In this fourth part the poor weather forces a change of plan, the Brides concern for her dress means initial plans to shoot in the park have to scrapped but Marks forethought means an alternative has already been planned allowing a seamless change to a venue right next to the reception. Once on location Mark shoots groups with the Bridesmaids and Best man before sending them over to the reception so he can focus on the Bride and Groom portraits. Mark utilises the location for beautiful natural light images, using a reflector to lift where needed. Then he adds variety with some wider shots using the buildings fantastic architecture before finishing with some fun dips and spins, as requested by the couple in the pre-wedding discussions.

We join Mark on the Academy’s first destination wedding with Tamsin and Greg, who decided to get married on the sunny Spanish island of Majorca.
 
In this part we move from the church, where Mark picks up a few images with the couple as the guests leave, over to the reception venue where Mark begins with the Bride and Groom portraits. You’ll see how frustrating real clients can be as Mark has only ten minutes to shoot with the couple before they have enough, so it shows how important it is to work quickly as you might not get long to get the images you need.
 

Equipment: 2x Canon 5DMKII, Canon 24-105mm, Canon 70-200mm, Canon 50mm, Sekonic L358 Lightmeter, Canon 580EXII Speedlite, Quantum SC Battery, Honl Speed Gobo/Reflector, Lastolite Trigrip Silver/White
