It’s been a few weeks since I photographed Dan & Beckie’s Clifton Suspension Bridge Engagement Shoot. Having been rained off the day before, we decided to start nice and early to beat the Sunday crowds. As a bonus we were blessed with some crisp morning light. It was close to zero, and behind the lens I was layered up to the max! That still didn’t stop my fingers turning to icicles by the end of it but it was well worth it. We walked our way over the bridge and up and around the observatory and generally had a bit of fun. Dan & Beckie are getting married later this month and I’m really looking forward to it!

Last Saturday saw me bring the camera out from hibernation over the holidays and it felt great to be back in action. Rachel & Greg wanted an urban feel to their engagement shoot prior to their wedding in April, and opted for St Werburghs which is where Greg used to live. read more
I’d suggested we head to Dyrham Park for Emma & Frank’s pre wedding shoot as it was so close to where they live, and I’m so glad they took up the offer. What a day for it, with blue skies and fluffy clouds – September has been kind! A favourite place of mine on the edge of Bristol, Dyrham Park is a National Trust property with acres of parkland, great views, a stunning mansion, and a herd of fallow deer. Awesome all round, and we made some awesome images! So much so that you’ll see a few new personal favourites of mine below. It’s such a varied place and great for taking some long distance shots and trying out different compositions with the landscape. So we spent a couple hours walking around the park, strolling up and down the rolling hills, photographed them with the deer (yay!), and explored the beautiful grounds at the back of the mansion. With some great light, stunning scenery and Emma & Frank playing their part, it really made my job feel too easy! read more
Fiona and Mark will be marrying next month at Goldbrick House on Park Street. Back in July we met up for their engagement shoot around the Create Centre near Bedminster. Even though this area is only a 10-15 minute walk from where I live, it’s not a place I’d considered exploring on foot before, having mostly seen it when passing from behind the wheel. They both like to go for walks along the river around here and I’m so glad they suggested it. The area has a semi-urban feel with loads of interesting little spots for photographs. Thankfully the rain held off and we spent a good couple of hours exploring and trying out different locations, from the lockside to the disused train line. Fiona and Mark are really easy going and good fun and I’m looking forward to seeing them again soon in September. Here are some of my picks from the day…
