You can fly in many ways, you can look at an image from different positions, but doing it from the air makes it look different, with much more freedom, and you give more meaning to each image. You realize beauty when you are able to look at it for more than two minutes.
When I noticed the awesome lanterns, and the beautiful symmetry in Gosfield Hall, I just knew that as it got dark it would make for a great image, but as soon as it began raining I knew that was the PERFECT time to get Charlotte & James outside to make it happen and it worked out perfectly :-)
When the groom only asks for one picture on his wedding day that includes an imperial walker from Star Wars then you must oblige. We had a lot of fun creating this image at Kathryn & Ryans wedding at Anstey Hall in Cambridgeshire, with them and their bridal party.
The Incredible Kovil Montagne...
This sacred place is one of the most beautiful temples in Mauritius which is located on the top of a mountain. It was quite difficult to go there with all equipment like AD600 strobe and all. But the willingness of the couple to get something different and out of the world motivated us to go beyond our limit.
The hard work paid.
I shot this at a beautiful venue in Gloucestershire called Dumbleton Hall. There is this amazing tree I wanted to use as a silhouette shot. I used a purple get with 2 flash guns on full power. I placed them about 3 metres away from the tree to capture as much of the tree I could and the couple stood about 1 metre in front. ????
One of the last photographs taken outside on the day of Bethany and Jack's amazing wedding at Hengrave Hall before we headed inside to finish the night off in true style. Congratulations guys for having me along for the day. I had spotted this backdrop previously knowing it would be stunning when lit up at night. Such an amazing venue.
I love it when bridal couples sometimes take more difficult photos. Now one wonders what was so difficult about it ?! OK. The access to the pasture was secured with barbed wire. The bride is afraid of cows, and a wedding dress doesn't really get along with what cows leave behind in a pasture. :-) Still, both of them managed it wonderfully.
My beautiful bride Vicky absolutely nailed her wedding boudoir. A moment just us, away from the expected wedding preparation chaos to give her this stunning image. Shot in the stunning bridal suite at the perfectly picturesque, luxury wedding venue that is Branxholm Park.
Low winter light streaming through the windows of the gorgeous Monastery in Manchester . . Throw a bride into that light and the results speak for themselves! I absolutely love playing with pockets of natural light or creating my own using flash to get creative with my images!
Sophie - always smiling no matter what the weather! After postponing her wedding from 2020 she couldn’t be happier to finally walk down that aisle! Oh and by the time the newly weds emerged from the church, the storm clouds had passed and the sun shone for the rest of the day!
We was coming to the end of the night and I wanted to see what it would look like from the other side of the pond at Sheene Mill. So as I walked round in the muddy ground, I knew right away I had to photograph this. This was one of the last images of the day and I'm so glad I got wet and covered in mud because it was worth it in the end. It feels so great to fight for every image.
