Up today on the blog, a new venue for me, the stunning Pendrell Hall in Wolverhampton!

Eloise and Matt were married earlier this year in a rich jewel tones styled wedding with celestial elements incorporated into things like their globe cards box, and moon place holders on chair backs for the meal, I do like weddings with DIY touches!

Thank you to Lianne Foye for second shooting with me on this one!

Dating Profile Photography Midlands DerbyshirePINIMAGERyan got in touch with me recently looking for a portrait photographer.  He wanted someone to help him with some natural photographs to represent himself with online and on his dating profiles because he felt he ‘couldn’t photograph himself at all’, something I think a lot of people would relate to!

“At first I was nervous, I didn’t know what to expect as I had not done it before. However I was quickly introduced to it and thoroughly enjoyed myself! …They are brill thank you!”

It’s refreshing that more and more people are investing in their online profiles to meet people, it shows that they are taking it seriously, and why not put your best self out there rather than a quick selfie shot that doesn’t represent yourself and your energy?

He had commented on saying he struggles with taking a natural looking smiling shot of himself so we made sure to get lots of those, and I feel like we achieved it, no awkward smiles here! I’m happy to report that since updating from the old rather serious faced selfie to Ryan’s new shot representing his real personality he’s getting ‘plenty of likes flooding in’!

Here’s a mix of shots from his session…

Prices start from £175 for a 1 hour profile photography session on location.  For more information just get in touch!

Last year I had the pleasure of being invited to be involved in the production of a documentary following upcoming snooker star, Stan Moody, for CBBC.  Produced and directed by Ben Field of the Format Factory. I covered unit stills, gallery stills for iPlayer, and behind the scenes photography!

We filmed up in Stan’s home town of Halifax and I joined them for a slightly snowy day up in Yorkshire at Levels snooker club, Huddersfield, before a few more shots at their family home in the evening of Stan and his Dad, Nigel, having a watch of one of Stan’s favourite players, Judd trump.

Checkout the documentary here – Taking My Shot on iPlayer

Shoutout to the rest of the team, Ben, Ash, Arthur and Dan and of course Stan, Nigel, and Noel, it was lovely to work with and meet you all! (Also to Nigel’s Mum for looking after us with cuppas at the house!)

I’ve got a super cute past wedding to show you all today courtesy of the lovely Polly and Gareth!

They were married at the stunning local Derbyshire venue of Ilam Hall in Ashbourne.

It would be lovely to shoot more Derbyshire weddings, it’s such a beautiful part of the country and I’m very proud to have it as my adopted home!

Their styling and crafting (check out those huge paper flowers!) for decor fit the space perfectly, as did the colours in Polly’s beautiful gold lace dress which she teamed with some offbeat bride favourites, Irregular Choice!  The natural earthy tones and flowers around the venue all fit the historic space in such an elegant-with-a-touch-of-quirk fashion.

Elegant with the best amount of quirkiness is probably how I’d describe Polly too! (Bloomin’ love her trying-to-get-the-ring-on faces).  All the best people aren’t afraid to show some of their quirkiness in their wedding! Also one of the smiliest brides ever.  I knew after their engagement shoot at tropical birdland  that the bride and groom to be were going to be such fun to be around and I absolutely loved being a part of their wedding.  I’m so happy for them to have recently welcomed their first child too!
