This year I have put a lot of heart, soul, time, effort and yes, money, into trying to find my style, learn as much as I can and be the best wedding photographer I can be. Part of this process was signing up to the mentoring course offered by Charlie Campey Photography. I am a long time stalker of Charlie’s work which is stunning, beautiful, and really honest.
Back in June I was lucky enough to assist Charlie at one of his weddings at Tithe Barn in Petersfield. It was a lovely warm day and the barn was understated on the outside but inside, the ceilings were high and the white stoned curved walls gave the impression that it was a cathedral!
On the day, Tara got ready at a nearby farm house with her bridesmaids and flower girl. Once she was ready, it was on to the church where Tom was already nervously awaiting. After the ceremony, Tara and Tom’s family and friends gathered around and showered them with confetti (one of my favourite parts of any wedding!). The barn, where they celebrated was the perfect setting. We found a little gap in the day to drive to a nearby wheat field for some images as the sun was setting.
It was a great opportunity to see how Charlie approached the day, shot and then afterwards, edited the images. I also did a little bit of shooting and editing of my own, which you can see below.
Unfortunately my year of mentoring with Charlie is almost up (sad face!). I cannot recommend his programme enough. He’s not only an amazing photographer but a great teacher and friend. He only takes on one per year so get in quick!
