THE WEDDING OF GEM AND JAMIE

On the 26th September 2015 l got to photograph such an amazing day. After chatting about ideas for the wedding, l knew it was going to be wonderful. They got married in Llandudno at the registry office and the reception in the beautiful town of llanfairfechan. The weather was beautiful and lovely company through out the day.

Words from Gem and Jamie ~

We were very happy with the pictures we had done with your lovely edits and positions you got everyone in around the split willow to take lovely photos. The price was reasonable and you were lovely to have around. You made us feel very comfortable and we loved your suggestions to new photos. Your style is lovely and I’m happy how helpful you were to assist us when I needed a photographer. I would recommend you definitely.

Iona and Amys words. ~

Prior to our engagement shoot with Abigail we were really nervous about the whole experience. Usually when we first meet someone, we are both very reserved, however Abigail was very friendly and welcoming. Unlike other photographers who are very confrontational and have that very in your face approach, Abigail looks for the naturalistic and genuine pictures.1

 She has the ability to find and capture the sincerest of memories and moments, because of this we instantly felt relaxed, like the camera wasn’t even there. The way Abigail professionally executed the photo shoot, we new that she would be the ideal person to capture our wedding.2On the 15th October 2014 we were able to capture the best memories of our big day, with our friends and family, all thanks to Abigail and her warm and welcoming approach. She managed to convince even the shyest of guests to smile for a photo. We will definitely be using Abigail in the future to capture even more memories.3Thank you Amy and Iona for your lovely kind words. It was so wonderful working with you both for your enagagement shoot as well as capturing your most special day together.

I wish you both every happiness together 🙂 x

 

 

THE REASONS TO WHY WE SHOOT IN RAW

THEPOWEROFRAW

This evenings post is all to do with why we photographers shoot in raw and the benfits to why.

RAW is a file format that captures all image data recorded by the sensor when you take a photo. When shooting in JPEG, information is compressed and lost. Because no information is compressed with RAW, you’re able to produce higher quality images, as well as correct problem images that would be unrecoverable if shot in the JPEG format. When shooting in RAW you get the Highest Level of Quality.

As a photographer we shoot in RAW because a RAW file needs to be processed, it has to be edited because we like to have complete control over our camera, we dont want the camera taking over us. So we have full control when we process our images. DSC_0004And thats what l love about being a photographer we create our own style by editing our work to our own liking, and shooting in RAW is the best way of getting those high quality images. All photographers should know that by shooting in RAW there is editing that needs to be done even if its just a basic edit anything else is to do with the style of work. I have came into contact with photographers that don’t want to do any editing, they want there camera to do everything for them, unfortunately you can’t just give a client a raw file you have to do something with that raw file by editing it.  But what you need to know also is that a raw file won’t usually have included the in-camera sharpening that jpeg provides, this also needs to be done in the editing process.

My style is soft, dreamy, vintage, film and rich with colour and thats how l like to edit my work, l do keep my work looking as natural as possible. I like to make sure that everything in camera is set correctly before l bring my work to photoshop. So all l am doing is making my work better and pretty much letting my work speak for itself. Thats what l aim to acheve.IMG_9985So Basically if you’re shooting in jpeg and you hit the shutter to let all the beautiful light into your sensor and record the image onto your memory card, the camera collects the information and quickly compresses it down into a reasonably sized file. But if you shoot in raw, your camera is pretty much saying, YOU deal with it! this means that you have total, blissful control over your entire image. 🙂

IONA AND AMY

I am really excited to share my first ever Engagement session working with such a lovely couple. 😀

 I met up with the lovely Iona and Amy on a beautiful sunny day at a fab location. It was such a beautiful day and very warm indeed. It was such a great opportunity to get some really great photos within this fab woodland.

Here is the full Engagement session. 😀

 

Iona and Amys Words:

Before we came to the photo shoot, we were a bit nervous because we didn’t know what to expect. As soon as we met you we felt comfortable enough to relax and be ourselves.
