Dale Zimmermann Photography - Essex Wedding Photographer: Blog https://www.dalezimmermannphotography.com/blog en-us (C) Dale Zimmermann Photography - Essex Wedding Photographer (Dale Zimmermann Photography - Essex Wedding Photographer) Mon, 09 Apr 2018 19:42:00 GMT Mon, 09 Apr 2018 19:42:00 GMT https://www.dalezimmermannphotography.com/img/s/v-5/u979509794-o758725511-50.jpg Dale Zimmermann Photography - Essex Wedding Photographer: Blog https://www.dalezimmermannphotography.com/blog 90 120 ESSEX WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER : A CREATIVE SPARK! https://www.dalezimmermannphotography.com/blog/2018/4/essex-wedding-photographer-a-creative-spark Hi all and welcome to my latest blog. Well this year has already been pretty crazy with several weddings already captured and numerous shoots upcoming. Last month I ran a successful promotion with 10% off all weddings and photo shoots, and due to it being so popular I am also running it again in April. So if you know anyone getting married (maybe it’s yourself) or would like to get some fantastic family photos captured then get in contact! Stay tuned for more stunning sneak peeks coming up from weddings at Gosfield Hall, The Essex Barn in Great Yeldham, Crondon Park and also Hedingham Castle. All amazing wedding venues in Essex.

Well this blog is going to talk about something a bit different – it’s all about those magical moments which happen during weddings and my creative spark! Now if anyone has read my previous blog on how I became a wedding photographer you will know that I liked my own wedding photos, but didn’t LOVE them! I believe there is a very fine line between taking staged photos and taking photos while they naturally happen.  I always take the approach of making those staged photos look as natural as possible. If you have been one of my couples, you will know that I am not shy by any stretch of the imagination, and you will also know that I like to have a giggle during shoots and make it as fun as possible. Many people hate having their photo taken and this is where my approach makes it as light hearted as possible. The best way to capture natural photos I have found is making the shoot about the people involved, and how they interact with one another. It’s really not about me and the camera.

Over the years my creative spark as a photographer has grown, and it’s helped with the advent of new and improved technologies. As you can see from my website and social network sites I enjoy shooting when the sun goes down and if it rains on your wedding day, I always think the best way to approach it is to embrace the weather. I also love to use light painting in my work, and I am generally ecstatic when a couple are open to trying something new or getting outside in all weathers to capture an amazing photo for their wall. Many times these shots are in my mind before the wedding day, or on occasion I get an idea whilst doing something else creative.

Of course some of these moments can just happen naturally anyway, and I am always poised to capture them. These are the best moments of course and when I come to edit photos this is when I get excited to show couples what I have got, and how amazing it looks. I can never resist a little sneak peek to them during the process.

There are so many other photographers out there, all with their own styles and approach to photography. Trying to stand out from the crowd and be different is something I am striving to do, and with that here are a selection of some of my favourite magic moments captured…….some staged………some not. Enjoy.

ESSEX WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER : A STUNNING SUFFOLK WEDDING AT BUTLEY PRIORY. https://www.dalezimmermannphotography.com/blog/2018/2/essex-wedding-photographer-a-stunning-butley-priory-wedding-in-suffolk Hi all and welcome to my latest blog and sneak peek! Well I have been busy over the last few weeks with a wedding and family shoots, and this is my first opportunity to tell you about another fantastic wedding of 2017, and one that brought back some child hood memories.

The story starts when I received an email headed “Blast from the past!” back in August 2016. The beginning of the email read “Hi Dale, I hope you are well. I can’t believe it’s been 20+ years since leaving the Harwich School very scary”. I read on and looked at the email address of the sender; it was none other than an old school friend! Now, I like most people aged a certain age (nearly 40) still keep in contact with a few school friends via social networking, or by other means, but I hadn’t spoken to Ross for 20 years. The email continued by saying that they loved the look of my photos as they were non-intrusive and this was the style they were after for their wedding photos which was booked for August 2017.

After exchanging several emails Ross and his future wife Abbie decided they wanted to book me for their day. We then arranged a meeting and pre-shoot at the stunning Flatford Mill, on the Essex/Suffolk border. I remember the meeting it vividly…….I had the most amazing chocolate brownie at the tea shop! Mmmmmmm Chocolate…….anyway we had a great meeting and pre-shoot including a view of a stunning sunset! Abbie was taking notes mentally during the shoot, including where her feet were positioned (check the brides feet in some of these photos, ha ha).

