Just before Christmas last year i had the opportunity to shoot the Sheedy’s at Hyde Park. Andrea is a schoolmate so it was great to catch up and meet her family. It was going to be a stinker of a hot day so we met there early in the morning to beat the heat and apparently to catch the kids before they went ferral. I don’t know what you were talking about Andrea, they were great! . This was also opportunity to test drive my new lens, the revered Canon 70-200. It’s heavy, gaudy and cumbersome yet totally worth the effort. I’m loving it! I’ve kept most of the images in mono as requested thankfully by Andrea, i say thankfully as i have found that black and white seems to mellow out the dappled light really well.
A while ago i was invited to take photos of some friends of mine at their wedding. I’m new to wedding photography and admittedly i was very nervous about the shoot, especially on the day. Upon arrival at Bree and David’s beautiful house in the hills locality of Darlington my mind relaxed. This was the most gorgeous relaxed wedding! Bree and David are such warm friendly people and that really showed all through the day with friends and family, some from as far away as New York enduring the heat to celebrate their wedding. This shoot was a photographic journalism style of photography aiming to capture the whole day as a candid record instead of the usual posed shots. The shoot came out wonderfully and i think it really suits the wedding. Congratulations to Bree and David and thank you very much for such a great opportunity.
