A group shot taken on Gavin & Helen's wedding day in Scotland.
Alison, Helen's sister, was one of the bridesmaids. I was asked to take photos for the whole week. Loved it. First wedding I have ever shot. Gavin & Helen had confidence in me having seen my photos on Flickr and basically gave me free reign to shoot away.
Most of the shots were candid, the kind of photos I like to take. After a while people forgot I was in their face with a camera, I think. This is what you hope for when snapping candid shots. I got some good ones.
This shot was new for me. I had never had to coordinate a group shot like this before. Obviously I snapped several shots trying different aperture settings & hoping to get one where everyone had their eyes open. I found f1.4 too tight a depth of field to get everyone's face in focus. This is shot at f3.5.
It was a superb week & a great experience for me to be able to document the whole thing for Gavin & Helen. Good times.
