Creative somerset golden hour wedding photographer

Hacker’s second somerset wedding of the season saw him try out some new tricks: new props for the ring flash, new styles of location for the couple’s photographs and a new approach to capture golden hour wedding photography.

Aram and Mark tied the knot at Christ Church in Clifton before celebrating at Clevedon Hall. Hacker’s long time partner in photography crime – make up artist Isabel While, worked her magic on Aram at The Bristol Marriot Royal Hotel on Park Street, while the boys met at The Quadrant in Clifton for some Dutch courage.

Before the day, Hacker hunted out some new locations in suburban Clevedon. Industrial estates with bright and white garage doors created some interesting backdrops – even if not to everyone’s taste.

“One passer-by told us she thought it was a terrible location to take a somerset wedding couple.” explains Hacker. “But the bright colours and simple textures contrast well against the couple and help highlight them in the images.”

During the speeches, Aram’s Korean Father impressed everyone by doing his in English before it was Mark’s to turn to impress by carrying out a Korean wedding tradition. To demonstrate the Groom is worthy of their daughter’s hand in marriage, he must carry out a task of the parents. So Mark was instructed to pick up Aram and do five squats! A task he completed with flying colours – although if he’d failed, were not sure what the parents were planning to do.

After the meal Hacker spotted a small shaft of light appearing out of the clouds during the golden hour, the last hour of light as the sun sets.

Hacker told us: “It can be difficult to persuade a couple to shoot more images during the golden hour as by then they’re well into the swing of their wedding. But, if they’re up for it – like Aram and Mark were, you end up with some of the money shots from the day.”

Speaking of money, the new prop for the ring flash worked fantastically. “My favourite shot was when Aram stuffed loads of the cash down her top – that girl knows how to let her hair down.”
