Sean and Amy got married at Brighton Bandstand which is a great summer venue for weddings as long as the weather is good, and luckily they had a beautiful late summers day for their ceremony. The wedding ceremony was performed by the registrars from Brighton town hall, and were up to their usual high standards they were friendly and  relaxed and really made the day feel special. Sean and Amy wanted quite informal photographs at the ceremony along with the normal family groups and with a bit of judicious photoshopping I was able to create a bit of clear beach for photo if the two of them in front of Brighton’s iconic but decaying West Pier. After group shots were finished the wedding party moved on to the reception at Fabrica Art Gallery where I set up a photo-booth for the wedding guests to pose with some wild and wacky props. I split my time between the booth and taking candid portraits of the guests as well as the speeches, details of the cake and the general decor, so needless to say I was kept very busy and many a memory card was filled by the evening. I was very pleased by the images and enjoyed setting up and shooting the photobooth as it is not something I normally do at a wedding. It’s nice to break things up and use different skills.

A Photographer’s Guide to Hiring a Wedding Photographer #1 – Educate Yourself

A Photographer’s Guide to Hiring a Wedding Photographer #1 – Educate Yourself

Before you start looking for a specific photographer try to look at as many professional wedding images as possible (flickr is great for this). For many couples their wedding is the first time in their lives they’ve ever hired a professional photographer. I think it’s really important to try and educate yourself about contemporary wedding photography. It is no longer the preserve of the dowdy high st. snapper. The standard has moved on leaps and bounds in the past ten years, and the top wedding photographers produce images of a standard that could grace any high end magazine. Take some time, surf the web and work out what style of photos you’d like, and have a firm idea of what can be done by a good professional. Use this as a benchmark when selecting your photographer.

Gold Award for Tobias Key Photography

Now, I’m not normally one for competitions unless of course I win something in which case my viewpoint alters somewhat!  I’ve just received a Gold Award in Bridal Portraiture from the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers and would like to thank both Gisele the beautiful bride and make up artist Sophia Ann Price www.sophiapricemakeup.co.uk   It’s always a thrill to get a little recognition from your peers.

For those of you not familiar with Bridal Portrait Sessions they are separate bridal shoots photographed after the wedding, so that we can spend plenty of time getting the perfect shot without upsetting the wedding guests!  They can also be great if it rained on your wedding day or like Gisele, you didn’t have a professional phootgrapher on the day.

Bridal portrait shoots can booked at any time, they don’t have to be part of a wedding package and are an ideal opportunity to let your creative side run wild – I always work closely with clients when deciding what the theme of our shoot will be.  Prices are worked on a per shoot basis but expect to pay from £350 inclusive.  For more information email me at tobias@tobiaskey.com for an information pack.

Toby.
