Engagement Party for Paul and Johnathan

March 08, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

So honoured to be able to photograph the engagement party for Paul and Johnathan in March 2019 and held at Stockton Cricket Club.  Met them both a few years ago when I photographed a friends of theirs wedding.  Since then I have also photographed Pauls 30th birthday party and now their engagement.




One of the challenges of the night was to get a photo of everyone at the party in one big group!  I gathered everyone on the dance floor with the help of Darren from Darren Brown's Disco.  Always get help with bigger groups...it makes life a little easier!  So the challenge here was to ensure the light was good and that everyone is in focus.  I was using a Canon 5D4 with a 24-70mm f2.8 lens.  I was shooting in Manual with ISO400, 1/200sec and f11.  I bounced my flash off the ceiling and increased the power of the flash to +3.  I did a few test photos and they looked good.  Now to get many many people to look at the camera at the sametime and to smile as well is a challenge in itself!  But I'm proud to say that I nailed it.  


Paul and Johnathan, all the very best to you both for the future. <3
