Wedding! Andrew and Julia at Mottram Hall!
October 5th, 2009
As some of you may of read on my twitter or facebook updates, I've been making some changes to my portfolio and shooting style so that I can get accepted into a wedding photographers organisation who I admire very much. They're called the WPJA. They're an organisation made up of wedding photographers whose work focuses mostly on capturing moments as they happen, rather than setting up shots.
I've admired the work of the many different photographers for quite a while now. Some of which are very big names in the world of wedding photography.
If you're looking for a wedding photographer who can capture the real moments of your wedding, then I highly recommend that you invest in any of the wedding photographers listed on the WPJA website.
On a slightly related note, on Thursday night, on the way up north to shoot Andrew and Julias wedding, I received a very nice email which went something like this:
Please excuse our delay in getting back to you. We are in the midst of making three contests live on our site(s): WPJA Q2, AGWPJA Q2 and the annual WPJA/BRIDES Magazine contest.
It is our pleasure to have you as a new WPJA member! Great images in your portfolio!
[blah blah blah].
Welcome to the WPJA!
So....yeh, I got in!
I've put so much effort into getting into this association and I am SO thrilled to be welcomed in!
I've had allot of backing from brides and grooms, photographer friends and of course so much support from my family and my beautiful wife!
Thank you everybody!
I felt like after receiving that email, I couldn't be in a better place than a wedding!
So I shot Andrew and Julia's wedding, and I shot it good!!!
Thank you Andrew and Julia for being another couple who liked my work enough to let me capture your special day, and thank you also for being a perfect couple. It's couples like you that make my job so much fun!
Why not enjoy these pictures hey?
Thank you Dan for your help!
Now get this, and prepare your saliva glands...
a Krispey Kreme tower as a wedding cake!!!
Honestly, the smell hit you as soon as you walked in the room, it was a beautiful thing!
(my wheat and egg allergies on the other hand....hmmm, not so beautiful)
Andrew and the family had arranged some suprises for Julia, one being the Krispey Kreme tower of Joy, and another was to have an old music teacher play Sax for them during the meal! Lovely stuff Neil!
And Julia was thrilled!
The boys went out for a spot of football, Victorian style by the looks of it!
Not too sure what Julia will think when she sees the state of Andrews shoes!
The Hill girls sure know how to rock a wedding dress don't they? I think Julia looks fantastic here!
The Speeches were sweet...
..and very funny too. Well done Luke!
Congratulations Andrew and Julia.
I hope you enjoy eternity together.
