The Bride and Groom on the Bridge

Love in the Limo

I really enjoy making documentary style images like this when given the opportunity. It was especially difficult yet still fun in this case when I wedged myself in the back of the crowded limo as the highly intoxicated wedding party departed the reception. The driver forgot I was in there taking photos and drove away with me still on board.

Ten Second Portrait

I photographed a wedding the other day and was scheduled to photograph the groom and his party in this antique barn adjacent to the wedding venue. They were supposed to arrive in time to allow for an hour and a half of photography prior to the ceremony. Of course they were an hour and a half late and exactly when they arrived at the barn for photos the wedding coordinator arrived and announced that photo time was over and the gentlemen were needed immediately at the wedding venue. I quickly gathered everyone for a group shot as the wedding coordinator protested and then as everyone turned around and was running out of the barn I asked the groom to stop and sit on this barrel so that I could at least squeeze in one formal portrait. I plopped a light stand down, moved to the side and fired off this shot. As I checked the screen on the camera to see how the lighting looked the groom hopped down and ran off, so like it or not, this is his formal portrait. Lucky for me I had steady hands when I snapped the shot, I looked later at the camera data and realized the shutter speed was all the way down to 1/10th of a second, yikes!

Tears of Joy

Ive been shooting a few weddings lately and thought I would post something from the most recent one here today for a change of pace. When it comes to weddings I have to admit that I’m not really a fan of the posed shots and I truly prefer to try and capture genuine moments of expression.
