And... Go! | Chloe Browne: London Wedding photographer


This for me, is a little piece of magic. I've loved this style of photography since I first came across Simon Pais-Thomas on Flickr not long ago. He creates eery floating shoes which look like someone has just stepped out of them, that your eyes want to and almost do believe.

The above is some recent work by
Denis Darzacq taken in a supermarket. Now I love a good supermarket as much as the next girl, presuming there isn't anybody else around of course, but the idea of leaping for joy and reaching for the stars down the aisles had never occurred to me until now. I'll see you down at Sainsbury's Local.

Dirty Little Secret... | Chloe Browne: London Wedding photographer

I've loved this blog, for so long.


I've often wondered just how real they are-so dark, so outlandish, at times so infantile. Logging in on a Monday to check the latest installment, I'm always stirred by something; the honesty or inventiveness, of these offerings.

In any case, I love it because at some point, the chances are they're real for someone, somewhere in the world.
Frank Warren, Man In Charge of PostSecret has made an appeal to the PS community, to buy the four books they've published in order to keep adverts off the site. I think it's a fair exchange.

Mine's in the post {secret}.

Wedding Bells... | Chloe Browne: London Wedding photographer

...are a-ringing. I've finally drawn-up a Save The Date to email, with the intention of printing and posting proper invites as soon as we're back from the other side of the world.


With just 7 months until The Big Day, looking for a wedding photographer has become exhausting.

I'm in love with Michele M Waite, who is positively fantastic-but she's having a baby around the date of our wedding. Both brilliant and at the same time, sad.

Also on my list of Photographers I Wish I Was is Mel Barlow who is utterly stunning.

I think it's time I thought outside the British Wedding Photographer box. I'm disappointed with the lack of ingenuinity, or maybe it's just the google results. I want genuine reportage. I can't 'smile for the camera', or rather I won't.

The quest continues... interview number 3 is lined up for this weekend. Wish me luck.
