VLOG ONE

I am going to attempt to start a monthly ‘vlog’.. If it’s incredibly boring to everyone, well.. then I’ll stop! But, it’s a new creative avenue I wanted to try!
I am not great at talking to camera.. but I’m gonna try. Took me a few attempts to describe the weather in the this one (and I didn’t go into a lot of detail!).
I hope to get better.. I can only try!

Enjoy.. or don’t. KP x

Natalie and Jim – WEDDING

Natalie and Jim got married on a sunny March day at the Welcombe in Stratford.
In the morning Natalie got ready at her gorgeous home with her bridesmaids. She wore a beautiful two piece dress, Jimmy Choo’s and carried a bouquet by Gin & Flowers.
Once ready, we left for the venue and the ceremony began. Natalie walked down the aisle to the sound of Bow Belles String Quartet. The ceremony was lovely and light was perfect!
After the ceremony we took photographs in the sunshine whilst Max Butler magician entertained guests.
Once finished, the wedding breakfast and speeches began, the top table infront of a stunning flower wall by Petals in Love. In the evening guests were treated to a firework display by Halo FX Limited.

Thank you for picking me to photograph your amazing day!

Camera strap or no camera strap?

I was all for not using a camera strap. I usually hold my camera (obviously I put it down occasionally) all the time at a wedding.. I feel like it means I am constantly ready to shoot. If I see something spontaneous happen, then I have my camera in my hand ready and not flung over my shoulder. Also, I find the camera strap gets in the way and I feel a little restricted when taking photographs from above.
BUT, I get terrible neck ache. Might not be related but.. might be!

So when I got my new D810 (I was using two cameras at the last few weddings).. I put the strap on to tell them apart (the D800 and D810 feel similar in a rush!).. and I quite liked having the camera strap on. I didn’t feel like I missed any shots either. So maybe I’ll start using it and maybe I won’t get neck ache!

Any tips? I’m not really into fancy holsters to wear, I like to be simple.

P.S HAPPY EASTER

Rachel and Anthony

The story of how they met is my favourite. Anthony is from the US and Rachel from the UK, they met on a flight to Miami when they were seated next to each other.. and the rest is history. It’s like a romantic film, amazing.
Rachel and Anthony got married at Warwick House. In the morning Rachel got ready with her bridesmaids, her hair and make done by Laura and Faye from Makeup by Jodie. She wore the most adorable ballet shoes from Zara and carried a beautiful bouquet by KJ Floral Creations. Rachel looked stunning in her dress by Stephanie Allin (La Couture Bridal Boutique).
Once ready the ceremony began. Amazing pianist Okiem played while Rachel walked down the aisle to Anthony. The ceremony was so personal, such a nice touch!
After the ceremony we went outside for photographs then back inside for the wedding breakfast.
Guests could help themselves to cocktails throughout and eat american sweets! All whilst listening to the fabulous Okiem again. He is so talented.. plus he played my favourite song from Amelie!
In the evening Rachel and Anthony cut their gorgeous cake by Boutique Bakehouse and had their first dance. Then band, Last Orders, played while guests danced the night away.

It was an absolute pleasure to photograph your beautiful day. Thank you.
