Anthony and Tia


I had the distinct pleasure of photographing Anthony and Tia's wedding on Saturday. It was a looooong day, starting at 10am and finishing at about midnight. No, I don't normally stay for the reception but...Talk about a great couple. Tia is simply beautiful, and her very happy husband Anthony is a lovely young man. Together we all had such fun. Tia had an innate sense for posing and could quickly see what it was I was endeavouring to achieve.I have often found that 'beautiful' and 'photogenic' rarely come together in one person. But Tia was definitely both. For a photographer, that can only mean an enjoyable photo session. Anthony was also great to work with. A handsome, enthusiastic, cooperative young man who really wanted some great photographs.

I once again employed some of my favourite off camera flash techniques and by it overcame the drab nature of the light during some parts of the day. I've said it before and I will say it again -I do love that off camera flash stuff!

Our final stop before the reception was Luna Park in St Kilda. I would like to thank Rod at Luna Park for allowing us access to one of the oldest and most beautiful merry-go-rounds and for permission to photograph Anthony and Tia having fun on the ride. These photographs are not easy to get and I really appreciated being given permission and access.
So the whole, long, day was a lot of fun and a great honour. My thanks to you both!

Shelton, I really like that picture of Tia on a white background; no distractions, just the subject. Is that a product of a lot of photoshoping ? Did you have a while drape and some brolly lights ? How did you realize this "studio looking" shot ?
