Photo Title: I Just Want To Be Around You!
Photo details: I love this dramatic circular entrance to the Orangery at Hanbury Manor in Hertfordshire. The strong architectural element required only the simplest of pose for the bride and groom, placement being key for the symmetry of the photograph.
The soft tones of the wall compliment the warm tones in the wedding gown, the trees, gates and path add depth.
This picture was 'a must' for Marion & Jamie's wedding album!

It's hard work photographing weddings
“Do I need to provide my wedding photographer with a meal?” YES! I have the proof that wedding photographers need to take on the same calories as a Tour de France cyclist or they will faint during the speeches.
When I turned 50 a few years ago, I realised I was in a bit of trouble. The good years had been a bit too good for me and shooting 2 - 3 weddings a week had suddenly become tough. I was over-weight and out of condition. Back to back Summer weddings in the heat, with all the stress and logistical nightmares, had grown so exhausting that I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to continue into my 50’s unless I restricted my workload to one wedding a week. Unfortunately, this just wouldn’t work financially, and so I decided to get back in shape to cope with the workload. I joined the gym and went on a diet. It all went OK for the first six months but as anyone who has ever tried this will tell you - it gets really boring! On the verge of giving up I did what every professional photographer would do and bought a gadget.

Photo Title: Tuscan Bride
Photo details: The portrait is of stunning bride Fernanda shot at Villa Magiacane, Florence. The sun was disappearing fast when i suggested to Fernanda we shoot some pictures in the beautiful gardens. I shot through some glass ornaments hanging from a tree to give the image depth and the backlit sun offered some interesting bokeh.
About the photographer: I specialise in beautiful, stylish and creative contemporary documentary wedding photography. By documenting what unfolds I captures the essence of the wedding - the laughter, the tears, the joy and all of the emotions of the day. London based, I have photographed weddings from Cornwall to the Orkney Islands, Florence and Marrakech.

Wedding photography looks great printed in an album
A wedding is obviously an auspicious occasion and everyone wants those moments to stay afresh forever. Capturing those wonderful moments is best done with a perfect photo album design. However, to get things right and thus impress your customers, you have to pay attention towards a lot of elements. Prominent among the said are detailed below.
Lowered Opacity: There are certain photos that easily grab the viewer’s attention. This can cause him to lose a visual direction and the gracefulness of other images gets almost unnoticed. Lowering opacity of such images helps in manipulating the viewer’s focus. Gradient Fades: These furnish a lax transition between photos.
Gradient Fades can also be used for hiding certain parts of the pictures. Darker images are made to fade into black background and lighter pictures are usually dwindled to white backgrounds. Images on one another: There are certain instances when smaller images are positioned on larger ones by album design companies. This can be helpful when there is only limited space. Sequence actions can also be conveyed via this inset effect.
Blocks and Bars: When images fail to fit to a particular page, bars can be used for filling the remaining space. Also they provide framing. Blocks work well when an image collection doesn’t complete a rectangular shape.
