The previous post (above) would have been too large if we had included all the candid reception photography in the same post, so we’ve split the highlights from Jenny & Caspar’s wedding into these 2 posts.
The first post, was the story of their wedding day from start to finish in highlight form, ie, the 150 pictures shown are less than 25% of what they have received themselves.
This post though is dedicated purely to a single part of their day, – the drinks reception and limited to people and the B&W versions of those images.
There used to be…and maybe still is, a misconception that wedding photographers took/take endless staged group shots.
Well this one does not and never has done as out of a typical 1 hour 45 minute drinks reception, we spend maybe 10 minutes capturing 1/2 a dozen or so ‘staged’ family pictures followed by a short session with the B&G alone. The rest of the time, candid capture of the B&G, family, guests completely fly on the wall other than the occasional request we are always happy to oblige.
So below, we have featured around 1/3rd of the results from this side of the wedding day. These were all shot in colour and presented to the client in both colour and as a second set of B&W images. The use of B&W in this situation strips out all non-essential ‘clutter’ focusing instead on who and the moment.
