So in April I got the chance to second shoot for my good friend and wedding photographer extraordinaire Andrea Ellison Photography. I was nervous. I've done weddings on my own but never as a second shooter. I was very conscious of getting in Andrea's way and generally cramping her style!
Anyway I needn't have worried because it was a fantastic day. The happy couple, Gill & Steve, and their wonderful friends and family were all brilliant and Andrea, thank you again, I learned so much and who better to teach me than the best. I had been dying to use my chalkboard so I pestered Andrea to see if she would mind me bringing it... she didn't. Turned out Gill & Steve had a wee secret! So we found a hidden spot in the gardens and got a couple of cheeky shots. :)
When Gill first told us that she was pregnant and that Steve would be announcing it to everyone in his speech, both Andrea and I filled up.... so you can imagine what we were like when he told all their family and friends. Not a dry eye in the house. It was just perfect. So happy for you - congratulations again! (Andrea - can I second shoot the bubba's newborn photos too?!!)
These are some of my favourites from the day. Apologies for the random sizes, I've done this quickly as I know Gill & Steve are dying to see more photos of their special day!
That's Andrea with the happy couple and her trusty (and rather beautiful) camera bag which I sadly was unable to swipe.... next time... I'll get you my pretty.
