Elegance in Venice

Elegance in Venice – a stunning portrait

As you may know, last year I was lucky enough to get to spend some time in Venice with one of the top 5 wedding photographers in the world. The extremely talented (and likeable) Yervant, from Australia.

Over the course of the week we photographed some newly-weds, and then some absolutely gorgeous Italian models.

I’ve previously shared a few images from my trip and over the course of the next few weeks I’ll post some more.

Here’s one from a stunning palazzo that we were privileged to be able to use.

From a technical perspective it’s a very simple shot. Just window light. But that’s all it needs. It’s not necessary to set up complicated lighting. Much simpler to use the available light – provided you know how to do it properly.

Professional wedding photographers know how to work with whatever light situation they’re confronted with. That’s one of the reasons why you should seriously consider hiring a professional for your wedding day.

 

If you’re getting married soon and haven’t already booked your photographer, then please get in touch. As one of Dorset’s leading wedding photographers I’m recommended by a number of the major wedding venues in the area. I’d be delighted to have a chat about what you want out of your wedding day, and how you want it recorded. Your wedding day’s unique, so shouldn’t the service that you receive be unique as well? Don’t settle for second best on your wedding day. Please use the contact form here on my website and I look forward to hearing from you.

Wedding rings – why I love this image

This is a photograph from Claire and Tom’s beach wedding last year, down at Beach Weddings Bournemouth.

I love this image because it’s so simple. The Groom and the Best Man comparing wedding rings. We all know that the ladies compare rings, don’t we? Well, it seems, so do the guys! :)

It is a simple photograph. Wedding photographs don’t need to be complex. It doesn’t need an explanation. It captures that moment forever. Probably a moment that Tom can’t even remember. That’s what documentary wedding photography is all about. Capturing fleeting events in a day that passes in the blink of an eye.

At a wedding I never rest. Always anticipating. Looking out for situations. Laughter. Tears. A simple hug that tells a story.

You need to choose a wedding photographer who produces the style of photographs that you like.

Studland pre-wedding shoot

A Studland pre-wedding shoot with Lauren and Sam

Lauren and Sam booked me more than a year ago for their wedding, which is coming up in the Spring. One of the things that they were really keen on was a photo-shoot before their big day. Well, with plans being turned upside down a little last year, this got delayed. So, in the Autumn we went ahead with this Studland pre-wedding shoot.

I absolutely LOVE doing pre-wedding (or engagement) shoots! They’re a great way to get to know my couples, and what makes them “tick”. How they are in each other’s company. What makes them laugh. Which side of the face the Bride-to-be prefers to be photographed from.

It’s also fantastic from the couple’s point of view. They get used to being photographed, something most people are, well, hesitant about! They can relax in front of the camera, and that’s going to be important on their wedding day.

Lauren and Sam – I’m really looking forward to your big day in April, so keep practising those great smiles, and see you soon! x
