Your Grandparents Wedding Film

They do have one to share with you right? A memory and heirloom of a fabulous day from probably what is at least 50 years ago. From your grandmother’s bridal preparations through the ceremony, from that first look to that first kiss, before your parents even existed. There’s a beautiful timeless film that captured the…

Analogue Photography In A Digital World

First of all, what is analogue photography? For most and for me, it’s simply using film rather than digital. My background is shooting rolls of either 24 or 36 exposure colour or black & white film for 2 years at college, 3 years at university, 1 year in industry and 3-4 years at weddings. In…

What is hybrid wedding photography?

Hybrid is a word that is becoming more familiar in terms of wedding capture. It is essentially the combined approach of photography and video, at the same time. Traditionally, we used to have photographers in one camp and videographers in another, but partly due to tech and partly due to how we see and use…

Probably the cutest wedding picture ever which is a page boy and a flower girl at a wedding in South West France

Wedding Regrets

By the time you get to this stage, it’s already too late. This is the stuff most either gloss over prior to ‘the big day’ or simply do not even consider. Everyone is different and has different wishes and priorities, but when you scroll through couples’ post-wedding regret lists (not something I do very often!),…

Covid-19 Weddings

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh. Would you like me to elaborate? OK, I will. Covid-19 Weddings. Whoever thought that would be a ‘thing’ just a few months back? I have been capturing weddings now for what should have been my 20th year. I went full-time, ie, gave up everything else to become a wedding specialist in 2002. To date,…

END OF 2019 SEASON REVIEW

Absolutely fantastic year and my life is one of constant sunshine, rainbows and unicorns. Actually, it was a pretty fantastic year for weddings, but let’s be realistic for a moment and not buy into the ‘my life is totes super-fabulous all the time’ unreality that is social media. Let’s do the negatives first and get…

So long 2018…Well hello 2019!

I admit I am slightly late this year with this one… At the start of each new year, I post an end of year summary and what I am looking forward to in 2019. I am a bit late this year (posting in mid March) because I have been a bit busy until now. First…

2018, here we come!

2018, here we come! So if 2017 was the best year to date and better than 2016 which was better than 2015, which was in turn better than 2014, which was of course better than 2013…all the way back to the year 2000, how am I going to top it in 2018? “Easily” would be…

France Weddings 2017 Review

France Weddings 2017 Review Every year is the ‘best ever’ isn’t it? Well it’s true, it was! Although my 17th full year as a wedding photographer/film-maker, this was my first full year actually resident in France.
