What a year its been! Whilst I haven't been adding a monthly blog post, I have been active in Hertfordshire as a photographer travelling, meeting people, collaborating, planning and most importantly taking loads of photos. As with my blog this is my place to display my love, my photos that drive me forward and keep my creative flair running.
Portrait photography is so important, its something that can display a characters emotions, light can convey meaning and lastly it shows who we are. This summer I have taken some of my favourite portraits, from commercial jobs to snapping away with friends in the sun. One thing we are obsessed with is selfies. Turn the camera around, snap your friends smiling, catch them in good light, frame them correctly and most importantly, share your images! Soundscape performing below are worth checking out if your in need of a Hertfordshire based band.
Heres some of mine:
Last week I had the honour of delivering Mark and Lauren their wedding day images. During their wedding day Lauren expressed to us that Mark and herself want to be the first people to see the images. This meant that Alice ( My second shooter) and myself had to retain from showing anyone images from behind the camera.
The couple returned from their honeymoon last weekend and my gift to them was a guarantee of their images finished for their return.
What I really enjoyed about their wedding was how important their son George is to them, and how important having a close knit family is. We absolutely loved the small ceremony and everyone couldn't take their smiles off their faces!
The past two months have flown by as I have been the busiest I have ever been!
Late April I took on a shoot for a company called Dogatella who create beautiful dog leads, collars and bracelets. Now I am used to photographing weddings but this shoot was so fun working alongside several dogs as well as models.
May has seen myself take on a project close to what I was doing on my degree. I rarely film anymore but a client I have completed films for before has returned to create a short movie at a large London based media agency. Unfortunately I cannot share any more than this but the project has been extremely fun and movie editing is something else compared to photo editing!
Two weeks ago I shot a wedding for a lovely couple Mark and Lauren. They both met at their place of work about 9 years a go and have been deep in love since. Their son George was really cute throughout the day and their focus was on catching plenty of images involving him. I am currently in the middle of finishing their photos but here is one of my favourite images exported as a tester.
June is a month of editing and admin for me. I'll be looking into updating this website and arranging to attend a few wedding fairs throughout the year.
