So far the winter weather in Devon has been good for my couples with mainly dry days, if a little cold. However when you photograph as many Devon Weddings as I do, at some point the luck is going to run out. In my 18 years as a wedding photographer and photographing over 1000 weddings I have never had a wedding ruined by the weather. This is the case with this wedding, yes the weather was awful all day but that did not stop the fun. For this image I ran up the stairs having set up the bride and groom on the stairs. I then positioned the camera on the hand rail for two reasons. One it's the start of the image, leading the eye around the stairs down to the bride and groom and the Christmas tree. The second reason was to help keep the camera very still as there was very little light. Despite the very slow shutter speed I was able, with good camera technique to capture this wonderful pin sharp wedding photograph.
