Lifestyle: Emmie

A few weeks I had the absolute pleasure documenting Emmie. Emmie is the little girl of one of my lovely couples who are getting married next year. I love love being asked into peoples lives to do this. I love seeing more of their lives, their relationships and the love they have for their favourite people.

Emmie is a little beauty and it was nice to spend some time with her, big brother Rhoan also got in for a few pictures. Here are a few of my favourites.

I am totally digging black and white at the minute as well… if you can’t tell.

Photography Workshop: Photograph your craft.

When I go online, look through magazines or go into shops I am a sucker for great style and design. When items or  anything is displayed in a way to get your attention, you are so much more likely to purchase, or click through to someones site. Just take Pinterest as an example. You are so much more likely to pin something that catches your eye and  probably continue on to someones site if the styling and images are good. If you shop on Etsy, the well presented items tend to make you think that they are the better purchase options. Am I right? So why should we not apply these proven methods to our own products?

If you create your own items and want to sell them, using simple lighting techniques and shooting approaches can make them so much more sellable – and who doesn’t want to sell more?!

The sewing session, photographing your craft

On 12th October I will be running a photography  morning workshop at The Sewing Sessions base. The course is only £35 and it will cover a range of topics to help you create better images, such as:

* Different types of light and their advantages

* How to use your available light

* Styling tips

* How to create basic backdrops

* How to save images and resolutions for web size use

* Rule of thirds

* How to shoot your craft for you client and make your craft more sellable

* A basic guide to editing

The course is only for the morning but will be packed with super helpful information and tips to take photographing your images to the next level. Even if you only use an Smartphone, you will pick up handy hints.

If you would like to book your space be quick, there are only 8 spaces available and you can book through The Sewing Sessions website here.  

Looking forward to seeing you there.

A mini break away.

If you ever extend a casual invitation for us to join you on holiday, be warned, there is a very strong chance that we will. Getting on a jet plane and travelling  anywhere is one thing that me and Jim love to do. We love it even more when our destination has some of  our best friends waiting for us.  Last Tuesday we went to Spain and joined our amigos for the last few days of their holiday. Yes – you could say we gate crashed.Calella-5 Calella-6 Calella-7 Calella-10

Jim and Laura actually spent quite a few years holidaying here together as kids. Their parents have been friends since before they were born. It was nice for us to share the memories from their years before, at the same time creating new ones of our own. Having time off is fabulous anywhere, but add people who you love into the mix with blue sea and sun drenched days and things just become that much sweeter. Calella-9 Calella-11 Calella-3 Calella-2 Calella-14 Calella-17 Calella-16 Calella-25 Calella-13

I am a big lover of travelling and seeing new places, but this little beauty is a place I know that we will return.  Calella-20 Calella-19These 3 faces make me smile. I am thoroughly blessed to be able to laugh, joke, make memories and experience life with them.Calella-21 Calella-23 Calella-28 Calella-24

Fish Feeding  – the highlight of every day. Calella-27 Calella-35 Calella-30 Calella-34 Calella-33 Calella-37 Calella-36 Calella-40 Calella-41 Calella-43 Calella-44 Calella-47 Calella-48 Calella-50 Calella-51 Calella-52 Calella-54 Calella-55 Calella-56 Calella-58

On the last day our lovely hosts kicked us out early doors (they had a flight to catch before us). Before sunrise early doors. It turned out to be quite actually because we got to watch the sunrise.  Me and Jim spent the morning at the beach and then did the little coastal walk to the next town Calella-59 Calella-60 Calella-62 Calella-63

I think that its brilliant that we only  live a 2 hour flight journey from places like this. It makes going more frequent easy ;-)

The Grays Court Hotel Wedding: Nick & Louise

This past weekend I had the absolute pleasure of documenting the wedding of Nick and Louise, or Lou Lou has she is better known by. From start to finish the day flowed with immaculate details, prettiness, happiness and lots of love. Louise is a girl with a big heart. She loves her family and friends dearly, and after spending a day with them all I know that this feeling is mutual.

