I'll toast to that one!

As the season has just sorta started I thought I'd put a taster of some of last years cool shots from some weddings I was asked to photograph. I have 4 shots in the queue for this week.

This I think is a good time to explain my own approach to wedding photography or wedding photojournalism.

Quite simply I photograph weddings much the same way I would take photos for my photoblog. I get quite a few requests to documents weddings which is a good thing but not all photographers do the same thing when it comes to photographing weddings. It's important to know this because many expect the same level of quality and style.

for me it's the lighting

the unique angle, the focal length and the lovely background (strong on it's own but not enough to distract us)
also help

Jide Alakija: Lighting is always great on a mildly sunny day so it helps.
