Today I wanted to introduce you to a Yvette Craig Photography, a photographer from Kent, who loves to travel (and would love to travel to capture your wedding!) and who has a very classic, elegant and almost fine art style.
Who are you and what do you do?
I am Yvette Craig and I am a wedding and portrait photographer, and my aim is to capture you in a classical, timeless style.
Where are you based and what cities/countries are you available to for work in?
I am based in Kent, however I cover weddings anywhere in the World! In 2007 I photographed a wedding in Cuba, then in 2008 I was booked by a Canadian couple who could not find what they were looking for locally and therefore booked me to photograph their wedding in Stratford, Ontario and then this year (2010) I photographed a wedding in Dominican Republic. I have also just been booked to photograph a wedding in Brisbane Australia in 2011. I am happy to travel anywhere in the UK also and this year I have weddings in Nottinghamshire, Hampshire as well as the home counties.
Aleksandra’s shoot was inspired by the 1960′s modelling icon Twiggy. Don’t you just adore it!?
Nick & Hannah had a 3 day wedding at Christian retreat and conference centre Lee Abbey. The celebrations started with a day of fun activities for all their guests including archery, mountain boarding and zip wiring through the forest. Not only that, but all their guests were invited to wear fancy dress. That sure made for lots of laughs and some awesome photographs. The couple made an extra special effort, coming as Robin Hood and Maid Marion. Hannah had even worn her Grandmother’s own wedding dress in memory of her.
Alex & Lisa met 13 years and discovered a mutual love of music, books & film “We met nearly 13 years ago and the one thing that brought us together was music. He was wearing a t shirt of my favourite band and I fell for him” Lisa told me. “When we started dating we would wander around London checking out music shops, flicking through CD and vinyl to add to our collections and then head to a local cinema to catch a film. We probably spent more time in the records shops in Soho and a cinema than anywhere else. Many of those films we saw are now our favourite films and we probably know them inside out. I read books like there is no tomorrow and Alex is slowly coming round to that after having spent a lifetime reading comics and graphic novels. I bake cakes every weekend and while I enjoy making them, Alex enjoys eating them so when we are out I always take him to a cake shop so we can have a treat. I am also the official photographer in our relationship and I have the cameras and stacks of photo’s to prove it. Alex helped me buy my first SLR and he sat in front of the camera on many occasion to help me with college projects”
After reading this do you see anything more perfect for these two than the engagement session below? I love it!
How much do I love Hayley & Lucas’ adorable English countryside engagement shoot? Almost makes me proud to be British! The ever-lovely Lisa Devlin captured the couple in Sussex as they wanted a countryside location and with the yellow flowers, Hayley’s outfit and the glorious British summertime light (yes, it does happen sometimes) the scene couldn’t have been more perfect.
Over the last year or so props have been massively popular in weddings and photo shoots however Hayley & Lucas wanted to keep their shoot simple – just them. They did opt to bring some flowers though and Donal at Pollen came up with the spiky posy of zingy yellow chrysanthemums to contrast beautifully with their rural, natural setting.
This week’s Sunday Kind of Love goes to the one and only Charlotte Gamble of Restoration Cake. Not only did she make me the must gorgeous, beautiful and yummy cake to celebrate the launch of the new look Rock n Roll Bride but she is quite frankly an utter darling and deserves all our love and adoration! PLUS she has just had the most awesome pin-up inspired shoot with Rockabetty Studios and so I’m delighted to share these exclusive piccies with you today too! Who would have thought cake-making could be so glamorous and Rock n Roll!?
