Wedding Photographer Ibiza
Everybody loves a wedding in the sun, but photographing a destination wedding can be tricky like this one from Ibiza. When you look at Jodie and Harry’s wedding gallery, all you’ll see is a glorious wedding celebration, full of fun, sunshine and laughter. What you don’t see is that it was raining all morning, leaving me to re-consider all the outdoor shots I’d planned and to work out how to get some lambent lighting that would bring warmth and colour regardless of the weather outside … but just before the ceremony started the sun came out and we were able to revert to the original plan. Being a wedding photographer Ibiza based on this occasion, requires being able to juggle seven different ideas at the same time and adjust to the circumstances in front of me, minute by minute!
This was the first Jewish wedding I’d photographed and it was wonderful to be able to photograph a combination of traditional features like the flower-twined Chuppah, held by four of Jodie and Harry’s male wedding guests, and modern elements like Jodie’s strapless, back-buttoning wedding dress and Harry’s raffish red socks!
How to capture the high spots of your wedding
One of the real pleasures of wedding photography is having the experience to capture the unforgettable, unrepeatable moments that happen at every wedding. For me, one of those moments was the second that Jodie’s father, Clive, saw his daughter in her wedding dress. Candid photography is always an important part of creating the perfect wedding album and I’m always on the look out for those perfect instants in time that encapsulate the emotion of the day.
But candid wedding photography alone is often not enough to bring a wedding to life. A great day needs a combination of lively, candid shots and carefully planned and stage-managed ones. These planned shots can tie together the various phases of the day, and also allow the bride and groom moments when they can pause and take stock of their experience so far, which is just as important for them to really enjoy their day as it is for great wedding photographs.
Then of course there’s the fun and high spirits of the evening party with glamorous dresses, drinks and dancing … all of which give extra pizazz to Jodie and Harry’s wedding shots.
Emotionally powerful wedding photographs
Jodie and Harry had some clear ideas about how they wanted their wedding photos to look, which made it easier for me to structure their couple shots to show the strength of their relationship and the humour and passion that they share. Being able to work with them to craft beautiful photographs that would have deep personal meaning for them was one of the most satisfying parts of the day.
