Wedding Photographer's Blog
One of the many responsibilities of a wedding photographer is to make sure that images are captured on the wedding day, and stored safely to ensure against loss. That means backing them up many times, fair enough, and no problem at all. I won't go into detail how I go about the process during this blog post. However I'd like to point out that even as a professional photographer, it takes strict discipline. So how about the rest of you, how often do you back up your own photos? Go on, be honest, whether you use a smartphone or a compact camera to take photos. So why do I mention this, and what has this got to do with wedding albums?
Last September saw the gorgeous wedding of Kate and Mark in Coventry, with their celebrations held across the Warwickshire border in Leamington Spa. Their wedding service took place at the All Souls Church in Coventry, and they had a marquee set up ready to go at Leamington Spa Cricket Club. I had visited Kate the day before the wedding, at the marquee, whilst it was being prepared. At that very early stage, I had a gut feeling that the next day was going to go really well due to the attention to detail, but also importantly how relaxed everyone appeared to be.
I know that the festive period feels like quite a while ago, but hands up if you consumed too much? Yep, thought as much, me too. So I wonder if writing a blog post about wedding cakes is a little cruel if some of us are trying shed the pounds, hopefully not. Last year I wrote a post about wedding flowers, click here for the link, and I really wanted to write a similar one about cakes. Let me explain why I think wedding photographers have a responsibility in recording the wedding cake away from the cake cutting moment.
Back in September saw the wedding of Steph and Tom in Coventry, followed by celebrations at Coombe Abbey the fabulous wedding venue in the Warwickshire countryside. It was a great experience being their wedding photographer, and helping me on the day was my friend and fellow photographer Cathy. Tom's family had travelled down from Scotland, with Steph's family based in Coventry. Steph and Tom were in the midst of moving house to Lincoln in the build up to the wedding day, which made it a hectic period for them, but everything slotted into place perfectly.
"What kind of a blog post title is that on a wedding photographer's website?" I hear you cry. It's a fair question, and I've a rather tenuous answer. December can often be a quiet month for the wedding industry, compared to the summer months. So I took the opportunity a few weeks ago to leave the lowlands of Warwickshire, and head out to the wintery French Alps. Regular readers of this blog page may remember I love being in the mountains, and in particular putting on a pair of skis. Oh, and of course taking some of my camera kit as well.
My open and personal approach means you’ll feel completely at ease with me on the big day.
