Abseiling the Spinnaker Tower

© 2017 Richard Danter

As you may know, Lorna works for a local charity, Y Services, which works with young people in the area. Charities are always looking to get donations to help them provide the support and facilities needed.

What better way to raise some funds than with a sponsored event which also happens to be something you have always wanted to do anyway? So here is Lorna, looking rather small as she abseils down the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth.

She raised over £500 for Y Services and wanted to say a big Thank You! to everyone who sponsored her.

Take care,

Rich

Family outing to the Natural History Museum of Wales in St Fagans. Not been there for a few years so it was really good to go back and look around again. Only problem is that it’s pretty much impossible to see everything in one day so we’re going to have to go back again soon! If you are ever near Cardiff then I highly recommend you pay a visit.

Coral and Darryl – Portsmouth Wedding Photography

Having only recently photographed Coral and Darryl for their engagement session I was really looking forward to the big day.

For all the bravado, Darryl seemed much more nervous than Coral. She was excited though and they both had a wonderful day with all their friends and family around them.

This photo of Coral outside the church is one of my favourites. Not where you would expect to find a bright red garage door but there it is and with perfect light for a portrait.

Such a lovely couple and a perfect wedding day.

Coral and Darryl – A Southsea Engagement

© 2017 Richard Danter

Loads of fun photographing this lovely couple in Southsea last week. We met just outside the Pyramids and had a wander around the rock gardens and along the sea front.

I think it is fairly safe to say that Darryl was quite comfortable in front of the camera, and whilst Coral was a little more nervous to begin with it didn’t take her long to get in to the swing of things and have some fun.

There are a couple of months to go until the big day, but I am really looking forward to it. I am sure it will be a fantastic day with lots of laughter.

Heather and Tom – Hampshire Engagement Photography

Heather and Tom decided to head out into the countryside for their engagement session. Lovely, natural surroundings somewhere along the border between Hampshire and West Sussex.

I don’t think Heather will mind me saying that she was terribly nervous to begin with, but keeping it relaxed and taking our time she soon got into it. By the end she was really enjoying the session and I think that it will really help when it comes to the big day.

I am looking forward to their wedding day, which should be something a little different… check back in December to see what happens!

Nikki and Dave – Christchurch Wedding Photography

After having a grey day for the engagement session I knew Nikki and Dave would be fine whatever the weather on their wedding day. As it turned out, they had a bit of everything, sun and showers, clouds and a breeze, but it was still a perfect day.

Not the best weather for an engagement session at the beach, but nothing was going to stop Nikki and Dave having a bit of fun and adding some colour to a grey day.

Just had to recreate the proposal, though the real thing was far away on a hot and sunny beach.

Loads of fun, and I am sure the wedding will be too!

Take care,

Amy – Family Photography

Had a family outing to Mottisfont recently and took the opportunity to photograph my daughter, Amy.

Funny how she is fine having her photograph taken with anyone but her dad! But that is quite common, and why it’s always a good idea to get a professional to photograph your children.

Fortunately I had bribery on my side and I wasn’t asking her to pose, I wanted more natural photos so I let her do what she wanted to do with just a couple of hints and suggestions.

I love the results and, even more importantly, so does she. 🙂

Opal – Basingstoke Portrait Photography

Opal is an aspiring model from Basingstoke. With few images in her portfolio, and being very new to standing in front of a lens, we decided to start with a simple portrait shoot in the park.

The memorial park in Basingstoke has quite a variety of locations to use. It would be a shame not to take advantage of everything it has to offer, but time limited us to just a small area. Which gives us lots of other options if we should do another session in the future.

Wasn’t long ago I photographed the engagement session with Tina and Mike. That was fun and I figured the wedding would be too – and it certainly was! It was one of those occasions where nothing could spoil the day.

The venue was The Langstone Hotel, with it’s beautiful views over the harbour.
