Happy New Year http://www.a1imagesaylesbury.com/blog/2018/1/happy-new-year Well its the start of a new year, and we always look back on the past twelve months, the highs, the lows, the people we met, the lessons we learnt.

For me the year overall was very good, meeting my lovely clients, their families and friends, some unexpected moments and challenges but that's what helps to make photography so rewarding and diverse.

2018 looks like being another busy time with a few bookings already in, so it's best foot forward as they say, and always on the lookout for continuous improvement.

A big thank you to all my clients present and past for having faith in me, I hope you have a good year too.

A fairytale wedding http://www.a1imagesaylesbury.com/blog/2017/11/a-fairytale-wedding A fairytale wedding, Catharine and Bradley were childhood sweethearts, and went their seperate ways after college, going off to university and Catherine went to work in Dubai. Years later they met up again and fell in love all over again, it was meant to be, a match made in heaven.

So they tied the knot in October and I was priveliged to be their photographer of choice.  Starting with Bradley, his Dad Graham, Paul his best man, and Ed the chief usher getting ready at Bradleys Dads house, donning their suits ties and shoes, with pink socks to match the colour scheme of the day, then round to the pub for a swift half before arriving at the venue.

The venue they had chosen was the wonderful Kings Chapel in Old Amersham, where the staff and management certainly pull all the stops out for an unforgettable experience.

Catharine and her bridesmaids were simply stunningly beautiful, and the glorious sunshine for late October made for a perfect day.

The partyThe party in fuill swing KazAnxiously waiting for his bride Jackie A hectic weekend indeed, two weddings  one on Saturday followed by another on Sunday. They were very different affairs one being more traditional the other was rather more lavish but each in its own way was very nice, and it was a great pleasure to be the photographer.  On the Saturday I had a second shooter with me, my good friend Clifford, the church had a balcony so Clifford was able to get some different angles at the ceremony. Sunday was at Q Vadis in Uxbridge, a pupose made wedding venue, with a wedding chapel and seperate reception and party building, all situated down a country lane by the side of  small river. The bride and her party arrived in a stretch limo that had a bit of difficulty manouvering through the gate into the car park, but it managed it without a scratch! We did it!Jackie and Kaz Jackie and KazWe are married!

Wedding Vows http://www.a1imagesaylesbury.com/blog/2017/6/wedding-vows I had the pleasure recently of photographing a lovely couple renewing their wedding vows after some thirty plus years of marriage and a year to the day since the husband survived a heart attack.  It took place in All Saints Church at Milton Keynes Village, certainly a hidden gem.  The service was witnessed by the close family so it was an intimate affair, very touching and emotional.  The service was conducted with reverence and some humour in the beautiful church.

Bluebells http://www.a1imagesaylesbury.com/blog/2017/5/bluebells Evening shadowsBluebells Blebells caught in the evening sun Well its that time of year when the spring flowers are around and there is no better place to see a wonderful woodland canopy of bluebells than at The Ashridge Estate in Buckinghamshire.  Although I have photographed these for several years now there is always a different perspectiive and angle.

This time I went in the evening it had been a clear sunny day so there was a good chance of getting some of that golden sunset light filtering through the trees, and it did not dissapoint. Evening shadows The golden hourAshridge Bluebells in the sunset

A visit to the Hair Stylist http://www.a1imagesaylesbury.com/blog/2017/3/a-visit-to-the-hair-stylist A visit to a ladies hair stylist is not my usual thing but a very nice client of mine wanted some shots of a hair stylist at work for a project she is involved in, so off I went to north London on a Saturday afternoon, met my client and Manuela the stylist of Ambitious Lenghts.  Manuela originally hails from Italy and is obviously very talented having been in the business for some time, she covers a very wide range of services but I guess her speciality are those hair extensions.  Now such styling takes time and meticulous care and attention to detail is Manuela's forte, so it was a bit of a waiting game at times, and in the end Manuela's client was very happy, and I am pleased to say so was mine.  Another new experience for my portfolio, and thanks all round.

A morning in Richmond Park http://www.a1imagesaylesbury.com/blog/2017/3/a-morning-in-richmond-park Well it's a bit quiet at the moment, so I decided to have a wander around Richmond Park.  It was early morning and quite misty so finding anything to photograph was nigh on impossible until the sun broke through.  Looking for deer there were non to be found in their usual haunts, but after about a mile of searching I came accross a group of Fallow Deer resting under some trees, then I spotted some Red Deer in a nearby field, I could just see the tip of their antlers above the long grass, and one of them looked like a big stag.  I made my way stealthily towards them using the nearby bracken as cover. I managed to get a few good photos with my 70/400 lens. A young stag got a bit too close to the ladies and the big 'un soon saw him off with a charge and a roar.

Back in the wooded area the floor was littered with chestnuts, and they were falling from the trees all the time one after another, making a gentle landing sound as they hit the deck which was covered in fallen leaves.  The squirrels were everywhere collecting nuts, prising open the hairy shells to get at the nuts.

Jackdaws were aslo flitting about singly and in groups, perching on fallen tree branches seeking out any grubs thet were to be found.

All in all it was a most interesting morning and it's obvious that there is wild food in abundance here.

Must go back when snow is on the ground.

Winter Wedding http://www.a1imagesaylesbury.com/blog/2016/12/winter-wedding I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding ceremony of a lovely couple last Saturday at St Albans Register office.  The time was 4:30 in the afternoon so it was dark and also it was very foggy-a photographers nightmare!

Fortunately for me the only guests were the grooms best friend and his wife who were acting as witnesses. With a minimal amount of editing I produced 70 or so final images and the couples reaction was fantastic they were so pleased.

Training Day http://www.a1imagesaylesbury.com/blog/2016/10/training-day  

Had a great training day with Wings Photography by Lyn Chapman who is also an Ambassador for BANPAS.  I was the only male person there amongst seven female photographers.  We were shown how to pose the newborn babies and handle them safely in a very relaxed but professional manner.

We had two newborn babies to work with and "model" for us, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.  It brought back memories of being a young father of 19 years of age.

It was a long day of over 12 hours including driving to Dudley and back but very worthwhile and should pay dividends.

Newborn http://www.a1imagesaylesbury.com/blog/2016/8/newborn Photography session yesterday with a 6 day old baby, who was a perfect model, along with her proud Mum and Dad. Located at my place took an hour to set everything up but the results are highly satisfactory we were all pleased and I hope the baby is when she is old enoughto appreciate them.

Many thanks to BANPAS (Baby and Newborn Photography Association) an organistion that I am a member of for all their training advice and industry guidelines.

Looking forward to more of the same.

Sunflowers and Lavender http://www.a1imagesaylesbury.com/blog/2016/8/sunflowers-and-lavender Had a trip out to Hitchin Lavender last week, it's a great little spot for photographers, although the lavender was past it's best but the sunflowers were in full bloom. For £4.50 you can wander around at your hearts content and pick Lavander, you can also pick sunflowers but that is an extra cost at £1 each flower.

There is also a nice cafe and shop, and a big outdoor cinema screen and also yoga classes out on the field.

For a professional photoshoot there is a £50 charge, saw a couple posing as bride and groom being photographed, they got changed in the toilets so it was not a real wedding but no doubt it will appear on someones website and people will think it was taken at an actual wedding.
