winter wedding

Congratulations to Engager Jacob McCarthy, winner of Engage Live Photo of the Week #18 for this festive image ‘Winter Wedding’.

‘Grabbed this one at a winter wedding at the Celtic Manor a few days ago,’ writes Jacob. ‘I’ve been dreading these last couple of winter weddings but I’m really enjoying the speed and pressure of getting things done before dark and having such a variety of shots with the weather and light changing all the time. It was taken with a 5D Mark 3 and 135mm L at f.2. This was shot through a Christmas tree outside the world famous Celtic Manor with a Speed light triggered behind the subject to make them pop. The weather was on and off all day with continuously changing lighting situations, but I managed to grab a variety of shots and this rounded off the whole day and set perfectly.’
