Best Wedding Photos of 2016 by PhotoAlbert – Wedding Photographer Surrey

“Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop”! ( Ansel Adams, 1902-1984)

It may seen egotistical to challenge the quote of a person so highly acclaimed for his landscape shots, but I suspect Ansel Adams never spent time working as a Surrey wedding photographer.

As a wedding photographer, each day is a special may not be your special day, but you are invited to share in the smiles and the love. Consequently, choosing my favorite wedding shots for 2016, has been somewhat challenging. And whilst I may not have adhered to Ansel Adam’s thinking, I am sure he would agree that each picture portrays happiness and love…what could be more significant than that?

As a wedding photographer, I stick by the rule that it is more important to click with people, than it is to click with the camera. It is impossible to capture a picture which is true if the bride or groom are not relaxed within your company. I’m not on a crusade to re-write the rules of photography, but I don’t think a great photograph is made…I think it is felt.

Wedding photographs will hopefully be perused for decades to come, so creating images which retain their power with the test of time is imperative. And there is perhaps nothing more time proofed than the nostalgia felt when looking back at pictures of the children at your wedding. I absolutely adore these pictures.

When it comes to defining love, the words can sometimes fail us…but a picture, it says all we need to know. It was my absolute privilege to photograph the wedding in Kensington. The shots are just a snippet of the laughs that I experienced! I love the natural smiles and the serenity of the bride’s face as she dances with her new husband.

During nearly 10 years as a wedding photographer, it is fair to say that I have found the key to perfecting the confetti shot, you need lots! The use of a confetti cannon creates a snowfall type effect..throw in the smiling guests and you have the perfect picture! Just some of my favorite below!

This stunning photograph illustrates what I am trying to say. It’s not stylised or posed, it’s literally snapped through the car window, but the trust between the bride and her photographer is what makes it seem so honest. Simply stunning!

The perfect wedding may be captured on camera, but it is a combination of the perfect wedding dress, flowers and the venue which make the day so special. A backdrop can make or break a photograph. From the manicured gardens at Winchester Royal Hotel to the recently revamped interior at Drayton Court London, I am lucky enough to have worked with some of the best. However, this is my absolute favorite, taken on a staircase steeped in history Moor Park Mansion, Rickmansworth.
