Ultimate Guide to Pre-Wedding Shoot Locations

The 5 Best Locations for Pre-Wedding Shoots The two questions I get asked the most about Pre-Wedding Shoots are a) what to wear and b) where to go. The first is quite easy, it’s up to you, but I would suggest either dress if you were a guest at friend’s wedding, going for a nice Sunday lunch with family or wrapped up against the elements in your best coat and scarf. A lot depends on the weather and time of […]

Brinkburn Wedding Photography

“I know a bank where the wild thyme blows, Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows, Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine, With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.”  William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream With a floral theme of sunflowers then it was appropriate that a cloudless sky welcomed the guests on the day of Zara and Craig’s wedding.  My second photographer, Stacey joined the groom and his groomsmen where they were located at a guest house in Rothbury, Northumberland.

The Wow Factor and Wedding Photography

“Virtue is bold, and goodness never forgetful” – William Shakespeare I follow a photography website called “Fearless” Wedding Photographers https://www.fearlessphotographers.com/ To me their images are stunning, but they are not to everyone’s taste. They use fine art, impressionist and abstract techniques. The featured Brides and Grooms are often small in the frame or in complete shilouette or artistically blurred. When I photograph a wedding I have to be careful in ensuring that my clients get the highest quality images that […]

It may be possible that our digital photographs will disappear over time, […]
