Over the last three years we’ve shot a lot in our studio. It’s now time to say goodbye to this space, we’ll miss it but hopefully the next space will hold a whole new atmosphere of its own when we find somewhere right. Yus and Marc are two very expressive people and very much in love.  I offer couple portraits in the Cotswolds,  the area is stunning as you can see here from this Cotswolds post I did. I really do love the area. Having just purchased a 5×4 large format camera I’ll be shooting more in the streets and hills and hopefully showing the Cotswolds as it is, less idealised but still immense.

Some favourite moments from 2013

It’s been a brilliant blur of a year. I got married in the mountains of Mallorca in August, got inspired at the Paris Art fair, shot loads of brilliant weddings, each and every one of which I can say I found uniquely interesting to shoot, I also shot a lot of families, engagement sessions and babies and lastly we found out Sarah was pregnant.  Next year is going to be even busier.

Below are some moments I’ve loved. I have some to post up from my own wedding and time in Mallorca but they can wait for another post. This is the rest. Each year I’m gradually shooting more for myself mainly on film and next year I’m working on projects to take this further.  I’ve just joined Instagram and plan to post up various bits of the coming shoots on there. If you want to follow me  please do. The weddings however still rock my world. If you’re getting married this year I’d love to hear about your plans?

Lastly as always thanks to my brilliant clients for bringing me along, it was a blast and Sarah for keeping my feet grounded.


In the silence of your bones and eyes forgotten magic sits and waits for fire

Paris » davidjenkinsphotography.com - […] The last two years myself and Sarah have been to Paris. I’d never been before but this second time I felt like we found some nice places to check out for food as well the Paris art fair again. If you’re into art it’s well worth a trip.  A few images from the first trip reappear from my original post rounding up last year. […]

Helena & Christian engagement London

Last year the fab Helena and Christian took me to a second hand furniture shop and cured meat shop for an engagement shoot near where they live. I included a couple of images for my end of year round up from last year here.  This was the time we spent together.

Helena and Christian, as a couple rock; they’re fun and interesting in equal measure and we had a great time. To say I’m jealous of their little corner of London is understatement.  I’ll soon be blogging their brilliant wedding which I shot this year. Thanks for inviting me along guys.
