Lancaster engagement shoot

A few weeks ago I met up with the lovely Sam and Gareth for their engagement shoot in Lancaster:-)

I always like to do engagement shoots in locations which have a special meaning to the couple, so we met up near Lancaster Castle as it was where Gareth proposed to Sam (with fireworks!). It was a really fun shoot and we had a great time, Sam and Gareth were both brilliant in front of the camera and we even had a beautiful sunset too!

Sam and Gareth get married next month at Eaves Hall in Clitheroe and I can’t wait, I know it’s going to be an amazing day!

Wedding photography workshops in Manchester

Yesterday I joined up with my great friends, the uber-talented Liam and Bee Crawley of CG Weddings, for part 5 of our wedding photography workshops in Manchester and what a brilliant day it was!

We were joined this time by Sachin Khona, an incredible wedding photographer based in Canada. Sachin gave an awesome presentation on his business, how he works and his inspirations – thank you so much again Sachin, it was great to meet you and your presentation was amazing!

We always seem to be very lucky to have such great and lovely photographers come on our workshops and it was exactly the same this time. We always love the fact that everybody who joins us gets on so well and helps to make our workshops so enjoyable and lots of fun – so thank you to everybody who came along, we hope you all had a great day.

Massive thank yous also to our brilliant models, Kirsty and Kyle Hassall (the ulimate wedding couple – Kirsty is brilliant singer and Kyle a fantastic wedding photographer himself) and Kit – you were all so good to work with and we are very grateful. Huge thank you also to my great friends Laura and Stu from Laurel Weddings for very kindly making us two beautiful bouquets – they were perfect – and to the always brilliant Samira Rankin from Flossy & Leigh for making the girls look even more amazing:)

    Martin Hambleton - I’ve gushed enough in the past over your portraits – you know I love them to bits. So today I just wanted to compliment you on your pose in the last shot. Your take on Blue Steel?
