A Year in Pictures
– Julie Oswin –
Week Seven of A Year in Pictures
I have photographed many incredible weddings, at home and abroad, in summer, spring, autumn, and winter. I have met some fabulous people and couples. As a photographer my job is to document the day, capture the drama, the emotion, and the love of two individuals in a stylish natural way. Does this mean that I direct couples? Yes, but towards the most beautiful light, I can find.
Mary was one of the most nervous brides I have ever photographed, the emotion levels and nerves were running at full speed, as she and her father walked up the steps to the church doorway. I didn’t want to stop and pose them; I would have lost the decisive moment, so I waited for it to happen.
Holding her hand tightly, he supported his daughter and as I was about to take the shot a little puff of wind moved the veil slightly, and the image came to life.
