What an incredible time with this lovely couple. We love to pull our couples out for a few minutes during reception time. The silos were lit up as the couple was heading back in to return to their party. They took a few seconds to dance in the dark and we took those few seconds to nail a silo silhouette!
We did a portrait session with Ankita & Vikrant keeping Mumbai street as our theme. We shot at different spots with them when we reached this spot where some auto rickshaws were parked. We took some clear frames and then wanted to do something different using the vehicle to give it a more street look.
This was taken during the wedding of Kayleigh and Tom shortly after their wedding ceremony in Essex - I just adore this photograph. I love the added interest of their wedding car framing the couple and their pose helps create such a romantic moment between them.
This photograph was taken during the wedding of Sherri and Robert at Crabbs Barn, an Essex wedding venue based in Kelvedon, Colchester. During the portrait session is location had the most perfect light, so I first set up the individual bride and groom portraits and then captured a set of couple shots this being one of my favourites and I love any kind of reflections.
This photograph was taken at a quiet moment of reflection. The day started off with a steady rain which put everything in Plan B mode but by the time the ceremony took place, the rain had stopped and left behind the beautiful skies that are seen in this picture. The earlier storm proved to be a gift as it provided such glorious colors which reflected the love and joy that was present. The entire day was filled with smiles and everyone was lovely. No one more so than the bride and groom - a truly magical couple that were so perfect together. Congratulations....
This is one of my favourite images from Alison & Andy's wedding. I seriously felt like we were in some tropical paradise. It was an October wedding so there was a crisp felling in the air, I always love to play with perspective and use as much as the surroundings as possible, which consequently makes the couple look smaller in the frame. Alison and Andy were awesome and they embraced everything I asked them to do!!
This image was taken at Nelida & Savio's pre-wedding session at Sula Vineyards in India. We were almost done shooting with our couple when we entered the restaurant in the evening post sunset. It was a beautiful set up and we thought of placing our couple at that spot and backlit them. And this was the result.
This cute shot with this adorable boho beauty was inspired by the awesome juggling bartender, Chad, of Stir Beverage. We were having so much fun together getting creative shots with the bride at Chad's jungle bar, this badass "floating fruit"shot came to be. This was shot at Dillingham Ranch on Oahu's gorgeous North Shore of Hawaii.
This Boho Hawaiian Bride Natalie embraces one of the race horses she loves so dear at Dillingham Ranch on Oahu. This gorgeous shoot was just after sunrise. It was beautiful to see these horses which are normally so wild and full of energy, calm to Natalie's touch.
The bride wanted downtown Ottawa and the "first look" to take place at the Parliament Buildings. Considering this was going to be noon day sun and one of the major tourist attractions of Ottawa, Canada our nations capital with thousands of tourists around, we were extremely lucky to get this image without a lot of distractions. The ideal little couple big scene shot.
Taken amidst the ravages of Hurricane Matthew on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, Kelsey and Justin and I had one more shot in us. I had an assistant on camera right holding an umbrella and I placed a speed light in the groom's hand. We had one take, one shot to get it right. Thank you for the award!
Shortly before an outdoor ceremony by the sea, I set up a remote, panoramic camera - hoping to capture the incomparable setting from behind when the bride walked down the isle. While taking a few test shots, a playful couple meandered into the scene - transforming my trial exposures into a keeper! The gray November day seemed to call out for for black and white images. Stunning Waterfront Venue: The American Yacht Club, Rye, New York.
one Hour before we take this picture, it's very heavy rain, but fortunately 5 minutes after sunset, the sky is very gorgeous, we are very lucky to get this amazing sky and amazing couple. The most amazing thing is, they said this is their favorite image.
My clients told me I had "free creative reign" for their engagement shoot, which is a photographer's dream! I had always wanted to mix the arts and bring paint into a shoot. I am thankful for an unforgettable opportunity that ultimately created a unique image for the couple, as well as one of my favorite portfolio images.
My bride told me that she wanted me to have full creative freedom for their engagement session, to do something I have never tried but always wanted to. I really love creating light, and I knew that adding atmosphere would really enhance it, something I had never tried to play with... until that day... and my clients couldn't have been more thrilled! Seeing people love their images is my driving force to stay creative.
Lulu and Fritz were blessed to pull off an outdoor reception on the shores of Long Island Sound in mid-September.
