Checking in...

Hi guys, just a little blog post to say hi and update you on some news!

Its been a busy few weeks for us in Leeds... after putting in an offer for a house in December and waiting FIVE months to exchange and complete we finally got all the keys!! HURRAY! We spent last weekend decorating and this weekend we will be moving, I'm so excited. However as weekends are usually my 'taking care of blog business' time, I haven't written or scheduled any posts and I'm not 100% sure when I'll be able to. The good news is that I have photos to share, just no time or probably wifi for a little bit ha.

In photography related news... and its exciting news at that! I've been featured in the latest issue of Artful Blogging magazine. In print and everything! How amazing does this photo of mine look as a spread, it makes me a bit weak at the knees happy haha. Check out the preview of the magazine here and if you're thinking of buying it, I would highly recommend it! As well as my feature (which obviously is worth a read lol) there are loads of gorgeous articles and photos, I've really enjoyed reading my copy. 

In other exciting film photography news, my blog has been featured on Peta Pixel as part of my blog friend Jim Grey's '49 film photography blogs worth following' post. If you love film photography as much as I do then definitely check out this list - Jim has put together so many great blogs, some I've been reading a while and some new to me that I can't wait to check out too. 

I really love being a part of the film photography community, so its really an honour to be featured and part of such a great collection of websites, I'm still so thrilled about it.

Hopefully it won't be too long until I'm back here with regular content, but for now I'll be on Instagram sharing my Britain in Focus inspired series of photos daily, so head over there if you're missing me and I'll see you back here soon.

An Early Christmas Present for you

I don't usually post on weekends but as its exactly two weeks until Christmas (eeeep!), I wanted to share a gift with you all - my annual freebie calendar download!

Following on from last years format which I really loved - this years calendar features photos AND inspirational quotes about photography. I also realised that over the course of this year I've taken a lot of photos that I really, really love, so I'm excited and happy to get this chance to share them with you in a more personal way rather than just photos on a blog. 

To shake things up, this year is a mixture of photo essays (4 photos together to produce a story of the location/day) and my favourite single photos of the year. I really love how it looks and I think even if I'm the only person to print it out and hang it up - I'm totally fine with that haha. However if you do like what you see... use the download button below and enjoy!! 

As always, thank you so much for reading, for looking at my photos and for taking some of your time to spend here in my little space of the internet - I've always said I have the best readers/friends through this blog and you guys have never proved me wrong!! 

Surprise!

So... I've been keeping a secret from the internet - partly because it wasn't just my secret to keep - but mostly because I wanted to surprise someone with it! If I'd had my way, the whole thing would have been a surprise - but it turns out - weddings need some pretty serious planning and other people need to know about it before hand...

Yup, I said wedding :)

Thomas and I are getting married - today - and I'm so excited!!

I've shared some sneak peak details on Instagram whilst we've been getting the venue ready and of course, taking film photos to share in the future - and we have a hashtag #thomasandrhianne which should hopefully fill with photos as the day goes along (though we're in Norfolk, the phone signal is questionable... but  pictures should emerge at some point we hope).

We also have the most amazing photographer for the day - Katherine Mager - and she's going to take some film photos for us (of course ha) as well as digital and I can't wait for those already! 

Wahhhh, I'm so excited, wish us luck and see you on the other side!! I'll be a MRS!

p.s. I've scheduled posts for the next few weeks :) but I'll be back in October!
