For the past few weeks l have been working hard with a few models on this animal themed project. I love working with models who understand my creative and unique style.
I decided on the animal theme because its something l have never done before and being a photographer and artist l love to always try exciting new projects, l like to get stuck in and get creative.
When it comes to my work, l do like to stick to what l do best and what l am able to do. I am mainly talking about the lighting here. I tend to stick with the use of lighting that I feel comfortable with as that’s where it lands me with great results, as that’s where l can focus and capture and get the shots. I have it planned out in my head how l like things to be, in terms of where l would like my models to be, how to stand and pose, maybe how l interact and the lighting too. From there l just let things happen naturally, and capture what l need to capture.
Before the shoot l like to talk with my models as much as possible before hand to make sure we have props, clothes and how things are going to plan out. I am a very organised person haha.
Colour plays a huge part in my creative process, l like rich colourful images but keeping it as natural as possible, because natural to me it the natural beauty l like to capture. Personally for me my images are created rather than being captured.
After having one really lovely engagement session with Amy and Iona and chatting about ideas for there wedding, I knew it was going to be even more AMAZING! The day of the wedding finally arrived. A really nice simple venu. I enjoyed exploring this small venu. Really lovely. A really lovely autumn wedding, and nice and simple. They were married in The Gainsborough House Hotel in kidderminster. So many beautiful personalised touches to the whole day really made it so beautiful. And l loved the theme to which was so unique.
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.
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.On 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.Thank 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
