I am now on Tumblr (as well as every other social networking site there is) so if you have it please follow me! I am not too sure how to gain followers on it yet but I am absolutely loving it. I need to follow a few more people too so if you have a cool tumblr I would love to follow!

Sorry I’ve been a bit quiet on WordPress but my laptop has been playing up and wouldn’t let me get onto my blog! I have a few things to blog about, especially a few photos from the latest wedding I did with David Christopher so I am excited to share them with you guys! I have also decided that it’s time to get myself a website as my own portfolio so if any of you know of any good websites and tips please comment and let me know, would really appreciate any advice 🙂
P.S Here is a sneak peak from Saturday’s wedding, how amazing is this Rolls-Royce?!
A couple of weeks ago I practised my photography using studio lights, it was so much fun I can’t wait to use them again! It’s difficult trying to get the lighting you want at first but then you get the hang of it. I teamed up with Ellia who is an aspiring MUA and we hired ourselves a little studio in Greenwich for a couple of hours. Our model was great too, she came on time and was so friendly 🙂
I feel like I could get better photos next time but I will keep practising using studio lights until I get the perfect photos, practice makes perfect! We did three different looks and decided to do mostly headshots just so that the makeup was the focal point. Please have a look and feel free to let me know what you think!
Look 1: Smokey Eye
Look 2: Powerful Pastel
Look 3: Elegant Eyeliner and Red lip
MUA – Ellia Borgese
Model – Emma Martin
As most of you know, this time last week was London Fashion Week which I managed to go to. It was held at Somerset House and I was asked to go for the day to take some photographs of the event. The weather was pretty miserable for the whole day, it rained non stop but I was so distracted I didn’t realise I was drenched until I was back on the tube…
I’ve always wanted to go just to witness and be part of the atmosphere which was so amazing considering it was only the first day! It started off being a little empty in the morning but once it hit lunch time hours it was so busy, people were taking photos everywere – I was in my comfort zone! Pretty much everyone made an effort, maybe some a little more than others…
I will do another post on a few of the street style photos, but for now here are the rest of the photographs from the day 🙂
A couple of weeks ago I was asked to help and assist a photographer, David Christopher for the day. My job was to help him with changing lenses and generally be of assistance and get great shots of the bride and groom. I was also there to be a second pair of eyes to give him my opinion on what I think should be captured and things that he may have missed. I took my camera on the day, my 85mm lense (as that’s the best one I have for now…) and I was able to capture my own photos which I am very grateful for. We were there from 8:30am till the evening and even got to capture the first dance!
Working with David was a great experience, I learnt so much just from working with him for a day and was given some great tips. I love his work and look forward to working with him again! If you haven’t already looked through his website, make sure you check it out http://davidchristopher-photography.co.uk/
The wedding was hosted at Wotton House in Dorking Surrey, such a beautiful place!! Have a look through my photos from the day, hope you enjoy! xx
After the wettest and windiest week, it’s finally Friday, yay! This only means one thing, and that is using my free time to do some more posts. I went to a bootsale last week, (I go pretty much every two weeks with my dad) but I always manage to find some bargains which is why I love them so much! When I was there I found myself staring at this lady’s stand where she had a load of vintage bags for sale and I couldn’t help but buy one for myself, vintage Italian real leather handbag? umm yes please!!
