Twenty Third Collection
This particular image created against pure white wall using Color gels to create some dramatic mood . Bridal couple Meha & Joel first met during some dance party some years ago. Their passion for dance brought them together. So I created dance pose to tell their love story in Resort , where reception was taken place.
The story with this photo is simple. It was long after the ceremony and family formals and it had grown ominous outside as the rain started coming in. But the reception had started and dancing was crazy, but as soon as I saw the rain, I looked at Olivia (the bride) and said "Do you want to take a rain photo!?!" she said Yes!!! very excitedly. I exposed for the sky and used the 16mm to get the building fully in the back and pumped in the flash from behind to freeze the rain :)
Taken at the beautiful Halstead House at the wedding of Lucy & Mark. These guys were totally in love and allowed me to take them out for a couple of portrait runs in between capturing some amazing moments of their day. We did some creative shots with flashes, fairly lights and even managed to get them out when the rain started, but this particular image was so simple and used nothing but natural light and it really captured their love story.
The beach is a place that gives you the opportunity to do what you want. David and Llum are considered travellers, and we agree that getting married has been the best start of a trip where they will have to get on the train holding hands and they will be taken to the next station. This photo says it all.
Haley-Kate and Rafael's engagement session began at the Georgia Aquarium where this soccer player had proposed to his Atlanta Falcon cheerleader girlfriend. It wasn't long before the clouds began rolling in and just as they were finishing volleying his soccer ball back and forth, the thunder made its presence known. Nothing could stop these two from enjoying every last minute of their afternoon together though and this steamy shot was the result!
Emi & John’s wedding in the Amalfi Coast was special for so many reasons. Emi wanted some portraits to which she would be able to remember the feeling of not only her day but also the location. As we walked the streets of Ravello high up in the mountains looking over Amalfi I noticed this stunning view. The other side of that wall is a sheer drop! But Emi & John were more than keen to take up pose and frame this perfect view.
Lisa and Brian got married in Dublin on New Year's Eve. They were slightly worried when it started to rain. I told them, don't worry, I want you to look at your images and be happy it rained.... They didn't really understand what I meant. Now they do!
We captured this image of our bride and groom on the grand staircase of Peel Manor House, just south of Perth in Western Australia. We love that the black and white adds to the old world charm of the staircase. The shot was made extra fun as it was captured whilst the guests all watched as the staircase is in full view from the reception seating. Needless to say, our bride LOVES this image - and so do we.
This is the first time I've ever stayed right until the end at a wedding.
I had to wait until nearly everyone had drifted away so that the music died down and I was able to communicate with them. I saw the shot the day before when I met them, so it had to be done, and I had to wait but worth it in the end!
This photo was probably the most challenging of my career so far. The bride had expressed her want for one last shot before the night was over. I suggested we shoot in front of the Hindu temple where the ceremony was held at. Unfortunately after several delays the temple shut down all of the lighting creating a near pitch black environment. I told the bride that we would not be able to get her shot because of nature of the environment. The look of disappointment in her eyes made me reconsider. I grabbed every speedlight me and my assistant had and setup a 5 light shot using only cell phone led lights to see in the dark. After a few test shots I brought the bride and groom out, posed them, and captured this beautiful image of my brides piercing incredible eyes.
Canon 6D, Canon 24-70 f/2.8 L II, ISO 800, f/4.5, 1/160 and 5 yongnuo speedlights at various power settings.
The weather was great, groom and bride having so much fun ready to tie the knot on the way to the chapel. Just a candid moment captured in time. The conversation they had I don't know, but the picture tells the story of their history and love for each other.
Shot at the beautiful Kimberley Hall in Norfolk, we'd captured a few more "traditional" Bridal Party photos making the most of the incredible skies & georgous view before the someone suggested jumping to get down from the wall.
Think it's probably safe to say that Rosie & her bridesmaids were not quite as up for it as Ben & his groomsmen, but an absolutely sterling effort was made by all! Works for me :)
Full marks for an awesome jump!!
A gorgeous sunset at the Isla Gladstone Conservatory in Liverpool for Michael & Michelle's spectacular wedding. This was one of the last photographs of the day, just after the first dance as the sun went down and left us with such a gorgeous backdrop.
Sometimes you never know what you'll find unless you venture out into the unknown. That's how this image was captured. A short walk along a path near the wedding venue we found this bridge and this is what we got. Classic and timeless; just like the love shared between the couple.