The months flew by and before we knew it, Abbie and Ross’s wedding day was here. I have shot a lot of weddings and been to numerous venues; however Butley Priory in Suffolk is now up there with one of my favourite places. This place is simply STUNNING! Abbie and Ross had decided to have a very relaxed wedding, with their nearest and dearest being there. During the ceremony and throughout the day, it was filled with tears, laughter and more tears, then more laughter! Abbie and Ross were happy for me to capture some natural moments along with staging a few moments to fit the look of their day. What followed was my photography brain going into over drive, and going around capturing some simply stunning moments. It’s a real credit to the friends and family at wedding days as they add so much to it. Abbie’s friends were a real joy, especially when it came to “twirling!”

Editing the photos was a pure joy and I constantly had a smile on my face on how they came out. This was one of my favourite weddings I have captured, and to "put the icing on the cake" (pun intended) I received this review from Abbie and Ross , to say i was over the moon was an understatement!

“Having trawled the plethora of websites trying to find a wedding photographer that grabbed our attention, they all felt very similar. We then had a look at Dale's website and saw something completely different and original in his photos. We decided he was our man and haven't looked back since.
The photos that were taken for our engagement shoot were stunning and the wedding photos were exactly what we wanted. His use of light and the environment is amazing and can get the best out of any situation. Throughout both shoots Dale's personality and humour helped even the most camera shy people relax. The wedding photos are exactly what we wanted with a relaxed feel to them and he captured the day perfectly. We would absolutely recommend Dale without a doubt and we have lost count of the number of compliments we have received from family and friends saying how fantastic the photos are"
We now have the impossible task of choosing our album photos from the 100's that were taken.
Thank you Dale for capturing our day so perfectly”.

This day was simply amazing! Abbie looked simply stunning, and that dress was beautiful! I cannot wait until I create their wedding album. So here is my latest sneak peek! Enjoy.

ESSEX WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER : HOW I BECAME A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER IN ESSEX. https://www.dalezimmermannphotography.com/blog/2018/1/essex-wedding-photographer-how-i-became-a-wedding-photographer Hi all and welcome to my new blog. I've been super busy over the last few months with gorgeous weddings at The Rochford Hotel near Southend, Hedingham Castle, the stunning Prested Hall in Kelvedon and Butley Priory in Woodbridge, Suffolk. There are going to be some fantastic sneak peeks coming up so stay tuned!

Over the coming months I shall be developing my new blog series involving different aspects of the wedding industry from flowers, cakes, and music to the brides and grooms reflecting on their own wedding days. I’m certain you will find these posts insightful and will help to provide great guidance for couples who are organising their wedding days. If you would like to be involved and have a great story to tell, then contact me!

Today’s blog is going to be something a little different. It’s all about ME!

Whilst developing this new blog series I’ve had loads of ideas about how to move my business forward and make it more dynamic and interesting, then I had a “light bulb” moment. There are three things that customers look at when booking a wedding photographer. 1: Their photos 2: The cost (packages etc.) 3: Who is the photographer?  

When I got married 8 years ago, I never met my photographer; in fact I couldn’t even remember his name. When I started capturing weddings myself, I made a conscious effort to ensure all my customers knew who I was, and I knew all my customers! Sounds simple doesn’t it, however you would be surprised at how many people have spoken to me about their experiences when they got married, and how even on their wedding day professional people in the wedding industry did not know their customers name and vice versa. On every wedding booked with me, I conduct a personal consultation. This means couples get to know me, and get to tailor the pictures they wish for the big day. I have always wanted to make my business customer focused, and I want couples to feel comfortable with me. So………….let me take you through a brief history of Dale Zimmermann Photography and the man behind the lens. Enjoy!

It all started on March 31st 1978……….that’s right one day before April fool’s day. My parents Glynis and Mick were proud as punch (of course why wouldn’t they be!) My first memories of my childhood were of my first house in a little village called Wix, near Manningtree in Essex. I loved this house, especially the garden, which was ENORMOUS, and the Tree house my Dad made for me, even though there was not one Tree in our garden! I attended Spring Meadow primary school which I loved. I was a spotty lanky lad who loved sports especially running and swimming and I was actually quite good, regularly running for the school in the local sporting events. I am also still friends with some of the students that I attended with!

