The perfect couple, the same hobbies, addicted to sports And with the desire to continue completing goals and respect the love they have for each other, a day where smiles and tears were not lacking, their friends and family were also by their side completely convinced that this love will overcome all the bike and running races they can do throughout their lives. Happy to be there and leave the best memory.
Something wonderful about a wedding is, that no matter what happens, the good mood and happiness of a couple is not clouded by anything. Not even with a heavy rain shower during the bridal couple shooting. The groom has to help out spontaneously so that the bride can step up her legs. The absolutly right moment to take picture.
Brave the cold winter nights and put all of your trust in your wedding photographer and the results will speak for themselves! This image was taken at Mottram Hall in Cheshire using 3 Godex Ad200s to light the couple while they were absolutely loving life with the bottles of champagne!
One from a recent winter wedding at The Oxfordshire Hotel. At the start of the day I saw the opportunity to create a portrait using the tree. I knew I wanted to add a little light to make the tree stand out whilst silhouetting the couple. We then got really lucky with the sky!
This staircase at Thornton Hall always lends itself to a 15mm wide shot. Rachel was lit with an OCF light set at 1/64 in front of her, with a second OCF to my right at 1/128 lighting the back of the dress. The 15mm lens was used to capture the ornate skylight and capture the flowing lines of the staircase too. Thanks for the award Wedisson!
I just LOVE this shot! it looks quite "easy done", but it was definetely not! And it might look like it was not staged at all, but it was!
The difficulty was to "direct" the two horses to look to the left and right, to keep them "on place", so they are positioned clearly released in front of the sky and to let the couple kiss without falling down from the horses ;)
I remember laying on the grass right in front of the horses to catch the best moment with my 20mm Sigma Art, while hearing the guests whisper: "Oh boy, this guy has some guts! Would be too dangerous for me!"
But to be honest, I never have thoughts like this when shooting pictures like this one. You just have to trust the couple (and the horses) and of course you have to trust yourself that you have reflexes fast enough just in case... ;)
This shot was taken at the stunning Abbeywood Estate in Cheshire during an incredibly informative workshop run by the awesome Neil Redfern.
I've wanted to be able to create some "wow factor" images for my couples since starting my wedding photography journey and this shot is just the type of thing I was after. Using a mirror held against my lens enabled me to get the reflection of sky underneath the couple.
I'll definitely be using this technique again!
An old factory near the party location was the location for the bridal couple shoot. Unfortunately it rained that day and only little light was available. I found this armchair in a corner and found these lighting conditions in another room. Since I never really use lightning to capture the real situation, it took a few tries to get this picture. But i love it - and i hope you love it too.
