Wedding Photography for a Small Family Wedding Alice & Omar @ Pageant House

Wedding Photography for a Small Family Wedding held in Warwick, Warwickshire

Earlier this month I had the pleasure of providing wedding photography for a small family wedding held at the Pageant House and then in and around Warwick for photographs. It was a perfect sunny day with a friendly family and great surroundings.

Wedding Photography Planning

For every wedding big or small I always seek to agree a plan with my client from the outset.  Having a plan of the days timings,  who needs to be photographed, where we will do the photographs and how much time we have for the photography and many more questions.  Need to be answered before the big day,   I also always do recce of the area in advance even if I have been to that place many times before because its always good to know the lay the of land where the light looks best and where the best spots are for wedding photography. 

You may be reading this and thinking with so much planning the end photographs will be very rigid.  The complete opposite is true because once the client knows what they are doing and I know what I am doing.  Everyone can relax and enjoy the day because there is nothing to worry about apart from enjoying the day.

Below are a small selection of the images from the day.

Chrome and Silver Product Photography

Over the years I have photographed every type of jewel and precious metal imaginable so when we were approached by a Warwickshire based local designer and manufacturer of high quality architectural hardware to do their photography.  I thought nothing of the challenge we faced, I now know photographing chrome is probably the most difficult type of product photography going.

I have photographed a lot of hand worked silver jewellery which can be tricky, but that is nothing in comparison to photographing chrome.  It is basically like taking photographs of a three dimensional mirror. However,  I have always liked a challenge and I am not known for giving up easily.  It has taken a lot of patience but I am now producing work that my client and I are happy with.

A Very Warwickshire Wedding - Brendan & Marie @ Pageant House

Here are a few images from the wedding of Marie and Brendan who got married on the 25th April 2015 at the registry Pageant House registry office in Warwick, Warwickshire. They hired me for my two hours wedding photography package where I was able to capture the pre wedding drinks in the Warwick Arms Hotel, then the service at the Pageant House followed by formal group photographs in the Pageant House gardens and then half an hours photography back at Marie and Brendans home where they were having their reception.

I absolutely put the same amount of effort into my wedding photography regardless of the time I am hired for and I hope this can be seen in the images I have shared here, which are just ten out of the one hundred finished photographs supplied to Marie and Brendan.

Product Photography Warwickshire Working with Horses

99% of the time I take product photographs in my studio, however a recent customer wanted their product photography done at their premises. The client wanted standard product shots on a white backgrounds but in addition they also wanted some photographs of their products on their horses. 

So packed all my kit up including large white and black backgrounds, lights, stands and reflectors and headed for the customers farm. I then set up my equipment in a large barn to photograph the biggest horse I have ever seen!

I am fairly tall but this horse towered over me and my camera so much so that I had to stand on a box to be at the same height as my tripod to photograph the horse. It was a challenge and also a thrill to set up my equipment in a barn which was a first for me.  That said though I am well versed in using my studio lights and quickly got set up to where I needed to be. 

The next few hours flew by where I photographed a series of ten bridles on Eric the horse who was very well behaved throughout. Afterwards we then when into warmer climes of the clients office to set up the white background and photograph the rest of the products.

As I mentioned above I would usually do this type of work in my studio but by being on site with the client they where able to direct how there photographs were taken which makes the process of taking the photographs so much easier. Resulting in set ups that the customers knows will work for their product and I know will work in terms of lighting.

This was my first time working with horses on location it was very enjoyable. I found the horses to be very well behaved. I have worked with lots of animals but I now think horses are the best to work with and look forward to doing more in the future.
