I hated this wedding…
No seriously…hated it. I mean, great light, great couple, great guests, great weather, great location…how the hell does it get any better. I’ve seen utopia and damnit, I want it back!
Joking aside yesterday, yes…a Thursday, was just wonderful. Wedding photographers love weekday weddings…and even more so when you get [….] (see the long list of ‘greats’ above). As an added ‘bonus’ Chrissy and Arnon have asked if I could prepare a few more images to display at their Israeli wedding which takes place next weekend. As a result I picked out a bit more than usual and found it hard to cull back to the usual 30ish. I’ll also post a Facebook gallery to see more. I’m really excited about the images…there is SO much more to come as well!
It’s a little game I like to call ‘Ask Rafael’
This is a total cockup (is that a naughty word)? Meaning I’ve got a button near my ‘next’ button that sometimes I accidentally hit. It runs part of an action (Photoshop speak), executes the ‘next’ and then restarts somewhere in the middle. The net effect was this…and boy did I like it! Happy accident.
Chrissy, a loyal blog follower, challenged me to do something interesting with flat shoes. I reckon this will suffice.
“I gotta be me!”
Not a setup shot actually…
Oh yes…in literature we call this ‘foreshadowing’
Arnon was organising all day
Last minute dash to put some holly on the Chuppah…
..giving time for Chrissy to get a little anxious….
…but ultimately decide to enter (at least to the beginning of the aisle) with her heart-shaped glasses (foreshadowing complete)
Yep…very little during the ceremony. It would appear Rabbis and Vicars have more in common than they think
LIGHT…it does a body good
Arnon’s favourite part of the day
No OCF…just great light
He said he wanted a ‘Lord of the Manor’ shot. I wasn’t expecting Lord Flashheart (do your own Blackadder research)
Chrissy made all the table decorations and wrote a note to each guest
Arnon avoids a speech and opts for a song…
Recreating a scene from Shawshank Redemption? No, releasing a candle lantern
The video man (Steve…top bloke) and video light. Ta very much!
Make that Ta to the power of 2
Unfortunately we couldn’t do the latern launch about an hour earlier (the one of the B&G was a special one done…well…about an hour earlier) to get more blue in the sky…but it was still pretty cool.
This image CANNOT be explained
