Engagement shoot Hampshire pre wedding portraits by Steve Chatterton photography https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/4/engagement-shoot-hampshire-pre-wedding-portraits-by-steve-chatterton-photography Having been stuck behind a virtual world this past year it was so refreshing to get out and spread my wings again with clients.

This gorgeous pair were lovely shy and not sure what to expect. Who likes having their picture taken I guess most of us really when truth be told.

So thats part of my job to break that belief and communicate while taking these images for them to feel comfortable and natural in front of the camera.

 

This was a beautiful little spot at Long Parish Hampshire next to the river Test which was so tranquil to capture their intimacy.

Groom speech a few tips by Basingstoke wedding photographer Hampshire https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/3/groom-speech-a-few-tips-by-basingstoke-wedding-photographer-hampshire  

Grooms speech 

How long should the speech be? Well  I would say no more than 10mins less is more. 

If your not a good speaker use props and slideshow if possible to help keep the attention and will give punch lines more clout.

Use bullet points rather than complete script it will come from the heart better.

If your nervous don’t drink to much beforehand you get one chance with this your guests will just talk about how tipsy you were rather than the content of the speech .

A good thing to do is have the speeches before the meal that way you can all relax properly but it is  entirely up to you.

Grooms speech can go after the Farther of the bride where possible.

I have seen a false tattoo on a grooms arm with yes dear written on it that was his grandads tip for a happy marriage 

Topics to talk about

Toasting thanks to Farther of the bride for there speech and first round on them lol

Thank the guests for coming

parents each side his for doing a wonderful job ha ha

Best man before he gives his speech..make joke if you want….

Helpers Bridal party  

Hand mothers flowers….Thanking them always good to get off to a good side

Finally his partner how beautiful she is….

 

Content of speech

Think about qualities your partner has….

How you adjusted to life together…How much better you are with her…

How you first new each other.

Funny moments together holidays friends together.

Talk about the future together plans….

Practising your speech is good so it flows better especially with banter from guests you may get.. Stay on track again with bullet points slow down pause where needed. 

Sip water.

And just have fun with it don’t over think it good luck.

 

It would be great with your feedback or ideas you have had of your own in the comments I would love to hear from you....

We were so taken by the sample photos on Steve's website that we had to arrange to meet him. Steve really took the time to understand what it was that we liked about his photos and even did a few demo shots before the big day. On the day, Steve made us feel at ease and seamlessly captured the shots that we wanted. The day wouldn’t have been the same without him and needles to say we are delighted with the photos.

wedding promotion for Valentines engagements by Basingstoke photographer https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/2/wedding-promotion-for-valentines-engagements-by-basingstoke-photographer Hi hope you had a lovely lockdown Valentines day.

I spent it with my wife chilling for the day watching movies and such.

Was it any different to any other day at the moment was the romance still there? Yes I believe so, I am not naturally a romantic type my wife would vouch for that!

So Valentines day is what you make of it and giving a little recognition to one another can be enough sometimes but we are all different.

If your new to all this romance stuff it can be quite exciting especially if you are thinking of proposing.

So if the answer was a resounding yes then say hi and tell me about it for a new blog I want to do....

In turn all you have to do is say hi to hold onto the promotion even if you don't book a wedding photographer this week.

Still looking for dates, venues and such no worries I can help advise like a wedding planner might do.

Happy futures

Giving back by Steve Chatterton Basingstoke Hampshire photographer https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/2/giving-back-by-steve-chatterton-basingstoke-hampshire-photographer Well during this different times as a Basingstoke wedding photographer
we find ourselves in it is always nice to get a email asking for ones time to help out.

I received this email the beginning of the year asking about judging some school photos from Andover Hampshire.

With social distance being the case we decided I would judge on line.

This is something I have done for a few years now and am proud to view the younger generations on how they see the world.

It took me back to when I first started out with a film camera in those days rather than digital.

The tools we use are not the excuse only that I could not take that many photos compared to now with expense of film. I would say it is more to do with ones eye on the world how you perceive it and looking at the images not that much has changed or has it?

The students images were of a high standard and would stand on there own in our own camera club. 

I was privileged to look through these images I felt the standard was higher than previous years with consistency. 

I think some of this has to do with time students having had  time from school  being different.

The thought processes seemed in tune with their surroundings out doors with composition  being one of the factors and lighting considered.

This to me showed a factor of care in what they were doing and their environment so well done to them all.

All the students had carefully chosen three images in a set for me to look at.

They did so well with how they themed them together creating stories for us.

 

Lets hope this continues forward and best of luck to all of the winners going through to compete against other schools.

Steve

wedding photography in Basingstoke tips, and heart to heart in Hampshire https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/1/wedding-photography-in-basingstoke Giving my 110% as a Basingstoke Hampshire wedding photographer
to this industry as always been the upmost importance to oversee that wedding clients go away from me very happy with what I have captured for them on their wedding day around Hampshire.

This job is more than turning up on the day of your wedding it is about connection and passion that unfolds before me, to seek those images that tell your day.

If this was not possible then I would not be doing this and I would get a regular job that I could just clock in and out of.

So if the moment that feeling of want disappears then well you would not know as I wouldn't be doing weddings by then.

The energy they take is immense to. So you are thinking its easy think again please. Not that I don't want new people to take it up but just to make sure its the right job for you as there is great responsibility.

I would as a tip for newly engaged couples to find a photographer who you feel at ease with.

Myself being the chilled type of person that doesn't panic at weddings. The flow of the day is very important not to disrupt from my point of view . It is fantastic to watch and capture those little moments that can unfold before you. Every personality is different so images should say who they are too.

Headshot portraits Branding by Hampshire photographer Basingstoke https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/11/headshot-portraits-by-hampshire-photographer-basingstoke  

When you run your own business as a  Hampshire portrait photographer
and spend on your promotions its important to look professional for prospective clients.

So giving the right look that portrays what you are from the heart is important.

We all go by first impressions.

Think of the times you go by a picture in a menu in a restaurant. We can't help it but we are drawn to these things with our eyes. When you look at websites you are drawn by images that look inviting, this is the first point of call decisions are made from....

Its good to have someone else's  perspective to lift and grow your look for clients in the first instance.

Having that unique look to your own branding is important it enhances your perspective outlook and draws more people to look further into say your website.

