Finding wedding photographers in Birmingham https://nicolagotts.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/3/finding-wedding-photographers-in-birmingham wedding photographer birminghamFinding a good wedding photographer in Birmingham is not necessarily an easy task. There are so many of them out there, it’s important that you choose carefully and wisely. There are a number of steps that you can take to ensure this happens, and in this article we hope to be able to give you a couple of ideas that help you choose a wedding photographer in Birmingham easily, and therefore have a fantastic day with amazingly beautiful photos.

 

One of the first things you should do is ask around to find anyone that you know who has had a wedding recently. This is not hard to do, and you are sure to find that you know somebody that has been married recently, from work colleagues to personal friends. Once you have identified a few people who have had a great experience, ask about the photographer that they used, and find out what was the best thing about them. They may mention things such as they were friendly with wedding guests, or just took brilliant photos. All these are good reasons, but you won't hear them unless you ask. Some of the best wedding photographer experiences ever have only happened because a couple asked friends and family members for recommendations.

 

Then make a short list of the wedding photographers that you hear about. Call them, and ask to come to the office and see their portfolio of work. It's a crucial stage, because if you don't see their portfolio it doesn't make any sense at all to move forward with them. You are looking for photographers who shoot weddings in a way that you would like them to be shot. Imagine your perfect day, and how it should look in the photographs. This is what you're looking for with photography in Birmingham. Look at their work, and once you've found the right photographer it should become very obvious to you.

 

Then get to know the photographer, to the extent of taking them out for dinner. Some people do this, because you should have a good working relationship. Remember that this person is taking the photographs that will help define your marriage for the years to come. It's important that the photographs are perfect. Part of this is getting to know the photographer very well, and ensuring that you feel very comfortable around them.

 

Take the steps above and you should find that you have located the very best photographer for your needs. It takes a little time, so the earlier you can do this in your wedding planning process, the better.

From the Colour Cup to Colour Trophy
Today, it remains the most prominent hairdresser's competition in Britain.  In 1956, the L'Oréal Professionnel Colour Trophy held its first event. In the early days of L’Oréal Colour Trophy, the competitions main prize was called the ‘Gold Cup’ and the ‘Colour Cup’ was an additional prize within the competition. The potential of the Colour Cup quickly capturedhairdressers’ imaginations and this prize was evolved to today’s L’Oréal Colour Trophy.
In the early 50s and 60s the colour market was limited and the competition’s main objective was to promote professional hair colour. Before long the competition and market was growing. After London’s first Grand Final winner, Dawn Gloria Heaven, it became apparent that there was a wider potential for regional competitions. Cyril Ashley, Colour Trophy’sorganiser was keen to get all parts of the UK involved and by the 1960s there were hairdressers competing from up to 14 regional locations each with the ambition to gain a place in the London Grand Final.Time for a Change
In the early days, Grand Finalists had to show up at the event with their models fully prepared and the main show consisted of 20 well-known hairdressers preparing models on stage to up to 8000 people.
On a mission to make it more exciting than ever, in 1989 it was decided it was time for a change! With decisions made from the most influential hairdressers in the industry the Grand Final format was improved and aimed to make the competition have more commercial appeal to enhance the success for entrants. 
 Changing the way in which entrants could apply was the introduction of the Photographic entry form; increasing the competition and setting the standards high to win a place at the regional finals. The Grand Final was moved to a more intimate setting of the Grosvenor House; with an exclusive sit-down dinner format and more theatrical shows were added tomaximise entertainment and enjoyment of the shows. The introduction of celebrity presenters added not only more commercial appeal but gave the event a more iconic presence hosting a number of popular presenters including: Davina McCall, Cat Deeley, Joanna Lumley, Martin Kemp, Vernon Kay, Graham Norton, George Lamb, Sara Cox and Rick Edwards. Towards the millennium it was clear of a focus that the hairdressing industry was changing, the L'Oréal Colour Trophy was extended to create three additional awards focusing on ‘Hair Inspired by Fashion; L’Oréal Men’s Image Award, Young Colourist Award and The Mizani Afro Award.

 

Each year an exciting fashion show designer showcases a unique selection of their latest collection exclusively for the L’Oréal Colour Trophy Regional finals. But whatever the changes today it is still well and truly regarded as the ‘Vogue’ of hairdressing award ceremonies – fashionable, aspirational and premium with a unique format.

Kayla and Bryan’s Wedding https://nicolagotts.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/9/kayla-and-bryan-s-wedding We have many first steps in our lives. Our actual first steps. Our first day at school. Our first day of work. And most importantly, our first steps we take together as a married couple. As a photographer, I try to put myself into the shoes of the couple as they take these first steps to capture the emotions they are feeling. Which isn’t always easy because oftentimes nervousness is the overriding emotion when having photographs taken.

Romantic Ramblings https://nicolagotts.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/8/dolor-it-sum

Love blossomed early for Emily and Mark, but it took a circuitous route before finally bringing them back together. Growing up in the Michigan they were childhood classmates but lost touch with each other during college. Fortunately, they were reunited in Turkey when they literally crossed paths hiking in Cappadocia.

Now back together in New Holland, Michigan, we decided to take advantage of the local flora for their engagement shoot. It was a perfect, early summer day with an environment so relaxed it was almost as if I wasn’t there, and it shows in these excellent photos.
