A few snaps from Sams wedding preps

It usually takes as long to get into the wedding dress as it does to say "Do you take.....I do...I do!"

It's been a long time.........

Apologies for not keeping you posted, we have been up to our necks in work, which is good, don't get me wrong. Something has to give and it was the blog, so here are a few catch up images. I've been on another course, you never know it all and it's good to get a different slant on things to keep you fresh. So a big thank you to and especially Dark Daze and Sally for the session the other day where I went to brush up on studio lighting.

People say the nicest things!

Here's a few more pictures of recent weddings we've covered and another letter of thanks from a very happy client. At present we are attending wedding shows so if you'd like to meet us we are at Oatlands Park in Weybridge this Sunday 27th September and Sandown race course the following Sunday. Please contact us for more information and directions. Despite the recession...Opps, sorry, credit crunch! Our bookings are up on last year which hopefully means we've got the right balance of coverage and service. Thanks, Mark.

Is there anybody out there.............
We had a rush trip to China, ate toooo much, and sweated buckets in 35 degrees + 90% humidity. No sympathy........... Oh well. We finished the assignment and came straight back to the UK hitting the ground running.
Here's a few boring pics, none of the actual work as we're not allowed to put it on line, never mind!
Hope your all well and look forward to seeing you at the weddings or shows. Mark.

Here are a few images from the last wedding we covered. Hopefully you can see how we taylor our shooting style to reflect the expectations of our clients. This week we are covering another wedding and then covering a three day fashion shoot, then we're on assignment in China for four days in Guangdong provence. We'll put up some pics on our return.

What a fun and busy couple of weeks we've had, so much so that it's difficult to find time to up date the blog....Not that we have anything really interesting to say, we let our pictures do the talking. Some fantastic couples, great weddings and more on the way. These are a few from last weeks events. Thanks for having a look.

Another week and where's summer?

This past week has been really busy, two more weddings and a studio shoot for Dean & Jade. Fantastic couple. Here are a few of their session shots.

Thought of the day. "Until you decide that nothing will stop you from achieving your goals.....Everything will"

Where have you been?

Apologies, faithful blog readers........

We've had a hectic couple of weeks, as it's full on wedding season. That said I never get to write much any way. Strange really, as I once took a week off on a Greek island to start writing a book, got four chapters in and shelved it!

On a different note, if your thinking of getting married, call or email us and automatically you'll qualify for a free studio photo shoot. Yes FREE. Of course we'd like you to select our wedding services, but there's no pressure, we feel confident that after spending an hour or so having fun in front of the camera you'll want us to cover your wedding day. All shots taken will be displayed on your own page at

Right off to work now....have a good week. Mark.

A Day at the Races

Well, the title's a bit of an exaggeration, I had an assignment for a client at a race meeting and took the opportunity to click away at the horses.....It was then I realised I was no longer in my comfort zone. Still, live and learn.

Well no one can complain that we've not had a summer this year! Well apart from me, I prefer it a tad coooooler, especially when running around with cameras and working in the studio with the modeling lights a blaze, doing a good impression of induction heaters....Phew!

This past week we've been working hard with new clients, one a high end fashion design company, the shoot is on for next week, and another company producing holistic massage oils. That shoot will be interesting, and fragrant.

It's full on wedding season now so each week we're out and about making sure we bag those memories for all our clients. So TTFN. Mark.
