Wedding Photography Tower Bridge London SE1

Just a handful of images from Nicole & Harry’s hugely fun, relaxed and very atmospheric wedding in the City of London last week.

Nicole is American and Harry German but they have been living in Shad Thames near Tower Bridge for a while now and decided to tie the knot London-style in one of London’s iconic venues – the North Tower at Tower Bridge, close to where they have lived during their time in the Capital. Few settings and views in London could be more memorable than those from and towards Tower Bridge – and although I was working as a wedding photographer, at the same time I felt like I was having a lovely day in London town!

Such a brilliantly fun wedding to shoot with such variety and contrast between inside and out as we moved between the bright sunshine on what was more of a hot summer’s day than a spring one, to the dark but moodily lit interior of the North Tower.  It was extra special to be able to go with Nicole and Harry out onto the ramparts at the top of the tower and shoot a few ‘just married’ photographs of them with the City, river and all those major London landmarks around and beneath us.

More images to come  soon on the blog  from this super fun, relaxed, intimate spring wedding at London’s Tower Bridge.

Event photographer Teddington TW11 – Leonora Meriel book launch & party

       2017-05-16_0010

Such a warm atmosphere and enthusiastic reception last Friday evening for the launch of Leonora Meriel’s second novel The Unity Game, published this month.

Friends, family, booksellers, local artists, writers and other good folk of Teddington London and further afield gathered in the Cooper Room upstairs at the Anglers at  Teddington Lock to celebrate the launch of this exciting new novel.

The Unity Game is set in New York with its central protagonist a New York banker who is descending into madness and he moves through the novel from ambitious hotshot banker to cold-blooded murderer and finally  to broken man seeking redemption.

Leonora gave us a wonderful taster of the book with a reading which inspired many guests afterwards to grab a copy and get it signed by the author herself.

If you’re local to Teddington you can find The Unity Game in Waterstones on Teddington High Street and of course online at Amazon.

Congratulations Leonora  –  it was lovely to be a part of this.

With your wedding coming up shortly this summer, I think this might be a rather a special year for you!

South west London baby portrait photographer – 8-month-old baby portraits in Teddington TW11

2017-05-15_0007

8 months is such a great moment in baby’s first year to capture some special photographs.  By this point, babies are lifting their heads up independently so it is easier to get all those really lovely expressions.

Sometimes they are starting to crawl as this lovely little boy now is with his own method to get from A to B –   a kind of shuffle twist!  Once they are crawling or cruising and really starting to physically explore their surroundings this is great for photographs too – especially as they are very much stop and start and not yet full speed ahead!

At 8 months, babies are really focussing and connecting as well as interacting and responding especially of course with mum and dad. There are lots of opportunities to capture moments of wonder, tenderness  and joy.

For babies at this juncture, I usually suggest that we spend at least half of the session in the comfort and ease of home. This is good for baby and parents because everything is at hand and we can create a calm relaxed atmosphere in a familiar environment. Images in and around the home also can act as strong memory triggers so I positively love to include things that will remind parents and children of the homes they lived in during their childhood. And this is another reason why it is so so much better to photograph babies, families and children in their own environment naturally rather than in an annoymous studio space.

If  you are thinking about some professional newborn, baby, children photographs and would like to find out more about how my family photography sessions work,  I’d love to hear from you. I have some spaces for sessions during the weekdays in May and June and some weekend dates still available in June and availability into the summer and summer holidays.

Please get in touch

You can also find out more about my family photography sessions here or call me on 07811 242266

For now some of my favourite indoor images from this relaxed natural and fun filled  baby photography session in Teddington TW11

In my next post I will share the outdoor part of our session in and around Teddington and the park.
