Farmers Image Of The Week #340

I don’t know about you but I’m really missing photography conferences and shows. It’s crazy that at some points it felt like there were too many of them to choose from and now there are none. However, I am super optimistic now about 2021 and I am picking up the planning again for our Thrive conference in March. Yes, we will have to be very limited in numbers and yes it will all feel very different but I am determined that we will get photographers together to inspire them, refresh them and connect them to each other. I have missed doing all of that so much recently.

So it was lovely to read the story behind this delightful image shot in Brighton by the very wonderful Katie Rogers – Katie applied to speak at one of our Farmers Market events and this led to this utterly gorgeous shoot. With this particular shot, I love the symmetry, the colours, their outfits, and those adorable bouquets but most of all I love that connection to each other and how the happiness radiates from them.

Rebecca Carpenter Farmers Image Of The Week

What Katie said ...

“The story behind this image is a perfect example of how amazing the community at Photography Farm is.
I had met Steph (Stephanie Dreams Photography) last year at Farmers Market when she came along to my talk and we kept in touch. Steph has done some brilliant things since we met, one of which is starting to model with her partner Robynne.

Steph and Robynne were looking for some fun, minimalistic elopement vibe photos in Brighton, so we met at Brighton bandstand and had a wander around the town. We snuck down one of the side streets, it was a lovely warm evening, and I simply snapped them laughing and enjoying each other’s company. I think some of the most joyful photos from couples sessions are when they’re doing something totally everyday together.

When I went to blog this shoot, I thought it would actually be a perfect opportunity to bring some attention to the LGBTQ+ community, something that felt very natural as Steph also organises Love For All, an LGBTQ+ wedding workshop. It felt wrong for me to write something about the LGBTQ+ experience, so asked Steph for her experiences and opinion on what the wedding industry can do to help be more inclusive of the community.”
