BYRON BAY WEDDING PHOTOS
GARY JONATHON COLLECTION
The Cloak of Invisibililty
I love it when Brides and Grooms say that they felt so at ease and therefore hardly noticed I was there.
Then there is the canvas.
We are so lucky with so many stunning venues around Byron, Broken Head, Lennox Head and Ballina. From white beaches to old farm buildings and tropical forests. All around the Northern Rivers NSW and Byron Bay, the country is rich in colour and form.
And did I mention the Byron Hinterland? So often there is a new venue or a lane way that is waiting to be discovered. There are the quaint villages of Bangalow, Federal, Eureka, The Channon, Newrybar, Binna Burra, Eltham, Clunes and many more within a stone’s throw.
For your precious Byron Bay wedding photos, this is gold. Every location a gem!
The saying ‘Beauty is in the eye of the beholder’ is an understatement. If I show two people some of my Byron Bay wedding photos and asked them to rate the shots, they will rarely agree.
Some like arty effects, some like formality, some like dark moody images, some love the pastel cottage look.
Then there are the photographic tricks we use such as utilising extreme depths of field. We can increase aperture to reduce focus to a short range or we can slow down shutter speed to see movement. Then there is time lapse or distortion with wide angle or telephoto lenses.
There are so many filters and photographic gizmos that I can’t recall why I bought some of that gear.
On top of that, the beauty of a digital image is that it can be modified using Photoshop to something totally different.
First of all, it is OK to be fussy.
I say it should be more than OK for the reason that you are paying someone to record your wedding day. It should be law.
Your Byron Bay wedding photos must be just what you had in mind. Above all, these wedding photos are for YOU to enjoy.
Furthermore, it doesn’t matter what anyone else likes. They can have their say when they get married.
The great advantage with Byron Bay wedding photos is that there are so many magic locations to choose from. Beaches, headlands, rivers, waterfalls, streams, mountains, rain forest, gardens and plantations.
Likewise, there are so many novel streetscapes around Ballina, Byron Bay, Ewingsdale, Bangalow, Lennox Head – the list goes on.
No wonder there are more than 1000 weddings and elopements in Byron Bay every year!
