SYLVIA & ROGER / AMAZING WEDDING

No less than six hundred guests attended Sylvia and Roger’s wedding ceremony in the Ballroom of the Grand Hyatt. Not only did those six hundred guests arrive on time, but by the time they were seated and ready to greet the bridal party, the aisle – pristine, white, and lining the length of the ballroom – was still in immaculate condition.

Amazing.

It was clear that everybody at this wedding respected the occasion and loved the happy couple. Sylvia and Roger themselves are a couple with strong religious beliefs – beliefs that allow them to love not only their friends and family, but to spread that love to the rest of the world.

Amazing.

Joanne + Joseph + Brownie / Wedding

On the morning of Joanne and Joseph’s wedding, the weatherman announced a cool temperature of 12 degrees. The sun had yet to come up and when we arrived at the Grand Hyatt at 5.45am, the lobby area was empty. Despite the dark skies and the early, early start, the crew were eager to get the day started.

Credit to where credit’s due – the groom and his groomsmen were definitely in good spirits – not even plunging their feet into ice-cold water on such a cold day dampened them.

The ceremony was held at the Grand Hyatt’s Pool House. One of the highlights of the day was the entrance of Brownie, leading the way in a cute pageboy outfit. Another, rather unexpected highlight was the bouquet toss, when the lucky recipient caught the bouquet after it bounced off her head. It seems that there are some things in life that are just destined to be!

One challenge for this particular wedding was the editing of the day’s highlights. With two videographers, a very busy morning and only three hours to edit, it was a rush to get done – but I’m pleased to say that we made it with time to spare…

It was definitely a non-stop emotional rollercoaster ride of a day – for the bridal party and for the crew. It wasn’t until half past midnight, when the day drew to a close for us, that we started to feel the effects of such a long day… the newlyweds however, didn’t seem to be affected, continuing onto the after party. It seems happiness gives you boundless energy!

All the best to Joanne, Joseph and Brownie!

JOYCE & ROY / Light Fantastic!

I haven’t spent such a long time shooting in the studio for so long, it was a great experience to be able to spend some quality time doing some back-to-basics photography. With the willingness of expectant couple Roy and Joyce, I was given the freedom to experiment with some creative lighting – I’m very happy with the final pieces and wanted to share some of them with you.

SABINA & IGOR / Boston, New Hampshire autumn

In last year autumn, Susan took a short trip to Boston for a pre-wedding photo shoot.  Chosen especially for the stunning scenery of a New Hampshire autumn, including falling leaves and beautiful backdrops, this trip created lots of special memories and many fantastic photos.
