Autumn mini-portraits – Archie and Billy

A couple of weeks ago I did a day of mini sessions in Meanwood Park. It’s a shortened version of a full portrait session and includes a few digital files – perfect for Christmas presents. I’m going to do another day soon as I’ve had a lot of people asking if I can do it again so let me know if you’re interested so you can reserve your slot. Here though, is the first of that day’s bumper crop. Archie and Billy! I first photographed these lovely brothers when they were really little a couple of years ago (you can see that here) and it’s great to see them so lively as they are growing up…

PapaKata open day – wedding photography in Yorkshire

I was lucky enough to be invited to photograph amazing teepee and marquee company PapaKata‘s open day in October, at the lovely Escrick Park estate near York. It was a misty day, making for some atmospheric photography, but it wasn’t hard to see how absolutely stunning these structures look for a wedding. If they can look this good on a gloomy day in Yorkshire imagine how fab they are when the sun comes out. I would love to photograph some PapaKata weddings next year. July and August are pretty booked up with weddings in France but I have some availability in June and plenty in September, and some lovely Yorkshire ones would be perfect.

Nic and Tim’s Spanish street party wedding

Photographing Nic and Tim’s wedding day in Spain couldn’t have been more wonderful. They rented a whole traditional Andalucian village for a week. Overlooking Lake Vinuela in the hills near Malaga, Los Castillejos retains an incredible rustic charm and was the perfect setting for the sunny street party the couple had dreamed of. Nic and Tim both have a great eye for style and details too so from the bunting and lanterns to the table decorations, it was all utterly gorgeous.

Claire and Tom’s domaine wedding near Nimes

Another day, another spectacular wedding in France. Photographing Claire and Tom’s day was a complete honour. Chateau de Campuget is is the heart of a prestigious vineyard near Nimes in the Languedoc. Deciding where to do their couple portraits after the ceremony was a dilemma – should we choose the avenue of old trees, by the old wine barrels and the vintage Citroen, in the vineyard, by the pool, by the gates with the horse, in Margo my trusty VW camper van who came along for the ride? … in the end in we had to do it all. Heavenly.
