As restrictions start to ease and the sun is shining upon us, I thought I'd take a moment to reflect on some of the small weddings I have undertaken in the past year and look at a few tips for making the most of a small wedding that falls within current Covid rules.
As a wedding photographer my job often starts long before the wedding day as I get to know you and and any particular wishes for your wedding day, including timings for the day, any special arrangements and particular wishes. However, a pre-wedding shoot is also an excellent idea.
From 15th July people have been allowed to have weddings with up to 30 guests, but what are the new rules and how straight forward are they? As a photographer I'm happy to inform you that I have attended three weddings post lockdown so far, all home weddings and within the Government guidelines. Here's a quick run down of what you can and cannot do.
Being a good photographer is more than just skill in being able to use a camera or owning the latest and most expensive photography equipment. Wedding photography especially requires much more to ensure that you can capture the beauty, magic and essence of the perfect day.
So, if you are looking for the perfect wedding photographer for your wedding in Leeds, here are 5 qualities that you should definitely look for.
It's nearly time for me to have a well-earned rest with the family, Christmas now being less than a week away. I've been busy editing this week and love the finished results of my work.
There are many advantages to getting married in the winter season, however, winter wedding photography does bring its own challenges as there is less day light and guests are often reluctant to step outside and certainly don't want to be hanging around for very long. For this reason, I always carry good lighting equipment and a professional grade camera perfectly set up for winter low lighting conditions.
Today I made the most of the glorious sunshine and took my camera out to Roundhay park, the best city park in Leeds and perfect for macro photography. Using a specialist macro lense I was able to capture some amazing images of the wildlife in and around the park.
I will shortly be working on a new website for this type of photography and offering prints of the best that Yorkshire has to offer. Roundhay Park is definitely a favourite of mine.
I'm really excited today because my new website, www.reshrall.co.uk is now live. With new, improved galleries I am pleased to showcase my wedding portfolio and demonstrate the amazing array of wedding locations that I have been privelled enough to shoot throughout Leeds and Yorkshire.
