Nadine & Stef (maternity portraits)

We photographed Nadine & Stef's wedding in July 2005 and they're wedding is one of our all time favourites! We had a fantastic time and they were an absolute joy to photograph, naturally we were thrilled when Nadine called to say, a: she was pregnant and b: she wanted us to capture some maternity photos. As per their wedding day these guys were so easy to photograph and look very natural together. Nadine is a very beautiful girl and she was truly glowing that day! Since the shoot the have had little baby Luka and we very much look forward to photographing the three of them!

Congratulations again guys. Stu & Anna X

Emma & Guy

We had a wonderful time at this very homely wedding in Bristol. Emma and Guy Had their wedding at the local church which is on the top of the hill and you can see it from their fantastic cottage in Failand where they decided to host their wedding reception. They wanted everyone to feel at home so the caterers brought each table a joint of beef and one person on each table had to wear a chefs hat and carve for everyone, it was a lot of fun and we were honoured to be a part of it. All of their family made us feel very welcome and it was such a lovely day, we wish you guys a very happy life together.

Abi & Geoff

Abi & Geoff are two of our favourite people and it was a pleasure to shoot their wedding earlier this year. We had great day when we shot Geoff's sister Nadine's (& Stef's) wedding a couple of years ago and we knew this one was going to be fantastic as well. It was another day of dodging the rain but fortunately the sun came out in all the right places! These guys are great together and it really shows in the photos. Have a great life together. Stu & Anna.

Helen, Mickey and Little Georgia

Here we did a wonderful portrait session for Helen, Mickey and Georgia. I used to be in a band with Mickey we both became Dad's at the same time, in fact Georgia was born exactly a week after our little boy Nate, so it was great to be able to do this shoot for them. Georgia is an absolute pleasure to photograph as she just smiles all the time. We started off with some shots in her room and then we found this disused railway workshop which was great to get some images of her crawling all over the sleepers, and the pink door with the pink hat just worked a treat!

Thanks guys see you soon. Stu

The Complete Wedding Seminar

Anna and I are to host a Discovery Day at the Annabel Williams Studio on 22nd November 07. We're very excited to be doing this as we've attended many workshops and courses at Annabel's most of which have completely transformed our photography and our business - hopefully we'll be able to do the same for the delegates attending this one day event. We've got a very exciting programme worked out for the day which is going to be focused on develeping your own personal style and then using that style to be creative under the pressures of a wedding day. We'll be discussing formulas for creating contempory images and taking a bride and groom out to different locations to show how we create our signature style images. In the afternoon we'll be editing the images in Photoshop to show how a few tweaks can create wonderful artworks that your clients will not be able to resist! I look forward to posting some of the images from the seminar. Cheers Stu

Fiona & Dale

We were very lucky to photograph Fiona & Dales wedding in the summer. They booked us last minute as they had a few problems with their photographer, and we were very pleased that they did! This was such a lovely day and a real privilege to be a part of. They went for a very classic theme with top hats, Rolls Royce's and lots of Bridesmaids, and it was a beautiful day! They were married at St Mary's church in Fratton followed by the reception at the Royal Marines Museum in Eastney. It was made even more special by the fact that they met exactly two years previous, on the train due to the foiled terrorist attacks in London, and then the following year Dale proposed at exactly 3pm so naturally the wedding was at 3 o'clock two years to the day they met. A very romantic story and a very romantic wedding - Fiona & Dale are great together and I think their photographs capture this. All the best for the future to fantastic couple and a really wonderful family. Stu & Anna X
