Me and my little ginger ninja decided to head down to the range and bash some balls!
I grabbed my little X70 with the wide angle converter to grab a few shots.
My little Alfie has the funniest golf swing that you could ever see - he almost finishes with a little pirouette styled dance!
He emptied his basket in no time - mostly across the front of my bay, then nicked most of my balls too.
We had an awesome bit of daddy and boy time.
Sandhill is a lovely little range - perfect for taking the kids down to. For more info on the place, click here.
Here's a few snaps.
We had a lovely little explore in the woods. My littlest enjoyed throwing stones in the water, collecting as many sticks as he could possibly carry and generally being a little mucky monster.
His big brother Alfie enjoyed searching for acorns, conkers and pine cones, whilst trying to spot the local wildlife.
I obviously spent the time pretending I was one of the Goonies, or recreating one of my favourite boyhood movies - Stand By Me. One day I'll grow up...
Here's a few snaps.
A few weeks ago, I had the lovely pleasure of photographing the wedding of Emma and Adam over in Sheffield.
The entire day was held at Cubley Hall. A beautiful little Hotel perched on the edge of the Peak District.
The day started with a little bridal prep - first in one room while we waited for the Bridal Suite to be prepared, then we moved upstairs to finish.
Bridal prep was a good laugh and, as usual, I terrorised everyone at the prospect of photos before the make up went on!
I skipped out after a while and just managed to catch all the guys turning up in a cool vintage VW bus. A few quick snaps and it was back up in time to catch Emma being pulled round the room while having her dress fastened. I always chuckle to myself every time I see a bride being fastened into a corset back - us guys have the getting dressed part pretty easy I reckon!
Then it was showtime.
The wedding vows were taking place in Cubley's beautiful rustic barn. Adam was waiting patiently at the end of the aisle for his bride to arrive.
The bridal party came in and smiles, as well as tears, were everywhere.
Vows were exchanged, kisses were kissed and cheers were had.
After a quick room change around, it was time to head back in for the wedding breakfast. Before everyone sat down though, the little memorial display set up on a vintage organ in the corner of the room held the attention of everyone who passed. It was a beautiful moment to see the emotions of everyone who stopped and spent a minute sharing a little part of the day with the ones that couldn't be there.
We were soon ready for the speeches and, once again, tears were flowing as beautiful words were spoken. The love definitely overflowed.
Thank you for having me there to capture your day guys, I enjoyed every minute of it.
I'll see you both again soon.
Here's a few pictures of their day.
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Michelle and Alistair over in Dewsbury.
The entire day was held in the lovely Heath Cottage Hotel. A gorgeous little venue - perfect for small, intimate weddings such as this one.
The word intimate describes this wedding well. It was a lovely little, family oriented wedding. And that means - kids. Lots of kids!
Kids are ace at a wedding, they never fail to offer some perfect photo opportunities - whether it be rolling on the floor or stuffing as many sweets from the sweet cart that they can into their face all at once. And yep, this happened. Lots!
We started the day with a little bit of bridal prep, with more people squeezed into a small room as was humanly possible.
After the prep, it was time to head down and mill around with the groom and guests until the room was ready for us.
Before you knew it, it was business time. The vows were spoken, kisses were kissed and a lovely couple walked out a married one.
Smiles for miles, as the saying goes.
Food was served, drinks were clinked and balloons were soon flying everywhere.
People danced, people laughed and people loved. Pretty cool wedding day.
Oh yeah - I did get attacked by about 2,000 balloon swords during the day!
Congrats Michelle and Alistair - thanks for having me. I loved every minute.
Here's a few pics of their day.
On Sunday I had a wedding consultation up in the Yorkshire Dales, so me and Alfie decided to have a little Father & Son Adventure Time Road Trip™.
Our first stop was Hardraw Force up near Wensleydale. The tallest single drop waterfall in England. Also slightly famous from being the location for the waterfall scene from Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves movie.
It's a nice little walk round. Doesn't cost much, so worth a stop off if you're in the area. The waterfall can be pretty tame if the weather has been good, but can soon roughen up after a heavy rainfall. I think we got it pretty much somewhere in the middle.

After that, it was nearly time for my meeting, so we headed off to nearby Yorebridge House.
Once the business bit was done, it was Alfie's favourite part of the day - chippy time!
We fought our way through the crowds of bikers and wolfed down some good ol' Yorkshire chips lathered in salt and vinegar.
And on again to our last stop off - Ribblehead Viaduct.
The viaduct is seriously impressive. 400 metres long and over 100 feet high at it's tallest point, with 24 massive arches spread across the Ancient Monument ground that sits beneath it. We had a bit of proper chill out time, exploring the area and sitting on the rocks watching the sun go down.
A perfect day out.

Here's a few snaps from our day.
Thought I'd start this little blog to let people know what we get up to. Some personal stuff thrown in the mix too.
