There are endless articles on the internet regarding (shout this bit out loudly) “THE REAL COST OF WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY”. It seems that wedding photographers around the world have collectively decided that their salvation lies in telling the world just how expensive their shiny new PRO equipment costs. And once clients realise just how tough it is to run a wedding photography business because they also have to pay tax then they’ll be falling over themselves to pay our fees.
I thought of this as I took my car for an MOT today. Ooh, those car lifting thngymyjigs look expensive. I’d better bung the mechanic a few extra quid to help out. You see, all these articles about the costs of doing business as a photographer are irrelevant and embarrassing. A bit like Premier League footballers moaning about the rising cost of football boots. Clients don’t care, and it’s not going to make anybody pay any more for your services. It might make burglars turn up at your house.

Photo details: This picture was taken at the destination wedding of Maria and Andreas at Piccolo Paradiso in Italy. The wedding had one of the most incredible light shows I have ever seen at a wedding. It was seriously dark though and I resorted to manually focussing here as the 5Dmk2 absolutely refused to focus in this low light. Shot with the 24mm at 1/80s, f/1.4, 6400 iso.
About the photographer: My aim is simple; to provide the most unique and beautiful collection of photographs telling the story of your special day. Photographs that will last a lifetime and beyond.
Photo details: I took this photo at Trystan and Emma's wedding in Wales last year. It was one of those dark November grey days but there was just enough light to catch this as they exited the church. It's quie a slow shutter speed because the light was fading and when one of Trystan's ushers emptied a whole box of confetti over his head I was lucky enought to get the shot. I always prefer a spontaneous confetti throwing moment rather than a staged image.
The shot is available light and processed in Silver FXPro
About the photographer: I am a documentary wedding photographer based in London and covering the whole of the UK and destinations abroad.
