my wedding favorites 2012 - part 1

Over the next couple of months I'm going to show a selection of my favourite wedding photos from the past 12 months and also try to explain why I like them. Here's the first installment.

I find that speeches are best photographed when looking for reaction and I love
this shot because it connects father, son and mum.

This shot is from a very 'foodie' wedding, in fact
the food was listed as an essential detail
to photograph. I like its editorial look.
(shot at Brighton Sea Baths, Melbourne).


Capturing moments between people is what I love about
wedding photography. This is the bride's mother with her
grandchild/flower girl walking into the church, I get a
little teary looking at it still.

The kiss can be a hit or miss moment - not always as 'Hollywood'
as we would like and celebrants often get stuck in odd positions.
In this one I love the kiss, the hand holding and the celebrant.

Sleeping angels at wedding receptions have become
a cliche, but still overwhelmingly beautiful. I love the
yellow, the face, hair, light and the buttons.
