Why I Like This Photograph No.14

Hi everybody, and welcome back to my 'Why I Like This Photograph' blog series, where I love to show you an image that I've taken during a wedding. Last year Karla & Scott had their wedding service at St James The Great Church in Old Milverton on the outskirts of Royal Leamington Spa, and then held their wedding reception at the Woodside (Hotel) in Kenilworth here in Warwickshire. It was a gorgeous summers day in August, which really helped things along nicely. One lovely aspect of the Woodside wedding venue is that there are plenty of options of where to capture couple photographs.
After taking a number of safe formal photos, to get them in the bag so to speak - it was time for me to be a little more creative. There is a large orchard in the grounds of the venue, and somewhere where I like to visit. In this case I wanted to give the photo a sense of location. Granted the apple tree almost dominates the image, however I feel it adds nicely to the environment of the venue that they had specifically chosen. My preferred way of shooting is to capture photos that are natural looking, and often shot in a discreet and unobtrusive manner - however occasionally during the course of a wedding day, as a wedding photographer, I need to quickly capture some formal photos. Do come back soon for another in this series. Martin.
