Birthday Girl Photo Shoot

Photo Shoot Session for the Birthday Girl

To celebrate turning the big 8, the birthday girl chose to have photos in a professional photography studio.

The birthday girl arrived with her mum and younger brother, with a huge balloon and amazing unicorn cake. She certainly enjoyed the photo shoot experience, with different poses and backdrops. Reluctantly, she did agree to let her brother have some photos with her. The following day was the party with her friends at a local pizza restaurant.

With the different backdrops, we created an excellent choice of images of the children individually and also together. Below are just a few images from the shoot.

The Price Family Photo Shoot Session

Getting the Price Family Together for a Family Photo Shoot Session

One of the most advanced booking’s for a family photo shoot session we have had was for the Price family, booked 9 months in advance.

Lovely reason for this, their parents live in Florida and were due to visit in the summer. Therefore the perfect opportunity to get the whole family together, with plenty of notice for everyone. As specialists in large family portraits, we can confidently say that the most difficult job is for the actual organiser!  Trying to get 3 or more families in the same place at the same time is certainly a challenge.

We started the session with the main shot of the whole family. We then broke it down into different groups to offer a great variety of images. Below are a few of our favourites from this lovely shoot.

Wedding at Moxhull Hall

Masquerade Wedding at Moxhull Hall, Sutton Coldfield

On 15th June, we had the pleasure of capturing Anne-Marie and Roy’s special day at Moxhull Hall in Sutton Coldfield.

The theme of the wedding was Masquerade, which was absolutely fantastic. All of their family and friends embraced the theme, wearing masks in every colour and style possible. The bride looked stunning in blue and green, with peacock feathers. The ceremony took place in Calliope’s Garden under the gazebo. The weather was certainly on the happy couple’s side with glorious sunshine. Walking down the aisle, the Bridesmaid and Page Boys put on an excellent show, announcing the Bride’s arrival. As a personal touch to the service, the Groom walked up to meet his Bride, to walk down the aisle together, which was truly lovely.

After the ceremony, as an added personal touch, a gold picture frame and chalk boards were waiting for us at Reception. In place of a Guest Book, the Bride and Groom wanted their guests to write a message on the chalk board and have their photograph taken in the frame. These shots were arranged and taken by Vicky, whilst Phil was with the Bride and Groom doing their portraiture.

Below are some of the images from their day.

Kids Photo Shoot

Kids Photo Shoot before School

We recently welcomed this lovely little man came to the studio for a kids photo shoot before he takes his next big step in the world – starting school.

Mum wanted photos of her little prince ahead of the next chapter of his journey. At 4 years old, he was so confident in front of the camera and loved every minute he was in the studio. Coming up with different sayings with Phil, instead of “cheese”, and shouting them as loudly as he could. Our favourite has got be ‘cheeky carrots’. We used several different backdrops and poses, which created an excellent set of images to choose from. Below are just a few of our favourites.

We wish our ‘cheeky carrots little man’ every success, fun and happiness in his journey through school.

Farm Wedding in Nuneaton

Jamie-Leigh and Pete’s Farm Wedding

On 1st July, we had the absolute pleasure of providing wedding photography for Jamie-Leigh and Pete’s farm wedding. The ceremony was conducted at Nettle Hill in Coventry followed by reception on their farm in Nuneaton.

This was a truly traditional farm wedding. The theme execution was absolutely spot on, with every attention to detail. The work that the couple put in to make the farm into a perfect wedding venue was immense. They built a haystack stage for the entertainment to perform on, built a swing and bridge over the pond for the photographs, dressed the marquee superbly, and even built a bar using an old box trailer.  This was a dream wedding to photograph with so many shot opportunities.

Here are just a few of the images.

Bridal party arriving by tractor – superb start to the day! 

The ceremony was intimate and lovely 

The Groom being coy with the kiss, but don’t worry, we caught it from the back of the room. The advantage of two ‘togs’ being there to capture different view points. 

Travelling in style, from tractor to the very rare Polaris 

Stunning portraiture on the purpose built bridge and swing   

The confetti shot

The cake, love it!

Traditional barn dance by the bridal party kicked off the evening party. 

This will be one of our most memorable weddings. Thank you so much to Jamie-Leigh and Pete for choosing us to record your special day. Note to the couple – as mentioned on the day, you should open this up as a wedding venue – it’s amazing!!

If you would like to contact us about capturing your special day, please contact Phil and Vicky on 01827 215 707 or send us a message.

Baby Portraits

10 Week Old Baby Portraits

We recently welcomed the Redman family to the studio for baby portraits of their 10 week old gorgeous princess.

She was a little star throughout the shoot, with lots of smiles and happy with her different outfit changes. We got the studio nice and cosy so she was comfortable with her ‘au-natural’ shots. Using different textures of blankets and throws, we created an excellent variety of images. Mum and dad also had a few shots too, which were stunning. Below are a few images from the shoot.

Baby photo shoot sessions are only £20. If you would like to book your session, please call Vicky and Phil on 01827 215 707, or scroll down to the enquiry form.

Photography Studio in Atherstone

New Photography Studio Now Open in Atherstone

We are proud to announce that the new Philip Charles Photography studio is now open in Atherstone, Warwickshire.

As a little bit of background, Philip Charles Photography was founded nearly 10 years ago by Phil, and was joined by wife Vicky in 2015. Based in Tamworth, tucked away on a farm, our studio was a little tricky to be found. The studio was small, but great for what we did, taking photographs. Over time, the studio became busier, which was awesome, but we soon outgrew the space and needed to find larger premises.

So here we are, in our new studio in the lovely market town of Atherstone, just outside Tamworth. The shop was originally a hairdressers, so everything had to be stripped out and redesigned. Walls have been built, flooring has been laid, and goodness knows how many gallons of paint we have gone through! It took 2 months of late nights, blood, sweat and tears, but it was worth every minute.

We now have:

Reception

Dressing Room

Client Area and Image Viewing Room

The Studio

 

We do all types of photography including large family groups, newborn, babies, professional headshots, pets, products etc… Whatever you need photographing, we can do it.

For all enquiries you can call Phil and Vicky on 01827 215 707, drop into the studio at 128 Long Street, Atherstone or fill in the enquiry form. We look forward to hearing from you.
