Baby Photography – Phoebe

by Portrait Photographer, Mark Cox Photography. I love being asked to photograph a new baby.  A new addition to the family brings lots of fun and joy to all and this one was no exception.  This session took place some time ago and this little lady must be nearly 8 months old now.  However, looking through my work from last year for a "Best of" blog post I knew I had to share.  My baby photography normally takes place at home where the family and new baby feel comfortable. There are no time pressures on the shoot as we just [...]

A Summer Wedding with a Scottish Naval Theme….

by Taunton Wedding Photographer, Mark Cox Photography. I love a wedding!  Every wedding is a beautiful occasion with so many wonderful things; the bride, the groom, the dress, the rings, the flowers, the church, the venue, the food and of course the party!  All these variables go to make it a wonderful day.  When you add a Scottish theme with lots of Naval personnel you know you're going to get a stunner.  Furthermore, having the wedding reception and party in your own back garden makes it a real family affair. Neil and Kim had all of this and more.  The [...]

Haselbury Mill Wedding Photography by Mark Cox Photography

by Taunton Wedding Photographer, Mark Cox Photography. In May this year I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Tash and George at Haselbury Mill nr. Crewekerne.  A few months before I had photographed the happy couple for their pre-wedding shoot so I knew we were going to have a fun day!  The wedding day started with bridal prep and champagne at home followed by a quick trip to Haselbury Mill for the service and party!  This was the first time I had photographed at the venue but was in love with the location as soon as I arrived.  [...]

Family Portraits – Ruby Anniversary Present

by Portrait Photographer, Mark Cox Photography. Family Portraits are fun! Being able to capture the fun of a special family occasion such as a birthday, anniversary or just a family get together is a privilege.   The location does not have to be a studio.  In fact some of the best portraits are taken at a favourite location such as a park or on a walk or even at the beach!  As people feel comfortable in familiar surroundings they tend to relax and enjoy the experience of a family portrait shoot.  I recently met up with 3 families who had [...]

Pre-Wedding Shoot – Tash and George

by Taunton Wedding Photographer, Mark Cox Photography. Last Saturday I met with Tash and George for their pre-wedding shoot.  Not every photographer offers a pre-wedding or engagement shoot but I believe it has lots of benefits.  Firstly, not everyone enjoys being in front of a camera and so this session helps me get to know the couple better and for them to become a little more comfortable with having their picture taken. Secondly, although not in this case, if we are lucky enough to meet at the venue we can also run through possible locations we could use on the [...]

Luttrell Arms – Wedding Photography

by Wedding Photographer, Mark Cox Photography. I love photographing all sorts of weddings.  It does not matter whether they are large affairs for 200 plus guests or small intimate services for a handful of close family friends.   A recent wedding at the Luttrell Arms, Dunster was one of the latter - a very small affair for around 20 guests.  All weddings are unique and I consider myself to be in a very honoured position to be a part of a very special day for the bride and groom.  For Matt and Linda it was a special day with some close [...]

Fun Family Portraits – A Walk in the Woods with Belle, Gary and Louis

by Portrait Photographer, Mark Cox Photography. I love to make every family portrait shoot fun and this one was no exception.  I received the booking for the session all through my Facebook Page.  Following a series of messages, the time and location were set without even meeting the client as they lived in Australia.   The location was to be the beautiful Weston Woods near Weston Super Mare.  Having not met or even talked to the family on the phone before the shoot, I was a little apprehensive about how the shoot would go.  I need not have worried, Belle, [...]
