How do you stay creative photographing weddings in the same venue over and over again?
I always get asked by wedding couples if I’ve shot their venue before. I usually like answering a big fat “NO” to that question. Basically because I like to shoot new venues and getting excited about shooting something new; rather than taking the same photos every time.
Well there is one exception to that rule…….Brighton’s Royal Pavilion.
Why? Well I’ll tell you.
Living in Brighton, i’ve shot quite a few weddings at this wonderful venue….and it’s so unique that I really enjoy the challenge of shooting in there over and over again. And seeing how creative I can be in the one room that they always take you to for the couples shoot.
Quick sneaky peeky from yesterdays wedding at Northbrook Park in Surrey.
So it rained when we were supposed to do the couples shoot yesterday and when I say it rained, it really RAINED…..thunder bolts and lighting, very very…..well you know the rest.
We were kind thrown out of kilter as i’d planned a great walk all around the wonderful grounds of Northbrook Park, with the sun streaming in amongst the trees, but that all changed.
I managed to grab a few minutes with Lauren and Jack between the starters and main course and we shot a few pictures, when I spied this wonderful shadow and thought it looked very graphic.
Sometimes you have to change your game up quickly as a photographer and sometimes something so simple as horizontal lines with a diagonal shadow work wonders.
Massive congrats to Lauren & Jack.
Ok so i’m not normally this ‘on it’ on a Sunday morning….it’s only just 8am. But i’ve got a stupidly busy week, so I thought i’d get these images shot at Hendall Manor Barns, Sussex, yesterday out first thing.
Anyway. Yesterday was the wedding of Tom & Lara, it was supposed to rain, really rain….it didn’t though. Which was great and a massive relief as all the images I’d planed were for outside.
So I thought i’d share these with you. They were shot at almost exactly the same time, in the same location, but with two different exposures. I find it really interesting that as a photographer you can shoot something so differently and that they have such a different feel to the images.
Massive congrats to Tom & Lara who are about to jet off to Japan for their honeymoon!!!
So I have to admit that I was slightly nervous about this one, as I hadn’t had a chance to meet Emily & Eddie before the wedding. We’d only had a Skype call a few days before.
But I needn’t have worried as they were both so lovely and cool and their guests were great fun. We had the best time and the photo booth was one of the coolest that I’ve done in a while.
So this is Emily & Eddie enjoying a quiet moment during their couples portraits at Rushton Hall in Northamptonshire.
A quick sneak peek from Jo and Paul’s, laid back East End / Surrey wedding at Orleans House Gallery & Richmond Park.
It was a right proper East End knees up. Good times were had, my cheeks hurt from the speeches, Paul got a surprise 40th birthday present, I took loads of photos and spent the day with a lovely bunch of people.
Massive congrats to Jo & Paul, it was a fab day.
