Pet Guests at Weddings

Bobby wore his gorgeous handmade bowtie with pride when owner Helen married the second most important man in her life! Family pets at weddings are becoming more common and accepted as part of a wedding day. Don't forget I also do pet portraits so there is no need to have to wait for a wedding to capture your special friends!

 What is the most unusual pet you have seen at a wedding?

Wedding Photography for Love Birds

Having captured another family wedding earlier in the year it was great to see everyone again for Kirsty and James's big day at Morley Hayes Golf Club, Derbyshire. The British weather stopped the ceremony being held outdoors as planned, but the magic between them soon dried everywhere up.  For more wedding images do see the galleries on my website.

Health Systems Come to Sheffield

Informatics CIS develops surgical records software, which replaces the paper-based systems most hospitals rely on. They have recently opened an office in Sheffield and I met managing director Tom Hurrell to take his photograph and he told me, “Sheffield is a centre of excellence in the healthcare technology sector and has a general creative buzz.  Our decision has been validated as, within just a few months, the city is proving to be perfect for us.” Do you need to publicise your business? Great images can do that of people or your products, contact me for more information.

Royal Chatsworth Wedding

St Peters Church at Edensor in Derbyshire may have played host to Royalty at the recent funeral of the late Dowager Duchess of Devonshire, but not very long before we were there celebrating Steph and Mike's marriage.  Their reception was held at the beautiful former stately home of the last Mitford sister, Chatsworth House.

Tips for helping choose your wedding photographer

In a changing world of digital photography, affordable cameras, and free website builders, there are many people trying their hand at being a professional photographer. They may have a portfolio of 20 good wedding shots for you to see. However there is no substitute for experience, so make sure that you see work from many different weddings and whole weddings. If the same Bride and Groom keep popping up in a small portfolio it means one of two things… either this photographer has not photographed many weddings before, or they have not photographed many weddings they are proud to show prospective clients. Of course all wedding photographers at some stage in their life had never photographed a wedding, but it’s important to know the level of experience you’re investing and trusting in. Check too if they are a member of a professional body like the Master Photographers Asscoiation. Contact Lisa now for more advice.
