How Important is the Groom to the Photographer?

The wedding day is one of the most important days in a girl’s life and most of the attention and glamour is drawn to the bride. Her beautiful dress, the extravagant limousine, a lace embroidered veil, colourful flowers and the harmony of music playing as her shining knight waits to stand by her side …. all contribute to her fairy-tale story.

“With this Ring I Thee Wed … ” – the history of the wedding ring

  Ancient belief has it that the wedding ring originated from early Egypt. Sedges, rushes and reeds were twisted and braided into rings and bracelets. These rings, of course, did not last very long and was, over time, replaced by rings made of bone, ivory or leather. Still later it was replaced by metal rings. First metal that was used was iron, and it symbolized the strength of a man's love for his wife. … [Read More...]

The Art of Make-up Photography

Make-up photography is one of my favorite subjects. You have the opportunity to - - capture an artist at work, - witness the birth of a swan, and - intense, yet relaxed, interaction between people. Composition is of the utmost importance to get a good make-up photo. In this photo I focussed on the eyes of both the make-up artist (Eloise) and the bride (Nanette).

Don’t forget the Detail…

The detail photos are so often neglected during the wedding ceremony while this is the only means for the couple to nurture their memories afterwards. The bride normally arrives at the ceremony after the guests have entered the reception hall.  At that stage she is so overwhelmed by everything that she doesn’t have the time to pay any attention to the detail that were so meticulously prepared and … [Read More...]

Oceanside Beachside Wedding

Always be ready for the unexpected!  What was meant to be a walk on the Oceanside pier, a popular tourist attraction in San Diego, CA, turned into a brilliant photo opportunity. Down on the beach we spotted this pirate themed wedding ceremony.  All guests were dressed like pirates and the “priest”  like a monk - so authentic, that it could have been real pirates and a real monk complete with a swash … [Read More...]

Weddings in the Renaissance Period

In the medieval ages, the consent of the father of the bride was more important than … [Read More...]
