WHY I LOVE THIS PIC - JOHN RICE - ETERNITY PHOTOGRAPHY
I love the fact that this was photographed in the early afternoon when the sun is not wanting to play ball and the light is harsh.
Usually wedding ceremonies in Margaret River are around 4pm but this one at Basildene Manor was earlier.
By having a look around the gardens I had worked out where I could use the lighting conditions to our advantage and get some interesting photographs.
As the sun was overhead I could see that this tree was getting some really nice back lighting on the leaves. This creates a really lovely effect where the greens of the leaves glow and sparkle.
Some very easy simple direction had the bride and groom in position, relaxed and having fun.
I photographed some closer in and this one which I love shows all the branches curving through the canopy.
