ASWPP Panel of images. http://www.trupix.co.uk/blog/2015/2/my-20-favourite-wedding-pictures-of-2014  

Update 

The images below have recently earned me the title ASWPP

I am now officially the highest awarded wedding photographer in South Yorkshire, accredited by the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers. 

_________________________

20 images from 2014 I'm sending to my Mentor for appraisal.

With 2014 just about over and only one wedding left in this years calendar I have had a look back over the year and must say Ive had some beautiful couples.

I have pulled out 20 images to send to my mentor for his critical and expert eye.

I am hoping to submit these images to the SWPP for the higher level qualification. It took me over 4 years of study and work to pass the first level and now another 2 years to reach this standard. ( time will tell if Im there yet... )

Images are Judged on 10 criteria and must score very high in each category to reach the required standard.

The 10 areas are Impact, Creativity and Style, Composition, Presentation, Centre of Interest, Lighting,Colour balance,Technical excellence, Photographic Technique, Story telling and subject matter.

I am making comments below mainly about what Im trying to achieve with each image and a bit of the thinking and planning behind the set up.

As you can see theres a lot to think about before pressing the shutter button,

 

Image 1 - Hair and Make up.

I often take some images of the actual hair and make up however, I like to set up a chair where I have control of the light, pose the make up artist and bride take the image and then get out the way to let people get on with getting ready. 

Here I have combined the dress shot with the Bride in Hair and make-up to enhance the story. I am using the natural light from the window as the main light, however I didn't want a silhouette here as that would have lost too many details and so I have used fill flash bounced of the wall behind me to provide a soft second light.  I have kept distractions down to a minimum by ensuring there as no clutter in the image to distract from the main focal points. I also like the bride and MUAs connection and expression.

 

 

Image 2 Bride in Mirror.

There are quite a few cliche wedding images and the bride in a mirror is certainly one of them. The brides hands are carefully placed to ensure all 10 digitals are viewable, and the brides bracelet is in the correct position. The soft lighting is created using a shoot through umbrella to delicately over power the natural light. I chose not to remove the ornament from the image as I thought it help fill the negative space and it helps to create a line from the brides reflected eyes to her own. The clock I left in as it tells the time the image was taken, ( 40 minutes prior to the ceremony ).

The colour toning of the image was used to further soften the image and give a slight romance to it.

 

Image 3 - Almost ready.

Knowing whats going to happen next at a wedding comes from experience. Although this image is not posed, it is planned. 

I have rearranged the room to provide enough space for the bride and her dress, facing her towards the window allows me to make the room look organised. On the bed and behind me are the suit cases and all other items that come with a bride. The lighting again is mainly coming from the windows however fill flash is being used to balance the light.

In post processing here I have removed a few cables and plug sockets to keep the distractions to a minimum,

 

 

 

Image 4- Bridal Portrait.

A very classic looking bride requires a classic pose. There are lots of little things to notice about the pose and lighting which helps the bride look her best. Arms on hips, twisting hips toward camera more than shoulders, putting the left knee in front of the right all help to help to enhance the brides figure. The main light here is off camera flash, and the bride is looking just right of the light stand ( not turning too far as I didn't want full profile.)   a fill light is being using to give a soft feeling to the light, also of course there is the natural back light from the windows.  Care has been taken here to include as many details as possible, earrings, necklace, watch, bracelet, handbag and flowers are all visible.

 

 

 

 

Image 5- Grooms portrait.

Using the window as the main light cutting across the groom is great to add extra mood into this moody shot. Here I'm shooting through a door into a corridor, and using the lines of the door to frame the groom. Its a casual thoughtful pose taken pre-ceromony.  Black and white is used here to reduce any colour distraction from the image such as the picture on the wall, or coloured carpet. With hands in pockets I carefully check the white of the sleeve cuffs are showing, this adds space between the arm and trousers. On the grooms left wrist is a watch he has just been given from his bride.