When I left high school I attended Suffolk College and graduated with a Media and Cultural Studies Degree course. I loved this course as it incorporated two things I loved……film studies and being creative with TV and Video production. This was of course before the days of digital media with Cameras. Like many graduates I had no experience doing anything so when I left, I of course didn’t go into anything I studied for! Typical isn’t it. You spend three years of your life doing something you really enjoyed, and now the difficult part……WORK!!!

However, anyone who knows me will tell you that I love technology and one of my first memories as a youngster was of the top loading video player my parent’s had. That was home entertainment at its greatest! I can recall this was my first glance of movies which I love, and I’ll go to the cinema whenever I get the opportunity! The creation and imagination in film fuels my interest and artistry in photography, and gives me new ideas for wedding shoots, so anyone planning a Star Wars wedding, I’m your guy!  I would like to say that with age, my taste in movies has matured, not so! I love all kinds of movie's, however several will always be my favourites………The Goonies, Jaws, Superman the movie, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Back to the future to name a few. As you might know these movie's are from a particular genre which encapsulate the themes of light and love over dark, and all that is good in humanity. Perhaps this is why I love being a wedding photographer as weddings are the epitome of the commitment to love and capturing the moments on these days is a great privilege.

 

I have worked since I was old enough to do so, starting off on paper rounds, and assisting to local butcher, and then moving onto summer work doing baggage handling for cruise ships and baling straw and hay for farmers but my first “proper” job was with a clothing retailer. If anyone has worked or works in retail then you will know that it can be really hard graft, with working weekends etc. but there was one specific reason why this job was special to me……this is where I met my wonderful wife, Laura! Retail wasn’t really for me, and I moved onto a couple of different roles in the following years, however in 2003 I applied to work for an emergency service, and to this date still work there, but this is only part of my story……

Laura and I were married at the stunning Crondon Park wedding venue, Essex and like a lot of weddings, the day FLEW by and before we knew it we were sitting around the pool on our honeymoon in the baking heat of the truly amazing country that is Thailand! In the following weeks we received our wedding photos and my reaction was….they are nice……just nice. I didn’t at one point go WOW look at our wedding photos! These “okay” photos were distributed amongst friends, and so began the journey of taking photos for other people and prompted me to spend a bit of our wedding gift money on a Canon 450D – A DLSR camera…..and this was the beginning of my photography career, don’t worry, I didn’t spend it all, Laura got the boots she wanted too!

(One of the happiest day of my life)

I am a self-taught photographer. I learn best by doing, and for 12 months after my wedding I took my new camera out and took photos of everything, perfecting my skills with landscapes, macro work and the business of capturing photos of people. In this time, Laura and I discovered that we were going to have our first child which I was over the moon about and when he arrived we found were approached my numerous photographic business’s asking if we wanted pictures done of our child. The prices of these photos appeared to be remarkably high with very little product at the end of it. Despite reservations, we did have a couple of shoots with some of these photographers and we did encounter a few things. First : On one shoot they “photo shopped” my sons face so much he looked like a porcelain doll and it didn’t even look like him Second : Another shoot he had a bogey hanging out of his nose, they said “we don’t Photoshop anything!” I then decided I could do a much better job of it and took some photos of my own, which were infinitely better.

(My first EVER photo shoot of my eldest!)

(My first "official" photo shoot)

(My boys!)

A friend saw these pictures I took and said to me “would you take some photos of my friends’ children for a gift?” I have never looked back after this moment and I began to build my skills and portfolio as a photographer. Things then took a remarkable turn when several people I worked with were getting married and asked me if I would take some photos for them. My first wedding was just an evening shoot, and I got paid in burgers…..sounded good to me (unfortunately I cannot offer this to customers today)! I learnt so much from these informal jobs, not just about camera settings, but more about how to interact with people on their wedding day to get the best and most natural shots.

Things progressed swiftly and in the following 12 months I captured 3 or 4 weddings for friends I worked with, they then recommended me to their friends and so by the power of word of mouth advertising, my second vocation has progressed to a professional level, and over the last few years my photography and business has grown from strength to strength. I have never been so busy and it is all thanks to you that I am getting more and more enquiries which is fantastic.

(Here are some of my first wedding photos I ever captured)

So what are my plans moving forward? Well this is where things are going to change and develop. Several projects are in the pipeline that I will be telling you about in my new blog series, Essex wedding photographer: The Wedding series. These new projects are going to involve other wedding vendors like florists and DJ’s and I also have some exciting interviews with two of my previous brides and grooms sharing their experiences of getting married, so do stay tuned for that.

