Hanpicked Hotel Hendon Hall recommended my services to Jane and so she contacted me to shoot their up coming wedding. Most of my Packages include an engagement shoot within the price so we discussed a location that would be convenient. We agreed on Golders Hill Park in North London. If you have never visited the park I would highly recommend it especially if you have children.
I suggested that we had a relaxed attitude to the day and maybe bring along a bottle of wine or champaign. They arrived as planned with their lovely daughter and a bottle of Prosecco. I knew this was going to be a fun shoot!
I managed pretty easily to persuade Sophie their daughter to pose for a few images and like most kids she Jumped at the chance to be in front of the camera.
The weather was bright and sunny and the Prosecco helped Jane and Harald relax and enjoy their shoot!
The Wedding Blog will follow shortly, Thanks for reading.
Natalie contacted me after she visited my website and liked the way I used available light in some of my previous images. She was looking for someone who could capture her daughters christening that was planned to fall on an anniversary date that was special for the family. I was more than happy that I was available to shoot this special occasion for her.
The ceremony was to be held at St John The Baptist Greek Orthodox Church. This is one of my favourite church’s and typically like most church’s the decor is amazing.
The God Parents had chosen this beautiful christening gown along with accessories to go with it.
There was a butterfly theme for the day that was important in bringing the christening and the anniversary date together.
The ceremony went to plan and like most baptisms there was some anxious tiers by Letty I explained to the parents that this was normal and to try not to get to upset.
After the baptism there was a small party laid on at Skewd Kitchen restaurant based in Cockfosters.
They had done a great job of decorating a table complete with some cupcakes and decorations ready for the family to start the celebration.
It was a great day shared with a great family and so I left them to enjoy the occasion with fine food and drink. Little Letty had a long day and oblivious to the celebration’s around her she drifted in to a nice well earned sleep.
The full Slideshow of the day.

Yagmur is an aspiring model and when she contacted me looking for a studio and location shoot to help complete her modelling portfolio I was only happy to help.
We discussed a make up style shoot for some beauty images in studio followed by location photography. Yagmur let me roll with what and where I thought was best so I started the creative cogs turning so to speak. I knew exactly what would work well. I love working with rustic backgrounds and old looking buildings so I began my search and that’s when Wilton’s music hall popped out from something we call Google?
Once make up and hair was complete (by Amy Weems) I set up my lighting. I used a 2 strobe set up both with soft boxes. One was just above Yagmurs face and the other was below around half a stop lower to give me some fill light so I could get a soft flat looking image. With the final image (the black and white) I chose to have some light fall off for a more dramatic look.
Once the studio shoot was completed it was off to Wilton’s. I chose to travel light with a Canon 5d mk iii, Canon 70-200 f2/8L, Tamron 24-70 f2/8 and a single flash mounted to a monopod with a snoot attached (ok light ish). I knew the look I had in my head, a harsher spot light look, I love the high drama you can create with a single light and snoot, I think it’s because it’s the style of light you get in old black and white gangster movies!

Hi and thanks for visiting my blog, This is my first article that I have blogged about so I thought it would be fitting to introduce myself to you if you do not know me already!
My name is Demos Soupashis I am a freelance Photographer. I shoot Weddings, Christenings, Modelling and fashion for a clothing brand. I love what I do so sometimes I like to shoot at any given opportunity (hobby shooting I call it) so you may see the odd image of a landscape or something that really appealed to me also on this blog. I have a small studio based in South Woodford London where I conduct portrait shoots and Modelling shoots for aspiring models and their portfolios as well.
My first post is for a christening that was followed by a wonderful celebration at St Andrews Parish Hall in Southgate.
It was a beautiful sunny day for Little Leo’s Christening day, It was being held in St Barnabas Greek Orthodox church in Wood Green London N22
I love this church as not only was I also Christened there but so was my lovely wife many, many years ago, I might add!
This was more of a documentary shoot and respecting the Christening that was taking place i couldn’t get to close little Leo however we got some beautiful shots of the christening in a reportage style photo shoot. I have added a slideshow of the day here.
I set up a photo booth within the hall with some props and everyone had a blast sharing their images and trying to gain respect for the craziest pose!
Thanks for reading and keep an eye out for my next blog.
