I do love shooting weddings, mainly because of the heightened emotion and love that is involved. I know it sounds cheesy, but everyone is just so happy! It’s my main purpose at a wedding to seek out all these emotional moments that are happening and capture it, so the bride and groom can look back for years to come and remember just how they were feeling on their wedding day.
This week I had the joy of photographing the wedding of a guy I have know since we were at least five! Its brilliant that we have stayed friends this whole time, and I am sure for many years to come.
I felt truly privileged to witness moments as a photographer that not all guests may see. I got to see first hand the look in his eyes when he saw his bride coming down the isle, and I did well up a little! I was so happy that we got that photo, so that we can share that feeling and moment with everyone who couldn’t quite see it on the day, and to remember it from now on.
Here is that moment, as well as a few other special times that we got to share with Jon and Caroline. Congratulations guys, I am so happy for you!
I had the pleasure of photographing a charismatic 3 year old last week who after taking a beautiful photo of him as a guest at a wedding, his parents brought him back to us to create his first model portfolio.
Jayden was brilliant fun and thanks to lots of preperation from his mum had a fantastic wardrobe selection too. I noticed that Jayden’s particular talent was his ability to follow instructions well, particularly by mimicking poses that I showed him. This meant that we were able to do a great variety of shots – perfect for model agencies.
His good behaviour, charming character and gorgeous looks meant that he had some brilliant shots and we are certain he is going to do well. You saw him here first!
The gap between the end of the ceremony and the start of the wedding breakfast is a great time for guests to mingle and enjoy a drink and canopies. However at our recent wedding they also had the great idea of providing some other forms of entertainment.
We had another great wedding at Englemere, Ascot with fantastic weather. The bride and groom provided giant garden games to keep the guests, of all ages, entertained.
They thoroughly enjoyed these games and we had a great time photographing them. My assistant and I had to take quite a risk in our positioning to get some good shots, but it was definitely worth it!
Here are a few examples, and one of my many favourites of Ross and Sarah.
