Our ‘Photo Of The Day‘ is a carefully selected image to help inspire you for your big day. Whether you’re a couple getting married or a wedding photographer shooting your next wedding, we want to show you great wedding photographers that think outside the box. Each image we share has a lovely story behind it, whether it’s the technical details behind each shot or how the photographer arrived at the creative decision to capture it in all it’s glory. Here at WPS & the Select Bride we’re passionate about great images, great wedding photographers and inspiring you at every turn.
We had 2 hours for the photo-session. At the end of the session I realised we had some lovely images, but I wanted to get something different and something dramatic. I said to the couple that we need to get a little crazy to finish everything off.
All I needed was a good place to lay down and then I positioned the couple in front of me. I instructed him to jump like that but the hands were all his idea 🙂 I didn’t have to say anything to the bride as I knew her reaction would be genuine, just react as he does some silly jumping.
Using my Canon 5D MKII and a 35mm 1.4 lens, I focused the camera on her and shot about 25 to 30 frames to get the image that I was happy with. I wanted a B&W image and that’s all I did in my post work.
I’ve won an ISPWP & WPS Excellence Award for this image, so I am very pleased and it’s hopefully the favourite shot for the couple too.
