I had such a lovely email yesterday, from M, whose wedding Phil and I photographed back in November. I had heard via her new husband, who works with Phil, that they were happy with our efforts but I was still worrying in case M wasn't REALLY happy - Phil refused to badger for details however!

Anyway, she wrote asking me about printing costs etc and also told me that she was really pleased with the photos, that we didn't miss a minute and that she was glad we were their photographers - I was so relieved I nearly cried! She has made me feel more confident about the wedding we're doing in March.

This is another photo from the last wedding I did with Andy. It's a candid shot - she just turned her head and smiled and I pressed the shutter - and the focus isn't as pin-sharp as I'd have liked on the eyes. I have just learned how to do a sepia tint and so I'm experimenting with the technique - this look seems quite popular right now.

A mad busy week at work, and the news that the proposed decimation of the Wirral library service will go ahead more or less as proposed. Not happy news ...

I have started to use lightroom and found a lovely preset on it for aging photos, I have used it on some of the baby photos on my blog. That is a lovely shot, well clicked!
