With This Ring
Most of you know that a couple of weeks ago I photographed a wedding. It isn’t something I normally do, but Sasha and Bianca saw my portrait shots and wanted me to take some wedding photos for them. I wasn’t the main photographer there, and I tried to make sure that I didn’t get in his way, but I also managed to get some wonderful shots myself. They have approved the photos and now I can show you a selection of the 1300 photos I took that day.
This one is probably my favourite from the whole day, though there were a lot more that came pretty close. I put this image up on Facebook on Saturday and was amazed at how many people liked it.
I also put this image up on Sunday and again, so many said that they thought it was beautiful. In truth, it was a beautiful wedding. A lot of things didn’t go as planned, but we went with it and just did what we had to do. I managed to get some amazing photos and I do feel really privileged that I was asked to take photos for them.
We tried lots of things, and some worked and some didn’t, but the great thing was that they trusted me and were willing to let me try many things. The ones that did work were brilliant. I think having the two photographers worked really well, the other one ended up doing the photos that the groom wanted and I concentrated on the bride and helped her to get what she was after. Then while he was doing the family photos I went into the reception area and photographed all the little details that I thought she would want, as a reminder of what it looked like on the day.
I think you can tell from this image, that the day was crap, it rained on and off, and this was one of the very last photos I got in the city. As soon as we got into the cars after this it really rained. Though, it turned out to be good because if it hadn’t rained we would not have got the first photo I showed you.
They were such a beautiful couple and so wonderful to work with. She kept saying she was being a bridezilla, but really she wasn’t, it was just really easy to see how much it meant to her for the day to go well. She was never rude, or angry, in fact I thought she was a fantastic client. I love it. They wrote me a wonderful review on Photographers.com.au, what more could you ask for.
I am going to put a lot more into a gallery for you now, and you can browse through them. I hope you like them as well. I never thought I wanted to do weddings, but if I could do more like this, I would be very happy.
