A very convincing argument for 35mm Richard! Where can I buy one of those?

Some superb photos in there and some great storytelling. Really enjoyable to look at. Pity you missed my wedding by 20 + years.

Thank you... and not to worry!

Very enjoyable photos : )

Reasons, for me:

-I don't see anyone looking at you, you are obviously well acquainted with the guests or adept at staying in the background

-"FF look" in terms of shallow dof at those distances

-The targets are people and people like looking at people

-Very well processed b&w

Thanks for sharing.

Much appreciated, thank you.

#11 - A huge cut above the "standard" image, whatever "standard" means - decisive moment, emotion, dof selection, composition, etc., etc. One tiny, tiny nitpick - maybe get rid of the bright tiny, tiny white spot upper right.

Thanks Roger. It was a fun moment, for sure! I agree on the white spec. I try not to be too involved with post production in this way, but when it comes to printing/albums things like that are cleaned up at the final stage.

I like these. I've got a wedding coming up and have been going back and forth about what I want to use. Part of me wants to go with a 35 and 85, another part of me was leaning towards 15mm, 28-75, and a 105. Then there's the part of me that wants to bring everything for just in case.

Looking at your pics has me really considering going light with a 35 (gives me an excuse to go for the Sony 35/1.4) and 85.

I prefer the "11" on your website to the one you shared here.

Thanks! By 11, on the site... do you mean Laura entering with her mum? I always love images from that sequence as well, and this one is really lovely too.

On your setup, what are you most familiar with? What are you most comfortable with? I'd just go with that. Part of the point of me using 35 most of the time is it's where my vision/body/movement has aligned to - it's extremely natural for me to use because I've simply kept using it. For years. If you have something that you've used a lot like that, I'd keep using that! That way you can think more about the content, rather than the lens choice.

#12 Donald T ?
No, it can't be, else he would have been alone in the room

I am not overly happy about the B&W conversion, a bit harsh and dark, but i can see others like it, so...

What do wedding couple generally prefer ? Color or B&W ?

Donald T

Thankfully, not...

That's okay, B&W conversions and any processing is quite personal, especially for photographers. This is more or less where my wedding work goes, ricer shadows, slightly higher contrast, grain. It varies a bit here as this is a full day, many different situations etc. But it's in line with my portfolio, if you want to compare.

My couples or just anyone getting married? I can't speak for everyone obviously, but with me people see my work and like what they see. My portfolio has a mix of some colour injected. Clients love my B&W and generally like some pieces of colour, but you really need to have a proper conversation about this and anything around expectation setting.
I photograph the moments in people's lives that mean the most to them: Richard Harris Photography
