It may just be because I’m a wedding photographer but I really think that the photo shoot is a particularly special part of every wedding day.
I usually give the couple about 15-30 minutes after the ceremony to have hugs, kisses and a glass of champagne with loved friends and family. After that we do ‘the photo shoot’ or whatever you like to call it. By this I mean the couple and I (and bridal party if they’ve got one) go for a walk and take some photos. It’s a chance for the couple to really be in the moment and let their hair down after the formalities of the ceremony. There’s always a lot of love and a lot of laughs, sometimes some tears too.
Selfishly, I get a real buzz being a fly on the wall during such a special moment for the couple. Emotion is what I thrive on and aim to capture on my photos.
When I’m blogging a wedding, this part of the day often gets lost about 2/3 of the way through and condensed into just a few shots. Naomi and Doryan’s entire wedding day was magic, but I loved their photo shoot so much, just to switch it up a bit, I thought I’d skip the entree and main and go straight to desert.
