On one very cold Winters day I had the absolute pleasure of catching up with a family I have worked with a few times before, to meet their new edition Sunday. I meet Sarah + Al when photographing their first daughter Mabel when she was 6 months old. Since then I have meet a few other family members including Al’s sister, brother in law, nephews and now his Mum and Dad (all who live in the UK). I love catching up with this family because not only are their girls just adorable but the families home is styled like something from a magazine. Seriously Sarah could make a career out of it she has an amazing eye for detail! I enjoy working with families I have photographed before as a lot of the mystery of the photo session is gone. The family know me and know what to expect and I love hearing what they have been up to between shoots.

I love working with my friends. Its honestly one of the best things ever. I get to do I what I love with the people I love. I have known Jess + John since high school. They have always been such an easy going couple. Jess is one of those friends that even if you don’t see them for ages when you do finally catch up you can just pick up from where you left off. She’s easy to talk to and values her friends and family. John is hilarious. I admire those who can make others laugh because Im not one of them. Im not funny AT ALL (seriously, the only time I can get someone to laugh is when it is at me). John is entertaining and fun and with Jess by his side they make a pretty awesome pair. I can’t wait to shoot this couples wedding because if its anything like their engagement shoot it will be full of laughs, beautiful sunlight and gorgeous scenery. Bring it on!

Gorgeous shots, Sherise !

Sometimes people ask me and if I enjoy working at weddings of friends and family members. The answer is always yes… and why wouldn’t I? I love what I do and shooting a friend or family members wedding means I get to see the whole story. Im probably the only person that spends time with the bride and the groom before they tie the knot! This gorgeous DIY country/vintage inspired wedding was my cousin Keelys. Being her photographer meant that I got to really be apart of her special day and it is such an honour. Her now husband, Richard had such a fantastic vision and although I might not have been able to completely put it all together in the beginning on the day it made sense. These two are such a great match and the day was so enjoyable. They have a beautiful network of friends and because of the DIY element the families really came together to make it an unforgettable occasion.
