Might I take this opportunity to introduce myself.. I'm Gemma Ward.. lovingly nick-named Wardette. By utter coincidence, a Wardette is also beautiful little vintage box camera- and it's not a bad reflection of me and my style; mini, vintage and stylish but classic, with bags of character. So here is to an exciting new start in 2015.. A gorgeous new website, with all my wedding AND portrait work, and a new start to the company blog!
This blog will be a great place for me to keep you up to date on what I'm up to with my camera, where my travels are taking me, what beautiful loved-up couple I'm working with or stunning baby bump I'm photographing. I plan to share my wedding insights here too, tips and background and experiences I think may help people planning.. so even if we don't work together on photos, feel free to follow. It will also be an ideal opportunity to share 'behind the scenes' moments from my published shoots on locations and in studios, update you on when my work is out on the magazine shelves, and share my own inspirations and admired colleagues. I will also be posting sneak peeks from shoots, including weddings, for friends and family to see after the event..
It can also serve as an ace place to chat and swap ideas, via the comments boxes, and create our own little network of past, current and future clients, families, friends, magazines, venues and suppliers and other bloggers.. I'm excited about what we can create here! For me, all the best things are created in collaboration, plus I'm new to this and might need a little help.. so let's do this..
I'll leave you with a few pics of my camera name-sake, The Wardette, and me at work..
