Saltram is the sweetest location for a pre wedding shoot, it is so versatile with it’s greenery and beautiful estuary it was a no brainer that my first wedding couple of the year chose it for their first photography session with me. These guys are such a playful, down to earth couple and although a bit apprehensive about the photoshoot, throughout the shoot they quickly adapted to being photographed and became at ease and let their personalities show. I learned that Tariq loves to play Tarzan and Esther has a love for sausage dogs so it was a lovely moment when a little sausage dog turned up for a picture, cutie!
Here are the beautiful Esther and Tariq, not long now until your wedding day and I cannot wait!
L A U R A & B A Z
I met these two on a chilly winter evening at the stunning Perranporth Beach ready to go with thick coats and hats; these guys are no strangers to the elements and we discussed various trips all over the world they had been and plan to go on in the future. The sunset could not have been more beautiful that day, faded pink and blue skies mixed with the vast beach and stormy waters it gave quite an ethereal atmosphere, perfect for photography. We also spotted various creatures of which I thought at first were jellyfish, which Baz told me are called Portuguese man of war!
Laura and Baz are one of my first weddings of the year so really looking forward to seeing them again in a completely different atmosphere! Until then…here at the beautiful outdoorsy couple…
I can only begin to express how I feel about 2017 after the most epic year, from my very first couples to the last couples I feel truly blessed to be a wedding photographer. A career choice did not come easy to me and it was exactly this time last year that photography just clicked in my life. I made a new years resolution of trying to become not only known for my photography but establish myself as a wedding photographer and for my style, and for once I can say yes! I actually stuck to a new years resolution and everything came true and more…
Thank you for all the support from my family, friends, so many people in the industry who have given me the courage to keep going and to my partner who despite everything has stuck by me continually pushing me further. And lastly to all my beautiful couples whose amazing weddings I have captured this year, to all the couples who have booked me for 2018, I am so excited for this year ahead it is going to be busy and amazing I can feel it!
So here is a toast to my 2017 couples and some of my favourites snaps from the year….
I met Kayleigh and Jack at the beginning of the year when I decided wedding photography was definately for me but I had no couple images to share with my future clients. Luckily there were four couples that believed in my small portfolio and helped kick start my imagery and these guys were one of those couples, they hold a special place in my photography heart.
Almost a year later they have booked me for their wedding and I could not be more honoured to capture their beautiful day. I still can’t quite believe it when couples want to book me because of my natural style and I was just so excited to get out with this couple again after learning so much more techinally and compositionally!
Here is the gorgeous Kayleigh and Jack at sunset at the beautiful devon reservoir Burrator, if you haven’t been its definately worth a visit!
Here is another wedding from the beginning of the autumn of Chloe and Mike’s beautiful day in this stunning 17th century barn conversion Hayne, with perfect autumn sunshine and bohemian florals this really was one to capture!
Warning! Detail heavy!
This next autumn wedding took place at the couple’s own cottage in Devon which backed onto some glorious farmland which was obviously the perfect location for a reception. The styling for this wedding was just amazing so it was really hard to stop taking detail pictures constantly! I am really starting to appreciate just how lucky I am to be living in what I believe to be the best and most versatile parts of the country with such amazing landscapes and venues to capture.
So here is Becky and Adam’s beautiful sunny autumn wedding that was literally just on their doorstep…enjoy!
I had the pleasure of assisting the lovely Freckle Photography in September and captured the most colourful autumn themed weddings in Devon.
Here is the first from Coombe Trenchard an amazing country house venue located on Dartmoor, perfect for those couples wanting to create something a bit unique for their special day.
Here is just a snippet of Rach and Dale’s beautiful wedding day in the countryside, feast your eyes on this vintage inspired, autumny goodness!
I am so incredibly proud and excited to share that I am a finalist in the South West Wedding Awards as a ‘New Wedding Business’, this is an amazing opportunity for so many local business’ to just get their names out there and hopefully network and collaborate on future projects.
I feel I have come a long way in such a short space of time and to even just being in the finals is such an incredible feeling that I did not think I would have a year ago, I love my camera, I love my job, I love the weddings and I love the people….best job in the world!
I have had a brilliant year meeting so many new faces so this feels like an amazing end to 2017, and best of all we get to dress up and look fabulous for the award night in January 2018! I will keep you posted…
