Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at a recent wedding I photographed in North Wales, UK. I don't shoot many weddings as a personal choice, but when I do, i have the best.
Time
It was taken in the afternoon, it was such a hot, sunny day which is unusual for Wales as its normally grey and wet.
Lighting
To the left of my subject was a window which allowed me to use natural light, I metered for the highlights and got this one off shot.
Equipment
Simply my trusty canon 6D and Sigma 35 Art Lens.
Inspiration
As much as I love the portrait side of weddings, I also love to capture the small things, the expressions, the details. I wasn't my brides and grooms to look back through their images and see a story of their day unfold including the moments that they missed. For this particular shot, the little girl was gifted a necklace from her mum who was soon to be marrying her daddy, the look on her face is simply adorable, a true example of why I never put my camera down.
Editing
Not a great deal, I am a fan of fill look with a little added grain, for this particular shot I muted the greens and applied a LXC Preset and made some adjustments to the highlights.
In my camera bag
Canon 6d, Canon 50mm 1.4, Canon 85mm 1.8, sigma 35mm. 1.4 and Canon 70-200 along with a couple of canon speed lights. this is pretty much my go to lens collection for all situations.
Feedback
keep that camera to hand all day, capture everything and everyone, start at the beginning and tell a wonderful story of a wonderful day.
