Sunday Wedding With Chris Brown

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, March 9, 2008

Last Sunday was a fabulous experience second shooting for Chris Brown at the North Perth Macedonian Church. Chris operates Small Package Films ,… and YES good things do come in small packages! Lots of colour and symbolism. Heaps of really friendly people. Chris is a class photographer; but he’s also a brilliant organiser. Pulled together the photographs and the video guys with great aplomb. All worked like clockwork despite all the little delays that inevitably come with wedding timetables 🙂 But that’s the way of weddings isn’t it.

The church decor was stunning. Ceiling paintwork was amazing. Look closely at the little pics at the bottom of this. (by the way the officiating clergy was Very Reverend Father Stanko Jovanovski – he was brilliant; has a fabulous sense of occasion, humourous, and extremely personable.)

Heaps of photos I show, but to different here’s some of the unofficial bridesmaid.

Never come across that title before and it had me wondering til I saw her. She has an amazing personality, full of life and just exudes positivity. But the real reason for the title is that she has less than 4 weeks to go before the birth of her child. So where does an 8+ month pregnant lady get her energy!!!. Her other half, Tony, was one of the groomsmen. She hadn’t had a maternity shoot done so I made sure we captured some photo’s of here.

The ‘unofficial bridesmaid’

All in all a terrific experience in second shooting (something I hadn’t done before but maybe should have. It gives a very different perspective of a wedding. More on another post to come.

Melissa was fabulous to photograph on her recent pre-wed shoot. Here’s a pic of her listening to what I have in mind for this part of the shoot. Even then she had this amazing smile!!! I just know we’re going to get brilliant wedding pics of her and Sean. Here’s one with a bit of extra post processing. For family and friends the proofs are up for viewing on the AkessonPhoto gallery [ click on that and it will take you to the gallery] A password is required – it’s Melissa’s surname.

Listening Attentatively


Tomorrow I’m second shooting a Macedonian wedding with Chris Brown. Chris takes fabulous wedding photos,… and this one is going to be huge and heaps of fun. All the celebrations and ceremony, symbolism and splendor that goes with the mix of traditional values in a relaxed contemporary society.

And I have some really great pics of one year old Secoyah to come soon.
