Jayne and Lee Engagement Shoot

Another miracle occurred this past weekend. The sun actually came out for a while. I know that readers of this blog will likely be sick of me constantly talking about the weather, but what the heck, I live in England now… and as they say, “when in Rome.” The weather is something that is constantly on the tongues of many of the people here and I have fallen into that trap. But the weather is so very important, especially to my job.

When Jayne and Lee came to schedule their engagement shoot we set the date and Jayne said to me, “what if it rains?” And I casually replied, “well, we’ll just reschedule.” Getting into October this is easier said than done. So I am very thankful we managed to get a nice weather day, well, morning really. The rains came later on that day.

The Ashdown Park is one of my favorite places to do engagement shoots and every couple I take there is always impressed.

Thanks to Jayne and Lee for making the long trip and I hope you like your images!

Ben and Kim’s Wedding in Arundel

Well, it’s turned cooler and the skies have opened up. A very warm, glorious summer seems to be coming to an end. Which means, that wedding season is also coming to a close. And what a way to end the season. Ben and Kim were married in Arundel Town Hall in West Sussex. Arundel is a beautiful town and home to Arundel Castle, where I have visited and enjoyed immensely! The town itself is like being in a postcard. The antique shops, the twisty roads and the castle as the backdrop makes for stunning images.

Ben is an avid photographer and it was really nice having his input on exactly what he envisioned, namely, street photography style photos in and around Arundel’s high street. Being a street photographer for more than half my life I am always up for this. The resulting images are some I am very proud of.

But it was more than just street photography we created on Saturday. Arundel Town Hall is a lovely venue and I took the opportunity to fully exploit it, bringing out nearly all the tools in my arsenal; on camera and off camera flash, video lights, strange angles, floaty veils, the works.
