Being a wedding photographer in cornwall means that when new year is over and January comes around, wedding meetings with potential couples that wish to invest into my services normally fills my calendar. Its the time of year when either couples get engaged over Christmas or have got Christmas and new year out of the way and now start thinking about planning a wedding. Over the last few weeks I have been to meeting all over Devon & Cornwall and one a little further afield, and each time I talk through a digital and non digital portfolio of mine. In these meetings I often talk about my use of space or distance.
Using space to create atmosphere and show the bigger picture and using distance to create an unobtrusive documentary feel to a large bulk of your wedding pictures.
I have picked a few pictures below to demonstrate my ideas and uses of space in wedding photography. Shooting wide or from a distance to involve more of the what is going on in the day. I of course often shoot the close and tight shots as well, in order to really get emotion in faces and fine detail of the tables, however often a wide shot tells so much more of the story in a natural way. Genuine moments as they happen.
Below are a handful of pictures that I explain the stores behind on initial meetings. I am a big believer in letting you see as much as you like, not just what I think is the cream on top of the strawberries. In fact at my last meeting the bride to be flicked through well over 1000 pictures, including two full weddings.
Weekend availability this year is still available on some dates. Contact me to check my availability.
