Last week I went for a coffee and a chat with Jennifer Jones, a Bridal Stylist based in Warsash, Hampshire. We chatted about ballet (Jennifer used to be a dancer!), wedding dresses and shopping. Jennifer let me in on a some tips for buying your wedding dress, her thoughts on the upcoming bridal trends for 2019/2020, and why you should consider a bridal stylist when planning your wedding…
This beautiful wedding was the first of this season for me. I have known Faith for a long time (we were at school together) and was very excited when she asked me to photograph their day.
The wedding ceremony was at Holy Cross Church, in Woodchurch, Wirral and their reception was in Raby Nurseries, which is beautiful... an outdoor, garden wedding venue.
It was so much fun spending the day with Faith and Rich, seeing old faces from my school days, and meeting friends of theirs from all over the world.
When I met Chloe & Tom back in March, for their beach engagement session, I knew straight away that theirs was going to be a great wedding to photograph! They are such a fun couple and had a wonderful laid back attitude to their wedding, and this came through in the style of the day, from start to finish!
I am sure, during your search for an Auckland wedding photographer, that you have come across the idea of an engagement shoot a number of times! Some wedding photographers offer them as an add on for a package, some don't offer them at all, and some include them as standard. I fall into the third category, and here are 8 great reasons why I think you should consider an engagement session as part of your wedding photography.
The first wedding of the season is normally one of mixed emotions for a wedding photographer. I swing precariously between absolute excitement at getting to experience more beautiful weddings, meet new couples and do what genuinely makes me happy - photograph people and their gorgeous weddings; and extreme nerves - what if I have totally forgotten how to use my camera?!!
