Wedding Photography Blog - Megan & Tom

July 07, 2020  •  6 Comments

So this is a weird summer. As the world has ground to a halt due to the pandemic, weddings have been halted - rightly so of course. The weddings that I had been signed up to capture have been rescheduled to next year.

But that leaves this year's blog a bit devoid of wedding joy, and instead full of empty shop fronts in York.

However, I do have some previous weddings that I have not blogged about before, for whatever reason (usually too busy).

Megan & Tom

So I have gone back two years to 2018, to a lovely early June wedding, that of Megan and Tom, genuinely one of my favourite weddings I have captured (I try not to have favourites). They were married in Harrogate, but before that I jumped on an old bus with them and some friends and family in the middle of the Yorkshire Dales, to capture the journey to the registry office (and then back). The celebrations continued back in the Dales, in Grassington, in a gorgeous field with gazebo.

I think what really made this one were the people - not least the couple themselves who I loved getting to know, but also the fantastic family and friends. Of course, this is not unusual for me, I naturally am drawn to people, to relationships, to interactions...over anything static or staged (but which still can have their place).

I think these photos below exude that naturalness I aim to capture in my documentary style.

And I tell you what, having the Dales as a back-drop isn't half handy either.

(As was my parents living a stone's throw from the celebrations, too!)

There are many different styles and locations you will photograph. The camera you will use may need to change at a moment’s notice.

That means offering the ability to work in high ISO and full-frame sensor size. Having great focusing points will also help.

Shooting in RAW is a necessity, as this will give you more play when it comes to editing. Your system needs to be able to deal with different lenses too. You will need to use a wide variety of primes, or fast zoom lenses with great resolving power and extended focal range.

Having the best camera equipment is very important in being a professional wedding photographer.

You need a full-frame DSLR or mirrorless system that can handle everything this type of event can throw at you.

Also, having a backup camera (or two) will make sure that you are covered if something happens.

Thanks Donna! I spend the whole day circulating and keeping an eye out for interesting interactions, poses, looks, and trying to anticipate what is going to happen next. It's great fun!
