I didn’t get a chance to put up a complete post from Liz + Craig’s Brighton wedding a few months ago so wanted to show some extracts from their wedding album, complete with beach huts and an ice-cream seller.
This is their beach-themed cover with a summery feel.
This is Liz before she walked down the aisle at Brighton’s Hilton Hotel – these are two of Liz and Craig’s favourites listed for their album.
After their ceremony, Liz and Craig had hired a horse-drawn carriage to take them to their reception hotel further along the coast.
Their family and friends were a friendly, happy group, tucking into seaside favourites of fish and chips followed by cones of ice-cream outside, which was hugely popular with everyone.
Given that we had fine weather – not always a given – beach portraits with Liz and Craig finished off their album.
I’ve just been visiting Felixstowe, doing some product shots for a very talented woman who makes beaded earrings – as well as capturing her and her family. We were on the beach just up the road from her home this afternoon doing some Suffolk beach portraits – this is Lorna & her partner Toby.
Yesterday, we shot some of Lorna’s earrings in the natural environment which inspires her. Every background was tried – I especially like the matt beaded earrings draped on teasel bushes with the beach behind – even attempting to be a mountain goat to get the photograph I wanted. Lorna has especially strong memories of the earrings hanging, almost camouflaged on wooden beach supports; while she was putting them there, a rogue wave tried to wash the earrings away, but only managed to wet her jeans and shoes; there was no way she was letting go of her precious jewellry!
We also had the chance to capture Lorna’s two children, Maya and Johanna at the beach.
