Danielle and Marc Married | Fiji Wedding Natural Light Photography

Danielle and Marc got married and Fiji showed them every colour under the sun. It’s no secret I’m all over natural light like it’s my best friend, but in this case, given the epic surroundings, I decided to try and use this blog post to show what natural light can do. There is no off camera lighting in any of these images. Although in full disclosure, I did break out the reflector a few times…

    Oh Mary, I could look at these again and again, what utterly stunning images. I love the ones of the newly weds by the sea, breath taking – and how you captured the intimate moments between them – the glance they exchanged at the alter – just ever so beautiful xxxx

    Wow, Fiji. Great locale, and you used it wonderfully. The bride was beautiful. More than that, though, you caught some amazing moments. That shot with dad looking on will be treasured.

    So I started listing my favourites… and then realised there is no point really as all of them are so good! Those starting from number 26 are simply amazing! ALL of them.
