ARTISTIC WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY DODFORD MANOR

By MY STYLE No Comments

Here’s an image from a recent wedding at the beautiful Dodford Manor venue. Sarah and Paul had asked me prior to the day to try and capture a few artistic images. Both loved my reportage work, but wanted something that they could add to a frame and enjoy. They wanted something that wasn’t obviously a wedding photograph.

In the evening, we went outside in the rain and composed this photograph. It uses flash and coloured gels to achieve the effect. I love the colours and the rim light around the couple. I used blue and red as they are opposite sides of the colour wheel and so work together each other perfectly.

I was really pleased with this capture. I hope you love it too! Let me know what you think in the comments below.

NORTHAMPTONSHIRE MARQUEE WEDDING | MY STYLE

By MY STYLE No Comments

Here’s a wedding image from back in 2018. The bride and groom for this one were Louise and Rob. They had their special day in a marquee overlooking a reservoir in Northamptonshire.

BEAUTIFUL DETAILS

In the day, I’d noticed some beautiful festoon lights decorating the trees. I made a mental note to revisit them later in n the evening. So, as the sun disappeared, I took my Sony camera over to the trees. I tried out a few ways of framing the subject and settled on the photograph I was going to take. The light from the festoon lights was minimal, so I had to add some off camera flash to light the happy couple. Then it was just a question of posing and a nice moment. Louise and Rob kissed and the image came out perfectly!

This is actually an award winning shot! I was awarded a Masters Of Wedding Photography award for it which made me very proud. I actually photographed a wedding for a friend of Louise and Robs and won an award for one of their images too. Check it out here!

TRADITIONAL IRISH WEDDING

By MY STYLE No Comments

Back at the beginning of last year I made my way over County Mayo to photograph both a traditional Irish wedding and a traditional Persian wedding. I have worked in Ireland before and I was excited to go back there again!

DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY

This image was taken during the catholic wedding ceremony. Having seen one of the girls yawn and had grabbed a photo. However, not satisfied, I thought that if the little girl did the same and they both yawned, it would give the shot something extra! Waiting for a long as I could, camera poised, and my patience was rewarded with this composition.

Catholic weddings are long services. For kids, it can be tough to concentrate for that amount of time. This just tells that story. I’m always looking to tell stories like this on a wedding day. Most couples book me for my reportage work, so this is a good really good example of that. I love the rich colours of the edit on this one too! I hope you like it!

I travel all over the UK and Europe, so if you’re looking for a destination wedding photographer just drop me a line!

AWARD WINNING DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

By MY STYLE One Comment

So, here’s an award winning image that I took in the summer. It’s pure documentary wedding photography. Nothing in this frame was posed. I had seen that the groom was moping his brow and Instantly I wanted to grab a shot of him! It was only after this that I saw that the Virgin Mary and Jesus were behind him! I realised that this would make quite a comical photo, so I moved to incorporate the sculpture. I also saw, that there was a good opportunity for symmetry, so I composed the image to take advantage of this.

I love this photograph because of the fun nature of it. The groom had a cheeky personality too, so I when you are made aware of this I think it elevates it from very good to great! I am always looking for these moments when snapping a wedding.

I’m really pleased to say too that this is an award winning photograph too! It won a This Is Reportage award a few months ago which I was so pleased about. Only 3% of entries win TIR awards, so to win my third is very special!

I’d love to hear what you think of this image so please leave a comment below if you’d like to!
