Zoe & Mark are an awesome couple – great fun to be around and getting married at one of my absolutely favourite venues, the stunning Styal Lodge in Cheshire. I spent a few hours with them at Lyme Park in Cheshire for their pre-wedding shoot and we got some great stuff. Here’s a little sneaky peek…
Mark does an awesome ‘mean and moody’!!!
Really great to catch up with you this week guys – can’t wait for your big day to come round!
GREAT afternoon with the very gorgeous & lovely Selina & Mike today up at Lyme Park! A beautiful, blustery autumnal day (Selina was very brave with her hair!) – perfect for an afternoon strolling through Lyme Park’s magnificent setting.
Here’s a little peek, hot off the press…
How properly gorgeous are these two?!?!?
I really can’t wait for Selina & Mike’s big day up at the amazing Heaton House Farm – it’s going to be ace!
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…
Lucy had brought the coolest pair of Gina shoes with her for a ‘shoe change’!
How depressingly gorgeous and good looking are these two?!?!
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?!?!
Great work last night Lucy & Ian – can’t wait for Saturday now!
Yesterday afternoon I met Sam & Aaron in ‘Pride and Prejudice country’ at Lyme Park in Cheshire. It was an absolutely beautiful afternoon – short sleeve weather! Here’s a little taster of what we shot…
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.
