I love wedding photography. I love the experience and exposure that i get with it. For example, this was a Muslim wedding. I had never done one before so this was my first time. It happened in a duration of two days.
The first day was at the house and it was actually the main ceremony where the certificate was signed. The second day was pretty much a celebration of sorts.
On the second day, the morning preparation happened as usual. We didn’t start as early as i am used to. For most weddings, i am usually requested to be at the bride’s place by 6.30 am. Not this one though.
Joyce was my school mate at USIU. So it was easy for us to converse and just familiarize.
It was my first time working with Jazanda films. They were a wonderful crew to work with and we always looked out for each other.
She pulled quite a surprise on me. I don’t know whether she had rehearsed her poses but she worked it well. I was quite impressed.
I have to admit that this was my longest photo session ever. Yes, it took over 5 hours. Partly due to the fact that it was day two and what was to follow was the reception so expect quite a number of photos from the photo session alone.
I rarely do this but when i have time to shoot single portraits of the bridal party, why not. The house i was shooting from had a massive mirror that i utilized. It provided for very clean reflections.
The groomsmen were not looking so bad either.
After that, i went to shoot outside since the place was quite spacious.
We had exhausted the outdoor bit so i opted to shoot the bride and groom indoors once again.
The reception was at lions place. That is the one day i realized decor matters a lot. It can really makes a difference on how your photos come out. We then went back to the house for the final photo session.
I love to capture ambiance at night, as evidenced in the photos above. I believe it does add quite a bit of character to an image. But there can be limits on getting that at night sometimes.
Have a great week everyone 🙂
