I recently had opportunity to take photos of a friends wedding. I have been friends of the bride and her family for quite a few years. It was a privilege and an honour to help out in this way. The day was marvelous. The ceremony was beautiful, and the weather (even though it was the middle of winter) was spectacular with beautiful blue skies and a lovely brightness. Everything about the day was brilliant. There were many shots I took that day which I think were marvelous and I may put up a couple of more in the near future, but this was by and far my most favourite shot. With the bright sunlight streaming through the windows of the front hall, it gave her a magical glow and created this lovely moody scene, almost nostalgic. I adjusted the tones and desaturated the colour to give it that wonderful sepia tone using iPhoto. I hope you enjoy it as well. Please view large to enjoy it in all it’s glory.

Primarily a landscape photographer, my enjoyment of taking photos has developed from a young age. Originally from Texas, I now live in England and am surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery. I enjoy outdoor activities such as climbing, hiking, and camping. I am blessed with a wonderful wife and three terrific children. I am a strong Christian and I believe that my love of photography and any talent I posses in capturing images comes from God.

    Absolutely stunning capture Bradley, bet she loves this.

  • She does indeed. Thank you dearly my fabulous friend What a marvelous compliment. I have loads of shots that I have taken at friends weddings. There are a few more I will be putting up sometime. I noticed that there are no groups that are specifically for weddings. Maybe that would be a good group to start?
