Krystle and John were an absolute pleasure to work with for their engagement session which we did at the Fire Station that he works at and at the Mustang drive in theatre where they first met. I've posted way too many photos for this one but it was really hard coming down to just these so I'll let them speak for themselves, except that I can't wait to see them again on their big day next year!

Well here I am sharing the last of the shots I took on our first visit to the Chelsey, and just in good time as I'm currently editing the shots taken form the latest round of portraits! Last monday at the Awesome London pitch night I announced that 10% of all sales from portrait sessions will go towards the project. So if you would like to book and get some great portraits as well as helping us to visit more homes, please contact me!
Germaine said she had a lovely time and enjoys having her makeup and hair done but couldn't remember the last time having a portrait taken. Her lovely pink earrings and flower brought in that added bit of colour to her already great choice of colour dress for the photos.
When we visited the Chelsey the second time Marylin told us that she liked the whole experience so much that she wanted to do it again, but understood that we would like to give as many different people a chance to do it.
Another participant was the lady above who we actually photographed in her own home. She was very interested in learning about how to apply the makeup and still keep a natural look. She, like many others told me that she doesn't take a good photo but I think that with that twinkle in her eye we came up with something nice for her to share.

Joanna and Jordan were married on a beautiful friday in May and what better setting than the lovely Springbank Gardens! I loved that they wanted to do a 'first look' with doing the photos before the ceremony which worked well not only for saving time between the ceremony and reception but also because it started raining during the ceremony which was held at the London Citadel church. The Civic Gardens Complex is now one of my favourite places to shoot, especially as they have the backup of having the greenhouse available (which came in very handy with the rain) . We added an extra bit of fun with using some film- instax minis (Polaroid type instant prints, but smaller) and using my 360 spinner camera.
