CAMERA ROLL

derby family photographers

 

 

At last, I have been able to catch up on a few of those jobs that I have needed to do for ages, but was too busy to find five minutes! The most exciting of these jobs was sorting out our new window display pictures, which have been printed by the lovely people at John E Wright in Derby. Soon to be unveiled!

 

Steve has had the studio lights out with him on location this week, so I’ve been busy getting orders out to clients and editing from the weekend, including photography from a wedding vow renewal ceremony with a really lovely family in Mickleover, Derby, on Saturday. And there are two gigantic canvas prints from family portrait sessions, all cosy in their bubble wrap, waiting to be collected as I write.

 

On the PR and commercial photography front, Steve has certainly clocked up the miles this week, starting with a two-day shoot in Cumbria. Lots of people think that being a photographer is quite glamorous and, while it does (occasionally) have its moments, sometimes even less exciting things need photographing – an ingenious new type of plasterboard in this case!

 

After a flying visit to Derby and Birmingham to photograph an NHS training event, he then headed off down to Essex where he was booked to provide corporate awards night photography. He has also seen the launch of a new eco-house this week as well as various client meetings about upcoming projects.

 

We’ve got another busy weekend ahead, with appointments and viewings in the studio – including a Smash the Cake photoshoot for a little girl’s first birthday, which I’m extremely excited about! Pics to follow soon…

THIS WEEK

May 3rd, 2013 by

pet photography derby

 

Well, it’s been a very hectic few weeks for us, both in the studio and out and about with PR and commercial photography, so I’ve not had many spare minutes for blogging or social media updates – we’ve been too busy keeping our clients happy!

 

So, I’ve put together a little round-up of the last week’s activities. In the studio, I’ve been busy editing shoots, showing people their images and sending off orders for printing and framing – including three framed pictures of labradoodle Louis. He has just had the second of three pet photography photoshoots with us as a record of his growth from a small puppy.

 

And he wasn’t the only adorable pooch to be in front of our cameras recently, little Ned and his mummy/owner Sam had been in a couple of weeks back for a birthday photoshoot for Sam. She came in this week to view her pictures and choose her prints, which she was really happy with.

 

In between all of that, it is a really busy time of year for passport photos. We are getting lots of people asking us for passport photos of babies, as it is so much easier than trying to squeeze into a booth. And at £7.50, it is an ideal, hassle-free solution for parents booking holidays – even if I am slightly jealous after hearing all their exciting plans!

 

I also uploaded some family portrait photography to the client page of our website, and received a lovely email back.”Thank you so much, they really are amazing! I know my sister is going to be spoilt for choice. Thank you again, they had so much fun on the day and the photos are perfect!”

 

On the PR photography front, Steve has been driving all over the country on various shoots. He photographed some birds of prey which were on display at the opening of a new show-home in Leicestershire, before heading to Milton Keynes for some corporate headshot portraits. Also in his diary this week was the start of building work on a brand new nursery in Telford, a lady off on a charity walk in Shrewsbury, and some artificial grass in Staffordshire.

 

Steve was also commissioned to provide photography for a case study in Shepshed, Nottingham conference photography and awards night photography in the West Midlands. And he managed to squeeze in photography of the managing director of Ford UK on a visit to Nottingham and an artist visiting a school in Leicestershire.

 

Coming up this weekend and next week, we’re photographing a wedding vow renewal ceremony and reception tomorrow, followed by family portrait photography appointments in the studio on Sunday. Steve will be continuing his photography tour of Britain with bookings in Cumbria, Essex and Birmingham!

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

October 16th, 2012 by

Derby wedding photographers

 

 

If you’re planning a wedding, congratulations!

 

When you’re getting married, the ‘to-do’ list can sometimes seem overwhelming – finding the perfect wedding venue and choosing an amazing wedding dress are just the beginning. One big thing to tick off the list early in the planning stages is finding a wedding photographer that you feel comfortable with.

 

The Studio’s professional wedding photographers are based in Mickleover in Derby, but cover weddings in Derbyshire, the East Midlands and nationwide. We have two full-time photographers, but also call on the services of our small group of carefully selected, regular freelance professional photographers. All our photographers earn a living from photography, none is a keen amateur or part-time. You will always know who your wedding photographer will be and be able to meet them before your wedding day and see examples of their own work.

 

All of The Studio’s wedding photographers are fully trained and qualified as press photographers, which gives them the invaluable ability to adapt and cover an, at times, fast-moving and spontaneous situation – such as unexpected confetti-throwing! This experience means that we can really tell the story of your wedding day in pictures, covering every aspect in a documentary style.

 

Every wedding day is unique, and our photographers aim to reflect your own individual style in the images. When you book your wedding photography with us, we ask for a deposit of £120, which is one hour’s photography. You are more than welcome to get in touch as many times as you wish before the wedding day to talk through timings, planning and also pick our brains on fabulous Derbyshire wedding suppliers we have worked with previously.

 

Closer to the the big day, we will arrange an appointment with you to go through your final timings for the day and ask you to put together a list of essential group shots that you would like. This is when you pay your final balance.

 

On your wedding day itself, our photographers will be on time, dressed smartly and know how to get the best pictures without being a nuisance. We will melt into the background when necessary and step forward to organise groups in a polite and friendly manner, without barking orders, but still getting the official shots done quickly and efficiently.

 

Our wedding photography style is natural and relaxed, but also fun and tailored to you, so that your personality can really shine through in the images.

 

After your wedding, we will upload a preview of your pictures to our Facebook page followed by adding all of your individually edited pictures to a password-protected gallery on our website for you to share with your guests. You will also receive a disc containing your high-resolution images, with a copyright licence for personal use, so you can have them printed however you wish.

 

Couples tend to book their wedding photography quite early on in the wedding-planning process, so it’s always best to get in touch sooner rather than later – especially for popular weekends. However, there are sometimes a couple of late-availablility gaps in the diary as we are lucky enough to have more than one wedding photographer working for us. We are able to provide photography for weddings of all sizes, although we ask for a minimum booking of six hours for Saturdays from March to September.

 

You can find examples of our wedding photography in Derbyshire and beyond on our website galleries. Please feel free to get in touch with any questions and to check availability for your wedding date. And, above all, enjoy your special day!
