It was such a whirl wind when I shot the Gatsby themed shoot at Ingleside House (what with my own wedding, honeymoon and back-to-back shoots that followed) that I thought I would recap over the amazing day and share a mini montage I have put together of some more of the shots.

We worked extremely hard to get the shoot planned and executed prior to the release of the Great Gatsby movie this year, pulling everything together within 2 weeks. We wanted to stand out from the crowd, not just doing another “vintage” shoot. I wanted to inject an urban element using stylised lighting and shoot from a fashion/editorial perspective. Everyone worked amazingly well together and really got stuck in. It was a bit crazy having so many models on set and trying to get the shots, but we did it! Many people thought the main group shot was a selection of shots that I had “comp’d” together, but I’m proud to say that we did it in one!

I have to say, I felt extremely well supported by everyone who gave up their time to get involved in this shoot and we are super proud of the results – especially since the article came out in Cotswold Style Magazine and finding out that we’d landed on the cover – what a fab day for Photography By Stefanie!

I’ve added the link to the online article below for anyone who missed it when it came out and for full credits on this amazingly fun job.

Ingleside House is an amazingly unique venue with loads of interesting spaces so when Kelly and I first chatted about this shoot I was keen to explore the different beautiful rooms and alcoves. It struck me that not only is it a beautiful wedding venue, but it works brilliantly for anything from big corporate do’s using either the house or the massive Barn Theatre, through to being a great place to hold a massive house party – especially with the uber-cool underground bar! I really wish that when I was planning my wedding I’d known about Ingleside House – we would have booked it in a heartbeat and it would have saved a lot of people travelling all the way to Suffolk! But we loved our big day nevertheless and time has flown by already, with more shoots planned, so watch this space……..

Cotswold Vintage Bridal photo-shoot fun

I was thrilled when good friends of ours recently approached me to do some shots for their new business, Cotswold Vintage Bridal – a bridal boutique with a difference, specialising in original era dresses and outfits.

We had a fabulous day for weather in the Cotswolds and headed up local Cleeve Hill to take some romantic inspired shots of our model in one of the beautiful gowns.

Even though the blues sky was hidden behind a heat haze when we got up there, we think the shots came out rather well and have a bit of a dreamy feel to them. Thanks to model Jade for being such a good sport and for coping admirably in all the heat!
