A M Y & E M M A - Sunset, skulls & lots of love!

'We have been blown away by our photos. I can not stop looking at them! Louise, your our life photographer now!!'

Amy & Emma, it has taken me an age to share these because I am still speechless about your beautiful day at Ocean Kave.

There is so much I could write about your incredible day. The love between you is beautiful, authentic and passionate. You gave me so many beautiful moments to capture that I need a few blog posts to share these.

Amy & Emma got married at the beautiful Ocean Kave in the height of Summer and had a full day of celebrating their love and their special day with their family. We had the most glorious weather allowing us to shoot all through the day until sunset.

They wanted to have a relaxing day with their friends and family. They had all stayed the night before to eat together and relax before their day, to come together and enjoy each others company. To also make the most of the stunning bridal suite at Ocean Kave which is truly luxurious.

Both Amy & Emma wore the most incredibly elegant dresses and without seeing each others they even chose something very similar as well. 

It was a beautiful day of love, laughter, tears and skull infused celebration. After their ceremony and eating we took a quiet walk along the coastal path for an intimate photo session with a mix of sunset rays and smoke-bombs (A huge thank you to Danielle from Faithful Designs who helped with the styling and braving setting off the smokes-bombs again)

Everything was just too perfect for even my words.

Thank you Amy & Emma for such a wonderful, unforgettable day.

Enough talk, check out part one of these wonderful ladies day.

C L A I R & J A M E S - Sun, Sea and Acro!

I can not even explain how excited I am with all of the clients I am working with, this year and next. I seem to have the most exciting and fun clients and I am so grateful.

Sunday started out like an other confidence shoot does. A few jiggles of a plan, some hot drinks and finding out as much as I can about a couple without sounding like a stalker. 

We had to dodge a marathon run, we walked, we chatted about squid ink and gorilla races. We sat by the sea and watched the day really flourish whilst capturing the lovely connection between Clair & James. It was a lovely start to a shoot...

AND THEN...

And then just when we were about to change location Clair & James just casually threw in that they did Acro Yoga together and blew my mind and my camera and I were buzzing.

To capture a couples love is amazing, to capture something as unique and personal as a connected yoga move... well...

Just beautiful!

Clair & James it was an absolute pleasure to meet you and get to know you both. I can not wait for your big day!

Heidi & Tim Pt 2 - Origami, Llamas and Thunderstorms

We can not thank Louise enough for the fantastic job she did of capturing our special day. Her attention to detail and passion for what she does shone through and we could not have been happier with the end result. Tim & Heidi

Tim & Heidi's wedding part 2, after such an amazing intimate first ceremony, did not disappoint at all. Visually there was so much to capture, so much emotion and fun. All of the venue dressing had been done the day before, by Tim, Heidi family, friends and even myself and my husband pitched in.

I LOVED the hand potted plants as favours for guests. Taking something home with them to remember the day that grows with love and care. Just too awesome!

(As a side note Tim & Heidi also decided to start a beautiful house plant company called Wild Home together this summer as well, joining together their passions for plants and interior design.)

ORIGAMI

The personal touches to the beautifully minimal decor extended into the ceiling decorations which saw the marquee adorned with origami animals, which were made by friends and family and sent back with the RSVPS for the invitations.

GETTING READY

The next day we were on for wedding part 2!

With a second dress and a second colour scheme, Tim & Heidi got the chance to express themselves twice.

Starting at Heidi's parents house, surrounded by her sisters and nieces and nephews was a fun, beautiful way to start the day. It was wonderful to watch them all helping each other with hair and makeup was wonderful and their hairdresser was a family friend too. Everything was so calm and close.

THUNDERSTORMS

The weather was so dramatic and looked fantastic on camera. Though we did duck into the marquee to finish their wedding blessing as the lightening struck and then the heavens opened.

SURPRISE LLAMAS

As if there were not some incredible moments to photograph as it was, a surprise petting zoo was on site for Heidi & Tim as a present because of their love of animals. It was fantastic to see all the guests holding and feeding the animals when the storm stopped and the sun came back out.

ALL ABOUT US

As with most of my couples, Heidi & Tim didn't want to be away from their celebrations for a huge amount of time. We took 15 minutes together to take a stroll, to take in the day and capture some moments of them together.

'GROUPS'

I think the day for all standing together, formal style group shots is done. For me it is anyway. I became a shadow and followed Tim & Heidi around while they caught up with their guests and captured them where they were. It meant we have versatile group shots in lots of places around their venue.

LETS REMEMBER & CELEBRATE

We had some wonderful speeches and words of remembrance and love from Heidi & Tim's special people. Along with my first thank you gift given in the speeches.

Everyone made way for the first dance and then joined in with the celebrations and party.

Even I was told to put my camera down...

Confidence Sessions! - Why you need to let me take your photo before your big day!

 Engagement Shoot, Pre- wedding shoot, pre-wedding session, couples shoot...

There are so many different titles being used between photographers around the world for the mini shoot we attach/include in our packages. One of the above, maybe others that I have not come across.

BREAK THE MOULD

As you may have noticed I am not one for the norm and something was not sitting right with me when I was talking about the pre-wedding shoot and when I was writing about it on my website. It was not encapsulating what I knew the value of the pre-shoot was for my couples. So I use a different term.

Whichever term is used all the professionals I know will agree it is an essential part of the wedding photography journey.

FUN     PERSONAL    RELAXED    CREATIVE   

Your Confidence Shoot

Why is it essential and why do I call it this?

I could write an endless article about this but lets keep it to some key bullet points...

- It is key in building in our rapport so you feel relaxed and confident having me around on your day.

I AM THE SUPPLIER YOU WILL SPEND THE MOST TIME WITH!

- It is an important part of your photography journey to build your confidence in having your photograph taken on your wedding day by me.

- You feel comfortable with me being close to you and guiding you through poses.
