My second wedding of the year came in the shape of Bret and Liz and was a whole host of fun including; confetti cannons, zip wire skittles, orange shoes and a beautiful VW Camper van. Being fans of my style and approach to photography, Bret and Liz specifically requested a larger amount of ‘reportage’ shots as opposed to staged shots. This is probably one of my favourite ways to photograph people, catching someone mid-laugh provides a genuine smile or a relaxed composure due to being unaware that they’re being photographed.
As photographers we are professional observers of happenings and we have the important job to capture it. Using our images, people look at them and have the sensation of remembrance that they were there.
May Bank Holiday weekend saw the return of my wedding season with the marriage of Tina and Wayne. A church wedding held at the John Pounds Unitarian Church in Old Portsmouth, Hampshire, England.
I always try and look at a wedding from a different perspective, I’m not just a photographer but a thinker on photography and what the photographic image means. The bride was preparing for her big day in the house she had grown up in and so when it came to leave one of the neighbours came out excitedly to see her off. This image made me think about how this now elderly couple had known Tina and her brother since they were babies and the connection between them is a lifelong one that has seen many changes along the way.
