Mornington Peninsula Wedding photography
17th February 2013
As a Melbourne Wedding Photographer you must adapt your photographic style to suit your clients.
Lea and Sandy wanted to celebrate their union just with their family and their closest friends. It was to be a small and intimate event therefore this Mornington Peninsula Wedding was not about Formal Wedding Photography or Fashion Style Wedding photography, it was about capturing and respecting the sentiment of the day.
Our couple decided to rent a large house in Mount Martha and have their wedding and their reception in the house itself.
The house was large enough to accommodate their family and some of their friends for the night.
The romantic and intimate wedding ceremony, officiated by the wonderful celebrant Kirk Goodsell, took place in the house’s large front terrace overlooking the ocean.
It was important to capture the event in the most unobtrusive way possible.
Mauro, our second Melbourne Wedding Photographer, captured the Wedding Ceremony from afar, shooting from an adjacent terrace and from the main bedroom’s balcony, above the terrace.
Andrea, our principal Melbourne Wedding Photographer captured the Wedding Ceremony from the main terrace by crouching to avoid being in the line of vision of the couple and the guests.
The sweeping ocean view provided a picturesque background, a challenging back light added an artistic element to the photojournalistic coverage of the ceremony.
The balcony was also used to capture from above the whole party after the ceremony.
An excellent and different group photo.
A must for a Mornington Peninsula Wedding is to take photographs on the beach.
After the ceremony we drove our couple to Mount Martha’s South Beach for the location photo-shoot.
It was the ideal setting to create artistic and romantic Formal Beach Wedding Photography.
Once back at the house, Andrea, our principal Melbourne Wedding Photographer took a few formal photos from the street below of the couple standing on the terrace.
We only did a basic photojournalistic coverage of the reception because we were also guests and Lea and Sandy gave us strict orders to put the cameras down and enjoy ourselves. We sure did.
Dear Lea and Sandy, thank you and congratulations.
