Greek Wedding Photography Birmingham – Photo of the Week August 19th 2013

Hello there,

This year has seen me shooting a lot of Greek Weddings in Birmingham, with wedding receptions at the Motor Cycle Museum in Birmigham just off the M42

I simply love this photo from an amazing wedding I helped my good friend Sean O’Shaughnessy photography last week.   Sean and I have been working together on Greek Weddings (typically 200 – 500 guests) so having 2 photographers and an assistant works really well and it enables us to give the couple amazing photos.

I had seen a similar shot to this several years ago and always thought, Ohhh I like that.  so when during the wedding service it came time for the bride to kiss the Gospel I waited and waited and eventually was rewarded with this shot.

I hope you like.

the settings are ISO 4000, 125th Sec F2.4 @ 85mm

POTW – 11th August 2013 – Brides wearing amazing Jimmy Choo’s

Hi there,

Cant tell you too much about this wedding just yet, its a bit of a secret one, but Shot this yesterday – I thought of Best Bird (Emma, my wife’s maid on honor) when I spotted the bride wearing her Jimmy Choo’s – a beautiful strappy number and thought I neeed a picture of this.

For the togs out there, there was noting too technical, I overexposed the scene by 2/3rds of a stop hence the slightly blown grass in the background but I wanted to get the Jimmy’s looking amazing.

A Sneak Peek – The amazing Turkish wedding celebration of Natalie and Dogan.

Hi there, I am on a bit of a roll at the moment with blog posts, they are like the number 10 bus – none for ages then 3 in a row.

A couple of weeks ago saw the team at David Purslow Photography  shooting the wedding of Natalie and Dogan, The team for the day was made up of my primary wedding assistant – Clare my  good friend Sean O’Shaughnessy (a Solihull based wedding & Portrait photographer) and myself – I needed a big team as this was a BIG BIG wedding.  Being a Turkish affair the numbers were huge, so the wedding took place at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham – The Imperial suite is one of the largest venues in the west midlands – more about this a little later – but remember this is only a sneak peek !

The day started really early for us and her is Natalie our beautiful bride at the hairdressers