 

 

 

Image 6-Running bride and Groom.

Adding some movement into images is a great way to give it a little life and character. Of course the idea is to look like the Bride and Groom are running down the hip towards the camera. In fact they only take just one step, this helps in lots of ways. It helps me control focus, light, and posing. The bride starts with her hand in front of her holding the dress and then whooshes it out to give the feeling of speed. Framing has been taken into account here by placing the couple so the tree behind them helps them to be more featured in the image.

 

 

 

Image 7- A quiet Kiss.

Here Im using all the lines in the image to bring you towards the action. I have selected a telephoto lens so I am able to both nicely frame the couple as well as cropping out cars and people, this is next to a busy public road so the choices were critical to the success of the image.  

 

 

 

 

Image 8 - First Party.

After the first dance comes the first party. This image has won a competition this year entitled "Their big day."

This is a four light set up,two of which you can see to the left and right, there is a third over to my left shoulder, and another on my camera for fill. 

Getting close to the action and yet also getting the room in is important to capture the atmosphere so I have selected a super wide angle lens and I am stood on a chair over looking the action. For this one shot the bride and groom turned to face me as they were dancing and I was able to capture the moment.

 

Image 9- Couple in Corridor.

Lots more leading lines on this image all drawing you into the couple. Ive taken a low angle here to help dramatise the composition. The lines on the  right side start on the corners, with the lines on the left starting on the thirds. I have the bride in perfect profile with the groom at two thirds being careful not to let his nose pass his cheek line. Lighting is from a large soft box help by an assistant. Because Im shooting with a wide angle lens to emphasise the lines, I have to be careful the bride pulls in her legs. If I don't they will look huge. I didn't want to lose her feet altogether as it would have looked unbalanced.

 

Image 10- A thought full moment.

Here I have the Bride and Groom in the bridal suite. I am using a video light colour balanced to tungsten shining on the the couples faces. The rest of the light in the room is daylight, which appears blue in the camera.

Its important here I hold the light  to my right, this broad lights the groom making him look heavier in the face, and give the bride a beauty light position with helps emphasise check bones, and is face slimming.

 

 

 

 

Image 11 - Night time 

Evening shots can be tricky and take a little setting up. With my camera on a tripped I have taken an exposure reading of the building, and composed the shot. The bride and grooms head is place away from the distracting windows, and I have used an umbrella to help emphasis them as the background is quite dramatic.  A flash has been placed behind the couple to give them a rim light, this further helps to separate them from the background. My main light is 45 degrees to my left, using a soft box, as i didn't want the light to be too contrasty. 

The bride and groom are not quite kissing to enable the backlight to come through. The grooms hand holding the brolly would have been better placed a little further forward.

 

 

Image 12 - full length bride in bridal suite.

 

The composition of this image is called a Golden spiral, this makes it very easy on the eye. It depicts a quiet moment in the Bridal prep just before putting on the veil. I have balanced the daylight here with flash filling the room, this keeps a nice sharp edge on the bride and all the detail in the shot.

 

 

 

 

Image 13 - Groom and Back to the future DeLorean DMC-12.

 Getting all the details in this car was of course important, from flux capacitor to thingy ma bobs, so using a super wide angle lens enables me to make sure everything is sharp in frame. The Grays journal is placed to add to the story. The outside was a little distracting so a little motion blur has been added in post.

 

 

Image 14- Bride and Dress.

Ive covered about 400 weddings now, and in all that time Ive only had 3 brides who have chosen a shorter length dress. I wanted to get the idea of  fun and carefree into the image to match the brides personality, as well as showing of the dress. Shot with a carefully chosen shutter speed to ensure the image was sharp, I diligently explained to the bride how to work her dress, thank fully her guests were not present to see me acting like a numpty.

The original shot was taken landscape however I used a square crop to draw more attention to the bride, she is slightly placed to the left of the frame to balance the image.

