Latest Wedding at Whirlowbrook Hall

Here again with a selection of photographs from Emma & Richards' Wedding at Whirlowbrook Hall in Sheffield. Whirlowbrook Hall is a great wedding venue with very extensive grounds and from my point of view all the rooms have good light for photography.

Recent Weddings-Claire & Andrew

Here are a selection of shots from a recent wedding I shot in London.
It makes life very easy when you have such an attractive bride and groom. The bride in this case was also on the West End stage which probably helped too.

My Wedding Photography

This is a blog, exclusively for my wedding photography. ( I will add wedding photos and wedding photography related stuff. I don't really know what that might include but I do get a lot of emails from people wanting advise about becoming wedding photographers, so I can relate some of my opinions and perhaps some comments about technique, and maybe a little about the equipment I use, although this probably will be very little as I'm not one of those photographers . Nikon is better than Canon though!! Only joking, it's that kind of thing that I want to avoid, I find it very dull. That's not to say that the equipment isn't important though. A Nikon DSLR will do the same job as a Canon DSLR or any other DSLR for that matter. A rangefinder will do a different job and a large format 5x4 will do a different job again. This is where the difference between equipment is apparent, not between Nikon or Canon.

I'll just say a little bit about the kind of wedding photography I do for those of you who don't know. I'm a wedding photojournalist, as opposed to a formal wedding photographer. I photograph a wedding in much the same way as I would document any other event, event is perhaps misleading because although a wedding is undoubtedly an event, sometimes when nothing is happening is the best time to shoot, producing the best images.
This is one of the things that distinguishes a professional from an amateur photographer. You will often see people reaching for there cameras to photograph an event, cake cutting for example, but then they put the camera down again.

I do not put my camera down during a whole wedding, this is sometimes 14 or 15 hours. This doesn't mean I am shooting the whole time but it does mean I am looking the whole time.
