We have received some fantastic comments on our wedding work recently which got me thinking about the work Shanine and myself produce and the style we shoot in. We work hard with every happy couple to make things happen, here a few words on what makes our style unique in Guernsey.
Creating stunning pictures by spotting opportunities is what we thrive on. This picture from Saumarez Manor is a great example, we saw the string quartet taking a break after the ceremony and asked them to come and play downstairs while the happy couple practiced their first dance. Attention to detail and making this happen contributed to one of Kesh and Jon’s favorite pictures. I’m guessing it would not have “just happened” had we just been standing on the sidelines recording only what happened naturally.
Here is a picture from a recent wedding in Sark, we went to the rose gardens and quickly found a great spot which shows the roses and the Seigneurie off perfectly, another favorite picture of Vicky and Andy. Again very unlikely this would have happened and it is a great looking natural shot.
Weddings are full of portrait opportunities, here we found a great tree with fairy lights as a backdrop and shot many of the wedding guests in a fun and relaxed way.
You want fun? No problem, we love to interact with guests and make some memorable moments to look back on.
Have a budding Hendrix in the family?
Moody and atmospheric pictures are another favorite of ours. One of our brides mentioned she booked us when they saw some of the pictures we’d taken on less than perfect days, they felt relaxed that if the weather wasn’t great we could still produce something as good as if not better than on a sunny day. Here is an engagement picture from an overcast day.
And (to be honest I’ve checked and it doesn’t often rain on Creative Photography weddings ) another from the Vale Castle on a stormy day.
Here at Vazon all the tricks in the book were used to turn a grey day into an amazing picture of the happy couple reflected in a puddle at sunset (all in camera with very little Photoshop)
being full time professionals is very important, it means we shoot still life, fashion and portraits every day which gives us the edge during a wedding where we are more than just recording the big day. Here is a great picture of a tiara taken by Shanine in the morning preparations.
Often it’s a case of finding the right light on the day, here are a couple of examples of the happy couple enjoying a quiet moment after we have found the good light on location.
Working as a male/female pairing is also a bonus, most brides prefer a woman shooting them in the pre ceremony build up, they find it more comfortable and relaxing, many have commented on how Shanine is more than a photographer such is the help and advice she gives on the morning.
We are creative, we are full time professional photographers and we have a unique style, what more could you want?