With so many photographers out there, I know that it is difficult to choose who will capture those special moments for you, whether it is a portrait shoot, or a wedding. I think it’s important that you know who is going to be involved in your event. A wedding photographer in particular will be around you all day, and it’s integral that you feel comfortable with them, and most important for you to know you can communicate easily with them. I am far from a shy person, however there will obviously be times when the photographer needs to “stand back” and let things happen rather than set it up and the candid shots can sometimes prove to be the favourites. A photographer should merge into your wedding day and bring out the best moments for you to keep and enjoy for years to come. I love this job and it’s my passion to provide the best service, with the best photos possible, and most of all, be me.

Thanks for listening and I shall see you all soon.

Dale

ESSEX WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER : A STUNNING PRESTED HALL WEDDING IN ESSEX. https://www.dalezimmermannphotography.com/blog/2017/12/essex-wedding-photographer-a-stunning-prested-hall-wedding-in-essex

Hi all and welcome to my latest blog!

The last few months have been SO busy and I am behind with my blogging. This is my last blog of 2017, but don’t worry as I have so much planned for 2018, including some exciting interviews and insights into other parts of the wedding industry. For my webpage, I am currently developing my bio so I hope you’ll all love reading about how I became a wedding and portrait photographer, so stay tuned and I guarantee there is going to be some great content to share with you all.

Warning! There may be some old photos of me included, so it will be worth your while having a look, if only to laugh at the fashion in the 70’s and 80’s.

Today’s blog is all about a wonderful couple called Laura and Gareth. I met Laura when she was a guest at another wedding I captured back in 2016. I was fortunate to be sitting on the same table during the meal and to say there was laughing is an understatement; I love to have a giggle with the guests at ceremonies, it’s what weddings are all about, that joyous celebration with friends and family. It wasn’t long after, that I was pleased to be asked by Laura and Gareth to capture their own wedding day in August 2017.

Earlier in the year I met up with Laura and Gareth to capture their pre-wedding photos, and we had such fun walking around capturing some great moments. Fast forward to the wedding day itself at the wonderful Prested Hall in Essex where I have worked before. Prested Hall itself is stunning and along with its gorgeous setting, the organisational aspect is second to none. Kathryn the wedding co-ordinator was always in full control of the day and makes everything run so smoothly.

The sun was beaming and the heat was creeping up, but there was a lovely breeze and a relaxed mood throughout the day, exactly what Laura and Gareth had wished for so all their guests would enjoy their celebration, (there was even beer pong organised for later that afternoon, into the evening!).

Laura looked simply stunning as she walked down the aisle and everyone had a smile on their face as she approached a rather dapper, but nervous looking Gareth. With the weather on side for the entire day, and the gorgeous sunset in the evening there was plenty of opportunity to capture some beautiful photos. I have just received their photo choices for their wedding album, and I can’t wait to start creating this in early 2018!

It was a complete pleasure to capture Laura and Gareth’s special day which was filled with smiles and laughter and seemed to go in a flash (sorry - photographers pun) It was not long until all the guests were busting some moves out on the dance floor before the day drew to a fantastic end.

I have to give a special mention to Simon Rogers Photography for helping me out on this wedding. Thanks Simon, it was great to work with you.

And finally, before I present the photo sneak peek, I want to wish all my customers and followers a very happy new year, and if you have upcoming nuptials, drop me a line for an informal chat, and I hope one day to capture your wedding and help make it as special as Laura and Gareth’s.

Thanks for your support, and I shall see you all in 2018.

So without further ado here is Laura and Gareth’s sneak peek.

Enjoy

Dale

ESSEX WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER : A GORGEOUS SUFFOLK WEDDING AT COPDOCK HALL. https://www.dalezimmermannphotography.com/blog/2017/5/essex-wedding-photographer-a-gorgeous-suffolk-wedding-at-copdock-hall Hi all and welcome to my latest sneak peek blog! 

The last few weeks have been crazy busy with three weddings captured and ready to edit, numerous wedding albums to create and many sneak peeks to show you, so keep those eyes peeled for upcoming wedding blogs. 

Know of anyone getting married? or are you after some photos of you and your family? I do have very limited availability for Weddings for 2018 and portrait shoots for 2017 and 2018. Don't hesitate or be shy get in touch. 

Are you into Social Media? In the last few weeks my Instagram has exploded and if you want to see any photos you cannot see anywhere else, including a few of me, then head over via the link on the website. I am still on Twitter and Facebook so check those out via the links. 

