Our Wedding Day: Beach Photo Shoot

The Mr. and Mrs.
The Mr. and Mrs.

I promise, this is the last photo essay of our wedding photos. These were taken right after the ceremony in the light of the fading sun.

John and I were a little disappointed that we didn’t get more beach photos. Out of 350 photographs, we only had about 25 taken on the beach, and these were the best of those 25. Personally, I don’t think the photographer did a really great job, considering what we paid him. Some of these photos are a bit over-exposed and the shots he took indoors were terrible. He didn’t bother to use a tripod, so the photos of me throwing my bouquet, our first dance and our dances with our parents were out-of-focus. Ah, well. At least we have a few good ones, and the rest will remain memories in our hearts forever.

This one is my favorite out of the bunch.

    I think you look at your pictures more critically than other people. However I understand you can be disappointed in quality and quantity of these photos. But in my opinion these are glamorous.
    This is love. 🙂

    Your photography is very good. The lighting and the sentiment are well controlled here.

    A very carefully chosen time of the day for this type of wedding photography. It is a lot of effort to make both of them too appear relaxing and happy to do all the shots here

    I love these. I already mentioned I loved the colour of your bouquet, and here it looks wonderful against the sea and sky. And you both look so happy! (Imagine me sitting with a cheesy grin behind my desk now)

      Ha! That cheesy grin came to mind perfectly.

      Hi Nik,
      I’m sure your girlfriend will have a say over what beach she wants to get married at. In the meantime, that gives you food for thought with Unearthing Asia!

    Actually, these photos are wonderful. . . . I’m a pro photographer and they should be a bit over-exposed as it makes them softer and more romantic. . . . under-exposing beach type images with sun could lead to harsh shadows. I think your photographer did an amazing job!!!! I would love to see the others. Action shots are supposed to be a bit blurry. Who wants an image of a bouquet and all the girls completely frozen perfect in time? Boring. Unrealistic. I actually slow my shutter down for action shots specifically to get the blur of the “party pic” look. It’s real art.
