Lynne Kennedy

In Lynne’s words –

I am based in the beautiful Highlands of Scotland and I cover weddings across the whole region including the Isle of Skye, Outer Hebrides. We have some of the most stunning scenery in the world in the Scottish Highlands and one of the things I love best on a wedding day is taking the bride and groom for a little location shoot somewhere tranquil and beautiful, where they have a bit of time alone before going back to join the party.

The evening critiques – Monday

After a hard day’s work, all the participants return for a quick freshen up and then it’s straight into the critiques – it has been known in the past for these to carry on until 6am! In fact as I am blogging this I believe the last team has just finished their critiques – its 5.50 am and some of them need to be up in the next two hours for day two of shooting.

So what are the critiques like? Every frame analysed and pulled apart, whether you came back with 200 or 2000 ; and trust me, the spectrum is broad.  There is no going out for dinner or leaving the room if you are tired – you stay up and listen to not only your own, but your whole team’s critiques. It can seem relentless, but you learn so, so much. Day one is the day where you realise that maybe you are not quite as good as you thought you were, and that there is definite room for improvement. But the criticism is constructive, and every person walks away with a good idea on what they need to do the next day.

And as the next day is pretty much here its also time for the media central to get some shut eye – but of course not without leaving you with some insight to what goes on behind closed doors!

Yasmin Mariess

Yasmin is wedding and portrait photographer based in Guernsey.

In her own words –

An excitement for life and the people I meet, is what inspires my photography,
in other words it’s the client, that makes my work unique. I love the involvement in people’s lives; a privilege that photography affords me. My enthusiasm to get that unique shot is infectious, making the experience of being photographed as exciting as the moment you see the final images.

Steve Tarling

Steve is wedding and portrait photographer based in Suffolk.

In his own words –

I have been a wedding photographer since 1993. Working with couples as they plan their lives together is incredibly rewarding. Over the years I have developed a unique style to help them capture precious moments during their day. Through a photo-journalistic record every moment, glance and smile is captured. By moving away from the formal traditional style, true personalities shine through.

In her own words –

I photograph what I see. It’s really that simple! I’m always looking for beautiful light and beautiful moments, and when thoughtfully composed, every image is elegant and special. Combining this approach with an emphasis on telling a story through documenting your day as it unfolds results in an honest visual time line full of emotion and memories.
