Last week here at the dluxe office we became aware that Valentine’s Day (and a couple of anniversaries) were creeping up on us rather quickly. In a panic and wanting to get our other halves something unique and special we asked on Twitter if people could help us with ideas for gifts that could be purchased in Leicestershire.
We were inundated with responses from businesses and individuals in the area, so we thought we’d share some of the really special ideas with you; such as this romantic photoshoot.
Gary Summers is the man behind Thurmaston-based SMD Photography, a relatively new business (launched on 1st July 2010) which specialises in high quality photography for a vast range of situations and locations. He doesn’t specialise in one particular area of photography but turns his skilled eye to all types of image.
Gary provides his photography services for £35 an hour and there is a minimum charge per shoot of £150.00 which covers up to the first four hours (photography and processing). Any additional hours are then charged at £35.00 each.
The Romantic Photoshoot which you can see in the gallery below cost the couple £150.00. It can take place anywhere that’s picturesque such as Bradgate Park, Beacon Hill, Belvoir Castle, etc… or even in a nice location close to your house. Although the photoshoot can take place at any time of of the day, Gary recommends starting 1 hour before sunset to really take the photos to the next level and make the most of the romantic lighting.
With clients like Leicester Tigers, next, LOROS and Bentley SMD Photography are going to be a name to watch for stunning photography in our region. But for now we’ll let Gary’s gorgeous images speak for themselves! If you want to get in touch to organise a photoshoot you can do so via the website: www.smdphotography.co.uk
