Portrait Photography Leicestershire

Nothing gives me greater pleasure than seeing my couples again whose weddings I have photographed. To capture one of the most amazing days of their lives is a real honour. It’s also so lovely when the couples come back to me with their babies for a portrait photography session. I like to think of my wedding day couples as ‘lifetime clients’ and I have photographed many weddings whereby couples have returned with their new babies or extended families for a portrait shoot. Fills me with great pride!

Commercial Photography Leicestershire

I have decided to take on a limited number of weddings for 2014 and focus more on portrait and commercial photography this year. I have worked with numerous local businesses in and around Hinckley, Leicestershire providing commercial head shots, as well as photography of premises and products. I also take on projects for Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council as well as event photography at the Hinckley Island Hotel. I am always surprised when I don’t see a photograph of the person behind the business when I visit a website. I feel that it is so important to see a friendly face on a website.
I offer individual head shots at my studio for £45, including 2 x digital files with full usage rights. I can also visit your premises and photograph colleagues, products etc. Please call for a bespoke quote for your photography needs.

Wedding Photography Normanton Church

It was a real pleasure to photograph this super fun, super COLD! wedding with Louise and Richard in November. Lou and Rich are both in the military so I only finally got to meet them the week of their actual wedding day, due to them being away most of the year. I knew straight away that they would be easy to work with. As soon as we sat down for coffee, we were on the same wavelength and it was obvious we were going to get along just fine. Lou and Rich have a house in Cornwall and so for them it was important to get married near the water but as they are both from the midlands they wanted to make it easy for friends and family to be a part of their wedding day. It’s the first time I have photographed at Normanton Church and Normanton Park Hotel and I have fallen in love with the church. Right on Rutland Water, truly stunning stunning scenery. The highlight of the day for me was the fact that Louise walked to the church with her brother and bridesmaids, alongside the bank of Rutland Water. This gave us lots of time for some photography. With the added bonus of walking back to the hotel after the ceremony. Again, lots of time to get some fabulous photographs of the bridal party. It was absolutely freezing and I can clearly remember Louise telling her bridesmaids that she didn’t feel cold at all, she just felt so happy.

If you are considering wedding venues at the moment and haven’t checked out Normanton Park Hotel which is a short walk along Rutland Water to Normanton Church, then take a look at this venue.

Lou and Rich’s wedding day was truly lovely. I don’t think I have ever worked with such an excited bride. Wishing you a lifetime of happiness Mr and Mrs Page. BEE happy!

Wedding Photography Langley Priory

This is the first time I have photographed at the beautiful Langley Priory – such an elegant and romantic venue, and absolutely ideal for small weddings. It is surrounded by beautiful parkland and the interior of the house is just stunning. It’s also privately owned by a very friendly couple Tim and Teri-Lee Wagstaff. And it was so nice to see their two boys running around the grounds, at my pre wedding consultation with Jayne, to talk through her wedding day.

Langley also offer an ideal venue for corporate events including product launches, summer balls, murder mystery evenings etc. I was made very welcome at Langley and the staff were a pleasure too. There is also a small health spa in the grounds of Langley – Owl House Day Spa. Unfortunately there was no time for me to have a quick massage and facial :(.

Jayne and Stephen had a very small, intimate wedding day which was just perfect. With the addition of a visit from their dogs after the ceremony… kindly brought to Langley by a friend who was taking care of them for the day and super excited to see Jayne and Stephen, to the point whereby Jayne could’t get too close for fear of having her beautiful dress ruined.. Excitable dogs and beautiful wedding dresses just don’t mix too well.
Super day, fabulous couple, and fun guests including the four legged variety. Absolutely perfect. BEE happy Mr and Mrs Hall.

Have a look at some of the images from their special day. If you are getting married at Langley Priory and have yet to find your photographer, please call me on 01455 233224 or complete the contact form on this website. I am happy to meet with you to discuss your wedding day for a no obligation chat.

Baby Photography Leicestershire

I love photographing newborns. It’s such a precious time. They grow so fast. I have to admit, newborn baby photography sessions are not the easiest. An average session takes up to two hours, sometimes longer. Working around cuddles and feeding and keeping baby calm, warm and content are the biggest challenges. You may wish to have your newborn photographed in the comfort of your own home. Often babies are more settled in their own surroundings. Alternatively I can photograph your baby here at the studio.
If you would like to book a newborn photography session, please call me on 01455 233224. A home visit is £95 and includes a complimentary 10×8 image. A studio session is £60. Please note, the ideal age for this photography session is under 2 weeks old.
