Beautiful Photography from Amanda Balmain
The impatient artist in me loves wedding photography. Its fast paced and high pressure. There is an element of control though. I can to some extent choose the light and of course control the composition. Its an exciting mix of deciding what to do with the elements you are given in the time you have. As you build in experience you start to trust yourself much more knowing immediately what you want from each scene. Now I see light in a whole new way and can get a bit over-excited about a reflection or a sunset. I love every minute of it and for me a wedding day goes by so fast. It doesn’t feel like work. So when you see me on a wedding day looking hot, tired and weighed down with gear don’t worry, I’m having the time of my life.
I'm usually a calm and quiet person who handles a wedding day gently with the minimum of fuss. I believe you should be the centre of attention at all times and I prefer to work quietly in the background. Any changes I make to get the shots that you want are small and subtle. I like my images to be dreamy and romantic but I also think that honesty is important. I like to photograph real romantic moments. My images are often fun as well and suit the modern fairy-tale bride.
I love the emotion. From the nervous energy in the morning to the giddy elation of the dance floor. I also think its the one day where its easy to see the real beauty in everyone. Of course you are all looking at your best but its the emotion that makes you truly beautiful.
Start looking for a photographer as early as you can and do your research. Personal recommendations are great. Look for someone with a consistent style that you like. Meet with them if at all possible and make sure that you like them enough to have them there on your wedding day. Lastly check that they have insurance and back-up equipment.

We used Amanda to take some photos during our ceremony and some family shots before the meal. She was absolutely wonderful, we hardly noticed that she was there and she was brilliant at organising everyone for the group shots. Amanda spent a considerable amount of time outside in the rain and didn't mind doing whatever she could to get the perfect shots. When we received the link for the pictures, we were so so pleased with them. There were some beautiful photos of everyone we'd asked for and everyone commented on how lovely they were. I couldn't recommend Amanda highly enough! Thank you so much! X
