Wedding Review 2016

“Now join your hands, and with your hands your hearts.” – William Shakespeare Looking back on 2016, all the weddings that I have attended have been really amazing. The size of the wedding party has ranged from 24 to 224 and my youngest bride was 20 and my oldest bride was……older. Feedback from all has been wonderful and they have all been very happy with their photos. I have a critical eye, so am always striving to do better.  Here […]

The Perfect Wedding

Did you hear the one about the bride who was 40 minutes late for the wedding (not her fault), or the speeches that went on for two hours, or the guest who inadvertently impersonated an upturned turtle on a wet dance-floor, or the need for a back up electricity generator when the power went off or the bride’s sister being a little worse for wear? Being a wedding photographer, I attend more weddings than the average person, so I have […]

Halfway through 2016

2016…what a year and we are only half way through it. I thought it worthwhile looking back at my own experiences as a photographer and sharing some of the ups and downs taking each month at a time. I spent January mainly editing weddings that had taken place in December. One of the reasons why it can take a couple of months for wedding photographs to be delivered is that photographers have to give some space between the event and […]

Photography on the Big Day

Here are 10 top tips for getting the most out of your photography on your wedding day. 1. Don’t keep everyone hanging around….Suggest to the photographer that short sessions of 15 minutes might be better for everyone, with the exception of the bride and groom shots, which should be around 30 minutes. 2. Behind the scenes shots are important too….During the Bridal preparations everyone may be full of nervous anticipation. This is a great opportunity for a good photographer to […]

Guyzance Hall Wedding

Despite that fact that I am a Newcastle Upon Tyne based photographer, last year I photographed weddings in York, Scarborough, Huddersfield, Loch Lomond and Leeds as well as local venues. I have learnt that each wedding is different and comes with hiccups, laughter, nerves and love. David and Catherine’s wedding ceremony was held at Sacred Heart Church in Gosforth, and the wedding breakfast & evening reception was at Guyzance Hall in Northumberland. It was held close to the shortest day […]

Claire and John’s Cameron House Wedding

I was delighted to be asked to photograph John and Claire’s wedding at the stunning Cameron House (www.cameronhouse.co.uk) on the banks of Loch Lomond.  The CH team did a great job and did their best to ensure that the day went well.  A number of John’s family and friends had flown over from South Africa to join the couple in celebrating their special day. Claire was remarkably calm and chilled, and all appeared to be running smoothly.  Claire and the Ladies […]

Wedding Venues

Wedding Photography is quite nerve-racking, but ultimately the photographer just wants to produce the best images they can given the environment they are working in.  Most venues are fantastic, but there can be the odd exception. Problems usually arise from simple things such as service without a smile, timeliness on serving meals, lack of communication/updates and lack of preparation. The side effect is that the stress levels of the B&G and guests increase, thus lessening their enjoyment of this wonderful […]

Using Social Media to seize professional photography opportunities

Social Media

There is no getting away from the power of social media in respect to developing relationships with existing and potential clients. I recently attended a seminar hosted by a major data collation organisation where phrases such as Big Data, Social Intelligence and Social Selling were used as commonly as mobile phones, the Internet and the web. Every day customers provide insights as their intentions to buy but how easy is it to pick up on these intentions. The smart search […]
