And then the Groom sees his Bride, and his face lights up. Joy, relief, wonder, love.
Bedfordshire wedding photographerWedding ceremony: First Look
This moment can be really hard to catch. Sometimes the bridesmaids are still in the aisle, between me and the bride and groom. But for Stevie and Christina (at Elstow Abbey in Bedford), I got a clear view and this lovely shot of Stevie's first long look at his beautiful bride. And there's no hiding how happy he is!
1/50 sec at f/4.0, ISO 3200 - again, low light, so wide open and high ISO
Canon 5DS R with Canon EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM at 105mm - this time at full telephoto, as I am some way behind the action, trying to stay out of the limelight. In fact, I couldn't zoom in as much as I wanted, and this is a crop from the centre of the image. This is one way the 5DSR excels - with its 50Mpx images, you can crop an image down and it is still plenty large enough for canvases and the album.