One of things I like to do is to talk to yourselves first about what you do and the type of image you want to portray to your prospective clients. So we go through your business and the direction targets your aiming for and build from there.

Having fresh style images of your company can really lift your business so I have prices for these too to give comprehensive coverage.

What do you think prospective clients will look at when they first see a bad image of yourself? You want to come across as a professional from the first impression.

Creating new images with Photoshop by Steve Chatterton in Hampshire https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/11/creating-new-images-with-photoshop-by-steve-chatterton-in-hampshire Hello it has been different this year with more time to decorate so at least thats mostly done now.

 

While in Lockdown It gave me time to Study photo shop a little bit more with some of the creative stuff that I have been doing.

You can never tell what you can  come up with from Studying photoshop a little bit more with some of the creative stuff that I have been doing. 

I never have a briefing in mind  to start with and it's just something that actually inspired me at the time to put an image together. So sometimes it can be the background first other times it can be the foreground with animals, plants, cars anything mechanical even humans.

 

 I like dramatic skies too a lot as the background . I do have a library which I've been collecting and that is something that you can do as well and collect some different types of clouds skylines from grey to a raging massive sunset or sunrise .

This below has a  Armageddon storyline style that I created.

Well I felt it had some feeling of destruction and waste behind it.

You have to find what motivates you as there is so much you can  create.

It's up to you.

Growing my photography business keep learning and refining in Basingstoke Hampshire https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/10/growing-my-photography-business-keep-learning-and-refining-in-basingstoke-hampshire Well we are really into this lockdown as such throughout country at different stages.

So pondering over life as you do I felt you can stay still or you can move forward. 

 

So rather than stagnate I FELT THIS WAY BELOW......

Regarding my business as a wedding photographer like many we have moved clients to next year in 2022.
 

So the spare time that we  have I  have used constructively and in a positive manner to move my business forward. One of the primary things that I have done is to take some mentoring from some of the top photographers in the industry..

So what this does is actually re-evaluate some of the work I am doing with my clients improvements from the ground up..

As a creative we always look for these values from my peers which I highly recommend if you want to move forward in your craft whatever it be..

This really keeps the buzz going and regenarates vigour ready for my return to weddings.

What I have taken on during some of the free days  from the boss giving me lots of things to do and from DIY which I profess not to be the best at really..Though I do enjoy it with a faint smile.....

All my portrait lights I've been working on and refining some of the techniques used that I did possess but have forgotten from the past and being comfortable when setting up for clients. Thats always a pro thing to do I guess and going back to basics making sure I understand what i am doing as a process.

 

There is always room for improvement if it's little tweaks even down to some of the gear that we use and get the best out of ..

What are you doing as a reader of this blog.. You don't have to be a photographer you could someone in your own business I'd love to hear from you what have you been doing during this lockdown period or different tiers of lockdown whatever you wanna call it. Yeah just put a message on below or a PM me it would be great to hear from you and get some dialogue going and your ideas and that is great just to bounce ideas off of one hour thank you.

That way I can feature you in future blogs and get some links to your website is the way you run your business is whatever you wanna talk about connecting is reflecting as I call it now so thank you very much and look forward to hearing from you.

Hampshire based as a photographer means I m not far from the countryside with may lovely and varied locations to capture clients at some really gorgeous venues like The Elvetham or Oakley Hall.

Remembering that being a creative is always self objective and for criticism and learning to take this on the chin is a good thing and will make you grow exponentially..

Covid wedding nice to capture in strange times says Basingstoke Hampshire photographer https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/9/covid-wedding-nice-to-capture-in-strange-times-says-basingstoke-hampshire-photographer I was so grateful to do my job one over the weekend after many cancellations rescheduled to next year.

This gorgeous wedding was split in two with the ceremony being this year and the party whatever you want to call it next year which I am really looking forward to.

Hampshire based as I am, it was a bright Autumn day so that was a bonus for family to witness their beautiful intimate wedding.

Masks and visors were worn by the congregation in the church of St Marys in Basingstoke while people had the option in their bubbles outside.

They did not hinder the smiles in the church ceremony which was nice as I could see the expresions still.

It felt like a warm relief for some normality to return and forget all that is going on in our day to day lives at the moment.

It was charming to say the least everyone enjoyed themselves including me.

What's important to us Brides by Hampshire photographer steve Chatterton SJC photography https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/9/brides-brides-brides-by-hampshire-photographer-steve-chatterton-sjc-photography During this year 2020 its all been bit of a blur for me as a wedding photographer in Hampshire.

Anyone saying it has been fun well we know what the answer would be to that.....

Wedding business and everything tied to it has been in melt down but with so many positive people in the business attitude has really helped.

What else could any of us do I felt really sorry for Brides who have planned this momentous wedding occasion only to have them dashed say for most next year..

Some of the things we forget and think its easy to do it is not just the date. To be honest it can be the loved ones that might not be there as older generations move to the end of their time its true though and no denying it either. I have had weddings moved forward just so loved ones could be at the wedding through terminal illness. It is bringing family and friends together for these one off events that is so important. 

My conclusion though this year is what has made us remember what is important to us with such a fast paced society.

Loved ones that we don't always see and close friends not all the material things.....

Photography near me Basingstoke Hampshire with stunning images to enrich your memories.

People who want quality professional images with a friendly down to earth approach only need apply Lol...x
 

 

So tip to brides be happy first for you and your loved ones its not about impressing anyone be happy in yourself.

 

And finally live for today!!!!

Happy wedding and good Luck!!!!

Have friggin fun with portrait lifestyle shoots by Steve portrait & wedding photographer https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/9/have-friggin-fun-with-portrait-lifestyle-shoots-by-steve-portrait-wedding-photographer Having friggin fun when I take photos for clients is a great way to relax people.

 

All the time I get clients saying how they don't like their picture taken... Does it bare how insecure we are no I don't think so we look at ourselves differently to how others perceive us. True there are introverts and extraverts to the extreme but we all line in there somewhere, some in the middle and some to the extremes.

 

Taking portraits for you I create fun in a calm atmosphere that is compelling even stupid to some people maybe!!! By engaging in a friendly manor we create a repour that breaks those barriers and relaxes you to feel its just another photo snap from the phone but of coarse the results will be much more through my eye and edited to shine and relive the experience in a jolly friggin awesome way.

