About Blue Orange Images
We’ve both been photographing weddings for the last fifteen years. We really enjoyed doing wedding photography together and eight years ago we made the decision that we’d photograph all our weddings together. Doing it like this means that we have a much better chance of capturing as much as possible of the wedding day. We think you’d find that having two wedding photographers works really well, there are two of us to set up group shots, this makes the taking of formal photographs, such as large groups and family group go very smoothly and a bit faster than with only one photographer. We are both able to keep an eye out for small details that may really make a difference.
I’m Edna and I will shoot you nicely! People are my passion and I’ve been photographing them since my early teens. People tell me I have an ability to put them at their ease, getting the best images of small and large groups is something that I do very well. Along with my husband John, I believe that we make a good photographic team. Whatever or whoever we’re photographing, whether it’s a wedding or party or a family, we always have the greatest respect for the feelings and wishes of everyone involved. We were both brought up and got married in Shetland, we moved to Watford in the early 1990s, and then to Abbots Langley (just north of Watford) in 2005.
I’ve been creating images all my life – as a child and teenager I always had a sketchbook and made scrapbooks. At the age of 16 to did an apprenticeship as a printer at a company called Nelson Smith Printing Services in Shetland, where I grew up and lived until I moved to Watford with my wife (and photography partner) Edna. My work at the printers included designing artwork and cropping and evaluating photographs for use in various kinds of printed material. I bought my first camera in my mid teens. When we moved to Watford in 1991 I went to West Herts College to do graphic & typographic design, part of the course was developing our photographic skills – I loved the photographic side of the course and spent much more time photographing and developing photos than the course required.
