Getting Married :: Andrea Sarlo Wedding Photography

What better way to talk about photography, than to show some photographs! All too often, we try to use too many words when a single striking image will do just the trick. I want to share with you some of my recent work and explain how to go about capturing that special moment…

Group dynamics

Group shots pose a particular problem, since they involve many people and a photographer needs to observe and capture the real feeling between the group. It is always important for me to get to know the couple and their families, along with their tastes. This image of a bride sharing a few words with her bridesmaids, just before her wedding ceremony encapsulates the wonderful rapport between the four women.

Can you tell the shot was completely staged? In fact they were very comfortable in front of the camera, always a help for any photographer

Boys will be boys

Let’s not forget about the men on the wedding day…! They too will be looking great, not least if there is a special theme or dress code on the day. In this recent photograph, the groom hired the “A team” van to drive them all to the ceremony, and the boys had a great time. Of course, on the way to the church the van had to make a stop—in the pub! Great fun, I’m sure you will agree.

What about the good old British weather?

With a good professional photographer, all will not be lost. Andrea is very used to dealing with a variety of weather situations. After twenty five years working on weddings throughout the UK and abroad, she has seen almost everything.When rain strikes, groups can usually be photographed indoors, but there is often a chance to take the couple outside with an umbrella, even if it isn’t exactly a walk on the beach. This photograph was taken at Amberley Castle and it became one of the couple’s favourites.

Simply beautiful

Not all images have to be quirky. Sometimes it’s just wonderful to capture the natural beauty of a bride, just like in this photograph.Yes, she is looking at the camera, but she is also looking at anyone who engages with the image, so you can also share that special moment with her.

This image was recently selected for the front cover of a popular wedding magazine.

Here comes the sun

When you have great weather and a group of enthusiastic ushers and bridesmaids, why would you not try something different? For this photograph It helped that I had done the groom’s brother’s wedding two years earlier, and had done an engagement shoot for the bride and groom prior to the wedding. So, when I suggested going into the fields as a backdrop for pictures, they all greeted the idea enthusiastically.

 

Whoops…

As a trained photographer with more than twenty-five years of experience, Andrea is always ready to capture that split-second when something doesn’t go quite to plan. I was in the middle of setting up a photograph when the chair in the photograph just gave way.   This really happened, and thankfully the happy bride found it quite amusing, as the photograph shows.

We did get round to doing a proper portrait, but in the end the bride fell in love with this spur-of-the-moment shot.

At the end of the day

As the day draws to a close, you can rest assured that you will have some fantastic images to remember you day. This special photograph was taken at Pains Hill Park next to the stunning ruins, and it really captures the sense of beauty and uniqueness every wedding strives for.

You too can have beautiful stunning shots on your wedding day. Please contact Andrea Sarlo to see what we can do for you.
