2012 Kevin Mullins – Wedding Photographer Showreel
The secret diary of a wedding photographer….So, here we are again. Amazing. It’s January, 2013 already and I’m about to publish my show reel of favorite images from last year. I honestly can’t believe how quick last year went. I photographed 40 weddings throughout the year and I’d like to thank each and every one of those clients for their support and business. I wish you all the very best futures together.
2013 is looking busy too. I’m nearly three quarters fully booked with some amazing weddings scheduled in throughout the year.
Being a wedding photographer gets a lot of bad press, but I can honestly say it’s a very cool job. I work bloody hard as a wedding photographer and I know that my clients appreciate the results. The reportage style that I shoot in, of course, is not to everyone’s tastes and I fully appreciate that.
However, for me, an image needs to captivate me and move me. When I shoot my weddings I’m constantly looking for those precious moments, the little look, the touch, the feel and the unexpected is often at the extremes of the composition. I genuinely believe an ordinary picture can be made into a spectacular capture with just the slightest shift of the eyes, or the movement of a little finger.
When you look through this slideshow, keep that in mind, watch for those moments, the eye contact and the love and emotion that hopefully has been captured. As a reportage wedding photographer I’m often asked “what about the details!!!”….they are there, in context of course but it’s so very important to me that I capture those wonderful tiny moments, candidly and without interference.
None of these wedding photographs are staged or directed. It’s observation without orchestration.
Please, as always, feel free to share on social media (ah, go on….you know you want to) and I’ve enabled comments below should you wish to ask any questions. I’ll reply to them all.
Relax, turn the sound up and let me know what you think in 8 and half minutes time.

The above are all in Black and White, but of course I shoot a great deal of colour images too and I will be putting some more slideshows online soon exploring colour images more.
