Kind words !

Lovely review from a recent happy client;

David provided a great and very affordable service. Prior to the wedding he talked through what would work and then personally delivered the photos on disc in two formats afterwards, elegantly packaged with some prints as well. During the day he was very professional and had a great rapport with the guests without being obtrusive. David captured all the best moments. Thanks, Jonathan and Charlotte

Why is it called a wedding breakfast

A question I’m often asked is why is a wedding breakfast called a breakfast, when it mostly happens in the afternoon, after the wedding ceremony. Obviously it is a tradition but one that dates back several hundred years in most Christian countries.

It is claimed that it dates back to pre-Reformation times, when the wedding service was usually a Eucharistic Mass and that the bride and bridegroom would therefore have been fasting before the wedding in order to receive communion. Thus the first meal as a married couple would be breaking their fast ! And also the priest or the minister would bless the food, which would be the first the happy couple would enjoy together, as husband and wife.

Today wedding breakfasts are a celebratory meal, taken with family and guests at the reception. And of course they vary from couple to couple. Some choose a traditional format with fine dining and a carefully thought out menu, including seating plans and a top table. While others, decided upon an informal buffet and party, reflecting diversities within modern families today.

As a wedding photographer I try and capture the details of the wedding breakfast before guests sit down, the arrival of the bride and groom and then return to the room for any speeches. The wedding breakfast is usually an important part of the day for family, relatives and friends as it gives them all a time to sit and relax and talk with each other. Also it gives me a chance to have a little break as well, during, what often is a very busy day !

2019 update – I’ve still got a few of these left – the 15 x 10 inches is £100, while the 18 x 12 is £150 – drop me a line for more details.

……..

I am really excited to get these online in time for Christmas, my close ups of some Autumn Leaves. I shot them on a light table, so you can really see the details in the leaf structure inside and all the amazing colours. They are available in two sizes; 15 x 10 inches and the larger 18 x 12 and in limited editions of just 20. I’ve already sold a few but of course I’ll include the unique numbered certificate with each purchase.

They are Giclee prints and produced on Fuji Fine Art Museum rough 300gsm paper by Loxley in Glasgow. They are a matt type print and absolutely beautiful. My order deadline for Christmas delivery is 15th December.

So, do you photograph proms?

So, do you photograph proms? It’s a question I’ve been getting a lot lately.

Well, the answer is, “Most Definitely!”

A prom is an important milestone of school life. You will want quality prom pictures that will last for years. I’m your guy.

Unheard of in the UK 10 years ago, the prom is now the highlight of the year for school-leavers. Back in the day we didn’t have school proms to mark the completion of GCSEs and A-levels. We had end of exam discos if we were lucky. Now there are often ‘passing out’ celebrations for Year 11 students (aged 15-16) and Year 13 (aged 17-18) from no-frills dinners in school halls to bespoke extravaganzas in five-star venues with DJs, live music and of course a lot of dressing up.

A cultural phenomenon, that arrived from the US on the back of incredibly successful shows such as Glee, Hannah Montana and High School Musical, it has quickly become the norm here. So join the growing trend and arrange some professional photos of students with their best friends and mates together.

I offer a private service for friends and families to take photographs before you arrive at the prom, or on location. Traditionally the photo experience has been to shoot individuals or a student with their date. Often this is the photo that parents insist upon! But I’m more than happy to do larger groups and make the shoot fun – I know teens won’t want to hang around ages, so believe me, when I say I work quickly. I will take a variety of both candid and posed photographs, I have the experience to capture them in the best possible way.

All photos will be edited and placed in a password protected online gallery after the prom – useful for relatives to order prints. Also the collection will be available to download online at both full resolution for printing and web ready for social media. This is a fee based service and the cost depends on how long you need me and the distance I have to travel.

Trust me to create images and memories that will be remembered forever with our beautiful Liverpool prom photography.

Absolutely Fantastic! We booked David for our prom – it’s been a great couple of years and we really wanted a lasting memory of our friendship and the night. David was spot on with communications right from the initial request up until the photos were delivered. He had no problem with a group of friends clubbing together to get some pro photos – we didn’t trust the college to organise lol. And on the day, he was relaxed and happy to include any groups that we asked for. We were so pleased with the photos and couldn’t wait to share them. We have received some lovely comments from friends and family – he includes low-res versions and a store for physical prints. A very friendly and approachable person who clearly loves what he does, totally recommended” Miss S, Liverpool.

Wedding flowers

What is not to like? Always different and always wonderful. Obviously as a wedding photographer, I get to see a lot of flowers and bouquets and I love it. Often I get to met florists, doing the final touches to a big display and like me, they want the couple’s day to go perfect. Attention to detail and calmness is key.

A few of my favourites below.

D and W’s wedding at St Anthony of Padua Liverpool

It was an absolute delight to be the wedding photographer at D and W’s big day recently. They planned a small, traditional gathering at one of my favourite churches, St Anthony of Padua, here in Liverpool. An added bonus for me, it is just a mile away from my home. I had covered a christening at this splendid church a while back, so knew the layout and really looked forward to visiting again.

I met the Bride and Groom to be at the church just before a ceremony rehearsal, which gave everyone a chance to get to know each other and an opportunity to meet some other key people – the parents, bridesmaids and of course the priest.

Anyway, on to a few photographs!
