East Grinstead, as well as most of Sussex, had some of the best weather this weekend that I can remember. Well, since last year anyway.
So, like I always do when the weather is beautiful, I got out there and shot. And, like many other days when the weather has been nice, I dragged my very beautiful wife out with me and took some photos. She is my favorite model to shoot and is always up for it.
The best thing about this time of the year is the light. Spring and summer light is much nicer than winter light. The light stays out longer, and when it does go down it is a much more flattering light. A sort of orange, glowing light that makes skin tone radiate. This is why I always try and schedule my engagement photo sessions during the spring and summer even if the wedding is in December. This way we can ensure I capture you in the best light possible and you have the best images of you and your fiancÃ© possible.
I can’t wait to get further into the spring and summer seasons and especially until next month when my first wedding of the year is taking place.
Every spring, for a few weeks, the Blue Bells pop out, seemingly out of nowhere. When they’re ready, they retreat as quickly as they came. Each year I vow to capture them and almost every year I forget, or I’m not in the country. However, this year I didn’t forget and I am in the country. So, when a photographer friend of mine asked me if I wanted to accompany her on a photo shoot in the Ashdown Forest, I jumped at the chance. The theme of the day was Blue Bell Fairy. And I think we captured it quite well. Thanks to everyone who helped make these images possible.
Being a photographer in West Sussex makes it possible to easily get to these fabulous locations. I couldn’t imagine being a photographer anywhere else.
