Holkham Hall Wedding Photography | North Norfolk Wedding Photographer

Holkham Hall Wedding Photographer

This beautiful wedding, at Holkham Hall on the North Norfolk coast, was a fantastic opportunity for me to second shoot with the very lovely Katherine Ashdown.  Like a lot of wedding photographers, I started to build my wedding photography portfolio through assisting and second shooting.  And while I have my own business now, taking an opportunity to be second shooter for the day is still something I love to do.  It helps keep me on my creative toes, it’s a brilliant way to grow and learn as a photographer and I get to meet some really great people, both photographers, as well as Brides and Grooms.  For the lead photographer it can help to have another experienced photographer along for the day, someone who can be trusted to complement their work, as well as bringing a little something extra to the photography. Two photographers means two different vantage points, lens choices and creative perspectives which all go toward telling the story of your wedding day.  I don’t automatically include a second shooter with my wedding packages but if it were something you would like to consider, then get in contact here and we can build a bespoke photography package that suits your plans for your wedding day.  Take a moment to enjoy the images and please feel free to leave a little comment love below. And if you haven't already booked a venue, then you can't go far wrong with this one. And if you'd like to see more from the Holkham Estate then you can take a look at this Holkham Hall Wedding too!

Norfolk | Suffolk | Cambridgeshire | UK - Wedding & Lifestyle Photography

Welcome to the first post on my new blog, a new home for my Wedding and Lifestyle Photography.  I am a Norfolk Wedding Photographer and Lifestyle Photographer but I work right across the UK.

I have been posting my photography in various different ways over the past few years but with the launch of my new website, I can finally host a blog of my own! To kick things off, I thought I’d share photography from my personal archive, taken in Cambridgeshire just a few weeks ago.  These are photographs of my own family, 3 generations thereof, having recently become a dad.

My beautiful baby girl is just over a year old now but in that short time, as good as my memory is, if it wasn’t for the photographs to look back on, I’m not sure I would be able to recall all those ever so precious memories. While I have always been passionate about the power of photography to freeze a moment in time, having a family of my own and so many memories to capture has really brought this home to me. I’m passionate about my photography because I get a real buzz capturing special moments like these.

Your family will experience many happy milestones together but these special times often go undocumented.  One thing I have learnt about having children is that time passes, at least, twice as fast (& you get five times as little sleep!). While you can't stop the clock, or, turn back time, hiring a professional photographer to undertake a family lifestyle shoot, can help you capture these memories so you can enjoy looking back on them for years to come.

You might have thought the only way to have a professional portrait taken is to stand in front of a big set of lights in a studio. Trust me, it isn't & as much as I love looking back on photographs of myself as a child, that cheesy studio backdrop always makes me cringe! Who wants to sit in a studio, when you can go to the beach, hang out at the park, or, go for a walk in the woods, kicking leaves & splashing about in puddles? Hey, the kids might even enjoy it too!

A lifestyle shoot gives you a great deal of choice over where your photographer takes your family's photographs. It allows so many more creative opportunities to shoot your story, your style. Creative studio work can be cool but for me, at least, it can't match having fun outdoors!

If you're worried about what to wear on an outdoor shoot there's no need to be. While camouflage gear is not advisable, so long as you wear something that you feel comfortable in and try to avoid anything with large logos, or, motifs, you'll be okay. Small detailed prints are fine and bold, bright colours work well. Some stripes can work but be careful when choosing them.

Family lifestyle photography is all about you and your family, your life and style. It's about having fun and getting some great images, capturing memories that you will always treasure - enjoy!
