Steve and Maeve got married Clissold Park in Hackney, London.
It was a wonderful intimate day starting by Maeve picking up her flowers, walking down to Clissold Park and off to the pub for a drink. They went on to have a proper sit down meal too, but they only wanted photography until the after the drinks at The Rose & Crown opposite Stoke Newington Town Hall.
Thanks to pub the Florist at Green Room Cafe for letting us photograph there too.
Definitely one of my favourites weddings recently.
Joe and Melissa got married at the stunning St Martin-in-the-Fields in Trafalgar Square, London.
Before jumping on a double decker London Bus over the river Thames to Battersea.
Their reception was at The Battersea Barge on a beautiful sunny day in July. A perfect London wedding!
Here are some of my favourite photographs of the day…
Matthew and Jennifer got married at St Augustines Church in Broxbourne and had their reception at The Priory in Little Wymondley, Hertfordshire, a great venue with a beautiful big Barn and gardens. Here are a few from the day…
Such good memories from Dan and Michelle’s wedding. They completely got the whole laid back feel, here are a few of my favourites to give you an idea.
They got married at Cripps Stone Barn in the Cotswolds, near Cheltenham. A great venue and so nice to be part of it all.
Markos and Tracey’s wedding brings back lots of fun memories. They got married at St Paul’s Langleybury Church in Abbots Langley. And their reception was at The Noke Hotel in St Albans, Hertfordshire. Here are some highlights…
Here are few shots from Ben and Lizzie’s wedding from last year, one of my favourite weddings.
Here are some shots of the guys and girls getting ready at Leeds Castle in Kent before it all got started. As you can see, a pretty amazing venue!
Backing up photos on hard drives may be getting cheaper, but it’s still a hassle and long term project to keep on top of.
Here’s a free solution that you can just setup once and let it do the leg work for you…
Flickr now offers a whole terabyte of free online storage, 1TB is 1000GB so that’s a lot of photos!
By default the photos will be private, with the copyright remaining yours, so only you can see the shots.
One of the best things about it is ‘Flickr Uploadr’, which is a free little program that uploads any new shots automatically when you download them from your phone or camera. (It keeps them private by default too).
It may take a while to upload the initial batch of photos, but the will be very quick for future uploads. Even if you have your photos backed up on an external hard drive, you may as well set this up as it’s free and every time you download photos to your computer they will get backed up. It is free and from Yahoo too so it would take a fairly epic string of hard drive fails before you lost your photos!
In case you are wondering, I have more than 1TB of photos so have to use hard drives for my photos, I have back ups of back ups, spread over different locations to cover most possible disasters! I do use Flickr for the photos I take on my phone though and it works seamlessly.
In terms of price, £400 will get you a decent entry-level SLR. But if you are after something small enough to fit in your pocket, you can actually spend more than you would on a budget SLR to get something with similar quality. But a Canon Powershot is a decent compact camera at a decent price.
Another option is a Bridge camera; which basically is a SLR with a non-detachable lens. They usually have super long zoom lenses but you can’t buy specialist lenses as you are stuck with the one on the camera. These are called all sorts of things, but the one below is a ‘bridge camera’, it’s the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000.
So, in no particular order here are a mix of SLRs, bridge and compact cameras; each has a link to a review on DPReview.com and a link to Wex which is a good place to buy, but Amazon and John Lewis are a couple of other places to check for prices.
