This year I became a Sony wedding photographer. Since I first used a camera, I have used a Canon SLR. It was about time for a change. This image was taken from one of my first weddings with a Ar7 Mk3 . Along with the new camera body, I was also using new lenses. For this photograph, I used 35mm with an aperture of F1.4.
The colours at a spring wedding are always special. If you combine that with beautiful sunlight, then that’s just a dream for me. We had all this going for us during our couple shoot at Sarah and Thomas’ wedding.
The image below was taken during the drinks reception. As you can see, there is a degree of posing. But once in the pose, it’s my job as an experienced wedding photographer to put the couple at ease. Getting to know a bride and grooms interests, how they met etc, is important here. This is all done at a pre-wedding shoot. After this was taken it was time for the speeches. We made our way back to the Leicestershire wedding venue and joined the guests for more champagne!
