Photo Love {Jess and Ash}

Welcome to Photo Love. This is the title I give to the blog posts I write about one photo and why I love it. Sometimes I love the photo because of the composition or lighting, while other times it is because of the story behind the photo. My favourite photos are when there is a combination of both. I hope you enjoy the story and the photo.

Jess is a very talented economics journalist and author of two books. It was therefore very fitting that Jess would be married at the NSW Writers Centre in Rozelle. What I love about this photo is that it captures a very special time at Jess and Ashley’s wedding. It captures one of the few moments you have on your wedding day when it is just you and your partner (and a glass of champagne :)). This is a chance, albeit brief, to reflect on the craziness of the day, collect your thoughts and prepare for the craziness ahead.

This photo was taken just after I had taken the group photos with Jess and Ash’s family. Normally after these photos are taken, the couple take the opportunity to mingle with their guests. I like to give the couple a break from me at this point, change to a zoom lens (Canon 70 – 200 f2.8L IS II for the photographer nerds amongst you) and take photos from afar without imposing. Just as I crouched down to change lenses, I noticed Jess and Ash walking along the path. So I waited. I left the Canon 24-70 lens on my camera and waited until they reached a point where the light would hit them. Just as it did I snapped three quick photos and this was the best. It was one of Jess’ favourites from the day. Mine too.

Thanks for visiting Iconic Photography. My name is Nicholas Brown and I am a Canberra wedding and family photographer. I am also a husband, a father and a bit of a nerd. What I love about wedding and family photography is getting to know people, listening to their stories and then helping them tell their story. Oh … and I also love coffee. So, if you’d like to sit down over a cup and tell me your story, I would love to hear it and help you share it.
