Yesterdays wedding.........

02nd October 2011
.......was, as always, a pleasure. I was at Longhirst Hall near Morpeth, first time for me at that lovely venue, to capture the ceremony Denise and Keith shared with their family and close friends. For the photographer the ceremony is certainly the most demanding and intense part of any wedding commission but it's not the start, I'd already visited Longhirst to familiarise myself with the venue and gather a few ideas. It's certainly not the end either, I embarked on the next part of the task at 05:30 this morning as I downloaded my images onto the computer to begin the task of editing. They're now imported to Lightroom 3 for the bulk of the processing work as I check and adjust colour balance and exposure, applying a few subtle effects as I go. Most of my images are exported straight to a dedicated folder as finished JPEG's, a few will have a little extra retouching. Then the final selection is uploaded to a client page, password protected, so the Bride and Groom can view before sharing with family and friends as they wish. My next task is designing the album which is only ordered after the couple have approved my design and suggested any changes they may like.
When all that is done I select a few images, blog the wedding in more detail and add my favourites to my portfolio. In the meantime here's something taken during the quieter moments before the ceremony begins.
