Cheltenham
 

The Cheltenham Jazz Festival.  A great atmosphere joined by all ages with artists performing all over the town centre.  Montpelier Gardens were host to the main attractions with plenty of food and drink.  I managed to return in the evening all be it brief as is pored it down with rain.  Great event for the town and was honoured to be asked to capture it in pictures.

Chipping Campden
 

Full of history and one of the oldest market halls, Chippen Campden is a very popular place to visit.  A pleasant walk along the curved street lined by quaint shops, pubs and restaurants.  Built side by side over hundreds of years are, in abundance, some of Cotswold's most beautiful architecture.  Not forgetting the Almshouses that sit adjacent to St James Church.  In front of these is the historic wheel wash bay.    

bourton on the water

One of the most visited places in the Cotswolds where thousands gather on the riverside green throughout the summer. Soaking up the tranquil settings of this stunning village.  Shallow waters and quaint narrow bridges are something to be enjoyed. Bourton is stunning throughout all seasons and every year we have the Christmas Tree in the river.

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

Couples travel miles to get married in the Cotswolds.  Known to be one the most romantic places to get married in the UK.  Honeycomb stoned churches, quiet historic villages and the stunning surrounding landscapes is one of the many reasons we are passionate to provide this service.

Getting Married in the Cotswolds?

As a wedding photography service we never get the couple to commit before we invite them for a free engagement shoot.  Lower & Upper Slaughter is the location we use to provide us with stunning backdrops and the essence of romance.  This time is spent getting to know the couple as well as them getting to know the photographer.  This perfect introduction is to build a relationship that will pay much dividends on the day.  As a goodwill gesture should the bride and groom go elsewhere they will walk away with one free image from the shoot and an amazing experience.

 

our Style

Creative thinking

There are many ways in which a photographer can compose a shot.  We like to look around and search for objects, places or items that can make the shot look a little different.  Giving our clients something different is majorly important to us so we think creatively at every opportunity; for example, being an artist, it is likely that you will see us placing your rings in unusual places with great care.

Showcase

Some of the most important images we find get forgotten and are the simple ones such as the wedding car.  A lot of money has been spent and is it our duty to showcase and provide the classy materials used to enhance the wedding experience.  The car and other wedding contributions have a strong reflection to the character of the couple and are most certainly a must when it comes to the image collection.

PREPARATIONS

Whether it's a few or a combined collection of the bride and groom these shots should not be missed.  We recommend this type of photography as these sudden moments that would otherwise be lost can be a frozen spectacle in time.  

Groups

Most groups shots can seem a little boring but we tend to break up the monotonous cliche of wedding groups shots.  As with our creative thinking we plan ahead and scout the location for ideas in advance that would make a good group photo.   

UNOBTRUSIVE

No matter how many times you say "smile"or get someone to pose a smile you will always get staged.  One of the best ways to get someones real character in smile is to step back and get in close without them knowing.  Here you can see a lovely smile that says it all from the mother of the bride.

fun

Personally, this has to be one of our favourite shoot requests; taking in the beautiful surrounding countryside coupled with the opportunity to have professional quality photos of a moment that you will cherish forever.  No studio!, no artificial lighting! and all the room you want to have a fun packed session.

 

engagements

Being in front of camera can be quite nerve racking.  This is why wedding couples are offered a free engagement shoot.  This is a great way for your photographer to get to know you and for you to get to know them.  This is perfect prior to the big day and therefore making it more pleasurable when the day arrives!
