Essex wedding photographer – Joss and Charlotte tie the knot !

This weekend saw Sue and I travel up to Essex to join Jonathan (Joss) and Charlotte for their wedding, we met with Joss and Charlotte after shooting a wedding at Gaynes Park in Essex last year, Sue and I shoot 2 or 3 weddings each year in Essex so its not unusual for us because we never charge extra for travel and always enjoy the challenge of new venues like Channels. We travelled up to Essex after a corporate shoot on Friday and stayed at a lovely Premier Inn so that we woke fresh on Saturday and did not have the M25 to deal with,  Saturday morning after an amazing breakfast we headed off to Leigh-on-Sea to meet Charlotte at Mums house, wow it was manic 🙂  but so much fun, we had already met Mum and Dad so we all had a great couple of hours doing some lovely prep shots including some gorgeous shoes and meeting lots  more lovely family members before heading off to meet with Joss and the boys at the pub.

For those of you that know the Broadway in Leigh-on-Sea you will know the parking is not easy 🙂  so we left a little earlier to park and its a good job we did, we then headed into the Sarah Moore pub with the boys for some relaxed fun shots and caught up with the Arsenal-Chealsea game. We then headed the 500 yards to the beautiful church where we met the very obliging Father Keneth !  Charlotte arrived to a fan fair of whistles and cheers from the local kids which was nice and then into the church she went for an emotionally charged hour. We then headed off in convoy with them to their venue which was Channels Golf Club  they had a few car issues on route and we did think we would have to resort to the Mini at one point but after some careful coaxing the vintage car poodled into Channels looking as fresh as a daisy and the fun continued.

We had A quick whizz around in a golf buggy and then some portraits before the family photos where the lovely flower girl Amber entertained us all with her smile, then into the most yummy roast beef dinner and then some very emotional speeches which had the room in tears and then laughter thanks to Dad for “warming the room up” Joss for making his beautiful bride tearful and the best men for keeping it real 🙂  We then had a break before cutting the beautiful Tiffany blue cake and then into first dance at which point Sue and I said our goodbye’s and started our long trek home buzzing after what had been a very long but very rewarding wedding with some fab people.

Thanks to Charlottes Mum and Dad for looking after us so well, everyone else for being so much fun and Joss and Char for just being amazing x

Southampton portrait photographer – Wilf :-)

A few weeks ago our client and friend Libby who’s wedding we shot a few years ago brought her little lad Wilf into the studio for a shoot, Libby wanted a large canvas headshot in Black and White and chose the first photo here,  Sue and I loved it so much that we ordered the colour version for ourselves,  which do you prefer?  This is the second shoot with Wilf, we were lucky enough to photograph him as a baby too,  you can see that shoot here,  I just love these growing stories 🙂

Here are a few from the shoot,

Southampton portrait photographer – 4 Generations and the story continues…..

Sue and I have always loved our studio and our studio work, this is why 🙂

We met Kevin and Verity a couple of years ago (actually I met Kevin in 1989 when he sold me a car lol small world)  when we photographed their son William as you will see in the first 2 photographs here, we had lots of connections with Kevin and Verity including the lovely Gemma Patch who’s wedding we have shot as well as her children and Emma Llewellyn who’s wedding we also shot.

Then just recently Verity brought her beautiful 2 week old daughter Lily-Grace along for a Baby jp newborn photoshoot which was amazing, our Baby jp newborns are all about the pureness of babies and photography, why not take a look here at our Baby jp website and our Baby jp Facebook page both full of our amazing Hampshire Newborn Photos which we are sure you will love.

We then met Verity and Kev a few weeks later for the family shoot which consisted of 4 generations and was amazing, we had such a fun time and its what makes our work so special,  We also photographed Lilly-Grace for her first passport 🙂

I hope you enjoy these photos and please leave a message below.

This morning Sue and I headed off to the Chilworth Science park to photograph the CEO and CTO Andrew and Adam of i2owater a local company that specialise in an integrated system that minimises leakage and burst frequency by remote. i2owater are being featured in the Sunday Times so needed a few updated photographs of them, their products and premises.

Sue and I love our corporate work and always have a little fun whilst working at these places.
