Montego Bay Wedding Photographer | Ashley & Garret |
Vincent Opoku

How do I put into words all the things that took place during Ashley & Garret’s Destination Wedding in Montego Bay, Jamaica? These guys are from Newfoundland, the most Eastern Province in Canada. Temperatures during the winter months can drop to -25°C. So put them on a Caribbean Island for a week with lots of sunshine, temperatures in the region of +30°C, the Caribbean Sea, some good Rum and in the company of 40 other cool and crazy Canadians and there is bound to be lots of fun. In all honesty, Ashley did warn me in advance “I don’t know if you’ve heard much about Newfoundlanders but there are a famous breed of people here in the western part of the world and I just know that the week is going to be riot!” Ashley and Garret jumping off the cliff together at Rick’s Cafe in Negril the day after their wedding remains one of my favourite moments ever as a wedding photographer. Don’t worry Ash, I won’t tell anyone that you was scared to death about the whole process. The wedding day itself took place on the 10 year anniversary to the day that they went on their first date. How cool is that?! And I swear their two kids Rae and GiGi are the cutest ever! We still keep in touch, the odd text and FaceTime session here and there. We even spent two days doing touristy stuff this summer when they visited London. I guess it is safe to say that I have made some friends for life now, and it all began on the beautiful Island of Jamaica earlier this year……..

Punjab travelogue and my X100s | Sinbad Phgura

For me photography has been a life long passion , I got my first a square 35mm box tammy camera at the age of nine and and have been shooting ever since. I use mostly digital format cameras now, but not much has changed subject-wise, it’s people that I like to capture most, working with natural light & keeping the whole process as simple as possible. The magic for me has always been in the character study, to capture the honesty of the moment, & to connect with the soul somehow. That’s why India is such a joy to shoot, with all of it’s humanity right there in front of you to see, smell, hear & touch! I love the light, it’s incredible how its shades, textures & changes everything it touches throughout the day. I’ve been around the Fujifilm X system for a while now, one of my best friends Alex Lambrechts shoots with it & I know that these cameras are capable of stunning results! But I myself have so far have resisted to try one. It’s only when you have the camera in your hand and you have to shoot with it for a period of time, adjusting your mindset from dslr to rangefinder that the magic happens. Equipped with the Fuji X100s and a Millican camera bag I was off on my journey, Qatar Airways to Amritsar & into the heartland of the Punjab for my nephew’s wedding…….

Rakhee & Jack | Hindu Wedding Photographer | Vincent Opoku

My favourite moment? Everything! I mean how do you pick a favourite from moments such as Rakhee and Jack’s colourful faces by the end of the Blessing Ceremony, the immense dancing with sticks to bring the Mendhi ceremony to a close, or Jack riding along a busy London street on a horse – a horse which happened to be the secret wedding gift that Rakhee got for him. What about the fight for the rings, or watching planes fly over the conservatory at Syon house and did I mention that I even got some Mehndi done on my arm? I love you guys man, thank you for such an amazing cultural experience, I could so do it all over again! Rakhee and Jack, I am glad to have met you and glad to have you as friends now. Keep Smiling.  I Contemplated on blogging each day separately but I think one BIG post will do a better job at telling the whole story. Happy viewing……

Fujifilm X-Series for Wedding Photography |
X-Pro 1 & X100S Review | V. Opoku

After shooting weddings exclusively with the Fujifilm X-Pro 1 and X100S cameras for about 19 months, here are my thoughts and findings on the Fujifilm X-Series for Wedding Photography. Now this is not a technical review but rather a general conversation with my good friend and fellow Wedding Photographer, Jonathan Ellis which segued into a discussion on my experience shooting weddings with the Fujifilm X-Series cameras. I decided to hit the record button on my phone and here is a transcript of some of the topics we discussed. I don’t even think this is a format for writing reviews, but I hope it works out OK and the topics discussed provides an insight for anybody out there considering the Fujifilm X-Series for Wedding Photography, be it exclusively or to supplement their existing DSLR systems.

