Passing through Patterdale Village – Lake District Road Trip!

A tiny little village, big delight!
During my trip to the Lake District earlier this year I discovered the village of Patterdale. This was to my delight because my four legged pride and joy, Oscar, is a Patterdale Terrier mixed with Border Collie. Looking around at the terrain I could see how he is truly built for life there. Unfortunately he wasn’t with me to give the hills and wild grass a test-drive, he can jump ridiculously high thus runs…

Why do an engagement Shoot?

If you hate the camera there’s all the more reason to!
Even rockstars have said that although famous and have had bazillions of photos taken on them, they still tense up in front of the camera. As a photographer, I too tense up, and I have this strange sensation that my nostrils are flaring. So why on earth have another shoot in light of your wedding?

1. Getting to know the camera!
Your photographer can help teach you tricks on how…

A wander around Tetbury. A small, quaint old town in the Cotswolds!

One of the best perks about being a Wedding Photographer is to see parts of the world you might never have travelled to. I simply adore getting asked to quaint places such as the Cotswolds to get a bit of country air. So if asked I always make sure to take a little tour after breakfast the next day to get some snaps and / or pop in a few shops, and that is exactly what I did when…

Aira Force aka Waterfalls and Rainbows!!

The photos will really do the talking here, but this was my first ever trip to Aira Force. A place filled with beautiful waterfalls, rainbows, babbling brooks, mossy rocks and apparently rare red squirrels! I was gutted not to have spotted any of the copper coated cuties, but that is the only ‘fomo’ I experienced.

Seasonally speaking, I enjoyed the winter-sun vibes, but I would love to return in the summer to see how different the speckled light on the…

Pantone Colour of the Year 2018: Ultra Violet

Pantone declared their colour of the year, Ultra Violet. At first I thought, well that’s good news for Willy Wonka but frankly, I’m struggling to see how that trend will benefit weddings. However!! I went to one of my favourite places for inspiration, Pinterest! I’ve found some glorious ideas, and it turns out it isn’t such a barking mad idea after all. Personally, I would favour an overall neutral palette with dashes of lavender paired with deep botanical greens….

Snowy Walk With My Dog Oscar

An unusually cold day in North London, -4’c (feeling like -8’c), and oh boy did it take some welly to get my chunky camera out with two big old lenses, and a hyperactive patterdale / collie called Oscar cross at my side. It was my first experience taking pictures in heavy snow, and thank Lord I had waterproof protection for the camera because snow went everywhere. Including, my poor doggies beard. The snow wouldn’t melt, it merely grew into…

Sula & Oliver

I had the luxury of shooting in Kew Gardens on a sunny summers day. Sula is a florist and fiancé Oliver is in marketing. They both are passionate about flowers and trees so it was a natural choice to select Kew as a location.

One of the highlights which I remember is of the couple showing me to a tree of memory and sentiment to them, a mulberry tree! I may or may not have tried a mulberry for the…
