Engagement Shoot

Here’s a photo that did quite well for me in a competition recently themed “Expect the Unexpected” coming 19th out of over 1100 entries.  The photo was taken on a pre-wedding shoot and was called “I was surprised to see my fiance was in the local paper!”  I offer engagement shoots or pre-wedding shoots to potential clients because I feel it is very important to show them the quality of my work and how I work.  Professional wedding photography is so much more than just turning up with a camera and clicking away but how can a couple choose with so many people claiming they are top pros?

If you were engaged over Christmas or if it all happens on Valentine’s Day please get in touch.  I will be delighted to show you what I can do.

A Wedding Dress made from a Silk Parachute

This is when many brides are looking for their wedding dresses but I came across this unusual one in a Norwegian Museum with stories of bravery and heroism behind it.  During the Second World War the Norwegian Resistance were in fear of their lives but to help them fight the Nazis the British dropped supplies by parachute into the hills around the town of Kristiansand.  The parachutes were made of silk but the material couldn’t be reused because that would immediately reveal you were a member of the resistance and you would be executed.  However after the war the silk that had been hidden away was made into lovely wedding dresses bringing joy and celebration after a very dark period of history and this is an example which can be seen in the Arkivet Museum in KristiansandArkivet is now a Peace and Human Rights Centre working with the Red Cross, Amnesty and the UN.  If you ever get a chance to visit there are some very moving stories to be heard.

Back home I’m used to photographing more usual but lovely wedding dresses but for me photography remains more than just a job. 

Please take a look at my work and if you would like more information do get in touch.
