I spent a lot of time, money and energy on learning how to shoot! We love extending our knowledge of all things gear, lighting, business, and wedding to those who are starting out or want to take another step forward in their photographic career!
We decided to go a little more on the delicate side for this rough, beachy setting. She brought her purple gown she wore to prom, which mixed well with her red hair and the greenery in the backdrop, and created extremely satisfying pops of color!
Since it is important to know how to light in different scenarios, we went into some shaded areas and lit the subjects to help accentuate them even with very diffused ambient light.
Me and Brittany went out and played around with some high speed sync for a little bit!
Toward the end of the shoot we found a more open area with some clouds in the background so I could get some wide shots of her with the 35mm Sony Zeiss
There is no denying the impact Sony is having in the digital camera world. They are answering all of the negative feedback and responses about their product line with gear that delivers knockout punches!
I was actually in the water, and had to bob up and down out of a squat as the waves were coming in, in order to avoid a soaked bum!
The G Master behaved beautifully. Looking at the monitor and watching the fall-off move so fluently across her face was breathtaking. 1.4, 1.7, 2.2 so crisp. 3.2? just as you would expect from a lens of this caliber.
Now it was time for a wedding dress! I brought two of my wedding dresses and she ended up picking the ballgown style. We went back to the vines where we were able to get quite a few poses done quickly because Hannah knew what she was doing.
The next door neighbors unexpectedly got involved and surprised the couple by lighting up the night sky with fireworks! Also... there was a fire-spinner, I'm just saying!
Everything was handmaid by the bride and her helpers. And they were beautiful!! The color scheme was one of my favorites, and the theme played hand in hand with the venue and the feel of the ceremony.
