My Favourite Images From Oehlers Photography

It’s a very special birthday week next week for photographer Cathy Higgins from Oehlers Photography and I thought, what better time to share with you some of my very favourite images from her portfolio.

Based in Nottingham, but in demand by brides and grooms across the UK, Cathy creates a a vibrant, eclectic mix of imagery which is essential for great wedding photographs. A wedding day is made up of so many moments and moods and Cathy is one of those highly experienced photographers who is comfortable morphing herself into the moment and capturing those special events as they unfold. Blending ethereal portraits, artistic styling and candid ‘real’ moments, Cathy frames each scene from your wedding story with texture and movement. Her artistic eye spots moments of opportunity, perhaps when the light is just right or the scenery demands to be featured in a dramatic pose. Working as a two camera team with her husband Brian, {whom I am really informed is the master of veil ‘swooshing’ – see image below!} together they work their magic to create so much more than ‘just a wedding photo’.

But it is often the unexpected that creates the best images; those moments no-one is prepared for, that just ‘happen’ in a split-second, and it is then you’ll want a photographer who anticipates and responds with lightning quick speed to capture the moment. Cathy steals those moments of laughter and tears, tenderness and fun and creates a storybook of real emotions from your day.

I’ve been proud to share Cathy’s images for over three years now since we first met back in 2015. If you’d like to see more of her work or check dates, you can contact Cathy via her Wedding Collective page or call her on 0115 9736598. 

Happy birthday Cathy! We hope you have a wonderful day x

The Defining Moment

The Defining Moment

by Massey Photography

The art and the beauty of photography, and surely the aim of every photographer, is to perfectly capture and freeze a moment in time. This moment is very often fleeting and may not even be possible to experience with the naked eye. Bresson, one of the 20th Century greatest photographers, called this the “defining moment”, a moment that is captured and composed beautifully and exposed perfectly. Weddings, by their very nature, have many “defining moments”. I make it my aim at every wedding I shoot to capture these moments so that my bride and groom will have many memories to look back on and remember their day by.

Many of these moments will not even have been seen by themselves, or even if they have will have occurred so quickly that they may not have registered it. I have captured some incredible moments at weddings over the past few years and if I had not been there to capture them in my own unique style they would have been lost forever. I like to think that the quality of my work and my ability to consistently capture these moments helps to keep the magic of a wedding day alive for my clients to relive over the years.

There are a number of images that I particularly love that really show my ability to capture and compose these images, such as a groom wiping away a tear from his bride during the ceremony, dad’s first look at his daughter in her wedding dress, bridesmaid reactions at seeing a bride in her dress, young girl looking on with joy during the first dance, a mum crying during speeches and a flower girl yawning during ceremony. These are just a few of amongst hundreds that I could have chosen.

These images show the power of good quality photography and how essential it is, if you value outstanding photography at your wedding how important it is to have a great professional at your wedding, these images cannot be produced without professional knowledge and expertise.
