It seems like a picture postcard, a wonderful winter wedding, the reality, however, can be a bit different. A wedding photographer based in Somerset, and one snowy afternoon in a city covered in ice and snow, I’m waiting for the bride to arrive at the venue. Traditionally she is late, but in this case a good 50 minutes late. To get some more detail about Winter wedding photography you can visit https://martindabek.com/.
I’m barely able to feel my fingers, but having no clue when she could suddenly arrive I’m waiting eagerly, eyes fixed on the road ahead for any sign of a wedding car. The weather in somerset is typically always a bit gloomy, so I’ve got my flash fixed to my camera in case I need an extra blast of light to fill in the shadows.
I’ve been a wedding photographers somerset for 10 years and never felt cold like this before. Eventually, I can hear an engine, and the wedding car appears in the distance, you can tell it’s having some trouble with the ice, as its erratic engine noise echoes around the buildings, maybe that or the driver is drunk I’m thinking.
As the car pulls up the light takes a dive and I realize I need to use my flash. so I switch it on and ask the driver to roll down the brides window and compose to take my first shot. Boom ! an unfamiliar noise comes from my flashgun, with the unforgiving smell of burning electronics.
