On a beautiful day in November, we photographed Amy and Tony’s wedding.
Starting our day in Victoria, we quickly moved interstate for Amy and Tony’s wedding photography and reception. All sounds rather posh doesn’t it? Especially to people unaware that the interstate trip takes all of five minutes. However, I digress, we are here to show you pictures from Amy and Tony’s wedding, not talk about interstate travel.
We sneaked this image while Amy was preparing for her wedding day. I think she was prepping some jewellery for us to photograph. From home, we headed off to the Grand Hotel for a garden wedding ceremony. Then to Apex Park, and that is where we will pick-up the rest of the wedding photography.
Choosing locations for your wedding photos is always problematic. Ideally, we would select somewhere with some meaning to the couple, or at the very least some place that they love. On this day it was a natural choice. Amy and Tony enjoy the outdoors. Surrounded by massive gum trees as well as an expansive inland beach.
Still under the gum trees at Apex Park. We found some soft glamourous light to with which to play. Full sunshine over the Murray River and beach area combined with dabbled sunlight resulted in our high-key background.
Chasing light at the Inland Botanical Gardens. We use to call this an establishing shot. It was always a TV news camera operators first shot walking up to any news scene. It allowed the news editor to orientate themselves. Today we use the establishing shot to give a sense of place in the design of a wedding album.
The same location photographed from a different perspective. The soft out of focus foliage compliments a beautiful couple lost in a moment on their wedding day.
Just around the corner a sea of white roses and way too many photographic opportunities. We shot this location with long lenses to make use of the low backlighting sun and some atmospherics starting to come into play.
Beautiful late light combines with a mass of tiny pink miniature roses and a stunningly beautiful bride. I believe picture perfect used to describe this scene.
A light and airy rendition of the rose gardens. Late sun, plus lots of lens flare.
Then finally a car shot with lens flare. This image is out of sequence as we created it upon arrival at the gardens. But we won’t tell if you don’t.
