The Best Of Wedding Photography : Wedding Highlights

It’s time to take a stroll through some of my personal favourites, the shots I feel really show off the best of wedding photography from Belinda McCarthy Photography. Here, on this section you’ll find each post features a single image, giving a particular insight into what I find so special about the photograph, and why it really captures my aims and ambitions when I photograph weddings.

This section will be updated on a regular basis, showing off images from not only the documentary wedding photography work I undertake, but from all parts of the wedding day – from bridal prep, to guests, wedding decor details,flowers – anything, in fact, which I feel stands out as a lovely image with a particular story to tell. After all, weddings are stories, and our job as wedding photographers is to accurately capture and tell that story.

Don’t forget, the main wedding blog on the website is where to go for in-depth images of latest weddings, so make sure you head over there too!

The Best Of: Bridal Prep, Depth and Context

Today's 'Best Of' image blog is titled in perhaps a rather confusing way - so I'll do my best to explain.  This image, photographed at a recent wedding in Dorset, was taken during the bridal preparations at the bride's parents house in Briantspuddle, prior to the...

The Best Of : Children on the Dancefloor

When I'm photographing a wedding, the first dance is a key element of the proceedings. Capturing the connection between the bride and groom as they dance together for the first time is something that I strive for every time. However, it's often AFTER the first dance...

The Best Of : The Moment Before the Ceremony

Photographing the entrance of the bride at the wedding ceremony is always an important moment in the working day of any wedding photographer. The emotions a bride feels at this moments are ones she will feel forever, and so the opportunity to take a shot which will...

The Best of : The Lift

Does your first dance have a 'lift' in int? If it does, make sure that you practice it well, so that you can have this kind of look of joy on your face during the moment, rather than a look of terror! This first dance image, photographed during a wedding at Clevedon...

The Best Of : The Processional

The processional is one of those key moments in a wedding day; a moment which can be a one in a lifetime event. As a wedding photographer, it's vital that we capture a processional in the most striking, emotive way -  which will help both bride and groom recall...

The Best Of: Church Light

As a photographer, light is everything. And, as a documentary wedding photographer, you constantly come up against the challenges that ambient light throws at you. Too harsh, too dark, colour casted from a strong colour on the walls.... and yet, in order to work...

The Best Of: The First Dance

For the 'best of' series of blog posts, it's time to come back to one of the most photographed moments of a wedding day - the first dance. I've photographed many in my time as a wedding photographer in Dorset & Somerset, and at many different wedding venues. I...

The Best Of: Photo Booths

You might be surprised to know that I, as a documentary wedding photographer, love photo booths. It might sound incongruous to what I do, but when a wedding has a photo booth, it actually works hugely in my favour for two reasons. Firstly, it means that it fulfils the...

The Best Of: The Look

Documentary wedding photography is all about tiny, individual moments of magic, woven together to create a stunning story landscape of an unforgettable day. Moments which come and go in a fraction of a second, yet when brought back into the memories of those who were...

I'm really thrilled to bring you a special 'best of' blog today, for one of my favourite wedding images has been honoured in the 17th Collection Wedisson awards with a 'best wedding photography' award! The Wedisson Award is an international wedding photography...

The Best Of: The First Dance

The first dance of the bride and groom - time to kick off the evening wedding celebrations! However, it's often the case that the wedding couple don't look forward to their first dance as much as they should, as the idea of being watched on the dancefloor can be...

The Best Of: Arrivals

The bride's arrival is one of those epic moments in any wedding day - and one which, as a wedding photographer, is often an event which is hard to photograph. The truth is that it's very often the case that the bride's wedding car is absolutely surrounded by...
