North Shields Fish Quay-engagement photo shoot

October 10, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

I met engaged couple Sarah and Andrew at North Shields Fish Quay in North Tyneside for their engagement photo shoot, just before dusk on Sunday evening.  The Bride-and-Groom-to-be had won my competition to win the Engagement session back in the summer, so I was excited to meet them and hear all about their plans for their 2019 wedding in Wallsend.  I chose the Fish Quay as our location because I knew it was close to where Sarah and Andrew live. I also knew it would be quiet on a Sunday evening as I suspected that Andrew was going to be nervous and apprehensive about the shoot, and there are lots of little nooks and crannies along the Quay, with lots of potential for photographs!  During any photo session with me, I am more interested in the connection between the couple, and showing how you feel about one another, rather than the location (although the Fish Quay has its own charm with lots of lobster pots, wooden crates, fishing boats and seagulls).  If there's a special place with sentimental memories that's good also, but generally the location doesn't hold as much importance as capturing the two of you as a couple.  At first, Andrew was reeeeallly nervous, but I aim to make my sessions fun and stress-free, and I ask my couples to just be themselves, that's the winning formula!  It wasn't long before Andrew and Sarah forgot I was there and I think they smashed it, have a look for yourselves!

If you aren't into awkward posing but you are a creative couple looking for an alternative way to express yourselves then please get in touch!  Engagement photo sessions are relaxed and fun where you can be yourselves!

Dee Sailing Club - documentary wedding photography

October 01, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Iain and Libby tied the knot two days before their official wedding celebrations were held at the Dee Sailing Club on the Wirral.  I was delighted to be asked to capture their celebrations with their friends and family, totally unposed, pure documentary photography of their day.  A marquee next to the Sailing Club would be the venue for the very relaxed party, with stunning views over the Dee Estuary, it really was a beautiful spot!  

Rather than leaving straight after the First Dance, I stayed on to capture the dance floor action!  It is often the best time for photographs, once everybody lets their hair down and really goes for it throwing shapes, and for me to tell the story of the day fully, I like to get right in the thick of it all in the middle of the dance floor and capture those dance moves!

michelle and sandra - converting their civil partnership into marriage

September 12, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

TEN years to the day that Michelle and Sandra entered into a Civil Partnership together, they had returned to the Hall Garth Hotel, Golf & Spa in Darlington to convert their Civil Partnership into Marriage.  I was asked if I could cover just the ceremony, and a few portraits afterwards, a reduced coverage of a short and sweet hour long package, and my answer was yes!  Of Course!!!

It was a beautiful intimate ceremony, with just Michelle, Sandra, their daughter Maria and I present.  How lovely it was to be able to document their vows and ceremony, and to capture their laughter and happy tears!  I arrived just before 1pm, as requested by the brides-to-be, and as they were getting ready for the ceremony, I had time to take some detailed shots of their room decorations, which they had matched to what they had a decade earlier.  Soon after, the ceremony got underway, as well as all the important parts, Michelle and Sandra had chosen some lovely vows to say to each other, and Maria read a poem beautifully - there wasn't a dry eye in the house!  Afterwards, we headed outside into the grounds for some relaxed, fun portraits, which involved having a wander about, a bit of a chat, whilst stopping every now and again near the weeping willow tree of the old greenhouses to take a few photos.  After an hour, it was time for me to leave the newlyweds and Maria to celebrate as a family.  Ladies, you were awesome, thank you for having me at your special service!

If you would like a couple of hours or short wedding photography coverage please get in touch for a bespoke quote.

Engagement photo shoot, capturing your love whatever the weather!

September 08, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

I approach every Engagement photo session in a documentary way.  I'm not going to be asking you both to stand in awkward stiff poses, but instead I'm interested in capturing the two of you together naturally, as you are.  What I really want to show is the connection between the two of you, and most importantly how you feel about one another!  Kat and Craig's engagement session was scheduled for a summer's day in July, no problem I thought, but the Great British weather had other ideas!  Lashing rain and wind greeted us at Little Haven Beach in South Shields, but hey, we cracked on anyway!  We did take cover under the promenade at first, but then we ventured out into the elements.  My camera steamed up towards the end and my hair was stuck to my face but what matters to me is capturing your love for one another, so who cares if a hair or two is out of place, or if you're getting blasted by a force 9 gale?  Like she said in Four Weddings and a Funeral..."...is it raining? I hadn't noticed..." :)

A lifestyle family photo shoot on the beach at South Shields

September 06, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

I met Caroline, Sean and their gorgeous energetic two-year-old Jacob at Littlehaven beach, next to the Herd Groyne Lighthouse, the famous South Tyneside landmark.  The lighthouse, painted bright red and dating back 150 years, and still used by ships to navigate by, Sean wanted the landmark to feature in our photo shoot so he could return year on year with Jacob as he grows up.  My aim was to capture their family in a documentary photography style.  Nothing too posed or staged, just natural, candid day-in-the-life pictures!  It was a joy to photograph Caroline, Sean and Jacob who loved playing in the sand dunes, paddling in the sea, and walking along the pier with Tynemouth in the distance across the river made for some really lovely photographs!
