Shoot the Shoot, Jane Austen style...
There are so many photographs from the fabulous Jane Austen inspired shoot that we're undoubtedly going to have a few more blogs from all this material. The fact we have a lead photographer and a 'Shoot the Shoot' photographer automatically doubles the work of course!
We were very lucky to have the lovely Nicky Chadwick as our 'Shoot the Shoot' photographer for this event and wow, did she take some fantastic pictures. We love them!
The whole reasoning behind the 'Shoot the Shoot' is to allow people the opportunity to step behind the scenes with us and experience a little more of what we actually see. I love the relaxed and intimate feel that you get from these natural pictures.
Whilst we had two gorgeous models on the shoot, it's not difficult to see who the real star of the show was - Ben, an absolutely magnificent racehorse now used for eventing. I think everybody on the shoot fell in love with him, even just a little bit, and with these stunning pictures taken by Nicky, it's very easy to see why. Isn't he just beautiful - and doesn't he just know it?!
It's the details that often make the difference in a shoot, and we are renowned for being rather particular about those details! Hence, our bridal model for this shoot needed to be comfortable on a horse. Of course, being comfortable wasn't enough for us and we booked Anastasia, the current Miss York, who is not only beautiful, but an accomplished showjumper and horsewoman. As a result, we have gorgeous pictures with her in motion..... captured so well by Joe Dodsworth, lead photographer, and Nicky.
I hope you've enjoyed sharing a little bit of our world, thanks to the fabulously talented Nicky Chadwick. There's more to come from both photographers, so watch this space!
