3 Chapters and 3 Years of Friendship | V. Opoku

One of the most rewarding things about what I do is the fact that I get to become friends with strangers from all over the world. Isabelle, Florent and I met in person for the first time 3 years ago, just one day before their wedding and we’ve remained friends ever since. During that period, we’ve shared some fun moments together including celebrating a friend’s wedding, Bastille Day under the Eiffel Tower one summer evening and helping Florent put their kitchen together. In fact, their home has become my home whenever I am in Paris. And as fate would have it, I happened to be in Paris at the “right time” on various occasions – one during the latter stages of Isabelle’s pregnancy and the other around Yaelle’s first few months. However, doing a maternity and baby shoot was not something we planned in advance, they just happened, right there on the spot ; “my flight is in a few hours, should we grab some frames before I head out?”…….

Using a Fuji X-Pro2 at a real wedding |  David McClelland

I’m delighted to share with you this wedding of Aoife and Patrick at The G Hotel in Galway. I’d never been to The G and I’m sure that anyone who has been there can agree with me that it’s all a little bit of a shock to the senses when you walk inside. No two rooms are the same, every wall seems to be either a different colour or texture. It’s a very fun place and for a photographer, quite the playground. I was blessed with Aoife and Patrick because they wanted to keep things nice and simple. So simple in fact that Aoife didn’t care about getting a shot of the dress on a hanger or shoes sitting on a box. She wasn’t worried or concerned with getting shots of the girls helping her into her dress. No, all Aoife and Patrick wanted from their photography was that it was natural, and of the moment – with a few creative shots added to the mix later when we had some time to play with. Music to my ears. There was a little bit of added fun to the day with the fact that this was my first wedding I shot with the Fuji X-Pro 2. I’ll leave a bit of space at the bottom of the blog to tell those interested about my experiences if you’re interested…….

My 2015 | V. Opoku

I know most people usually put their end of year review together in December or early January, but I to like to sit on things for a little while longer. I prefer to be 3 or 4 weeks into the new year before I take a moment to reflect on the previous on. So how was my 2015? It was filled with highs & lows and a new beginning. The year started of on a high, things fizzled out a little in the middle and then ended on a high. The Start: I became an Official Fujifilm X-Photographer, was selected as a member of X100C and got featured on ShotKit. I had an epic 4  days in Paris where I photographed my favorite engagement session to date – Monique + Paul, then Sylvana + Jeremy’s beautiful wedding as well as a spontaneous & unconventional maternity session with Isabelle + Florent. I had weddings published in Asiana Magazine and on a few other online wedding blogs. The likes of Thomas Menk, Patrick and Heather & Mathieu continued to curate my work and shared with their audience, I earned new contacts…….

A year with Fuji | Scott Williams

My switch to Fuji…. get comfy, this is going to be a long one. Since I had first picked up a camera I had only ever shot with Nikon cameras.  I had known nothing else. My first DSLR, and my first camera, was the D70 (Yay 1/500 sync speed!).  From there I used a D200 for a little while until ‘old faithful’ was introduced… the Nikon D3.  It was a great camera.  I loved using it, I loved the files it produced.  It was the kind of camera that immediately got noticed when I walked into a room (more on that later).  I also had a D700, which had the exact same sensor, just in a smaller (and cheaper) body. I used these cameras day in and day out for over 7 years.  I dropped them a couple times, repaired them a couple times and cursed them a couple times.  Last time I checked, the shutter on my D3 was close to 400,000 actuations.  Only a small percentage of those are cat pictures………

1 Year with the FujiFilm XT-1 – A RETROspective |
Caveira Photography

1 year on with the Fuji XT-1 and a myriad of other FujiFilm gear. Honestly, I pondered this post today, started collating some of my favourite photos, and then realised that today is my 1 year anniversary with the FujiFilm XT-1. Spooky?! Nah. Just math. Well, I must say, it has been a fantastic 12 months using Fuji’s X-series 100%. I have traveled a fair bit of the world with my kit and put it through a heck of a lot of varied circumstances. On the streets, through weddings, in the sweat of live music, the pace of MMA, and through various nations, it’s been a fantastic journey developing as a photographer, and as a person, refining my creative path through the medium. Not only that, but my hipster factor has grown exponentially with the XT-1’s retro dials, coupled with my hair…….

