The Sampsons’ Studio Shoot

This family shoot was great fun, and little Amelia just 5 months old, was simply adorable and incredibly smiley, as were I have to say the parents!  Here is a sneak peak at some of the pictures!

 

Lindsay & David’s Wedding Day – New Forest

On this beautiful sunny Thursday morning I started the wedding photography coverage for Lindsay and David Pattison at the Lime Wood luxury country house hotel, which is a stately manor offering a natural setting in the middle of nature, so wonderfully perfect for today’s wedding celebration.  I met Lindsay in the bridal suite, which is set at the end of a rectangular pond, surrounded by trees.

And so started the wedding day story…..The details, the colours and the setting made for such creative photography.  After the ceremony I whisked David and Lindsay away for some romantic shots and then returned for group and candid photography…. family and friends were so welcoming and beaming with smiles and laughter, which I had great delight in recording.

The evening’s surprise was the amazing first dance by the newly weds, it was just breathtaking, and then walking up beside then, was James and Ola from Stictly Come Dancing. Family and friends then joined in for a few private classes with the celebrity dancers.  The photographic opportunities were plentiful throughout the day, with this being the icing on the cake.  I finished the coverage with a few night shots of The Lime Wood, which perfectly turns the last page of the day.

Here are some of the shots from the day…

Maritime Media – Cinematic Screen – Commercial/Corporate

My task today was to take photographs of Maritime Media’s first Cinematic Screen, erected at Dickens World, Chatham, Kent.  They required pictures of the large screen to be photographed at various times during the day, which was achieved.  A few corporate shots were also taken.
