This is a picture taken at Katie & David's Wedding.. You could be anywhere in this artistic reflection picture - but Im actually shooting from a sand trap at a course course! As we went out for evening portraits I found this amazing vantage point where the sun was directly behind, the clouds parted for a few seconds and this image was made.
This picture of Chris and Leonie was taken on their Wedding Day september 16th 2017. At the beautiful Castle De Schaffelaar, Barneveld, The Netherlands, which was the setting of their wedding all day, we had just finished their shoot and the ceremony was about to begin in ca. 30 minutes. The guests had not arrived yet. The room where the ceremony was going to take place was all set. With all the fun and excitement we had with this great couple during the shoot, we challenged Chris and Leonie to realize this funny final shot. It turned out great.
Armed with a wide-angle lens to increase the depth of the venue and the length of Chris's arms we decided to take the photo from the lowest perspective possible. We are very happy with the final result and we're proud of the given honors by Wedisson.
Abi & Aidan had a quite manic winter wedding, so the idea was to get them away for a little bit to capture something a bit different, and with it being dark outside, and there being an awesome barn available for us to use, I decided to get creative. I used a gelled flash behind my couple to create the silhouette, and some fairy lights in the foreground to create some bokeh, and it ended up looking like this. I think it works really well from a compositional point of view and I was over the moon with the end result.
Opening dance of Roy & Grieteke. How great is this! My first entry with the Wedisson Awards and I'm being selected. I'm truly honored to be selected! I was called in late as a substitute to shoot the 2nd half of the wedding day of Roy and Grieteke. After a quick but warm welcome with the newly weds I started my assignment. This was one magic evening. After diner I did a short love shoot with them and then we entered the beautiful decorated party area. I quickly raised my Profoto's to capture the movement and balance the ambient light...and then I waited for the perfect moment. One of my all time favorite photo's of the opening dance. Thank you Roy and Grieteke for inviting me.
What an awesome wedding ❤️ The engagement shoot was in the heights at Escondido and it was just amazing. The couple rented for their family a huge villa in a bohemian style. This shoot happens on the garden full of lemon and orange trees around the house. We love the story of their destination wedding in San Diego.
The picture was taken in a beautiful hunting palace. A unique object, probably one of two of this type in Europe. The outer facade of the palace was made of cork oak bark imported from Portugal. Unfortunately, it is already badly damaged, but it still has beauty in it.
This lovely bride here is actually one of the most genuinely kind women I’ve met. I even remember going to school with her, I was a couple of years younger and I was so super jealous of her hair on the school bus every day because she just looked so pretty without even trying. Meet Monica. She’s fabulous.
This beautiful picture is another one from the love sign wedding (Jessica & Matt) taken at the Mission inn wedding venue in Riverside. The editing took some works to make it this beautiful. This is an homage to a mentor photographer that I absolutely love, Sal Concintta. I had this one in vision for a long time. I was so happy that i was able to finally bring it to life.
The wedding day was ending and the couple was enjoying the party with their family. Then we decided to take a break and escape to where the bridal car was parked. The key decision was to locate a flash with a trigger inside the car. That gave the shot the backlight, the shine on the roof and the reflection on the body car. This photo has a special atmosphere.
These moments aren’t particularly rare but they are SO fun to photograph. I’m literally sat opposite them during dinner so I can shoot wide angle. The couple trust me enough + are completely caught up in the moment so I get front row seats to the BEST facial expressions, which in turn tell a small, hilarious story.
I often hear photographers complain about smoke machines. They're all wrong. Smoke machines are great. The things they do with light are incredible. Unfortunately I only see them on rare occasions as most venues don't allow them (I've seen a band cause a full evacuation at the ORNC in Greenwich!). Marquees and DIY weddings are the best hunting ground and so it was with this wedding. If I remember correctly the couple had hired it themselves and it made for a great backdrop to their first dance. More smoke machines please!
When I notice that the bride and the groom are so fun and relaxed, I knew it's time for creation. I had to let them feel that they are alone and enjoy themselves while I play with the veil trying to create stunning effects that result in stunning photographs.
Taking night time pictures is one of my passion. I also love Disney and castles. Well, this one was pretty much a combination of everything I love. We worked a lot of the wardrobe because i wanted some drama. tHey wedding colors were blue and white, which was perfect to pop them out in the photograph. So romantic....
I was doing that boring photo of the couple walking together + then crept up to Hales + said “photos done! initiate party”. Hales reaction was awesome + without hesitation. I love photographing completely authentic expressions that genuinely represent a part of the subjects character.
