Autumn weddings can be great to photograph, the light sits just right at mid afternoon, and I was glad that Tanya and Steve’s was one of them. Haldon Belvedere is a special place to get married, oddly it was my first wedding there, but I’m really hoping not the last. It kept on giving for pictures, inside the building, on the grounds outside, and even on the roof, you can’t say that often.
Tanya didn’t have any bridal preparation pictures taken before, as when the couple booked me I had a wedding package offering just turning up at the venue, which suited them more, but now I like to offer bride and groom getting ready shots, so this is one of the last times I just rock up to the place before hand, but it was a fantastic one to go out on. I couldn’t ask for more from the venue, winding stairs, light through large windows, I actually said to Tanya at the top of the Belvedere “I could photograph you all day”, I doubt she would have wanted that mind.
My second shooter Zac Gibson was there to help out on the day again. I’ve got a couple of good second photographers now, and won’t be shooting a wedding again on my own anytime soon, two snappers just brings a great dimension and a different perspective on the day, I try and be everywhere at the same time, and Zac helped me achieve this.
To photograph at Haldon Belevedere for the first time was awesome, but I’m addicted now, and want more, it’s just one of them places.