A year in review…. | Scott Williams

As we begin 2016 I thought it might be nice to take a look back at how great 2015 was! I had a bunch of amazing couples and weddings at some of the best wedding venues in Toronto and Ontario including Fermenting Cellar, Hessenland Country Inn, Bruce Hotel, One King West, Liberty Grand, Waterloo Region Museum, One King West (again!) The Tannery, Copper Creek Golf Course, The Stirling Room, 99 Sudbury, Ancaster Mill, Federation Hall and WhistleBear Golf Course as well as weddings across ontario including Tobermory and Windsor. Now, usually I do a slideshow for these year end posts but this year I thought I’d try something different and post 10 of my favourite images.  Wow… it was way tougher to pick 10 than I thought.   So many great moments from the year but I finally managed to whittle it down to my favourite 10 (in no particular order!) …….

Winnie & Elvin – Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam |
Caveira Photography

What a way to finish up 2015. Winnie and Elvin sure know how to celebrate their marriage, with not 1, but 3 weddings across 3 different countries. We had the honour of shooting their wedding in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, where the always lovely Winnie grew up. The blending of east and west, and tradition with modern opulence were perfect, with an emphasis on family and respect for Vietnamese culture permeating throughout the day. Winnie & Elvin, we feel privileged for the experience, and especially enjoyed the numerous local cuisines you lavished upon us while we were in HCMC…….

Wedding in Versailles – Mana and Sylvain | V. Opoku

During the summer, Mana and Sylvain had me along for their Wedding in Versailles and we had a great time. I’ve always wanted to visit, but I seem to run out of time whenever I’m in Paris, so when the opportunity arose to go to Versailles and shoot a wedding at the same time, you can imagine how thrilled I was! However, what was supposed to be a 60 mins flight from London to Paris took more than 4 hours – delayed boarding & departure times and then a change of aircraft due to a fault on the initial plane. I eventually arrived in Paris at 1am on the day of the wedding, but all the trouble was worth it. In the end, it was truly incredible and beautiful experience spending the day with Mana, Sylvain, their family and friends. We partied until 5am!……..

US IN BCN | Meli and Pablo | Barcelona Honeymoon | V. Opoku

Exploring Barcelona with loving couples is a goal of mine now that I live here. I created US IN BCN because I’m driven to document stories of love and adventure in and around the city. Meli & Pablo are newlyweds travelling the world for their honeymoon, and they were kind enough to let me be a part of their Barcelona Honeymoon Adventure. We met by chance, got on fairly well, and before we knew it we were sharing stories and ideas over glasses of vermouth. 48 hours later the three of us spent the day climbing a mountain together. We had so much fun up there that we almost didn’t make it back down……

The Fuji switch part II: Weddings! | Ben Jacobsen

Welcome to the second part of my fuji X-T1 camera review.  This post will focus primarily on how the X-T1 performs while shooting weddings.  Part I of the review (which focuses on landscape photography) is here.  I broke the review up into two sections because the two genres are quite different and I figured it’d be nice to have two shorter reviews that are more specific to what people might want to read.  First off, let me explain that I’m NOT a full time wedding photographer.  I never have been and don’t plan to be anytime soon.  I’ve been a second shooter for some friends of mine for the last three summers which is a role I really enjoy.  I’ve also had the pleasure of shooting a few weddings for close friends and I always bring my kit along to weddings I’m invited to (that’s where the above image came from).  Because I’m a second shooter I’ve been asked not to share any images from my most recent wedding until the primary photographers wrap up their blog post…   So this image won’t have a ton of images in it for a few more weeks.  For that I apologize but I figured I’d get my thoughts written down now while they’re fresh…….
