Naomi Joy Photography: Blog en-us (C) Naomi Joy Photography (Naomi Joy Photography) Wed, 30 Dec 2020 12:05:00 GMT Wed, 30 Dec 2020 12:05:00 GMT Naomi Joy Photography: Blog 120 90 2020 Madness This Blog would have usually been filled with the smiles of weddings we covered this year. We are so sad for all of our clients that would have had brilliant days in 2020. We gave our clients the opportunity to move their booking at no cost, and we look forward to getting back into action in 2021! Naomi kept the portraits going, offering short 'doorstep' photography sessions to people within walking distance while the lockdown was in full swing. A few from the year are below. 

We wish all of our clients, past and future, all the best in 2021!

Phill & Becky A colourful, noisy, vibrant, loving wedding! The sun was particularly strong on this day, which lent itself brilliantly to some sunset photos. The venue had lots of great textures to work with, so there were loads of photos we were thrilled with.

Pete & Neena Pete and Neena's wedding started off traditionally enough, church, suits and cars. It then blew up in a riot of colour as the Indian section of the day took off. We have never left a wedding with so many pictures of dancing! :)

Andrew & Cat When the weather is so hot you get to have the speeches outside! What an absolute scorching day, but the icecream van, beach theme and lots of outdoor space fit perfectly! Cat looked incredible and the speeches were fantastic. The fish and chips for the wedding dinner were lovely too! A couple very much in love, all the best Mr and Mrs McFaul!

Mark & Gemma Mark and Gemma were amazing fun to shoot, and it was an honour to be a part of their day. Breadsall Priory was the venue, and the sun shone beautifully. Highlights included a spot of golf, the kids playing on the putting green, and the amazing Rhododendron bushes that were in bloom. I think you'll agree they both look amazing!

Staunton Harold Sailing Club - 40th Anniversary Amazing fun! There you go, everything summed up. The weather was perfect at the lovely Staunton Harold Sailing club for their 40th anniversary. I setup at the end of the bar, and after a while I was inundated!

Everyone was really up for having fun infront of the lens, and some of the shots are fantastic. Thank you for trusting us to shoot your event!

K.I.N.E.T.I.K. & Imperial K.I.N.E.T.I.K. & Imperial were supporting Ugly Duckling at the Junction. There are so many times at weddings where lighting can be just as tricky as at a live venue, so it was good to stretch our comfort zone! The fun that the guys were having on stage made it awesome to shoot, and we did some video that might appear soon as part of an edit from Agnes and Lupus.

It was awesome to meet Ugly Duckling! They were the most down to earth group I've ever met, with the most crippling tour schedule I've ever seen.

Love Derby - DCFC vs Watford FC This was great fun. I was asked to cover the Love Derby initiative that our church runs during some home matches at Derby FC. Food was collected to be distributed to the food banks around the city. It was WET, but it went really well. We were pleased to have some photos re-tweeted and used by DCFC themselves.

Mike & Gemma What a stunning wedding! It started out with James being taken on a tour of the estate by the owner! Mike and Gemma looked fantastic, and the venue was incredible. A cold and frosty day really set the portraits apart!

Photobooth Beta test - BEAN Caffé Derby Last weekend saw the debut and 1st test of our photobooth project. It's so new we haven't ever named it, let alone started any promotion or marketing yet!


James was really nervous as he had spent months putting it all together, but it performed really well, delivering prints from the back of the boothbox™ within 30seconds. 

The venue looked great in Laura and Lizzie's gold and snowflake decorations, and there was plenty of space for guests to experiment with the booth. 

Guests rummaged through the retro suitcase that Naomi donated from her collection, and were instructed by James to have 3 different looks ready.

The guests started to pile in after some initial shyness. One of the features that went down really well was the automatic upload to facebook, everyone enjoyed tagging each other looking silly!

Some valuable lessons were learnt from this test. We are really looking forward to getting this offered to our wedding clients at discount, to parties, social gatherings and anywhere else we can get people infront of the lens!

Some output from the night....

Joe & Heather I think it would be fair to describe this day as very Canadian. The hats, the flag, and Joe. A great couple who looked fantastic together in all the photos!

Jonathan & Rachel 2010 saw some pretty heavy snowfall, this allowed some great snow shots before the happy couple rushed into the warmth for their reception. Christmas weddings are great, the colour and decorations really adding to the sense of occasion.
