Hasselblad & Broncolor Present ShootLDN
I have had many special moments in my photography life with awards, stunning weddings & amazing couples but to be asked by the most prestigious professional camera company in the world to be part of their 2 day flagship show has to be up there at the top. Now for those who are not photography minded here is a quick explanation of what ShootLDN is all about…… Hasselblad make the ultimate in Professional Cameras & Broncolor make the best flash lights (thats the easy bit) ShootLDN (really its Shoot London)is a concept that brings the top of the Professional Photography Trade with high end professional Photographers under one roof offering them the chance to get hands on equipment, meet other suppliers like Epson Printers, Adobe Photo Software,Eizo Monitors,Aston Martin Racing for example attend workshops & seminars by leading figures in the industry in the guise of Fashion Magazines, Model Agencies, Agents & also demonstrations of photography techniques and much much more.The event was held for the second year at the uber cool Old Trueman Brewery building in Shoreditch London, the Old Trueman Brewery has an amazing feel and draws in fashionable creative people from all parts of the city, a perfect venue for ShootLDN.
The show had photography Studios set up for Fashion shoots, commercial & product shoots with models (supplied by Lenis Models) available to shoot with the Hasselblad Cameras (to a chocolate lover its the same as being put in a room filled to the brim with chocolate and being told… help yourself, YES that good!!!)
I was asked to hold 2 Wedding Masterclasses, the first being all about our business,our photography style & how we design & shoot our wedding albums the second all about how we create our signature images & how to position/pose the couple for the best results.I was humbled that both Masterclasses were full as ShootLDN even though aimed at ALL Professional Photographers its mainly the Fashion & Commercial world that attends en mass so to see so many at my Masterclasses made me proud to be representing Wedding Photography.
At the end of day one as the sun set over the City (London never sleeps) we had an amazing evening in London ready for day 2. This was the view from our room (sorry for the touristy holiday style snap but I love the London skyline)
Day 2- all about posing the Bride & Groom. A huge thanks to the stunning Grace from Leni’s models for being the perfect bride…..
And to Jon from Karl Taylor Photography for being a great sport and stepping is as the Groom, much to the entertainment of Karl and the rest of his team. Talking of Karl Taylor Photography…. Karl is in my eyes the best photography educator there is bar none, if your serious about taking your photography to the highest level then check out his website www.karltaylorphotography.com
And not forgetting Chris Burfoot from Broncolor (who support us with our location & studio flash equipment) being a great sport as my plus sized model, much to the entertainment of the audience. Cheers Chris
And as always finishing by showing our range of wedding albums and other presentation products from the brilliant Graphistudio (Graphistudio supply ALL our Wedding Albums because they are the BEST!!!!!)
A huge thanks has to go to Mark Witney, UK Marketing Manager for Hasselblad who organised the whole show so high5 to him for another amazing ShootLDN, to All my Hasselblad & Broncolor friends (for their friendship & support with cameras & lights) to Graphistudio for as always backing me up and to all my Photo trade friends who also attended and made this the best ShootLDN yet!!!! but most of all to the people who took the time to attend my Masterclasses and for the wonderful comments & friendship that they showed to me, I really was humbled.

Rivington Hall Barn Wedding Photographers – Dan & Megan’s Wedding
Megan & Dan are an amazing couple as we have found out over the year & a half we have known them since they booked us as their Rivington Hall Barn Wedding Photographers and to say their wedding was brilliant is an understatement. The day started at Megans with her family & crazy Bridesmaids with a very nervous Dan arriving with the lads at the stunning St John’s church to meet the guests, I love this church its just beautiful inside. Megan looked gorgeous in her Enzoani wedding dress as her very proud Father walked her down the aisle. The reception was held at Rivington Hall Barn surrounded by the beautiful Lancashire countryside. Rivington Hall Barn is becoming our second home and we LOVE the place…. the staff are amazing . What better way is there spend a wedding day than drinks on the lawns, shooting gorgeous images in the scenic surroundings all topped of with great speeches and a fabulous evening of dancing,laughing & just enjoying this gorgeous couple amazing wedding. Megan & Dan were a joy to photograph and after we had the Pre Wedding Shoot earlier in the year we had been sooooo looking forward to their wedding…. and it didn’t disappoint. What an epic day!!!!!

Holker Hall Wedding Photography – Claire & Steven’s Wedding
You just have to love the Lake District its simply a perfect place to marry, with its stunning views & stately homes and there is no more a stunning Lake District wedding venue than Holker Hall. Set in its simply gorgeous gardens we are so glad that Claire & Steven chose us as their Holker Hall Wedding Photographers, it is perfect for our style of wedding photography and we LOVE the place. Claire & Steven are from Paisley in Scotland but fell in love with Holker Hall on one of their visits & it was always Claire’s dream to have an outdoor wedding and on the day the weather played its part, it was perfect as was their wedding. The day started at a local hotel with Claire and her bridesmaids on one side of the hotel & Steven & his mates on the other and as we arrived at Holker Hall their amazing staff were busy with the finishing touches. Claire & Steven opted for a humanist ceremony, I just love humanist ceremonies they are such a personal way to marry and with tears and laughter we cheered the new Mr & Mrs Jamieson. Holker Hall has the most stunning gardens and they are HUGE we could have spent hours and still only used a small part but during the previous Pre Wedding Shoot we had chosen the photo locations and Claire & Steven are so easy to photograph we had great time creating some beautiful images. A great meal (including the famous Cartmel Sticky Toffee pudding) and great speeches introduced an brilliant evening of dancing and just having a great Scottish shindig. We loved every minute of Claire & Stevens wedding and as we drove home we kept laughing and chatting about how this day was so special.
A huge thanks to Claire & Steven for allowing us to be part of their fab Holker Hall wedding. If youre looking for an experienced Holker Hall wedding photographer then please get in touch, this is a stunning Lake District wedding venue and we can’t wait to shoot another wedding here. D&J xx
