During a few minutes we had before the coctail, we found a wonderful light.
We took full advantage of 10 minutes before sunset.
A beautiful pine forest, the couple in love and the old car did the rest.
The photo is taken in Simancas, a beautiful town very close to Valladolid, Spain.

I love this candid moment during the father of the brides's speech :)
Emma's dad was explaining (both verbally and non-verbally) that you should never go to bed on an argument. His solution? Simple; for every husband to always agree with his wife!
I had preempted that something was going to happen when I noticed the covered signed before the speeches had started so I made sure that periodically I and was in the right spot with a 24mm lens which enabled me to capture the action.
This where the time Noelia began her journey to put on her dress but she found some problems with the stockings and she began nervous so her bridesmaid and even my assistant get to work on to put them in place, in the process I shot that picture, even the mom pose for it.
When Danielle and Joe said they wanted a little private time away from their guests, we decided to hide in the ceremony barn, and said I would hang back while they did. They did this totally unexpectedly and I was just fortunate enough to sense something was about to happen :-)
The DJ and I discussed when to set of the Confetti canons. I took some 1st dance shots and then quickly switched to a wide angle 14mm lens and crouched down ready for the canons. I knew exactly the beat of the song for when the were to explode so I locked focus on the couple and fired several shots and selected the best of the bunch. Everyone loved the confetti canons going off.
This was the last shot I had on Salwa & Jesse wedding before the reception start. The bride was very relaxed and the day was going very smooth. I started to ask her and her bridesmaids to kindly start capturing some natural, fun photos. There were kinda hesitated at the beginning about this idea to through their flowers up in the air, but in a few seconds, they were like let's do it. I loved to capture and focus on the faces expressions of each one of them.
Rhi and Olli had planned their wedding in secret, inviting a small band of family and friends to a spurious birthday party in a big house in the Cheshire countryside. Over breakfast, with much of Rhi's preparations already underway upstairs, they came clean to much shock, surprise and tears. Although Rhi's father was in on the secret, her mother wasn't, and they shared a few quiet moments together in amongst the panic of preparing for an unexpectedly big day!
This is at the back of the building where this couple got married.
I saw the architecture and loved how the shape could beautifully contradict with the couple.
Having my assistant point the flash at the couple to create the shadows on the wall, really enhanced the overall feel.
