My favourite part of a wedding day " The getting ready shots"

One of the best things about being a wedding photographer is watching and capturing the beauty and drama that all wedding days bring. The day is split up photographically into about eleven sections 1: Location and detail shots. 2: Bride getting ready 3: Groom getting and fun shots with Groomsmen. 4: Guests arriving 5: Ceremony 6: Group shots 7: Bride & Groom shots 8: Speeches 9: Cutting of cake 10: First dance 11: Party shots My favourite part of the day is the getting ready shots and here is why. There is an excitement and nervous energy that will always bring peoples guard down and allows you to capture something real and beautiful. I alway just use available light and usually a 35mm 1.4 u

How I put Chloe in the middle of a river to get this shot.

We had a wedding in Bibury recently with a lovely couple. I scouted Bibury for photo locations (of which there are plenty) and had this idea of backlighting them from the middle of a bridge that goes over a river. Now you have to understand that I have the best assistant you could ever want in Chloe, so when I said " I will need you to get into a river at night holding £1000 of lighting gear" she said "Brilliant! How exciting!" To make unique images, you have to put yourself out there, or in this case Chloe 😂. After removing Chloe and the light stand in Photoshop, and editing in Lightroom, we are so pleased with the results.
