Adam and Katrina get married

Last weekend’s wedding was with Adam and Katrin and the beautiful Tithe Barn near Petersfield. A popular venue for us for over 10 years so we know it very well and love it a lot too 😍  Beautiful barn and over the years the grounds are becoming beautiful to thanks to the caring and dedicated team their.

We started our day at a local hotel with Katrina and the girls, to be honest, it was all a bit crazy, haha but we managed to calm things a little and grab some beautiful details and preparation shots as well as a few of the bridesmaids and those 2 crazy little flower girls ❤️

After an hour or so we headed off to the Tithe Barn to meet with Adam and the boys, Just our usual photos which help keep the boys happy and a few more barn details before Katrina arrived being driven by her dad in his swanky BMW.  Into see the 2 registrars then a couple of photos before the beautiful walk to get married.  This driveway is one of my favourite features of the barn and always makes for lovely photos. We often use this for portraits too because it looks so different during the year. Katrina, Dad and the bridesmaids made their way up to the barn and into a crowded ceremony room. The 2 flower girls who previously were running around singing were just perfect 😇😇 and it made for the most amazing bridal entrance.  A pretty perfect ceremony and then we were all ushered out into the sunshine.  I’ve not mentioned the weather yet! well after a pretty perfect but very hot Friday, this morning’s weather was sunny but much cooler thanks to a pretty strong wind, This, of course, brings its own problems but it was dry and sunny and pretty glorious.

Our into the gardens and lots and lots of hugs and kisses and photos. It really was perfect timing too, Sunshine, drinks and very happy people in a beautiful location.  It soon became clear that Sue and I knew lots of people here too, how funny, some from Newborn shoots, some from weddings and some from family connections, small world.

We found a nice sheltered spot for the family groups and then took Adam and Katrina off for some beautiful portraits and of course confetti before being called into dinner, This started with a single speech from the Best man, well more of an intro really, no speeches today so very relaxed.  After dinner, the guests were invited back outside for Desert 🍦 A beautiful vintage caravan which was converted into an ice cream van, brilliant idea, super scrummy ice cream and a brilliant way to finish the meal.

A few lawn games and for us a few portraits with the bridesmaids made the time fly by Before we knew it we were asked back inside to cut the cake and first dance. Both were perfect and brought our day to a finish. A long but very enjoyable day with amazing people.

Thanks guys for a superb wedding X

Corporate shoot for the Corporate giants

For the past few months, we have been talking to the manager from K & B Concrete Crushers about a corporate project to get some photography for their new website and marketing materials. K & B are a huge company and this was a fun and very interesting job for us.  After lots of discussions between K & B and their marketing people, they decided on Luggershaw for the shoot and they chose a glorious day last week.

We started our day by getting decked out in the latest safety clothing and had a safety site chat which was interesting. We then headed to the machinery. I never knew there was so much to crushing concrete, massive machinery and lots of it.

We took lots of photos in lots of scenarios including me up in a cherry picker to get some great aerial shots. The weather was cracking and just perfect although very warm.

An unusual shoot for us but very enjoyable.

Our corporate photography rates start from as little as £200.00 or £75.00 for headshot including images delivered within 48 hours or sooner if needed.

Holly and Matt’s wonderful wedding day

Last week we joined Holly and Matt for their beautiful wedding day at New Place in Shirrel Heath which is a very popular wedding venue for us.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING DAY WITH AWESOME PEOPLE ❤️

Holly and Matt were recommended to us by Kimberley and Andrew who’s wedding we shot as well as their growing family too 🙂 We were actually already booked for Holly and Matt’s chosen date but on finding this out they changed their date so that we could join them, No pressure there then 😄

We started our day with Holly and the girls at home for some lovely relaxed prep shots and lots of beautiful details and of course getting to know everyone properly, before heading off to St Johns Church in Warsash to meet the boys for a few shots before the ceremony, Once there we were greeted by the vicar, again a fantastic vicar which set the pace for a superb ceremony and we were not disappointed. It was a beautiful service and a perfect start for Matt and Holly.

