Hayley had seen the pictures & wanted to partner up for the festival. Of course one look at her awe inspiring dresses meant I couldn’t refuse. As well as setting up a stand with her to promote Shutter Go.. Click & Glory Days Vintage to the thousands of visitors. I also had the pleasure of photographing both a catwalk fashion show & a more styled bridal shoot with some beautiful models in & around the venue (What a hard life)
It was great to be representing my business alongside both my dad & my wife who helped out on the day. Without my wife to support me over the last year I wouldn’t be doing this for a living. Without my dad (My lifelong creative inspiration) I’d have settled for a simple office job & wouldn’t have the drive or ambition to push myself creatively. With Mrs Shutter Go.. Click manning our table whilst I went off to shoot, & my dad acting as my photography assistant/light stand. I couldn’t have done it without them.
Shutter Go.. Click Photography, Glory Days Vintage, Faye Robertson. What I’d like to think we all have in common is that we try to approach weddings a little bit differently. Gone are the days when a bride simply wants a regular meringue or their nan taking their pictures on a disposable camera. Long gone are the days when a bride is stuck with the make up of a budget prostitute ;-) For me personally, weddings are as much of an art form as a sunset over a rolling landscape, as edge of your seat street photography. As much of an art form as that monochromatic shot of an apple floating in a dead mans hat. Not only do we all specialise in vintage (because it’s our preferred aesthetic) but we are also striving to make our own mark on a market that is slowly steering away from centuries of convention.
