I managed to get out last week and shot a short cinematic film of Broadstairs during the beautiful snowfall. Try and watch in HD and with the sound up on headphones if possible to get the best experience. All shot on a GoPro :) thanks, James Davies Wedding Photography
After envisaging this photo for a couple of years now, all the correct weather conditions and astronomical positions came together on Friday night for me to capture this shot. Taken at Joss Bay in Broadstairs around 130am with the Milky Way arcing over the town with an UWA lens and using a gridded beauty dish to (thinly) light up the couple.

I had a great time photographing a stunning wedding in Sandwich, Kent on Saturday. The streets were paved with golden leaves and the tudor buildings made the photos look like something out of an old English medieval film. Below is a teaser images of Vicky & Chris during their portrait wedding photography shoot late in the afternoon. Stay tuned over the next week to see my write up and selection of my favourite images from the day.

Shooting out on location...New York style.
Hi - It's been a while :) I've been out in New York City shooting street life in the wonderful Big Apple. I had a couple of free weekends from weddings over here in Kent so decided I needed a bit of inspirational change so made my way over to the constantly vibrant midtown area of Manhattan. Being in NYC its impossible to sit still and chill, the immersive energy levels just overcome you and from the minute you get off the train into Manhattan you just have to be amongst it. I spent the 2 weeks I was there capturing life on the streets in Greenwich Village, Soho, Noho, China Town, Queens, Hell's Kitchen, Dumbo, Williamsburg and other parts of Brooklyn...the streets had so much character and tons of stuff going on...Basketball Streetball matches, Jazz bands, street graffiti, breakdancers on subway trains to name just a few. I would love to shoot a wedding portrait session out on the Brooklyn streets one day, so many cool backdrops and props :) The photo I have added above is one of my favourites from the trip...a panoramic viewpoint from the top of the Rockerfeller Centre overlooking Manhattan shot during an unusually hot spring evening. The best part for me was hearing the feint sounds of the taxi horns and traffic down below which gave it an unusually surreal and calm feel.
I'm now back in Broadstairs planning for my Spring weddings in Whitstable, Canterbury, Broadstairs and Margate but if you are looking at getting married abroad this year or in 2017 i'd love to hear from you...shooting on location is the ultimate buzz as a photographer :)

I loved being part of London Fashion Week again this year, such a buzz when the catwalks are in full swing and the music’s pumping. Definetly something i’m going to be applying for more in the next couple of years and the wedding photography skills certainly came into play ;) Here’s some of my favourite shots I took (Canon 5DS + Canon 70-200mm 2.8 is)

That eagerly anticipated moment, a minute before the bride-to-be enters the church, where everyone falls quiet and the groom stands nervously next to his best man. Max’s face tells the story perfectly in this picture as he awaits Natalie’s walk down the aisle with her father at the Church of San Vicente in Ibiza. As a photographer this is one of the most challenging parts of the day as I need to be in position at the back of the church to catch this moment before rapidly changing my camera settings to photograph the bride as she makes her walk up the aisle before running to the other end of the church so I am out of the vicars ways to start the ceremony.
In my next blog post “The First Look” I will be posting the moment that Natalie and Max meet at the alter :)

Early January for me as a wedding photographer has always been about planning for the years upcoming weddings, developing and fine tuning new photography skills and styles, meeting with wedding suppliers and also couples to discuss plans. Yesterday I had the opportunity to meet up with Chas Appeti from theperfectdaywedding.co.uk to talk about our 2016 plans for weddings and a few other projects. Chas is a cinematic wedding videographer and has shot over 25 x weddings in the last couple of years over the UK. It was interesting for me, as the wedding photographer, to get an insight into how a wedding videographer goes about their work on the day. We found some time at the end of the day to test out some new lenses and also shoot a few portraits in my studio. This is one of my favourite captures...I like how the light falls off around Chas’ face structure and also leaves a feint out line of his upper body.
