Weddings, Portraits, Engagements, Trash the dress

Part of the reason I’ve been delaying posting anything new on my blog is because I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to organise my online storage space. Images take up so much and I’m rapidly running out on here but I still want to share all my favourite shots from each wedding and more. So I have a new plan. Since all of my work is found by word of mouth, mainly thanks to facebook, I’m going to concentrate on my photography page. I will still post on here, but it will be more of a sample and then with a link to the full album on facebook. Hopefully this will help me keep everything more updated as I am ridiculously behind. So watch this space for my catch up sample posts.

The link to my Albums page is here…

Mark the date- Richard and Beth

Back in october, it was my best friend’s anniversary. Her husband rang me up a couple of days before, asking if he could just have 3/4 photos to “mark the date”. I thought it was a great idea, you don’t want a full blown shoot, but just want something to remember the day. He took her out for lunch, then bought her round without warning (a risky move) and we shot a few photos. It was so nice in fact, that it was our 10th anniversary of being engaged the next week that my husband suggested we do the same…

Sneak Peek for Grace & Josh…

It’s been so long since I’ve posted anything, I thought I’d better post at least one pic. I’ve been swamped with weddings and family portraits over the summer, so watch this space when I finally have time to add some larger posts. For now, here’s something from Josh and Grace’s most anticipated wedding. I’ve done a portrait shoot for these in spring 2011, and a prewed shoot at the beginning of this year, and I knew their wedding was going to be amazing! Here’s my favourite shot so far…

Baby Austin

My wonderfully amazing friend had her second baby this spring. A very handsome boy, Austin. While our other kids were playing, I managed to get a couple of quick shots while the little man was happy for me too, turns out he’s quite the model.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Mum’s the word…Lydia, Ross and Ellen’s present for Mother’s day

Ok, so I know Mother’s day was a while ago, but I’m very good at getting distracted. I’m way behind with my blogging and have a few more to catch up on besides this. So, I got a text from Lydia about a week before mother’s day saying she wanted a nice sibling photograph for her mum, coz let’s face it, us mother’s always love a pic of the kids together. With quick secret planning we met up at Rother Valley and did a 15 minute shoot. Mum was very pleased with their efforts and it’s now displayed on the wall 🙂

Matthew & Bethany’s Wedding, Manchester

abi pegg photography, matthew & bethanys wedding

Matt and Beth got married in March at the Manchester Stake Centre. It was a lovely laid back wedding with lots of personal touches. The day was full of smiles and friends. It reminded me all over again the power of young love, Beth was soaking up the day, with a never ending smile while Matt had a look of absolute awe every time he looked at Beth, which was most of the time.  One of my favourite weddings yet, here’s some of my many favourite images… and a few words from the bride herself…

“Abi was absolutely amazing on our wedding day. She was like a fourth Bridesmaid for me in helping the day flow and keep to its schedule. Her eyes weren’t just behind the lense, they were watching all the little things go on to make sure everything was as it should be. She ended up fixing button holes and bits of hair, and when me and the groom somehow got left behind at the church she even drove us to the reception! Most of all, she was a happy and cheerful photographer which makes all the difference when it’s the most special day of your life. And I suppose the ultimate thing is the actual photos! All of which were beautiful and captured our day just as we imagined. We couldn’t have asked for anyone better – she was fantastic!”

Abby and Tom’s Wedding, January at Keele Hall

I was very flattered when Abby contacted me about the photography for her wedding as she told me I was the first thing on her list of wedding jobs. Abby had seen my photos on facebook and knew she wanted me as her photographer, which was completely brilliant and also a fair bit of pressure to live up to expectations. What was even better though, was that me and Abby go back a long way. We went to high school together and I hadn’t seen her in over 12 years, which makes me feel like a proper grown up, lol. This gave me a slight advantage as her photographer as I knew her strong character back then, and knew she will have only got stronger, so I knew the classic with a twist edge she was after in her photos. So without further a-do, heres my favourites…

Rachel and Craig’s Wedding, at Quarry Bank Mill in Manchester

I’ve been very fortunate with my photography, as most of my work comes through word of mouth and bridesmaids. Rachel was a bridesmaid for Lizzie’s wedding that I did back in april 2011, and Lizzie was a bridesmaid for Emma’s wedding back in 2010. So I’ve been very lucky that these girls saw me in action on the wedding, knew what I was like to work with and then booked me for their special day.

Rachel squeezed her wedding in between Christmas and New Year, so there was the added bonus of christmas lights everywhere. It was cold, but not too bad, and the weather held which I never complain at. They had their reception at Quarry Bank Mill in Manchester, which I believe is a national trust site. It’s unlike anywhere else I’ve shot before for a wedding and it was wonderfully refreshing to have something different to work with, I thoroughly enjoyed it (as I always do anyway). I asked Rachel after the honeymoon to write a little note to any engaged ladies that happen to look at this blog and impart any wisdom she has for the big day…

 

To a future bride

Firstly, if you haven’t decided whether to book Abi yet, book her! She isn’t just an amazing photographer but she makes the day run so smooth. We didn’t have to worry about getting guests together for photos. She made sure I was keeping to schedule. You would not find anyone more efficient (THANK YOU ABI). A tip for the day, it’s all out of your control so sit back and enjoy and remember why you’ve endured a number of breakdowns for months from planning a wedding…so you can marry the one! So try and focus on that. You have probably heard it many times before and I’m only 4 weeks in, but married life really is the best!

An engagement teaser…

Last spring I had the opportunity to photograph Josh & Grace, this spring I was asked to shoot them again, but for their engagement! (We all knew it was heading that way) But seems as the invitations haven’t gone out yet, I can only give you a little teaser, so watch this space…

Muchos Baby Portraits

Before Christmas, people are obviously thinking about buying presents for loved ones. I’ve been very fortunate that so many people have thought to give portraits to grandparents and such this year as I’ve been asked to take the photos. I’ve come a long way with this since I first returned to the camera, and still have a long way to go, but I’m very grateful I’ve had so many willing happy babies to photograph for some good experience. Here’s some of the cuties I shot before christmas…
