The Dam 2

As promised, a quick rip through the riot of colour and strangeness which is four and a half hours in Amsterdam. In't Amsterdam brilliant!!?!

The Dam

Just back from a trip to "The Dam" with the hubby. DFDS excelled themselves with a Commodore De Luxe upgrade (eventually) and some R and R followed. Some interesting photo opportunities presented themselves in Amsterdam...watch this space...but till then,and until my stomach settles after the North Sea presented a Force 5-7 on the return, here's one of my favourite views of South Shields Pier and Lighthouse.

Anne and Davey - 22nd August.

Saturday in South Shields began in a cloudy,wet sort of way, but soon the sun burst through, which was just as well, as it was the wedding of Anne and Davey at St Peter and St Paul RC Church. We were pleased to be asked to attend as the couple's photographers and Anne and her Mam's make-up artist. We'd like to say thank you to Anne and Davey and their lovely families for having us and making us welcome, and we hope you like this very small preview of your wedding photos.

Today I had the pleasure of assisting Jamie at the preshoot of Katie and Jamie. We met this lovely couple and their equally lovely family and best man Craig at the White Swan Hotel in Alnwick, to try out some shots and poses for their wedding in the famous Olympic Room of the hotel later in the year. We practised couple shots, group shots and the grand entrance,as well as some model poses for Katie, whose beautiful red hair looked stunning against a conveniently placed red door,and it's looking good for some fabulous shots on the big day. I'm sure you'll agree!