 

 

 

Image 15 - Bride and groom on Bridge.

Careful composition surrounds the bride and groom with foliage, and I'm using the bridge as leading lines to help the viewer peek in at their little moment.

Ive used a little artistic license with the autumn colours here as the greens were too overpowering in the original image. The vignette is used to further draw you towards the couple.

 

 

 

Image 16 - in the rain.

 

This is the same set up as image 11, with the added interest of the reflection in the puddle and the rain...

The buildings are placed to help frame the bride and groom.

To the naked eye the sky was black, however with using a long exposure time I have been able to get the detail in the sky. The flash freezes the rain as it falls.

 

 

 

Image 17 - Tree tunnel.

 

The set up here was actually more complicated than it looks, I have two strobes positioned behind the bride and groom to light and bring out the detail in the trees, and a third to light the bride and groom.

The trees are drawing together as are the bride and groom, and I'm also using the leading lines of the metal frame, and the path to further draw the viewer into the image. 

 

 

 

Image 18 - Hug

 

Im stood on a chair, using a telephoto lens with a shallow depth of field to soften the background. This shot is  simply to catch the love between the couple. 

 

 

Image 19- secret dancing

 

Shot with available light and a little pop of fill flash I asked the couple to dance in the room as if on their first dance, this gives some feeling of movement with the image. There is quite of bit of cleaning up done in post on this image to get everything to look clean and bright. The image was shot with a wide angle lens so I had to be careful to ensure the lines of building and the windows were all kept straight with as little distortion as possible.

 

 

 

Image 20 - Cutting the cake.

 

As well as photographing the actual cake cutting, I often get a more controlled shot earlier in the day. Using multiple points of connection between the bride and groom ( hands, hug, and kiss ) it helps to enhance the feeling of togetherness, whilst surrounding them with sweet stuff.

There was a window to my left which is lighting the cake and the background curtains, and I'm using on camera bounced fill flash to light the sweet cart which would otherwise have been in shadow.

 

 

I hope you have enjoyed reading this blog post, if you have any questions about the images or about my photography in general it would be great to hear from you.

Staindrop Lodge Hotel

 

Today I am featuring a wedding venue which I love to photograph at. Not only is is on my doorstep, and so is my local, but it is also where I photographed my very first paid wedding. That was way back in 2007 which seems like an age ago now.

The couple were over the moon with the results and although I don't have any of their images to hand I can share some images below specifically taken to show of the venue.

Staindrop Lodge was built in 1806 by George Newton who named it after the village of Staindrop in County Durham where he was born in 1761. It remained the home of the members of the Newton family for over a century until 1920. George Newton, his son Thomas, his grandson Thomas Chambers Newton, and his great granddaughter Kate Newton all lived here.

In 1904 the house was substantially rebuilt by Thomas Chambers Newton, and in 1946 it was taken over for use by the board of directors of Newton Chambers and their guests.

Having been used as a head office for the Newton Chambers Company, it was later converted to a restaurant, small hotel and function venue.

September 2002 saw Staindrop Lodge reopen after more than two years of major building and refurbishment work.

Now a landmark bar, brasserie and hotel, influenced by the Art Deco design movement, we have created a venue ‘Open to All’ where quality of service and an informal, comfortable ambience is a paramount prerequisite.

Bump photography http://www.trupix.co.uk/blog/2015/2/bump-photography A little Bump.

 

A couple of months ago I photographed Chris and Natalies wedding, and it was lovely to be able to spend another hour with them on Saturday morning.

I popped over with my portable studio kit and after re-arranging their house got to work on creating some images.

I am currently in the process of putting together a new-born photography website and am on the look out for models that will be aged between 4 and 14 days old, so if you know anyone who may be interested in this be sure to let me know.

If you would like to have your own high quality photo session in your house, drop me an e-mail to find out more...

