I absolutely loved photographing Ronel and Johan. They were so much fun and we had such a great time on the beach that day. I took some of their photos in the late afternoon sunshine and we then sat on the beach and drank champagne whilst waiting for the sunset.
Working around a busy tourist city is never easy but it maks you look and find different angles at spots you may have missed. Working with my clients here at golden hour was perfect timing with the sun hitting the Lincoln memorial while allowing me to silhouette my clients! They absolutely loved how it turned out!
After years of promising to go to the aquarium together, graphic designer Mayur surprised pharmacy student Niki with "Will you marry me?" hidden inside a seashell! Of course she said yes! Niki and Mayur certainly weren't afraid to try new things on their engagement shoot. Seeing them walking along the edge of a parking deck shows you that they definitely know how to have a good time!
Rebecca & Rich's Wedding was wild - from start to end; action packed and heaps of fun. As Rebecca & Rich cut their cake, Rich popped open the champagne with a huge sword and passed it around.. Rebecca was determined to get every last drop :) Their celebration was fantastic day with amazing people - full of beautiful legitimate moments of fun and joy.
It rained non stop for Tara & Marks wedding at Carylon Bay in Cornwall, we managed to get a few photos around the hotel grounds during the day with umbrella's but I wanted to give them something special before leaving for the day, I set out onto the golf clubs green and set up my flash with my triggers, I did a couple test shots using my second shooter in the frame so I could get my settings right then the bride and groom came outside for us to fire off a few photos, we are really happy with how magical it came out with the rain drops being lit up like stars.
The wedding couple wanted something different during the shoot and took me with them to a kart track
They not only wanted the standard pictures in nature. And I was really surprised of the possibilities this location gave me.
Only a few lamps were burning and so we had to use the only light spot there was in the ceiling.
This couple was looking for fun and out of the ordinary locations for their pictures, and so we went to their athletics court. This idea was born quite quick as they were on their marks and set to get married!
Thanks Chris and Linda for having me as your photographer; this was fun.
This photo is taken with a very short and limited time.
As we head toward the ground floor to continue the shooting session at the next location, I do a simple set-up. This photo was taken in an elevator hallway, while waiting for the elevator door to open.
This Photo was made during the hindu ceremonies in the Netherlands. You will see the mother's bride give blessings to the bride, who is just sitting calm and a bit sad for leaving her parents home. You will also see the sadness on the mother's face who is hugged by familie.
It was a beautiful, happy, yet sad moment.
A totally incredible DIY wedding on the farm owned and ran by the couple! They had put these lights across the farm yard and I couldn't resist using them as leading lines, combined with the farm buildings, to create something very different and unique for their portraits.
This photo was taken during the engagement session for Alexa & Billy. He was a rower in college so it made sense to go to the lake where he spent so much time. I pulled out my drone to capture a few aerial photos during the session and loved all the negative space in this which lets you focus on the couple holding hand (no easy feat in this type of boat).
This bohemian beach inspired bridal shoot was so much fun with famous model and blogger Juli Proven. The setting is at Amara Cay resort in the beautiful Florida Keys. A Lavish Moment Event Design created the perfect decor and florals for her day. Her dress is by Island Bridal and Ciao Bella Salon and Spa of Islamorada provided hair and makeup. She is truly the pearl of the sea. Www.staciamorgan.com
Rachel & Elliott got married in Goring by Sea, they had an incredible convertible to take us to the reception. On the way they were in the back of the car and Rachel used her veil to hide her and Elliott from the wind - and I captured this beautiful moment!
This was one of the most wonderful and emotional weddings I have ever been to - so many laughs and tears of joy! Michelle + Giuseppe were married at Pembroke Lodge and 50% of their guests made the journey from Italy. Here, Michelle surprised her husband, Giuseppe and their guests with a speech in Italian.
My Bride in this wedding was extremely graceful and had this beautiful vibe of serenity and poise.
She was also a writer, had an amazing sense of aesthetic and an appreciation of art. I knew I wanted to capture that essence of her soul & immortalise that serenity, almost like a painting.
I'm tired of doing the typical picture of the group at the couple's house. For this reason I am always looking for original things, new ideas, different shooting angles. Of this information about this photo. I saw that there was a big mirror in the living room and I found myself looking at the mirror in the whole family. I put myself behind them and I could make this photo so original.
Living in the midwest United States where it is relatively flat, Katie and Michael wanted to do something special for their after wedding photos here in Estes Park. Rocky Mountain National Park surrounds our town and has many places to pull off and walk in a bit to create amazing images. These two told me before we met that they were alright with being a little dangerous on their day, so I took them here and placed them on a few boulders that stand nearly 1000 feet above the valley floor.