I wanted to capture their beauty as a couple, the fun energy of their party and their incomparable setting at The American Yacht Club in Rye, New York. During a dance set, I asked if they'd give me a few minutes. Under a full autumn moon, all the elements seemed to come together magically!
Love Is In The Air
Love is in the air @ Wynwood Walls in Miami, Florida. With graphiti painted walls, posh decor, and lingerie for the legs, this couple rocked their day in style. There were so many great moments, but this was one of my favorites. Www.staciamorgan.com

Looking in on Kristin and Julian at Hart House, the historic student activity centre, part of the University of Toronto. Catering staff were kind enough to vacate this small alcove for a few minutes so that we could make this lovely image of the newly married couple!
Look at the horizon! So much has passed, so much yet to come...
Under a blue sky, a bride who walks in a path, two lines. For me, the photo has a deep meaning, a silent introspection, a beautiful desire for the unknown.
Marken, The Nederlands - 2016
Josh and Alanna had access to Riggs library at Georgetown University and we were thrilled to take some of their wedding portraits in this beautiful historic library. The architecture of the building is breathtaking and we really wanted to make the couple a part of this work of art.
It was the end of the night and we knew Erin and Stuart were making an exit from gorgeous Oatlands Historic House and Gardens in style. They had a Great Gatsby car pick them up at the end of a line of guests blowing bubbles. I wanted to create a special image that captured their intimacy and this incredible classic car, so I lit the cabin space and the side of the car in preparation and waited for the perfect moment.
It was November and it felt like winter! Snow was falling, winds were howling and this beautiful bride did not want to brave the cold. She was stunning inside and out and her dress was unlike any other we had seen before. She was taking a few moments to ponder over the wintery weather and we were able to show off her gorgeous silhouette. The door to the left of the bride really added a beautiful rim light to accentuate her figure.
I was so excited to be invited to New Orleans to photograph the wedding of Linda and Eddie. Linda was a client of mine turned dear friend over the years so when she got engaged and planned her wedding in New Orleans and asked me to photograph I was honored. Linda and Eddie are a special couple and are not into the "traditional" images. She didn't want ring shots and bridal prep or many posed portraits and in her words she wanted shots of them "walking down the street having fun." So we did! This image is the front of where their reception was to be held. From the front it looked like any other building in the French Quarter. And all of the vendors trucks were parked on the street in front so it was horribly distracting. So instead I panned the camera up to rid the frame of the distractions and I just loved the warmth of the sun flare. This turned out to be one of my favorites from the day.
Florine and Sylvain has a gorgeous September wedding, but we decided to head to the forest during the month of October for their trash the dress session, in order to enjoy the amazing autumn colors. We we're disappointed as the rain was falling and we were standing there in the middle of orange and red leaves.
At the end of December Tracey and Kelly came all the way from Texas to celebrate their beautiful destination wedding in Tyrol, Austria with their families and closest friends. They chose to party at the outstanding Hospiz Alm in St. Christoph at the Arlberg. Such a gorgeous wedding venue and there they have a huge wine cellar with hundreds of beautiful big wine bottles, that's the spot where we took this photo at the end of their wedding reportage. This magical place is definitely worth a visit when you are in this area next time!
A lovely summer wedding took me back down to Devon where I was originally from to photograph Anna and David's wedding. Originally from the North, they came for a holiday at Hotel Endsleigh and fell in love, knowing they wished to get married here. It was great to be asked to capture the day, having known Devon well and the hotel itself and its vast gardens, it made for some great shots. This particular shot has a street and a this bit of ledge overlooking the endless amount of large leaves... something out of a movie!
A fun moment with the bride and her best friends. While the fellows were being photographed in the distance, the gardener, who had left his broom nearby, unwittingly left us a great prop with which to satirize Kristin's first official domestic chore!
"Love always shines"
This was clicked at 2.30am, just after finish Deepak & Gahana engagement, I was just passing by this beautiful decorated lane just saw some one walking towards me in this dark background & I found my best picture frame for that day.
Thank you team wedaward for this award.
At first I have to write that this photo was taken without using dron. It was just before the sunset. This place is famous of its geyser. This photo is from the gallery 'DREAM'. If you would like to see more photos from this gallery go to: http://www.vladimir-citriak.eu/galeria/sen
