Ewelina & Tomek outdoor wedding photoshoot

The formula for a good outdoor wedding photography is quite simply. You need to know the craft, understand the lighting, choose a good location and obviously have a lovely, willing (to sacrifice:)) couple.
Recently Tom and I had a great time photographing Ewelina and Tomek’s wedding day. They got married in the Polish Church of Devine Mercy in Manchester. We have chosen the lovely Prestwich Clough and Drinkwater Park in Prestwich for the outdoor photo session. I’m familiar with this location as this is my favourite spot for a walk. It’s amazing what weather can bring into the mix when comes to photography. We had a sunshine bursting through the leaves, heavy clouds, rain, autumn colours started to appear and finally more rain and sunshine again.
Ewelina and Tomek were great, funny and cooperative. We kept going and had a great time despite changing weather conditions. Wishing you all the happiness and have a wonderful life ahead.

Sommelier of the Year

Recently we had an opportunity to cover Sommelier of the Year, a regional heat event in Manchester. It was the first occasion of its kind that I personally had a chance to work on as a photographer.
The purpose of this event was to find a knowledgeable wine professional who specialized in all aspects of wine service as well as wine and food pairing. Our client was the caterer from London who requested that we provide photographic coverage in a location already familiar to me, the Malmaison Hotel in Manchester.
The main sponsor of the event was Moet & Chandon Champagne. From a shortlist of ten participants, three Sommeliers of the Wine stewards had reached the final round. I personally enjoyed the final test, the infamous perfect Champagne pour, in which Moet & Chandon Champagne is poured equally into eight glasses, without returning to any of them.

It was an interesting event to be able to look at through the lens of the camera. Besides the photography aspect, I've also learned one or two things about wine etiquette.

Valentines Couples

We've been invited to Malmaison hotel Manchester to shoot arriving couples for valentines dinner. Setup was pretty straight forward. Two speedlights as main lights plus two side lights with colour gels to add little creative touch. During the night we even witnessed unsuspected proposal of one of the guesses! Best wishes for young couple.

Here are few images.


Karolina & Steven Wedding day

It was one of the smallest but also very spontaneous weddings we had chance been part of. Karolina and Seven got married in Town Hall registrars office. Shortly after the ceremony, we had (only) 30 min for wedding session around library and Town Hall area. Beautiful architecture help us to capture some moments between newly married and full of love couple. After a short walk, we all headed off for dinner followed by a party in one of the local pubs.
