We get a lot of enquiries from couples who want to do another shoot with us after their wedding day. There are all sorts of reasons why couples might want to do an I Do Redo Shoot: sometimes they are disappointed with their wedding images from using another photographer or relative to shoot their day; other times it’s because they loved their day so much that they want the chance to wear their outfits again and get the opportunity to create some stunning art images; and sometimes it is just so they can get different images from the ones they had on their day, like a city shoot after a country wedding. We also get couples that have married abroad and now want to have some gorgeous shots out and about around London.
We received an email from Jeanette and her husband Ben in February this year. They were married in January 2012 and they had managed to get some gorgeous shots outside, but were keen to get some indoor shots and also some family and friend group photos, which had been missed. They had initially enquired about Julia doing their wedding images, but were unable to use her on the day so they were really keen to get her to do some images for them. “We wanted a photographer that was both editorial standard and good fun. Julia’s portfolio seemed to marry this blend perfectly.”
We arranged for Julia to meet Jeanette and Ben at Cannizaro House in Wimbledon for their I Do Redo shoot. Cannizaro House were wonderful to work with and so accommodating for the shoot. It is a stunning venue, especially the new Orangery, and we knew we could create some stylish indoor images that Jeanette and Ben really wanted. Cannizaro also has a great outdoor space so there would be the chance to get some fun shots outside, too.
Jeanette and Ben really enjoyed their morning with Julia. Jeanette said, “Julia made us feel super relaxed and was great at giving direction to achieve better results. Whenever people tell us to pose we normally just look quite helplessly at each other, but Julia was a true pro. We were really keen to create some gorgeous images that would be a lasting memory.”
When Jeanette summed up her I Do Redo Shoot she said, “It was great being photographed by Julia herself. I felt a bit star struck having watched her You Tube wedding dance a ridiculous number of times!!!!”
Jeanette and Ben headed off on their honeymoon shortly after their shoot with Julia. We wish them all the happiness in the world for their married life together.
