Francesca & Alex – wedding photographer @ Oxwich Bay Hotel

Introducing an unforgettable wedding at the Oxwich Bay Hotel. Do you remember the big come back of summer 2011 (that didn’t really happen in Wales!) and the tropical weather weekend at the very end of September? I guess Chess and Alex couldn’t be more lucky with their beach wedding planned for that time.

Absolutely stunning bride and bridal party, wonderful locations, bold colors, sunshine and blue, blue sky. It doesn’t get any better than this.

Thank you to Julia who was second shooting with me on a day. If you want to see her collection of images off that day here’s a link to the blog post with her photographs.

Also, Francesca and Alex’s engagement session (fantastic one!) can be viewed here:)

I hope you enjoy the below set of photographs. I obviously failed totally when it came to choosing ‘only 20 best shots’. I don’t know how to do it… I just… don’t know. :O Was trying my hardest t still exceeded 100 images… Oh well, I’ll get there, one day!;)x x

Bride and Groom: Francesca and Alex

great set, but the last image of shoes is amazing. I love it how you isolated the subject!

Newborn hats – photography props

In between one wedding and another just a very quick post on some exciting newborn photography plans. :] Below I’ve uploaded the newest photography props my mum made over the last 2 months, I’m super excited to be playing with them this Spring. Newborn photography is like a treat and creative distraction for me rather than main focus of my photographic work, something I thoroughly enjoy but am not looking to expand in this area business wise. At the moment I’m only booking one newborn session per month and I do apologize for the declining messages I sometimes end up sending.

Moving away from the [boring!] business talk let me just share the thought of how much I LOVE the fact my mum is such an amazing knitter/crocheter/seamstress and that she’s helping me, sharing my excitement and cheering for me from the moment I first picked up a camera 3.5 yrs ago.  She lives far away but very close to my heart, never stopped supporting me especially during really low times and believed in me when no one else did, including myself…

…not to go down the sobby route what I’m trying to say here really is that I have [simply] the best mum in the world.  :]

And here are the newborn photography props, she’s getting really good at it!:)

The top left hat took my mum something like 1.5 days to make – she was staying at mine then getting sooo angry with this time consuming pattern it makes me laugh when I think about it haha. I guess she would not offer to make this hat again for the chunkiest fee ever!:DBut I love it the most of all, I think it looks just great, well worth… all these hours… of work…. sorry mum!:D

I love your mums hats she is very clever….I was actually looking at patterns for my mum to knit for me for some newborn sessions…Only trouble is I need some little people to shoot !

I must say your work is outstanding ! You are very talented

Kind regards

Mike

The quality of these hats is superb. I ordered several for use in the studio and was amazed at how good they are. Many thanks. Richard. Aspect Photography of Cambridge.

Newborn photography in London – baby Jax

Baby Jax – cuteness overload. Beautiful young lad although not a very good sleeper.:)We waited ages until he eventually drifted away to the dreamland, which was the last few minutes of the shoot really haha. Nonetheless here we are with the set of images, hope you like.

work in progress…

This is not very usual of me but hey – ‘it’s my blog I can do what I want to!’;)So here I wanted to show you some of the pre weddings sessions I have done recently that are waiting to be edited (images below are not edited or only delicately touched). I know some of you literally can’t wait for your wedding/engagement images to be all done and delivered, but I can just promise you – I am getting there, slowly but consistently! I’ve almost given up my life and glued my bottom to the chair but with the perfectionist approach of mine (that I’m seriously starting to hate!)  it’s still taking ages if I’m to go this patiently and carefully through every single job of mine. I just want to make sure each couple gets the qualities they’ve chosen me for from start to finish.

Anyway, see below previews of some shoots I’ve had over the past months that haven’t yet been finished, polished and delivered. I love it how each couple is completely different and how they are all very creative and beautiful in and out. It feels beyond amazing becoming part of their history.

I didn’t know this was on here! how exciting. I’m not kidding misses, that day was AMAZING!!! We loved every minute, even the freezing cold wind and grease from the train all added to the wonderfulness of the memory.

Can’t wait for our wedding, and to make more wonderful memories xx
