Afternoon tea photography

Most of my work is wedding photography, portrait photography and property photography, and I love each aspect equally. However, I do like it when I get asked to do something different!

This was a fab shoot for Ursula's Kitchen, a catering business who specialise in afternoon teas, cakes and grazing platters for weddings and events. I was asked to photograph the afternoon tea in my studio against a white backdrop, and do some overall shots and close ups, showing not only the food, but also the beautiful crockery and tea sets which are available for rent. It was a really enjoyable shoot, as it allowed me to use my creative side, placing the food in different ways, and using various lovely pieces to show it on. The colours were amazing (as were the smells!) and I was really pleased with the vibrancy of the images. I love the way the details are shown, with a suggestion of more things fading out behind the main image.

So while product photography and food photography are not my usual line of work, I love to do to it, and this job was really enjoyable. Especially as I got to eat the food afterwards!

Wedding Photography - details of the day

Wedding photography is my greatest passion when it comes to my job, and I am so lucky to be involved in so many lovely happy days!

My style is very natural and informal and whilst I am happy to capture group shots, I never let them take over the day. I spend time with each couple getting lovely artistic yet natural shots of them, and I also allow time to capture the informal candid moments. It is also important to get shots of the lovely details of each day, so the couple can remember the little touches that made their day unique forever.

Bridal preps start with set up shots of the dress, shoes, flowers, jewellery etc, and I think this is a perfect way to start the day. Then I move on the groom and his party, and capture button holes, cuff links, shoes etc. Throughout the day I am always looking out for those special details, such as signs, pillar boxes, table decorations, favours, bunting ...

Details of the day are what makes each wedding unique and make sure I capture as many as I can on each lovely wedding day.
