Mirrorless & Weddings

I was incredibly flattered to be asked by a friend of mine to capture her and her hubby's wedding day last month. I loved the theme of rock'n roll and as luck have it, just down the road at Woolwich Town Hall and then a party in a pub nearby,  I was even more over the moon when they wanted most of it to be captured in a candid format with the exception of a few posed family pictures as this is my default style and at my happiest capturing

It dawned on me then that I could use the mirrorless Fujifilm as a back up and second camera to my Nikon so I didn't have to swap lenses around and it is actually quite good in low light and almost soundless if you turn the mechanical shutter noise off.

As I have mentioned before the battery life is poor on the mirrorless (I only seem to get  about 285 pictures per charge, this is possibly because I have both the eye detector and back display activated) but I have invested in a few extra that I had charged up in advance and kept in my bag for an easy swap. It is also so incredibly lightweight in comparison to the Nikon with the artlens attached that you hardly notice it round your neck.

It's a stressful time I find when you get back home to download and go through the pictures to see that you have captured those special moments and that they are sharp and not blown out or too dark before choosing which ones to post edit, I was very pleased with the results and here are a few pictures from the day.
