Now it’s getting warmer outside and we have officially entered British Summer Time, we thought it would be nice to take a look back at some of the brilliant winter shoots we had last season. Many people put off having their third Cherubs shoot between November and February whilst they wait for better weather, but we think this is a brilliant time for a location shoot! We get great results in all seasons, but the benefit of a winter shoot is the beautiful soft lighting it gives.We find that kids don’t tend to mind about the weather as long as they are wrapped up warm and running around having lots of fun. It also gives Mums a chance to buy really cute winter outfits! Here’s some of our winter favourites:
We pride ourselves on always going the extra mile for our clients in all areas, especially when it comes to their wedding. Lou and Ben had specifically styled their wedding to have a vintage theme and wanted to tie their pre wedding shoot into this same style. Between us we wracked our brains and came up with attending a travelling vintage fair in Reading one Sunday. The couple were really into this idea as it also meant they could continue shopping for props for their wedding.
We had loads of fun and it was a great way to relax the couple encouraging them to try on different props. The only trouble we had was keeping Lou’s attention on the photo shoot and not on the shopping!
After we had finished at the fair we made our way over to the Forbury Gardens to continue the shoot, complete with purchases. The gardens really complemented the style we were going for and the bandstand looked brilliant with what Ben and Lou were wearing. They had also just bought a great vintage suitcase which made a great prop to the outdoor photos.
Together with the couples brilliant styling, excellent purchases and a few vintage enhancements by us, we got a fantastic set of photos. Here are some of our favourites…
