I've just taken delivery of a very exciting new product - a stunning new album from a brand new supplier!! The albums are coming from an incredible company across the pond in the good old USofA. The albums come in different sizes including 10x10 and our display album format, the great 12x9. They also can come presented in this stunning printed album box - which will look absolutely amazing on a book shelf. Your album story really does start from the box with this company! Printed on fine art archival papers with archive inks the album has a totally different... Continue reading
Bec and Rich had a lovely intimate wedding at the Moat House is Acton Trussell on the 20th December. I love Christmas weddings, especially when the weather is kind to us, as they always have such a lovely romantic feel about them. Rich arrived in a gorgeous split-screen VW, which was a total surprise to him (bless Bec for surprising him like that!!) and it really set the tone for the day. Both Bec and Rich's families are absolutely lovely and I really enjoyed spending their day with them and can't wait to see them both tomorrow for them to... Continue reading
Sian and David were married on the 27th December at The Moat House, Acton Trussell. It was a gorgeous day, especially considering the weather we're all suffering at the moment in the UK, and we all had a great time together. I was only with Sian and David for a relatively short time as one thing was very clear - they wanted no "fuss or faff!!" and I think what we put together was absolutely perfect :o) Everything went great and I can't wait to show Sian and David there photos, and before I put together a complete blog post...

Kate and Mike were married on the 18th December at the very funky and quirky Custard Factory, Birmingham. Kate and Mike found me after weeks of trying to find a photographer over the net from where they live in Kuwait and once they stumbled across my site they simply fell in love with the stunning black and whites and booked straight away! I first met the stunning couple along with Kate's mom back in August when they were over for a couple of weeks trying to get all the wedding plan's together and I think it's safe to say we...

On Sunday whilst I was winning the Leamington Brass Band Association contest with Langley Band Les and Ste of Barry James Photography photographed a gorgeous, intimate Greek Christening in Birmingham for me. The enquiry for the Christening at St Andrew's Church, Birmingham and Moxhull Hall Hotel came in just two weeks ago and it was great to be asked back by the Michael Family to photograph another of their families events after previously photographing two weddings and one Christening in the past 3 years. The photos have come out absolutely fantastically, Les and Ste really did do an amazing job!... Continue reading
Michelle and Panayiotis were married on 30th August 2009, however, as it was a severely wet day we decided on doing a reshoot last week before we completed the album and it was a fantastic decision. It was a gorgeous morning in Birmingham and we had a fantastic time in Brindley Place. Michelle wanted to go for a very traditional, classical feel to their shots, but I think I put my own wee twist on things! The album is in design process this week and will be with Michelle and Panayiotis before Christmas - and it really is going to... Continue reading
Charl and Farm booked me at the Sandon Hall Bridal Fayre last year. Fortunately Les of Barry James Photography wasn't there so when we got talking to Charl and her mom, along with Rebecca, whom Les and Ste photographed a few years ago, they booked me - and with how well we all hit it off on the day it was definitely the best thing that could have happened. The wedding took place at the beautiful New Hall Hotel on 31st October. It was a lovely late wedding with a fantastic fun atmosphere. Everything felt very relaxed and everyone had... Continue reading
I opened the post this morning to be greated by a stunning and totally amazing thank you card from Amy and David Middleton, my stunning 19th September wedding which I'm sure you'll remember seeing here. Amy and David are an absolutely lovely couple and it was such a pleasure to be part of their stunning wedding. Amy made all of the wedding stationery herself and did an amazing job, and to have my own personal memento of this is amazing. Here are a couple of quick shots of the card which is now proudly on display in our viewing room.... Continue reading
Georgina and Simon have become good friends of mine since I had the pleasure of photographing their wedding at Weston Park back in a very wet July 2007. Georg and Si were blessed with a gorgeous new addition to the family earlier this year, Tommy O'Connor. The 1st Novemeber was the first opportunity we'd managed to get together and I went over to their lovely cottage in Penn complete with the camera and got some great shots of the little man. Here are a few of my favourites - hope you like them. Can't wait to hear what Georg and... Continue reading
Eleni and Kyri are getting married next year in Birmingham and their gorgeous engagement celebration was on the 25th October. We had a fantastic time Abbey Park and thankfully we avoided the rain and then we headed to the Leicester Marriot for the ceremony and reception. Here is just a little taster of a few of the photos from the day, more will follow later this week! I can't wait to see Eleni and Kyri and show them their wonderful engagement photos - they really are stunning! sj.p Continue reading
Cheers Chris! The energy was definitely there with the band, can't wait to do the promo shots for their upcoming studio work in the coming weeks...

