      It’s been a while since I put fingers to keyboard as it were so time to remedy that with a short dog photography post. Although we have done sessions involving dogs before they have been outside in natural light. We wanted to learn more about using artificial light with dogs. So it was that we…

          What will make your wedding unique ? A question many brides puzzle over every year as many popular venues will all look the same for each wedding.

            Almost every little girl starts planning her wedding day subconciously as a child. Her day as a princess. As that little girl gets older she plans walking down the asle or into the ceremony room on the arm of her escort. Traditionally that scene is played out in front of the wedding photographers camera to…

                    What time shall we book our wedding for?  An odd question you may think. When you go through your wedding planning an often missed question is, “will there be enough light for the photographs that we want after the ceremony?” For example at this time of year in the Midlands it is dark around 4…

                                      You charge HOW MUCH?

                                      A regular thing that wedding photographers have to deal with is peoples inability to realise what is involved financially for a photographer to take care of their wedding. The same people will pay £60 per hour to their garage to have the car fixed without batting an eyelid. All businesses have expenses for insurance, accountants…
