Tina and Tom are simply a perfect match. The morning looked ominous with a very cloudy sky, but the afternoon gave us some beautiful sunshine on the Burnham-On-Crouch, Essex Quayside. A little ice cream along the way and we were set for some amazing images! Looking forward to their wedding next year:)
These two are like sugar and spice. Like a cool, refreshing soda on a hot summer’s day. I’m excited for their wedding day, because they are going to ROCK that too! Hit my Facebook page and tap the “like” button to see more.
I had the pleasure of spending some time with Gemma and John who will be celebrating their big day in July at the Fennes. For engagement sessions, I always try to get to know my couples a bit better and make them feel confident and excited about their wedding day photography. Although Gemma is still experimenting with tanning solutions, I think she looked absolutely stunning that day! John has a small nose, which we made a note of. No matter, he’s handsome just the same! My impression is that he spends a good deal of his day being a tough guy, but I can see in his eyes that Gemma melts him in to the Teddy Bear he really is.
Here’s a sneak peak at a little surprise I have in store for them at their preview session:

As a professional wedding photographer based in Burnham-On-Crouch, Essex, I’m pleased that more venues are taking up the chance to become licensed to have weddings performed on premises. Several of the Yacht Clubs, including Royal Burnham Yacht Club and Royal Corinthian Yacht Club, are amongst them. Not only are they in great locations along the river Crouch, they are very affordable. From a photographer’s perspective, having the river, the Quay and lots of boats in the background make for a perfect setting! Here are some images that I’ve taken along the Quayside to show you what great scenery awaits you in this little riverside community.

I am pleased to announce our “Summer Portrait Special” – jointly with Jas Bdesha Body Health and Aesthetics. But you’ll need to hurry, we have limited availability.
Whether you’re a mom wanting a family portrait where you actually LIKE the way you look in it, or you’re a newly engaged couple and you want to test the waters on makeup and photography, or maybe you just want to treat yourself to a self portrait- or even make a girlfriends fun day out, we’ve got the solution!
Jas will do your makeup either at her home office in Heybridge, Maldon, Essex, at my home office in Burnham-On-Crouch, or at your nearby location of choice. While she’s transforming you in to a stunning beauty, she’ll chat with you about your skin type, giving you tips and advice where wanted. If you’d like to include more than one makeover, we can work out the additional price- and we won’t charge you extra for the photo session, only the makeover!
You then have the choice to come to my outdoor studio in lovely Burnham-On-Crouch where we’ll go to Riverside Park and explore the Quay, the marina and other fantastic portrait settings- or I can come to your favourite park or other location near you. We’ll have some fun, creating memories of you, your family, your friends or whoever you choose to come along! After the photo session, we’ll schedule in a personalised Preview and Ordering Session where you can choose how you’d like to display your favourite images.
The catch is, we have limited availability! Sessions can be booked any time to take place between 16 August to 19 September 2013.
Here’s what you get: Makeover, 1 hour photo session, 8×10 Canvas of your favourite image, a fun day out! All for only £99. (The cost of a grande coffee per day for a month!!)
I made a list of all the things I’m behind in blogging. I’m ready to check one of those items off my list. List…. where’s my list? Really, my desk isn’t THAT messy. So I’m starting over, as you do….
I am waaaay behind in telling you about some of the weddings I’ve done lately. Actually, they all just seem to be out of order. I do like order, don’t you? Now let’s go back to 04 June 2011.
Natasha and Jamie were referred to me by another lovely couple. When I first spoke to Natasha, Jamie was unable to attend the meeting. It was clear to me that Natasha very much wanted a professional photographer, but Jamie would be the one to convince. They are a young family and Jamie is bravely active in the military. I understand their concerns and attempt to later explain to Jamie the benefits of hiring a professional wedding photographer.
June of 2011 wasn’t an overly fabulous summer, but we had a lovely day at my favorite Burnham-On-Crouch spots. Here’s a few of my favorite images from their engagement session.
Now fast forward to 13 August 2011. The wedding was at St. Nicholas Church of England in Harwich, Essex. Natasha looked absolutely stunning and Jamie was ready for the day in his dress uniform. The weather was on our side and the excitement built as guests entered the church.
This is quite possibly my favorite image of 2011, outside the church door with a little help from the wind.
After the wedding, as Jamie suggested, we had everyone head down to a bloomin’ garden that made a fab backdrop for some of the more formal shots. These are some of the favorites that Jamie and Natasha chose.
With their one year anniversary just gone by, I wish this couple all the best.

Yes, you heard right. We are pleased to announce that we are currently the sole UK retailer of Organic Bloom frames! Based in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, USA, this frame company was founded in May 2010 by Jason and Andrea Sooter. Needless to say, this company has gone absolutely VIRAL in the USA!! They describe their direction as “A company devoted to crafty creativity, artistically unique products, and outstanding customer satisfaction… quality frames… quality experiences.”
But can a frame really provide an “experience?” Well, not just any frame. I believe this frame can. As I’m primarily a wedding, portrait and bump photographer, I’d also like to branch out more in full fledged family photography. I’d like to provide the kind of service that a couple can rely on all their photographic needs. From your wedding, to your pregnancy, to your family, I want my clients to Live, Love and Laugh through out their lives, and let me be the one to take care of the memories.
So here you are. These beautiful frames will showcase all your lasting memories with style, grace and the ability to “WOW” you every time you walk in to the room. The only place you can get them in the UK is through me. So you’ve just found the golden egg in this blog! Now have a look at the Organic Bloom website, pop on over to my Facebook page and my website, then contact me for more information.
