With only days to go till Megan & Harry’s big day it feels like wedding fever is hitting it’s peak. What’s better than a Royal Wedding to celebrate all things white and wonderful and here at Heather Capture we’re getting full swing into wedding season.
We love getting to share someone’s big day, capturing all of those special moments and creating memories for them to look back on for years to come.
We’re celebrating the Royal Wedding here at Cedar Farm throughout the month of May with a wedding exhibition here in the Art @ Cedar Farm building, showcasing all the businesses and what they have to offer to help you prepare for your own big day.
To mark the occasion at Heather Capture, we are offering £100 discount for any wedding bookings made during the Royal Wedding weekend.
Bank holiday fun
This weeks blog post comes from a very sunny bank holiday weekend at centre parcs.
The weekend was full of fun, woodland treks, baby geese, wine and BBQs!
Although clocked off from work for the weekend my big camera is always by my side ready to get all the action, even if David gets bored of smiling for me!
We had a such a great time it always ticks all the boxes for a family weekend away, refuelled and ready for back to the studio!
Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend
Carr Hill High School
Last week we had the pleasure of photographing Carr Hill High School in Kirkham.
The day started at the first bell, with a whirlwind trip around school to make sure we covered all grounds!
It was lovely to meet all of the students and get to see the huge selection of resources and activities they had on offer.
A very friendly school and really well organised by Mrs Bowie-McLean.
Here are few images from the day.
Photos down the lane
I love creating photos of people to treasure forever.
At Capture we do lots of portraits, from new born babies, right through to big birthday celebrations such as 90th parties!
One of our most popular photos are ‘down the lane images’ which are simply what it says on the can!
Jake and Josh had lots of fun down the lane at weekend, looking so grown up from their last photoshoot with us.
Me and the boys laughed a lot, I have tried to capture the boys in a relaxed and fun way showing their personalities within the images I created.
Enjoy viewing them, especially Ann!
It’s back to school today on the blog as we give you little history lesson on the beginnings of Capture. Capture is now 16 years old!! It was started in 2002 when Heather photographed her first wedding. After studying Photography at Blackpool College she had decided to setup her own business, and soon began expanding taking photos of family portraits as well as weddings and setting up a studio in her mum and dads garage.
I joined Heather in 2008 (eek!) helping to share her ever increasing workload and taking over the admin and accounts side of the business as well as having the important task of designing the wedding albums.
Two years later we moved to a studio at Cedar farm in Mawdesley and we haven’t looked back since. Working here gave us the opportunity to dip our toes into the world of commercial photography, taking product photos and headshots for the businesses here. Since then we have gone on to take photos for customers such as Jaffa, Jack Spratt & tandoor-i.
Taking photos is Heathers passion and safe to say she is pretty well practised with a camera, she is always taking photos as you can see from her Instagram (@heathercapturephotography), whether she’s working or not. And as you can see from the photos below, she’s pretty good at it too!
Welcome to our new website! We’ve been busy behind the scenes here at Capture for the past couple of months working on refreshing and updating our website and switching things up with a brand new logo.
Which therefore means the blog is back! For those that have visited these parts before, you may have missed the blog where we like to give you a little sneak preview of our recent portraits and weddings and for those that are first time visitors, welcome along!
As well as the logo and website, we’ve made a few changes to the studio. A brand new sofa (which I can confirm is very comfortable, to enjoy viewing your photos) new studio flooring and a cosy corner downstairs with our new frame sample and a snazzy yellow velvet chair.
We’re still working on a few more additions to the studio, but we’ll keep you updated as we go along, it’s pretty much like Grand Designs around here!
