2012 was a wonderful year for wedding and partnership photography at mimsaxl.photography. I worked with a number of lovely couples through the year, creating images for them to treasure, using a mix of informal reportage-style photography and more formal posed group shots. I met some great individuals, all nicely loved up. I haven’t blogged about many of the weddings, so thought I’d catch up a bit now, as we head, full speed, into the 2013 season. I’ve decided to start with the last wedding of 2012, that of Georgia & Gerry, in December at Hawkwell House in Iffley.
I don’t always cover the couple getting ready, and it is a treat when I do. You can get some really atmospheric and personal shots, particularly of brides, in the often highly-charged hour before the guests arrive: moments of pause and reflection, last-minute nerves, laughter and warmth between close friends, all there to be captured. Yum! Georgia was really pleased with her getting ready shots, as that time was a bit of a blur and her friends look gorgeous. Here are a few favourites.
