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.
Photo details: The last shot of the day at one of my favourite venues, South Farm in Cambridgeshire. I had so much fun shooting this gorgeous couple's special day.
About the photographer: Hi, I'm Minna, a friendly, full time wedding and event photographer based in London. I shoot in a relaxed documentary style, with lots of candid and naturally posed portraits. I always work to my client's brief so we can add as many (or few) group photos with your family and friends, detail shots and fun, romantic, but relaxed, couple's portraits of just the two of you in to the mix to really tell the story of your day.
Photo details: This was a totally unposed and natural moment between the mother who was buttoning Lisa's dress and Lisa's sister who burst into tears when she went to kiss her sibling. I took a few and hoped for the best. This is my favourite in terms of composition and tenderness and simply capturing an unrepeatable moment which is what all of my photography is about.... I think.
