Environmental Portraits

Environmental Portraits

Out of the blue in the Autumn last year we received a phone call from Val who wanted some Environmental Portraits. We last saw Val about eight years ago. We first met Val and Matt a few years prior to that when we too pictures of  their first son Jake. Again for their son Oli and then again for their daughter Lexi!

Our conversation lasted a long time catching up on their lives since their return to the UK! Val and Matt’s family had now increased by three! Val and Matt wanted some informal environmental pictures taken of their family. A date and day was chosen and how lucky we were with the weather. We couldn’t of asked for a better Autumn day.

Portraits in the park!

Off to the park we went! What a time we had, ending up with a variety of pictures.  It was great to meet Sam and the twins, Frankie and Ben for the first time and as well as seeing the rest of the family. It was a privilege to provide Val and Matt with a book of the memories of their family.

Smeetham Hall Barn Wedding Photography – Rosie & Ross

Rosie and Ross chose the wonderful Smeetham Hall Barn, Bulmer, as their venue for their Wedding. Our day started at The Mill Hotel, Sudbury, where Rosie, her Parents and Bridesmaids were getting ready. After taking a few getting ready pictures and pictures of Rosie’s Wedding Dress and Accessories, the girls got dressed.Sudbury Wedding Photographer Whilst this was happening we had found a good area for taking a few pictures of them. This was only a few steps from the room they were in. Luckily, we didn’t come into contact with any Guests going to the Wedding! It was a good spot, we worked quickly as we had to leave to get to Smeetham Hall Barn. Suffolk Wedding PhotographerArriving at Smeetham Hall Barn, Ross was greeting a few Guests.  Once we had got all the Groomsmen together we took a few pictures of them after which they resumed their duties. Rosie arrived and after seeing the Registrars, with the Bridesmaids leading the way walked into the Barn, accompanied by her Father.

The Barn looked wonderful

The Barn looked wonderful, decorated by W.Flowers. After the Ceremony, everyone went outside and enjoyed the Drinks Reception.  The weather was lovely and Rosie and Ross were able to take full advantage off socialising and having pictures around the grounds.

Following the requested group pictures. Rosie and Ross resumed mingling with their Guests.

During the afternoon we took the Bridal Party to the lawn infant of the House for some pictures and whilst we were there we took Rosie & Ross’ ‘together’pictures.Smeetham Hall Barn Wedding Photography We rounded off the afternoon pictures with the the throwing of confetti. It was then time for the Wedding Breakfast and afterwards the Speeches. Straight after the Speeches, Rosie, Ross and ourselves headed away from the Guests to the fields at the back of Smeetham.

Jo and Keiran got in touch with us in the Autumn last year to to do some Family Photography. It was a great delight to hear from them  two years after  we saw them last after photographing their Wedding at Fennes.  Now they are the proud Parents of a baby boy called Toby and wanted us to take some pictures of them as a family and some pictures of Toby on his own.   . We had a lovely time at their home taking these pictures for them as well as meeting Toby  for the first time, he was so good! We are looking forward to seeing them again soon.

Another local company booked us to produce head shots for a presentation. These were of the key staff members and on a plain background.

Event Photography – Mayors Ball 2018

Event Photography – Mayor’s Ball 2018

Event Photography is another one of the things we do that perhaps we don’t promote enough . It was a delight to cover the arrivals at this years Ball which was a Highland Dance. There was of course a Piper and Haggis as you would expect!.

All the guests got in the mood with either highland attire or a splash of tartan.

Little Havens Children’s Hospice and Witham Operatic were the main charities supported. It was a pleasure to add our contribution from the photograph sales.

We are always delighted to talk to any group organising a formal event at which we can help.

Wedding Photographer Prested Hall for Victoria & Greg

Wedding Photographer Prested Hall for Victoria & Greg

We were delighted to be theWedding Photographer Prested Hall for Victoria & Greg.  It was a dry bright day when we arrived at Prested Hall. Preparations were taking place upstairs in Prested Hall so that’s where we started.  Everything was running well and all the girls were very relaxed and enjoying what was going on. Without hurrying, there was time to take the details and accessories pictures in between capturing a variety of getting ready pictures.

Greg was in the Apartment getting ready and we captured a few pictures of his preparations as well. Once Greg and the guys were ready they made their way over to Prested Hall where they had a few pictures taken. Greg and his Groomsmen then greeted the Guests. Once the girls were ready and Tori’s Father had come into the room to see his daughter we got on with their pictures. It was nice to have a little extra time to take Tori’s Bridal portraits, she looked amazing! Wedding Photographer Prested Hall Finishing the pictures it was time for the Ceremony. The Guests were seated in the Garden Room ready for the Ceremony, whilst Greg stood waiting for Tori to enter the room. Recommended Wedding Photographer Prested Hall

After the Ceremony

After the Ceremony Tori and Greg together with their Guests enjoyed the Drinks Reception. A short time later we got on with the requested family pictures. The sun was out whilst we took the pictures but as we were coming to the finish with the group pictures, dark clouds appeared! The Guests made their way into Prested Hall  as it started to rain, but Tori, Greg and ourselves decided to head over to the Gazebo.  Under cover we took a few of Tori and Greg’s together pictures, David got a touch wet!

The Marquee was where the Wedding Breakfast was held and after the meal we captured the moments of the Speeches. Once the Speeches were completed there was a break before the start of the evening celebrations.

The Evening

During this time, Tori, Greg and ourselves went off for a short while to take some more pictures of them and the sunset. The rain had stopped, it was a pleasant evening and we made the most of the time.
