My day started at the bride's parents’ house a few miles away from the wedding venue. It was a great opportunity to capture some photographs of the bride and her bridesmaids getting ready before heading off to the wedding. As you can see I was also able to capture that magic moment when the bride's dad sees his daughter for the first time in her wedding dress.
After leaving the house I made my way over to the wedding venue which for today was Eastwood park. I met up with the groom and the best man and quickly captured some photographs of the two of them. We were soon joined by the ushers allowing me to capture this photograph of the four of them together. Yes, as you can see this is a staged shot, set up by me but as you can see it’s done in such a way that they look and feel relaxed.
Soon it was time for the service which was beautiful and emotional for all of those involved. I was able to capture lots of photographs with two cameras. One I was holding at the front and the other on a small tripod at the back of the room which I controlled with a remote trigger. As they left the ceremony I got a series of great images which this is one.
After the main event, it was time for me to get to work capturing lots of natural wedding photographs as the friends and family of the bride and groom congratulated them for the first time as a married couple. We then moved on to the formal photographs of the happy couple working from a list they had given me.
As we went into the evening it gave me the opportunity to capture a variety of photographs in different lighting setups. I love it when a couple has total faith in me and allow me to work my magic. This was the case at Amelia and Dan's fun and relaxed wedding. They just went with the flow. When I said the building looks amazing all lit up and would be great for a photo they went with me. When I said the sky was amazing, let's get a sunset photo they went with me. As you can see when I couple put their faith in me as their wedding photographer, the result is some amazing memories to last a lifetime.
