Wedding Photography at Alderson House Warwick, Warwickshire

2A4A8846

On the 24th September 2016 I was hired to provide the wedding photography for the wedding of Emma and Steve at the Alderson House in Warwick, Warwickshire. The Alderson House is actually an active lodge for the Warwick masons which makes for a more unusual venue for a wedding.  I was booked to start my day at Emma's home in Bishops Tachbrook through until just before the wedding breakfast.

It was a lovely day the weather held out, Emma had made a fanastic effort of decorating the venue in a vintage style, they also hired a vintage car. Here is a small selection of the images taken.

Product Photography Warwickshire

JodieandGold-41-of-110

An exciting project in September was the product photography of Jodie & Gold a local up and coming fashion designer. Jodie has just launched her new range of clothing and needed good quality photography to show the designs off.

After discussing the new range with Jodie and her own ideas of what the photography should be like, we settled on doing the product photography within Jepherson Gardens in Leamington Spa. The gardens were a good choice because they provide varied and classical scenes that suited the floral and geometic designs of the clothing.

 The weather on the day was interesting in that the forecast up until the day was cloudy and then as we started to take some pictures the sun came out for completely blue skies with bright sunshine. The complete opposite of what we had planned for but despite some grumblings from me we adapted to the weather and got really nice pictures for Jodie’s website.

Warwickshire Wedding Photographer

Philip_Lena_0151

Over the summer I have provided wedding photography for several weddings all have been brilliant, I am thankful to the happy couples for employing me to cover their wedding days.  My aim with this blog is to update it a couple of times a week with what we've been up and show off work. However in busier times it is hard to make the time to write a blog and now I am somewhat behind. 

In August I covered the wedding for Philip & Lena, which was held at the Pagneant House in Warwick followed by a reception within the ballroom of the old Court House.

I booked for a few hours to cover the ceremony and the formal portraits and the general scene within two hours. Philip and Lena wanted a relaxed vintage feel to the photography whilst also capturing the pictures of the family groups that everyone loves.

Company Business Portraits Warwickshire

BusinessPortraits-2-of-6

Earlier in the summer I was approached by a local firm of solicitors who needed business portraits of all their staff, with two offices and twenty staff I needed to make two visits to there main office. One visit to photograph the majority of staff and another to capture the remaining staff and reshoot anybody who didn't like there portraits from the first visit. 

My brief for the project was simply to create business portraits of the staff that were of good quality and I could have just gone for standard white background portraits but I prefer to tailor my work to each client. Are talking over the ideas I had with Mark the senior partner we decided on a style that was a bit more artistic.

Rosey and Sean Wedding Photography at the Warwickshire Golf Club

warwickshirewedding-3021-of-46

On the 30th July I covered the wedding of Rosey and Sean for a whole day wedding photography package from the bridal preparations to the first dance. The wedding service was held at St Martins Church on the Rugby Road in Leamington Spa with the reception held at The Warwickshire Golf Club. The day started for Rebecca my colleague at The Travel Lodge in Leamington and for me at the church an hour later. This is the advantage of having two wedding photographers because we can be in two places at once and also when in the same location take photographs of the same subject from different aspects.    

All went well for the bridal prep but at the church the vicar told me that pictures were not allowed during the ceremony, which was disappointing but sometimes vicars and registrars can be awkward it is few and far between though.   If I am honest I did sneak in a few pictures of crucial moments of the service from the back of the church because I am being paid to take photographs and if I have to bend the rules a little bit I will do as long as it doesn't upset anyone.  

For the transportation of guests a vintage double decker bus had been hired and for the bride and groom a horse and carriage to take them to The Warwickshire and with my local knowledge we were able to drive around the back lanes and arrive at the venue before the bus and the carriage.

The weather at the venue was sunny but we some cloud, the speeches were very good with a brutal best mans speech and then surprise or two for the guests with the announcement that Rosey was pregnant and the surprise guest of Steve Bull a famous Wolves football player arriving at the end of the speeches Rosey is a Wolves fan and Sean a Leicester Fan.

I  rounded the day off with a drone video selfie of the wedding crowd and the venue in the background. I am a qualified and insured drone (uav pilot) the Warwickshire has loads of space so I thought why not try a selfie as a bonus for the happy couple.  After this I left just after the first dance it was an enjoyable day here is small sample of the 500 images that were supplied to the Happy couple.

Product Photography Warwickshire

productphotography-11-of-16

Commercial and product photography has always been a core service provided by Squire & Squire Photography.  In the seven years we have been in business we still retain the same commercial photography customers that we started with and add many more each year. We value all jobs no matter how large or small, sometimes a client may have a handful of items to be photographed or an entire shop full but the output is always same the best quality product photography.   

Recently we were approached to photograph over one hundred fifty stock lines for a men's clothing and formal wear Hire Company based in Leamington Spa.  They had high expectations of creating a new stylish website with high quality product photography. 

We have photographed clothing on mannequins, with models and flat from the very beginning. However to achieve great product photography it is not only about the photographer but also about dressing the product to look as it should. This is why we actively involve our clients in the photography process listening to their ideas of how they want to see the product, doing test shots until we get the an output our customers are 110% happy with. 

Below is a small sample of the images taken.

Alex & Jim Wedding Photography at Lord Leycester Hospital

2A4A0360

The Lord Leycester is great venue and one of my favourite places in to do Wedding Photography in Warwick because unlike most venues it is a charity that looks after retired service men and they're wives. Similar to the Chelsea Pensioners the "Brothers" who run the Lord Leycester are all ex services who run the building under the supervision of a "master" a retired officer in return for their lodgings. Also the venue is a fantastic building and my hope that is the more weddings that are held there the more money can be invested in its upkeep.

weddingphotography-20-of-26

On Saturday 11th June provided the Wedding Photography for Chris & Katherine Fenwick at the Lord Leycester Hospital in Warwick. The Lord Leycester Hospital is such a picturesque building with well kept gardens as well as the brothers on hand to help out.

Drone Aerial Photography and Video Warwickshire

Aerial_Photos_02

Not a lot of people know that Squire and Squire Photography also has an aerial photography business as well, this is in part due to my obsession with all thing photography, I am fascinated with any application to do with image capture. Also in the beginning it made sense to separate the two businesses because flying UAVS (unmanned aerial vehicles) or drones as they are more popularly was a very specialist activity.   Back in 2010 Dataq Technologies Ltd was one of the few companies to gain a commercial license to fly drones granted by the civil aviation authority. In fact my drone pilots licence was the seventh issued, so my licence number was 007 but is now 0007 because of the expansion of the industry and the trained pilots within it.  However all this market expansion does not mean that we have let our standards slip we are still a professional UAS operator with high quality equipment and procedures.

Aerial photography and surveys has always been our staple we've carried out jobs all over the country including numerous jobs in the centre of London. Recently though we have purchased a new drone that we plan to use for aerial video up to the quality of 4K. We plan to get the full potential out of our new purchase and therefore have some exciting drone video shoots lined up for weddings and events these will be blogged out in due course.

In the meantime please see the images below for some of our best work in aerial photography in Warwickshire and the rest of the UK.

Family Portrait Photographer Warwickshire

2A4A5161bw

This weekend just gone I was asked to take some photographs for a 12th birthday party, doing photography for birthdays parties is not something I have done much of before but then again it is very similar to usual location family portraits and wedding photography.  The hosts wanted some professional photographs capturing the action of the party whilst some traditional portraits as well.

Sunday also happened to be the best weather we have had in quite some time so most of the party was outside revolving around a trampoline and a water fight. It great fun to watch and reminded me of my own days of care free youth.
