The best documentary wedding photography of 2015

The best documentary wedding photography of 2015

 Every year wedding photographers everywhere put down their cameras and pull up their socks to create a list of the best wedding photography they produced that year. This is my first time attempting such a feat and I can see why so many of my friends wail and huff and puff about it. There were loads of weddings where I could have included an infinite number of dancing shots and crying shots, but seeing as I couldn't include 50% of every blog post, it meant that I had to take the stand that awesome moments are the norm, and instead what I want to bring to this blog post are the shots that meant a heck of a lot to me, the ones that I was super chuffed that I took, the ones where I instantly wanted to show the nearest person, the ones that say I was proud to have been there and shot for those people. They are not be any means a reflection of favourite weddings or couples, but individual frames that do nothing more than delight me to share with you.

    Love these, Marianne… particularly the night-time street shot and the one of the bride walking down the aisle through the groom’s legs. Awesome work, looks like you had a fantastic year! Nix

    Ridiculously cool! You have such a eye for cool angles, like the one under the bed, or the one of the tennis net from the side. Bloody impressive! xx

    If I may ask – how did you diffuse the light from flash for those indoor party shots? Cool photos 😉
