Sunset over The Pyramid Stage, Glastonbury Festival 2014, Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset.

My first Glastonbury Festival! I didn’t know what to expect to be honest. I heard it was awesome and there was so much to see! But wasn’t expecting it to be the scale it is! So much to see that even if the festival didn’t change in the course of 5 years you’d still not experience everything I doubt! Also nobody tells you that you go to Glastonbury Festival to get fit! I walked around 15miles on one day according to the Strava app on my phone! Continue reading »

Quantock Lodge

Quantock Lodge, without a shadow of a doubt, is simply one of Somerset’s hidden gems. Set in 8000 acres of stunning scenery in the Quantock Hills it really is quite imposing yet truly beautiful.

Pre-Wedding Shoot with Andi and Tom at Burrow Mump (Somerset Levels Flooding).

As-well as consultations/meetings for your wedding photography with your formal/group photographs all noted in advance, we also like to do a pre-wedding shoot where possible. We see this as a vital part of the preparations for your wedding. Getting to know all our brides and grooms before the weddings means we’re not strangers to you on your day. This really does reflect in your photographs as you’ll both be more relaxed around us. It’s also a chance for you to see how we will be on your day. After the shoot a selection of the images are edited and put up on your weddings private gallery on our website where you can choose a complimentary 12″x8″ print.

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?

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?

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. We managed to fit all that was required of us into an already full and very busy weekend of meetings and shoots in the studio. Continue reading »

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!

November Pet Shoots

With Ian driving on the roadtrip up to North Wales for Rally GB it gave me a chance to edit the shoots from our November Pet Shoots last Sunday.  Got home a moment ago and uploaded them all! It was such a fun day with lots of great characters in the studio…and the dogs were funny also!
