It's been a busy two or three months leading to a very delayed 'Best of 2017'. I almost considered leaving it until 2018 but there were so many lovely moments in the last year that I thought it was worth popping them up even if they are a little late. Thank you to all those who have appeared through the lens of the de la Mare camera this year!
Starting with a stunning Couple's shoot for Simon and Bethany in January, following their London wedding, this year's weddings have been a joy! There's a couple in here too of Tom and Hannah's stunning Graphistudio album that arrived this year. Congratulations one and all.
Floral and Fauna...
It's hard categorising photos - a few in here could fit into the lovely people section, just they aren't people! Getting out and about or shooting pets in the studio were some of the highlights of 2017, with another successful Pet Week in Angel Square and lots of opportunities for capturing nature.
Businesses and Organisations...
It's been such a pleasure to work with lots of different local businesses and organisations again this year including the beautiful work of mj cabinetmakers, a stunning fashion collection, work for the wonderful Ullswater Community College (including a little bit of Joey Essex) and Eden Boutique and a project for Hospice at Home's 20th anniversary including a visit from The Duchess of Gloucester. If you don't know about Hospice at Home, please check out their website - it's a wonderful charity.
Sessions with some lovely people...
Really, it's all about people. Thank you to all of these people who spent a little portion of their 2017 with me as we preserved a few memories together.
Over the summer, I had a couple of visits 'home' to Guernsey - partly thanks to Chris and Larissa's wedding! It was an opportunity to catch up with family and friends as well as spend time in one of the most lovely places in the world. I am biased, I know. Part of the trip was spent camping on Herm Island and for that I didn't have my 'big' camera, just my Nokia Lumia, but those photos are for another post! Here are a few from my grandparents garden. They are avid gardeners and grow a large variety of vegetables. I seemed drawn to the fronds and vines again, so here they are... Hope you enjoy them!
As promised! Chris and Larissa's Wedding Film (you can catch their wedding photos here), such a lovely day.
I put up a sneak peak of this wedding last month with a few flower photos (http://bit.ly/1msUU88 for those interested!) but here are some from the 'day proper'. It was such a beautiful and relaxed day - smiles, sun and sand! Herm Island is a perfect place for a wedding in the sun and everyone fitted in St Tugual's Chapel. Congratulations to the lovely couple! I'll blog their Wedding Film in a couple of days! Chris and Larissa's family and friends can view the whole wedding gallery in the Client Area of the website.
