For the most part, I like to shoot weddings very simply, with minimum fuss and minimum kit. I shoot a 35/85mm combo and don't use flash unless really needed. I look for light, composition, and emotion, and I'm not fussed which order they come in.

I love the expression on Mikes face, and the juxtaposition with the solemn looking chap in the frame just finished it off superbly.

I'd love to say everything happened naturally for this shot, but I had to engineer it ever so slightly. I'd noticed the moody looking chap in the frame earlier and fully intended to make use out of him at some point. After the ceremony the groom, Mike, was standing close to the wall whilst his best man started to mess around at the other side of the room. I decided to very quickly ask Mike to move much closer to the painting and lean against the wall. Thankfully, his best man was still fooling around and helped produce this shot without his knowledge.

Although one of the people in the shot is actually a painting, I felt both subjects required an equal amount of space to work.

Shot with a Nikon DF with a Nikon 85mm lens at f/1.8. The room was much much darker than the image lets on. ISO 4000 at 1/320sec.

Manually metered and minimal with slight sharpening and noise reduction in post.

I love this image. Take away the grumpy dude and Mikes expression is still strong enough to carry it off and the clients loved this shot.
