The Samlesbury Hotel, just outside Preston, has some interesting locations for wedding photography, if you go looking for them.
Whilst I only had the ELB1200 Action and Pro head to play with, I fancied my chances with pushing the Pro head as far as I could with the Skyport HS transmitter.
La Locanda is an Italian restaurant in Gisburn. A very intimate atmosphere with a real homely feel to it. I’d been asked to photograph a few dishes for a magazine article.
This is Emily and Richard, who married at Gibbon Bridge in August. A beautiful venue with some stunning opportunities for wonderful bridal portraits.
Talk about coincidence. The day after the motorcycle shoot, I had an enquiry to photograph a couple of cars.
I had been contacted by the owner of the Cherry Tree in Blackrod, a rather nice restaurant with an excellent reputation regarding its food.
Having had my first shoot with the ELB1200, I wanted a complete change of subject and challenges for my second shoot.
This particular image was part of a bridal brochure shoot for the Marriott hotel group. They had a healthy number of wedding bookings, but there seemed an obvious lack of engagement with the Asian community. A review of their wedding marketing image quickly revealed why. There were no Asian bridal imagery displayed anywhere. It’s difficult to engage a target customer if they cannot see an established relationship with similar clients.