Wedding album leaves its home, to go to a better place. http://www.trupix.co.uk/blog/2015/1/wedding-album-leaves-its-home-to-go-to-a-better-place Wedding book Grows up and leaves home...

 

Its may seem a strange thing but handing over a clients wedding book is not an easy thing to do. I spend so many hours planning, creating the images, editing the photographs, and then designing the pages, that once I receive the final product I feel I want keep it.

Its feels a little like handing over your baby for adoption. Ok that is probably going too far...

 

Before my book left I took some pictures of it to remind me of the times we had shared through out its creation.

It was a strong good looking chap, with its Maple Cover and Large Crystal insert, I was sure it would keep warm and safe with its beautifully crafted matching Maple Sleeve. As with all my creations it went away with a lifetime binding warranty.

 

It didn't leave alone,  a smaller 30 x 20cm copy book, and some tiny little cute books left with it.

My book had only left for its new home a day and this is the wonderful message I received from its new guardian.

 

Hi Rob

Hope you’re ok.

We got our wedding album last night – wow!! Thank you so so much! We couldn’t be happier with it. It’s so so gorgeous and really tells the story of our amazing day! We love it so much! Thankyou. Can’t wait to show all our family and friends. The album really captures all our amazing memories and we’ll treasure it forever – thankyou!

My Mum is equally as delighted with her album! Thank you also for the calendar – what an amazing surprise! It has pride of place on our wall! Plus the mini albums are so cute – and we have already started giving them out!

Thankyou also for being so great throughout the whole process – before, on the wedding day and since - for being really helpful and friendly, always answering all of my questions and making the whole thing so fun and easy!

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone who was looking for a wedding photographer!

Deb

 

 

At least I know its now in the place it was meant to be, and I can rest assured it will be well looked after.

It would be wonderful if you entrusted me to create for you, your very own family heirloom, why not contact me and ask if Im available on your special day.

Sisters have a photograph together, and a little story. http://www.trupix.co.uk/blog/2015/1/sisters-have-a-photograph-together-and-a-story Two sisters, and a lovely little story.

 

 

It was the eve before Christmas day in 1941.The house was not as modern as they are today , it had a cellar which you had to go down stone steps to get any coal ,and where the copper was to do the washing. It Was very frightening at night time if the children had to go down as there was times when they had to use a candle which was stuck on a tin plate with a little of the wax, and it threw strange shadows onto the walls. 
Above that was one small living room that had a small coal fire if the mother had any money to buy some. The four children who lived there with their parents were told not to expect a lot of presents on Christmas day , but they might have a very special present by the next day .Also in the living room was a small wooden table and only three chairs, so when it came to having a meal the children had to stand up. The family was very poor, as was all the other people who lived near them ,but the mother did her best to make them happy, by helping them make paper chains to hang from the ceiling .The children's father worked in the steel works but 
did not get a big wage like they do today. 
Above that room was only one bed room so it was very crowded at bed time. There was two large beds, the parents slept in one and the children slept what is known as top to tail , pity anyone who wee'd in bed when it was too cold to go to the out side toilet. 
Well on this Christmas eve everyone went to bed , the children wondering what the special gift would be. 
But on getting up that day it was just the same as any other Christmas ,until later in the day mother went upstairs to bed, Little did the children know that the special gift was on it's way. Suddenly they heard a baby cry, Janet the eldest girl was able to hold the baby girl when it was only half hour old ,oh how excited she was to find it was a baby girl and now she had a sister called Carole ,who is very special,  

lots of love .


The End By Janet .x x x x x

Wortley hall wedding photography http://www.trupix.co.uk/blog/2014/11/wortley-hall-wedding-photography Autumn wedding photography at Wortley hall

 

 

Daniels and Rachels wedding was a fantastic occasion which took place at one my regular venues. Even though I cover a number a number of weddings here every year there are always different images to capture. The grounds are probably the best in Barnsley.

 

Daniel looking great with his groomsmen. I decided to use the courtyard for these shots as it offered a different backdrop to where the main photography was to take place later.