Mezzotonic are one of the country's up and coming big acts! They are an awesome band with such a fresh sound they really are going to go far... I have known the guys from the band for some years and it was an absolute pleasure to get down to the Wharf10 in Walsall a few nights ago to watch a live set, and to capture a great set of live shots on my beloved newly acquired Canon 5DmarkII!! I have always been a Nikon guy and also this isn't going to change I do like the Canon to work with... Continue reading
Cheers James! The album is incredible too. It seems to be playing up on my server atm but I will send an email to have a look later when I've sorted it!!

Cheers James, they are a seriously funky band! The bassist has a very cool style and the guitarist has a different approach too. All in they are an incredible band!!

Here is a quick slideshow of the gig I photographed on Friday at the Wharf in Walsall. Mezzotonic are a truly great band and are going to be huge there's no doubt about it! I've known the guys for a few years now and they just keep going from strength to strength. Having just recorded an LP, from which comes the track in the background of the slideshow, they are getting air time on some of the regions biggest radio stations and really sounding great. I will blog the images later today but in the meantime enjoy this brief slideshow...... Continue reading
Amy and David were married on the 19th September at St Thomas' Church in Walton-on-the-Hill in Staffordshire with their reception at The Moat House, Acton Trussell. I have already posted a little taster of their wedding (which can be found here ) but as Amy and David collected their album from me on Monday evening, another stunning Bellissimo Album - which can be seen here! The whole day was absolutely fantastic and we all had such an amazing time together - as can be clearly seen in the photos. I also think it's safe to say that Amy and David... Continue reading
The AFBlakemore are one of my commercial clients and I have been working with them on different projects both for AFB and the SPAR Group for several years. You may well have seen previous posts on my old blog with work I've previously done for the group, if not head over...there's been some good events! This morning I was tasked with photographing one of the brand new trucks which has just been sign written after the custom build by Grays Adams. The SPAR Group is a proud sponsor of UK Athletics and are one of the primary sponsors for the... Continue reading
Rebecca and Nick were married on the 18th September at Christchurch Burntwood with a delightfully relaxed reception at The Old School House, Weeford. The wedding was a wonderful sunny day and although I was on what is a traditional coverage for me it was a great day and we all certainly enjoyed ourselves. The reception is a venue I had worked already this year but I hadn't had the pleasure of working at Christchurch for some months. In that time the previous vicar David has retired and the new vicar is an absolute blast - Rebecca and Nick described her... Continue reading
Emma and Jon were married on Saturday at the beautiful village church in Edgmond, Shropshire with their reception at Hadley Park House. Emma and Jon are a lovely couple and they booked me after meeting me last year at the Sandon Hall Bridal Fayre last October and I think it's safe to say from when we first met we definitely struck a chord with one another and it has made the whole experience as fantastic as ever. I distinctly remember Emma calling me up the week after the fayre and with both herself and Jon on the end of the... Continue reading
Amy and David were married on Saturday at St Thomas' Church in Walton-on-the-Hill with their stunning reception at The Moat House, Acton Trussell. Amy and David are such a fantastic couple and this was reflected throughout all of their friends and family too. Everyone had such an amazing day and it was a pleasure to be a part of it with them. I am only part way through editing their photos but I wanted to share a few of my favourites before I get ready for a day in London shooting for RJW tomorrow. The bride and bridesmaid dresses were...

Kat and Gem's wedding was yesterday at Walsall Registry Office and to give you a little taster here are just a couple of shots from the Continue reading
You're welcome - I can't wait for Saturday! As long as the weather holds out for us we're all going to have a great time :o) Hope all the final plans are falling into place!!
