Chelmsford engagement photo

I'm not sure I've experienced a more beautifully sunny summer's evening like when I met up with Chanelle and Shaun over at Hylands Park, Chelmsford, for their pre-wedding shoot. It was glorious! I was really pleased when they'd got in touch with me regarding photography for their wedding at the Reid Rooms in early 2019, as I'd previously met them…

she said yes

  Congratulations! They asked, and you said Yes! You're now officially engaged, so what happens next?     If you've never planned a wedding before, it'd be understandable if you were feeling very giddy, and perhaps slightly overwhelmed with everything that happens next! Give yourself 10 points every time someone grabs your hand to see the ring, asks you for…

Bushy Park London pre wedding shoot

What a little beaut I have for you here. When Sarah and Miguel suggested Bushy Park in Richmond-upon-Thames for their pre-wedding shoot, the opposite side of the M25 to me, I didn't mind one bit you see, because Sarah and I knew each other in a previous life. Nothing spiritual, I mean she and I used to work with one…

Essex forest engagement shoot

I'm so happy when a couple asks me if they can bring their dog along to their pre-wedding shoot! I'd already met Smeagol the golden retriever puppy when I first chatted with Kristina and Adam about their wedding, and Smeagol greeted me with playful puppy rough and tumble (as they do - my dog also used to do this as…

Hylands Park engagement

During the summer I headed to Hylands Park, Chelmsford to meet Moana the pug, then photograph her and her humans, Abbie and Jon. Abbie and I already knew one another from previously working at the same organisation, and it was great to catch up with her and meet Jon, whereupon I heard all about their wedding plans. As you've read…

Sunset engagement photos

What happens when you hang on all summer to have your photos taken in a gloriously summery wheat field, only to find the field has been cut before you get there? Well you just soldier on anyway, and get some beautiful images in the gorgeous golden summer evening sunshine instead. Natasha and George are currently my longest-serving booking, after I…

Gibberd Gardens Harlow

When Cassie and Harry agreed meeting halfway between our respective locations for their pre-wedding shoot was a good idea, I had to get creative. I live in Chelmsford and they're in Hertfordshire, so after much Googling and head-scratching, I decided the motorway services on the M11 wasn't going to cut it, and stumbled upon The Gibberd Garden, a lovely little…

Engagement photos at Marks Hall Gardens

Marks Hall Gardens and Arboretum provided the backdrop for Charlotta and Mitesh's pre-wedding shoot, not only because they'll be getting married there later this year, but also because it's bloody gorgeous! Marks Hall will be the venue for their second of two wedding celebrations, the first being a ceremony near Watford in early August, and then I'll share their second…

If I had a pound for every time I've been told by couples "We don't really look good in photos", I wouldn't be sat here writing this blog post, I'd be sipping champagne from my yacht in Monaco. As it is, no-one ever pays me that pound, and instead I reply with the same thing as always: Don't worry, we…

epping-forest-engagement

Have I got a couple of beauts for you! I met Hannah and Matthew (and their pet labrador Bear!) at Epping Forest for their engagement shoot, back on a very sunny day following Easter. Although Hannah, Matthew and Bear actually live in Devon, they chose Epping Forest because their wedding next year is being held in Epping, and after hearing…