On Saturday I had the pleasure of capturing Laura and Ryan's Wedding, and what a gorgeous day it was. After a few spots (and down pours) of rain to begin with that sun came out and it was stunning. There were a few nerves in the morning, but they subsided when Laura received a fantastic surprise from Ryan in the form of some "Killer" tickets. Laura's face was a picture! Well done Ryan, you earned from brownie points for that. 

It was apparent that Laura and Ryan's friends and close family were an important part of their lives, and the groomsmen and bridesmaids all played their parts supporting them during the day. Its safe to say they were all looking forward to this day as much as the lucky couple, and there were a few tears.

The day continued when everyone arrived at the gorgeous Copdock Hall Wedding venue in Suffolk. It was a lovely service, and Ryan did not stop smiling......all day. It was clear that Laura took his breath away, and he felt like the luckiest man. Laura looked stunning!

There were a few surprises still in store for Laura, especially during the best man speech when a short message made her day! There were a few screams from the ladies. 

Congratulations to you both again........So here it is, my latest sneak peek. Enjoy!

ESSEX WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER : TRACEY AND STEVE'S WEDDING AT THE OLD RECTORY, ESSEX. https://www.dalezimmermannphotography.com/blog/2017/5/essex-wedding-photographer-tracey-and-steves-wedding-at-the-old-rectory-essex Hi all and welcome to my latest sneak peek blog!

This is a very special sneak peek, as I have known Tracey and Steve for many years, and I was very flattered when they asked me to capture their day. It was early start with Tracey being pampered and this gave me the opportunity to catch up with Tracey. It was not long before there were a few chuckles, as if anyone knows Tracey she likes to laugh and smile, and this did not stop throughout the day. 

It was not long until the ceremony began, and Tracey shed a tear (or two) as she walked down the aisle.  Steve looked so proud as they stood together, exchanging vows. Tracey's family and friends all said how stunning she looked, as I am sure you will all agree with the following photos. 

The day flew by and the sunshine even reared its head later in the day, giving the children time to go and burn some energy outside. 

After a heart warming speech from Steve and a hilarious speech from the best man, the evening guests soon arrived, leading onto the first dance. 

It was a gorgeous day, and it is with great pleasure I present this sneak peek. Congratulations Mr and Mrs Syrett.

ESSEX WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER : A STUNNING WEDDING AT GOSFIELD HALL, ESSEX. https://www.dalezimmermannphotography.com/blog/2017/5/essex-wedding-photographer-a-stunning-wedding-at-gosfield-hall-essex Hi all and welcome to my latest blog! Its been a few months since my last, and this is due to being SO busy. Thank you to everyone who has been recommending me as I have never been busier! 2018 is already filling up so contact me to save disappointment. Over the coming months I shall be creating more and more sneak peeks for you all to view and see the stories of the people I capture. There is so much to see and I cannot wait to show you, so stay tuned. 

Are you into Social Media? In the last few weeks my Instagram has exploded and if you want to see any photos you cannot see anywhere else, including a few of me, then head over via the link on the website. I am still on Twitter and Facebook so check those out via the links.

So onto my latest sneak peek. When Olivia and Jamie contacted me, they said they wanted a photographer who could capture natural photos with a creative flare, they then explained that they was getting married at Gosfield Hall, Essex. This is an absolutely STUNNING wedding venue. I was extremely excited about capturing a Wedding at Gosfield Hall, Essex, and my mind was going crazy with what I could capture on their day. 

Olivia and Jamie's special day was here before we knew it, and I spent the first couple of hours with the Bridal Party, Olivia, Paulina, Grace, Jade, Kellie and Sasha. This was an eventful time, with a lot of laughter! They all looked stunning, even more so after being pampered by the excellent Emma Walker from Emma Walker Hair, Carly Williams from Carly Williams Bridal Hair, Lucy Payne from Makeup by Lucy Payne and Sywia Kocuj from Million Dollar you. 

I then spent some time capturing some important aspects to the day like the flowers and the cake. A special mention also to Carol (for the gorgeous cake) and Debbie from Busy Bees Floristry on creating and producing such beautiful work. 

Before we knew it the ceremony had begun, and Jamie did not stop smiling as his soon to be wife walked down the aisle (not before their son Archie nearly stole the show!). The day flew by and it wasn't long before the cake was being cut and the first dance (thanks to Tim the DJ from Essence Music) was upon us.

