Nicola and Chris Yew Lodge East Grinstead West Sussex: Sussex Location Photographer

Good Morning,

Well it has certainly been a busy few days and I think the weather was very kind for the South East and Sussex Wedding Photographers!

I recently photographed the pre-wedding shoot of Nicola and Chris at the lovely Yew Lodge in East Grinstead West Sussex. Chris is a landscape gardener and I think he felt right at home in the beautiful grounds of the lodge and having visited their home I know how fabulous his own garden is!

We had a great time walking, photographing and chatting and it made for a very lovely evening indeed.

Have a great day and watch out for some images of the lovely May this week.

Master Photographer National Awards 2011!! : Sussex Portrait Photographer

Good Afternoon from a very excited photographer in East Grinstead!

I was informed this morning that two of my images have been awarded Merits in the Master Photographers Association National Awards 2011. One in Classical Portraiture and the other in Fine Art; I am so happy as these images will now be in the finals and I will be pitting my wits against some of the photographic legends. The standard of this competition is really high and to gain a merit and a place in the finals is quite something.

I am still excited and what a fabulous start to the weekend.

The Many Faces of Jess! : Kent Location Photography



I had a fantastic shoot yesterday creating some imagery for a project that I am working on. Unfortunately the images will not be posted anywhere publicly for some time and the only person that will get to see them is my Mentor. However, we had some fun at the end of the shoot and I had a few minutes to capture these images of the wonderful, vibrant and funny Jess; and as a collection they just make me laugh, so I thought I would post them here to hopefully bring a little cheer to your day.

Isn't she just brilliant; can't wait for the next shoot Jess.

Emma Tindley Couture East Grinstead, West Sussex: Sussex Location Photography

Good Afternoon,

I hope you have all had a good week and you have lots of nice things planned for the weekend. More imagery again today and this is the beautiful shop of Emma Tindley Couture based in East Grinstead. Emma was a finalist in the Young Designer of the Year awards and I am certainly not surprised as her dresses are exquisite. We are creating a collection of imagery that is going to be used for her new website; it is extremely exciting and I cannot wait to see the finished product that will show the collection we photographed in April, the shop interiors and the new collection that she is planning for next year at a very special location. I was very privileged to have a sneaky preview at some of her materials and the one shown here is a French Chantilly Lace, which has recently been used in some of Vera Wang's designs. I cannot remember the celebrity who wore it but the lace was used in a dress by Vera Wang that recently featured in Hello magazine; just how fab is that...love it! The lace is just sublime close up. Emma will be available for appointments commencing 3rd September, so if you are getting married next year take a look at her beautiful dresses; you will not be disappointed and they are a pleasure to photograph.

Happy Friday everyone,

Claire

Paula - East Grinstead Pregnancy Photography: Sussex Portrait Photographers

Good Morning,

A little more imagery today; Paula came to the studio for a secret pregnancy portrait session as she wanted to give her partner a piece of art for his birthday; and what better than a beautiful image of her carrying their beautiful baby girl.

Pregnancy is such a beautiful time and often gets overlooked; I just love the contours of a pregnant woman. She is carrying the miracle of a new life and this should really be celebrated.

Here is an image of Paula and she was quite happy for me to post it to my blog, and who wouldn't be; she is gorgeous!

Their little girl has now been born and I cannot wait to photograph her in the next couple of weeks.

Have a great day,

Claire


Czarina and Ragnar - Portrait Photography East Grinstead West Sussex: Sussex Portrait Photgraphers





Good Morning,

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and managed to enjoy some sunshine. Czarina and Ragnar had some engagements portraits done ahead of their wedding next year. We were meant to be on location but the weather was not kind so we decided on a studio session. It was so lovely to hear of their wedding plans and their love for each other just exudes from the images so their wedding day will be very special indeed.

Thank you for letting me be a part of of your engagement story and it was a real pleasure to photograph you.

I cannot believe we are in the middle of August already, where is the year going!

Grace Location Photography East Grinstead West Sussex

Good Morning,

Thought I would post some more imagery today; this was taken on a recent location shoot and I just love the wistful nature of the image. I have called it going home, look deep into the image and you will see why.

Enjoy your Sunday and I am having a client viewing day today, and I always enjoy those.

Lydia - Portrait Photography East Sussex

Good Morning,

Had the most fabulous day yesterday; I love this location and the array of photographic opportunities both inside and out just seems endless. Lydia has a timeless, classical beauty about her and it was hard to choose one for my blog, eventually I made a decision and here she is. The image was taken utilising the natural light available at the time with very little post production.

Have a great weekend whatever you are up to.