Registry office wedding at Basingstoke by Chatterton photography during 2020 covid https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/8/registry-office-wedding-at-basingstoke-by-chatterton-photography-during-2020-covid During such a unprecedented time I felt for all the weddings that have been cancelled, not only for me but for all the industries that surround it and link in a big chain that has been sunk for sometime. 

Just my thoughts from Steve Chatterton wedding photographer Basingstoke Hants.
 

I was happy to be expressing my photography in a job that I undertake and enrich the memories for my clients over time.

 

People have different views on this situation that we find ourselves in. One thing on top of my list has been loved ones closest to me and I am sure it has made people see what really matters in life.

I was really happy to capture the few hours of my Bride and Groom's big day. It happened to be the hottest day of the year so far with the temp over 30 degrees.

The Basingstoke Registry Office is and will always be a pleasant place for Bride and Grooms to marry in with such charm and warmth about it.

We took a few images outside which turned a little cloudy when the ceremony was over. Though everyone seemed happy to have it a little cooler at that point.

So no pandemic was going to stop the smiles from happening today and look forward to creating a fantastic handmade wedding album for them too.

Expectations for the bride by Steve Chatterton wedding photographer Hampshire https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/7/expectations-for-the-bride-by-steve-chatterton-wedding-photographer-hampshire For Brides from Steve Chatterton wedding photographer Basingstoke Hants.

Hope this helps a little 

 

When you look through magazines on a break at work or in the comfort of your own home dreaming about the fantastic day you are going to have, be mindful of the images that can be created for you that you see as an idea from the magazine. 

 

You look thinking yes I love that idea and show your photographer. 

What happens with bridal preparations the expectations can fall short if you only have a kitchen to change in compared to a grand suite  in a Hotel with lovely window light to complement the images you saw in the magazine. So being mindful of what you have as rooms compared to what you would like image wise has to be managed.

 

Talking through these ideas with myself can help in understanding where you're heading with the images we can create for you to get the best possible outcome. As there maybe ways to create something nice without the grande Hotel that might not be in your budget.

 

Mostly though its down to feeling comfortable in your surroundings you choose then the magic happens from that point onwards!

 

Thanks Steve

Basingstoke registry office was a really sunny day by Hampshire wedding photographer https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/7/basingstoke-registry-office-was-a-really-sunny-day-by-hampshire-wedding-photographer  

From Chatterton wedding photographer Basingstoke Hants
 

It doesn't matter what age you are when you're getting married love is cliche is something that I really find intriguing between the couples.

Having fun no matter what your age is something that can happen when you're in love and capturing their energy for them is a great feeling.

This was the Basingstoke registry office at the Memorial Park and was a really sunny day . We were just walking over to take a few pictures of this lovely couple I had the pleasure of capturing images of them.

They were very bubbly and down to earth people and we are surrounded by close family and friends which really make this an intimate day.

This unprecedented time it has been hard as a wedding photographer to keep motivated but one of the things that I do to overcome this is look back over the images that have made me feel alive and why I do this.

So stay positive as much as possible and as we break out into some sort of normality I've still been taking bookings for weddings as well as some new genres, such as headshot branding for companies.

Quality service in photography business for wedding and portraits with fun element https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/6/quality-service-in-photography-business-for-wedding-and-portraits-with-fun-element  

From Chatterton wedding photographer Basingstoke Hants just a thought!
 

Quality is priority:

I came across this really relevant quote by John Ruskin from the 19th century.

I couldn't put it better myself but I felt it was really relevant in the business I am running and that quality really does list above what you pay.

Have a little read see what you think this may not be relevant to certain clients but the discerning clients the idea to seems to have this philosophy in what they look for.

“It is unwise to pay too much, but it is unwise to pay too little. When you pay too much you lose a little money and that is all, but when you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing that you’ve bought isn’t capable of doing the thing it was bought to do.

The common law of business prohibits you from paying a little and receiving a lot – it can’t be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder it would be as well to add something for the risk you run, and if you can do that you can afford to buy something better”.

“There is hardly anything in the world today that some man cannot make just a little worse and sell just a little cheaper, and the people who buy on price alone are this man’s lawful prey”.

John Ruskin, 1819 – 1900

Nice polite non obtrusive photographer at your wedding in Hampshire https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/6/the-bigger-price-to-pay-is-not-having-the-right-photographer-at-your-wedding While I was sitting sipping a coffee relaxing on Sunday afternoon after a busy wedding the day before.

Just a thought from Chatterton wedding photographer Basingstoke Hants

I often reflect on how it went normally thinking how glad I don't book two weddings in a row well for me anyway I just couldn't give 110% if I had one the day after as they are long days when you give everything emotionally to the clients on their big day.

I have been fortunate on the last three weddings to have had great feedback, oh yes this has been on the day of their weddings more or less these are their kind words. 

"Steve we are so glad we picked you."

Now scratch of the head as they have not fully seen the images only some from the back of the camera so what was it?

"Well the way you conducted yourself round the family and friends fitting in with the flow, non bossy ,taking over, always thinking of others, helping with ties, button holes, refreshments,"just some of the things mentioned to me.

Whats this got to do with images? Well for me it is making everyone feel comfortable around me now thats not me entertaining singing,dancing telling jokes by the way its being able to mingle with all age groups then capturing when everyone feels more comfortable around me and not being conscious that I am there.

Having success with wedding couple clients where they are happy go lucky, some very professional clients that want to have natural as well as some nice connecting fun portraits that doesn't take them away for long periods of their wedding if they want this.

Now I am not saying I am the best that would be silly but the type of clients I have worked for seem to not go for just the price they look for a little bit more which suits me. I don't want to be the wedding photographer who has been picked because he was the cheapest. Thats not to say it works for some people in the business. I'm the one they choose for other reasons[most of the time][modest as well]

 

Bit of fun, well they were enjoying the company with each other and the sunshine. www.chattertonphotography.co.uk

Print competition over four rounds good feeling says SJC photography Hampshire https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/6/print-competition-over-four-rounds-good-feeling-says-sjc-photography-hampshire  

Well I never thought it would happen but my first year with Basingstoke camera club I came away with this.

Honoured to win the print A league.

This was over four rounds with two images each time. There were some fantastic images in the mix from nature to portraits amongst some images presented. The judges are external so no favouritism there then.

