Adventures in Wedding Photography

Hi there, welcome to our wedding photography blog. Here we share our favourite weddings, engagement shoots and other wedding related things. If you would like to see more wedding images you can see featured weddings here or view our wedding gallery here.

Beautiful Brides

Some photographers I have known have only wanted to shoot “good looking” couples. In my experience all brides look beautiful.

Turn to the left..Fashion..Beep Beep.

I work with a clothing designer Bobafrique every now and again. A few weeks ago he contacted me as he had a new collection on the catwalk for London Fashion Week. The collection was called ButterFLY Heaven. It was a new direction for him as, for the first time, there was a women’s line included. I think that the clothes are awesome and he has really surpassed himself this time.

Initially we had a location shoot for the menswear followed by a studio shoot for womenswear and some additional men’s outfits. The outdoor shoot was a real challenge as we had gale force winds and rain and we had to abandon the lighting when I thought my assistant was going to do a “Mary Poppins” and fly off.

Once fashion week is done we are going off to shoot some editorial concept stuff which is my most favourite as it allows such creative freedom.

Hope you like them…

Love Art Forever

OK so it’s 2011 and so far we’re off to a great start. I’ve really got a buzz about this year. There’s not enough hours in the day and I’m working really hard. There’s a lot of exciting stuff happening this year and you can follow it as it happens right here.

First, welcome to my new blog. “Love.Art.Forever”. My name is Kevin Belson and I am a professional wedding photographer based in Wiltshire. I expect you have heard the usual “relaxed, informal, contemporary” style. Well I would say that my style is certainly modern and I like to direct shots but that doesn’t mean that I’ll be all over you at your wedding. What it does mean that I will be there, mostly in the background but also directing when necessary to ensure that your photographs are the best they can be. Your photographs will stay with you for the rest of your lives and will be handed down from generation to generation. I’m not there to record the day. I am there to make sure that we turn the LOVE into ART that will live FOREVER (see?).

Why choose me for your big day? I’m forever being inspired by other people’s work. Not just photographers but graffiti artists, architects, designers artists and more. I am forever evolving, every shoot is better than the last. But photography is only half the story. The rest is in the detail. The service the extras, the personality. I show every picture. I personally deliver every album. When you choose your album and I design it, it is a part of me that I give away. You ¬†could say that you become one of the Kevin Belson Owners Club. It’s very exclusive.

I’m going to start with an oldie and we’ll take it from there. Over the next few weeks I’ll bring you up to date. It won’t all be weddings but we’ll start with one. This is Chris and Annette just over a year ago. They got married at Clearwell Castle. A beautiful location in the Forest Of Dean. As you can see the weather was (mostly) glorious with only a slight downpour when we went outside for the group shots. It didn’t last thankfully and everyone had a fantastic day.
