This is why I love my job...

April 01, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
The last few weeks have been, let's say busy. Today, for example, was a journey across the Midlands to Stourbridge, more precisely the Red House Glass Cone. I was there to meet James and Amy to take some pictures for their engagement and to get to know them before their wedding day. This is where the couple met, whilst both working there. Althoug...

March 11, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
Birmingham. The place I was born. With a market history that stems back all the way to the 12th century, this city is steeped in stories. The history of the city certainly adds to the character of the place, but for me it's not so much the old history it's the people. There are so many different people who call this city their home and place of w...

But this Christmas was slightly different. The 28th December, normally when I'm in smack in the middle of the Christmas indulgence coma was actually spent taking photos of a wo...

Complementary engagement sessions, are they worth it?

You guide your children away from danger ALL THE TIME, so why when it's Bonfire night, we suddenly throw pretty much everything we have taught our kids out the window and let them stare at grown ups 'playing with fire'. Nothings going to change the fickleness of hum...

Weddings can be expensive affairs, especially in the peak season of the summer, the average cost of a wedding being in the region of £15000. It really does make sense then, if you want to save some money, consider getting married mid week, as you can find some g...
