Wedding Lanterns At Night

Chineese lanterns seem to have become quite popluar in recent years and with many couples opting for an extended coverage this year in particular has meant we are around to photograph events after dark on some weddings. I’m really pleased with these two. Digital photography and high iso capability has meant creating such a possibility and as cameras continue to improve so will their ability no doubt at low level light. Of course one needs a good operator as well

Wedding At Marble Hill House In Twickenham

What a busy, busy time at the moment. Two full days of weddings last weekend and an all day one yesterday. Just had a chance to look at yesterday’s and when I took this one below I got all excited knowing it had a lot going for it; well what I like about a good photo anyway. I love the light striking the faces. For me the light on the groom with his face half lit I find works really well for men and Alice has her face looking towards the window just out of shot which I find beautifying … Continue reading

3 Weddings In One Weekend

Well what a busy bank holiday we had with weddings on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Here’s a few from Sunday’s wedding. Wedding photography at Hever Castle is such a pleasure with it’s stunning castle and gardens. Weather was my ideal as well, overcast with cloud detail, not that flat white sheet we oftne get in the winter. We took a good mix of reportage and directed, here though although some reportage most are directed.

Bride & Groom In London

Sunday just gone rather than a wedding we went to various locations in London with the bride and groom as their actual wedding took place in June in Istanbul. We started off near London Bridge, then on to Regents Park; although that was packed so headed down to Hide Park, then up to Piccadilly Circus and walked from there across to Covent Garden. What a fantastic afternoon weather wise, must have been getting on for 26oC. I’m really pleased with what we got. Out of several hundred images here’s a few of my faves:

Becky At The Reception

This week we had one wedding on Saturday. The church ceremony was in Wimbledon and the reception at Hartsfield Manor near Dorking. This shot below jumped out at me on the initial edit of the photos. It’s had quite extensive Photoshop treatment although maintaining a photographic look and not ‘over-cooked’. Obviously to get a shor like this it has to be directed and a number of takes to get the swirl of dress and everything right.

My Weekly Faves 1st August

I’m going to start a new regular post of my weekly favorite pictures and this weekend I had three weddings to shoot. One on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. So a pretty busy weekend.

Anyhow the weather was pretty changeable this weekend. Friday was great, Saturday was wet … Continue reading

Wedding Photograph At Wotton House

Friday saw us at Wotton House near Dorking for my first wedding there. It certainly has some great features for orchestrated wedding photographs. These is a man made rock feature I spotted and just love the light coming through the whole in the feature. Looking for the light is what creating such photographs is all about and get the light falling on the subject exactly right, normally I am looking to get light in to the eyes as that’s the most important part and then posing the bride so as to give a natural shape.

Rain On The Wedding But A Great Opportunity

Not that I would ever wish for rain on a wedding but if the bride does happen to be outside when the heavens open I look at it as a rare opportunity to get a shot that is quite different to most of the wedding pictures this time of year. This is from Saturdays wedding 17th Jly 09/ It was fine most of the day but there was a half hour of rain just before the meal. and a couple of the other photos:

Sally & Kyle’s Wedding Photos At Eastwell Manor

It’ s been a while since I was last at Eastwell Manor and so it was a great pleasure to be there on Friday. The staff are very pleasant and made everyone very welcome. Sally & Kyle were very lucky to have had such a fantastic day with the weather as last week was pretty bad on the whole but Frday was exceptional. For us it was a very busy day starting at 9am in Woolwhich and then finally leaving at around 9.15pm but it was a great fund wedding to shoot covering the Chinese games in the morning although … Continue reading
