Pre Wedding Photo Shoots
11/04/2018

Pre Wedding Photo Shoots Lancashire Wedding Photographer Quite simply, I love Pre Wedding Shoots, or Engagement Shoots or E-Shoots, or whatever people want to call them this week.  A Pre Wedding Photo Shoot is a great way for me to get to know my Brides and Grooms in an informal way before the hustle and bustle of the wedding day.  I even have a favourite spot for Pre Wedding Photo Shoots, it is Beacon Fell near Garstang in Lancashire.  Its an...

Award Winning Lancashire Wedding Photographer
07/04/2018

Wedisson Award Winner Again! A short time ago I took a couple to Formby Beach for a Post Wedding Shoot.  We had great ideas about a 'Trash the Dress' style shoot where the couple would be in the sea but after a couple of hours in the surrounding forest we were all getting rather cold, so the thought of getting wet was more than we could cope with! Dave and Lisa were amazing to work with - relaxed, comfortable with being posed and obviously very...

Peckforton Castle Wedding Photographer - Chloe and Beejesh
08/03/2018

Chloe & Beejesh   Chloe and Beejesh's big day was to take place at one of my favourite venues, the prestigious Peckforton Castle in Cheshire. I have had the pleasure of shooting many weddings here, and it never fails to take my breath away every time I return. Chloe and Beejesh live in Shanghai. Early communication was via email with a meeting arranged for their next visit home. From the moment I met them both, I knew that this would...

Lancashire Wedding Photographer - Pre-Wedding Shoot Sharon & Lewis - Beacon Fell, Lancashire In preparation for Sharon and Lewis's wedding this year we wandered off to Beacon Fell in Lancashire for our Pre-Wedding Shoot.  These shoots are a great opportunity for a couple to get used to being in front of the camera and to see how I approach portraits.  Lewis and Sharon booked me after seeing the images from the wedding of JP & Lynsay and...

Second Shoots - Chester Zoo Wedding Photographer
15/01/2018

James and Jade at Chester Zoo   When a friend and fellow photographer Daniel Murrientes asked if I would second shoot for him at one of his weddings at Chester Zoo, it was an easy yes! Animals have always held a special place in my heart, choosing a Kenyan Safari for my Honeymoon, and having visited without fail a Zoo or Animal Sanctuary on every family holiday. Sometimes walking straight back out, often staying all day and returning the...

We had a meeting via Skype and not long after contracts were signed and we all looked forward to their big day.

Why Groom Prep is Important
07/01/2018

Why Groom Prep is Important I often get asked "Why would I need a second photographer?", this is one of the very reasons! Unless the groom is getting ready at the same venue as the Bride or lives a short driving distance away, the need for a second photographer will be apparent. It's also a must for anyone who wants a record of both Bride and Groom Prep.   With the main focus being the Bride, sometimes the Groom's story is...

Wedding Photography Crypto Payments Now Accepted
03/01/2018

We all have to keep up with the times and the world of Photography is a fast-changing one.  Not only do I have to keep up with the latest camera technology, photography styles and trends but as a fast growing business I have to keep up with modern business practices too. Our business is heavily automated, all out client bookings and contracts are very much a hands-off way off working - we literally just press the button and the magic elves do all...
