Film Friday | Seasons change & studio update


(Above image captured on my trusty Holga)

You may have noticed things have been a bit quiet on the old blog front lately. I’ve really enjoyed a couple of months downtime during the winter months, which has allowed me to recharge and get myself ready for the coming wedding season. Downing digital tools, I’ve been playing a lot with film and even exposing on tin plates.  Last month saw my first wedding of the year, with the bride rocking a thirties femme fatale look to perfection. It was a wonderful wedding and I’m excited to show you the pictures this month as soon as the lovely couple are home from their honeymoon, skiing in Utah (green with envy!).

I have also been working hard on the soon-to-be-completed studio. I’ve loved every minute of transforming this space and I can’t wait to share pictures. It’s going to be somewhere I can work on a day-to-day basis, a dedicated space to meet with clients, as well as including a darkroom where I can indulge my creative side. I’ve spent the last few months trawling design blogs and tearing pages from magazines, and driven Greg mad with a long to-do list of tasks. It’s a wonderful thing having a handy-man husband.

The above image was captured as the autumn changed into winter. I’m so happy that my garden is now showing signs of spring. Sunshine is here.

Have a wonderful weekend, all!

  • Wishing you an amazing wedding season! I think the studio is a fantastic idea and I can't wait to see the photos! We are very lucky with our helpful husbands aren't we?! x

    I look forward to seeing the studio space, and the work you produce in your darkroom... prepare yourself for a lot less sleep. It is addictive!

    Exciting times ahead Jodie. Have to admit I'm a tad jealous of your darkroom. Wish I had the space/time/money to get one setup myself. In the meantime I will live vicariously through you and your darkroom... Best of luck with the upcoming wedding season.

  • sounds wonderful, I love the enthusiasm you have for photography and life, it is very infectious :)
