Watching the crowd

Focusing on the bride & groom is obviously important on their big day but I find more and more of my clients are saying that they want photos of these kind of photos of their guests. When documenting a wedding it is important for me to show you more than what you saw on the day.

Just look at what is going on in this photo. Tara & Daniel are in their own little world, oblivious to what is going on around them. When I capture moments like this it makes me happy. I see the shot pop up in the viewfinder and I know I have that little moment saved for ever. On your wedding day you will miss a lot. Trust me, weddings go quick! You wont remember much, even the bits when you were sober. Look how happy everyone is. You may not realise it but when you get married your family are proud. Look at that grin on Ade's face. He looks so happy to be welcoming his new Son-in-law into the family. Tara's younger sister Joley looks like she is in her own little world, so happy for them both.

These are the moments I want to capture for you. I want to be able to share moments with you that you were in, but didn't see, because moments like this are worth keeping.


Everyones in a world of their own

I took this photo last year at Shustoke Farm Barns whilst shooting Joy & Neil’s wedding. I am posting this on a Sunday as when I look at this photo it reminds me of how I think Sundays ‘should’ feel.

I am no movie expert but does anyone else out there know what I mean by ‘a Sunday afternoon film’? Maybe I am loosing the plot but to me there is a Sunday feeling. Its nice to be chilled out on a Sunday afternoon. After a week at work it’s nice to not have anything to do. Just potter around, make some nice food & maybe watch a ‘Sunday afternoon film’. A chilled out film, nothing too intense, nothing you have to think too much about. A recent example would be ‘The intern’. Definitely not an Oscar Award winning film but just a nice film that you don’t have to think about too much & leaves you with a kind of warm feeling inside after watching it.

Yep, maybe I am loosing the plot. Anyway, this photo reminds me a little of that ‘Sunday afternoon feeling’. Almost like everyone is in a little world of their own, not a care in the world. Even though it is work tomorrow you can still have a nice time today! Watch a Sunday afternoon film & tag me!
