This is my first attempt at a Blog Site. I’ll use it to update all my readers (!) just what I’m up to at Chris Porteous Photography.
For a start I won’t be publishing photos from of all of my weddings this year. Not all bride and grooms are into social media and some just want their special day to be kept a little more private, and I fully respect that. So this blog will hopefully just give you a flavour of what I’m about and I’ll try not to make it too boring!
Had a great meeting with a lovely young couple on Saturday in the studio. Met them first at the Oriel Hotel open evening the other week and they have now booked me to photograph their wedding at The Oriel in August 2015. Seems a long way off but in terms of wedding bookings it isn’t really and we’re already getting enquiries about 2016.
I’m one of the “Preferred Wedding Suppliers” at The Oriel Hotel, St Asaph and I do enjoy photographing weddings there. Michelle, Sarah and all the staff really look after their wedding couples.
I spent the rest of Saturday setting up my new website which hopefully will go live this week. It’s similar to my current one but will be more compatible with smart phones and tablets than my current Flash-based site is.
Today I’ve been sheltering from the wind and occasional shower in my greenhouse! There are quite a few seedlings popping up now and that will keep me busy in the next few weeks transplanting them into pots. The days are getting longer and let’s hope they get stiller, dryer and warmer soon!
Here’s hoping for a great 2014!
