Britsoc Photo Lesson #7 – On a wedding day, the story is everywhere

Technical details; Nikon D700. AF-S Nikkor 17-35mm, f/6.3, ISO 500 @ 1/125s

This shot is typical of my photo-journalistic style for weddings and the lesson is a simple one; a good wedding photographer understands that on your wedding day the story can be found anywhere and everywhere. Sure, the focus is on the bride (especially) and the groom but the guests add life and fun to your day. Often the pictures the bride and groom will delight in most will be the ones taken without them knowing what’s going on!

Taken this summer in London at an Armenian wedding, it shows the ring bearer excitedly showing off the ring cushion to assorted guests prior to the bride’s arrival.

If you are getting married or know of anyone planning a wedding in 2015 in the Netherlands or the UK, why not pass my details on to them?
