Wedding photography at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge

I was fortunate to be asked to help second shoot a beautiful wedding at the end of last summer in Cambridge. The ceremony took place in Great St Mary’s Church, just a short walk away from where the reception would be held in the awe-inspiring surroundings of Corpus Christi College. From beginning to end, the thought that had been put into the day was evident in all the little details – from the beautiful red rose arrangements for the church and the bouquets (which had been made by the groom’s mother) to the little fans left out on the table at the reception in case guests were overcome with heat, to the personalised little bottles of port left out on the tables for guests. I shot the wedding with Becky Kerr of www.beckerphotography.co.uk and loved every minute of it, from the bridal party’s walk through the streets of Cambridge through tourists and Saturday shoppers to the beautiful reception venue, parts of which resembled something from a Harry Potter novel with beautiful vaulted ceilings, stained glass and candelabras.

Here are just a few of my favourite shots to sum up the beautiful day. Congratulations again to the happy couple..

A happy Chelsea Registry Office wedding

Despite the unseasonal cold weather, this lovely wedding in Chelsea was full of joy and laughter. After the ceremony at Chelsea Registry Office and the obligatory photos on the iconic steps, the whole wedding party made their way back to the reception, which was in a beautiful spot by the river in Putney, by double decker bus.

The sun came out! – a lovely ceremony at Kingston Registry Office

After weeks of rain and storms, the day for this lovely civil ceremony at Kingston Registry Office dawned bright and clear so we were able to get some photos after the ceremony in the lovely garden at the back. Thankfully the weather remained dry while the happy couple and their family and friends went out for a celebratory lunch by the river in Kingston upon Thames. Here are a few favourite photos from the day.

Lovely summer wedding at The Mill at Elstead, Godalming

The leafy surroundings of The Mill at Elstead in Godalming were the setting for this laidback summer wedding with a steam punk feel. With stunning lime green and crimson flowers by Dawn Jennings Floristry (www.dawnjennings.co.uk) and a very special canine guest complete with tuxedo, it made for a very happy and colourful afternoon.

Is one of your resolutions for 2019 to finally get round to updating your headshot? Or maybe you have resolved to apply for a new job and need to update your profile pic. If so, I can help.

I will be running half-hour headshot sessions on Sunday 27 January at 10am; 11am; 12 noon; 2pm and 3pm. If you can’t make that day, the special price of £75* will apply until 1 March so please get in touch to arrange another date. (Dates in red are now booked).

This is the perfect opportunity for you to get some up-to-date headshots to use for your LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter profiles.

You might hate having your photo taken. I understand that because I do too. But with 9 years’ experience of taking headshot photos, I can quickly put you at ease so that you relax in front of the camera and we get some great shots. Throughout the session we will review the photos so that we can adjust poses accordingly and you can feel confident in the knowledge that you look good in front of the camera.

How much is a headshot session?

*From 1 March 2019, headshot sessions will cost £95 but until then you can still book at the old price of £75. This includes:

  • A 30-minute photo shoot in my studio in Surbiton  (this is plenty of time for a change of top or jacket on/jacket off so that you have some variety in your photos)
  • A What to Expect guide with tips on what to wear
  • At least 15 images to choose from in a secure online gallery that will be live for 7 days
  • Three digital images in colour and black and white in high res format and cropped to a square for Facebook and LinkedIn
  • Additional digital images can be purchased at a cost of £15 each.

How do I book?

Please email me at jo@sweetheartstudio.co.uk or phone me on 07711 087636. I will then send you a What to Expect guide and an invoice for a shoot deposit to reserve your slot.

Here are some kind words from previous headshot customers:

‘I usually hate having my photograph taken but Jo’s warm and humorous approach set me completely at ease and she took some fantastic headshots.  She gave great advice on how to get the professional but approachable look I was after, and took the time to review the shots as we went along to ensure I was happy.  I’m absolutely delighted with the results!’

‘I contacted Jo for a professional headshot session as I needed some photos for an award nomination and my LinkedIn profile at short notice. Jo was extremely professional and put me at ease immediately during the session. She was also very patient with multliple outfit changes and made sure my hair/clothing was well arranged in all shots, sharing feedback on how to get the best photo throughout. After the session, Jo turned the photos around quickly including some subtle edits. I am delighted with the headshots I received and thought Jo’s package was excellent value for money compared to other options I looked into. I would highly recommend Jo.’
