High-Fashion Flash Wedding Photography Inspiration: Shoot Day

Flash – ahh-ahh, saviour of your 2022 weddings! Ok, that’s maybe not as catchy as what Brian May wrote, but flash IS having a major resurgence this year, and I am 100% here for it. Maybe thanks to the Peltz-Beckham wedding, maybe because it’s major party vibes and if 2022 is anything, after two years of intimate, peaceful moments, it’s year of the Party Wedding. In your face flash is universally flattering. Back when I shot for DJ and Ministry of Sound magazines this was simply how we shot.

We teamed up with jumping-jack flash himself, Lee Allen, for our latest shoot day in Glasgow. With Lena Sabala on styling, we kept things carefree and effortless with jumpsuit from Scottish boutique Unbridaled. Lee is the king of thinking outside the box when it comes to lighting so he had us running around the city tackling everything from full midday sun to a dimly-lit stairwell, and our superstar couple Ryan and Anna took everything in their stride, looking like the VIPs that they are.

If you need some help with handling different lighting situations now the season is in full swing, want to add some party-hard pictures to your portfolio or want to help make your couples look good on the dance floor, our next Flash Workshop is in London on July 21st.
