The Wedding Report: more couples are hiring non-pros to shoot their wedding A research study about wedding photography held last December states that over 50% of the brides considered the professional photographer and the uncle to be equal. These are the exact words used to depict a situation that needs to be considered in order to reassess the industry. It’s not true that all photographers are the same. Our competitors simply mimicked our books, and marketed low level products, in many cases offering directly to the end consumer. The question is - Would you let an amateur carry out important work on your house or your car? If not, then don't let an amateur photograph one of the most important days of your life.

Natasha called me to ask if we could do a Graduation Shoot for her and accompanied by her extended family, to which I replied yes! What I didn't realise was we'd have sooo much fun photographing the graduation shots as well as the fun family shoot afterwards! Here's a few to give you a taster..

And finally for August.. I have the privilge to photograph Minna and Nevilles fantastic 3 day wedding last weekend! Minna and Neville are one of those couples who you can look at and tell how much they are in love with each other - The chemistry is unbelievable! Following the Indian traditions, Minna and Neville got married on the 26th August in the Sri Guru Singh Sabha Gurdwara in Derby in a traditional ceremony. The ceremony itself is very spiritual and can lead to there not being a dry eye around the hall, and then jubilation once the couple are married - Luckily for them, I caught every moment on camera! We then departed the Gurdwara for the reception, which was held at the understated yet beautiful Alrewash Hayes which is an elegant Grade 2 listed Queen Anne residence in the heart of rural Staffordshire. With contemporary and period furnishings, a beautiful enclosed Courtyard Garden and Five star boutique style accommodation Alrewas Hayes provides luxury for any wedding or event whatever the occasion. www.alrewashayes.com/ Also, I'd like say a big thank you and it was an absolute pleasure working alongside Barry and Tracey at Midway Media who are based in Derbyshire and also Raaj Shamji - The Modern Asian Toastmaster who kept the guests highly entertained and energised! www.midway-media.com/ http://mcraaj.com/ Here's a snap from Minna's Mehndi..
