth was lacking as regards the climate there was none missing among the happy smiles and meaningful  hugs!

I really enjoy pre-wedding shoots!  Here are the images for Liam and Estrianna at their reception venue, the wonderful Alrewas Hayes.  We had a great time meeting up and walking the location in preparation for their wedding day in the summer.  This modern, romantic venue in the country will contribute well to a memorable experience for them both.  Afterall there is so much to like here.

Anniversary Shoot in Digbeth, Birmingham – Shakiel and Hannah

Anniversary Shoot in Digbeth, Birmingham – Shakiel and Hannah

This anniversary shoot for Shakiel and Hannah was for their second year. Two years have absolutely flown by and it was good to have both Shakiel and Hannah in front of the camera again.  It was not as cold as on their wedding day, but we were all prepared just in case!  In the end, it was fine.  They both did their thing, which was great, especially in light of some challenges.

Couple Shoot Mailbox Birmingham | Abigail and Oscar

Couple Shoot Mailbox Birmingham | Abigail and Oscar

Couple Shoot Mailbox BIrmingham – The couple shoot for Abigail and Oscar took place early March on a wet, miserable Saturday afternoon.  Having set the date for their wedding later in the year, Abigail and Oscar were looking for images to commemorate their engagement.   Both had chosen canals and bridges as their preferred backdrop and as Birmingham is central for us, we thought the Mailbox and Brindley Place were ideal

Sunny and Manisha had an Indian Wedding at Ragley Hall. It was a fantastic day at the brilliant 17th century mansion in Alcester.  I had never shot here before and had never shot an Indian Wedding either, so I was really looking forward to the whole experience! I was not disappointed!

Sutton Park Family Lifestyle Session | The Halls | This is Family

In December I shot the Hall’s ‘this is FAMILY’ lifestyle session in Sutton Park. It was great fun. Wall art for their landing at home was what they wanted, and we had more than a few candidates by the end of the shoot.
Sutton Park
We feared the weather was going to be miserable, but it actually, was quite mild. We entered the park through the south entrance, Banners Gate and straight away loved the scenic elements.
