My wedding photography is generally very laid back. I like to capture moments between a couple that tell the story of their wedding day. When a photographer gets too involved in posing a couple, the photo becomes more about the guy behind the camera, than the couple having the wedding. Having said that, I have a whole bunch of wedding photos in my head that are a bit ‘out there’ and involve specific poses and locations. I file these away and wait for a couple to come along that I think will be up for the idea I have in mind.
In the past these shots have involved everything from grooms flying through the air to skull and cross bones. And this weekend I’ll be pushing the boundaries of what a wedding photo can be with another of my little experiments. Each time I do one of these photographs I still produce all the other shots I would but I ask permission and see if the bride and groom are up for the idea.
The great thing about the vision I have for the image is it is going to be super easy for the bride and groom but it has required extensive location scouting and will really push my skills, the abilities of my camera gear and take extensive post processing- but it’s going to look great. Fingers crossed that the weather plays ball on Saturday.
