OK so 5 years might not sound a lot but in this current period of economic uncertainty a few people doubted that it would be sustainable. I’m very proud that we have not only been able to make this company work but we have grown in our photographic skills, created a style and identity that people like and recommend to others, which in turn has lead to an increased customer base and extended market reach. Thankyou all for the support!

Smash the Cake 1st Birthday

Smash the Cake 1st Birthday Celebration Photoshoot ! A trend that has swept across from the good ole US of A and is getting popular over here.

Baby, Toddler, Family, Fun, Laughing, Messy Play, smile, home setting location studio

With the start of the New Year we are now doing these as one off shoots or as the culmination to our very popular “Watch Them Grow” package.

We’re doing it a little differently though. Some photography companies will arrange the cake and give you a fee to include the cost of the cake. This is fine but some of these cakes can cost a lot of money… just to see them smashed up…OK, YES that is the point but not everyone will want that option. Continue reading »

Wedding Photography: 21% of Brides said they’d spend MORE if doing it again!

HEADLINE: Wedding Photography: 21% of Brides said they’d spend MORE if doing it again! SHOCK!!

Well, not so much of a shock to us to be fair….but it’s now it has been brought to more Bride-to-be’s attention! Past Bride’s were asked what they’d spend more if they could do their wedding again. what would you do differently spend more wedding photographer new york bride photogrpahy by Justin and Emily Krause Bridgwater burnham taunton weston somerset deveon cornwall bristol london crop

Every wedding has it’s own unique moments, it’s own  story and way it will be remembered; the bride’s beautiful dress, the moving speeches, the ushers forgetting the buttonholes, Bestman forgetting the rings, the bride getting dropped during her first dance, the Bestman having a flat tyre, the vicar getting the brides name wrong in the ceremony. These all make your wedding special and personal to you (and ones we’ve experienced first hand!). But if you’re already married, would you change anything from your day?

Ultimate Mini 1 [From the Archives]

I have just found some photos that hadn’t previously been uploaded anywhere. They were taken back on 26th September 2007 when I went with Ian Wyatt and his beast Mini “LYD” up to Curborough Sprint Track  in Staffordshire for the filming of Minifilms Ultimate Mini Engine Swap DVD. These were shot on the camera I had back then; a Canon EOS 350D + 18-55mm kit lens… A cracking lil camera! This has also inadvertently inspired a whole new section on the blog named “From the Archives” where any old shoots that weren’t ever public or blog posts from the previous blog will be posted from time to time! Click for more “From the Archive” posts!

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).

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…
