Celebrations at the Studio - 10 Years as a Wedding photographer today!

January 22, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

On 22 January 2005 I was doing my Degree in Photography at the University of Westminster in London, and after much persuasion by a good friend, given that photographing people has always been my passion, I agreed to shoot my first wedding .... with much, much nerves.

These nerves were not helped by the following:

1. Freezing temperatures which froze my camera batteries temporarily (put that on a list of things not to tell the bride on the day!)
2. A cranky vicar who banned all photography in the church saying that a 'wedding was not a multi-media event' - but I figured very quickly that he couldn't hear my camera shutter during the hymns...
3. Knowing that I needed to rely on total instinct to shoot the wedding.

I am glad to say that the essence of wedding photography - beautiful portraits, capturing relationships, making people feel at ease in front of the camera, having some fun & storytelling - were where my instincts took me and I know now, 10 years later that these are still the essence of beautiful wedding photography..... and a bit of Irish charm always helps) Here are a few images from that January day in 2005.
