One to One #photography training

Last week I spent half a day with one of my previous brides teaching her to use her new camera that her husband had recently bought her.  We had a lovely time tea drinking and walking around Waterperry gardens, Oxfordshire discussing the various modes, dials and buttons that her camera offered with lots of beautiful pictures created along the way.

Sophie left the class much clearer about how to use her new Canon camera and hopefully she will be able to put what she learnt to good use on their little boy who will be putting her reactions to the test!

I offer one to one photography training classes during the week in the local area of South Oxfordshire for anyone who wants to learn how to make the most of their camera. Please email me for more details

Here’s a little ad I put together to promote this service locally….

Sir Charles Napier Pre-Wedding Shoot

Sometimes my couples have to travel a little further for their pre wedding shoot and last Saturday was no exception. Jonathan and Nicolette flew in from Hong Kong on the morning of our meeting and we met at the renowned restaurant Sir Charles Napier near Chinnor in Oxfordshire. The Charles Napier perches on top of the Chilterns and afforded me some fantastic rural backgrounds for the shoot. Little did I know but Jonathan and Nicolette had been planning their wardrobe for some time and bought new clothes for the shoot before leaving Hong Kong.

I love the contrast  between their bright clothing and the muted colours of the English countryside. Their wedding will take place at Wycombe Abbey where Nicolette studied later in the year with their reception taking place at the Mandarin Oriental in Knightsbridge.

It’s going to be fantastic!

#Henley on Thames Pre-Wedding Shoot

Last week I had the pleasure of meeting up with Kathryn and David who are getting married later this year in Henley with a reception at Hedsor House. With their love of Henley where better a place to have their pre-wedding shoot than by the river Thames. I’m sure when they booked their pre wedding shoot for the end of March they were imagining drifts of golden daffodils and signs of spring all around. However, due to the weather in recent weeks the daffodils were a bit sparse . I still managed to get some fantastic shots of the two of them using some of my favourite locations in and around Henley.

I’m so looking forward to their big day!