It was a gorgeous day, and the following is just a sneak peek.

ESSEX WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER : AN ESSEX FAMILY PREPARES FOR THEIR HOUCHINS WEDDING. https://www.dalezimmermannphotography.com/blog/2016/11/essex-wedding-photographer Good morning all and welcome to a very special sneak peek! Today's photos I captured a several weeks ago in a local park in Braintree, Essex. Julie, Luke and their gorgeous children met me to get just have a few photos taken before their special day which is now only just over a week away! I was also lucky enough to meet the most perfect soft toy giraffe.......perfectly named giraffe. It was not long before they were trying to steal the limelight. I had to make sure they weren't photo bombing while I was snapping away. They got their 5 minutes of fame though and I couldn't resist including them in this sneak peek.

I cannot wait to shoot their wedding at the Houchins wedding venue, Essex.  I love this venue, and its going to be a fun day.

So here you have it, Julie, Luke and family in my latest sneak peek. Enjoy.

ESSEX WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER : A STUNNING GREENWICH WEDDING IN LONDON. https://www.dalezimmermannphotography.com/blog/2016/11/essex-wedding-photographer-a-stunning-greenwich-wedding-in-london Hi all and welcome to my latest sneak peek! Busy busy busy! I have not stopped in 2016, and with one more wedding fastly approaching I wanted to get a few more sneak peeks in before the end of the year. Over the next few days I shall be sharing a photos of a pre-shoot for Julie and Luke and their gorgeous family, before their big day which is under two weeks away now.

So onto this stunning Greenwich wedding. What can I say about this gorgeous day? I loved capturing it! Steph and Pete are two of the most genuine, nicest people I have met doing this job over the years. The two of them, along with their family and friends made my job very easy, and their engagement shoot several months back I still get comments about how natural they look. These two were clearly made for each other. Their wedding was in the Chapel of St Peter and Paul in Greenwich, and what an amazing venue it was! It was also a lovely warm August day, so the sun was shining bright. The sunshine complimented the stunning dresses the bridesmaids were wearing. They looked amazing.

After the wedding the reception was held at the Trafalgar Tavern on the Thames, and this gave us an opportunity to capture some truly unique photos, including a fantastic shot of Steph in her wedding dress. I nearly broke my back moving the funiture, but it was worth it!

So here it is, Steph and Petes sneak peek! Enjoy.

My wedding diary is very close to being full, so if you know of anyone getting hitched, get in touch.

Well last week I was lucky enough to capture Jess and Dom's special day at the Fennes wedding venue in Essex. It was a chilly start to the day, however that sun was shining brightly and warmed up enough so we could take some gorgeous photos outside.

The entire day was filled with smiles and laughter from the entire wedding party. It was such a stunning day,  so here is a gorgeous sneak peek at Jess and Dom's family shoot and moments from their wedding day. Enjoy.

Stay tuned for another sneak peek coming very soon.

ESSEX WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER : SARAH AND CRAIGS SPECIAL DAY AT LEEZ PRIORY, ESSEX. https://www.dalezimmermannphotography.com/blog/2016/10/essex-wedding-photographer-a-gorgeous-day-for-a-wedding-at-leez-priory-essex Hi all and welcome to my latest sneak peek! I am really behind with these at the moment due to being so busy! My 2017 DIARY is PACKED in with Weddings, and I am so lucky to get recommended by so many of you so thankyou.  I have very limited space left so if your getting married or know of anyone then message me!! I still have two more weddings before the end of the year and numerous portrait shoots, so stay tuned for some more gorgeous photos.

Well back in July I was fortunate to capture several weddings and one of them being Sarah and Craigs special day. This wedding was arranged in 3 months! These must have been the craziest few weeks of their lives, and I was lucky enough to be involved in that, which was a real pleasure.

The day soon came along, and boy was it a warm one! That sun was bright and there was hardly a breeze at all! Sarah and Craig had some fantastic friends and family that lapped it all up, and even the kids loved playing the games outside. Talking of friends, Sarahs bridesmaids are possibly the craziest people I have ever met at a wedding (thats saying something!), and I knew they were going to be fun, and boy they kept me on my toes.

It makes my job so much easier when you are accepted as one of the guests on a wedding day, and the entire wedding party were fantastic.

Sarah and Craigs day was gorgeous and I captured some stunning shots, including a few of their daughter Mckenna, who likes to strike a pose. I just want to congratulate them and wish them all the luck for the future.

