Rebecca and Steve are both serving Royal Navy Senior Rates and it has been my absolutely pleasure to capture such a wonderful wedding day. The dress, the uniforms and the beautiful setting at The Walled Garden at Beeston Fields Golf Club.
I’d like to say thank you to all our serving armed forces personnel and the veterans before them and lest we forget the absent and fallen. Thank you to you all, you certainly made me proud of you.
The venue was stunning in the Walled Garden at Beeston Fields Golf Club. The lupins were in full bloom and the sun was shining throughout the day. The colour in the garden was amazing and this truly made for some wonderful photos with such beautiful backdrops.
I always shoot Nikon. Is it better than competitors? I’ve no idea, I’ve only shot with Nikon, I presume it’s each to their own preferences and choices.
I have several camera bodies, lately my turn to lens for venue such as Goosedale is my Tamron 150-600mm. Yes, it’s a huge lens but I’ve found really useful to getting the detail I need such as the exchanging of rings and aspects such as the Groom’s tears; Daniel you know it’s true, the camera never lies!
My other lens is my Nikon 15-50mm. It’s not the kit lens, but for me it’s a great around lens that adapts nicely to demands of wedding ceremonies in being a relatively short focal length with an elements of zoom.
Flashes are body mounted during the ceremony and breakfast parts of the day. I tend to go off camera flash for the group shots depending on the weather and light but I always try an incorporate off camera flash for the intimate couple shots.
