I am pre writing this post as I have just received an email from the fabulous Lou from Whimsical Wonderland Weddings who is going to be featuring my 'couples shoot' with Edd and Amy!
Just for those of you that don't know much about the wedding blog world, there are quite a lot of wedding blogs (particularly in the US) that feature different designers, vendors, photographers, and real life weddings to act as inspiration for brides to be and for those that are looking for something a little bit different for their day. There are not that many in the UK, but Whimsical Wonderland Weddings is one of the best (certainly in my eyes) despite it still being young (just over a year old!), and as is quite common, was started by Lou when she was looking for inspiration for her own wedding.
How do I know all this you might ask? Well..... wedding photography blogs were some of the first photography blogs that I found when I was desperately searching for inspiration 2 years ago, and slowly I have become more and more enveloped into the online wedding world. I love it. I have no hopes of getting married any time soon (I promise!) but the different d.i.y projects and amazing photographers keep me going back day after day. Following these blogs is what got me thinking that I wanted to try shooting people more often. I have seen how a select few british women have gone about setting up their own photography businesses, and how they get to work with happy, creative people every day. What more could I ask for!? So that's why I decided to give this thing a go. And that is why I asked Edd and Amy to do my first 'couples shoot' with me.
So despite it not being a more commonly blogged 'engagement shoot', I thought "What the hell!?" I'll give it a go, see if anyone likes my stuff enough to feature it on their wedding blog. And lucky for me they have! Lou emailed me back in record time and said that she would love to feature the shoot- and so, on the shoot with Edd and Amy will be featured on the gorgeous Whimsical Wonderland Weddings! I am so excited about this, as I absolutely love this site, and am constantly finding streams of inspiration on here. It doens't matter if your not getting married- check out this blog, and be inspired!
Plus it also means that lucky me gets to proudly wear this yummy badge!
Keep an eye out for it- It will go up in the next couple of weeks!
P.S more news to come soon, but the shoot with Kerensa and her gorgeous little girls might also soon be featured on another blog! Yippee!
