Penshurst Place Wedding Photographer Kent
I thought I’d share with you some images from a lovely wedding at Penshurst Place in Kent from earlier in the year. As this is a quieter time of year I can elaborate a little on the thought process in capturing this images. Based on a recent enquiry from a perspective client who said he didn’t know what he was looking for in a photographer and that he was visually illiterate. The challenge is on, education here go one on one. As you go through this selection of images I will right a brief note about some of the images to give you a greater understanding of it’s context, the rest I will leave to your own judgement.
Some of this is documentary wedding photography and some is mildly creative wedding photography in an effort of getting the best from a wedding venue and to get the best possible images for the couple. Something striking, something to hang on the wall and admire for years to come. Now here’s the caveat, its takes a little bit of effort on my part and it takes a little bit of time on the couples part, usually we are talking minutes here for something you spent thousands of pounds/euros/dollars on.
Well wouldn’t it be easier just to document the day on the fly and make less effort in trying to be creative, well yes. But personally I think that is a disservice to you and your wedding.
I love wedding dresses, they cost a small fortune, so worth a picture or two, the few images below are as it happened documentary photography, but maybe not as you’ve know documentary wedding photography as some are in colour. And this Bride had beautiful skin tones, waste not the colour.
The solution is to have a lighting consultation with your venue just to get the look you want to your images. I can’t think of anything worse than laser dots on the Brides face during the first dance.
There you have it, I hope you enjoyed the experience and that your a little wiser for it. If you like what you see and your getting married at Penshurst Place or anywhere else. Please get in touch