So here you have it, my latest sneak peek. Enjoy.

Oh and just one other thing to mention......................a big congratulations on the announcement that Sarah was now pregnant! I bet Mckenna and friends and family are over the moon! All the best.Oh and just one other thing to mention......................a big congratulations on the announcement that Sarah was now pregnant! I bet Mckenna and friends and family are over the moon!

ESSEX WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER : A STUNNING ESSEX WEDDING. https://www.dalezimmermannphotography.com/blog/2016/10/essex-wedding-photographer-a-stunning-essex-wedding Hi all and welcome to my latest blog!! Its been a couple of months since my last blog and BOY have I been busy! This will be one of many sneak peeks coming up over the next few weeks, so stay tuned. My 2017 diary is nearly full and 2018 enquiries are coming in thick and fast.

Back in July and had the pleasure of capturing Gaby and Robs special day and what a day it was! When I met the two of them it was clear it was going to be a packed day when they said there was going to be roughly 180 guests! WOW! 

The church was packed with friends and family on their special day and when the party moved to The Boatyard in Leigh-on-sea (a stunning venue) it was not long before everyone started having a good time with dancing and singing! There were smiles all around from everyone, including the children who had access to some scrummy sweets! YUM! The cake was stunning aswell and also included a personal touch having a famous Star Wars character on top! Being a fellow geek really I appreciated it!

It was a great day had by all and here is just a sneak peek of it.

 

Enjoy

ESSEX WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER : REAMES WEDDING SNEAK PEEK! HOUCHINS WEDDING VENUE, ESSEX. https://www.dalezimmermannphotography.com/blog/2016/7/essex-wedding-photographer-reames-wedding-sneak-peek-houchins-wedding-venue-essex Hi all and welcome to my latest sneak peek! Well what can I say about this gorgeous wedding? It was amazing. Weddings like this are the reason I love capturing them. The day started for me when I arrived at The Houchins Wedding venue, Colchester, Essex, and I was greeted by the one of the brides sisters (and bridesmaid) Courtney, who throughout the day liked to organise things, that is until she had a few glasses of alcohol and then Chelsea's other bridesmaids were mobilised. Thanks you guys :-) Chelsea and her wedding party were being pampered by having their hair and make-up done whilst the children were watching TV and playing downstairs (although it did become suspiciously quiet at one point.....never a good sign!) 

Before we knew it the grooms party had arrived and were looking to see if the bar was open. Time then flew to the ceremony and the rain held off just enough so Chelsea and her 7 bridesmaids could walk down the aisle. Chelsea looked stunning in her wedding dress and I am sure you will agree when you see the upcoming photos. After the ceremony there was plenty of time for a few formal photos, before the wedding breakfast and the speeches, and my goodness there was laughter during the best-man speech.

The Houchins wedding venue was a gorgeous setting for the day and I am looking forward to capturing another wedding there in November.

The rest of the evening was filed with celebration and there was even time for some more photos.

So without further ado here is Chelsea and Martins sneak peek. Enjoy.

ESSEX WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER : A SPECIAL ENGAGEMENT SHOOT IN GREEN PARK, LONDON. https://www.dalezimmermannphotography.com/blog/2016/6/essex-wedding-photographer-a-special-london-engagement-shoot Hi all and welcome to my latest blog! 

Its been a few weeks since my last blog, but I have been busy with three weddings and other shoots as well. I also announced the winner to my latest competition....congratulations again Emily Holmes! 

Today's sneak peek is for Steph and Pete who are getting married in Greenwich this August and we spent a couple of hours in Green Park, opposite Buckingham Palace the day before The Queen's birthday. It was a gorgeous day and there were loads of people out enjoying the sunshine. It was difficult to resist the ice cream counters I have to say! Both Steph and Pete were very relaxed and happy to get involved which clearly shows. I can't wait to capture their day. 

It wasn't long before we stumbled upon some gorgeous places to capture great moments between them! I love places like this where it seems every corner you turn there's another gorgeous setting!

So without further ado here is their sneak peek! Enjoy.

ESSEX WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER : A GLORIOUS WEDDING AT THE LAWNS, ROCHFORD, ESSEX. https://www.dalezimmermannphotography.com/blog/2016/5/essex-wedding-photographer-a-glorious-wedding-at-the-lawns-rochford-essex Hi all and welcome to my latest blog. Its been a crazy few weeks, with weddings for 2016 fully underway, and more and more enquiries for 2017. I have also announced a fantastic competition to win a free portrait shoot on Facebook, so don't miss out.

