I've always wanted to shoot a proposal. Hiding away at a distance to shoot the moment and capture the raw emotion and reactions that come out. I'd imagine that with all the nerves of the proposer and shock/joy of the proposee, the moment can become a blur in their minds and nothing to show for it apart from a selfie afterwards to showcase the ring on hand.
Without going around asking friends individually if they were going to pop the question to their other halves, I put a post on instagram a week before Valentines Day to let anyone following know that I was up for shooting any proposals. Fortunately Jonny got in contact as he was going to pop the question at the Sunborn Yacht Hotel at the Excel Centre before they went to see Drake.
When I arrived to the hotel I managed to arrange an empty balcony overlooking the O2 and told Jonny to take Marnie up there. I set-up a Gopro, to see if I could film the moment too, and hid behind a pillar. Check out the photos below.
My first post of the year brings you the wedding of Hannah & Robin. After their Mehndi 2 days prior, I was raring to go having had a little taste of how things were gunna be and getting familiar with some of the guests already. 12hrs, 1 double decker bus, 380 guests and a dance off later, the results await below. Shoutout to Olly for helping out and Hayley the MUA who's wedding I covered earlier last year
To see in the new year I'm also offering up to £300 off my prices for a limited time. Message me for terms and to let me know what you have planned for your big day.
A bit late in the day but thought I'd do my first Black Friday deal. £100 off my normal prices if booked by the end of the year.
Seeing as I started from scratch again with the site I lost the weddings I had already posted over the last few years. So as promised on instagram, here's a repost of one of my favourite weddings of 2013.
Yesterday saw a wonderful day of sun between wet autumn days. It was a perfect backdrop for the very relaxed wedding of Grace & Tony at the Old Parish Rooms in Rayleigh. Here's a few teaser shots of the day.
Just a quick post today to mark the 1st anniversary of Clint & Faye as I never got around to posting it before the overhaul of the blog. I was only asked to cover the ceremony at Langtons Registry Office in Hornchurch but Clint and their son Chester was getting ready at Black Moth Barbers round the corner so I said I'd stop by too as I really wanted to shoot some photos in there. win win! Oh and then I was his chauffeur to the ceremony lol
2 teasers today! lucky you. Had to miss the first day of our family holiday for this but it was totally worth it, brilliant day and glad I didn't miss out on shooting this couples day.
It's gunna be a while until the full wedding makes it on here so here is a lil teaser for everyone to enjoy until then, especially while Mr&Mrs Inayat are on honeymoon in California right now.
Hi and welcome to the new and improved RM1 photography blog. I'm gunna kick this off with a "few" of my favourites from Hayley & Mitch's wedding at the beautiful Hengrave Hall in Bury st Edmunds. Grab a cuppa and enjoy. See you at the next post.
