I have been really busy with weddings this spring, partcularly April and May, despite the lack of postings on the blog! Especially with large Asian wedding photography which has longs hours of coverage, it is easy to get behind on admin despite perseverence.
Saima and Kris met me through a past bride whose wedding I photographed in Liverpool a couple of years ago (you can still see some of their portfolio photos on the portfolio section of my site all these years later), and I was delighted to cover their beautiful wedding in Leeds at the gorgeous Art Deco Queens Hotel. They had liked how I worked as a female wedding photographer – discreet and in the background, but capturing all the little details and moments of the day. We also sneaked away during the break and took couple portraits in Kirkdale Abbey grounds for a really atmospheric and fun afternoon.
One thing I really loved about Saima was her relaxed nature and poise. She may well have been one of the easiest brides to photograph ever! Kris was a dream as well- super sweet, completely in love with Saima and an artistic spirit as a video graphic designer. Together they will be unstoppable.
My good friend Julie Kim also helped me out by doing the boys’s photos in the moprning and running a photobooth to entertain the guests during the break and give them a really special keepsake from the wedding.
Here are some of the highlights of the day which I partcularly loved:
no rain- just an umbrella as a prop, the lucky devils!