I started the day with team bride over at Louise and Nicks house. The house was as it should be – full of happy! I love being around the girls when they get ready. It’s always so much fun. The music is on, things are being borrowed, laughs are being had- and the bubbly always flows well. Grays hotel York,Leeds Wedding Photographer;Wedding photography Leeds, Stylish wedding photography, Yorkshire wedding photography

Lou’s house was perfect for the preperation pictures, it was airy and light and every room was such a beautiful space.  Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-21 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-4 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-5 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-6

I knew that Louie’s day was going to be stylish and expected nothing less when I saw her Jimmy Choo’s and Pronovias dress.  Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-9 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-10 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-13 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-16 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-17Twigs supplied the day with stunning flora. Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-22 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-27

Lou’s friend Sanya did her make-up for her and did an amazing job. It was perfect all day, as was her hair by Lauren Woodham.Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-19 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-18 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-25 Grays hotel York,Leeds Wedding Photographer;Wedding photography Leeds, Stylish wedding photography, Yorkshire wedding photography Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-30 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-29 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-33

I always imagine how exciting it must be. To actually put on your gown for your day, after having it for so long. When Louise stepped into hers she looked beautiful.

Nick and Louise  both grew up in the village so it was quite special that they should get married at the village church as well. It was made even nicer by the fact that one of Louise’s best friends father married them both. Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-63 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-64 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-65 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-67 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-68 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-69 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-70 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-80 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-81 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-82 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-85 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-86 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-87 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-88 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-89 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-90 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-91

One off my very favourite things about the wedding breakfast was the long table. I loved it. It was setup simply, but with elegance. What can be nicer than looking up and down your table at your wedding and seeing all the faces  you love.

Nick and Louise, thank you!!! Thank you for a brilliant day from start to finish. It was effortlessly chic and was packed with love and plenty of laughter. I hope you are having an amazing time in Italy.

Graze Mille!

The Tempest Arms Wedding; Adam & Emma

A few weeks ago I had the utmost pleasure of documenting Adam and Emma’s Wedding. Even though I was there for only a few hours it was long enough to  see how Adam & Emma are totally together. In love & blissfully happy. It was also evident to see just how much every single person that was so happy for them.  They had an intimate wedding at The Tempest Arms, a beautiful location nestled in North Yorkshire.  After walking down the aisle together & exchanging vows they joined their friends and family in the sunshine and sipped prosecco. All the while laughing and having a truly fabulous time

Mottram Hall Wedding: Ian & Nicola

A fabulous couple. Sparkly shoes. Plenty of sunshine and the amazing grounds of Mottram Hall. A wedding day with plenty of fun.

This  past weekend I travelled to Mottram Hall to join Ian & Nicola and watch them say I do. Me and a whole bunch of their family and friends, cheering them on and helping them enjoy becoming Mr and Mrs Firth!

I started the day with the girls, prepping for the day. Hair being done, champers being popped, makeup being applied and all the other good stuff that goes on when you get a group of best friends together.Ian-&-Nicola-Blog Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-161 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-2 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-3 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-4I always know that I’m dealing with like minded  girls when I turn up and these are the days shoes. Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-5 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-6 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-7 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-8 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-9 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-10 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-12 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-13 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-15 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-18 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-17 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-19 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-20 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-21 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-22Nicola, Nicola, Nicola.

But mainly because Nicola and her Dad NEVER cry. But just here, that changed. Even if just for a moment. Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-30 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-31After having some fun with the girls it was nearly time for the ceremony, so I headed on down to meet our man of the day…. Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-33…. who I found with the best man, armed with a hip flask each sipping bourbon. Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-35 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-37 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-36 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-32 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-38 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-40 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-44 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-43 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-42 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-45 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-46 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-47 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-49 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-48 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-50 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-51 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-52 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-53After these two lovelies became Mr & Mrs they sipped on champagne and joined their guests in the gardens for some afternoon sunshine. Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-54 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-55 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-56 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-57 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-58 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-59 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-60 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-61 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-62 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-63 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-64 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-65 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-66 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-67 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-68 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-69 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-70 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-71 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-72 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-73 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-75 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-76 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-77 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-78 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-79 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-80 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-81 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-82 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-83 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-84 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-85Before dinner I took Ian and Nicola for a little stroll around the gardens.

That’s the best thing about staying until the evening. It gives us plenty of chance for more pictures when the light is a bit softer.Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-153 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-154 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-155 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-156 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-159 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-160 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-163 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-165Nicola had surprised Ian with a pork pie wedding cake which was brilliant.Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-164 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-175 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-176 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-179 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-178 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-177 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-180 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-181 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-174 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-172 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-171 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-170 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-169 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-166 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-167 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-168 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-188 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-187 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-186 Ian-&-Nicola-Blog-185 Mottram Hall Wedding photographyAnd this is how I left them.
