My Kind of Image: The Groomsmen

So for this week’s image I thought I’d feature a groomsmen shot I took recently at a wedding at Orleans House Gallery in Twickenham.  The reason I’m looking at it here today is that, in terms of documentary wedding photography, group shots are tricky.  The very fact of getting people …

Destination Wedding Photography | Kalkan, Turkey

There’s something about destination wedding photography that gives the brain a bit of a spring clean.  It’s the different food, different sights, new surroundings.  Maybe the physical act of flying to the wedding.  Of course the sun and sea part doesn’t hurt either.  Another thing, fundamentally, as a photographer, is …

my kind of image: father of the bride

There are some photos that are just all about the moment, and this is one of them.  The father of the bride seeing his daughter in her wedding dress for the first time. I’ve included the next two shots to show you the embrace and because it’s important as a …

my kind of image: wedding tableau

So this is going to be the first entry in a regular series of posts about particular images, what they mean to me and why I took them.  This first post is about the wedding tableau. What I love about pictures like this is the way the camera is able …

London and Berkshire Wedding Photography | Jackie & Stuart

If this wedding looks a little bit back-to-front and topsy turvy to you, it’s only because it was.  I don’t even know if I should be calling this Berkshire wedding photography because the wedding itself took place in London, after the wedding breakfast, which was in Berkshire.  And the two …

Stoke Newington Town Hall Wedding & The Sugar Hill Gang

To say that Natalie and Jesse’s Stoke Newington Town Hall wedding was kid friendly is an exercise in understatement.  At times it felt like half the guests there were children (although that can also be true when they’re no kids at the weddings at all).  What was great about this …

Aemelia Fox – Fashion, Beauty and Boudoir Photography

Due to various factors we only had two hours for this lovely fashion-slash-boudoir shoot.  So, basically, I had to work fast.  But if anything has taught me how to work fast it’s the crazy speed weddings move at.  (Photographers who’ve cut their teeth in the fashion world are usually left …
