Wow, it’s been a while since my last post! Just over a month and so much has happened. I took a bit of time out at the end of July/start of August for a couple of weeks in the sun, which I’ll be shedding some more light on in the coming blogs (it really won’t fit into just one post…I got a bit snap-happy and to tell you the truth I took a frightening amount of photographs) – the processing has taken some time and will take a while longer, but hopefully the results will be worth it in the end!
A week after coming back I had a wedding shoot for Charleigh and Matthew. There’s always an element of nail biting in the week leading up to the wedding as I become increasingly obsessed with the weather and what it may or may not be doing on the day itself, and despite it looking a bit iffy a couple of days before we managed to stay mostly dry for the day. The rain set in at the reception but left us with some beautiful light for a couple shoot session as we moved around a handful of different locations in the nearby area. For any photographers out there, this was my first shoot with my latest acquisition as a second camera body – a Canon 1D. For any non-photographers out there, it’s a square, slightly strange looking beast of a camera. I’m pleased with the pictures it takes and it wasn’t as weighty as I thought it was going to be after 8 hours hanging off my neck, but that’s all a bit irrelevant. I understand that you’ll all think I’ve lost the plot when I say this, and maybe it’s the musician in me coming out, but the noise the camera makes when you take a picture is second to none. Phwoar…it’s the most satisfying ‘click-click’ I think I’ve ever heard. Nerd-alert over. Back to the wedding….
Overall, the day was absolutely fantastic and really echoed the sentiments from my previous blogs about how it’s really the emotions we’re trying to capture over everything else going on throughout the day. After around 1-2 weeks of post processing here is a small sample of some of the results. Safe to say, I’m really happy with how these have come out and I definitely believe that they are another clear representation of the natural style we shoot in. Enjoy!
