Back in July, we enjoyed a trip down near St. Ives for a fashion shoot at a local stables. Despite an aggressive wind, the sun was bright and we managed to take some beautiful shots of our model and horse. Our friend Natasha, from Natasha Flower make-up, arranged the shoot, and County Cream provided the dress and veil.
When model and horse were suitably prepared, we trotted out to a quiet field in the hope of capturing some of the impact an equine guest can bring to Cornwall wedding photography. The weather was bright, but a strong wind made photography a challenge as our lighting umbrellas fought against the gusts. Thankfully we managed to work through the wind, and seal some fine images of the model and bridal-wear.
The wind wasn’t the only obstacle, however, and our trusty steed proved less than reliable. Fortune – and the stablemistress – eventually prevailed, and our horse ceased his charging and settled into more photogenic postures. Our patience was rewarded with some standout photographs of horse and rider set against the brilliant summer sky. Eventually we retreated into the stable barn, where the rustic wood interiors made an evocative backdrop for some darker shots, as the wedding dress stood contrast between the horses and haybales.
Finally it was time to leave, and we said farewell to our model, and to the stables. A memorable day’s shoot left us with some great photographs, and we were pleased to see Dotty Vintage Weddings magazine feature the photoshoot in their latest issue.

Had a great time in the studio this week shooting with the very talented model: Tiffany Kate. I’ve worked with Tiff on a few occasions and have always got great results. The inspiration for this shoot was to blend high fashion style of photography with the dark gothic style that Tiff generally tends to shoot.
If you would like a shoot in the studio, why not get in touch. You don’t have to be a model to look great in front of the camera. We can arrange Hair and Make-up artists to make you look your best, let us make you feel like a movie star, and get some incredible photos in the mean time.
Although I spend most of my time as a wedding photographer here in Cornwall, one of my other photography passions is fashion photography. I have worked in and had my own studio ever since I started in photography.
I have worked with Sarah a couple of times in the past and have always been impressed with just how photogenic she is. You wouldn’t believe that she’s a mother of four that only does a little bit of modelling in her spare time because she enjoys it.
If you would like to know more about a studio shoot why not get hold of us, or pop round to the studio for a chat. You don’t have to be a model to look great in photos. I love helping people to look their best in front of the camera.
