Black and White or Colour?

A tip when shooting scenes with clutter.

Black and white images helps to remove distractions and clutter that may be present and are are more noticeable in colour   This effect is particularly useful for me with the photography of the brides final preparations.  

For example the image here shows distracting elements, an iron, ironing board and television, however,  in black and white their impact is reduced and allows the viewer to concentrate on the intended subject, the bride and her helpers

Moddershall Oaks Wedding Photography - Stephanie & Lee

I have been lucky enough to photograph several weddings at the beautiful wedding venue Moddershall Oaks,  being such a wonderful location should be enough for me but I have the bonus of living no more than 3 miles away, so it's really convenient   This latest visit was for the wedding of Stephanie and Lee on the 9th of June 2018

I had been booked for 5 hours, so Sandra and I stayed up to the wedding breakfast when we went home, returning a couple of hours later after the speeches, to capture the cutting of the cake and the first dance.

I can't afford to be quite so flexible at most venues, but if you are getting married at Moddershall Oaks I can usually split the coverage on the day to suit your budget if required.

A  Wedding Album - To Purchase or Not to Purchase? - That is the Question! 

The first look an American trend.

"The First Look" - 5 minutes before the ceremony - Kristiana and Tony

Like many things that start in America the "First Look" crossed the Atlantic and arrived in Blighty some five years ago, ten years after it first appeared in the U.S.  

For couples who want to see each other before the ceremony this affords their photographer the opportunity to capture photographs that document the emotion of the moment in a sequence of images.

 That is not to say that similar emotion cannot be seen when couples first make eye contact in the aisle of the church.  Although non-traditional and not for everyone, for a number of brides who wish to see their groom in advance of the ceremony, this provides another option.

This wedding was held at Newcastle under Lyme Registration office.  The couple booked me for 3 hours, the minimum time I offer. However, this gave me time to photograph the couple arriving,  the ceremony and still have time for some shots in Brampton park located adjacent to the venue.
