Laura & Luke Dolan

Luke & Laura Dolan This summer’s morning started out perfectly with a few clouds and warm sunshine, firstly we met the Bride at Essebourne Manor to photograph her and her bridal party getting ready. Which was fun, we dissipated any nerves by including the guests in the photography and getting them to participate in helping with the photography as well as capturing the more candid side of them all getting ready. We then went on to meet the groom and his groomsmen at ST Thomas Church in Smannell . a quaint little church on the edge of Andover , where the Groomsmen met at The Oak Pub  just a stone’s throw away to get rid of any pre wedding nerves. The Men looked ver...

Mo & Shaunagh

What a start to the day, I knew this wasnt going to be any ordinary wedding day from the start. I have known a few of the Bridesmaids and the Bride and Groom for a while now so shooting in front of them comes easier as no one is feeling awkward with me and the camera.

Jan & Steve Engagement Shoot

It was a bright but cloudy Sunday morning arriving in Charlton Lakes Andover at 10.00 am. Charlton Lakes is so easy to use as it has the most wonderful backdrops and the willows are amazing, The lakes are so still and the reflections look wonderful. I meet Jan and Steve who are very nervous, We havent done any Photography work  together yet so they dont really know what to expect and their nerves show by chatting lots and laughing lots.

I try to put them at ease with my fun loving but relaxe...

Steph & Vince Wedding Highfield Park Hotel Hook Hampshire

I arrived at the Highfield Park Hotel to find Steph in large curlers and her dressing gown. great look ! The Bridesmaids and the Bride were all in a pre-bridal room getting their hair and makeup done. Steph was very nervous indeed and needed a moment or two throughout the morning to calm her nerves. We were soon moving into the bridal suite and started to take pre- wedding photographs of the bridal party. The room is small but lovely and all goes smoothly. Before we know it Vince the Groom and his Groomsmen arrive at the venue, (we get to know Carls name, one of the two bestmen within minutes as he is such a character!). I knew these men were going to mak...
