Half Price Autumn Photoshoots (Photographer Newcastle)

Well my lovelies after the summer that never was it's officially the first day of Autumn tomorrow, I can't quite believe that we're into Autumn already, it doesn't seem like 5 minutes since I was sitting looking out of my studio window at the snow starting to fall and wishing that it was spring.

So in celebration of Autumn lets make it a fantastic one with a voucher for a half priced mini photoshoot to showcase you, your family, your partner, your children, or even your beloved pet against a background of Autumn splendour.

To claim your voucher you have to click here and that'll take you to my Facebook Business Page, the first post at the top of the page should be the button you need to click on to claim your voucher, all you have to do is drop me an email at or call me on 07918 121838 or you can message me on my Facebook page also.

The sessions are available at the following locations, Jesmond Dene, Saltwell Park, Leazes Park or on the beach at Tynemouth, you know the one next to Crusoes right?

If you have been to Byker Metro Station lately you might have seen a collage featuring this photograph which won a competition and has been installed in the station.

I shot that 3 days before Christmas last year at lovely Carolyn and Claytons wedding in the afternoon light it looks almost like a summers day.  It's certainly a great place for photos whatever the weather is like.

As an aside I won award number 66 yesterday for this photo

 those 66 awards have been collected since last September when I first plucked up the courage to enter competitions, they're judged by other professional photographers from all over the world and for me it's so lovely when I win because without the wonderful clients I have who let me create art with them none of it would even be achievable.

So don't delay, get clicking on that link, claim your voucher and book your mini session, weekdays/weekends/evenings or theres always the October half term, lets go have some leaf kicking fun and create some memories which will live forever.

The wedding of Esther and Laurence at St Oswalds church and Durham Castle, Durham

So, on Friday I was booked to photograph Laurence and Esther from the moment the left the church until they sat down for dinner, now obviously it's not the norm to have a wedding booking within those time-frames and I can hear you asking "Just what do you cover on a 3 hour wedding booking, is it really going to be exciting and inspiring and beautiful or will it just be a huge rush"?

Being a wedding photographer for me is about representing the love of 2 people and of course all couples are different, some couples want a 12 hour coverage, a coffee table album and a storybook album but some couples just want 2 or 3 hours of their wedding day photographed so for me it's important that those 3 hours count.

I was shooting at St Oswalds Church and Durham Castle, it's no secret they're favourite venues of mine, particularly the castle as it's soaked and baked in history (and if course it has Harry Potter connections too).

So, the challenge, to record the love and marriage of Esther and Laurence in 3 hours, want to see some photographs?  Here's their story...

Esther and Laurence may you have so many happy and wonderful years together, thanks for letting me be your wedding photographer and proving that 3 hours of wedding photography can still mean wonderful photographs.

If you're getting married soon why not come and have a chat with me about your wedding photography, you can either click through to my website wedding photographer newcastle or you can email