The reason for entering was to develop my printing skills which can get lost in a screen digital age. 

Keeping something tangible is more valuable than putting a usb in the draw only to find it is not compatible anymore in the future.

This could be a problem for us if we don't print what is valuable to us to look at over time.

 

Still the next years competition starts from October time 2020 and look forward to seeing all the work that is entered.

Training more important than ever says Steve chatterton photographer in Basingstoke Hampshire https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/5/training-more-important-than-ever-says-steve-chatterton In these uncertain times of a pandemic for all people it has been important to take stock of my business after seeing the family is okay first.

 

Looking at new ways to improve on the level I have already got gives me fresh and invigorates me with fresh ideas.

It gives new tools for potential new clients to trust in me delivering high quality photography.

You could say stop but this art you can always add to the knowledge you already have. Sometimes it can be down to how I process my images speeding this process up leads to more time with clients and taking more images which is one thing I love to do..

D2

Like phones technology changes very fast so being current with software is a must with demands on larger files to edit.

I take advantage of the SWPP society for wedding and portrait photographers which I am a member of. They like some other care reaching out to their members with seminars such as wedding photography tips lighting and marketing. All very useful I must say and why not at this time when none of us are working in this instruction as such. 

Developing never stops like the grande master have said to me never stop learning because if you think you know everything in this industry thats when you come a cropper .

So learning news tools for the clients is always a bonus to me as it is a way of giving back beautiful images to clients to cherish.

 

Thanks SJC photography 

Steve

Take advantage of lockdown and ask questions says Steve wedding photographer Hampshire https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/5/take-advantage-of-lockdown-and-ask-questions-say-steve-wedding-photographer-hampshire While we are in such a unique unprecedented situation at the moment I feel for everyone.

For bride and grooms to be we have had it so good for so long how can we deal with this lockdown.

So while looking for venders why not email for advice and get a more personal feel for who your talking to. 

Questions that may niggle you and may even seem silly can be of value to you and draw you to some sort of conclusion.

To be honest the stats are showing more visitors to my website and enquires for next year are underway for availability.

This is nice but we are all adapting in our own ways.

One I just booked for the lovely Audley's wood Hotel Hampshire all done over the phone. I even don't think my voice is that great but considering they had a list of over 60 photographers initially I did not do to badly. Now thats not to say I am going to fit in everyones box that would be silly as I have learnt over the years in life and business.

So for yourselves I am hear to help even with other vendors that I trust and have worked with at the same weddings I can always advise.

Whether you chose to use me or then like anybody its up to you but at least your have more knowledge to make some sort of decision right?

For the most part these days we click and click again needing that one second to get your attention with thousands of home spun websites that look very professional.

That being said try looking a little deeper on sites its amazing what you can find out.

A quick up date on photography Business lockdown how are we all doing? https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/4/a-quick-up-date-on-photography-business-lockdown-how-are-we-all-doing Well where do you start folks this is a very difficult situation for everyone and I hope everyone is keeping well as can be and all your friends and family.

As a self-employed person this is been a very tricky and I'm sure it is for everyone in my situation but I just thought I would reach out at this time and keep in touch with people and say hello.

For me I have been moving all of my weddings to next year I still got a few that are holding on and I hope that we will be able to do these this year. 

Over the last three weeks it has been a different way of working from home as all the family are now around at the same time with one computer my wife working from home as well as going into work and my son with his college work but he has to finish this years all online. So I am taking the night shift sometimes!

I suspect like a lot of people you are diving into jobs around the house that have been left where we are so busy with our lives before the lockdown.

We've had a good D clutter of the office which has been wonderful and something that my wife has been chipping away at me to do for a long time so I thank her a lot as this is something I'm not really great at.

One of the biggest things I miss about my job is mixing with people and bringing smiles to their faces especially at weddings which I know we created good rapport with my clients.

So At this time like a lot of people missing their families I can really understand how frustrating this is but technology is moved us to a level where at least we can talk to one another even by visual means. 

I have been talking though in a positive manner to clients as much as possible by Skype,FaceTime and good old fashioned phone for enquiries on weddings next year.
So anyone wanting to speak to someone just general chitchat and any information that I can help you with regarding weddings and future portraits that you are thinking of families, children and pets.

This is me signing off Steve Chatterton SJC photography try and enjoy the weather as much as possible and stay safe everyone.

Tell me in the comments how your feeling, doing and how your dealing with this Lockdown.

Dog Lifestyle Portraits by Hampshire photographer Steve Chatterton SJC photography https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/3/dog-portraits-by-hampshire-photographer-steve-chatterton-sjc-photography I was asked to do some images of a cross breed Poodle in the depths of winter. We were planning on natural portraits in this instance as I felt this would bring out the personality of the dogs. 

We planned the shoot in a woodland habitat  that was where the owner had taken their poodles  before in their  morning walks routine so was happy in this environment. The dogs had plenty of energy and so watched for awhile as it ranWe planned the shoot in Forest that was where the owner had taken poodle for its morning walks so was happy in this environment. The dog had plenty of energy and so watched for awhile as it ran around the woods.

I then took in consideration the light that was pinging through the forest at a low angle so I was shooting with backlighting using a 70 to 200 mil lens. This was lots of fun and we had to use quite a high shutter speed to capture the movement of the dog. We took plenty of shots different angles some more actual portraits of dogs standing still as well as moving around enjoying themselves.

SWPP 2020 convention what awesome photography inspiration https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/3/swpp-2020-convention-what-awesome-photography-inspiration Well hello and welcome everyone to another awesome convention.  I had the privilege of attending and helping in the print competition again for 2020.

This is something if you are into photography is well worth going to, and watch, sit, listen and learn from the judges who give their free time to this.

The experience you gain from this is invaluable with praise and tips on improving your images is awesome.

Even when the marks have been good enough for the display there is still room to learn.

I also witnessed a print getting 100 full marks which I believe has happened three times now over the ten years or so that this competition has been running.

Seeing the emotion from the photographer shows how much this all means and there were a few getting the merits needed and above where being one of them meant so much to them and me.

Generally being able to mix and talk to other photographers from other fields of experience is always a good thing to listen to them and understanding their take on photography with years of experience being given to newbies and older generations.

