Denh and Glenn's wedding

As I have often said, it is an honour to photograph any wedding, let alone the wedding of a fellow photographer. True, most couples know what they are looking for in terms of the images they hope for from their wedding day, but photographers have even greater insight into your processes.Denh Lay is a fine photographer herself, so photographing her wedding is more daunting, and more of a privilege. Denh and Glenn's official wedding day began with a traditional Chinese tea ceremony and then followed on to Immerse Winery where their civil celebrant married them before a crowd of family, friends and fellow photographers. Its quite an off-putting thing to work in front of other photographers like Jeff Moorfoot!
But, I think I pulled it off. The light in vineyard was beautiful, and the sky did some great things for us all. In essence, the key to successful photography is in finding the light, and putting them in it!
Interestingly, I used a new lens I have acquired, one which I never thought I would use at a wedding. As a kind of Tamron Ambassador here in Australia, I have been allowed to borrow their Tamron 18-250 AF zoom, and it was just a great all-rounder that saved me alot of time and allowed to expand my vision from each viewpoint. It is very sharp, and very, very handy. I now own one!
Congratulations Glenn and Denh! I wish you both every happiness and thank you both kindly for the privilege, and for some rather exhausting fun!

Love the mood of the portraits especially the one of the bridal party in the field.

It seems that you really practice what you preach and have that capturing light thing down... the images have amazing depth, detail, mood and pop. Some of them have a very HDR feel.

I will be contacting Nikon soon to let them know that my D200 must be broken or something because it does not seem to produce the same brilliant images as yours... oh wait... it is not the camera... Obviously!

Keep up the great work and thanks for sharing so much of your work, your experience, and of course yourself.
