Fox Photography shares insights from capturing Nicole and Luke’s Boho inspired Colourful fun Airship37 wedding.
They wanted the vibe and the look to be colourful and fun.
They achieved this with their very bold, bright and colourful theme with the decor, flowers and details (down to Luke’s bowtie and the inside of his jacket). They also encouraged their guests to also wear bold, bright colours. Our editing style is very colourful and vibrant which meant that we were able to accurately depict the colours and vibe of the day.
There was an intimate lounge style feeling to wedding styling in the modern industrial space that created a comfortable boho setting for the guests. How did this wedding style translate into the guest experience and how you captured it?
Nicole & Luke wanted the guests to enjoy themselves and have fun during the day.
The comfortable boho setting meant guests could relax and chat.
They could move around different tables, the dining was not a standard sit down but they had different food stations set up which meant there was a relaxed party vibe.
What are some of the key things that Nicole and Luke wanted to experience and also share with their guests on their wedding day and how did you highlight these priorities in the way you captured their day?
Nicole & Luke were upfront on the start about how they wanted to celebrate the day with family and friends, and wanted them all to have a good time.
You describe yourself as primarily documentary photographers who capture how things are. How did this style work so effectively to tell the story of Nicole and Luke’s wedding day?
Our primary goal is to capture the story of the day, which means more than just capturing how everything looked. Of course we capture the details and the photos which set the scene, but the real emotions, the action shots, the emotional vows, the first dance, the reaction to speeches, these are all ‘documentary’ and capture how the everything ‘felt’ so that when looking back on the photos, the couple can remember their emotions and how they felt, as well as how everything looked.
Your wedding portraits in the distillery district had the same atmosphere and sensibility as the rest of the wedding album. How do you keep a consistency running through the pictures that tie them together stylistically?
Part of this is to do with the editing (we made sure the editing was vibrant and colourful, as Nicole & Luke wanted the photos to show) but also the emotions of the day. The ceremony photos showed laughter.
Their portraits also showed fun and laughter, and really showed Nicole & Luke’s personality.
Looking back on this wedding pre- covid times what strikes you as interesting and beautiful about the album through this new lense of experience of living in covid times.
Family and friends being together, hugging and being close. We are both from the UK and have been unable to see our parents back home because of covid, so it’s bitter sweet to see families being close and celebrating together.
What do you like best about shooting all the little details of a wedding day?
We know that these little details are often important to the couple because they’ve more often than not, spent a fair bit of time deciding colours, styles, etc (there’s so much choice out there)! We capture the details because it’s important to the couple, but also because it shows the little things that bring the whole style and vibe of the wedding together. Another reason the details are important is because a lot of the details will not last, not like photos do. Flowers will wilt, food will be eaten, attire will probably not be worn again, so the photos are there to capture the details that may not withstand time.
Most important question are you up to date on the Mandalorian ?
Not up to date! Which is embarrassing seeing as Dan worked on the first season of TV show (and is in the credits)!
