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…

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!”

Family Portraits at Sutton Scarsdale

Since my mum pointed at that Sutton Scarsdale was not very far from my house I’d been itching to do a shoot there. Luckily I got my chance with a brilliant trash the dress shoot. It was great but only made me want one of my own family more. So on the 1st of October, when it was ridiculously warm for that time of year, I dragged my little family and some grandparents, aunts, uncles and a not quite yet cousin off to Sutton Scarsdale to have a picnic and play with the camera.

Paula & Mark at Haigh Hall, Wigan

abi pegg photography

You may recognise this lovely couple from their engagement shoot I did earlier in the year. As august rolled round it was time for their big day. Paula had done an amazing job in planning the wedding. Mark works over seas and they hadn’t seen each other for over 2 months as Paula walked down the aisle. The day was beautiful, filled with family and laughter, and after a lot of nerves, the happy couple thoroughly relaxed enjoying their day. It was a brilliant day, full of lovely people and a fantastic venue.

How to celebrate your 10th anniversary…

abi pegg photography

I was so excited when my friend Venishia asked me about this shoot. She and her husband Rob were married 10 years ago in august and she wanted to celebrate with a family photo shoot – with a twist. There was one goal in mind for this shoot, provide photo evidence of Venishia reaching her target of fitting back in her wedding dress by their 10th anniversary. So really it was a trash the dress shoot! Love it!

They have four amazing boys and we got to have some fun with some props at Sutton Scarsdale Hall. Rob and Venishia said they felt so shell shocked on their wedding day they didnt get to enjoy the photos and don’t really have any they like, so what a great way to make new memories.  It was an amazing day to be part of and I’m completely stealing the idea for my 10th anniversary next year.

Robert and Bethany (aka cinderella)

This was one of those weddings I was really looking forward too for a while. Bethany lives in sheffield and I’ve known her bubbly personality for a while. She is the kind of person that has a very contagious laugh, which made my job on the day fantastic, as every other second she was cracking up about something. Bethany was obviously thoroughly enjoying being dressed up all day and a few commented she looked like Cinderella. They got married in July so the weather was lovely and warm, the chapel was bursting with family and it was an amazingly light and cheery atmosphere. For such a huge guest list, everybody was so chilled out that the whole day ran smoothly. I thoroughly enjoyed photographing these two, especially as Rob was such a good sport having lots of extra photos of him and his lovely bride. It’s soooooo hard to narrow down my favourites of this wedding so I’m going to try be extremely strict with myself, so here goes…

My amazing friend Starrisha style Bethany’s hair and did her make up. Shes is also sheffield based. I thought her hair looked stunning, you can’t see a single grip, not one other hairdresser I’ve worked with has managed that, so bravo Starrisha.

A shoot for a family from the other side of the world…

Several years ago my cousin Ruth, married and moved to america. Since then, she has had two lovely girls. Finally, she bought her new family over to visit for the first time. She asked me if I could possibly sneak a photo shoot in to their schedule when visiting, as (being so loyal) she loves my photos and hadn’t been able to find anyone else in america she liked to capture her family. Flattery will get you everywhere Ruth! So before the entire family came over for a barbecue we headed off to the brampton park in newcastle under lyme, where we used to play in as kids for the shoot. It’s very fortunate I have experience in shooting toddlers at high speed as Olivia was a loose canon. It was an absolute pleasure to shoot them and some of the most fun I’ve had doing a family shoot. We got a million shots, but here, as always, are my very favourites…

The Walshaw trio

At the beginning of July our family went to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park with our good friends for the afternoon. I’d taken my camera along in the hopes that in between chasing my kids around I might get some nice shots of the day, ambitious, I know. Luckily towards the end of them running out of energy I was able to snap a few of gorgeous little Rory (my son Zach’s partner in crime) along with some nice family shots with her mum and dad.

Baby Nathaniel

When I studied photography back in the day, it was with an ancient SLR (by todays standards anyway). You remember the kind, with the film where you had to develop it, then make your own prints. I think this is why I really enjoy editing as it reminds me of developing prints in the dark room. So when I got my first digital SLR it had been a while since I’d taken on a photography project. I had the chance to ask the lovely Laura from my home town if I could tag along at her wedding to practise, having a bit of fun with some shots. Now two years on, and with much more experience she asked me to photograph her brand new addition. Nathaniel loved watching the camera but also loved his mum a whole lot more, so we had to work fast and around him needing extra cuddles. Some of my favourite shots were when Tom (the dad) and Laura are trying to calm him, and are laughing and talking with her sisters who were playing the audience at the side of the room, it’s shows them in real family life then! with a few posey ones thrown in of course…so heres a few…

My cousin had pointed out a blog to me the same day I did this shoot, of a lady that uses things around the house to make some awesome scenes to photograph her baby in, I couldn’t resist trying one out myself…

A quick snap

A few weeks ago while on my way back from another shoot, I dropped in on one of my best friends. She’d just given birth to a beautifully scrunchy boy, who was snoozing when I got there. Since I had all my gear on me anyway, I took the chance to steal a few shots.  So here’s baby Jobe, just a mini copy of his brother…
