Photo details: Sunset at Hedsor House, Taplow Berkshire. This was shot using the Canon 5D Mk3's built-in HDR feature to stack multiple exposures, retaining detail in both the sky and the house. Lens used was the Canon 24-70 F2.8 L, handheld at ISO 3200.
About the photographer: I'm always looking for interesting ways to tell the story of a wedding day - whether it's a winter wedding at a stately home like this one or a beach wedding with just the couple somewhere warm and tropical! I am based in Guildford Surrey but shoot weddings throughout the UK and overseas.
Isn’t it about time that we all threw in the towel and stopped trying to sell wedding albums to clients. The phrase flogging a dead horse comes to mind. Printed images are a thing of the past anyway, and brides just don’t seem receptive to the idea of paying an extra £700 or so on top of the fees for photography anymore. Who can blame them? Wedding albums are finished.
The problem is the album manufacturers. They have totally ruined the business.
Back in what photographers now call ‘the good old days’ every client booked a wedding album, and all wedding photographers offered very similar products at very similar prices. Lovely leather bound matted albums were the order of the day, filled with beautiful properly printed photographs on real photographic paper. Lovely objects lovingly made and treasured by clients and their families for generations. Then came the ‘Storybooks, wedding albums with the images printed on the pages and bound together into book form.
