Beautiful Wedding Photography

Practice makes perfect  – A Wedding Photographers Day off……

Every now and then you get to shoot some fantastic wedding images, I am not talking about great ‘wedding photos’ – thats what the bride and groom want but once in a while a couple will come along and will let you take a couple of hours in their wedding day to take them off and shoot some really dramatic shots – Sometimes it even happens on the day after the wedding or weeks or months later.

So to make your up to the task you need to practice these skills and thats where days like last Tuesday come in.   It was not a workshop and it was a very exclusive little group – 10 of us in total. We had exclusive use of Newstead Abbey nr Nottingham, he also arranged for seven models and an amazing makeup artist (who also models) and one of his good friends is  a wedding dress designer who came along with a stunning collection of gowns.

The idea was simple – we took the models off either a bride by herself or a bride and groom and spent an hour shooting whatever we wanted to shoot.  Some of the other photographers brought along picnics or parasol’s  etc, etc, etc.  I just wanted to practice shooting ‘Stunning Wall Portraits’  I also wanted to shoot directly into the sun and see if I could over power it using little Nikon speedlight flashe’s that I carry.  Another thing I wanted to do was play with lighting Gel’s – this is where you change the colour of your flash to ‘Tungsten’ and put the camera into a tungsten setting, this turns daylight very blue as you will see.

So with my very good friend Tim Driver from Driver Photographyhttp://www.driverphotography.co.uk we set off and spent 6 hours shooting lots of photos just for our own portfolio’s

Below are a few of my favorites from the day – I hope you like

I would love more brides and grooms to set aside an hour or so in the day just for Bridal Portraits – as you can see the results could be STUNNING.

In this photo the blue light coming thru the windows is just daylight – its colour is changed by the use of a CTS (colour temperature straw) gel on the flash

I am using the same technique here but only using a 1/2 CTS gel and have dialed in a WB 1/2 way between Tungsten and daylight

and my last shot of the day is one I had planned all day long – I asked the second I saw the black dress if I could have it last and if they minded if I got it wet !

I hope you agree not a bad way to spend your day off !
