Wedding supplier collective

Wow, June was a busy month.  A few months back I was asked to be part of a collective of wedding suppliers from the North East.  We organised a shoot to show off everyones products and services. All of which will be listed under the images.I was determined to shoot the images in the style of my normal wedding coverage, so basically only using natural light and one speedlight as required.  The speedlight was used in a mid sized lastolite ezybox.


This last image was shot as a Fashion image using two speed lights. One speed light to camera left in the soft box and one lighting the the white tree.


The suppliers involved in the shoot were:

Venue: Eslington Villa

Wedding boudoir

As part of my wedding photography package I have introduced a wedding boudoir option.  I decided to try and get some examples for my portfolio and although I would like everything to be natural and on assignment, sometimes you need to cheat a little bit.  So we found a model that would be willing to fulfil our requirements.  We have worked with Jo once before and luckily enough she was free and also had a wedding dress, which we could use for the shoot.  I wanted to shoot this as though it was a wedding shoot so I had Jo pretend to get ready in her bridal underwear, before putting on the dress.  It was mostly shot with available light, with some fill thrown in, using lights which would be similar to what I would use at a wedding.I am pleased with the results and it was obviously easier with somebody who is comfortable in front of the camera with very little clothing on.
