Wedding photographer: Miracle-Moments wedding photographer London
Photo Title: Wedding Portrait
Photo details: Flares on the photo were done on the wedding day. It is not photoshopped thing, but I will keep details about it as my secret :D
About the photographer: Hi, I am Bart and I drink too much coffee and eat spicy food, especially when I grow chillies in my garden.
I work as a wedding photographer and I am based in London but during my career, I shoot more wedding outside of the London and some destination weddings, so I can say I cover pretty much every part of the world. I am always happy to meet new people, photographers so if you bored and wanna chat, hit me up.
Photo details: This was taken towards the end of a beautiful event with one of the most laid back, charming couples (Rachel and James - both doctors) I ever met - being one of the reasons I love this job! They suggested the boat ride in the rain so who was I to refuse. The fact that the groom clearly doesn't know one end of a skiff from the other just adds to the charm. I don't recall technical details...probably my old 180mm Manual Nikon judging from the depth of field and perspective....but it's not so important. Its one of my favourite images from this year.
About the photographer: My name is Jason Pierce-Williams and I have been studying, teaching and shooting all areas of photography for over twenty years. I'm based in SW London but have shot events and weddings all over the world, including India, Poland, Germany, Spain and Italy to name a few. My first class degree is in photography and I have taught all levels and areas of photography for many years. I have often exhibited abroad and here at The National Portrait Gallery. My wedding photography is very much like my street and portrait work....natural, simple, candid....and very observational.
People often ask me ‘What do wedding photographers do during the week?’ And I’ll roll out my stock answer, ‘ There is an awful amount of work to be done before and after any wedding - planning, post-production, album design blah blah blah’. The reality is we spend most of the week on Facebook moaning about the business. There are countless secret groups devoted to wedding photography on social media. Referral groups, networking groups but mainly whining groups. Bookings are now so thin on the ground for many photographers that complaining has become the default state for those in the wedding industry.
It's not all doom and gloom though. On one of the groups, I’m a member of, a couple of London based photographers have been waxing lyrical about a current boom they are experiencing. According to them, business has never been better - so good that one of them can even afford to switch to the new ‘must-have' camera system - the Sony A9. He must be raking it in!
