Shin & Giselle
September 20th 2014
On this very day, I was fortunately hired to shoot for my first church wedding photo shoot.
The challenge of the shoot came primarily from the restriction of flash usages in the church. Hence, I had to bump up the ISO in order for the shots to be exposed properly.
Also, everything happens simultaneously during a ceremony. Using a slower shutter speed will result in blurry images of the couple when the action begins. So overall how ? Ok-ok lah.
Had to start early in order to shoot the make up and hairstyling session.
Entire ‘beautifying’ process took approximately 1 hour plus. Seems pretty efficient.
The groom and his fellow brothers came to “pick the bride”. This is a Chinese traditional wedding culture where the groomsmen have to overcome a few obstacles (usually set up by the bridesmaids) before the groom could ultimately take his treasured prize back home.
That is not all.
After an hour filled with crazy games, the bride groom faces the …
LAST CHALLENGE !
Finally Shin gets into the room and collect his bride.
In the Church
After collecting the bride, the couple head towards the church.
At the end of the ceremony, everything went smoothly as planned. Wonderful and cheerful couple to work with.
