Wedding of Tass and Greg
Saturday 23 July 2016, the sky was blue and the sun was scorching!
The wedding of Tass and Greg could have gone two ways this summer. Being one of the wettest British summers in recent years, I was not hopeful when I learned that this wedding was going to be entirely outdoors. I need not have worried.
Littlefield Manor, just outside Guildford in Surrey was a delightful location, surrounded by farmland, tall oaks and peaceful isolation. A perfect place to hold a perfect celebration. Usually wedding photographers have to battle in low light; in churches or in rooms lined with dark oak panels that were never designed for cameras. This was not the problem today, In fact if I did have any problems, it was too much light.
Photographing people under a bright sun can produce nasty harsh shadows which have to do battle with incredibly bright, white, hot-spots. Get it wrong and half of peoples’ faces are in shade and half sun. It doesn’t make for attractive photographs. I was constantly battling to get people with the sun behind them. This way they didn’t have to squint with the sun in their eyes, and I didn’t have to battle with the extremes of light and shade.
In the end it was a good day, very successful in terms of photos and especially so in terms of an amazing hog roast!!

I rarely use DSLR cameras at weddings, preferring, smaller, lighter and silent mirrorless cameras made by Fuji. They are more unobtrusive and for my part, more successful at helping me to get great candid shots.
Cameras used: Fuji XT-1 and Fuji XPro2.
Lenses include, 10-22mm f/4, 23mm f/1.4, 35mm f/1.4, 56mm f/1.2 and 90mm f/2.
