Tina Turner and German music producer Erwin Bach wanted to make sure that their wedding wouldn’t be disturbed, so the ceremony, with its 120 celebrity guests including Oprah Winfrey and Bryan Adams, took place last Sunday on Lake Zurich at Turner’s Villa Algonquin estate behind high walls. But freelance photographer in Toronto knew a snapshot of the celebration would fetch a pretty penny, decided to fly a remote-controlled drone over the wedding to get a picture. Meier’s plan was derailed though — Swiss police ordered the photographer to land the aircraft and confiscated his memory card. However, Swiss tabloid photographer Toto Marti did manage to snap a photo of the event from within a small airplane. They had expected that photographers would try to move in from the lake on boats but it came as a big surprise that the fight for celebrity photos would go airborne. Photographer will come and start with the details at the hotel. Dress, shoes, invitation, rings, bridesmaid dresses, perfume, jewelry, and flowers. After those details have been photographed the wedding photographer will turn their attention to the women and their photojournalistic getting ready photos. This is where the wedding photographer begins to capture moments and build the story of the day. After the bride is in her dress an experienced photographer will often have a first look with the parents-so dad and mom will come in and see their baby girl for the first time in her wedding gown. Meanwhile the second photographer is with the men and taking candid shots of them tying their ties and just hanging out being men before the ceremony. As the bride walks down the aisle at the ceremony the second photographer is taking shots of the grooms expression, and the main photographer is photographing the processional with the bridesmaids and the bride walking down the aisle. After the ceremony the wedding photographer will (with help from the appointed family member) gather up the full family for their portraits. The wedding photographer will begin with the brides side of the family and break it down until the smallest family breakdown (mom and bride, dad and bride, siblings and bride) have been photographed. The wedding photographer will then move onto the grooms family and do the same thing starting with the biggest grouping and breaking it down to the smallest groups. When that is finished it is time to photograph the bridal party. An experienced wedding photographer cairns should be able to get three different posed bridal party shots done in 15 minutes. From there the photographer will photograph just the group of men, and then just the group of women. These two groupings should only take 10-15 minutes and the wedding photographer should know exactly how they want each member of the party or grouping to stand. From there the wedding photographer will take a few portraits of the bride, then the groom, and finally finish up (this whole thing from family to finish should take an hour) with the bride and the groom together. At this point the wedding photographer turns everyone over to the coordinator and the band or DJ. They are in charge of how the reception flows. The wedding photographer will photo journalistic capture the moments from this point on. Even the formalities like the first dances, cake cutting, and bouquet throwing are done in a candid style. Hello Magazine was their “official” media partner and published the whole event sans aircraft.
