Jess & Ryan

I’ll share more from Jess & Ryan’s wedding at a later date, but in the meantime here’s a snap from the short journey between their marriage ceremony at St Kilda Botanical Gardens and their reception at The Willows on St Kilda Road.

It was rather fortuitous timing that we should pull up at the lights at the same time as them. Even Ryan enjoyed posing for the camera – maybe it was because he knew I only had a five second window in which to take it!

The Dress

Often, brides request a shot of their dress before they start wearing it. I guess it’s never going to look as clean ever again, so it’s a good idea to take a couple of snaps while it’s still pristine.

As well as the ‘obvious’ shot of the dress hanging up somewhere, I also try to look for another setting for it, whether it’s outside, being admired by someone or in transit like the shot below. I think the dress ‘in action’ in a scene is far more interesting than being inanimate on a coat hanger.