What to expect:

Well my name is Vincent, but commonly known as V ; so whenever V appears before a body of text, that was me talking/responding to Jonathan’s questions. For consistency sake and laziness on my part, Jonathan will be J in this article. Jonathan asks the questions and I respond ; I share my experience on the Fujifilm X-Series for Wedding Photography, my likes and dislikes, the strength and weakness of the system as a whole, the things to improve on and my conclusion…….

Italy: A weekend, a wedding and the Fuji X-E2 | Charlene Winfred

At the start of September, I headed to the Puglia region in Italy to shoot Mali and Bram’s wedding. Mali is my niece (although we are the same age; the family tree is complicated), and living continents apart as we do, we don’t get to participate in the big moments in each other’s lives much. So their big day was a special day for me too. The wedding itself was a weekend long affair. The bride and groom had arranged for an small group of their closest friends and family to celebrate their big day, by enjoying a relaxed time together in the idyllic Italian rural setting that is Masseria Montenapoleone. My good old X-Pro 1 was showing signs of imminent failure after the last 2 years of rough handling – files were randomly getting corrupted, and a quick look into this by Fuji’s service department suggested that it could be a sensor issue. Luckily, Fuji Nordic had lent me an X-E2 for the summer, so my gear for this event consisted of……..

X-T1 does weddings | John Caz

…. its been nearly 8 months since I got my hands on the X-T1 and I have used this camera under all possible conditions. I’ve shot weddings, baptisms, concerts, fashion, babies, street, wildlife with a 300mm Nikkor and a Kiwi adapter, lightning strikes under rain and wind, landscapes, long exposures and the list goes on. The Fuji X-T1 for my needs is the perfect tool. It may at times find it hard to grab focus when being pushed to its limits under some extreme lighting conditions such as very low light or bright light directly behind the subject but this is a very rare situation, in the last 8 months i only remember a couple of times when this has happened. Would a DSLR have done better – maybe, but overall, the X-T1’s performance has left me more than satisfied. The future is looking bright for the Fuji X series of cameras.

Fujifilm X-T1 Review: Perspective from a real wedding |
Daniel K Cheung

Specifications on paper look good and all but real world use is where its at (or at least for me anyway). You have no doubt heard of the Fujifilm X-T1 and you are probably here because you want to know how well it performs. Not on paper. Not just image quality. But the whole package. Disclaimer: The opinions expressed in the following Fujifilm X-T1 review are that of my own alone. No third party has endorsed or paid/requested for the following comments. I am by no means a professional reviewer. The following article describes my experiences with the Fujifilm X-T1 as a professional wedding photographer. Worry not, this will not read like an infomercial. We’ve all seen Fujifilm’s endorsements. They’re cringeworthy. To some, I am an indecisive gear whore who would be a better photographer if I settled on something. Others have described me elsewhere as a nobody. Nevertheless, I hope the following comments will help you in your decision making process……..

Gitte & Thomas | Jonas Rask

Another wedding photography post today. Again I was asked by a very dear friend of mine (Also being the best colleague in the world) to take photos at her wedding. I was also invited as guest, so I had double roles to fill! Again the images was taken using the x-pro1 with the 35mm f/1.4, the X-T1 with the 56mm f/1.2 and the trusty x100s. I wish Thomas and Gitte all the happiness in the world…….

The Wedding of Samantha & Richard Demko,
Chiddingstone Castle, Kent. | Steve Wood

Yesterday I assisted in the coverage of the wedding of Samantha & Richard Demko which was held at Chiddingstone Castle Kent.   From the minute I arrived I knew this was a very very special wedding, no expense spared…the Bridal party were stunning, and Samantha the bride was mind glowingly beautiful.  She had a glow about her that only a woman in love could radiate.  I get to see so many stressed brides, Samantha certainly wan’t one of them – she had everything planned to the tee.   The weather was looking unsettled during the bridal preparations, and it looked to thwart an outside wedding which they had planned….in the end the sun did good and followed was a beautiful ceremony held in the Orangery to the rear of the castle in the quaint gardens. Here are few images I made from the day, as always my X-Pro1 is performing flawlessly- discrete, understated and always a conversation piece. Sam & Rich if you are reading this I mean it when I say “It was pleasure to be part of your big day” – the boys and girls were immaculately turned out and everyone made me feel very welcome to be your photographer….
