The Bridal Portrait

One of my favourite parts of the wedding day, once all the pressures and energy of the ceremony and the running around are over and everyone is sipping their champagne I like to take aside the bride for a few moments to catch a few classic portrait shots. I love the look of the Canon 85mm 1.2 ii lens and although its built like a tank and shaped like a grape fruit it renders the most amazing shots if you catch it correctly at its widest aperture.  Below is a shot of Nikki I shot this summer in the grounds of St Augustines at Westgate on Sea...a beautiful grade II listed building with lots of lush green garden surroundings that were great for some stunning backdrops :) James Davies Wedding Photography
