Paul and Elisa pre wedding shoot

Follow Me on Pinterest
We had a great time with Paul and Elisa last weekend shooting their pre wedding images. They live in the beautiful old Collegiate school building and it proved a fabulous location for lots of different looks. The bright sunlight was lovely but a challenge! We worked with it and got what we feel are some stunning images. It was great fun you two, hope you like the pictures! We're looking forward to their wedding in May at 60 Hope Street with Elisa's family traveling from Italy.....
Youtube video of the photos is here

Here are a few shots from Darren and Emma's wedding last weekend. What glorious weather we had, and lovely service with Emma's dad actually conducting the marriage part of the service! It was also good to meet up with other couple's whose weddings we have covered or are booked to cover later this year.
It was a lovely day, especially with all the well wishers we encountered in Sefton Park!

Welcome to new 2011 wedding clients Clare and Daniel

Follow Me on Pinterest
This week, we are delighted to welcome Clare and Daniel as wedding clients for 2011. We photographed Clare's brother's wedding last year and have also known Clare for a few years. It's great photographing siblings' weddings as we really feel like we get to know lots of the couple's family and friends, which helps everyone feel a lot more relaxed! We met up last week and had a good laugh and all got on really well! We're really looking forward to the day even if a some of Daniel's family are actually professional photographers for national newspapers!! No pressure then...........

We are pleased to welcome Emma and Jake as our latest 2011 wedding clients. We met last weekend after exchanging emails and we're delighted that they have chosen us to photograph their wedding. They initially inquired about our photography in early 2010 and have finally decided on us as they liked our work so much.

We were pleased to supply images from our work with West Tower to exclusive property website Private Venues. The owner of the site commented on how much he liked the images and the creative way they were shot. It's always nice to hear of our work being appreciated and we are happy that our relationship with the West Tower is continuing to go forward.



Welcome to new 2012 wedding clients Michelle and George

Follow Me on Pinterest
This week, we are delighted to welcome Michelle and George and new wedding clients. Michelle and I met at the West Tower's wedding fair in February and got on really well. After a few emails, we finally got to meet up last week for a coffee and to discuss their wedding photography. We got on so well and had such a laugh together it was great that there was such a connection. This is so important in photography and being at ease as photographer and client makes getting stunning images that much easier!
We're really excited to have been chosen to cover their wedding, Michelle said "at the wedding fair, of all the photographers I spoke to, I only warmed to you". This was really nice to hear and we're really looking forward to working with and for Michelle and George. Especially as George promised to wear a really "special" outfit for their pre-wedding shoot.......!
