I am Kris Pendlebury of KJP Images which is based on the Wirral, UK. I have always had a love of photography but it’s only recently I have pursued it as a career. Having spent four years training as an Accountant I decided it wasn’t for me and after building up my skills and working part time during 2007 I became a full time photographer in April of this year.
I am still very new and have a lot to learn but my love of photography and the inspiration given by visiting sites such as this drives me to constantly improve and aim for higher goals.
I’ve been waiting to do a ‘Trash The Dress’ shoot for a while now but couldn’t find anyone willing to give it a go. Luckily I was contacted by Cheryl & Richard who had heard of TTD and wanted some photo’s taken which were a bit different to their wedding pictures.
Well, I think I gave them what they wanted. The shoot took place at a couple of locations, near the windmill and woods of Bidston Hill and at the beach near New Brighton lighthouse. It was a beautiful sunny day but very cold especially once we got in the water for some photo’s. Cheryl and Richard were brilliant and happy to do anything I asked which made it much more relaxing and shows in the photo’s. Despite the sand and salty seawater, Cheryl’s dress cleaned up well which show’s that you don’t have to really trash your dress to still have fun and get some amazing pictures.
