Lizzy & James: Sneak Peek

Yesterday Lizzy and James got married at Frinton Cricket Club on a gorgeously hot and sunny day. After having a quick look through their pictures this morning, the one below really stood out to me and I had to upload it for them to see before they set off on their honeymoon weekend.

Keep your eyes peeled for the rest of the wedding in a few weeks time.

Kerry O'Brine Womenswear - Sneak Peek

Yesterday I had a brilliant opportunity to shoot the sample pieces of Kerry O'Brine Womenswear's Autumn/Winter collection. This was my first step back into studio shooting since leaving cruise ships, so I was a little worried that I'd have just forgotten how everything worked. Luckily it all fell into place and we got some absolutely gorgeous results. I couldn't resist a sneak peek....

I'll be blogging the whole shoot very soon and some behind the scenes action too. Thank you to the fabulous team who all worked really hard to make these images beautiful!

Heather & Chris: Married - River Thames Wedding, London.

Back in April I was invited by Julie Skelton of Julie Anne Images to second shoot at Heather and Chris' wedding. They decided to tie the knot aboard the H.S Hispaniola on the river thames and when I went to meet Julie to talk over the order of the day we were both excited about the possibilities shooting in central London brought us.

The day of their wedding fell on April 23rd, the first bank holiday of the year and the first BIG heatwave. London was heaving as I arrived and I had to fight to get across Westminster Bridge to meet Julie, Heather and the rest of the girls in their hotel room at the County Hall Hilton Hotel.

Chris and Heather's sons read a poem out during the speeches, they were a perfect little double act.

Thank you Julie for inviting me along to help you photograph such a fun wedding day, and Chris and Heather thank you for making us feel so welcome.

Summer Holiday Time - Teen Photo Shoot Deal

I have an exciting deal for teenagers this summer. To celebrate the end of your exams, finishing school or college I am reducing the price of teenage photo shoots for one month only. This will include a photo session in a location of your choice in Colchester (or local surrounding villages) plus unlimited outfit changes and use of props. You'll also get your favourite picture uploaded to Facebook for you to use and an online gallery via my website.

Teen photo sessions usually cost £70 and £5 from every photo shoot is donated to Teenage Cancer Trust. For one month only I'm reducing the cost to just £20 per session and still donating £5 of that fee to Teenage Cancer Trust.

Even better than that if you book with a friend I'll photograph your sessions together for just £30 and still give a donation to TCT. That way you get an even better deal (just £15 each!) and the moral support of your friend on the day!

This is a great opportunity for you to put your prom dress back on for a chance to 'rock the frock' in a location where you'd never dream of wearing it normally. Like Sophie below who brought some vintage glamour to her derelict backdrop.

Even without a prom dress, teen photo shoots are like mini fashion shoots. You call the shots by bringing along what you like to wear and I'll work my magic to make you look fantastic. A usual photo session lasts about 1 - 2 hours. We'll walk around your location and incorporate as many different backdrops as possible.

After your photo session I'll visit you and your parents in your home to show you your photographs. There you can decide which you'd like to purchase and which picture you'd like me to upload to Facebook for you. All orders placed after your session will also generate a 5% donation to Teenage Cancer Trust.

There is no minimum order and product prices start at just £10. There really is nothing stopping you!!

The Teen Photo Shoot deal is available from 7th July to the 7th August 2011 and must take place this summer. Email to book your slot now!

*This deal is separate from the teen representative referral programme*
