Laura and Danny 10 years on…..

10 Years ago we travelled to Selbourne Hampshire to photograph Laura and Dan’s wedding day and we had the most amazing day, you can check out our very old blog post HERE

A few weeks ago we joined Laura, Dan and their 3 beautiful children for a 10 year photo shoot and we had a blast, the boys generally tried to kill me with all their shenanigans but it was just like being 10 again running through the forest and nettles. The shoot was again near to the wedding location where Laura and her family now live so we took a few in the garden and then the woods. We spent a lovely hour with them and got some gorgeous photos too.

We offer great rates and even better for returning clients so why not message me below for details and start your own beautiful family album which you can add to each year and then in years to come you can sit down with the grand children and family and look back through the years.  Our studio is a professional studio with air conditioning, private parking and changing and bathroom facilities,  its not our home but we like to make it yours during your shoot.

Sue and I photograph hundreds of portraits every year and I am very proud to say we always get the results we want, we have very much an unhurried approach to our studio work, we often sit down for a coffee with our clients before the shoot and let the kids play on the background with our toys, this make the parents relaxed and the children comfortable and it gives us cracking smiley photos. The difference between us and a high street studio with a strict time limit is immeasurable because unlike them we never rush a shoot. We believe if people are comfortable and happy in our studio then they will come back again and again and its proved to work 🙂

It also helps that we both LOVE what we do………..

We are running some very special portrait offers at the moment so if your looking for photos of yourself or your  a couple or a family please take a look because I am sure you will find something that will interest you

Cheryl, Andrew, the boys and the legos

On Saturday we joined Andrew and Cheryl for their beautiful and very elegant wedding at Beaulieu Abbey and the Montague Arms in the New Forest.

I started my day surprising with an 05:30 40 mile cycle ride to Beaulieu, I often do this no matter where the wedding is but todays ride was a little odd because it was dark when I started and I could not get my head around why 🙂 it was early to be fair haha. Anyway as I reached Nursling it was raining and rained all the way to Beaulieu and back and was generally naff. Thankfully that was then end of the rain and the day just got better and better for Andrew and Cheryl.

We started our work day with Cheryl and the gals about 10:30 over at their home in Park Gate for some beautiful and seriously elegant details which was lovely. We took lots of beautiful shots and got to know the important people too which makes so much difference to our day.

We then headed off the 30 or so minutes to Beaulieu and once parked at the Montague Arms we had a quick lunch and then walked over to the Abbey to meet Andrew and the lads for some fun shots with the boys. Cheryl has a “thing” about horse droppings so there was a “special wedding shovel” to hand to clear the path and this did make a fun journey a little later. After shots with the boys and the arriving guests we waited for Cheryl to arrive in a beautiful Rolls Royce and then we were whisked into church for an absolutely amazing ceremony, it always in at the Abbey because its such an awesome building especially  bearing in mind it was never built as an Abbey or Church.

Afterwards we all spilled out into the gourds where Pimms and drinks were served, we have done this a few times at the church and it makes for a lovely occasion and really brings the church into the photos. We also did the family photos at the church which again was perfect and meant the next part of the wedding day would be more relaxed for the guests.

We then walked to the Montague Arms led by Cheryl and Andrews Son’s Alistair and Samuel whoo were on “shovel duty” and took it very seriously there was poo flying everywhere haha.

Back at the Montague arms we had a couple of fun hours photographing the guests enjoying themselves and the beautiful weather, a couple more groups and the couple photos before we headed into room details and then the most amazing wedding breakfast. Sue and I often get invited to join our couples and depending on when it is we sometimes do and today worked out just perfect because I had no race the next day 🙂 I am so pleased coz we had a lovely mean and an awesome table too.

Speeches. WOW fob and groom were both good, short and sweet and just as needed but then Alistair and Samuel who were also the best men came in to action. Alistair for the speech and Samuel for the toast. I am not kidding or exaggerating when I sat thus was close to being my favourite best man speed EVER, absolutely amazing and not a dry eye…..

Afterwards back out into the fading sunshine whilst the band setup and then into the cake cut and first dance which despite the tight room was a beautiful choreographed number that everyone enjoyed. Strictly come dancing voting and applause finished the dance which is pretty much when we said our goodbyes.

Absolutely TOP day guys we loved it. X

Here are a few photos from this wonderful wedding I hope you enjoy and love them as much as we do and look forward to your comments and seeing you again soon,

Laura and Dan get married

On Saturday we joined Laura and Dan for their wedding at Audleys Wood near basingstoke on yet another beautiful July Saturday so we spent most of the day enjoying the beautiful Audleys wood gardens and grounds.  We started our day with Laura and the girls in one of the suites for some lovely peroration shots and lots of beautiful details. This is always a great way for us to start our wedding days because we get to know the bridesmaids and often Mum too so it helps with our relaxed approach so much.

After wards we headed off for a few shots with Dan and the boys, A few of the lads were held up in traffic so we just concentrated on Dan and the Best Man and did the rest afterwards.

The ceremony was just lovely, I love the ceremony room at Audleys Wood because it has space and light and is very comfortable. A reading or 2 later and we were all ushered out into the sunshine. Almost straight away we headed to the shade because it was honestly unbearable for those dressed up but it was just perfect. A few mingling shots, the family groups and some portraits of the couple all done in perfect time thanks to awesome people.

We then headed inside to the Air Conditioned (thankfully) reception room for dinner followed by speeches.  Afterwards we setup our funtime fotos and spent an hour having sone fun before the evening started with cake cutting and first dance.

All in all a pretty perfect wedding. 10/10 on all counts, maybe a little to hot but hey it will be raining next week so we really cant complain about that can we haha.

O and Dan’s lovely Mum absolutely loved cyclists so we got on like a house on fire 😀

Thanks guys for a lovely wedding day X

Graduation shoot

Last week we met with Stacey and her friends at their Graduation in Southampton to take a few photos to help celebrate their awesome achievement.

We took a lovely selection in glorious sunshine with the girls and their families too.

We also do a lot of these in the studio too.

We offer great rates and even better for returning clients so why not message me below for details and start your own beautiful family album which you can add to each year and then in years to come you can sit down with the grand children and family and look back through the years.  Our studio is a professional studio with air conditioning, private parking and changing and bathroom facilities,  its not our home but we like to make it yours during your shoot.

Dave, Emma and Tom

Back in 2010 we photographed David and Emma’s wedding at the beautiful and very popular Cain Manor and we had the most amazing day with them and their lovely families. We have since photographed them several times which is a huge honour because they come down from Surrey and its quite a trip.

A couple weeks ago Emma said she wanted another shoot but this time a location shoot to make the most of our “5 days of Summer” so between us we chose a venue from a few I had shortlisted and Sue headed off for our shoot to meet Dave, Emma and toddler Tom.

We had the most amazing day for it and a while lot of fun interacting with Tom who was a delight. We laughed, walked and took some gorgeous photos too. We choose our locations because of there facilities as well as backgrounds because its important to be able to head to the loo with children as well as grab a coffee 🙂 so we are always aware of this.

We offer some fantastic rates on location shoots so please get in touch.
