Engagement shoots and why we include them in our packages

Sue and I have always believed that the more we get to know our couples, the better the photos will be, that’s why we have always offered a pre wedding shoot included in every one of our packages and this has proved to be a great idea over the years.

We meet most of our couples either here in our studio or at their wedding venue for a shoot as well as a coffee, we also meet our couples for a pre wedding chat again here or at the venue, by the time we have done this we are like pals and it makes the day run so much smoother.

Its simple really, the more work Sue and I put in up front,  the better the wedding photos,  is there any surprise that we both adore our job 🙂

Here are a few photos and we think you will agree that the connection between our couples and us is a good one, we also think this is very rare,

Scroll to the bottom to see what our couples do with their photos.

Operation update

Ok don’t worry I am not going into all the gooey details 🙂

Some of you know that I had an operation scheduled for sometime in February to have my Umbilical Hernia corrected,  I know I hear ya, isn’t that a children’s complaint 🙂  well yes it is but like most things with me I try t be a little different. here is how I discovered the hernia.

Since loosing some weight and falling in love with my fitness regime again I noticed a little lump in my tummy button so mentioned it to my Dr who explained what it was, well it got worse and worse so I asked for the corrective operation but explaining that it would have to be before our weddings started in March,  he laughed and said we don’t operate by appointment 🙂   Off I went to see the surgeon for a chat and thankfully he was cool with the wedding thing so offered me feb 14th,  I thought great that won’t even mess with our valentine shoots 🙂  somebody was looking after me.

anyway last week the hernia started causing me problems and started to strangulate so on my Dr’s advice I called the surgeon and he offered to do the op last Friday,   I went into the RHS Care hospital in Southampton at 7am and had the most amazing experience,  great nurses staff and Dr’s and the best surgeon that I could wish for and I was finished and ready to leave by noon,

Funny thing is the anaesthesiologist or anaesthetists as we call them recognised me 🙂  we was a keen photographer and whilst I was in recovery we chatted about photography and I even got asked for a card from one of the nurses getting married in December,  Thanks Paul,  now that would make a great blog story wouldn’t it !

anyway I am back home for a couple days now and feeling good, a little sore but thats to be expected,  I am thankful to the staff at the RHS for the amazing care and very grateful for Jeanette for moving her shoot from friday to Thursday and for Thea and Andy for moving there long standing e-shoot from saturday to next month,  other than that it won’t interfere with work which I am so thankful for.

Thanks to you all for the lovely messages and to my good pal ChefGary for the food 🙂

Lastly,  don’t worry there are no goorie photographs coming,  Sue is a bit squeamish !

Love to you all,  Jules