 

I was so proud to achieve three Merit awards for three prints that I entered into the print competition. This is something that I have been wanting to achieve for personal reasons the prints that I entered into the print competition.  I've looked at all the the prints that have gone before and always been very inspirational on wanting simply a rosette if you like just to say reaching that level for those prints.

For some time I thought  this may not be achievable on how to actually get to this level but by going to the convention print judging over the years I've tried taking on board what has been said.

At The convention and actually listening to the judges talk about individual prints in a way that would actually help if you were to be in the situation of a similar sort of shoot yourself would hopefully resinate giving extra tools before you press the shutter.

The judges comments are invaluable and you can take this away taking it on the chin and be respectful of where they are as fellowship photographers being the top in their fields and have earned the right to talk about prints. They're not actually criticising an image actually trying to  Mark  images up as best they can.

 So over the years now  it's not only just about taking the image it's actually about printing  images and bringing them to life in a way that can actually enhance the subject. There's been too many times we just handover digital files basically like a negative that could go in the drawer.

It's actually about printing an image and bringing it to life in a way that can actually enhance the subject. 

The learning process has been a journey and it won't stop and there's always something new in images especially when you're having judges making comments the pluses and minuses which is all very helpful.

You can take this away and process this and put this information into what you are doing. Lots of photographers have made comments stating that when they've actually gone to judging days of the prints they've come away  with so much wealth of information.

So on this awesome convention 2020 till next time.  Thanks Steve

A matter of client photographer relationship has always been one of the top of the list things to pick with inspirational images as well.

There can be nothing better than booking someone that you really get on with and trust. To know them so you feel comfortable in front of camera no matter what level experience you have in front of the camera most of us don't even realise how much we spend around cameras with the digital age.

You have planned the day to perfection as you a likely to get with the closest family and friends you invited.

Clients who book me are like minded in the fact of feeling comfortable its not all about the photography its capturing non posed as well those moments you never get back!

As soon as the clients wedding is booked the work starts for me its not all on the day there are lots of things to go through with clients before there big day. www.chattertonphotography.co.uk www.chattertonphotography.co.uk www.chattertonphotography.co.uk www.chattertonphotography.co.uk www.chattertonphotography.co.uk www.chattertonphotography.co.uk www.chattertonphotography.co.uk

Little portrait offer 2020 spring pets and families in Hampshire https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/2/little-portrait-offer-2020-spring-pets-and-families-in-hampshire It's SJC photography here and I just like to say sorry for being a little bit late here now but time is been quite busy here all winter actually and lots of enquiries for weddings which has gone really well so far with new packages being offered and more skill sets introduced.

I just completed my first wedding at Highfield Park which went really well and managed to get outside for some lovely group shots and some lovely signature shots in the time span we were given there.
All is good and I hope everyone is feeling good even though it's middle of winter with a few traces of snow outside today!

I had really good fun earlier this month capturing images of three dogs and their owner over some local countryside forest near Andover. One I believe was a Labrador poodle which is a cross breed. I could be corrected as I'm not familiar with all dog terminologies and I am told one could be a Labradoodle and yeah you could break out into song with these but I think it's really interesting. I have been asked about my latest ventures that I am going to be selling so here is what I’m offering.

With the new avenue of your family and children and dog portraits this could be a lovely gift especially as Mother's Day is coming upon us.
I am offering trial £39 session which will take place from now and this is going through to Easter with one hour shoot. 

This is a location shoot if you wanna be walking the dogs and your children and yourselves it is always fun and good exercise as well so we're not just locked up in a studio. Weather permitting I do like to take pictures in the rain but it's whether or not you like to get wet or stay dry dry on sunny day preferably. 
This is an opportunity to have fun and bond with your family and make memories for the future. I do offer specialised frames that are handmade by a specialist company and come in variety of bespoke frames to choose from. 

So do get in touch and pass the offer around and it will be good to see everyone this year.

Take care steve

Barton's Mill Old Basing wedding photographer Hampshire https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/11/bartons-mill-old-basing-wedding-photographer-hampshire A lovely wedding venue set in the heart of Hampshire is this stunning mill by the river.

 

The low ceilings and natural wooden decor give this venue a clean rustic feel when it comes to images taken by myself.

 

The natural light piers through hamlet window giving pools of soft light that need care and attention when framing and capturing guests. Small amounts of flash were used to give a pleasing soft light when bounced where possible. This is all part of working as a wedding photographer and being able now to process and work from one room to the next without fluffing around.

Basingstoke Hampshire wedding photographer Registry Office Basingstoke https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/11/basingstoke-hampshire-wedding-photographer-registry-office-basingstoke One of the oldest and nicest registry offices that I have worked at capturing images of weddings.

 

It is always nice with the old look outside of the Georgian office that once was a stately home I believe.

 

The building is known as Goldings and dates back to the 1600 and around 1800 is the building we see to this day.

 

There are grande pillars out the front which gives plenty of opportunity to take some lovely images and can be used for confetti throwing area and looks great in the background.

There are plenty of large windosgiving a soft light inside when taking images and a lovely staircase.

 

The building looks like you have paid for one of the elegant manor houses that are in and around Basingstoke.

So what a treat to capture images here as always.

Hold the front page portrait cover in magazine by Hampshire portrait photographer https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/10/hold-the-front-page-portrait-cover-in-magazine-by-hampshire-portrait-photographer  

It is really nice when one of your images hits the front cover of a magazine.

 

This lovely client and very interesting at that wanted some images to use for their front cover.

 

It was a pleasure talking to him as well sometimes you forget it is actually a job you are doing. To me that makes everything more comfortable for the clients who come to me. Never being in a studio can be like going to the dentist for some people though I won't be pulling any teeth out for you!

The approach is taking our time talking laughing and just getting that look sometimes with  changes of clothes which this is done in preparations before the shoot.

So you don't just turn up cold and no ideas we have a consultation of vision that your trying to achieve and I will come up with suggestions to formulate this with you.

Happy days really pleased for this clients achievements.

Happy Clients collecting their bespoke frames from SJC photography Hampshire portraits https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/10/happy-clients-collecting-their-bespoke-frames-from-sjc-photography-hampshire-portraits  

 

Always happy in my job as a natural moments portrait photographer in Hampshire.

Moving away from the traditional studio and letting clients feel free on location helps settle them down and have fun quicker especially with siblings involved.

I have joined forces with a top framing company that now allows me to show clients what they could potentially get with the frames and their images on screen before they are made.