So onto my latest sneak peek! A little over 2 weeks ago I attended The Lawns to capture Katie and Ian's day. The weather was glorious for the entire day, with lovely blue skies and white clouds. I don't think I have ever been in such a relaxed environment with Katie and her Bridesmaids getting ready. Ian arrived with his best man and ushers right on schedule (Ians schedule of course).

The day flew by and before I knew it the groom was giving his speech........which had the funniest slip up I have heard for sometime.

This was a fantastic day and I wish Katie and Ian all the best for the furture.

I also want to say thankyou to Miranda from Photography by Miranda for assisting me on this day.

So here it is my latest sneak peek. Enjoy.

ESSEX WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER : A WEDDING WITH TEARS AND LAUGHTER IN WESTCLIFF ON SEA, ESSEX. https://www.dalezimmermannphotography.com/blog/2016/4/essex-wedding-photographer-a-wedding-with-tears-and-laughter-in-westcliff-on-sea-essex Hi guys and welcome to my latest sneak peek blog, and what a treat you are in for!

The people who know me, know I love capturing weddings, and people who don't know me they ask “don’t you find that stressful?” Well the simple answer is that it can be stressful, but only if you let it. I love weddings, because I love being around people, and what a group of people I met yesterday! Nico, Craig and their family and friends made my job so easy. There were tears and laughter, from the family and friends throughout the day, from stories the best man gave to a slight misunderstanding on table 4 about someone else with the name Dale………you know who you are, Hannah, Katy and Laura! There were so many opportunities to capture moments, and the rain and cold didn’t stop anyone getting outside to get the group photos. Every time I finish a wedding I am the most impatient person, and want to edit the photos straight away. This wedding was no different! It’s clear that Nico and Craig are made for one another, and may I take this opportunity to congratulate you both again. 

Here is your sneak peek.

Enjoy everyone.

One to watch there...........

This was my first time at Houchins Wedding Venue, near Colchester Essex and I have to say it was gorgeous. Roll on July for the Wedding. So here it is my latest sneak peek! Enjoy.

ESSEX WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER : A GORGEOUS ENGAGEMENT SHOOT IN OLD LEIGH ON SEA, ESSEX. https://www.dalezimmermannphotography.com/blog/2016/2/essex-wedding-photographer-a-gorgeous-engagement-shoot-in-old-leigh-on-sea-essex Hi all and welcome to my latest blog post! I have been very busy these past few weeks with bookings and enquiries for 2017 and 2018. Its great to see you guys who are getting married nice and organised! I still have a few places for 2016 available for weddings, and don't forget I also do family shoots! Getting away of studio shoots, I like my portait sessions to be natural and in the "real" world of peoples lives. Get in touch now, to save 15% on both wedding and portrait packages booked before 31/03/2016!

Anyway, onto todays sneak peek. When I first met Nico, she said that she had a studio shoot with her now fiance Craig a while ago and it just wasn't their "cup of tea". Whenever I arrange engagement shoots I always say go to a place thats important to you! This is when Nico and Craig said that they love to go on walks along the seafront in old Leigh on sea, Essex. Well last week we spent some time along the front with the wind blowing and it wasn't exatly the warmest day either! That didn't stop these two grabbing the opportunity to get some fantastic natural photos. It's always nice to get complimented about your work and when Nico told me that the "adored" the photos..........that was enough for me. So here they are - Nico and Craigs sneak peek. Enjoy.

ESSEX WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER : AN ESSEX FAMILIES NEW ADDITION! https://www.dalezimmermannphotography.com/blog/2016/2/essex-wedding-photographer-an-essex-families-new-addition Hi all and welcome to my latest blog. Its been a few weeks since my last, but I have still been busy booking upcoming weddings and family portrait shoots etc. I still have limited spaces for bookings for 2016, and my 2017 diary is open. 

Its not very often I get to capture newborns, but it was a real pleasure to be recommended by a friend to capture some images of her grandson who was born early January. I normally have to travel out of Braintree, Essex for work, however on this occasion it was just around the corner. 

I have to say that little Ralph was a joy to capture. It really helped that both Sam and Lucy were very relaxed and went with it. There were only a few moments when he cried, but once he was fed he was good as gold. Whenever I do family portrait shoots, I always try and make it look and feel natural.

So here you have it, a little sneak peek for you all. Enjoy.
