Wow, after a totally frantic shooting season, it’s time to catch up with some of my press coverage. It’s interesting, I attend a couple of large wedding fairs and do a little print based advertising but lots of clients first come across my photography in the wedding magazines. I’m extremely grateful to my clients for their kind permission to use their pictures and just love it when editors ring me up and say “I’ve seen some pictures on your website that we’d love to feature….”.
Anyway, on to the pictures.
1. Check out the latest Your Kent Wedding.
That’s Andrea Lempriere looking fabulous just before her wedding to Mark at The Knowle in Highham. Flip open the magazine and you’ll find a rather gorgeous 4 page spread featuring highlights from their “shabby chic” wedding. Including a close up of the Knowle’s famous cream cakes :).
2. A whole wedding magazine
Remember Jo and Dave? They got married at High Rocks in October. A stunning album and a few pages in a national magazine are enough for most people. But not Jo….she got the crew at Daisywheel to make her a whole magazine for all her guests. Naturally I was happy to help out – this is a great idea if you purchase the digital files of your wedding pictures. You can either create a magazine yourself or ask a professional firm to do it for you. It makes a great gift for family and friends.
3. A Kentish Wedding – Winter
Claire and Carl were married in September at Quex House in Birchington. There’s a rather nice feature on them in the Winter Issue of A Kentish Wedding. And you can see from the text that they had their priorities right! Venue and photographer were the first thing they booked :).
4. A Kentish Wedding Autumn
Err, yeah. Slightly embarrassing this one. The season has been so busy that I haven’t had time to mention this until now. Lovely spread on Caroline and Rob’s wedding at the London Golf Club. And yes, that’s the Caz and Rob that were also at Andrea and James’ wedding recently.
5. Honourable mentions.
As I was flicking through some of the magazines to put this piece together a couple of pictures in the editorial sections leaped out at me – “those looks familiar…”. Often I’ll get requests for specific pictures to illustrate articles and with my clients’ permission I’m always happy to oblige.
6. Another cover
This article was originally written for MyWeddingStory.co.uk in late December 2009. Since then my photography has also been featured on the cover of A Kentish Partnership magazine. It seemed a bit boastful to create 2 stories so I merged that in here ;).
But don’t run away with the idea that your private wedding will be plastered all over the magazines if you choose WeddingsByRyan! Editors seem to love my relaxed story telling style but pictures are never released for print without permission. So if you like then your pictures can be private between us. But if you’d like to see yourself in print then it looks like the odds are pretty good if you choose WeddingsByRyan!
Don’t forget, you can see all these magazines by making an appointment at the Gallery. Just use the contact page to get the ball rolling.
