A family photo shoot in Nunney, Somerset

This family photoshoot took place in Nunney Castle in Somerset.
I had never done a photoshoot in Nunney before, in fact i’ve only really ever passed through Nunney on my way to somewhere else, but I was very pleased to be visiting Nunney and especially the castle.
The castle is really lovely.

School Photographs

In honour of my youngest child leaving primary school at the end of July (where has that time gone!) I’m going to offer up mini photos shoots on Sat 15th July.

Children's portraits photographed by Charlie a photographer in Somerset www.CharlottePhotography.co.uk.Mini shoots are a lot shorter than a full photoshoot which is why they are cheeper. You simply come to my studio on a particular day and at a particular time and the whole shoot takes between 10-20 minutes.
I then edit the photographs and send you a link to a password protected mini website where you can view all the photographs ready for you to choose your favourites (more…)

bride and groom getting married in Evercreech church

Becky & Gary

Becky and Gary are such a sweet couple and of course they had an incredibly pretty, hand made, crafty, clever and whimsical style of wedding. Becky and all her bridesmaids got ready in her immaculate house (my house is never that tidy) and she was so chilled that even when children turned up she kept her cool.
Becky and the wedding party were transported to the wedding in a beautiful vintage bus, which really fitted her theme.
The wedding was at the local church and photographs were taken outside the church because that’s where her parents had been married 20+ years ago.
The reception was in the local village hall and they’d decorated it beautifully, I loved the table decorations of yellow buttons which matched the bridesmaids dresses, I also loved the sweetie bar and visited that area often.Bride getting ready at home, wedding photography

bride and groom

Amy & Colin’s wedding in Devon

I do love photographing weddings, I love the fact that what I photograph is taken out of my hands and all I can do is document what unfolds in front of me.  I am simply a documentary photographer, trying to ensure that I am where the action is at all times (not always possible), trying to stay near the bride and groom whilst giving them room to breathe, and trying to capture all the little moments that happen, those interactions between people as they come together to celebrate an immensely important day in two peoples lives.

I also love the fact that you never know what is going to happen next, well obviously there’s a timeline that hopefully gets stuck to, but you just never know what the children will do next, or what will be said at the speaches, or what the drunk uncle or cousin will say next.

Weddings are fun.

Newborn photo shoot

This pretty little fella was around 3 weeks old when we did this shoot, he didn’t do masses of sleeping, but I did catch sneaky shots of him every time he had a brief nap.

The Curry Family in Batcombe.

The Curry family got in contact to update their family photographs because the last time i did a photo shoot for them was around three years ago, it was lovely to see them all again.
The last time i did it it was a gloriously sunny day and this time bizarrely even though it had been raining quite a bit, on the morning of the shoot it was so hot it was sweltering, but we managed just fine.
(other photographers will sympathise with me on the issues that arise from bright sunshine and midday sun)

This time the Curry family had the grandparents staying so they joined in as well and they were really good sports.

I love their house, they have this amazing decking / viewing platform which looks over the valley, it’s so gorgeous, though a little hot when the sun shines down.

Before & After

I know that lots of other photographers like to see before and after shots (i do) and i also know that lots of non photographers like to see that too, so here are a few before & after shots of my Christmas styled shots and my school styled shots.

A before and after of my Christmas shot of the girls.

Just before Christmas I took a shot of my girls sitting in our kitchen window because i wanted to create a “waiting for father Christmas” shot.
I took the shot at 2.30 in the afternoon (rather than at night) because I wanted the natural light to come through the window as if it was coming from the moon.
