Birdpen 2nd shoot

This was the second shoot that we did for the group Birdpen. This was such a cool shoot to do, we set off at 6am to catch the the sunrise in the New Forest. I wanted it to have a contrast to the urban location we used for the first shoot. They look pretty cool as a band and the light on that morning was amazing although it was absolutely freezing - still that's the price you have to pay for great light!

I've mentioned before that these images are for their forthcoming album, well the album case is going to have a booklet containing lyrics, some of our images, and a stack of artwork specially commissioned by a very talented artist called Jo Negus. It's going to be pretty special!

More shots to come from their amazing Paris gig.

Cynthia & Will - Pre Wedding Shoot

We met Cynthia & Will at The Four Seasons in Canary Wharf to do their Pre Wedding Shoot. They currently live in Singapore and we're visiting for work so it was great to catch them in their busy schedules. It was a bit of windy day but lovely and bright so we were able to get some great shots of the two of them. They're getting married twice this year - once in Singapore and then followed by a ceremony at Rhinefield House, unfortunately we are not photographing the Singapore ceremony but we know we're going to have a fantastic time at their wedding in England!

We look forward to seeing you both in June. Anna & Stu

Kathryn & Craig

This was one of our favourite Christmas weddings, Kat & Craig were married at St Steven's Church in Sparsholt with their reception at Lainston House. It was such a beautiful day with fantastic winter light. Kathryn absolutely loves Christmas so we made sure we captured all we could to show how festive it was including going outside at night to get some great shots of them by the big Christmas tree they have at Lainston. They also organised a big wedding party unison cracker pull! What made this wedding extra special for me was that Craig & Kat are both big Star Wars fans - as am I! We did a lightsabre cake cutting shot and all the table names where characters from the films, I thought a nice touch would also be the Darth Tater rings shot! Anna, Nate and me went away over New Year and upon our return we had a replica lightsabre waiting for us (well me!) as a thank you gift - it doesn't get any better than that!

Kat & Craig are great together and we know they will be happy for a very long time. All the best for your life together, Stu & Anna
