I met Karisha and Michael in Liverpool 1 on a cloudy Sunday. Their wedding day is coming closer and closer so I thought I'd show you some of the images from our little session by Liver Building.
I have to say, this couple is born to be photographed. They are so natural that there was very little to say in terms of posing and directing them.
On this occasion, I wanted to achieve a cinematic feel so exposing the images was a bit different than usual but I think the results are really great.
I am not going to say more, just check the images yourself.
I can't wait to be a part of their special day x
Karisha & Michael.
On the 15th of October, I had a huge pleasure to be a part of the fantastic post-wedding celebration at Leverhulme Hotel, Port Sunlight. It was my first time when I photographed at this place and I have to say I was very impressed. A very warm welcome from the staff who operate the Leverhulme Hotel definitely helped us a lot to create such a nice, relaxing atmosphere.
Air, the Bride, was wearing a traditional Thai dress and looked stunning next to her not so bad looking husband, Matt. Everyone who participated at this venue felt relaxed and happy. Entertained by some fantastic memories of Air and Matt's wedding, guests could feel the atmosphere of their actual wedding, which took place in Bangkok.
Not long time ago I was asked by Rebecca, brilliant organiser of the Graduation Ball 2016, to be their photographer. I have to admit I have no experience in this kind of events but I love challenges and not knowing what to expect I jumped into the task. And it was soooo much fun. Girls were brilliant. Superbly dressed, full of positive energy and ready to pose at any time. Boys were not bad either :) Over all it was a fantastic graduation ball. Who knows maybe one day Rebecca will organise something like that again.
I wish all of the graduates all the best on their way to the new chosen carrier. With lots of love, Krys.
Below here are some images from that [...]
This was my first time I’d shot a Pimhill Barn at Lea Hall. I was greeted by the bunch of relaxed cows and the beautiful views which spread in front of this gorgeous place. Quick look at the Pimhill Barn was enough for me to know that it's going to be one of the most memorable events. And it was indeed. There was so much laughter, love and happiness around this wedding. Dad crying seeing his daughter the last time before she became the wife. Joe kissing his mum before he became the husband. So much energy and lots of happy happy memories. I am not going to give you all the details. Just see the images and feel how great it was :)
Eileen & Tom had a West Tower Wedding in the beautiful surroundings of Lancashire countryside. They’re an awesome couple, the kind you meet and feel like you’ve been friends with for years. They have a brilliant sense of humour, they're down to earth, kind and have an amazing chemistry together. I really liked how they planned every detail of the day - they didn’t take themselves too seriously and were ready to have fun and just enjoy the day. To say it was a pleasure to be part of their day is an understatement. Congratulations, Eileen and Tom! You guys rock! Thanks for letting me be part of your day. Here are some highlights...
For a long time I wanted to share this simple idea. I have to say it is not something I invented - it was probably created long long time ago by some very creative people. I call it hole in the reflector.
Thinking how to simplify best light solution for portraits photography, especially head shots, I came across this simple idea of cutting the rectangle in my big 5 in 1 reflector. There are hundreds of portrait light modifiers, I thought, but surely this is the simplest and the best lighting by far. At first, I was very sceptical about cutting the hole in the £10 reflector but after lots of thinking I went for it and never regretted it, even for one second. Yes, [...]
Not long time ago I photographed a wedding of Joanne and Carl. The wedding ceremony took place in one of the most prestigious places in Liverpool, St.Georges Hall. After the ceremony, we all moved to Cheshire Lines Function Suite. The day was a little cloudy and a bit cold but Joanne and Carl did a fabulous job shooting through the weather. All the guests were very supportive of my ideas and they even covered their eyes while the fresh wedded couple was going for their passionate kiss. We had so much fun!!! xxx
I wish both of them all the best on their journey of life and I hope you will enjoy a few favs from their wedding day.
I met Danielle and James in front of the mansion house in the Calderstone Park. It was getting late so we didn't want to waste our time and decided to shoot strait away. And, oh boy! we had such a lovely evening. We laughed and danced, and even strangled a bit :D It was a great pleasure to work with them. I can't wait to see what these two will do at their wedding. I am expecting lots of great smiley moments xx
