This is Marga. She is currently building her wedding planning business and hired me to take some photographs of her for the new website. It's essential to have some up to date, colourful and engaging head shots on your website. It really helps readers to engage with you as a person - and after all people buy from people!
Marga will be specialising her business to organising country weddings. So it was important that we picked a venue that was reflective of her brand mission and client's ideal aesthetic. For this reason we chose Petersham Nurseries in Richmond. It's a beautiful oasis of countryside chic not far from the hustle and bustle of Central London.
Marga booked me for a 1 hour shoot and we started with a cup of tea at the lovely tea house. I like to keep my portrait photo shoots very relaxed and I'll often take some snaps over a cup of tea or coffee. I find that it helps set the relaxed mood and keeps the look very conversational.
After we finished our coffee we went for a wonder round the nursery. Sometimes I would pose Marga, other times I just walked along with her and snapped away. I very much see a photo shoot as a collaboration between me and the client. I like to give plenty of opportunity for the client to provide creative input if they feel like it. Otherwise I am happy to provide direction to make sure that people look their absolute best.
