Confetti Fun

A few wide angle confetti shots, over the years.

Up close to the action with a wide angle lens - filling the frame.  My preferred way of getting this shot, hope you like them.

Photography Gift Cards

With Christmas around the corner why not treat yourself, your mother, siblings, partner or friend to a gift card.  Mums get yourselves in front of the camera instead of behind it. Sooner or later your children will want photographs of you and what will they find.


Early 2020 Church ceremony

Fortunately this ceremony went ahead before all the Coronavirus restrictions came in. On subsequent weddings, guests had to wear face masks.

Christmas Wedding - Hanley Town Hall:

With the registry office nearby to a  fun fair in full flow, it would have been rude not to take full advantage of the photographic opportunities :)

Black and White or Colour?

shooting scenes with clutter.

Black and white images helps to remove distractions and clutter that may be present and are are more noticeable in colour   This effect is particularly useful for me with the photography of the brides final preparations.  

For example the image here shows distracting elements, an iron, ironing board and television, however,  in black and white their impact is reduced and allows the viewer to concentrate on the intended subject, the bride and her helpers

Moddershall Oaks Wedding Photography

I have been lucky enough to photograph several weddings at the beautiful wedding venue Moddershall Oaks,  being such a wonderful location should be enough for me but I have the bonus of living no more than 3 miles away, so it's really convenient   This latest visit was for the wedding of Stephanie and Lee on the 9th of June 2018

I had been booked for 5 hours, so Sandra and I stayed up to the wedding breakfast when we went home, returning a couple of hours later after the speeches, to capture the cutting of the cake and the first dance.

I can't afford to be quite so flexible at most venues, but if you are getting married at Moddershall Oaks I can usually split the coverage on the day to suit your budget if required.

Six reasons to purchase a wedding album or folio box.

The first look an American trend.

"The First Look" - 5 minutes before the ceremony - Kristiana and Tony

Like many things that start in America the "First Look" crossed the Atlantic and arrived in Blighty some five years ago, ten years after it first appeared in the U.S.  

For couples who want to see each other before the ceremony this affords their photographer the opportunity to capture photographs that document the emotion of the moment in a sequence of images.

 That is not to say that similar emotion cannot be seen when couples first make eye contact in the aisle of the church.  Although non-traditional and not for everyone, for a number of brides who wish to see their groom in advance of the ceremony, this provides another option.

The couple booked me for 3 hours, the minimum time I offer. However, this gave me time to photograph the couple arriving,  the ceremony and still have time for some shots in Brampton park located adjacent to the venue.
