I spy with my little lens…..

In early February , Marianne and I had the pleasure of photographing Skye & Brad’s wedding around the Adelaide CBD. A big congratulations to you for what was a fabulous day, and best wishes to you for the future! For the topic of today’s blog, I thought we’d share some of the images taken from different perspectives and focal lengths at any given scene. For most of the day, I was using the 70-200mm lens (hardly a ‘little’ lens) while Marianne stayed wide with the 24-70mm. The ‘feel’ of any given scene can be presented differently and this is the luxury we have of two photographers at our wedding shoots. These were all new locations as we had not photographed a wedding location shoot on the actual streets of Adelaide before. Two weeks prior, we had arranged another meeting to walk through the locations in the limited time we would have between the ceremony and reception.

Other things we tried:

Using a sunstar at weddings!

A cake’s point of view

Exposure blending

ND filters for longer exposures

Making use of the environment

All in all, we had a great time photographing the wedding and congratulations once again to Skye & Brad. Thank you for letting us record your special day and we hope the memories we captured will last you for a life time of happiness 🙂

One of many happy moments
