Corporate Shoot With JoJo

Joanna rides motorbikes for a living (lucky her!!)  She approached me and asked if I could photograph her and her beautiful Yamaha R6 (stunning).  We opted for a late night shoot on a Sunday evening in Dorset.   Jo arrived and we discussed the images she wanted to capture and then we began. She was a little nervous at first but after 5-10 minutes she relaxed and was like a natural.   We did a few still portraits and some shots of the bike on its own before the fun started. Assisted by my good friend Alan, we went out to photograph Jo while she was riding her bike.  The time flew by and it was over before we knew – they do say time flies when you’re having fun!

We captured some awesome photos of Jo and her bike (below is a selection from the shoot).  I honestly cannot wait until our next shoot and to see her new bike!

My professional corporate shoots start from as little as £150, and if you have your own business then this is ideal for you.

Mr and Mrs F Get Married

I grew up with Karmen – we are the same age and went to the same school and even lived on the same road as kids.  It was an honour that Karmen and Paul chose me to photograph their big day.

Knowing Karmen so well definitely influenced a lot of giggly shots and a fun packed morning with the girls whilst they got ready and listening A LOT to Gary Barlow (I think she is a fan). Someone you might recognise in some of the photos is my sister Catherine who was a bridesmaid and is also pretty much like a sister as they are that close.

After a fun filled morning I departed to meet Paul at the Days Hotel Bournemouth.  This was a lovely venue on the East Cliff overlooking the beach. It was stunning day and super hot which meant the wedding could be held outside in their beautiful garden area.

Karmen arrived soon after and the ceremony began with plenty more giggles by the excited young couple.  Afterwards we made use of the beautiful wedding car and headed to the beach for some portraits and downtime.

I find that wedding days go by very quickly and before you know it the speeches have commenced and it’s time to cut the cake and then get ready to party. Soon after covering the first dance and a few shots of the action on the dance floor it was time to let them continue to party with their friends and family and for me to head off.

My beautiful relaxed weddings start from as a little as £750 with lots of extras to add on.

Portraits with Helena

Another great location portrait shoot, this time with the stunning Helena.  She is definitely a natural and has also won Miss Dorset 2014. Helena contacted me to update her portfolio and wanted to get a range of shots and styles. We visited a few stunning locations in Dorset and Hampshire throughout the day, even stopping for a lovely New Forest pub lunch ( we both had chicken and bacon salad).  Here is a taster of the photos we captured throughout the day.

My stunning portrait packages start from as little as £95.
