Posing Wedding Rings

Bride & Bouquet, this shot was taken as we were waiting for our golf carts to arrive. The bride and I were chatting about the service and the guests. Since I was there to take pictures, I began to walk around her and get some detailed shots. As I took shots of her, her dress, etc. I continued to ask her questions about the guests and her family, this get her to relax allowing me to shoot around her. I was able to compose just by using the available light an background.

This is one of my favorites from this day, to me this photo shows her strength and at the same time I can see her feminine side.

Caught this moment as the bridal party was lining up to enter the reception hall. I am not sure who was more excited about the wedding the flower girl or the bride. 🙂

Blessing the Wedding

Wedding Wishes

At a recent wedding the guests were given a small card where they wrote wishes, blessings, and advice for the newlyweds. At various times during the meal one or more cards were taken from the box and read aloud. I loved this as it made the reception feel more intimate.

I managed to capture the bride and groom dancing in the background with some of their flowers in the foreground. The lighting was not the greatest to capture a clear shot of them dancing. This was on of the alternatives I came up with.

I love this shot, I managed to capture the Bride as she entered the church. We were two photographers at this wedding, I wanted to capture it from a non traditional point of view. I love how the others are all taking photos of her as she makes her entrance.

I have been really swapped so I am unable to post everyday like I really want, I hope that this is only a season of busyness.

Both of these were taken as part of a class that I am taking. As I was waiting to take a turn shooting our happy copule, I started to play with the my camera. I then changed my persecutive as well as my focus and came up with these two shots. I did a little editing in LightRoomwhere I changed the saturation and vibrance levels.

The end result was that these were not part of our assignment however these were more for me. I am learning to use a shorter lens thanks to a good friend of mine Ann. You can see her work at www.annabisphotography.com.

Thanks Ann for helping me.
