Engagement shoot with Rich and Jess

Earlier this week we had planned to meet with Rich and Jess in the New Forest for their Engagement shoot but on Sunday morning it was tipping down with rain so I called to ask wether they wanted to continue or reschedule,  Sue and I are always happy to work and shoot in the rain because our pro cameras are waterproof as are we 🙂  but Rich said he thought we should crack on with our afternoon meeting so we did.  Thankfully the weather was much improved, still stormy but I like that because we had a mixture of blue skies and clouds but it stayed dry.

We decided on Rhinefield house for the location because we had the option of a coffee whilst we chatted about wedding plans, Rich and Jess are getting married in Romsey Abbey in August so it was good to get the timings sorted.

We had a lovely shoot and got some beautiful photographs although to be fair it would be hard not to with this fun couple. I am really looking forward to the wedding day but for now here are a few little tasters.

Matthew aged 14 days visits babyjp photography.

Last week we had a call from Sophie to say that she would like a newborn shoot but had left it a little late because Matthew was already 12 days old but thankfully we had a space a couple of days later and managed to offer them a shoot and thank goodness we were able because Matthew was just about perfect for our shoot and we had an awesome time.

After we got Matthew off to sleep we stared our shoot with a few new props and backgrounds and thanks to our new background support system we were able to change it 4 times which gave us a wonderful choice of photos.

We have just added 3 new background sets and a whole range of new props to the Babyjp studio and next week we have another delivery of bespoke blankets so we are forever tweaking and changing things which keeps everything fresh for us and for you.

Tesco afternoon tea event

Most of you already know that Sue and I do quite a bit of work corporate work for some local and national companies and we love it, its so varied and every time we get a call we never really know what we will be photographing or teaching next. We do lots locally for Tesco and we love it, most are store or event launches and almost every one involves Tesco giving to charity, I call Tesco the unsung heroes of the charity world because they give so much.

Last week we had a shoot down in Bournemouth again and this time there was no opening or launch it was just Tesco sating thank you to its community by offering 3 wonderful food hampers to 3 lovely afternoon tea clubs for the elderly.  Sue and I went along to meet the lovely residents and it was so much fun sharing a cuppa and having a natter with them.

Tesco gave a wonderful selection of cakes, coffee and tea as well as the lovely hampers to them and they were most grateful and enjoyed most of it whilst we were there.

We met with James the Tuckton Express Tesco store manager and his deputy assistant who we recently met at their store opening.

Here are a couple of photos from our afternoon tea with Tesco.

Our corporate photography rates start from as little as £150.00 including images delivered within 48 hours or sooner if needed.

One-2-One workshop at marwell with pat

Earlier this week we ran one of our One-2-One workshops up at Marwell for Pat who had recently purchased her first proper camera and also has a very special birthed coming up so hear lovely family purchased her one of our workshop days.  We know Pat’s daughter Anna so it was all very lovely when we met Pat.  We started our day at the studio going over camera settings which is an important part of the day because it means when we got to Marwell with Pat we were able to get straight into the photography well after a spot of lunch of course 🙂

Once we arrived we had lunch in the Graze cafe and then headed off in the opposite direction around the park which we always do because we start our photography with the Owl’s who are quite difficult to photograph because they are in very dark cages and we have to make the wire disappear and we are shooting into the light but all great challenges after the mornings talks.  We then follow the park round and photograph whatever animals are about, thankfully there were lots today.

Pat took some lovely photos with her Canon Rebel and 70-300 is lens and we all had a lovely day.

Please check out our workshop website below as well as the workshops we offer, Every photo taken on our workshop website was taken by our clients. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us here 02380 767084   julianporter@mac.com    or txt  07720325336

Charlotte and Dan’s wonderful wedding reception

A couple of weeks ago we joined Charlotte and Dan for their wedding reception at Horton Heath golf club and although its rare for us just to cover this part of the wedding day, it was with good reason,  Charlotte and Dan were lucky enough to get married on St Lucia a couple of weeks before and this evening was a family and friends reception which saw 200 or so fun people enjoying the wonderful evening.

We started our evening at around 7pm with a few details shots whilst we waited for the guests to arrive and have a few drinks, we started to take our relaxed informal photos as well as a few family groups and a few groups of friends which all in all made for a wonderful collection.  We then photographed the wonderful cake cutting which was actually a very artistic collection of cheeses and the speech that Dan and Charlotte did to thank everyone for coming.

We then moved onto the first Dance which was fun followed by some serious dance moves 🙂  The evening carried on through until midnight with a fab Dj, a steel drum band and roulette tables and lots and lots of dancing.  It was not long before the clock chimed 12 and we got ready to head off home but before we did we grabbed a couple of shots outside just to finish the album.

A fab night with fab people and a perfect way to celebrate their wedding day.
