Jamie & Millie - Engagement Shoot

Being asked to involve a pug in an engagement shoot straight away grabbed my attention. Jamie & Millie mentioned how important it was to bring Winnie with them and she made my day. 

We took our time to wander through Picks Cottage Fishery in Chingford. Winnie lead the way and we followed. Despite being a very overcast day we managed to make the most of the amazing scenery.

Engagement Shoot - V&I

Vally and Inese are an amazing couple who I cannot wait to join on their wedding day. We headed out to Hatfield Forest which is an outstanding place of beauty under the National Trust. Hatfield Forest is a brilliant place for photographers, families, dog walkers and anyone who enjoys nature. We took a walk around the lake and through the forest, Inese even helped me out spotting a beautiful area which she and Vally loved.

Engagement Shoot - J&C

Jimmy & Cassandra are a lovely couple who I have the honour of photographing on their wedding day. We visited one of my favourite locations in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire. Engagement shoots allow both the couple and myself to become comfortable with each other and take some great photos that can be used for your invites, singing books and other items on the day.

Do your bit and volunteer!

Every year I try to do my bit and give a day to a charity. Last year I visited Haven House Hospital Charity Shop in Chingford, London. It was great fun helping out and seeing what goes on behind the scenes. 

This year I was approached by Sophie from Leukaemia Care. Every few months for their free magazine they publish Inspirational Stories to where experiences are shared. Sophie introduced me to Margaret, a lovely lady from my home town of Hoddesdon so that we could capture a few images for their magazine. Im not going to spoil anything but I can't wait to hear Margarets story and see which images Sophie has decided to publish.

Margaret hated having her photo taken, something I hear a lot from friends and clients. I put Margaret at ease and we had a good chat about growing up in Hoddesdon whilst taking a few snaps in-between. Check out the Leukaemia Care website and donate if you can. You can read other inspirational stories here.

April Update

With a logo, new business cards, leaflets and many other things, I am crazy busy right now! Establishing myself on Facebook and Instagram is keeping me busy. I am still finding time to shoot and last weekend I met with Kev and Jess a couple from Hoddesdon to go on a walk around the local areas and appreciate the rare bit of sun that we had.
