Why I love this picture - Will & Rebecca McLean, Dover Castle Church Wedding

Published 03 Jan 2016 at 18:35

Becca and Will had the honour of being granted permission to marry at St Mary in Castro church in the grounds of Dover Castle due to her families connection with the castle.

The vicar had very strict rules about photography during the ceremony so we snuck back in once their guests had left for the Old Kent Barn wedding reception. Taking full advantage of the amazing backdrop I took many beautiful images, however this photograph presented itself just as we were leaving.

I love this picture because of how the light captures Becca’s bone structure and detail on her dress against the backdrop of the dark church. It was a sweet intimate moment and one of my favourites from their album.

Light to a photographer is like paint to an artist, it’s what we think about every time we click the shutter. We use light to create silhouettes, sunbeams through kisses, flawless complexions and the earth’s gentle glow for starlit skies.

A good wedding photographer technically knows how to deal with all the light variations that happen throughout your day. This is just one of the skills you pay for when you invest in a professional photographer. Aside from the dress and a few keepsakes your wedding album is the one thing you will have for generations to come it therefore pays to invest wisely.
