Southampton Engagement Photography :: Karl and Nicole

Engagement family photography portraits Travel wedding

I always try my best, no matter what, to get a couple in front of my camera before their wedding day. Not everyone is used to having a camera pointing at them, and it’s often really hard to not go into “cheese” mode when it is. Getting a couple in front of the camera before their wedding day, helps me to coach them a bit and get used to my style of photography. That way, on their big day, they can focus on each other, and that’s when the magic happens.

However, these two had no problem in front of my camera. It seemed like they had already done it all before. We got to sneak away from the party for a bit to catch that afternoon light that only the Pacific North West can produce in the summertime. Here is my beautiful cousin Nicole, and her love Karl :: A little Pre Wedding Mini-Sesh.

Really nice job Ash. I've often been thunder struck by the beauty the northwest twilight brings in the late summer, early autumn. It helped me understand the quality of light the National Geographic photographer portrayed in the book The Bridges of Madison County was looking for to shoot his bridge spread.

Happy Holidays
I'm not going to lie, Christmas has kind of taken a back seat this year to other things that are going on. But I still love this time of year and knowing that there is going to be a respite, from work and other things, to spend with family and friends. I like taking part in our local community's holiday activities that bring people together and I love finding little treasures for people to open on Christmas day. Favorite gift I found this year were these little stamp sets for my niece and Eliot's god-daughter. I also really love when I get to reconnect with people who's photos I've taken in the past. One of the biggest compliments is getti ...

Southampton Engagement Photography :: Kerry & Jonas
I met Kerry the first night I arrived in China, after a long Chinese dinner and a ride on the back of a motorbike, through the busy streets of Fuyang, with a South African guy I had met just a few hours previously. (In case you think that's not the best decision I've ever made, I can promise you that it's not the worst.) She's been an easy person to keep up with, because every once in a while, we find ourselves in the same corner of the world again. This time, it was in London, and she had just gotten engaged to Jonas. She's American, he's German and they have such an amazing outlook on life, and this world. Eliot and I had an awesome day ...

New Forest Photography :: Maternity Shoot with Alice
The importance of having maternity photos. Pregnancy is such a surreal time in life. There's so many changes happening in the build up and getting ready for this new little being to enter your world. You're unsure of exactly what lies ahead, and everyone tells you it's the hardest and most amazing thing ever, which can be so confusing and contradicting. You give up things that you like (sushi, cheese, alcohol) not realising that these are small sacrifices compared to what's to come. Nobody can tell you or prepare you for it. When this little person arrives, life changes forever, and you embrace it. Taking maternity photos is such a good wa ...
