We hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far, we've had some fabulous weather haven't we?!
We've been busy the past couple of months with various shoots and preparing for our holiday so we thought we'd have a catch up and share some details and some pics of the kind of things we've been up to...
Family Portrait Session.
The aim of this session was to capture the great relationship between this family and their beautiful Labrador 'Jess' and to get some relaxed pictures of their 2 daughters. We chose a location that would allow the girls and Jess to have some freedom and to capture their interest and curiosity. The shoot went really well with some great results! Whoever said don't work with children or animals?! They're a great combination!
Wedding - Floral Hall, Tunstall Park - Stoke on Trent
This was a new venue for us so we weren't really sure what to expect, add to this the fact that it was a family wedding so much 'multi-tasking' was required made for a busy but fun day. The weather was exceptionally sunny and warm so hunting for good light was key. The bride had chosen a really vivid colour scheme - Stunning Red bridesmaid dresses were complimented by classic red roses in the bouquets, not your usual colour for a summer wedding maybe but it all worked so well and just looked so striking. A lovely day to be involved in and a great little venue, if you're looking to get married in that area soon, take a look!
Mini Portrait Sessions - Acton hall Livery
This was a really fun and busy day form us. Each client getting a 30min slot for portraits. We were happy to shoot ridden or ground based and with or without humans :-) We had such an variety of clients - some with some 4 legged doggy friends too. Everyone had made such an effort, grooming their horses to perfection. We love to photograph owners and pets, the relationship, affection and connection always comes through so we hugely enjoyed this day. This us a great yard too if you're looking for somewhere to stable your horse, Top notch facilities, friendly staff and clients and great hacking I'm told!
Next month we'll fill you in on the rest of our summer adventures and what's next on the cards for us. In the meantime here are a selection of pictures from the past few weeks.
Thanks for reading!
