    Great natural framing of the couple in the wall opening, especially with the dappled autumn light in the landscape black and white image. Looks like a fabulous wedding location with many creative opportunities.ReplyCancel

Pre-Wedding Shoot – Nicola & Ferdeen – Islington Town Hall & Smithys

This is probably a little different intro to the usual wedding pre-shoot I post… but bear with me! …I’m sure other brides to be will find it useful & perhaps other aspiring photographers out there too? Nicola only contacted me a few months ago – about their forthcoming wedding this December 2010! …So not typical […]

    Hi Ben,
    Hope all is well. I’ve sent out very similar emails to clients to explain to them the challenges that winter weddings can present and why the chap who can offer all day coverage for £400 might not be the ideal choice. I also never give out quotes over the phone anymore – I always like to put my prices into context and explain all the effort and expertise that’s involved. I love the images above (in the style popularised by Damien Lovegrove). Are you using the new PocketWizards (miniTT1 & flexTT5) with your Speedlights?
    All the best,

    Lovely set of pictures, I like the dinning room best the artwork and bride have made for a great image, but I do like your use of Speedlight’s/flash on the outside images too.ReplyCancel

Pre-Wedding Shoot – Alex & Alfie – Birling Manor & Beachy Head

I’m not sure where to begin with this one really – there’s so much I want to say! …well I suppose at the beginning would be a good start! I knew I was going to have a good pre-shoot session when Alex mentioned in an email that Alfie wants to wear his cow suit his […]

Pre-Wedding Shoot – Kelly & James – Woodhall Manor, Woodbridge

A few weeks ago I met up with the lovely Kelly & James again for their pre-shoot at the stunning Woodhall Manor in Woodbridge, Suffolk. I first met Kelly & James… back in 2009 when Kelly knocked on my hotel door and handed me her diamond earrings!!  …no I haven’t got a penchant for diamond […]
