bride coming down the steps in midnight blue night colours   It would be nice to use ready made templates and just drag and drop images into a predetermined format, but the artist in me rebels against that, preferring to see each image from each wedding as a one-off creation. I’ve recently been working to 3 , 4 and even 5am on a redesign of one wedding, using contemporary design ideas and colours.  Yes, I LOVE colour, but even black and white with a hint of colour when placed in the right context FEELS like colour too…

Have a look at these and see what you think…

 This way, the formal groups can be integrated into a more creative layout which makes viewing more interesting for unrelated friends when invited to see the wedding album! I can’t wait till Graphi Studio send the finished bound book.  Such a pity they can’t actually print this till after Christmas, as we’d all hoped they could get it done in time…

Time to kiss as the marriage ceremony is completed

Winter wedding at Chevin Lodge Hotel in Otley, West Yorkshire

Sunday, November 18th, 2007

black and white photo with tinted background of bridesmaid having her hair done wedding bouquet on bed in bridal suite at Chevin Lodge Hotel in Otley bridal bed with wedding shoes and veil at Chevin Lodge bridesmaids getting ready for winter wedding at Chevin Lodge Hotel Its Donna & Robert’s first wedding anniversary today 17 November, so had really wanted to have their wedding album complete with photos as a nice surprise (they only ordered them recently as have both had immense sadnesses in their lives since the wedding), but missed my self-imposed deadline by a few hours.  Anyway,  have just finished working on their wed pics, the jpgs are burnt to the DVD for printing and on their way to the lab in Bradford tonight, courtesy of my husband, Jorge.

outdoor winter wedding photo with video light


Its amazing what you can do even in the pitch dark!  We switched on the video light to add and extra dimension to these traditional family wedding photos out doors after the sun had set on a cold November’s evening. The bride and bridesmaid must have been perished but they were up for anything to get good pictures for their wedding album.

A handheld low-light indoor photo on the spiral staircase inside Chevin Lodge Hotel in Otley, a labour of love in  Photoshop, and some extra processing with another piece of editing software, and this duplex monochrome image emerges shining from the dark.
