Wedding Invites – Chris Monaghan-Doyle Photography

A few weeks ago I took some pictures of the wedding invites of a forthcoming wedding I am photographing. The cards were designed and made by my good friend Jo Purvis. I thought I would shoot the cards on an old pear crate as it seemed to suit their vintage style perfectly!Wedding_Invite_Photo_Shoot_Ingleby_Barwick_Yarm_Wedding_mdphoto

Fun in Hardwick Park – mdphoto

Last week I had a bit of fun in Hardwick Park trying to take some pictures of us all as a family. The results were a little hit and miss and involved a lot of running about after I set the timer on the camera, keeping everyone in focus and positioned while I ran back to join them proved to be tricky. However, everyone was very patient, especially the little fella, despite the freezing cold. I was quite pleased with the results and it gave me a chance to try out some new post-processing techniques. Hardwick Park Family Photo Hardwick Park Family Photo Hardwick Park Family Photo

Engagement photo shoot – Stowe Gardens Landscape Park – mdphoto

Finally found the time to upload some images from my recent engagement shoot with Michael and Colleen.

The photo shoot was part of an Aspire training course with Kate Hopewell-Smith, on the course I picked up loads of tips on posing and creating beautiful lifestyle images - I cant wait to put it into practice!


Wedding car photoshoot – Crathorne and Rockliffe Hall – mdphoto

We got some fantastic weather for the photoshoot of today's lovely wedding car. I used the Photographer's Ephemeris to pick Crathorne as a location as the direction of light this morning was ideal. In order to make the shot I first exposed for the ambient then used a twin flash setup to light the car.

Hopefully next time I'm photographing Crathorne or Rockliffe Hall I'll have some light like this! Crathorne Wedding Car Photo
