Brides in Louboutins in Photographs

Found in 12 eponymous boutiques, 46 countries and pretty much every world-famous department store around the world: Christian Louboutins. So often the bride’s choice, the ultra-glamorous scarlet-soled shoes can be easily integrated into your wedding photographs in a really cool way.

Aren’t they fab!

Christian Louboutins

Alisa wore Louboutins for her wedding in Rome. This wasn’t just any old wedding in Rome, oh no, Gareth & Alisa hired the suite and terrace in The Hassler Hotel at the top of Spanish Steps for their reception. In fact, a certain Mr & Mrs T Cruise had hired the very same suite for the lead-up to their wedding! With all that walking up and down the Spanish Steps i.e. flashing of the soles, Louboutins were a great choice!

I love this shot of Alisa showing off her shoes. This fabulous room is the lobby of the Grand Hotel Plaza in central Rome. You have to see it to believe it.

Then there’s showing the Louboutin soles off in a slightly less subtle way! Richard & Rachel got married at Tenuta di Lupinari in Tuscany – a gorgeous day, a gorgeous couple and now great friends of ours too :-)

How it is even possible to walk in 5inch + heels is beyond me however, apparently, everyone who wears them tells me that Louboutins are in fact very comfortable. So go for it – give me the challenge of getting that red sole into your wedding photographs!

Baby Isla

I photographed a lovely family a few weeks ago – Gareth (Daddy), Andrea (Mummy) and Baby Isla. It was a really cold day but we got wrapped up and went out into the garden for a while. Isla was so placid and chilled out that I managed to get lots of lovely images in a very short time.

Daddy got smiles in the end! Isla was happy, content and chilled out but not so keen on smiling for the camera – lol!

Baby Isla

Don’t you just want to grab those chunky cheeks and give ’em a good old squeeze!

Having photographed mainly weddings for the last 6 years, I’m really starting to get into the Family Portraiture side of things. Equal to a wedding, moments in our childrens’ lives are one-offs or very short-lived and they must be captured. Only this week my daughter Chenin started blowing kisses – get the camera out quick!

I’m in the UK between the 30th of November and the 5th of December (inclusive) with some time to spare for Family Portrait sessions. I have a brochure that I can send to you that has all of my prices in it and lots of other information. The last person I sent it to cried when she read it!

Please email me. xxx

Complete Wedding: Peckforton Castle

I reckon the best bit of advice that anyone could give you about choosing your wedding photographer would be to make sure that you have a good look through a few ‘complete’ weddings. It’s not too difficult to get together a handful of wonderful wedding photographs after taking the thousands that many do, but a complete wedding album will really tell you whether or not a photographer is right for you.

I’ve just updated my Complete UK Wedding from 2010 with Matt & Katy’s wedding at Peckforton Castle in May. So, if you’ve spent ‘forever’ looking through wedding photography websites and are getting a bit boggle-eyed, grab a glass of wine and a comfy chair then click here and ‘view slideshow.’

Can you see yourselves in these images? Drop me a line :-)

Wedding Photographer: Siena, Tuscany, Italy – Siena Town Hall & Guido Restaurant: Dave & Jo

Amy was the wedding photographer at the Town Hall in Siena, Tuscany, Italy for Dave & Jo’s wedding.

Photographing a wedding in Siena Town Hall is always a treat and having met Dave & Jo for lunch in Cortona a few days before their wedding day, I knew that this wedding was going to be great fun – it didn’t disappoint. Autumn days in Italy can be some of the best of the year – crisp, warm enough to be comfortable and that gorgeous orange light that is so complimentary. Dave & Jo have got wonderful families, a great bunch of mates and they know how to party! After Siena Town Hall, an hour or two in the Palio Bar in Siena’s main piazza (Il Campo) was followed by a fab evening in Guido Restaurant. Great atmosphere, an exceptional meal, hilarious speeches, Chinese lanterns (!) and a good old boogie – nuff said!

I struggled to select my favourites! I especially love the detail and product images – many thanks must go to the wonderful Siena wedding planner, Jacqueline Bradshaw from Marry Me In Tuscany who I always look forward to working with.

Siena!

Stunning bouquets.

Flowers

Really like this shoe shot – it’s a little different.

Shoes

Looking good Dave :-)

Groom

I really like the perspective of this make-up shot.

Bride

Look at Dave on the left-hand side of this image – it was his exact view as he saw his gorgeous bride for the first time. I love the way that one of his ushers is looking at his reaction from the other end of the room too.

Ceremony

Such a richly-coloured room.

Ceremony

Beautiful.

Bride & Groom

A gorgeous shot of Jo with her Mum & Dad.

Bride & Parents

Jo laughed all day long.

Elegant table detail – good job Jackie.

A really funny moment captured during Jo’s Mum’s speech. We thought the place was going to go up in flames for a moment or two. Lucky the Italians are pretty relaxed about these things!

Speeches

Told you the speeches were hilarious!

I really hope that I get to meet you two again. You’re a brilliant couple and I really enjoyed your company both over lunch in Cortona and on your wedding day. Didn’t we have a laugh?! xxx
