While I have been busily working on a variety of projects this year, including planning my own wedding, sometimes things have to give a little, and the blog has been the victim of neglect yet again.
Thankfully I have been able to photograph some fantastic weddings, with more fantastic weddings ahead! One of the most recent was that of my good friend Sharon and her new husband David, I was really happy with the photos, but some stand out more than others, and when they say a photo speaks a thousand words, it is certainly true when you can see every ounce of emotion in a bride while her father is making his speech.
This image was taken using the Canon L 70-200mm f2.8 IS lens on full zoom with the aperture wide open to create as much foreground and background blur as possible, and a colour image would not have done this justice, black and white was the only real option here. I think it creates a prefect record of how emotional her fathers speech was to her. For me, it represents how I like to capture as much as I can without getting directly involved in certain parts of the day. Perfect timing!
