The New Southern Belle is a Beauty

A couple of years ago, I had the great privilege of photographing a wedding and reception for a couple who’ve been wonderful business contacts and now friends.  This took place aboard a party boat that set out from Richmond Riverside and cruised all the way to Hampton Court Palace and back again.  What a backdrop — one that changed every minute and was fantastic all along the way.

Recently the manager of the Turk Launches asked me to photograph the newly refurbished interior of one of Turk’s other boats, the New Southern Belle.  This is the first interiors shoot I’ve ever done that wasn’t a house, flat or workplace.  So I think I can add nautical interiors to my cv now.  It was just such a pleasure to shoot the inside of the upper deck, the exterior of the Belle as well as some of the details that make it so special.
