Richard and SanjaPosted by Jake Woodnutt on Thu 11th Sep 2014 @ 11:48 am
I jumped on a plane back in July to Gloucestershire to photograph Richard and Sanja's wedding. I have know both Richard and Sanja from I think 4 previous weddings which they have attended and I have photographed. I rarely advertise as a photographer which when I get weddings like this, it really makes me happy that my previous customers have recommended me to their friends.
Richard and Sanja...
'Rich and I looked through the photos yesterday and we were blown away! Thank you so much! The photos are incredible! It was exactly what we wanted...looking through all of them transported us right back to the emotions and vibes of the day. Incredible! You are very talented and we wish you a long and successful career. It was a pleasure having you there on our day and we hope you enjoyed yourself.
Thank you again! You've kept the day alive for us so beautifully.'
Book Shop PaulPosted by Jake Woodnutt on Tue 28th Jan 2014 @ 11:27 pm
Paul used to own the Book Shop in Victoria Street, Alderney. Deeply into his books Paul sits in the bar and I used to serve him coffee. One day I said to myself, He is a very well known local on Alderney, and what a character! I would very much like to photograph him. One day I was helping Paul carrying boxes of books up the flight of stairs for him when I thought, now would be a good time to ask him! We arranged a date for when I was to come and take photographs.
Later that week I turned up with my camera, no posing or 'look at the camera', I just asked him to read. and occasionally I would ask him a question and for his response he would look at me (behind the camera). I think it worked really well, these are the photos I like to take- Natural.
Thank you Paul for agreeing to let me take photos.