This lovely couple collected their frames with the ones on show being some of the smaller ones they purchased.

 

They are taking these frames to Spain where they live now, how lucky are they leaving this weather behind.

See you next time for more special images for you.

Basingstoke wedding photographer helps Kevin Wilson at venue capturing the Bride https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/9/basingstoke-photographer-helps-kevin-wilson-at-venue-capturing-the-bride Being an Honour to help Kevin Wilson not only is a fantastic wedding photographer but all round nice chap. 

 

While working and capturing the wedding with Kevin who gives the green light on expressing yourself I took this while Kevin was sorting the dress and pose that he was preparing with this gorgeous bride. Th framing and soft light gave a timeless feel to this image which Kevin had kind words on the day for me and afterwards.

Kevin mentors photographers to achieve greatness and achieving qualifications which I might add he has many.

Looking and creating I have taken from Kevin the things that make me smile, the softness and glamour of wedding photography always looking and taking note without being obtrusive during the day.

 

Never stop learning!!!

Basingstoke photographer gets monthly award from swpp https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/9/basingstoke-photographer-gets-monthly-award-from-swpp I like to take my camera when I am away visiting places as you never know what you come up against and get a little surprise of something that takes your eye to photograph.

We were on a mini break in the midlands when this unique structure was found with a added bonus of  maintenance being done by a climber over the building.

I received a Highly commended for this in the society of wedding and portraits which is always nice that they feel it is worthy of above normal professional standard and has something more in their judgement when you look at it.

Bridal tips for images in Hampshire Basingstoke wedding photographer https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/8/bridal-tips-for-images-in-hampshire-basingstoke-wedding-photographer For Brides

 

When you look through magazines on a break at work or in the comfort of your own home dreaming about the fantastic day you are going to have, be mindful of the images that can be created for you that you see as an idea from the magazine. 

 

You look thinking yes I love that idea and show your photographer. 

What happens with bridal preparations the expectations can fall short if you only have a kitchen to change in compared to a grande wedding suite  in a Hotel with lovely window light to complement the images you saw in the magazine. So being mindful of what you have as rooms compared to what you would like image wise has to be managed.

 

Talking through these ideas with myself can help in understanding where you're heading with the images we can create for you to get the best possible outcome. As their maybe ways to create something nice without the grande Hotel that might not be in your budget.

 

The Elveltham, Warbook House, Highfield Park, Oakley Hall all have large windows to help with that light.

Hampshire wedding photographer Bride alone portrait at Highfield Park venue https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/7/hampshire-wedding-photographer-bride-alone-portrait-at-highfield-park-venue This is a portrait  that I thought captured the bride peacefully in her own mind as can be before the ceremony.

Everyone is different but giving the Bride a few moments to collect her thoughts and have myself talk calmly to capture some beautiful individual moments helps settle them down.

 

I thought this image reminded me of a vintage style that I saw years ago that helped inspire me to become a wedding photographer in Basingstoke. I thank you to all the images that have captivated me to do this.

Hampshire wedding photographer at Northbrook Park https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/5/wedding-hampshire-photographer-at Here at a lovely Hampshire wedding venue Northbrook Park I had the pleasure of shooting along side Alistair Jones.I was in charge of the groom preparations as it was Alistair's wedding he had the bridal preparation .

I rather like the banter of the groom getting ready as I normally miss this when capturing images of the brides in the morning when working alone.

Northbook House is a splendid Manor set in the depths of the British countryside.

There are plenty of places to create stunning images in many ways.

Basingstoke wedding photography Elvetham Hall https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/4/basingstoke-wedding-photography-elvetham-hall  

I had the pleasure of photographing this wedding at Elvetham Hall with Alistair Jones as a second photographer as there was lots to cover during the coarse of the day.

Its always interesting when I have second photographers to work with me closely in my mind the work has to be of a professional high standard still and has to work with a flow that blends two photographers work together to make a seamlessly stitched finished article of the day.

 

So here are my images from the day to give you just one side of the story at Elvetham Hall Fleet Rd, Hartley Wintney, Hook RG27 8AS

Basingstoke wedding photographer Winter wedding at Tylney Hall Hampshire all in the dark https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/4/winter-wedding-at-tylney-hall-hampshire-all-in-the-dark This was a wonderful wedding in December of my lovely clients who decided to move their wedding forward to to family circumstances. 

 

To show willing in this we went through their day to see what was what.

 

Who, where and when was the sorting point of the day. 

 

They wanted natural portraits where possible though the groom went through the pain barrier to get the images as he had a really painful back and was finding it hard without rest on the day. He was determined not to let this dame the day for his lovely bride and family.

Judging photography competition for schools in Andover to go on to regional final in nature theme https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/3/judging-for-schools-in-andover-to-go-on-to-regional-final-in-nature-theme I was delighted to be asked to help in Andover Hampshire with a few others to judge some images in photography nature categories.

 

Each student had to enter three images printed for us to view and judge.

It was very exciting to see the styles and development of the young people with such diverse ideas.

There were some individual images that really stood out but we had to look for three that could combine and back up with each other.

 

The concept was quite open but we felt there were three or four in some cases that were very close on who to choose as the winner at this stage.

I was quite taken in the fact that I would have loved to have taken some of these photos myself as an adult not alone at there youthful age.

I think in this digital  age we can develop quicker as photographers with the freedom to take more images and not worry as in my day of film with 36 on a roll and developing costs as well on top.

This made me hold back some times and not experiment as freely as possibly as you could now.

But in saying that with weddings I shoot less is more these days and not machine gunning in hope of capturing that great image I prefer timing as one of the main components in my head that is to facilitate a good standard.

 

So all in all it was a good day to have been asked to help judge. It is something not to take lightly as these students have put their heart and souls into this competition. So encouraging  to keep going even if you did not win at this stage does not mean to give up.

First and foremost it is about enjoying photography and this will take you through the test of time as you look back at your images captured through the years.

Part from weddings I have been developing the love with photoshop art.

So combing images to tell my own story is something I really like to do.

So I will be entering a few more creations in my own society and clubs I am with. I have had a few golds and highly commended now which are above the professional standard and are showing degrees in the judges eyes of that little something extra that turns one eyebrow up in acknowledgement.

 

So being a judge has opened my eyes again and inspired myself to enter more comps why not!

