Until you have photographed your first wedding as the official photographer you can not appreciate the work that goes into creating the right image of the clients special day. The aim of my shoot was to provide the client with a variety of print ready files for them to take to the printers and for a selection of web files – that would be watermarked that they could share online as soon as possible after the day itself – I am pleased to say they were live on Saturday …. but it is exhausting.
I can fully appreciate the work the photographer puts into the wedding…. but I can’t wait to do another one.
The reception was at two venues – the lighting was awful, disco lights but they wanted the moment captured where the balloon popped during their first dance, more group photos – but the walls and ceiling was dark and the lights uncontrollable but I wanted to capture the emotion, the feeling of the event, the fun and vibrancy of all the red colours…
I was in manual for the disco using bounced flash and experimenting – lucky there was more time … the formal shots are formal…. exactly what the bride requested but I love just capturing the moments, the sneaky peak of the Saints shirt under their smart tops, the details on the decorations, the characters and the natural smiles.
I think I did a great job…. I fully appreciate the work that goes into creating a wedding and I can’t wait for next paid wedding… in the mean time I would love to know what you think….
