Lucy and Ian’s Lyme Park Wedding – Sneak Preview!

Weddings | 16.09.2011

Can I get a reeeee-post?! Apologies – this post seemed to have disappeared from my blog a few days ago (some nonsense from my web guys about a server crash and their back up system – boooo!)

So, I shall try my best to write what I wrote the first time!

I started off in the morning meeting Lucy and the girls at Lucy’s Mum & Dad’s house which was a picture of calm…

Lucy and Ian’s Didsbury Pre-Wedding shoot – Sneak Peek!

Pre-wedding | 07.09.2011

I spent a great night with the very lovely and gorgeous Lucy & Ian meandering around Fletcher Moss Park in Didsbury and finishing off with a cheeky beer in The Didsbury Pub talking about all the exciting details of their wedding (of which there are many!)  Lucy and Ian get married this Saturday and are having what promises to be an amazing reception at Lyme Park in Cheshire – can’t wait!

Here’s a little preview of what we shot last night…

I loved how up for it Lucy & Ian were – really chilled out and happy messing around and having a bit of banter, but absolutely brilliant at the moody stuff!  If we hadn’t run out of light, I’d have kept them out there all night!  I LOVE these two shots – the mood, the atmosphere, the eerie blue light – awesome stuff!

And what better place to finish up than in the pub?!?!

Lyme Park and Bowstones on the IPhone

Weekends | 15.02.2010

Just a very quick blog of a shot I got whilst out walking with my family up at Bowstones and Lyme Park in Cheshire yesterday.  It was a gorgeous morning, started out very bright and cold and gradually the sky got moodier and moodier.  This image is the view from the bench (where we were resting!) right next to Bowstones, looking down towards Whaley Bridge, Disley, that sort of area.

Taken on the Iphone 3GS which isn’t renowned for having a particularly great camera function on it, I’ll certainly be using it again in the future when the SLR isn’t to hand (although I don’t think I’m quite ready to start shooting weddings on the Iphone yet!)

I have obviously done a little bit of processing, some dodging and burning to bring out the detail in the sky, I’ve desaturated it to give it an even more moody feel and I’ve added some digital ‘noise’ which is the similar to the grain effect you would get with film.

Pretty nice for a camera phone shot though?!
