Now that’s a Leg

When it comes to doing the wedding dress hung up shot you need to arrange things so it extenuates the dress yet with a good focal point too, and what better way than with a wonderful willing bride to show her gorgeous leg. Here Elizabeth was stood to the left in her PJ shorts and top perched precariously on another chair while Wayne assisted me by holding the ceiling lampshade out of shot. It took us several attempts but I think we nailed it in the end. Very sexy shot with the dress and garter text in detail. I would say that if you have a lamp in shot, turn it on, it adds to the image and give purpose rather than just being a prop.



Below is another image of the fantastic staircase at The Met Hotel, Leeds. I could probably spend a day shooting this place, brilliant deco architecture brought tastefully into the modern.







The Met, Leeds Staircase and a wonderful couple

The Met Hotel, Leeds has a fantastic staircase that lends itself to a wedding perfectly, shooting up and down and across really works well, especially with the huge portrait windows that floods light across the couple. The examples here from Michael and Elizabeths wedding show how well the staircase frames the couple and allows for different angles to be employed.




Some Wedding Pictures Are Made To Be Classic

Often said that Black and White images transform the picture into a classic tone, non more so than the two below, firstly the glamorous Elizabeth in that wonderful dress, it was a black and white themed wedding so it seemed only fitting that they should have a few done this way to extenuate the theme and give a classic 50’s feel to their special day. The window to the right adding subtle rays to her face and wall behind,  just balance by the main stairs light to the left casting a warm glow to her dress and right side, a Lowel Gl-1 adding a lit oval behind her.























The second picture gives you the full staircase and beautiful deco windows of the Hotel Met, Leeds, along nicely positioned LOVE letters it’s set to gives you the impression it’s the end of their day and that they are going to bed. Great timing with the suns rays illuminating  the staircase perfectly for me, just added some back light to the couple with 2 x Lowel GL-1’s, one with the 82b filter on, also one LED array to the left. Classy couple Classy shot, job done.



Wedding Pictures

























Another of my trademark wedding shots, this time the groom and his best man looking longingly and lovingly into each others eyes whilst handcuffed together. Michael and Darryl were so up for this, maybe a tad too much fellas!
























Darryl had the funniest picture on his phone so we made a focal point of it, laughed so much it took away the nerves of the day for a while….not quite sure where the key was, thought it best not to ask
