The Importance of an Engagement Shoot

   Engagement sessions are one of my favourite things to photograph. It's a great opportunity to get to know my couples before their wedding and see how they interact with each other. A lot of people don't feel comfortable being photographed. This gives them an idea of how I work and puts them at ease before the most important day of their lives! Reasons I think engagement shoots are great and a must have....  The more time you spend with your photographer the more comfortable you'll be in front of the lens. A relaxed and happy couple make for much nicer natural images of the two of you. Remember, your photographer will be with you for HOURS on your wedding day capturing all those intimate moments and preserving one of the most emotional days of your life. Not only does this give me the opportunity to get to know you but you also get to know me!   Ladies...this can be the perfect time to do a trial run for your hair/make-up! Wedding make-up tends to be heavier for photos so…

Gardner T Hamilton

I have been a Pro Wedding photographer for 29 years. I often analyze myself with "What's my style" and "do I have a style" type of questions but after years of travelling and shooting with such a diverse range for clients, cultures, ceremonies and traditions it is clear that my couples are my style . The couples who reserve me do so because we are compatible as people and the result is then mutually pleasing. As with this array of wedding images from around the globe I always look for the possibility to include something personal to each couple, be it their love for Chess, Skiing, music, cycling or even super hero's. An image with a personal connotation becomes more and more valued by couples as time goes on. After over 1000 wedding assignments completed it is clear for me that telling the story of the wedding to the Bride and Groom through images has become rather easy now , after all, they wrote and star in the …

St Ives Harbour Hotel Wedding by Jon O’Connell Photography

The wedding of Tom and Karen who were married at the St Ives Harbour Hotel was blessed with some beautiful weather. Neither Tom or Karen were from the area but St Ives held some special reasons or memories for them to make the decision to get married here. Both staying at the lovely Harbour Hotel, I was able to move between the preperations of both the bride and groom, documenting each story leading up to the wedding. Tom seemed very relaxed with his brother and best man all getting ready before heading down to the bar for a drink and to meet their guests. Karen was busy getting ready with her bridesmaid and a few close friends, also looking quite relaxed and all enjoying themselves. I took pictures of some of the details that Karen had scattered around as well as the shoes and her beatiful wedding dress which I hung in a recessed window space so as to also encompass the beautiful sea and coastline in the background. Once Karen was in her dress we took some pictures…

A Truro Cathedral Wedding

By Jon O'Connell Photography Edward and Jessica’s Truro Cathedral Wedding Edward and Jessica were married in early August 2016 and I had been asked to be their wedding photographer Cornwall. After looking at my previous wedding day photography, Edward and Jessica had decided they liked my documentary style and ability to capture the emotions and essence of a wedding day in a natural and unposed way.  They had stipulated many times that they only wanted minimal posing and mainly for the family formals.  The rest of the day, my aim was to capture everyone having fun and hopefully a few tears of joy. Edward and Jessica’s wedding took place at Truro Cathedral which is an absolutely stunning place for a Cornwall wedding photographer to document. The sun was shining as I headed to the bride and her maids for the preperations.  They had a beautiful house with tall ceilings and big windows allowing for plenty of opportunities for pictures…
