... never rush the fun and sincere moments for the set-ups.

There's a lot to shoot at a wedding and so little time, moreover it's a real time event without pause, without art direction or stylists. As a result there's a lot going on in the photographer's head, many decisions to make - technical, logistical and creative. You have to get great shots and keep it flowing, compose and shoot within a instant. So I watch (the people and the light), see moments, connections and emotion and shoot that, I stay back or get right in, I want to show the fun, the love, and the care that people have for each other. It's hard work, but fulfilling. To cope with this and more I've devised some general 'rules' (if I can use such a word) and this is one of them: 'never rush the fun and sincere moments for the set-ups!' Let them unfold and get the shots. Here's a few 'moments' that moved me from Keely and Wade's January wedding in Gippsland. There will be more to show soon.
