Good afternoon fabulous OMG readers! I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend so far and are making good use of this sunny London afternoon. I’m over the moon about introducing you to one of my newest sponsors, the fantastic Hannah and Toby of Red on Blonde Photography, whom you might have read about earlier this year when I featured this goofy, fun lovin’ engagement shoot. Today, I’ve asked them to answer a few questions so you can get to know them a bit better AND have the opportunity to get a whoppin’ £100 off your wedding photography! Amaze. Have a read and browse below and then go on over to the Red on Blonde website for more deets!
1. OMG Tell us a bit about yourself?
TOBY : Hi, I’m Toby – the very red half of Red on Blonde. I’m a photographer & music lover. I’m also a big time tea guzzler & Rich Tea dunker. My most treasured possessions are the Yashica Mat 124 camera Han bought for me in Prague & my guitar. I love Ryan Adams, Bob Dylan, mountain biking, long walks in the country and Newcastle (my home town). I love shooting weddings because I want couples to see how awesome they looked & remember how much fun everybody had.
HAN : Hello! I’m Han & I love weddings. I love all the little details, thoughtful ideas & intricate planning that make every couple’s day unique. I’m a huge romantic & ‘Father of the Bride’ never fails to make me cry! I’d love to have played June Carter in ‘Walk the Line’ – she’s talented, feisty & wears incredible dresses. My favourite cities in the world are Paris, London, Liverpool & Seattle. Before Red on Blonde I worked for ELLE Magazine in both Paris & London. I love Spitalfields market. I couldn’t be without Toby, coffee or red wine. It gives me butterflies every time my nephew, Sebbie calls me ‘Auntie Hannah’. I can’t wait to get a puppy (watch this space!)
2. Describe yourself in 3 words?
TOBY : Talented (Han said that), friendly & positive.
HAN : Passionate, energetic & creative.
3. What do you wish all couples knew about you?
Ermm……..Well we hope that our website gives people a pretty good insight into who we are & just how awesome your wedding photos will be with Red on Blonde 🙂 … but it’s hard to put into words exactly how much we care about our clients & how much work goes into every wedding we shoot…. & apart from that Toby eats at least 4 crumpets a day & Han has an unhealthy obsession about watching ‘Supernanny’ during breakfast.
4. If you could give brides 1 tip, what would it be?
ENJOY YOUR DAY! Everybody is here for you because they love you & they won’t care if your precision planning goes slightly awry & don’t forget to spend some time with the man you are marrying! P.S. You will look stunning without losing 2 stone.
5. If you could give grooms 1 tip, what would it be?
Get involved – this is your day, too.
6. Any wedding / wedding industry pet peeves?
Anybody who isn’t friendly.
7. Where do you see your business in –
In 5 years time we would like to have our own studio / workspace (with a studio dog of course) & be shooting weddings all over the UK & abroad.
8. Anything else you want to share?
We would like to offer OMG readers a £100 voucher towards their wedding photography with Red on Blonde. Please visit www.redonblonde.com/omg & state that you are an OMG reader when you make an enquiry. We look forward to hearing from you!
