I'm a Camera Shy Bride, How do I Overcome my Fears Before my Big Day?

I have a huge fear of being on the other side of a camera, by that I mean the side that's in the photographs! My second shooter Theo will testify, when he wants to test out the light in a room I very quickly find a very pressing job in a room far, far away and he has to persuade an unwitting wedding co-ordinator or handy vase of flowers to help him out. Every now and then, when I don't think quickly enough he gets to work with the back of my head! (poor guy!) I hear from a lot of camera shy brides, and grooms come to that. I receive a lot of emails asking how to combat these concerns. Luckily, there are some great ways to ease your nerves before your wedding if you are camera shy, and talkin

The New Deans

The wedding of Anya and Philip Dean is one that will never fade in the memory of everyone who witnessed it. It goes without saying that weddings are all about love but these two incredible people set the bar VERY high. Westwood Church, in Coventry, was packed with all those closest to Anya and Phil. Songs of Praise had requested to film the occasion and the congregation rose to the occasion with every hymn. The fun didn't stop there... as we moved to the reception guests were to discover that, along with an open bar and hog roast, Anya and Phil had provided an ice cream van stocked full of goodies for everyone to enjoy, such a queue for an ice cream man has never been seen! We should have kn

Heidi and Mark's adventure of an engagement shoot at Hardcastle Crags

Heidi and Mark live in Kent but Mark's family live in West Yorkshire, Heidi contacted me to book a photo shoot and they hoped to combine a trip to visit his family with an engagement photography session. We chose a morning shoot for its soft, warm light and quieter location - Mark chose Hardcastle Crags as the place he'd love to have their photographs and it was perfect. Hardcastle Crags is usually very busy with walkers and picnickers so we arrived early and caught a beautifully peaceful, warm and light morning. When we had chatted on the phone to plan the engagement shoot Heidi had mentioned that they might benefit from a little extra direction to help them to feel at ease around our camer
