Lifestyle portrait session: Ide, Devon

Here are some images from a really lovely lifestyle portrait photography session I did in Ide, near Exeter recently.  I try and keep these sessions lots of fun for everyone involved so that the images captured remain as natural as possible.  We went for a stroll, played football, splashed around in the stream and explored the swings and treehouse in the children's garden - it was great fun!  I have been looking forward to sharing them for a couple of weeks - a selection of them in print have been due as a present for a family member, so I didn't want to risk spoiling the surprise.  But now they have been safely delivered, I am delighted to share them on here.  I hope that you like them!

Rachel & Callum: a little preview

We had amazing skies yesterday at Rachel and Callum's lovely wedding.  We also had jelly sweets, a vintage typewriter, the most beautiful blue and white flowers and The Best Men performing a speech fit for the stage!  For now here is a quick preview of those wonderful clouds, along with the very lovely bride and groom!

Newborn twins: a quick peep

In between all the many amazing weddings I have been enjoying recently, I had a little bit of baby joy as well - this morning I photographed twins!  The very lovely Bertie and Polly at nearly two weeks old.  So here is a very quick edit to create a very quick peep for you, one of my favourite images from the session:

A South Devon wedding on the River Dart: Kerry & Scott preview

The River Dart, a '40s & '50s themed wedding, the beautiful sunshine, the most amazing shoes... and a boat trip too!  Soooo much more too, but I'll save that for the full blog post at a later point.  For now, here is a sneaky preview of Kerry and Scott's wonderful wedding day yesterday:

Sarah & Jack: engaged

Here is a quick preview from an engagement shoot I did with Sarah and Jack near Totnes last weekend.  They will be celebrating their wedding in a beautiful field in August, with a fantastic yurt/pimms/ceilidh/hog-roast plan!  We explored the area together last Sunday, and waded through a whole lot of waterlogged field...  worth it for some lovely photos!  We now have fingers and toes all crossed that the rain stops falling and the field dries out properly in time for the big day!

Maunsel House wedding: Lisa & Nick in the rain

Just a quick preview from Saturday's amazing wedding at Maunsel House.  Devon had the most incredible amount of rain that day, but we couldn't have been in a better place - Maunsel House is just stunning with so many lovely indoor spaces, so everyone had a really wonderful day despite the wet weather.   Here are three of my favourite images of Lisa and Nick...

Claire, Neil & the space hopper: wedding preview

There was so much that I loved about yesterday's wedding at Dartington Hall.  It was incredibly relaxed with so much fun and laughter throughout.  We avoided all the showers to enjoy a lovely afternoon with a cream tea and garden games, plus a fantastic outdoor ceremony.  The first shower arrived just after the guests had all gone indoors for their meal.  Result!

There are so many lovely images, but these ones of Neil on the space hopper made me smile so much that I couldn't resist them for a quick preview!


Can't wait to edit the rest of the wedding! :)
