A selection from Áine & David's recent wedding, this was my first wedding in quite a while. Time to shake off the travel cobwebs and focus on doing a good job on the day. The weather had been amazing the few days before the wedding, just turned a little grey and what I call "top heavy" on the day, but hey, its Ireland, I take anything thats not wind and rain with both hands. My first wedding with my newly aquired Lens Changer bag from ThinkTank, the freedom it gives is amazing...no more clumsy rucksacks as I can fit exactly what I need into the bag
A hill overlooking Carlos Paz was the reception location of my last wedding, its about 40 minutes outside Cordoba in north western Argentina. It was a slightly overcast day which is the best weather for portrait photography. The church was beautiful, the reception had stunning views on the surrounds and everyone was out to have a good time.
Assistance on the day was from the fantastic Alma shooting with her Canon 550D and a 24-70 F2.8
Here are a few of my favourites and a slideshow link
Some pictures from a recent wedding, the other side of the river Suir from me in Kilmokea, County Wexford.This was a fabulous wedding to shoot, fantastic bride, really easy going couple who just wanted to enjoy the day. Off on a fantastic honeymoon to south east asia!
The weather was fantastic, great athmosphere at the wedding, I just had to be there. Mostly natural light except for some of the formals. The day flew past and thats always a good sign.
One of my favourite weddings from this summer, day went so smooth and I really could not have asked for a nicer couple. Day started fabulous, cup a tea with the brides father, turn out he went to school with my own father and uncle. The lighting at the brides house was a challenge, mix of tunsten and natural window light...but I have always felt a challenge makes you think. Nice size church with plenty of room to move around in, I hate to be confined to certain spots, more I can move the more options. The reception was in Garryvoe, I have to recommend the hotel as the staff there do a great job. Advantage of middle summer weddings is the light, after the meal was over we went for a walk onto the nearby beach to get some of the last light and it was a chance to relax for the bride and groom.
For the photographers that read my blog, all the shots are natural light with no flash used except for the formal posed shots where I used one 100cm elinchrom octa powered by the Ranger kit and the first dance is multi speedlite radio triggered shot to cross light the dancefloor