Outside we spilled into the sunshine for some hugs and kisses photos and then confetti before leaving for New Place, I did remember to thank the vicar for a “proper good service” he replied, “Thanks, Jules, I proper enjoyed it too” 😍 made me happy.

Once at New place, we headed almost straight into the family groups because it was windy and the weather could have been changeable, to be fair it stayed nice and I found a beautiful sheltered spot for the formals.  Afterwards, we took Matt and Holly for a walk for some portraits which just about worked out perfect for the guests being called into dinner.

After dinner and a few more portraits, we had the speeches, short and sharp and very much to the point, perfect in fact, a few tears and a few giggles.  Out into the bar whilst the band setup ready for a fun evening.

Sue and I photographed the cake cutting then into the dancing and a few dances before saying our goodbyes. A top day with amazing people again and in a beautiful venue.

Thanks everyone for such a wonderful day with you all ❤️

7 day old twins come to babyjp

A couple of weeks ago I had a call from a new mummy asking me about newborn twin photos, I asked when they were due and she said they were born a couple days ago 😍 I was amazed she was able to call me after a couple days with twins, but she did and we booked a shoot.

On the shoot day the twins were only 7 days old but at almost full term they were just like any other newborns, 1 slightly larger than the other so although still to be named we could easily tell them apart. Well you know what I mean 😄

We started our shoot with the smallest twin who was a lot easier to settle and then gradually introduced the larger twin, We then spent the next hour or so swapping and changing the twins around before there big brother Bobby arrived to join us. We then took some adorable sibling pictures with 2-year-old Bobby.

We had so much fun and Mum and Dad sort of got a rest too 🙂 I hope you love these as much as we all do.

Here are a few photos from this wonderful Newborn-shoot I hope you enjoy and love them as much as we do and look forward to your comments,

Beautiful wedding with Alex and Becky

On Saturday we joined Alex and Becky for their wedding in the beautiful New Forest at the Bartley Lodge Hotel. It has been a favourite venue of ours for a long time so we were both excited about this day.  We met Alex and Becky when we photographed her sister’s wedding back in 2015, “Ian and Laura’s big day” This was also an amazing day so we had plenty to be excited about. Alex is also now one of my cycling buddies and will be joining my cycling club very soon which is also pretty exciting stuff.

We started our day with Becky and the girls at Dad’s house in Wellow, Once again a lovely peaceful vibe and whilst the girls got ready the bubbles flowed and Sue and I got to work. Lots of beautiful details and preparation shots and with almost every shutter click the weather got brighter and better until all we could see were blue skies.

Sue and I then headed off to Bartley Lodge to meet with Alex and the boys, a few fun shots and a few more details and we were happy and waiting for our beautiful bride. Becky arrived a few minutes later in a truly stunning VW camper “sleepy Jean” supplied by our friends at “Vinnies Vintage Vehicles”  I love when our clients get creative with their wedding transport. 😃 A few photos then into the ceremony for a lovely wedding with probably the most emotional reading from Alex’s Mum, Sue that I have ever hear, Beautiful and heartfelt.

Afterwards, we spilt out into the gardens and the sunshine for a lovely hour enjoying the day, Sue and I took some beautiful photos before heading off with Alex and Becky for a few photos in the New Forest with the Camper. Then back to the family groups and in for the wedding breakfast which started with the speeches. 3 really lovely speeches and then dinner.  Afterwards, we headed back outside for a couple more photos before being called in to cut the cake, just after we were dancing and shortly after that our day came to a close.

I was pretty excited to get home and upload the photos today, sure enough, there were some crackers so after a few facebook teasers Sue and I headed off to bed, tired and very happy.

Another absolutely wonderful wedding with amazing people. I hope you enjoy these taster photos that I hope will keep you going until Alex and Becky return from South Africa.

Thank you, everyone, for making this such an amazing day
