Priston Mill Wedding Photojournalist. Ian and Lucy
April 26th, 2011
I hope you've been enjoying your long weekend?
We've had incredible weather here and we're hoping to continue to make the most of it!
I've decided to inject a few more personal posts every now and then on here, so expect to see a few holiday pictures and personal work.
When prospective couples meet up with me for the first time, they often say how they feel like they already know me because I like to have a little chat on here, so now you'll be able to see what I get up to when I'm not at a wedding. (yes, there are such occasions)
I've got some holidays and engagement parties to blog about which will probably do the blog no good but I know it won't hurt.
Who knows? You might even see a picture or two of me. Lucky you!
Today's wedding is of Ian and Lucy, the couple who I had blogged previously with their engagement shoot in Bath covered in snow.
I've enjoyed selecting their pictures for this blog, I'll try to explain...
As a member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association, at weddings I put almost all of my effort into seeking out moments that are happening throughout the day. Sometimes the moments are big and other times they're ever so subtle.
It's easy to a certain degree to walk around with a nice bit of equipment taking pictures of the flowers, dress, shoes, cake, table decorations and more flowers, and in fact I do take pictures of these things because the Bride has put a lot of thought into planning these little details to make their day special.
To me, the most important things are the moments that are easily forgotten about.
Ian and Lucy's wedding was almost perfect for them.
Why "almost"? With the heavy snow, some guests simply couldn't get to the wedding and the wedding wasn't going to be a 200+ guest affair to start off with so things were very intimate. Perhaps the smallest wedding for me to date? (Making up 1/44th of the guests can be a little scary to be honest)
Below is a very strict selection of real moments that I loved capturing. The majority of them aren't groundbreaking moments, instead they make up a honest representation of a fantastic day that was all about the closest friends and family.
Sure there were some details, but I'm taking a jump here by just showing you the people rather than the things.
Next wedding, I won't go on so much about how I think moments are more important, I'll keep quiet!
I hope you enjoy.
