Crikey! It’s been far too long since my last update – and far too much going on! 2 weddings shot so far this year, and mercifully the weather held out for both of them. The most recent one in Twickenham looked like it was going to be a complete wash-out; but as the ceremony finished the sun came out and we had glorious weather for the rest of the day! As you can see from the pictures below, the couple got all of their full-resolution pictures on DVD, in a really nice folio case – a standard part of my packages.
It’s a few weeks until my next wedding shoot, but again it’s at St Clement Danes in the centre of London. I recently had my pre-wedding / contracting meeting with the couple, and it looks like it should be a great day with the ceremony itself and a tour of the sights in a double-decker Routemaster bus! I’m really looking forward to it.
In the meantime, I’ve been booked to shoot the formal portraits at the Officers’ Mess Summer Ball at RAF Cosford. The theme is ‘The Great Gatsby’, and it’s planned that the portraits will be taken in front of a classic car. As with the weddings, I’m hoping the weather will hold out – it’d be a shame to do ‘normal’ shots indoors. It’s worth noting that the defence school of photography is at Cosford, so err…no pressure then!
Keep an eye out on my FaceBook page (https://www.facebook.com/adhallphoto) for some pictures of the setup, and some of the portraits.
And finally, it's time to say goodbye to my venerable Nikon D40. This was my 1st DSLR, bought at the tail-end of 2007, when 6 mega-pixels seemed enormous! It's travelled the world with me, taken pictures of friends, family (including my daughters' earliest moments) but it's time to move on. But I have just taken delivery of a new D7100 (24 mega-pixels!!) so I'm sure my melancholy will be short-lived!
Thanks for reading!
