After months of discussions, thoughts and testing, I'm excited to have now launched the brand new Steve Gerrard Photography website. And the new blog is now a major part of it. For that reason I will (I promise!) be updating the blog more often than ever. You can now find the blog here >>> NEW BLOG
Evelyne and I are really pleased with the new site and would like to thank Chris Garrett for all his work designing it for us.
Please have a good look around when you have a few minutes. There's plenty to see. If anyone has any problems viewing any part of the site please let us know.

On Monday night I was up in Manchester to shoot metal bands In Flames and Gojira. I'm a massive Gojira fan so it was a pleasure to meet the guys from the band and I'm pleased to report they're super-nice. Guitarist Christian even gave me a free Gojira shirt. The band took a few minutes for me to take some portraits of them. Here are some of my favourites...
I'm not such a big fan of In Flames but they were also great guys to hang out with and sorted me out with some beers. We also got some great photos of them before the gig..
This afternoon I'm off to Nottingham to meet with underground Legends, The Melvins. I'll post photos here asap..

I know, I know!! My blogging has slacked again. Things have been so busy, blah blah blah...
But here's the thing... Next week sees the launch of the brand new, super-slick, all singing, all dancing Chris Garrett-designed, funkadelic Steve Gerrard Photography website. The blog will be a major part of the new design so I am going to be updating it all the time. I promise! No, really!
Just check back next week and see the new-look site for yourself.
In the meantime, I've been meaning to blog Becky & Paul's wedding for a while. They were married last month and had their reception at The Belfry. Their wedding was fantastic for several reasons... It was relaxed, great fun, the weather was glorious, had super-friendly guests, the staff at The Belfry could not be any better, but mostly because Becky & Paul are like our dream couple. We got on with them so well and they went out of their way to help us get great images for them. I believe we succeeded...
The night before the wedding Becky managed to cut her hand on a glass and didn't leave hospital until 4am. Here's the damage...
Paul sees his bride for the first time...
A few shots outside the church before heading to The Belfry...
Becky & Paul know I'm always trying to do something different with my ring shots so when we borrowed the rings Becky said, "I can't wait to see what you do". No pressure then...!!
Errr... that's dripping water...
Did I mention the weather?
After dinner it was time to escape with the couple...
We love rule-breakers ;)
Becky you superstar!
First dance... and a shared moment with Dad...
And later we escaped again and used the inside of the venue, along with our video light...
Seriously guys, Evelyne and I had such a good day with you both. Thanks for having us there and we wish you every happiness for the future.
After the wedding I got a lovely email from Paul's mother saying "A big thankyou Steve for all your time and patience throughout the day you are a true professional at what you do, I cannot wait to see the photos the day was perfect, thankyou once again Pauls mum x"
...followed shortly after from an email from the couple saying
"Just a quick email before we fly off to say thank you for all your hard work and effort on our special day. We are so grateful to you both and we have had so many people come to us saying how good you were, not just with your photography but also how you interacted with the guests. We are so impressed with the amount of time that you spent with us and cant wait to see the outcome, we know its going to be amazing. Numerous couples who get married withing the next few years have asked for your details, I hope you dont mind but I have passed them on!! Becky from the Belfry was also very impressed and informed Becky that she would be unofficially recommending you !!! result !! "
Result indeed. Thanks guys.

There are some images which, even with my most amazing lens, I could never capture. Below are the first pictures of Elliott's future brother/sister who is doing well and expected to arrive into the world around 24th February 2009.
There's only one word for images like this - Amazing!
We cant wait to meet the new addition to the family. And when he or she arrives you can guarantee we'll be making a big noise about it right here on the blog :)
