A Marriage Prayer

Suby In The House

See  policyofsubster

Another wedding shot, now this shot I am very proud of. Shot with ISO1600 and my lofty Canon 20D was still trying to show Jide's Canon 5D it could still mix with the best (although I probably think Jide's version will come out better than mine :(  )

Anyway I digress, Jide and I must have looked a sight to all those who came to see this lovely couple get married as we where literally thowing ourselves on the floor, hanging in the air, jumping up and down chairs, tables and whatever we could find (I actually thought of utilizing the piano but don't think it was meant to take my 1 ton body LOL) just to get some lovely classic shots. Take this image, there I am in front of the couple literally on my back in order to get this shot with the lovely backdrop. The congregation must have thought I had lost it, but who cares, the ends result is what counts. I am really really pround of this shot.

I think this shot is following on from my "Advert Typey" themed images I seem to have pleasantly falling into in my last few edits.

The Alakija Man who is looking for inspiration, look no further, it was wonderful doing this shoot with you, it was lots of fun (but hard work) we definitely should do something again soon, we definitely see things in similar but different ways which makes it ever so exciting, tt really was a joy shooting with you.

All that hopping around was worth it, excellent capture! I was talking to someone earlier about wedding shoots and I have to say, its a lot tougher than it looks. Capturing the moment is crucial and you've done it in this shot and even in the previous one.

Kudos smile
Suby & Sinem: It is tough, but I love it, I just loose myself in the moment when I am shooting weddings.

Suby
Nice.....It was fun, I was aching all over the following day and guess what, I had to walk with the Paraiso lot during the carnival too. So the pain was aggrevated!!! When next you need some assistance just give me a bell I'll help out.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks bro, we defintely should arrange something soon :d

very nice shot. now if only the bride has been considerate enough to have been a fraction to the left to have the sun filtering through her veil wink
Suby & Sinem: Nev that cracked me up, I burst out in loud laughter when I read your comment. If only LOL.

Suby
Lovely shot!
Lovely moment!
My camera will not give result as this best when using ISO 1600. grin
Suby & Sinem: I was really surprised at almost how well the camera handled it, but wait till the Subster buys that dreamy Mark II, then see what I will churn out tongue

Suby
Nice angle at which it was taken. nice results even at iso1600. I like the way you included the blue ceiling in the scene. kudos smile
Suby & Sinem: Thanks, thats the reason I had to go on the floor, only way to get the ceiling into the shot as well.

This is quite lovely.

Just do be careful throwing yourself around the church when you take shots during the ceremony, you don't want to disrupt the ceremony by breaking your leg or anything like that, also be careful not to distract from the solemnity of the moment.

Sometimes photographers are told that they cannot take photos during the ceremony or only non-flash from discrete distances, and "ceremony" shots are then staged after the actual ceremony.

This was the case at our wedding. The photographers were allowed to shoot (without flash) the processional in from the front of the church but all the ceremony shots had to be done from the rear of the church so as not to disrupt the guests and the service. This was the churches rule, not ours, but I could certainly understand why. After the ceremony we did "posed" shots of the ceremony where they were able to use their strobes.

Often there are no photos allowed in a Temple at all. I was not allowed to take any photos before, during, or after the ceremony at all inside the temple for a Bat Mitzvah I did a coulple of months ago.
Suby & Sinem: I have to say this was the 1st wedding I had done where they did not mind the use of flash in the churh and I have to say thank you to the Lord for that. We would have missed some really lovely shots like this if we could not use the flash. The posed shots are okay, too traditional for me though, what I love to capture are those once in a lifetime moments, gestures and looks. Eeeemmm, maybe I should post one of those looks and moments from this wedding another day.

Suby
Weddings are touvh, but can be so rewarding! This shot proves it! I'm sure they will absolutely love it!!
Suby & Sinem: I really hope they do. Thanks bro.

Very sweet picture! Nice angle and great view.
Again, if I was not yet married I would ask you to be my wedding photographer. But maybe you are interested to come for my funeral. I am sure you will put some fun in this event ! ;-)
Suby & Sinem: Every event is an event to be captured for the memories they capture. Eeeck funeral, hope you not planning on checking out soon? smile

Hi Suby, I have some really funny images in my head of you and Jide hanging off the rafters grabbing the shots. Lovely intimate moment captured on a special day. Lovely shot
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Mal, glad you like.

Suby, I love your passion and how you throw yourself (quite literally) into your photography! Again, your wedding images are so original and unique...they are awesome. This shot is killer!
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Micki, really makes me smile reading that.

A bit assymetrical.. nonetheless, An excellent angled shot... there is only so much you can do on your back.
Suby & Sinem: I know what you mean, but this one of those times when the phootographer makes a choice;
1.Make the shot symmetrical and loose some of the elements of the shot (i.e would not have had the brides father on the left in the shot)
2.Throw maths and physics to the wind and capture this memorable scene for the couple.
Guess which one I went for. grin

O.K SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH MY COMPUTER OR SHUTTERCHANCE? i WILL WAIT FOR YOUR RESPONSE
As my old Grandpappy Charlo used to tell me...

"Don't let other people's thoughts about your sanity stand in the way of your creative vision."

Actually I think the way he phrased it was "If the Devil's in yer pants make cheese with him" but then again Pappi Charlo was always a bit strange.

Anyway - well done Suby - I like the angle and expressions. If I had anything critical to say, I might crop out a bit off the top up until the dome starts which would give you a nice 8x10 print for the couple.

Weddings are hard work! I've only done one professionally and I'm not eager to do it again.
Suby & Sinem: I like Pappi Charlo, I agree with you about the crop, actually thought of it but for whatever reason decided to leave it this way smile

Thanks for the comments bro.

A very tired Suby
Your story about getting this shot proves how physically demanding photography can be. I'm sure the happy couple will appreciate your efforts.
Suby & Sinem: I really hope they do, just come back from a shoot. ( hours at work, then home to pick up the equipement then out to shoot a festival and now at 21:00hrs still in front of the PC blogging on this screen, uploadsing and editing images on other screen, jeez, me heading for a breakdown me thinks smile Photography sure ain't easy bro. grin

Nice work; back a fraction and slightly lower angle on the camera perhaps - difficult to say when you dont know what's behind the photographer. Lovely capture though smile
Suby & Sinem: Any lower than this and my head would probably have been inbedded in the floor, any further back, would probably have been a step to far for those sat in front smile I get your idea though smile

Framing is amazing...and colour is pretty cool too....8.25/10
Suby & Sinem: Wonder what it takes to get this elusive 9 or 10 from Samarth smile
