Creative Wedding Photos by Rex Preston
Wedding photos can be a little dull to anyone who isn’t personally connected to the subject therein due to a lack of creativity on the photographers part. But how do you capture a group of people standing in a circle, drinks in hand, chatting after a ceremony? As a wedding and event photographer, I have many tricks in my arsenal for making your wedding photos more engaging and memorable both for you and everyone else. One such trick is utilising reflective surfaces such as mirrors and sunglasses to frame a shot rather than pointing the camera directly at my subject.
One potential snag with this method is that you occasionally end up photo-bombing your own picture. On the plus side, I thought these occasional mishaps would make for an interesting blog. Thus, welcome to my first blog in a series entitled Where’s Rex? The idea is simply to spot me in the photo. I’ll start with an easy one.
I shot this at a bar in London just before the ceremony at a church up the street. The groom and his best man are looking at something on a phone while the this usher looks on. No matter what I did, I could’t find an angle where both the usher and groom were in the shot without also including myself. It’s still a great picture though – even if I did photo-bomb myself.
