Astrid – Chichester Portfolio Photography

© 2018 Richard Danter

Just one of a set of photos from a portfolio session with Astrid. Just getting started in the modelling industry, but already she is very comfortable in front of the camera.

We shot on location in Chichester, looking for interesting backgrounds for a range of styles from urban portraiture like this to more fashion-inspired shots.

She was lovely to work with and I for one think she can go far in the industry.

Take care,
Rich

 

 

Emma – Boudoir Photography Chichester

© 2018 Richard Danter

This is the lovely Emma in her boudoir for the day, a hotel in Chichester. Such a friendly lady, it was a pleasure to photograph her. She has a sense of humour a lot like mine, which resulted in fits of giggles and laughter all through the session.

Meeting lovely people like Emma is definitely one of the best perks of being a photographer.

I’m looking forward to seeing what 2018 brings. I will be focussing more on portraits and model portfolio sessions this year. This is hopefully just the first of many posts.

Take care,
Rich

Heather and Tom – Wedding Photography at the Park House Hotel

The Park House Hotel is a lovely little hotel to have a small, intimate wedding. That is exactly what Heather and Tom wanted, with their closest friends and family there to see them tie the knot.

Heather told me that having had the engagement session she was much more relaxed about the photos at the wedding. I think she probably had other things to be nervous about…!

She certainly seemed a lot more relaxed though!

This is a classic, the evening reception was with a Star Trek theme, each table being a different planet and lots of Trekkie Trivia for everyone to enjoy.

Pretty relaxed about the photos now. 🙂

PS – Have a wonderful Christmas!

Henry, looking very smart in his uniform!

Not much sign of nerves here! I think she was running to make sure Henry didn’t get away… 🙂

Got him!

The grounds at the South Downs Manor are great for wedding portraits.

Heather and Tom – Hampshire Engagement Photography

© 2016 Richard Danter

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!

Horses and a carriage, what a wonderful way to arrive for your wedding. Even better when the location is the magnificent Stansted House, near Chichester in West Sussex.

Lorna and I have been looking forward to this wedding as this is where we got married ourselves. Seems like such a long time ago now though.

Spent a lovely afternoon walking around the gardens at Stansted Park with Zoe and Gary. Their wedding is just a couple of weeks away and will be held in the fantastic House (just visible in the background here).

Really looking forward to this wedding since this is also where Lorna and I got married!

 

Claire and David – Southdowns Manor Wedding Photography

I have known Claire for quite a long time now, must be more than a dozen years, and she has even modelled for me once (in a wedding dress too!) so I was very happy to be asked to photograph her wedding to David at Southdowns Manor.

It was a chilly day and there was not a lot of light about, but it did mean we could use the Golden Hour (sunset) just after the ceremony. The grounds of the Manor provided a lovely backdrop.

Stacey and Paul – Idsworth Church Wedding Photography

The weather report wasn’t good, lots of rain expected, but somehow it managed to stay dry all day for Stacey and Paul’s hilltop wedding.

As mentioned in my previous post, Idsworth Church, also known as St. Huberts, is located in the middle of a field at the top of a hill. The climb up proved to be tricky for a few people, and even some of the cars failed to make it, but there were a couple of 4×4’s able to help.

The reception was held at Crouchers Hotel, near Chichester in West Sussex.
