This afternoon I am thrilled to introduce you to one of WWW’s newest sponsors; Northampton based wedding photographer Casey Avenue Photography.

Hannah captures her couples creatively; with a reportage style which captures all of those little moments you wouldn’t want to miss. I just adore the love and atmosphere in her imagery. Lets get to know Hannah…

 

Hi Hannah, could you firstly tell WWW readers a little bit about you?

 

It’s always a tough one to answer, on par with writing an “about me” page for my website, lots of umms and ahhhs pondering what the best thing to say is without sounding like a total plum! Life with two children, a husband, two dogs and my own business is organised chaos and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Photography is and always will be very important to me. I’m fortunate to be surrounded by country bumpkin beauty and never short of inspiration for my creativity. Adventures from the mini to the grand are what I work so hard for, from days out to summer roadtrips across Europe in my campervan… and of course it all gets documented, you can follow me on instagram and vimeo for said adventures.

What do you love/dislike about your job?

 

Love… I LOVE being a part of so much love. I get to use my creativity, enjoy using my creativity and get to watch other people enjoy my creativity when they see my photos. Accounts are reeeeally boring and tax returns make me weep. So much so I’m going to sandwich that little piece of bore between some more loveliness… I love the places photography can take me, from cool city pubs to rolling Sardinian countryside. Most of all I love the people. I’m an avid people watcher and could while away time taking in scenes around me, probably why photography is my calling. When I’m asked what I do for my job and I say photographer, I’m then always asked what sort of things do I photograph… I simply reply “people”. Weddings, yes, but also babies, families, pregnancy, boudoir and street photography, lots and lots of people.

How did you get into photography and into the wedding industry?

 

An epiphany had me sign up to a photography course at night college for a year whilst working full time. I set myself the goal of becoming a photographer. I have always been artistic it was high time I used my flare to do a job that gave me something that the rat race never did, fulfilment. I’m not saying it was easy because it isn’t but it was the best thing I ever did. I work more hours and earn less money but it is mine, my business, my baby and brings me more happiness then I could have imagined.

What do you aim to achieve for your clients?

 

My aim is simple… to recreate their day in images. I want them to be transported back to their wedding day when they peruse their album. I had a bride say to me recently (when looking at another of my weddings) that she felt like she knew them, that she was at the wedding. It was like music to my ears!

Becky Male Photography

I love introducing new members of the WWW sponsor family and today I am over the moon to get to know Becky Male Photography.

Becky is a wedding photographer based in Bristol who captures natural candid images of her couples and clients. I so love the fresh bright feel to her photographs, I just know you are going to adore Becky too and her tips on choosing a wedding photographer are brilliant…

 

 

Hi Becky, could you firstly tell WWW readers a little bit about you?

 

Hi! I’m based near Bristol but cover weddings right across the UK.   I live with my husband and our beloved moggie, Frank. I have recently become a Mummy to twins, Caspar and Poppy! I’m passionate about photography and have been fortunate to shoot weddings for some fab couples, all very unique but whose desire for beautiful, natural photographs matched mine.

What do you love/dislike about your job?

 

Essentially when two people get married it’s a day full of heady love, emotion and commitment and some times great vulnerability.   Being chosen to photograph a wedding, to me is a sign of great trust and commitment from my couples and at every wedding I’m determined to do my absolute best job – I love it when my couples see their photographs and love them. Nothing beats that buzz. I’m passionate about producing beautiful, heartfelt, natural photographs.

What do I dislike about being a photographer?   Probably the physical aches the day after a wedding ! You often hear photographers talking about how they suffer a ‘hangover’ the day after shooting a wedding – usually from a lack of water throughout a 8 to 10 hour day ! Nothing a hot bath and good massage can’t fix though!

How did you get into photography and into the wedding industry?

 

I believe you have to learn from experience and shouldn’t rush the journey, I began by second shooting for other photographers – some really great, industry leading photographers who were generous with their time and trusted me to be their number 2 on the day. I was working in Human Resource and recognise that this has helped me to be highly organised, calm under pressure and able to deal with all sorts of people. Working full-time for a period allowed me invest in brilliant training.   For example, with Aspire up in the Lakes as well as investing in one to one sessions with experienced photographers (Marianne Taylor, Catherine Connor, Kate Hopewell-Smith, Kevin Mullins).   By second shooting initially I was able to experience difficult lighting situations, wet wedding days, weddings where things didn’t always go to plan, cutting my teeth like this was invaluable. I really believe that to invest in my business I have to invest in myself.

