Megan and Larry’s wedding.
Here’s one that slipped past me. Megan and Larry were married in Mildura some time ago. Seems just yesterday but trust me it wasn’t. No excuse for the lateness. Just the same old to much to do, to little time to do it..
Anyway it was a great day, and everyone had a great time. We took way to many photos… Which is about normal for us. I always panic after the wedding and think that I haven’t taken enough. Then Robyn goes to design the album and…. Yup you guessed it. Way overshot again. Guess its better to overshoot than not have enough.
We caught up with Megan. Set up a whole bunch of studio lighting in the lounge and then shot this beautiful portrait by window light in a bedroom. You just gotta go with the flow. It’s the picture that counts, not how you got it.
We skipped over a fair few photos here. Now we’re inside that well know bar and wedding photography location. Yes we did a few of the normal things. Then I decided to try something a little different and went for a wide angled environmental style portrait in black and white. This one I know didn’t make the final cut… But I liked it and nobody is watching!!!
Still at the pub. This time shooting into the strong window light and letting things all flare out. Very reminiscent of the Pastel Portrait style of photography we first introduced into Australia 25 years ago. Funny how styles like fashion just seem to go around in circles.
Over to Ampelon Gardens for some formal style wedding portraits… Excuse me you guys… I said formal. Seems Larry and Megan needed a couple of minutes together before we got into the photography. Id love to say the colour in this photo is exactly as was on the day… But that would be fibbing. We added a little…. ok a lot of saturation in post production. I wanted to get that warm winter light feeling.
Ok… The quality of light stays good for us as we finish up out at Chateau Mildura. However the quantity of said light is fast diminishing. As in It’s almost dark. Stand still Megan and Larry. Don’t breath, don’t blink and definitely don’t move while we take this shot. From memory we cheated a bit for this image. I’m pretty certain we had an Elinchrom Ranger location flash unit with a great big soft box just popping a little extra light onto Megan and Larry.
