We chat to Nick Ghionis who has been shooting weddings for almost 30 years and you can tell by his work and hear in his voice that he loves his job. You can’t fake passion. Whether he’s travelling to an exotic Mediterranean location or the suburbs of Melbourne, Nick is invested in creating authentic, original and beautiful images. In this interview, Nick shares his approach to planning, posing and shooting a wedding and the importance of capturing the person rather than hacking out a one size fits all formula.
We discuss: how Nick plans for a destination wedding, lessons learned from his first wedding, shooting intuitively, how his first jobs as a security guard, waiter and barista taught him how to connect with his clients, how he plans for a shoot, what a second shooter does, shooting with the Olympus mirrorless system, favourite lenses and lighting systems, the importance of capturing the couple on the day and not shooting to a formula, and what you need to your pre-wedding checklists and interviews.
