Pre-wedding shoot Greenwich

Outdoor Family Portraiture

Greenwich is my home borough, and it has been pretty much since I moved over here from Ireland 18 years ago! You’d think I’d be used to it by now but no, every time I walk through this town, the park and the grounds of the Old Royal Naval college (where I attended university!) I still have to pinch myself. So much history and so much beauty in such a small area.

So when clients get in touch and say they want a shoot here I am delighted! I’m even more delighted when they ask me to shoot their wedding. That’s what Martin and Emily did, they got in touch to enquire about my wedding availability and booked a family session at the same time. They’ll be getting married in St Alfedges Church and celebrating in the Cutty Sark afterwards, I cannot wait to capture their day.

For their family session we we met in town and had a wander. There are so many lovely photo opportunities in Greenwich. Although none  of them as beautiful the family I’m shooting. For me it’s all about them, I could be hooting anywhere, although as long I can create a space where the family are comfortable, relaxed and enjoying themselves, I’m happy! This way we get the photos that you can see throughout my website. Family photos full of joy, laughter, and emotional connections. The shots below are no different. I hope you enjoy them. If you like what you see and would like me top photograph your family this summer then please do get in touch, I’d love to hear from you. Oh and if you’re getting married or know someone that’s getting married to check out my wedding website .

Golden Wedding Anniversary Portrait Session

Golden Wedding Anniversary Portrait Session

Golden Wedding Anniversary Portrait Session 

Italian born Londoner Silvia booked a session with me back in January. Her parents and sister Paola were visiting from Italy and Silvia wanted to capture some photographs of them. It’s her parents Carlo and Laura’s Golden Wedding anniversary soon and she wanted to present them with a really special portrait. Along with that they thought it would be nice to have some more relaxed shots of them having a stroll through their favourite London Park.

I was more than happy to meet them for a photography session, despite the fact I speak no Italian! Turns out language is no barrier when you have a decent sense of humour and are open to having a bit of fun! These guys definitely had the right attitude. They were not fazed by my random requests, and they even danced a stunning waltz for me in the middle of the park. It was truly magical.

My absolute favourites are Carlo and his daughter Paola dancing and the ‘special’ portrait, which you can see at the end of this blog post. It’s not my usual style but just perfect for a golden wedding anniversary present. I’d delighted to present my favourites from the shoot and I hope you’ll leave a comment of congratulations for the happily married couple below.

If you’d like to book a session like this, do get in touch. I’d love to hear from you.

Dulwich Family Photographer

Kicking off the year with a family session in Dulwich, no room is left out when it comes to shooting in your home. As the kitchen is the central hub to most homes it’s only right we take some shots in there too.

Freja turned 1 on the day of her second portrait session with me. This birthday photo session started off outdoors but it was freezing so we took shelter in The Maritime Museum. I got down on the floor with her and grabbed this shot as she flew over to me on her hands and knees.

When you tun up to a photo session and both parents are musicians, I couldn’t leave without hearing a tune…

We took a stroll soon after the spontaneous family gig and this happened. I love the movement and textures in this shot

W5 newborn photographer London

Easily, one of my all time favourite shots, not just from the past year. The intimate connection here only happens when everyone lets go, forgets why they’re there and just embraces the moment. The squishy baby face, the protective arm, the tender kiss, the doting look. I can’t ask for anything more in a family photo.

Photographer in Greenwich

I’m better known for being a family photographer in Greenwich and around London but that’s not all I do, I’ll happily do head shots, events, product shots or even a lovely couples photo session. Carolina got in touch as she’s getting married to her sweetheart Michael this year. They wanted some beautiful images to use for their save the date cards. I was more than happy to oblige! Well, I had as much fun as I would on any family session with these two. Although they both live in London town, they hail from Portugal and South Africa. They wanted their images to be taken in a part of the city that they love, and who doesn’t love Greenwich?!

I’m sure you’ll join me in wishing Carolina and Michael the very best wishes for the future.

Why not have a quick flick through the other couple shoots I have done…

Angus and Jenni's Mid-Summers Day Wedding in Stoke Newington {London Wedding Photographer}

Angus and Jenni’s wedding day was a perfectly relaxed affair on Mid-Summers Day. To start the weather was just beautiful for them, I had a lovely stroll around Clissold House and St Mary’s Church to get the first shots in this set and as you can see the skies were blue and sun was splitting the trees. The bride and Groom both prepared for the wedding in the boutique guest house The Rose and Crown, which has some of the best wallpaper I ever did see adorning the walls!

After the emotional ceremony everyone headed across the road to Clissold House, where they were met with Champagne and canapés. Everything went incredibly smoothly and the food was just divine. So with a bit of a twist, after the wedding breakfast, instead of dancing the night away the bride and groom, after an emotional goodbye,  hopped in a vintage beetle and made their way to the airport where a plane was waiting to whisk them off to New York for their honeymoon.

Pre-Wedding Shoot The Orangery at the Turkey Mill in Maidstone {London Wedding Photographer}

Emily got in touch with me as she seen some of my work on Facebook. She knew I was mainly a family photographer but she got in touch as she liked the style of photos on my page and website. It just so happened that I had planned to build my wedding portfolio this year so great timing! We met and had a lovely chat over a cup of tea in her beauty salon in Plumstead. She told me all about the preparations for her and her husband to be Des’s big day. We arranged to meet at the venue for some test shots and boy am I glad we did. These two rocked the camera and the camera loved them! Here are a few from the day. I am so excited about their wedding in May and adding more images to my wedding portfolio. By the end of the year I should be offering complete wedding packages so watch this space!

Here are a few of what we got…hope you love them as much as I do!
