“Thank you so much for these! We love them! “ I need very little excuse to head to the beach, so when Pippa and Edd asked if I’d travel from the Midlands to Devon for their pre-wedding shoot, the answer was a resounding yes! It was a meaningful choice of location as Edd grew up in that…

“…the pictures look AMAZING!! You clearly work magic with your camera!” It’s always fun to be in London – I love the hustle and bustle and I pretty much always stumble upon new places to shoot. A peek around a corner or walking a familiar route from the opposite direction often turns up little gems! Reena and Ed were…

“Hi Alex, These look amazing. Thank you so much.” I love pre wedding shoots. They often give me time to shoot at a much slower pace than I’m afforded at weddings, where often the best light for portraits passes whilst other things are happening and the allocated portrait time is sometimes much tighter than is ideal – as little…

  • Lovely work Alex, especially love the last five images in your blog post! The four black & whites are so good and suits the mood of the photographs.

    Great jobReplyCancel

  • Robin Horton

    A well written intro to a lovely group of images Alex, you used the superb light to its fullest advantage.ReplyCancel

  • Not sure why I’ve only just seen these now Alex but lovely lovely work! I especially like the last B&W frame and the one in the netting area – feel like I should probably know the technical description for this location but ‘netting area’ will do! Good good stuff!ReplyCancel

  • Wow these pictures are simply stunning! Great, great work! I especially like the composition.ReplyCancel

  • Love the back lit photos! And the tilt-shift style photo with the house is very cool!ReplyCancel

  • Lovely work alex 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Noble Option

    Really good work! Love it 😉ReplyCancel

Last week found me travelling down to Kensington in London to meet up with the lovely Zena and James for their pre-wedding shoot. Travelling and seeing new places is an aspect of the ‘job’ that I really enjoy and I love the hustle and bustle of London just as much as the tranquility of the more remote…

This was a dream of a shoot for me. I love beautiful places and so when Joss and Alex asked me if I’d travel up to the Lake District for their engagement shoot, I was super excited. Joss had already done much of the hard work for me and had scouted a couple of great…

    Oh my word, I love Derwent water and I would imagine Joss & Alex are over the moon with these.
    My fave is them sitting on the end of the jetty, shot from the boat, and the sunset shots, so talented mate, a perfect engagement shoot, I feel another award coming up.ReplyCancel

  • Awesome mate … You don’t see that much variety in an e-session very often !!!
    Totally smashed this one out the park !ReplyCancel

  • Amazing! You did the location and couple complete justice. Love the shots from the boat – Alex with oar in one hand, camera in the other, click click…ReplyCancel

  • tom humphries

    wow wow wow, I’m going to say one of the best pre wedding shoots I’ve ever seen!ReplyCancel

I’d love to say that the stars of the show in this one were Pea and Dean but lets face it, as amazing as they were really it’s all about the hat!! Deans choice came from the reasoning that “no-one has ever said a cowboy looked bad” and I have to agree – I don’t…

I love looking back on this engagement session with Harriet and Jo. Despite me taking them to what basically ended up being a boggy field in some rather inclement and unpredictable weather they were incredibly fun and easy going. I like that in people! Between dodging showers and running back to the car every five…

Engagement shoots + cold = more hugging!! And that’s a good thing! A few weekends ago, I enjoyed a walk around Birmingham City centre with Amy & Danny who are getting married at Hampton Manor later this year. It’s always nice to meet up with couples in person if possible and hear about their wedding…

It’s snowing as I look out my office window. Just as the Winter starts to feel like its dragging on and on, one of my 2013 brides posts a photo on facebook from their engagement shoot that I took last year. “Wow” I thought. “I love that photo, why on earth haven’t I posted it…

The instant I met Tom & Chantelle I just knew I had to photograph their wedding. I felt that we just ‘clicked’. It’s true that we both had a fair bit in common, such as a love for travelling, photography, music – that kind of thing, but it wasn’t really those things that made me…

A few weeks ago (before all the rain), I met up with Emma and Alex for a pre-wedding photo session at Shugborough Hall. As we strolled through the grounds, we visited a statue that Emma had actually made back when she was studying art at college. Despite a few years worth of weathering on the…

It’s always nice when someone likes what you do. However, when Jamie asked if I’d take some engagement pictures for him and his fiancé Sharnnie I was especially chuffed. You see, Jamie is a photographer himself, so as well as feeling that it was a great compliment, I must admit feeling a teeny bit of…

I usually try and accommodate all of my clients photography requests, but when Letitia and Jake asked for their engagement photos to be taken in the snow, things pretty much seemed out of my hands. It is supposedly possible to modify the weather by ‘cloud seeding’ and that did sound like great fun, but in…
