Rough sea at Teignmouth seafront this morning at sunrise

After waking up at 5am this morning for no reason at all, I looked out the window and saw there were stars in the sky. I thought that seeing as there were no clouds I would head over to Teignmouth. I knew the high tide was coinciding with sunrise, plus the stormy winds would likely mean rough waves.

Lots of dog walkers and runners this morning. Thankfully though, they all managed to dodge the crashing waves and not a single person got wet… including me, yay! 🙂

For waves, I always try to keep my exposure time around half a second. I love the look at that shutter speed, plus it makes photos just slightly different to the normal snap-shot photos you’d see on a phone. I will play with shutter speed and ISO to keep it at half a second for as long as possible.

My settings started off at F4, 0.5 Sec, ISO 600 and, as the sun rose, ended at F16, 0.5sec, ISO 100. For the palm tree photo, it was F11, 1/125 ISO 100.

Happy Anniversary Lauren and Phillip

This month a year ago Lauren and Phillip were married at the Hayloft at Cockington court in Torquay, Devon. I would like to wish them a very happy Anniversary!

If you’re looking for a wedding towards the end of this year or anytime next year, please book soon. It is going to be a very busy wedding session!

An amazing day photographing a same sex Wedding in Exeter, Devon

I was very excited to be a wedding photographer at a same sex wedding. I loved every minute of it, what an amazing day it was. We instantly connected so those candid photos just kept on flowing all through the day.

I really do want to congratulate Sharon and Louise and their wedding at Froginwell Vineyard in Exeter, Devon on the 4th May 2019. It was a fantastic day for everyone!

We covered from ceremony to first dance. The weather was clear and mostly warm. The staff at Froginwell were fantastic to everyone, including me, so thank you Froginwell staff! The travel from Paignton to Exeter was really easy and we arrived nice and early which always enables us to capture the detail shots before everyone else starts to arrive.

The weather was so nice the ceremony was held outside. With the vineyard behind, the setting was lovely.

The entertainment outside was performed by the wonderful Liberty Sisters who performed brilliantly all afternoon.

Here is a small selection of images from the wedding day. For higher quality images please see my facebook page.
