Emilia's Winter Portrait Experience - Bramford, Suffolk

storyboard193

It was my first official shoot of 2012 and turned out to be a real treat.  I had never ventured down to Bramford in Suffolk for a shoot before, but I'll be sure to return.  The area we used along the river was just beautiful and although a little chilly we had amazing golden light that just streamed through the woodland area nearby. My client on this day was Emilia, an amazing actress on the brink of graduation in London and looking forward to undoubted success.  We chatted and I got to know Emilia as we strolled along this gorgeous setting, which set us up well for the shoot where we created some beautiful golden portraits which really complimented Emilia's sunny personality.

Here are some of the images created on the day, Enjoy! RD

The Caldwell family's Winter Portrait Experience - Ipswich, Suffolk

storyboard182

I had the pleasure just after Christmas to hang out with the Caldwell family from Ipswich for their portrait experience.  The portrait experience was purchased as a birthday present for middle daughter Kate, to get some really cool, fun images of her and her sisters.  We set out in and around where the family lives in central Ipswich and got to know each other a little better, before ending up in Christchurch Park.  It was such a fun shoot and we got some really cool images of the girls. Here is small collection of the images captured on the day.  Enjoy! RD

Spotlight on...Young Suffolk Women in Business - Aldeburgh Vintage Wedding Vendors

34343

Twitter has really revolutionised the wedding industry, allowing particulary vendors, to communicate, refer and interact online and is often the beginning of many fabulous relationships.  Well, this was exactly the case for me after replying to a 'tweet' for a vendor looking for a Suffolk wedding photographer to shoot a vintage styled shoot.  A few emails later and I was soon travelling to beautiful Aldeburgh in Suffolk to meet some amazing up and coming business women, heavily focussed on wowing the local (and national) wedding industry. We had a top day, shoooting the ladies from Crumb! Bespoke Suffolk Cakes, Kenton Hall Estate, Bluebird Vintage & Cragg Sisters Tea Room in a variety of different locations and all self styled.  Check out the images below, don't they all look amazing?!

Rachel's Location Portrait Shoot - The Salthouse Harbour Hotel, Ipswich, Suffolk

RDPHOTO-14

The stunning Salthouse Harbour Hotel in Ipswich was our location for Rachel's location portrait shoot.  Our goal was to get some striking, fashion-inspired images of Rachel to use for her PR in a number of forthcoming opportunities as well as for her personal branding on her website. After talking though the clothing and the look we were going for, we set about creating some really cool images using the exquisite backdrop of one of the penthouse suites overlooking the Ipswich Waterfront.

A big thanks to both the guys at The Salthouse Harbour Hotel & Viking Mariners for the use of their fantastic yachts. RD

Stuart + James {Married} - All Manor of Events, Henley, Suffolk

I was so pleased when I was asked to photograph Stuart & James' Civil Partnership.  You may remember that a couple of months before we had such great fun on the beach for their engagement shoot and so I just couldn't wait for the big day to arrive. The guys had chosen the fantastic 'All Manor of Events' in Henley, Suffolk and when the day did arrive, we were greeted by some fantastic weather.  Also at this time of year (September) all the trees had started to turn some amazing rich colours which really make for some stunning backdrops. Friends and family had come far and wide to share this special day with the guys and the celebrations went on well into the night with some fantastic dance floor action (which I love to get right in the middle of with my camera!).  Such great memories.

I had an amazing time guys, thank you for allowing me to capture such a perfect day, RD

Lisa + Daryl {Married} - All Manor of Events, Henley, Suffolk

RDPHOTO -  00143_mini

You may remember a couple of months ago I posted  Lisa & Daryl's Engagement Shoot down at the Ipswich Waterfront.  Well the time certainly flew and before I knew it the big day had finally arrived.  The guys had chosen 'All Manor of Events' as their wedding venue.  Set in stunning rural grounds, the venue, based at Manor Farm is a really cool venue and where Tanja & I also chose to get married back in 2009. It was a really magnificent day and with the weather on our side, we managed to get a beautiful set of images that really captured the essence of the day.  Lisa & Daryl really do have a wonderful set of friends and family and it was clear from listening to the heartfelt sentiments of the speeches that they'll enjoy a long and very happy life together.

It really was a blessing to capture your big day guys, all the very best of wished for your future, RD

Lily's Portrait Experience at Ipswich Waterfront - Suffolk Portrait Photographer

RDPHOTO-10_mini

I had the pleasure recently of photographing Lily for some relaxed, fashion-inspired portrait shots which were to celebrate her recent birthday. After discussing the wardrobe for the session, we headed down to The Waterfront, in the heart of Ipswich and then on to a nearby park.  This gave us two locations that really complimented Lily's choice of clothing and the style of images we wanted to achieve.

It was great fun and you can see some of the images from the session below.  If you are celebrating a birthday soon, what better way to mark it than booking in a portrait experience with Ross Dean Photography.  I invite you to get in touch with me and together we'll capture some images you'll treasure forever.