Having a slow exposure and giving movement in the dramatic sky of this windmill.

 

Well just to add to this got awarded a highly commended  for this image which was a nice touch as they are hard to come by from the SWPP which I belong to.

I entered this the the February competition so as I said always nice to achieve a good standard that the judges like.

Andover wedding photographer Stonehenge and the Hawk Conservancy weddings Wiltshire-Hampshire https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/2/stone-henge-and-the-hawk-conservancy-weddings-wiltshire-hampshire It was a great year 2018 for adventuring in to new venues round the south of England,Hampshire,Surrey and Wiltshire area.

 

I had the pleasure of working with Alistair Jones who needed an extra photographer.

So I engaged with his clients like they were my own on the day concentrating on positions and anything I would look for on my own weddings around Basingstoke.

 

There was a unique wedding at Stonehenge that was a 4.30am start there was mist through the stones which gave it a brilliant atmosphere as it rolled over the undulations of the downs and stones.

The formal wedding celebrations were at  Hawk conservancy Andover SP11 8DY.It is a great place to visit for families not alone weddings.

The lovely wedding of Beckie and David at Esseborne Manor Hurstbourne Tarrant, Andover https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/11/the-lovely-wedding-of-beckie-and-david-at-esseborne-manor-hurstbourne-tarrant-andover Essborne Manor is located close to Highclere Castle, home of the television series Downton Abbey.

This is a lovely family run Victorian Country Hotel and is ideal for those wanting a countryside Manor wedding.

I started the day in the morning with Beckie having her hair and make up and throughout the morning I was seeing the groom David as well for some cool groom shots.

It was a beautiful sunny day with some gorgeous low light catching through the trees and adding atmosphere to some of the images taken.

The friends and family were all very warm and welcoming and it was a real pleasure to capture the day for them.

I was very excited to be part of this special day and capture their wedding as it unfolded through the day. We had a few discussions about their day and the parts where we would do some images of just the two of them as well as capturing little moments.

 

It’s always lovely to put the images together for the final gallery. www.chattertonphotography.co.uk

 

After their honeymoon in Hawaii we went through a slide show to relive the day for them.

 

Here are a few from the day.

Fairytale wedding photography at Audleys Wood Hotel in Hampshire by Chatterton https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/10/fairytale-wedding-photography-at-audleys-wood-hotel-in-hampshire-by-chatterton We all love a good wedding right well this was no exception with Abby and Mike getting married on one of the hottest summers on record. I was approached in 2017 about my wedding photography and how they felt they wanted to book me from my images that I present on my website.This is always a great start and we hit it off with various meetings and a lovely pre wedding shoot where we went to the next level of trust when they saw what I had done for them.

 

They wanted to capture the whole day so we started with the bridal preps where I found everyone very calm and having a few giggles along the way.

I turned my attention to Mike who as a groom didn't show signs of nerves and was happy having a few captured moments  with the boys.

The day panned out nicely with the friendly well organised Audleys Wood Hotel helping the wedding run smoothly .

it was lovely to capture the horse and carriage as part of their day where Abby's love for animals running her own horse business came across beautifully.

 

Here are a few from the day.

Broughton summer countryside wedding in Hampshire https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/9/broughton-summer-countryside-wedding-in-hampshire What a fantastic wedding I had the pleasure of capturing at Broughton in Hampshire. 

 

Mel and Steve are a friendly down to earth couple and taking their wedding photos for them was a lot of fun.We had some location ideas we went through before the big day and with the hot sun beaming all day had great opportunities to do this.

Their family and friends were very welcoming and were always asking if I had drinks which was a nice thought by them. 

It was a really chilled fun atmosphere and you could sense a good vibe of people really getting on together from the French side and English side gelled really well.

They really enjoyed the shoot today with great feedback making the couple see how I work around them and a good indication for reassurance on the big day!

Heres what they said.

Thanks so much for spending so much time with us on Saturday, we really appreciate all your efforts and obviously we're very excited for the big day. Thanks also for the preview photos that you sent through so quickly, these look awesome and we can't wait to see the photos from the wedding itself, particularly after how relaxed we felt on Saturday.

wedding question for photographer information Hampshire Basingstoke https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/3/wedding-question-for-photographer-information-hampshire-basingstoke Always nice when I book clients for weddings for feed back.

Latest clients

1.What made you first became interested in seeing me? "we saw you through google search and liked the style of wedding images you had."

2.Fantastic you were on a budget did that influence you? "Yes and no we saw your quote and yes you were the most expensive but again we saw how professional your images looked compared to the less expensive sites we saw.I showed the short list actually to Chris and without saying anything he picked you out as well."

3.Lovely thats nice to hear and take heart from thanks, was there any concerns? "Not really just we have heard some photographers show their Bride and groom the photos from time to time on the day."  Yes that is something I do as reassurance on say your signature romantic shots we take, this shows you where we are going with the images and its nice to have more creative input from the couple themselves.

 

So booking your wedding photographer can be a minefield, so do some research and feel comfortable with who you hire as they will be there the longest with you all day.

Winter wonderland wedding at Highfield Park Hampshire https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/3/winter-wonder-wedding-at-highfield-park-hampshire  

A beautiful day in February at Highfield Park Hampshire where I was booked to capture the lovely wedding of Emma and Marc.

They were a well organised couple and very down to earth on their special day at this grand Hotel.

We had some great moments as they gave time for some fantastic images in and around the hotel on a freezing cold day. This did not stop them from having fun though some couples would have bottled it for staying in the warm but not these two they were up for it, that makes me happy.

As I said to them you may regret not taking some images outside as it was dry still with a lovely sunset to capture them with as well.

All said though the family and friends were warm and welcoming and thats the way I like it.

A few exciting projects I am helping with apart from wedding enquires through 2018 and 2019 one is with a pop star thats all I have been briefed with at the moment and the other is quite dramatic lighting and will take a few of us hand held with advanced knowledge base to pull off some splendid images of a trained dancer.

Also bookings coming in for 2019 where by one of the brides booked me after the farther who also is a wedding photographer from the midlands found me on google {nice complement}.

Well first wedding in a months time is at Highfield Park Hampshire so looking forward to that as a winter wedding.

Low light giving different ambience at this time of year giving a romantic Christmas feel to the day.

So anyone looking for weddings or Fine Art Portraits let me know and tell me what you want captured.

