An impromptu shoot for Suffolk Wedding Planner / Caroline Gould

Wedding Planners Suffolk - Caroline Gould - rossdeanphotography.com

You know, sometimes its those last minute shoots with very little prep and planning that end up looking great.  This was such a shoot when my good friend and Suffolk wedding planner Caroline Gould asked me to take some new promo shots for her forthcoming re-brand and for use in various publications that she would soon be writing articles for. We headed down to central Ipswich for a coffe at Arlingtons Brasserie, one of our favourite places and venue to the monthly wedding network events that we run.  Over drinks Caroline explained that she needed some new headshots which captured 'her' and some other shots that kind of explained what she did without being too cheesy.

So after an hour or so shooting in and around the coffee house, this is what we achieved.  I was really pleased with the outcome, as someone that knows Caroline well, I think the portraits capture her bubbly, friendly persona beautifully.

A Fun Norfolk Coastline Engagement in Blakeney / Claire + Mark

blakeney wedding engagement shoot - norfolk - rossdeanphotography.com

Something I especially love about my job is that I get a chance to experience new places tucked away in corners of the country that I haven't visited before.   So when Claire & Mark told me that they had decided to choose Blakeney in Norfolk as the location for their engagement shoot I was intrigued and excited to experience this small village they obviously have such a close affection for. Blakeney itself is a gorgeous coastal village on the North Norfolk coast which dates back to medieval times when it was once a bustling commercial port.  Today, it's a stunning part of Norfolk offering long walks along the coastline and an array of eateries and small shops, making it a very popular tourist destination.

The village is particularly dear to Claire and Mark because they often spend new year down there tucked up in a gorgeous little cottage, enjoying the experience with good friends and good food.  After a spot of lunch, we headed down to the shore, along the promenade and throughout the village streets to capture their engagement images.  I'm very blessed to do what I do and that I get to work with something truly lovely people.  Claire and Mark are no exception and being around them for the afternoon, it was evident how perfect they are for one another, with their playful affection  shining through in their finished images.

I'm really excited to be shooting their wedding this July at Woodhall Manor, near Woodbridge.  Here are a collection of images from the day.
