Wedded Bliss


For all you wedding photographers!

You would have had a heyday following around the photographer I "happened upon" while in Sydney Harbour our last day in Australia. 
He just happened to have my same camera and lens, so he stopped to talk to me about it between shots.  How fun!

love this Ginnie smile
i can see they're well on their way towards "togetherness" smilesmile
Ginnie Hart: It was a fun photo shoot, Deji. They were doing everything the photographer asked them to do, so that sounds like togetherness. smile

You should have sold this to him or at least traded for some of his secrets ! Great wedding candid.
Ginnie Hart: I did learn a secret from him, Johnny: he was using a top flash (added to the camera) because it was starting to get dark. That's something I don't yet have for my camera.

The most unusual wedding picture I've seen in quite a while, Ginnie. Lucky you to "happened upon". smile
Ginnie Hart: I happened to be in the right place at the right time, Viktor! I felt very lucky indeed! Thanks.
Very nice, Ginnie. bet they'd love a nice candid like this one.
Ginnie Hart: I'm quite sure they're getting something similar from their photographer, Mary. Actually, come to think of it, maybe not! I don't think he was shooting them as they came away from their pose. smile

This is a very fine wedding candid shot, Ginnie...I really like the informality of it.
I wonder if the pro got any as good as this?

[Funny thing...I attended an up-country traditional wedding last weekend, and am in the process of creating an eBook about it...you have prompted me to put a couple of shots on SC...the official photographer seemed a little frightened of me, and kept following me around and trying to take the same pictures I was shooting...grin]
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure the pro got many quite a bit better than this, Ray, but thank you kindly. I know I'll have great fun looking at your e-book, so please do post some shots on SC!

It looks like something pretty drastic is going on with that water, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Drastic water? Maybe it's an omen? But actually, if an omen, I think it looks pretty calm. Thanks, Larry.

Geweldige foto, I think this is a great candid, love the colours of the bouquet of flowers, I would not have minded a wending on the beach....BTW I hope they realise that a marriage can be full of uneven rocky paths....but I am sure they will work things out...at least if they love each other with hart en ziel.......wink
Ginnie Hart: A wedding on the beach (like Amy will have in Hawaii soon!) does sound idyllic, Astrid! (sigh) Marriage IS full of uneven rocky paths because that's part of life. But you are so right...met hart en ziel, anything can be worked out when both work together for the same goals. Ontzettend bedankt.

Wonderful capture and the processing is superb. I'll bet they'd love this photo! I'll bet the wedding photographer would be irritated...lol
Ginnie Hart: LOL! Well, neither will ever know, so I guess we're all safe. smile Thanks for your vote of confidence, though!
Lovely shot Ginnie. Really like your subtle toning too.
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Bridge. Thank you.

Not your normal wedding shot Ginnie. Nice one!
Ginnie Hart: There was nothing normal about this, Ron. That's why I was having so much fun following him around. And he actually seemed tickled to have me there. That's what was so fun about it. I don't think I ever once threatened him.
Superb candid shot Ginnie. I like the subtle tones here!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Richard. I sure had a lot of fun.

Hope there marriage doesn't end up, all washed up or on the rockstonguetongue
He is falling for her for sure, hope he didn't bit his tongue in the processsmile
Great capture Ginniesmile
Ginnie Hart: You are so funny, Tracy. You always give me a great smile. grin Thanks, mijn vriend.
Great candid! I'm doing a friend's wedding in August, but they won't be anywhere near the sea!!
Ginnie Hart: This was a first for me, Bill. I was totally mesmerized! Good luck with yours in August.

This is a great candid shot Ginnie. What an unusual place for a wedding photograph - I'm sure she must have been worried about getting her dress wet or tripping over the hem!
Ingrid
Ginnie Hart: She WAS worried about getting her dress wet, Ingrid. But she was game nonetheless, which was part of the fun. smile Thanks.
That marriage looks like it's on rocky groundgrin
Ginnie Hart: I know, Nigel! But I'm guessing we'll never know for sure. Looks may be deceiving.

An original wedding photo indeed! I hope that it will be a happy and exciting marriage, but not too stormy and rocky! Nice how the man is helping his wife!(we have in German the phrase 'in den (ruhigen) Hafen der Ehe einlaufen/ to call at the port of the marriage)
Ginnie Hart: Awwwww. What a great connection to this image, Philine! I like that.

Great candid shot Ginnie. Love the desaturated colours.

Nice wedding shot. I like the smooth colors.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Cako. I think of weddings as timeless events. smile
Looks like she's changed her mind Ginnie wink Well captured.
Ginnie Hart: At least about staying at the water's edge! Thanks, Chris.

Lol, she's not trying to get away already is she?! A really great shot Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Ine just never knows about these things, Jose-Ann. grin Thanks.
Really a very cool picture! and a good story
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, MPW, for stopping by and commenting!
Sometimes the informal wedding shots are better than the posed ones Ginnie and this is one of those. I hope they live happily ever after.
Ginnie Hart: Awwww. That's such a sweet thing to say, Brian. Thank you kindly.

Realy like the colours in this one...and you have caught the coupple in a fine situation smile
Ginnie Hart: It was a fun few minutes of snapping away, Aksel. Thank you.
Is this the run away bride? smile
I like the colors Ginnie.
This is the kind of wedding photo i would like to have of me and the mrs smile
Ginnie Hart: Runaway bride! I like that, Magnus. And thanks for the compliment!
They look a bit scared! Did a huge wave come their way?
Ginnie Hart: Good question, Wim. I don't recall any waves at all, but I DO recall seeing the photographer move them from one place to another. smile

A beautiful shot, everything about it is spot on. I pray they have a happy married life together smile
Ginnie Hart: Totally agreed, Fotografa. Thanks for backtracking!
a different wedding foto and very creative. I liked this foto because of not having the eyes from this couple that saw to the side of the lens. As well as was seen natural. I love it.
Regards from Yogyakarta Indonesia.
Ginnie Hart: You know how to make my day, Bram. Thank you.
