 Hamilton Portrait and Wedding Photographer | Oz Photography

2016sep04_sue_tony-265September 4, 2016 Suellen and Tony were married at Carmens Banquet Center. The wedding was 12 hours in length starting from a downtown Hamilton hotel for Suellen and the girls and from a home in Burlington for Tony and the guys. This wedding required 2 photographers and while I photographed the girls getting ready my second photographer Christine photographed the guys.

Then it was on to Dundurn Castle to do all the photo shoots prior to the actual ceremony at Carmens. The day could not have been better, it was partly sunny and cool. At Dundurn Castle it was decided to do a reveal with Suellen and Tony. Each of them waited on each side of a park structure waiting in anticipation of seeing one another. As you can appreciate the emotions run high knowing the person you are marrying is on the other side of the wall!

As a wedding photographer this is one of the most important shots you cannot miss, the tears, joy, love and excitement all shown within a few seconds. The bridal party went wild when they embraced one another. As a wedding photographer you are also hit with delayed emotion after you have captured the shots. This is one reason why I love what I do and am grateful to be trusted as a part of theirs lives together.

Then it was off to do all the family photos, relatives from England and Africa attended this wedding and lots of friends, co-workers. As I mentioned the ceremony was at Carmens Banquet Center in Hamilton. One of the highlights of the evening were the African dancers,. They were incredible and had everyone in the room up on their feet dancing to the African drums.

Hamilton Portrait and Wedding Photographer | Oz Photography

These days almost everyone out there has some kind of camera whether it be a smartphone or a point and shoot camera. Your family member, relative or friend may have an expensive camera and the best of intentions, but they probably don’t have the experience to adjust exposure or have an understanding of typical camera settings, change lenses on the fly, properly lighted portraits or pose group photos.

An entire wedding shot on a camera’s auto setting makes for a regrettable album. These days cameras are abundant in smart phones and other devices and can take a reasonable snap shot photographs but will they match the equipment and skill of a professional photographer? Of course not.

A missed first kiss , an out-of-focus flower girl, a poorly lit bridal portrait — these are some of the things that ruin wedding pictures. While friends and family may be well-equipped to take snapshots before and after the ceremony, you need a professional wedding photographer to create gorgeous images and to catch those fleeting action moments that only happen once in a lifetime.

A professional has done these events time and time again and know what to do and when to do it. The professional has an array of equipment to make sure your wedding goes off without a hitch from a technical standpoint. However photography is an art form and skills are learned from over the years to make sure we capture the essence of your event.

Whether it be a portrait, engagement or a wedding a professional photographer is an “Architect of Your Precious Memories” Don’t trust these memories to anyone else. Hire a pro.