Thanks for reading

Steve

Digital Art Litter curiosity by squirrel Hampshire England https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/12/digital-art-litter-curiosity-by-squirrel-hampshire-england This lovely squirrel I photographed sitting on a bench gave me an idea though not straight away I might add.

Composite idea with the old can and background as we see more and more of this intrusion on to mother nature. Will it get better one can only try.

This image was entered into the swpp monthly competition and I was very happy when I received a highly commended for this .

Feel free to comment below.

Wedding at St Stevens Church and Reception at Bishopswood Golf Coarse https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/11/wedding-at-st-stevens-church-and-reception-at-bishopswood-golf-coarse  

This was the lovely and charming wedding of Kathleen and Ray near Tadley.

It was a beautiful sunny day back in June 

It all goes so soon

The day was set when they both met

Sometime in the afternoon

The congregation arrived with the flowers in full bloom

Everyone was over the moon

Smiling and laughing with hugs and kisses

They still remembered with heart felt love the ones close and not forgotten

So here ends my little tale and the story goes on captured in raw to show you the parts of the romantic day

Happy clients with their wedding album at Highfield Park near Reading https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/11/happy-clients-with-their-wedding-album-at-highfield-park-near-reading Had the pleasure with working with this lovely couple from start to finish with the presentation of their wedding album at Highfield Park near Reading.

It is always a journey we have with our wedding clients from the first meet up, through the engagement shoot to the wedding itself.Then the album design that puts the cherry on top of the cake.

How important at a personnel level we work with clients like Yvonne and Kevin below on where that journey ends up with a handmade album for them to cherish and love with pride.

I cannot stress enough on a personal note how important it is to show your work the best way and not just give a usb stick. Quality is what I like to deliver for all my clients with Handmade albums.Yes you can save money and a lot of time without a album but for me thats not the point with wedding memories.

Would you just have the material given to you to make the dress probably not, thats why I like to hand a tactile object of high quality in your hands.

All I do is give 150% to clients from the off and give them a big chuffed smile to me when they receive their album. 

Even after this I still look to improve and take further training and stay in the loop in todays market.

 

Here is what they said.

Collected our wedding album last night from Steve, all I can say is my husband and I are blown away with the finished article. Stunning is an under statement. We had a speedway themed wedding and was lucky enough for our team Eastbourne Eagles to loan us a bike for the day. Steve captured the bike to perfection as you can see from our front cover. I can not recommend SJC Photography enough, he went above and beyond to make our day just perfect, always there to capture that special moment. A huge heart felt thanks from Kevin and I for our beautiful memories we shall treasure forever.

BBC Good food Show at the Tower of London Feast Supper Club with Michel Roux jr https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/9/bbc-good-food-show-at-the-tower-of-london-feast-supper-club The evening was started with a welcome glass of fizz and experience close up action as Michelin master Michel Roux Jr cooks live on stage in the Feast Kitchen.

He was captivating to say the least, with his warm persona that melted over the audience like one of his main meals he was preparing.

 A Yeoman Warder escorted the guests to see the crown jewels through the Tower for a private tour followed by a drinks reception and canapés.

There was a special book signing with Michel Roux Jr. where his friendly warmth was in abundance.

Lexus were one of the sponsors who kindly showed three of their latest cars around The Tower of London.

Finally, you will be called for a truly extravagant feast, paired with stunning wines in the White Tower itself where there is so much history,if only the walls

could talk to us they would have lots to say.

It is always good to test yourself in todays market of wedding photography. I am looking patiently around as the ceremony gets underway hey presto the mirror just below the feet stood out and was my main focal point on this occasion to capture the guest intently looking.

I am constantly getting asked do you take pictures of things going on? Well the answer is yes I do.

Fun wedding at Wasing Park With SJC photography https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/8/fun-wedding-at-wasing-park-with-sjc-photography

I thought as a wedding photographer this time just adding a quick photo with the Bridesmaids having fun at Wasing Park Aldermaston near Newbury. Some of the best photos come when clients feel relaxed in front of the camera. I am always working to be part of the crowd and mingle quietly around what is proceeding in front of the camera.

Fantasy digital art Giraffe and castle https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/7/fantasy-digital-art-giraffe-and-castle This is a creation that is from a series of animals in digital art that I have been working on this year between weddings and such.

It's a personal project that has lit up my skills in photoshop learning the hard way, but this has added extra strings to the bow as you might say.

I have always loved the colours in the sky and all the photos in this were my own. Individually there not much to shout about on there own but when I find what I am looking for it clicks quite well to put them together and create something different.

Just because I have wedding,events and portraits business as my main photography does not mean to say I should stay on these roads but thats just me really.

I always look to try something new and that in its self helps my main business in so many ways.

 

This is a land of giant peaceful Giraffes  looking after the castle in some way.

Highfield Park wedding Yvonne and Kevin https://www.chattertonphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/7/highfield-park-wedding-yvonne-and-kevin This fabulous wedding was this July on a glorious hot summer's day.

I prepared with this wonderful couple going through their big day in detail to make sure they were happy with how I worked around the day and let it flow to how the venue had worked the timings for them.

They are mad about speedway and visit Eastbourne frequently to watch. So the owners brought a bike all the way to Highfield Park and was set at the bottom of the spiral stairs for all to see. 

Here's what the couple said to me through email afterwards when they had seen their photos.

"From the moment we met Steve at a wedding fair back in 2016 we have been extremely pleased with the service offered. He is very professional, caring and understanding of your needs. The laid back approach we have had at our meetings is a welcome change, it makes you instantly strike a good relationship up thus making your preparations much easier as he gets a good understanding of you and your needs. Our pre-wedding photo shoot at our venue was a lovely idea and it gave Steve an insight into how we work together as a couple and also gave us ideas of photos we would like on the big day. Come the wedding day everything was 100% perfection. We have been back to view the photos taken, again it was all very chilled and relaxed, just need to choose some for our album, they are all so good, we have a hard decision to make. Would not hesitate to use Steve again."

It is satisfaction from clients that makes me pick up the camera to take weddings it's never taken for granted by me and it should not be by couple's that are looking for a professional photographer.

It is not just a job in capturing something so precious it has taken years to get to this level. I cannot wait to start designing the album for them they are a lovely couple and fantastic to work for.
