Kelvin and Jo Blisworth Church Wedding
I had met Kelvin and Jo at their beautiful home, somewhere at the end of 2016. Ther couple had chosen a Blisworth Church Wedding for their ceremony, followed by a reception at Towcester Rugby Club
.We discussed their dreams of the day, and what they required from me as their wedding photographer.
Every couple, and I do really mean every couple, is so very different in the dreams for their wedding day. Every wedding day is different. It’s why I love a wedding so much. For me, I don’t believe you need to have a certain’style’ as a wedding photographer
, because in reality the Bride and Groom choose your style for the day. Kelvin and Jo had a clear vision in mind.
Wedding Photography Stlyes
You can be more one style than another, don’t get me wrong, but the couple call the shots, so to speak. They might require posed and traditional, natural, or candid, alternative images, without any posing what so ever. You have to be able to deliver, or I guess, you can turn down a lot of weddings and just shoot what you want to shoot, that’s just fine, but that’s not for me!
When it comes down to it, every wedding will have images that cross each genre, natural, traditional, posed, reportage, captured in the moment, keeping it real, as in Uncle Joe drinking way too much, and falling over on the dance floor.
When you photograph a wedding you carry an awful lot of responsibility on your shoulders. You are documenting the day in picture, framing every moment, ensuring that each important shot is captured, for all time. Capturing memories, for the couple, their guests and for those who may not have been able to attend.
There’s nothing better than a wedding
There really is nothing like the buzz of a wedding, and the anticipation of the day and how it will unfold. For me, once I’m safely at the venue, then I totally relax. I know my art, I love what I do, and I know the couple and their desires of the day. If there are any secret surprises, it’s best for either one of the couple to let me know. That way, I can be fully aware and prepared so that I capture that special moment.
It’s vital that you are always prepared for most situations. Ensure that you have back up equipment, that it is clean and working. Dual card slots, plenty of SD cards and camera batteries will give you piece of mind.
