I thought I would have a little fun and offer you a few “behind the scene” shots of a wedding day. In the images below you’ll see me setting up the shot as well as the final image. I’ve also added a little insight into the photographs.
First we’ll start in Old Montreal – one of the best locations for wedding photography in Montreal. Although Old Montreal has plenty of picturesque streets and architecture, I also like to work with neutral backgrounds to really bring out my subjects. I chose to process this finished photo in black and white because it enhances the timeless quality of the image. The stone behind adds a beautiful textured backdrop to this simple portrait.
Below is a photo of me capturing the pure joy on the face of the bride’s daughter as she watches her mother put on her wedding dress. It’s little moments like these that set Kate Fellerath Photography apart from the other photographers in Montreal. It’s about recognizing the moments that are special and being able to capture those moments in a natural way.Winter weddings can be challenging for even the most seasoned photographers. It gets dark much earlier and it can get very cold outside – so you need to work quickly! But the results of an outdoor winter wedding shoot are always unique and magical. It must not seem fair to see what I’m wearing to be outside vs. what the wedding party is wearing in -20 degree weather.
The photo below is interesting because it shows how, as a photographer, you need to recognize the photographic potential of a challenging location. I chose to photograph the bride and groom against this industrial background because it added a nice texture, contrast and depth to the photo. This image is made all the more striking because the bride and groom are the most colourful part of it (especially that stunner of a wedding bouquet by Atelier Carmel). I used a portrait lens (Canon 50mm f.1.2) for this photo, so the background would blur nicely. This is where good camera equipment and a beautiful portrait lens pays off.
And of course, you can’t talk about wedding photography without mentioning the reception. The best part about being a wedding photographer is getting into the action and being part of an amazing day. Thank you to all my clients who’ve included me in their special day – I am truly honoured.
