The material to make this collection was handmade entirely by artisans from high mountains in Northern Vietnam. The brocade pattern with the contemporary textile creates the luxury look but remains still as clothing that is wearable by consumers. See more…

Inspired by street and culture, Shoreditch’s American bar and restaurant Far Rockaway is considered to be the freshest place in Shoreditch with an ambiance that boasts a perfect combination of urban art and unique creativity. I recently had the opportunity to carry out a Portrait Photography for Poker the official WPT Magazine with the famous poker player, Sam Trickett. Taking Portrait Photography as can be witnessed by the above photographs, entails an intricate amount of altering lighting for each shoot. Each photograph that is captured requires its unique adjustment of lighting in order to be able to grasp the wholeness of the image in real life and transfer it onto the photograph. An essential part of making a Portrait Photography as authentic as possible is making the subject feel comfortable and at ease. See more…

Bridal Boudoir shoot, the moments of the bride wearing lingerie which beautifully hug her figure and show off her boundless sensuality and charm, just before she wears her wedding gown and get married to the one her heart has chosen. It’s that little “spicy” secret that makes every bride feel special and sexual in her wedding day (and of course, the special night that follows).

What makes bridal boudoir shoot different than most other sexy and glamour photo shoots, is that it brings out the sensuality of each bride in an elegant and artistic way that is never too provocative and cheap looking. It is a quality private bridal shoot that every bride (and her partner) should be proud of, especially when shot by a professional Photographer that has many years of experience behind his back.

When I was called to do the boudoir shoot of Anne, it was a truly wonderful experience. As a wedding Photographer, I attempted to bring out the sensuality of the bride-to-be Anne in the most artistic and tasteful way possible, taking into consideration her individual beauty and style to come up with something truly mesmerising and unique. The result was absolutely stunning. Anne looked sexy and elegant at the same time, and her individual allure was evident throughout all the shots. I particularly enjoyed photographing Anne as she had very strong features and a beautiful curvy body that was ideal for capturing these kinds of shots. Spacial thanks to Gillian Wallbanks and Erin Carol for the styling.

A London Love Gallery photoshoot turns a simple family portrait into something incredible. London is one of the most photogenic cities in the world and there isn’t a day that goes by when I don’t get a little thrill at the fact that I get to work with such a fantastic backdrop and when you throw in a family as friendly as this one, then you can see precisely why I love my job when I’m doing a family photoshoot in London.

You may think that weddings are virtually the same as christening photography and christening videography. While it is true that the events are similar in many ways – the setting, the families, the familiar ceremony, christenings have a different feel altogether as the parents are typically more relaxed than a bride and groom, and that makes a world of difference to a professional photographer.  See more…

The sun was shining to make it a gorgeous day for Fiona’s baptism photography at Our Lady of Loreto and St Winefride’s in Kew. The Roman Catholic church’s light, bright interior was a fantastic backdrop for christening photography, and I enjoyed shooting some of the church’s details before the guest of honour arrived and the service began.

For many women their wedding day is the one day when they feel like a celebrity. They have honed their bodies, followed rigorous beauty routines, and had their hair and makeup professionally styled to make them not only look incredible, but feel more beautiful and confident than at any other time in their lives as they walk down the aisle. Azariah wanted to extend that feeling but give it a personal twist just for her husband which is why she asked for a bridal boudoir photoshoot.

Boudoir photography is enormously feminine and empowering. It allows a women to be photographed in the most flattering way, so they can show a side of their personality which is usually kept under wraps. Surprising your spouse-to-be with a sensual collection of photos on the morning of your wedding will certainly make sure they’re at the church on time!

A baby’s christening or baptism is one of the most significant early moments in their life. Christening videography gives you a documentary record of every precious moment of this momentous day to cherish forever. In christenings not only are you celebrating their place in your family, the religious sacrament commemorates their acceptance into the church.

I was very happy to be the christening videographer for Leonidas’ baptism at St Nectarios church in Battersea London, where Father Christodoulos officiated. Leonidas was an angel throughout the service, happily being held by his Godparents as they committed to their role in his life while his parents watched proudly. Even being undressed and immersed in the font did not upset him – I suspect this little lion loves bath time!

The interior St Nektarios’ church was wonderfully lit by the sunshine which streamed through the windows and showcased the rich colours and gold accents of the paintings which adorn the walls. It was an intimate, loving gathering of family and friends who witnessed Leonidas’ special day, each of whom was given a traditional witness pin, or martyrika, to commemorate their participation.

The quality of light inside a church can make baptism videography difficult with a normal camera, but having a professional christening videographer with the right experience and equipment makes all the difference. Whether your christening is an intimate affair or a large gathering of family and friends, I will capture the essence of joy and love that surrounds you and your child. See more…

Elsie’s Christening was a pleasure to photograph at the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Divine Wisdom, known as Saint Sophia church in Bayswater which I believe is also one of the best churches in London and a world-class orthodox cathedral.

Elsie was a gorgeous little girl and we loved capturing the special moments of her day, with her lovely family. As always the Cathedral of St Sophia in Bayswater was full of spectacular detail and made a fantastic back drop inside and out for all shots. We particularly liked zoning in on Elsie’s expressions throughout the orthodox baptism ceremony, so sweet and unaware of what was about to happen. We also loved capturing the expressions of her parents interacting with her, the tiny details like her bracelet being held and little feet.

The sun shone, and puffy white clouds drifted lazily across a blue sky when Vasilis was received into the Orthodox faith at St George Greek Church in Kingston. Unassuming from the outside yet wonderfully decorated with gilded iconography and a stunning azure blue ceiling within, it is not a place with which I was very familiar before photographing this Orthodox Greek christening, but I was very pleased to have been introduced to it as it has a lovely atmosphere.

Being a christening photographer I really loved capturing these moments of Aristolis Wo’s baptism. There was an ambience of blue throughout the entire portraiture, which not only represent a ‘boy’ but also such wonderful qualities, like strength and stability.
Everything was beautifully and tastefully done, including the keepsakes and little clothing for Aristotelis Wo, all tied with blue ribbon, carrying an almost nautical theme. Lovely settings like the deep blue leather sofa, made for wonderful photos with all of the children together.
He was a very good boy to photograph and this personality can be shown through the imagery.

Below is a collection of pictures for a luxury mobile phone by Envvvy, targeted specifically for females. Envvvy is an exclusive brand that typically uses precious and/or semi precious metals and stones in their collections, justifying the thousands of pounds they charge for their luxury goods. Popular with the Arabian culture, plus all of those who shop at Harrods, this series of photographs had to be particularly high end and able to lure in this high profile genre of people. This Fashion-look Photoshoot was done in studio and then towards the end outdoors. The models were dressed glamorous and sophisticated to cleverly lure both men and women to wanting what is in the hands of these tall beauties. I particularly enjoyed this shoot as I love photographing long gowns and capturing the way they move on camera.

London wedding Photographer – The arrangement and preparation for the magnificent wedding of Anna and Brad took place at the Grange City Hotel in Tower Hill London. Nothing could compare with the striking view of skyscrapers like the Shard across the London skyline. As a London wedding photographer I had the lucky chance of capturing a breathtaking panorama from the room where Anna and her friends were preparing for the wedding. The excitement was palpable and everyone in the room could feel it. Anna’s friends and relatives were proud to be there and eagerly walked her through the thrilling process of getting ready for her special day. Some unique photos of Anna during her preparation can be witnessed as well as Brad’s with his friends and relatives cheering on and rejoicing in their joyous day. The wedding ceremony took place at the church of St Olave in Tower Hill; One of the few surviving mediaeval buildings in the heart of London. See more…
