Chateau de Lisse, Lot et Garonne, Joanne & Ivan
CHATEAU DE LISSE, LOT ET GARONNE, JOANNE & IVAN
Joanne & Ivan though originally from Ireland, have lived in Calgary Canada for the last 4 or so years.
I first met them several minutes before starting the days coverage of their wedding.
I'm always slightly 'nervous' for want of a better term when it comes to not having met clients prior to photographing them and their day as I never quite know what I am going to get and wedding photography is very much about getting all your planets in align, - location/settings, weather, light, subject, composition, cropping/framing and moment.
Fortunately every single planet aligned for their wedding at the delightful Chateau de Lisse and I am becoming quite a regular there having shot a wedding there last year and having another at the end of this month, plus bookings for 2015.
So the location is great, the venue a delight, the people that run it very welcoming (Jo and her husband, chef, Jean-Marc plus Father William & Sister Catherine), the weather was perfect, the light just about as good as it gets and the rest was very much about 'them' and 'me'.
Me, - I always turn up with the same skills, tools and passion for my craft, but what makes the fundamental difference between a decent set of images and the most comprehensive set of results, is the clients and to an extent, the guests.
They couldn't have been better. Both Joanne and Ivan, though a few inevitable nerves, took it all in their stride and their families were both as equally welcoming and laid back.
I also love these small(er) weddings because 'everything' still happens (in this case no speeches or dancing) as at a large(r) wedding, but on a more intimate level and their is something special about that. Just 14 of them at this one.
Full gallery with international print ordering facility available here and Joanne & Ivan, I hope you love the pictures as much as you do each other.
INTRODUCTION Where to start with this one...?Pretty special is probably a good way to describe it.One thing I say to all my clients is the more you include me, the better the result will be. Case proved yet again!I met Kiki the bride...
INTRODUCTION Every now and again, a wedding comes along that on paper sounds perfect, but sometimes, reality doesn't quite meet expectations. I thought I was done for the season with a final wedding on the first weekend of October. But then,...
INTRODUCTION Posy & Mike's Chateau de Saint Paul Wedding. There is a myth out there that needs squashing. That myth is that venue experience is important. I get why some couples want...need sometimes, to see previous weddings at...
