It was July and the middle of my very hectic wedding season, which i love…… but it made a nice change when I was asked to photograph the celebrations at a Surprise wedding anniversary party. Jen and Tony have been married for 40 years (Wow!) and their daughter-in-law contacted me and asked me if I would attend for a couple of hours and capture the fun and celebrations of their family and friends. The party was held at the Warwickshire Golf and Country Club in Leek Wooton between Kenilworth and Warwick.
I love doing this sort of thing. To be honest, the pressure is off and I can concentrate on people watching and capturing the little things that make the celebrations special. Anyway, here goes with a small taster of my images ……
These are just a few of the photos that I took at Jen and Tony’s anniversary party. Whenever I attend a celebration, a special event or a wedding I usually post the full range of edited images on a password protected area of my main website. You can see Jen and Tony’s images by clicking here and entering the password, which you’ll need to get from Jen or Tony. From there, you can simply enjoy the memories or if you see a photo you’d like to buy you can do so through the website directly or by contacting me on 07739096632.
Meanwhile, if you’d like to find out about booking me to do the photography for your own special event anywhere in Warwickshire please give me a call.
In a spare 5 minutes over the weekend I took the opportunity to grab a few more photos or Jessica 🙂 …
Below are a couple of my favourite shots taken whilst Jessica played in a wheat field over in the Cotswolds.
Last week I got together with a few professional photographer colleagues (including Hannah Duffy from Cambridge and Lisa Scott from Rugby) to share ideas and experiences. That’s one of the nice things about good pro photographers – they aren’t afraid of the competition, they realise the benefits of working together to assist each other and share ideas! Anyway, we took the opportunity to do some ‘urban’ style photography using a professional model called Holly. We each had our own ideas and styles. Here are some of my shots after I applied a touch of editing trickery …….
Regular readers of this blog and people who know me will realise that this isn’t the sort of photography that I do all of the time but I think many of you would be surprised at the variety of work that I do take on. After all, even though I’m known as a wedding photographer around 25-30% of the work I take on is corporate and family portrait based. If you fancy having your own contemporary portraits, perhaps a street theme or something else of an artistic nature and you’ve got an idea of what you’d like to achieve but don’t know how, please give me a call (07739096632).
Meanwhile, I love to receive comments on my posts. Please take a moment to add a comment (click below). I will always approve sensible comments and do my best to reply and put the comments ‘live’ within a few days.
Lily the guide dog + family – part 1
After a very hectic, fun filled, photography-packed December I’d promised myself a break … but I simply couldn’t resist taking on a few extra bookings – particularly ones including very cute 4 legged pets 🙂
… so I guess my break will have to wait!
I was booked by a client , Pat, who I have known for years to photograph her & her family, including Lily – her guide dog.
Pat has been recovering after a major operation & wanted to celebrate her recovery with a family photographic session. She’d booked me for my top-family package which included up to 4 hours of photography. I had a great day with the whole family and, as you can imagine, took rather a lot of pictures which I’ll be editing over the next few days. For the lovers of four-legged friends I couldn’t resist giving you a quick sneaky peak at one of my favourite ones of Lily. Keep your eyes peeled for the rest soon 🙂
Ok, so you’ve not heard from me for a while ……Sorry about that!
Is it because I’ve been doing nothing and had nothing to say? ABSOLUTELY NOT!
Far from it, in-fact. I’ve been SO BUSY that I simply haven’t had the time to tell you what I’ve been doing. Anyway, I’m now taking a break from the photography for a few days and I’m going to be adding a few more images from some of the events and weddings I’ve been doing in the last two months. I’ve been photographing weddings, Christmas parties, doing family photo shoots and doing some corporate photography in Warwickshire and Coventry …. and winning several awards for photos that I’ve been entering into international competitions for the SWPP (Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers) experts to judge! More blog posts with more images to look at will follow VERY soon …..
Paul and his cousin, Tracey, booked me a couple of weeks ago to do a very quick photo shoot for around 30 members of their family. Little did we all know that it would be the first weekend of snow this November! Still, we went ahead as planned and met at the Rugby Town FC ground with family members travelling from all around the country. We worked quickly so that nobody froze to death but I have to say that I couldn’t really feel my fingers very well for a while afterwards. Here’s a taster image from the ones I took this afternoon and more will be appearing on my main website.
For family members who want to view the images properly please click here and enter the password (grandma’s first name – all lower case letters).
If you are looking to order any prints in time for Christmas please make sure I’ve got the order by Friday 10th December at the very latest. Thank you.
If you want a family photo shoot in and around Warwickshire, or if you have any kind of family celebration coming up, please don’t hesitate to contact me. My number is 07739096632.
I was delighted to be asked by a local Coventry business woman to do some new photographs for her. Theresa owns Kendalls Deli in Earlsdon Street (highly recommended for all sorts of fresh foods ….. and I can personally recommend them as a great place to stop for lunch time coffee and snacks). She asked me to do some up-to-date photos that she can use personally and for her business activities. I set up my studio equipment at her home and we set to. Here’s a small taster …..
I’m really pleased with the way the photos came out. Of course, we did many more than this and Theresa will be able to view them on my main website in her personal gallery of images. We had good fun. Theresa was relaxed and comfortable in her own home …. and another advantage is that she was able to change clothes to give a variety of ‘looks’.
Here’s what Theresa had to say about me on her recent Twitter post ….
Really impresssed by photos taken of me by Victoria Jane Photography and it was fun, recommend them highly!
– Thanks Theresa!
