Its been slightly more then a week. I’m going to rename this feature I think. Something that reflects the timing properly. Not photo of the week any more. So for the last time its called
Photo of the week LVXI
I love this photo. I love the sense of theatre and the way the photo harks back to the 1940’s film noir genre of cinema. I think there is a real sense of menace too. Thats why I’ve picked this for my (soon to be renamed series) photo of the week. At the end of the day though it doesn’t just matter what I think. Leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.
If you’d like to have a chat about my photography my phone number is 07949 099978 or if its easier drop me an email and we’ll arrange a good time to meet for a coffee
Although it doesn’t feel particularly spring today its rapidly heading towards my favourite time of year. So in anticipation of that, this weeks photo has a fantastic spring feel.
Photo of the week LXV
I love this photo. Its so very fresh and spring like. Everything about it say spring time, the sunshine and to my mind the bluebells just add an extra something to the spring feel of the shoot. To my mind its certainly evocative.
What you think matters far more then my thoughts. I’ve said why I love this photo. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

A while ago, a couple of years ago if I’m being honest, I wrote this post. All about how strange it is the most photographed generation ever is also the generation who will have no photos at all to view. Thats simply because we don’t print them. It brings a bit of a tight lipped grin to know that almost all or even all of what create today will be lost tomorrow. The irony isn’t lost but at the same time it makes me incredibly sad.
In the time Boy Meets Girl Photography has existed I’ve seen my delivery change from prints and albums, to electronic photos, first on CD & DVD and over then via a USB stick. My last two computers haven’t even had an optical drive and looking to the future I’m prepared to bet we’ll see then end of USB ports as standard in the next 5 years. Already I’m thinking about electronic delivery. I know I spend a great deal of effort and thought making sure that I can still read photos from every wedding I’ve ever photographed. Without that effort it would be surprisingly easy to go back after 5 or 6 years and find them unreadable.
I was thinking about why that might be. It strikes me that 150 years ago a person may have been photographed once in their lifetime. We’re photographed more times in a week then our grandparents were in their lifetimes. I do sometime think that has desensitised us to how much emotion a photograph can evoke.
And that kind of brings me to the point of my ramblings. If you’d like to be able to see your photos in the future or share them with your children and grandchildren then please print your photos. In five or ten years time don’t look at that USB stick and suddenly realise you can’t fit it into your computer and have no way of reading it.Your photographs are precious. I really believe that nothing comes close to evoking so many emotions and memories as a really good photograph, but print it don’t lose it.
With every package I supply there is always beautiful print ready photos. I always give details of printers I really recommend to. So, regardless of if you’d like a fantastic album from me,or simply to send your photos off to be printed. Please print them. At least a few of you favourites. I promise you’ll be very glad you did.

It seems like the weekly photos are slipping again so without anymore chatter its time for
Photo of the week LXIV
I love this photo. I adore the way all the elements combine to draw the viewer in to her face as she’s getting ready for her big day. I took this as she was getting ready for her wedding at Pembroke Lodge last summer, and it remains one of my favourite photos from last year.
But, as ever, it doesn’t matter nearly as much what I think as you do. Leave me a comment and let me know.

OK …. I thought something a little wintery for this week’s
Photo of the week LXIII
So I though of this photography from Lovekyn Chapel in Kingston over this winter. I love this photo. Its simple and elegant. Shows of a great couple in a fantastic surrounding too. I think it speaks very nicely for itself so I shall just allow it to be enjoyed. Leave me a comment though, let me know what you think.

I thought I’d share some photography from Ann and Mark’s fantastic, epic winter wedding around Twickenham, Kew, Wimbledon, and the Thames as well. A real feast of West London wedding photography then.
I joined Ann and the girls at the Rose and Crown on Wimbledon High Street for lots of fantastic getting ready photographs. Before I talk about the photography though I have to mention about just how warm, friendly and welcoming everybody was. It set the tone for the day. That friendliness, coupled with the stunning rooms in the Rose and Crown lead to some fantastic photos through the day. There’s more then a few here I’m so very proud of.
From the Rose and Crown I joined Mark and the boys at the fantastic York House in Twickenham for a few photos before their ceremony in the beautiful Winter Gardens there. The Winter Gardens are light, airy and Ann and Mark’s wedding seemed just perfect there. Even on a cold winter afternoon it felt nothing shy of perfect. Have a look for the photos of their wedding ceremony. They’re fantastic and they show off just what a great venue the Winter Gardens are.
From York House we headed off down (or is it up, I can never work it out) the Thames from Twickenham to Kew. On a really rather special boat. Complete with lots of music and a fair amount of champagne to really get things going. The weather was kind and we got some fantastic photos on the boat as we headed along the river.
Their evening reception was held at the London Museum of Water and Steam in Kew for a lovely warm evening reception on what felt a very cold evening. The Museum of Water and Steam certainly made for a reception with a slightly different feel. All that machinery warmed a cold winters evening and bought back some boyhood longings as well ;). As I left it looked like a throughly fantastic evening was developing. Just as it should be.
There – I told you it was epic. Enjoy the photos. Isn’t that dress wonderful? I’d love to hear what you think. Please leave a comment and let me know.

We’re in the depths of January. Its been nothing but cold and wet so I figured a photo with a little warmth in it for this weeks
Photo of the week LXII
O love this photo. I think it really brings the warmth we had at the end of last summer. The colours came through and look stunning. There really is no better place in London the Wimbledon Common for some superb, natural, outdoor portraits. You can see how fantastic the results are here. But, let me know what you think. Leave me a comment.

It’s 2016 already. How did that happen? Happy New Year. I hope you manage to keep your resolutions longer then I manage mine. That I can say that at this time on January 1st speaks volumes I think.
Anyway, I thought it an opportune moment to share some of my favourite photos from the last year. It seems every year I’m so very lucky to meet and work with some utterly fantastic couples and their guests. I’ve photographed weddings at some wonderful venues during 2015. Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park , York House in Twickenham and the Lensbury Club, where just before the Rugby World Cup we had the pleasure of meeting the Tonga team (they were big lads) and some superb venues around London and the South East of England.
More important then the locations has, as ever, been the marvellous clients and their guests. I’m sure each and every one of their personalities shines through in the photographs. To blow my own trumpet a little I think you can really see the benefits of my storytelling approach and the stunning results being as unobtrusive as I can and blending in with your guests brings to your wedding photography.
As well as London wedding photography there are a fair few portraits from locations around London,Wimbledon Common always seems to figure in a lot of them
On top of all that I’ve also included a few personal photos. From places like Turkey, Rome and even Richmond Park. I do hope you enjoy looking at them. I had a hell of a time getting them down to a sensible number but enjoyed every moment of doing so. Why not leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Photo of the week LXI
I love this photo. Taken at Temple Church earlier in the summer, its simple elegance in a brilliant location speaks volumes to me. I know its a simple explanation but I don’t think more is needed. Leave me a comment though. Let me know what you think, leave me a comment.

Jill and John got married. At the gorgeous York House in Twickenham. I seem to have been in the Loggia Room there an awful lot lately. Its great, but enough asides about me. This post is about their day. Jill and John had one of those small, very personal ceremonies that I really enjoy and somehow feel as though an awful lot of thought has gone into.
Jill and John were married in the Loggia Room at York House before heading into the wonderful gardens by the river there with their closest friends and families for some wonderful photographs. I always love the Oceanids statues in them. They always make for some utterly wonderful photography backgrounds.
As I left they were all heading to a wonderful meal at the very wonderful Petersham Hotel. I’m sure it must have been utterly wonderful and a superb way to start married life. I wish them all the best.
Enjoy the photos.