Rachel and her bridesmaids...  Wortleys wedding suite is a good size and has two large windows and a fourposter bed.

catching a sneaky kiss during the signing of the register..  who told them they could do that  ;-)

Heres a small selection of the group shots which were taken, its great to capture personality, story, and fun with the groups.

This is the first time I've actually ever seen a double lay across, I can't even remember how we got to this...

 

Below you will see two sets of photos with the bride and groom, they were taken at the same time, however one set is playing with the light to give it a more dramatic effect...

 

first available light...

 

and then flash...

 

The final collection of images are the ones taken in the evening... 

 

 

I hope you enjoyed this little post, why not get in touch to come and see me about your big day...

The thoughts of a romantic sunset and some photographs with Carla and Oliver was a pleasant one, however, even though the images don't show it, we were all attacked by 1000s of midges, ( carefully photo-shoped from the images... ) Although I always believe in going the extra mile to capture the image some of my clients often have different ideas. Full marks to Carla and Oliver for digging in and managing to to still look in love whilst being eaten alive....

Tankersley Manor is a fantastic four star hotel near Sheffield. Just off J36 of the M1, the hotel is close to the bustling city centre but also on the doorstep to some of the country's most picturesque scenery.

The hotel is built around a former 17th century residence with many of the original features being retained including exposed wooden beams and Yorkshire stone windowsills.

Weddings

Let’s get something straight: We are not a hotel.

Yes, we do have 22 bedrooms for you and your guests, but the experience is quite different. When you have your wedding at Stubton Hall, you’ll get the whole place exclusively to yourself. All the rooms, 24 acres of gardens and grounds: everything. We wouldn’t dream of having two events at the same time.

‘One of the hundred best wedding venues in the world’
Brides Magazine

Stubton Hall is licensed for civil ceremonies and there are a number of elegant rooms to choose from. The Music Room, with it enormous windows overlooking the parterre, is perfect for weddings of up to 100 guests. For larger groups, our magnificent Orangery can seat up to 210 people for the grandest wedding breakfast. There’s plenty of room for a live band, a DJ and a proper dance floor. So go ahead and dance the night away.

Afterwards, our comfy Chocolate Bar stays open late for house guests… after all, it’s your house for the evening and you’ve got the whole place to yourselves.

One thing we hear from our guests time after time is, “What a beautiful setting!”. We agree. Your friends will love sneaking out to the lake or walking through the gardens in the moonlight. And the south terrace, with its 300 foot water feature, is a truly stunning place for your wedding photos.

Take a trip through the house and gardens with our online Brochure.

The very best in country house style

New Born Baby Photos http://www.trupix.co.uk/blog/2014/4/new-born-baby-photos New Born Baby Photos

 

 New born photography is quite a specialist job, and normally one I approach with hesitation.

However when the baby is your first Grandson its a little harder to decline.

Im really looking forward to getting a nice large framed print of one of the images below, not sure which to choose at the moment.

The babies name is Elijah, and he is just 8 days old...

Wortley Hall Wedding Photography

 

Hi, just sharing a few images from Iian and Katys recent wedding at Wortley Hall.

I love photographing weddings at Wortley because the grounds always provide an amazing variety, and the staff are always helpful ( even the cleaning ladies who keep a clean room open for us to use).

Thought I would make this post all monochrome for a change.

One of the most beautiful wedding venues in Yorkshire.

This grand stately home offers a fantastic venue for wedding receptions, civil weddings and civil partnerships in South Yorkshire.

Exchange your vows in this historical building against a beautiful backdrop and rolling green landscapes. Let Wortley Hall make it the happiest day of your life.

Set in 26 acres of formal grounds and woodland, Wortley Hall is the perfect backdrop for your wedding. You can relax in the knowledge that our expertise and experience, combined with friendly and helpful staff, will help make your wedding dreams a reality.
