A Beautiful Outdoor Wedding: Garthmyl Hall - Ness & Rich

A preview of images from the beautiful outdoor summer wedding of Ness & Rich.

We have absolutely had a blast working with our London-based couple, Ness & Rich. From our very first FaceTime chat we could just tell they were our kind of folk, super cool, with an epic sense of style (obviously, they picked the most epic ‘togs!)

How Going Old School With Vintage Lenses Taught Me To Be a Better Photographer - by Mr Twig

If you’re a regular here at The Branch then you will recognise one of our most used taglines ‘Iconic Vintage Photography.’ But what does this mean? Well, our images have always had a nostalgic look and feel to them - that’s one of our main USPs. In the early days this was created more so in post production using filters or ‘presets’ but, over the last 18 months or so, we’ve begun to develop a more subtle retro vibe created predominantly in camera, using actual old film lenses. 

Old school lenses can be adapted for use on modern digital cameras and the results have gotten us hooked. These tiny pieces of glass, some now more than 60 years old, create an authentic vintage look with built-in bokeh and vignette that is just extraordinary.

Talking Techy with Mr Twig - Rews Gig Photography

Talking Techy with Mr Twig - Rews Gig Photography 

Last week I had the opportunity to photograph up-coming female duo, Rews, at their sold out Birmingham show. If you’ve not yet had the absolute pleasure of the aural, pop-rock assault that is Rews then you need to a) finish reading this blog and b) click here.

On the night of the gig, Rews were absolutely phenomenal. I was blown away by the fullness of sound made by just two people on stage, and how close the live track versions sound to the album. But, hey, this is not a gig review, you came here for the photography right?
