Tis the season for sparkle – wedding sparklers more specifically! I had a good chat with photographer Emily Johnson the other day and we’re agreed – there’s rarely a couple who don’t want a lit up send off when it gets towards this time of year…and why not? There’s something so utterly magical about twinkly light – it’s a little bit fairytale without being too twee and boy does it make your skin look good!
I’m from the KISS (keep it simply stylish) school of thinking normally – less is more when it comes to planning wedding shots…the long exposure style ones with names and dates spelt out are cool but can perhaps look a little too contrived at times – it’s the more off-the-cuff couples running through a haze of light hoping to not be set on fire, or having their “movie moment” send-off kiss and generally slightly tipsy “we’re having-a-blast” images that really do it for me.
Of course I like to believe I’m a purist with an eye only for effortless design…but there’s also always a place for the odd heavily styled, gimmick shot too 🙂 Here’s our top 5:
Such a Disney Rapunzel moment above…I bloody love it!