What do you aim to achieve for your clients?

 

I want my couples to love their photographs, I want their interaction with me at every point to be stress-free, clear and comfortable. I want my clients to look through their wedding album and simply LOVE what they see, knowing my photographs reflect the personality of their guests, them, and is the essence of their relationship and their wedding day.

London Wedding Photographer Chiron Cole http://chironcole.com/

 

This afternoon I am thrilled to be getting to know and view the portfolio of London based wedding and portrait photographer Chiron Cole. Chiron creates honest natural photographs and I just adore the moments she captures from the couples she works with.

Lets take a look at her work…

 

Hi Chiron could you firstly tell WWW readers a little bit about you?

 

Hello, I’m both a photographer and an actress and have been enjoying both careers for about six years. I studied Graphic Arts & Design at Leeds Met where I did a lot of photography as part of my degree, before moving down to London and going to drama school at ArtsEd to train as an actress. I’d wanted to do both jobs but couldn’t choose both options in school so did one after the other. After drama school I put the two together and started to shoot actors headshots alongside auditioning, then decided to venture into weddings, enabling me to tell stories in a different way.

What do you love/dislike about your job?

 

I love the diversity and meeting so many different kinds of people. I love the fact that no two days are the same and that my job can take me to the most random places. In all honesty I don’t think there’s anything I hate because I’m able to earn a living by being creative and telling stories.

How did you get into photography and into the wedding industry?

 

I always wanted to work for myself and I’ve always been creative and loved photography. I started shooting actor friends for experience during and after drama school. I then began shooting weddings, often with my husband Tim who’s an amazing advertising and lifestyle photographer (I’m a bit biased), after a friend of ours asked us to shoot their wedding a few years back. They were so happy with the results that we decided that I should do it full time and 95% of the time when he’s not shooting we’ll do it together.

What do you aim to achieve for your clients?

 

I aim to capture beautiful, natural, honest moments whether I’m shooting a portrait or a wedding. It’s important for anyone who hires me to feel comfortable around me.

Who doesn’t love a photo booth? The photo booth is becoming a wedding must have; fun for your guests in the evening and it’s so entertaining to look back on the images the day after. It also means you won’t miss a thing from your evening party while you are enjoying yourself.

Let me introduce to you LOOKLOOK this afternoon. A photo booth company that provides a totally bespoke and personalised service. With options for not only the look of the booth but the style of images and prints too. Let’s get to know LOOKLOOK and what they offer to their couples…

 

Hi LOOKLOOK, could you firstly tell WWW readers a little bit about you?

 

LOOKLOOK provide unique photo booths for the style-savvy couple. We believe in personalisation so you can make the photo booth completely tie in with the style of your wedding. We have a range of stylish backdrops, fun props, print styles and even a personalised guest book which can all reflect your unique sense of style.

Our photo booths are custom built in-house so there’s nothing else like it! The Deer Hunter is an all wooden photo booth with Deer Antlers, the Retro Booth is inspired by the roaring twenties and then there’s the futurist white Tower Booth which is great for sharing images online.

Our instant prints, which are unlimited on the night, come in various styles too. We’ve got Folkie, Fun, Rose and Teal. Get in touch to request our wedding brochure for more info. [email protected]

The personalised guest book is a fantastic way of displaying your booth photos together in one place and for recording special messages too.

What do you love/dislike about your job?

 

We love helping brides to create something special on their big day. Photography is such a key part of our modern day lives but it’s nice to also get the print outs for guests to take away as a memento from the day. Some brides choose to personalise the prints so that they can use them as favours too.

I love the creativity in this job. No two events are ever the same and I enjoy chatting to customers about their weddings.

How did you get into the wedding industry?

 

My husband was a photographer for 5 years before we saw photo booths popping up in the states. We were one of the first companies in the UK and since then have gone from strength to strength. We now have seven booths plus a brand new style booth coming on-line this summer, check out our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/looklookphotobooths) for more info.

What do you aim to achieve for your clients?

 

We have excellent customer service and really go the extra mile for our brides and grooms. It’s about more than just providing a booth for their wedding, we want to create a stand-out service that they can rely on and to make their big day as special as possible for them. (more…)
