Yes! I know it’s nearly the middle of February 2015 and the end of year blog post should technically have happened 2 months ago but the truth is Emily and I were going full throttle right up until the end of the year and I’ve only really just managed to sit down and realise it actually happened!  2014 started out with a good plan of action which then went mad and ended up with me inadvertently ticking off 4 things off my Bucket List. I got to go to the world renown, legendary, Glastonbury Festival, visit Thailand, fly Business Class (this might not seem like a big tick, but trust me, IT IS!) and ride an elephant!
2014 was a crazy year for us!

Carols in the Orchard, Orchard Studios, Cannington

I had seen trees being uplit in a few places and thought it looked amazing and magical so when one of our friends put the idea of Carols into our head the event and more ideas started flowing!

Pentax Spotmatic 35mm

Pentax Spotmatic 35mm

As some of you might know I have a bit of a collection of vintage cameras in the studio. The majority of them will work still with the right films (a couple 35mm, 110 and 120) but right now I’m loving this mint 35mm beauty that I bought off a friend. 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?

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).
