I thought as much, knowing your preferences, but then I looked at the Gelateria shot and wondered if you'd had a Speedlight hidden in that bush... ;)

No, definitely not. It's pretty rammed in Sorrento so you'd do well to position one anyway!

Another shot from the quite stressful and lesser seen Mr & Mrs Clutton's wedding reception.

A friend of mine posted on facebook that his blog was doing pretty well in some top 100 wedding blogs thing - so I took a look. A quick stroll down the page and another familair name jumped out at me...

Tell you what's exciting at a wedding...to be told that there's no interest in formal group shots, despite me asking and them being in a LOVELY setting for them.
And for them to change their mind at 7pm!

The bride's my best mate so I let her get away with it, but boy did I boss them around loudly - "No peeing around, get in line, we're running out of light - it's basically night here!!"

I'm AMAZED at the OM-D, which actually performed better than the 7D and I've got perfectly usable shots even though by the end the sun was below the horizon and I was working by it's reflection off the clouds.

Can't post examples at the moment - the couple haven't seen them yet and it wouldn't be fair!

I did a years review to put up some of my favourite images. Ive been using a lot more flash this year after doing some courses, mcgillicuddy's being the best one

There's about 250 images so don't click if you're on a slow connection!

Cracking set Guy and loads considering you only showed 3 per wedding! You must have your workflow locked down to a treat by now :)

Radiohead wrote:Very moody! How many did you shoot this year in all?

Thanks :) They werent all moody though, depended on the weather but that was a stormy snowdonia one.

We did 8 in total with a big gap in june-july so I could have fitted more in. I was trying to keep below 10 being part time but they were all good paying Album bookings so I was quite happy with them :) I also did a few backups for some local full time photographers and at the moment were doing about the same this year.

You enjoying it?

I hope the photographer at mine and fbatgirl's upcoming nuptials is half as good as you... Sadly I don't think this will be the case lol!

Love this look, getting very popular. So hard to get right though and you've nailed it.

See my earlier comments in this thread...

When these guys started posting, I eventually changed my wedding photographer...

My goal is to be half as good as these guys...

Had a pretty good 2012 with 11 weddings, but with tiny number 2 due in Feb, I've decided to drop out of Wedding photography for a few years. The only booking I had for this year, booked in 2011, has now postponed until 2014, so I'm on the clear :)

Still keeping up the portrait and portfolio stuff though

We simply cannot afford anyone of this calibre. We weren't going to have anyone at all, but the fact that it's someone new to weddings who is building their portfolio means for next to no money we've got someone taking pics, and we get a copy of them all on cd...
