Deposits for Portrait Shoots

Deposits for Portrait Shoots

Wedding and portrait photo shoots Photography by Justin & Emily Krause Bridgwater Somerset photographer-03 copy We really didn’t want to do this but we are having to start taking £10 non-returnable deposits for portrait shoots from the start of the New Year. Similarly, any  Gift Vouchers that are booked need to be paid for in full before they are made up.

This is simply because over the last few months we’ve had shoots being cancelled last minute, people not showing up (not even calling to cancel) and people who have asked for Gift Vouchers not picking them up from the studio after we have called and emailed to say they are ready.

We value each and every customer and want to make sure you feel valued, having the best experience possible. We think this is one of the best ways to help provide this.

Day Trip to Lapland

Day Trip to Lapland

Emily, Lapland Finland. Bath Christmas Market Photography. Monarch Airways Charter flight

As you may know Emily and I took a trip to Lapland courtesy of Bath Tourism & Canterbury Travels. We couldn’t take Matilda as we didn’t have a passport for her and according to the passport office we couldn’t get her first passport in less than 7 days. As it also happens the Travel Company don’t provide snowsuits for under 2’s anyhow so she would have froze!

Our day started at 4am, up showered and dressed with the all important coffee in hand ready to meet our friends, Ben and Katie, for a 6am Check-in at Bristol Airport. With our e-tickets and passports in hand it all got very real when we sailed through check-in (I really like flying with only hand luggage!) and the excitement of going to a winter wonderland to see Santa in his actual home in Lapland really started to kick in! We went through the ever necessary security checks – which really is a more of a rigmarole for photographers than the average traveler, having to take out the cameras, lenses and iPad (on which I’m writing this blog on the flight home with everyone else on the plane asleep). Even with all the kit out the bag I always seem to set the scanners off 9 times out of 10 (I will never forget my public strip search in Dubai International when we flew back from a wedding in Malaysia…all shades of dignity left, embarrassed on the floor).

Camera equipment for the Lapland Trip

We had to decide what camera equipment for the Lapland Trip we needed. Obviously a bit of a photographic opportunity which couldn’t be wasted but what should we take that will cope with the temperatures over there?

Fancy WINNING a trip to Lapland? Don’t mind if we do!!

After visiting Bath Christmas Market Emily saw a competition on the Market’s Facebook page saying about winning a trip to Lapland when you upload a photograph from the market this year.  I entered the comp with a photograph taken by Emily of our beautiful daughter, Matilda, enchanted by all the pretty lights on one of the stalls and then thought nothing of it…

Indian Wedding Celebrations

Indian Wedding Celebrations

Last month we were asked by Arun Sharma if we could cover some Indian wedding celebrations for his brother, Nitin, the Groom who lives in Bridgwater but who was getting married up in Birmingham. Specifically we covered three very different events of the Indian Wedding all at Nitin’s parents home in Bridgwater; A party on the Friday night called the Ladies Sangeet and two Indian Wedding Celebrations - Photography by Justin and Emily Krause.International Wedding and Portrait photographers. Studio in Bridgwater, Somerset Henna Tattoos 2 religious ceremonies primarily conducted in Sanskrit and Punjabi – the Sainth Ceremony on Saturday afternoon and the Sehra Bandi (Sehrabandi) Ceremony on the Sunday morning of the wedding.

Find Us

Finding our Studio

Our studio is in Bridgwater in the beautiful county of Somerset. It’s pretty easy to find us! However, unless you already know where we are you won’t know the studio is there if the studio is closed….and that’s how we like it. We’re not at the studio full-time due to having other photography commitments elsewhere and Emily being an Ofsted Registered Childminder, Chair of the Somerset Childminders Association and Lead Childminder for the Bridgwater Area means we typically only do shoots on Friday’s, Saturday’s and some Sunday’s. If we had a high-street or more prominent location the studio would look closed a lot of of the time which wouldn’t reflect well on the business and certainly doesn’t reflect how busy we are!

Bath Christmas Market

So off we set on our trip to Bath Christmas Market. Matilda found time to take a snooze in the car on the journey . We found a parking space and don’t you just love it when someone is leaving as you’re parking up and offers you their all-day parking ticket? A simple act of kindness that really started our evening in the right way.
