Autumn is my absolute favourite time to photograph just about anything involving people. Weddings are no exception. All was good, for Natalee and Joey’s big day, except that old mother nature forgot what season it was. Brrrr…. Freeze the whiskers off a Snow Leopard, I kid you not. As it turned out, the cold didn’t seem to make any difference. The all day party just kept on getting better.
As is normally the case with our bigger wedding celebrations, we started off by paying the boys a visit. Serious stuff this getting ready for a wedding. Joey with his dad making sure the lapel flowers are just perfect.
And of course the rest of the boys we’re doing their bit to keep things quiet and serious in nature. This is one of Robyn’s captures from our second camera.
Then it was a quick trip over to see how the girls were getting along with their preparations. More of the same really. Serious stuff getting ready for a wedding. Natalee and mum, just about ready to go.
Brief interlude to take a couple of snaps of important little accessories. In this case a bottle of perfume. Photographed against the window. Naturally we also shot some really nice wedding photos of the flower girls and Natalee in the same location.
Then off to the bedroom for some more serious beauty portraits. Not hard if you have someone who looks amazing like Nat did. The room was naturally light in tone so made it easy to do some high-key bridal portraits.
Really like this under the veil image. We’ve been doing a few of these lately with really strong dramatic lighting. So today it was a change to create a very soft flat light and treat it to a simple high-key effect during post production.
We’ve skipped along a few million photos now. This was at our second wedding photography location. The first was indoors for some drama filled images. Then we stepped out for some dramatic close ups in this doorway. All of a sudden there was a gust of wind. We had to do a bit of quick-step to get into position, but made it in time to capture a great fun series of the veil doing its own thing.
Yet another location. One which we’ve used before but never like this. Robyn again shooting with our second camera for this close up of Natalee and Joey.
Some time spent down the street, with a bunch of really cool wheels. and a couple of pretty darn cool people.
Then we went for a walk. Luckily there was next to no traffic, so we got away with a bit of Jay-walking. Natalee is probably not going to like this shot. There are many more, which are more flattering but I liked the gesture and feel of this one.
Our final locations was Art Back cafe and gallery in Wentworth. Where it could be said the normal Saturday afternoon tranquility may have be disturbed by our boisterous and somewhat loud shenanigans. We shot some chilling shots. Some cafe culture images and then went outside to play in the autumn leaves. All in all a great day.
