Wedding Number 3 - Allison and Danny

My third wedding shoot for the year... Oh, you might ask what about second wedding shoot? Well, I was fortunate enough to be working as an assistance photographer for a professional wedding photographer. I still haven't received all the shots I have taken that day.

With this wedding, we took on a slightly different style. We did a more photo-journalism style shoot as the bride and groom did not plan for a specific portrait shoot location. The wedding ceremony and the reception were held at Burswood Park golf course. It was a simple and beautiful ceremony followed by some mingling in the reception area.

Here are some of the photos I took that day:

I took the opportunity to take some portrait shots of Allison while she was getting prepared.

First Wedding for this year - Fiona and Mark

My first wedding for this year has been quite an experience. I am now starting to work with a few local photographers for wedding shoots. This has given me the chance to learn many new skills from these great photographers. We call our little group "Passion Photography".

My first wedding shoot this year was conducted in March. The bride was actually a colleague of mine from my day job. She is a spirited and fun-loving lady. Shooting the wedding was such a great fun and joy. Here are some of the photos I took that day:

Hi, I'm back...

I have disappeared for quite a number of moons. My excuse is that I've been busy... ya ya, sure is. That's what everyone says right. But really, I have been.

I've just done 3 weddings and 2 portrait shoots last month. It had been days of post-processing work, creating of slide shows, burning photos into DVD, etc. Yes, it has been a rather hectic month. I am kind of glad that the wedding season is now more or less over here in Perth. I really do look forward to the few months of "rest", enjoying the cold winter days and snuggling with my family doing family stuff.

I shall attempt to write more in my blog while going back to do some post processing of my landscape photos which I took 2 months ago in Denmark, South-west of Western Australia. At the same time, it is also good to start flipping through some wedding photography books and pick up some new tricks.

Keep watching this space. I'll start posting some wedding photos that I have taken in the next few weeks. Hope you will like them. I also encourage you to leave me any feedbacks and any constructive comments.

It's great to be back!
