Family portraits: what fun! My intense period of family portraiture in the UK has produced some wonderful images.  So much so that we will be blogging them for a while as there are too many good ones to only put a handful online!  Creative flash allowed me to get something a little different, when the weather allowed, and make the most of the moody November skies.  Here are a few images from two of the sessions:

If you can see yourselves and your children in shots like these, drop us a line; it’s definitely something that we plan to do more of :) -Amy

Portraits & Wedding updates

Amy’s having a great time in the UK working on family portraits. Generally, the weather has been kind so she’s got some great stuff with impressive-looking skies as the backdrop. Once we’ve caught up with all the processing, I’ll post a few of our favourites.

We’re not far off being fully-booked for 2009 weddings now. Typically, many of the enquiries we’re getting are for dates that are either already booked or on which we’ll be travelling for other weddings – the last few bookings always seem to take a while to fill in the gaps :) If you’re thinking of booking us, please don’t be disappointed by waiting too long. I’ve written emails already this week explaining to clients that appeared keen – that their dates have now been taken. If you’re one of those reading this, we’re really sorry – as we say all along, it’s ‘first-come, first-served’, we have to be fair to everyone who is interested and there’s a genuine limit on how many weddings we’re able to shoot each year.

Ciao! – Andy

Gallery Updates

We can’t believe that we’re at the end of yet another fun-packed, photography-filled wedding season! It’s been a wonderful, busy summer and we can now look forward to our winter weddings.

Meanwhile, our web galleries have had a face lift. We’ve added more than 30 new colour images and over 20 black & white images into the respective galleries. If a previous favourite has disappeared, fear not – it’ll almost certainly return at some point. We try to rotate the images from a huge pool of photographs to keep things fresh. We don’t always pick our own favourite work either – it’s a case of trying to strike a balance and not having too much of the same type of image. Here is a taster but make sure you check them out for yourselves. -Amy
